  1. Same story over and over.a family dog pitbull kill a innocent sweet baby. What this like the 18th story of “family dog” pitbull that kill the owner baby niece nephew.maybe we should ban pitbull for good so innocent babies don’t have to died.there this mom on Instagram who have a baby and some type of poodle he play feed lay down with the dog guess what he’s still alive cuz he mom wasn’t dumb enough to or selfish enough to owing a pitbull with her small child.

    • Nightly I see a responsible young boy, ten or twelve. He walks three family poodles. I have zero fear he’s going to get hurt by those friendly well-behaved poodles. I DO have an irrepressible fear that he’ll be murdered–caught in the middle of a pitbull trying to slaughter those poodles.

      Then some pitbull nutter blaming it on the boy, or the poodles or whatever other nonsense excuse the Cult of Pitbull comes up with when a tragedy happens.

      So his responsible mom picked and trained pets for her responsible son and irresponsible pitbull clowns could blow that all away and destroy all their lives in seconds.

      That’s three deaths in three days on Colleen’s blog. And that’s only the ones she’s notified, about.

      When is enough, enough?

  2. Another dead baby. The “cause of death” is pitbull.

    Dead babies. Dead older people.

    When are the pitbull crowd going to accept that these dogs are to humans what lions are to gazelles?

    They are *hunting*. They generally choose the disabled, the small, the physically weak, the humans who don’t pose a threat to them.

    They are hunting humans, mauling them and eating them.

    Humans bred them to do that.

    We made them. Time to unmake them. They are not pets. They’re predators.

  3. Years ago when I was training to be a zoo docent, we were told that the Polar Bear is the only species that hunts Man. We should definitely add Pitbull to that short list.

  4. In this case, the NOPD did the right thing. Thank you, NOPD, for putting public health and safety first.

  5. The parents will suffer, but nowhere near as much as their poor baby did. And they’re probably upset that their pitbull was shot, maybe even more than they are about their child. Parents who allow their pitbulls to kill children should never have another child or pet. They aren’t fit.

    • This pitbull has sable or agouti coat color. The two genes are both dominant and can be hard to tell apart. The only color pattern which indicates mixed breeding in pitbulls is merle.
      This dog looks like a purebred pitbull to me. His markings are seen in many breeds of dogs as well as in pitbulls.

      • Rachel, I am not sure I understand about the pitbull coloring in mixes. There are so many pitbull mixes today.

        Isn’t it safe to speculate a pitbull mix when we see characteristics of, say, a GSD or Malinois with pitbull characteristics?
