« Prop B "changes" moving forward, and the need to replace the current voice against puppy mills | Main | Homeless man killed by dogs in El Paso »

February 19, 2011



Perhaps not surprisingly, Billy read an article on this (I don't know where) which said the dogs were Pitbulls. He said the entire article was about Pitbulls killing people in SC. I guess they just figured they'd toss this tragedy in too since - Rotts, Pits - eh, what's the diff? Wonder what else they got wrong?


oh Brent, Brent, Brent...Mr. Ray of Sunshine!

This remind me a little of the Kansas City, KS/Jimmie Mae McConnell fatality.

Those dogs also started out as Rottweilers and went through several breed transformations before they were finally "pit bulls", or at least one of them was.


The Huffington Post originally called them pit bulls. And they did write an article about pit bulls killing people in South Carolina, although this was the only death they mentioned by pit bulls. They threw in the Japanese Akita mauling, then dredged up a 3 year old that got bit in the head by a "pit bull." That was the extent of their "everyone needs to get the heck outta SC because the pits are killing anything that moves" article.

They have finally corrected their mistake, but the comments are now lumping rotts in with pits. Did you know that we're all AK-47 touting, gun loving nutjobs? Yeah, I didn't get that memo when we got our pit mix so we don't have a gun in our household. We also weren't told that we had to move to the ghetto so we're still living in an upperclass neighborhood. Our bad. I think my husband will hold tight to the house though. I can't see talking him into moving. But I may be able to get him to buy a gun, yo. I know. I need to work on my lingo. Or slang. Or whateva my homeboys call it these days.
