There were 8 calls about those dogs in the past month?? Then why on EARTH were they still out running at large? Why hadn't they been picked up 8 phone calls ago?

This is what makes me nuts about BSL and all that other nonsense legislation that results from attacks like this. Because had the laws already in place actually been enforced, chances are at least one of these tragedies could have been completely avoided.

Freaking ridiculous.

Preventable tragedies caused by human failure after human failure, (as well as system failure!) and yet we choose to blame dogs. This is insanity.

And, as usual, we have no expert ID on the breed. And as in ever single story, they could have been some other breed, or most likely pit mixes. If a lab mix or some other mix attacks, it is called a mixed breed dog. If a pit mix attacks, it is called a pit bull. Totally skews the stats and public opinion. Very purposeful propaganda.

Yes, this could happen with any breed. If pitbulls are banned, irresponsible owners will still have other breeds or pitbull mixes, and attacks will still occur. Of course, pitbulls are a powerful breed, which is why they have such a bad reputation. That doesn't mean they should be banned, it means most people aren't qualified to own one.

Well said KC!
I really don't understand the lack of common sense that is demonstrated over and over again by those who are supposed to be our representatives. I can't tell you how much I agree with this quote right now!
The more I see of the representatives of the people the more I admire my dogs.

YEAH! what Caped~Petbull~Crusader said.

What would the headlines have read if Cesar had pistol whipped this child instead of throwing a dog at him through a window? Gee I wonder if there was a history of violence in this home prior to this tragic incident?

Dogs only behave how they are allowed and trained to, it is every owners responsibility to maintain control over them. Domesticated animal behavior must be accountable to the owner PERIOD.

I don't understand why people can't see that until proper ownership practices are addressed, the public will be plagued with these problems regardless of breed. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! Stop misconstruing 'vicious' animals for human negligence. You wanna decrease these 'incidences?' Start targeting and prosecuting negligent dog owners. Perhaps in the NYC case, at least investigating the situation just 1 of the first 8 times might have avoided the violence in this case.
