People are a bigger threat to pit bulls than pit bulls are to people




This story from Dallas is proof of that.

Two teenage boys--ages 15 and 17--set two pit bull dogs on fire. Both dogs were so badly burned that authorities euthanized them.

People tend to point out the man bites dog stories all the time when it comes to pit bulls, but I see so many more stories in the papers (not to mention first-hand situations in shelters and on our streets) in which the dogs are brutally abused by people.

59 comments:

  1. I'm greatly saddened by stories like this one, in which innocent animals become victims of horrific crimes. What angers and saddens me even more is the fact that this case involved teenagers. I have to ask, where were their parents? What kind of morals do the parents teach these children? This is just wrong...and people call these dogs violent?? The only violent creatures on this earth are humans.

    I truly believe that penalties should be much stiffer than what they are. How about a mandatory 5 year sentence or maybe public caning.

    Here's a video of part of the Candlelight Video we did in Dallas for these pitiful babies. I love my pit and can't IMAGINE anyone even looking at him cross-eyed. I would be the dangerous one, not my pittie! I spoke on behalf of pitties and the stupid myths surrounding them.

    I CAN'T BELIEVE PEOPLE CAN BE SO MEAN TO PITBULLS LIKE THAT. THEY ARE ONE OF THE MOST MISUNDERSTUD DOGS OUT THERE BECAUSE PEOPLE SAY THEY ARE MEAN AND BITE PEOPLE. BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT PEOPLE MAKE THE DOGS LIKE THAT NOT THE DOG THEMSELF. I HAVE A PITBULL AND HE IS THE MOST LOVEABLE DOG I COULD EVER HAVE.

    Why? Would someone do that, I have 3 pitbulls and there my life, I wouldn't have any other animal. There smart and protective, noone would ever get close enough to my dogs to do anything like that, I still can't understand why people would be so crule to an animal , aniamls have feelings just like we do, those boys should go tho the pain and hurt as those dogs did.

    there is no need to do anything to a dog unless it seriously does some thing to some one bruttally it all depends on how the dog is brought up

  35. I like to keep a rather liberal comments policy on this blog--pretty much, if it doesn't slander someone, isn't incoherent, and isn't completely vulgar, I'll post your comment. But I'm seeing an increasing number of extremely disturbing and violent comments in response to this thread. I agree (obviously) that what the kids did to this dog was truly disturbing, but this is not a forum for people to express their desire for violent revenge on some seriously troubled children.

    So please try to keep your comments clean--no threats of violence and keep the vulgarity to a dull roar and we're all good. Thanks.

    personally i love pitbulls and if your going to rais a dog with this much power you better do it rite or your better off shooting it then... never get an older pitbull. train him when hes a pup and have him interact with kids and other dogs as much as you can while there to youn to hurt anything when your done doing this for the 2-3 pup years you will have a safe dog

  50. Whoever those punks are deserve treatment just as bad. Who in their right mind would harm such a beautiful dog. It literally had tears in my eyes. Thats ridiculous that their parents couldn't raise them well enough to know that cruelty is not right. They deserve to be locked up for a good long time. Abuse to a dog should be just as important to abuse to humans.

  51. My best friend Zoey is the best pitbull ever!!If my girl was attacked and burnt like that..U better believe whoever done that would experience WORSE treatment. Stupid punk kids get away with murder because they're 17 and not 18..wtf!?!?Hope the Dallas Police have them criminals on file! Makes me sick to my stomach!! Hope them pieces of $h!t burn and get what they deserve!!

    wow What is wrong with u? you might as well shoot an adult pit? WATCH WHAT YOU SAY! i have 6 pit bulls. 3 are between 6 months and a year. and 3 are a little older. My 6 yr old pit came to me 4 years ago after he was brutally ripped to shreds from being a bait dog in a fighting ring in Montana. After 2 and a half years Gunnar is completely rehabilitated and enjoys going to the dog park daily with no issues! please watch what you say and let us all remember that the ones that show agression do it because HUMANS have repeatedly washed that into their brains!

    you i own a pitbull and i see nothing wrong in these phenomonal animals, but what i do see wrong is the idiots who bred them and the idiots who fight them...these dogs have been known to protect its house and family members to its fullest and are the most loyal dogs you can come across....stop the abuse and fighting of thi breed, its bad enought all states want to outlaw them....
