And while this one is the owner, the folks adopting out the deadly animal should now be sued out of business. They and the owner (if not dead, like this case. Karma) should be held criminally liable.
This dog apparently came from out of state, which is a standard practice for dogs about to be put down - moving them out of state, out of province, out of country - Canada is receiving a significant number of them. Believe it or not, these are called “freedom runs” by the persons taking these dangerous dogs over state lines.
This is an inordinate love for animals over humans.
No, they shouldn’t. There are over 3 million pit bulls in the country right now. Your odds of being killed by a pit bull are significantly lower than dying of many illnesses, dying in a car accident, etc. Yeah, there are some bad pit bulls, but they are also probably the most abused breed & breed most in shelters in the country. I can only speak for my experience with pit bulls, but the pit bulls I have interacted with at rescue events and at the animal shelter have been incredibly gentle, sweet dogs.
Before the 1980s Pit Bull attacks were rare. It was Rottweilers, Dobermans, German Shepherds and Sled type dogs that made the top of the killing list. Meanwhile, Pit Bulls have been here longer than any of those other breeds. Then in the 1980s Pits started gaining in popularity with irresponsible people. In that same time period, we gained a lot immigrants, legal and illegal from Ctrl and South America. People from cultures where dog fighting is popular.
Irresponsible Pit Bull ownership and population exploded. Now you have some Pit Bull lines that go back several generations having been bred to be mean and kept by idiots.
That’s why we have so many Pit Bull attacks.
“Again, they should be muzzled while waiting to be put down. The entire breed should be put down. No exceptions, no excuses.”
I 100% agree!!!
Like Muslims, you never know which one is likely to kill you.
