Blatantly, like you want it to sound. Why because he's Indian? NO, my comment means ban ignorantRead More people like Hakim. Of COURSE someone equally ignorant would take that out of context.

@John - Not arguing that the media reports more frequently on PB cases - which, because PB's have aRead More larger bite size usually are more devastating than other dogs. However, the blogger and others are acting like this is the only dog that ever bites, which is far from the truth. And at least one other individual commenting on this situation is using data spanning 30 years.
Harriet Laurin April 24, 2014 at 06:59 am
#mplo - that information has nothing to do with bite statistics; the article isn't really properlyRead More named. Only fatalities were included in the underlying AVMA source data. Bite stats were not tracked. To get a true sense of the "most aggressive" dogs, one would have to have tracked the individual elements of breed population counts, bite counts, fatality counts and then determine % of each incident type for each breed/breed mix to truly assess which the percentage of risk associated to each breed. And type-of-owner factors and how they treat the dogs (which affects the temperament of the dog) is another consideration beyond that. Can PB's be dangerous? Absolutely - and so can any other dog. I was babysitting once and the "sweet kids" sicced their Airedale on me - my first experience with an aggressive dog. I hid in a bathroom and the dog nearly took the door apart before the parents got home. That doesn't mean Airedales should be banned - just that parents need to teach their kids proper responsibility about the dog. Regardless of breed.

#Harriet. I have followed media bias for years. And I am not saying it doesn't happen with the pitRead More bulls. However, all the serious attacks by all breeds get reported. Maybe only at the local level, but they are there. Did you look at the findings in that 30 year study? It is pretty damning.

What I think is really scary and a public health threat is the violence PEOPLE do to pit bulls. WeRead More kill millions of them every year. They are tortured in fighting rings, look at what Vick did. Humans are a very dangerous breed. THere should be laws or something to protect the public--and animals--- from people.

#Kim, all the more reason for restrictions, such as spaying and neutering. Less animals to be hurtRead More in fighting pits or put in the pound, only to be put down.

Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?
tribble April 23, 2014 at 06:53 am
Yeah, Miley Cyrus' pit bull killed her little doggie last fall. The other dog that just died...it'sRead More being covered up how it died. That's why all the articles that mention coyote say "allegedly".

Boss Hogg and Anthony. Thank you both. Seeing where it's coming from I'll take that as a compliment.

Wrong blog Igor, but I do agree with your opinions on this particular blog.

For the record, Magic Johnson contracted HIV (not AIDS) through sex with a reported 10,000 differentRead More women. Do you actually believe you can only contract HIV though gay sex??? Christie, your comments are so ridiculously ignorant, that I’m almost willing to believe that you are putting us all on. I almost believe that there’s some poster who created this character of an extremely ignorant bible-thumping woman, and he is right now having a great laugh at how he’s put one over on us all. If that’s the case, then my hat’s off to you!
christie nicolle April 23, 2014 at 11:48 am
wait Hookerman - out of those 10,000 chicks, 1 of them slept with a homosexual -- frankly I heard heRead More was on the 'low down' but either way, his promiscuity got him. So my point is Salient! The bible warns that the wages of sin is death -- what more do you want? HAPPY EASTER!
ChristieD April 23, 2014 at 06:50 pm
Hookerman; thank you very much for differentiating me from ChristieN. I very much appreciate that.Read More Let me remind you, however, ChristieN's status as a "Christian" has endowed her knowledge on every possible situation where something is unknown. God must speak to her in some special way in those voices that she hears in her head (.....ChristieN; this is god, and I want you to spread the gospel of good news that Magic Johnson had gay sex and is going to hell........and by the way, judgment is a sin; WAIT, cut that one out....erase erase erase)

Fake Boss Hogg. Kinda funny coming from a guy that picked "Almost Brilliant" as a handleRead More a week ago...

This guy is psycho I see all negative posts on this breed. Us all who are for the breed let's postRead More positive things. This guy has no life obviously to sit and pick apart a breed. My dad was a meter reader in the day he was attacked and bitten 9 times on different occasions. 2 of them were German sheps, rest were ankle biters. ALL dogs bite. My parents were ignorant with pit bulls I remember my neighbors bf had them in my yard when I was a kid and my moms screaming they are vicious get inside. (They were sweet dogs) that goes with them being uneducated about the breed. They witnessed my neighbors pit mauling the neighbors small dog (their dog was nice until the crack heads put him in a cage 24/7) they are like till recently they are dangerous blah blah blah and know what I educated them I now rescued a pit lab who is a big baby and whom my parents adore. I cross post animals all over and many are pit bulls. They say 1 of 600 finds homes. It's sad cause in my dad's years of meter reading not one pit bull attacked him. 2 days in a row I saw 2 pits running in and out of traffic on a main road by my house. Almost hit them. I got out of my car called them over (had no fear as if it were a smaller dog or a shep) they came to me I grabbed their collars and what did they do? They licked me. I'm in school to be an nj Animal control officer and an associates in vet tech and I can bet you in my life I will support the pit breed in some successful way. I will never hate the breed or judge them. I've got bitten by a smaller dog breed do I judge them? No. So educate before you discriminate

Thanks again Gina!! I could not have asked for more concise, clear cut corroboration for myRead More premise, than that which you have provided. Please keep it up as I pass these on to friends and we get a good laugh at the irony of it all.
