You must be the only pit bull apologist left on FR.

I don't see anyone "apologizing" for what this pack of dogs did. It does sound like a neighborhood someone should be at least packing a .32 cal handgun. I wouldn't hesitate to shoot any pack of animals attempting to attack me. The owner of these dogs should be charged with some kind of crime simply for allowing these dogs to run free. This is tragic and these dogs should be put down. They are likely doing exactly what the owner trained them to do. It's not their fault but they still need to be put down and the owner should do time and pay restitution. We also don't know what this person might have done to provoke these dogs. There's normally two sides to a story and we usually only get one side of them which also why I consider these posts to be fake news.

The problem on FR is this poster, and now a few more of her villainous friends, who post this garbage on a daily basis. I believe all FR Pit Bull haters are obsessed leftists who are also anti-gun and don't believe in the 2nd Amendment. I believe all of them are cut from the same cloth as those who would take our rights away. I believe they are all radicalized leftists with a nefarious agenda.

It's the same old tired dog bites man story day after day after day after day. Who here likes to see the same headlines everyday. It's tiresome and does no one any good. Is this a newsworthy story locally? Yes. Is it something that benefits FR members? Not at all IMHO. I have tried to explain this many times to no avail. They just keep on posting this trash like we really want to see it.

I say that many suffer from Timothy Treadwell Syndrome the desire to have at your commanded a wild and dangerous animal to strike fear in others or to use to dominate others. To them they are in no danger because they are smarter, more skilled, more in control to such a point they believe that any situation they can handle and there is no danger as nothing can possible go wrong.


I mean what could possible go wrong? Ask Siegfried & Roy

It’s hard to believe that someone hasn’t already taken care of the problem themselves. Why wait for law enforcement? When little kids are in danger also? NO! NO! NO! That is so scary!

Cujo was a St Bernard. Dobermans only kill their masters.
German Shepherd used to be called police dogs and were considered dangerous. My uncle owned a motel that got robbed so he got a trained shepherd to protect the place. It answered to German commands. It would attack. My shepherd guarded my infant son with his life.

My family has had a few pit bull varieties. And some pit bull mix dogs. All sweethearts. I would personally put down any dog that wasn’t thoroughly gentle around people (that is people who weren’t attacking me or my family)

Well,I,for one, don’t trust ANY pit bull and am wary of the owners of all such proven dangerous animals;also not fond of snakes in the house..ANY house!

Lifetime NRA member and believe the Second Admendment SHOULD render unconstitutional ALL those thousands of gun laws.

The worst thing that can happen to a breed is popularity.

You’ve mentioned a few examples that led to backyard breeders and puppy mills peeing in those breeds’ respective gene pools, ultimately ruining those breeds for a while.

Only when their popularity fades and responsible breeders begin to clean up the mess do things improve, though those genetic issues never fully go away.

Unfortunately, pit bulls have become popular to the worst people generally for the worst reasons who emphasize the worst characteristics of the breed’s genetics.

Police and insurance records tell the rest of that breed’s story, even if the fan clubs won’t.

Lots of innocent people have suffered mutilation or even horrific deaths, so people could have a pit bull.

Seems a bit selfish to me, given the number and variety of other suitable dog choices.

Not sure what short of outright banning the breed for some period of time will fix that situation.

Insurance premiums are about the only price a person pays to have a pit bull versus some other breed, assuming the insurance company is told.

I just re-read my post. That wasn’t intentional. Honestly.

"assuming the insurance company is told"

My bet is that almost everyone who owns these dogs haven't said a word to their insurance companies and won't unless compelled to. As they would soon loose their coverage or they would have to pay such a premium for coverage that they couldn't afford it.

I get it, I really do.

My post was satire, cynical, deep, sarcastic satire.

I have friends with pit bulls. I’m never comfortable around their dogs, especially as I’ve visited with MY dog - a german shepherd. Those dogs go NUTZ.

Plus my direct experience working ER and urgent care. The absolute worst dog bite injuries I’ve ever seen are from pits. Those things JUST don’t let go until prey is down and/or dead.

Those friends I mentioned? The comments I made are typical of what they say about their deep cover canine terrorists just waiting for the right signal to attack.

I did some research looks like very few Insurance companies cover Pit Bulls and if they do the coverage is very limited.
