BAD: Dog attack
This is a discussion on BAD: Dog attack within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I'll go a step further. Put down any stray dog without tags that is people aggressive. That also goes for Rotts, GSD, Rotts, Malinois, Douge ...

I'll go a step further. Put down any stray dog without tags that is people aggressive. That also goes for Rotts, GSD, Rotts, Malinois, Douge de Bordeaux and Presa Canirio.
I know laws vary by state but in ohio if you house a pit without insurance and the other requirements you lose your dog and can go to jail. Now if we can just get animal control to do something and pick up the dogs we will make some progress. We need to enforce the laws we have before we enact new ones.
I have no problem with putting owners in jail. For every good pit owner ther are 20 bad ones. See my above posts about "ghetto" pits. A lot of those owners already have warrants and use the dogs to watch the door. Sweep the drug dogs up and put them down.
If your dog attacks someone while off your property then you are liable. On your own property the issue becomes more complicated. The trespassers motive becomes questioned. If it attacks the owner then it isn't my problem.
The other issue is insurance companies need to be willing to write the policy that the law requires.

or the tooth fairy...and you're gonna be one of 'em pretty soon."

If I had a dog that was aggressive and attempted to bite or attack someone without any 'serious' provocation..... they would never have to worry about it, as I would shoot the dog myself in an instance.
There is a difference between a bite, and a full fledged attack, and being dumb enough to stick our hand in the middle of a dog fight.

This is a good example of someone who gets their education about Pit bulls from the media.

Go to a local shelter that has pit bulls up for adoption and spend some time with a pit bull and you will see they are just dogs. Not the monsters the media wants you to believe they are.
Remember, the same people who put out the "endless number of videos and cable network specials" are the same people who put out the anti gun videos and specials.
Educate yourself by doing your homework and then form an opinion based on what YOU discover and not the spin doctors of the media who only want to tell stories to put fear in the uneducated who are too lazy to find out the truth on their own.

Get a grip
Get a grip folks. If you saw in print " And all one needs to do is view the endless number of videos and cable network specials profiling these dangerous assault weapons" you all would have your undies in a bunch. Now insert "a big scary dog" and you run to "there ought to be a law" or emotion based opinion and all the other BS the anti gunners are flying in our face. Shame on you. If you are willing to jump to the logic that breed specific laws (inluding insurance requirements and the like) then do not be surprised when they come to tell you as an owner of a big scary caliber handgun you must carry <insert here>. Sheesh. You pulled my chain!

I was bite by a, large dog not pit bull type, on my left wrist. My wrist watch saved me from a very bad injury. It all happened so quick that had I been armed I do not think I could have drawn and fired because my fight reaction was to use my right fist and thumb to poke into the dogs eyes. When the dog let go he ran away, and thankfully I was not severally hurt.
