Pittbulls

According to Forbes:

Pit bulls make up 6.5% of the dog population in the USA. However, they are responsible for 66% of the human fatalities.

That’s not all, Pittbulls are responsible for 95% of dog fatalities when caused by dog...

Rottweiler is the 2nd most lethal dog breed to humans. They are responsible for 1/6th of human fatalities at half the population compared to pittbulls. That makes pittbulls ~3x more deadly than Rotts.

It’s my opinion, but if you take on the risk of owning a breed of dog this dangerous, and that dog takes a life of another human, you should be on trial for taking the life of that human as if you did it yourself.

Their owners are largely complete shitheads so I'm not entirely how much of it is the dogs fault and how much is the owners.

The worst are apartment dwellers that own such large pets.

Maybe not.

DALLAS (AP) -- Police say a Dallas-area woman was mauled to death by her two pit bull terriers as she tried to feed them at a veterinary clinic where the dogs were in quarantine for a prior attack.

Irving police say 33-year-old Johanna Villafane of Irving was pronounced dead Saturday at a Dallas hospital.

A police statement says Villafane was at the clinic Saturday morning to feed the dogs and was in an exercise area when they attacked her.

The aggressive dogs prevented medical personnel from quickly reaching Villafane. A police officer shot and killed both animals and the woman was taken to a hospital where she died.

The statement didn’t describe the initial biting incident that led to the pit bulls being quarantined.

This is the one I read about this afternoon and was going to post. The owners are just obtuse about their tendency to be violent no matter how many of these stores we read. Never hear of a cocker spaniel or collie doing something like this. In most cases they are an extension of the owner's anti-social personality, but occasionally decent people get them too.

I totally agree Pit Bulls are dangerous weapons, you should be treated the same as if your Gun got in the hands of a kid and zhe killed someone.

Miami once banned them when they White farm Land and tow yard owners mostly had them, to protect their property from Lawless thugs.
But they reversed that and allowed them again when Lawless thugs wanted them for their mascots.

Liberals would suck their dick to please them.

Anyone who cares about safety packs M134 which would turn a pittbull to red mud.

Doesn’t matter. Pitbull ownership “but mine is so sweet and wouldn’t hurt a fly” doesn’t mean anything when we have the data that tells the story.

In CA it’s odd that I can’t carry a gun, but someone can have a pit bull outside.

Most owners here are responsible, but the few shitheads who can’t even control their dog from running off at strangers and cats is insane.

Just about every one I know. In fact, I only know one pro-gun guy that has a Pit.

Most have bird dogs, German Shepherds or Labs.

Guns and pittbuls? What an inanimate object has to do with a living thing capable of acting on it's own volition?

Substitute "pitbulls" for "AR-15s" in the article about that TX woman attacked by her own pets @ the vet office and it instantly turns into nonsense.

Right.
How many people are killed accidentally by their own guns? Or whose kids are killed playing with the gun?

By simply entering the room like that TX woman? Exactly zero.

We have this neighbor, woman. She’s small, weak, has pit bull she can’t hold. Fucking stupid and dangerous. It pulls her faster than she can run, and she always complains about dog not listening to her.

I’m not sexist, but I think only men should own pit bulls.

Take a look at the selection of currently adoptable dogs at the SF pound:

https://www.sfanimalcare.org/adoptable-animals/dogs/

Apart from a few chihuahuas (lol SF), they're nearly all pit bull or part pit bull. The conclusion I'd draw is that they're either being over-bred or their owners tend to be under-responsible, or both.

I've heard often the claim that owners determine the dog's personality.

So, could a guy succeed in turning his cocker spaniel into an attack dog?

It's bullshit; pit bulls often deep down want to attack because they were bred to be this way.

Sometimes a mellow pit bull is fine with people; just wait until he goes to the beach to run around and quickly attacks the nearest dog it can.

I say let the breed disappear.

Britain effectively banned Pit Bulls in 1991: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dangerous_Dogs_Act_1991

America should do the same.
