Tails a waggin'. Normal dogs don't drag around carcasses of other dogs of a similar size and appear happy over it. I think if you put a dead dog around other breeds, most would smell it and then get spooked and back away and avoid it.

I remember when I was conflicted about killing a dog, even if it was a pit bull under completely legal, justified, defensive circumstances.

But now?

Best get out of the way. Malice diminishes accuracy.

This is what pits were bred to do. This is the inbred, aberrant behavior in plain view. As DubV says, tails wagging, happily giving into their genetic heritage, biting and biting with joy.

I had a dog once - I am pretty sure he was part greyhound - a lurcher, as I found out later. He was not a hyper dog. He was basically laid back and responsive to training. He naturally walked on a loose leash and heeled easily. When I took him in the woods off lead, he trotted or loped ahead a little bit, and then came back to check in both on his own and in response to command. He was even a little neurotic about "losing" me. Once, after he'd trotted ahead, I left the path to look a something in the woods and when I looked up to see him trotting back and forth on the path anxiously searching for me.

So, I was very surprised when I took him to an enormous, open field, let him off lead, and he just shot off like a bullet. He became completely unresponsive to my voice. I thought he was going to run off, and panicking, I chased after him, sure he was gone forever. But, he just ran to the first tree on the other side of this field that was as wide as a football field is long, and peed. He noticed me again and responded to my call, but as he started running back again, he couldn't help himself, he ran past me, wheeled around, running in huge circles around me. I began running away from him, and that's the only way I could get him to come to me. When I got him on lead again he was panting so hard he was frothing.

It was his genetic heritage kicking in. He was reacting to the stimulus of the wide open space and his behavior was completely uncharacteristic of his typical temperament and training. He'd been in big yards before and he'd never run like that or become deaf to my voice.

No matter how friendly a wigglebutt is, it is a mutant that can do this to a dog or a kid or an adult, for that matter, at any time.

I'm pretty positive that I can't bring myself to watch that. Anyone wanna bet that we'll get some pro-pit folk in here trying to spin this attack/or somehow blame it on the other dog?

All of this recent pit bull debate has given me an idea. Before I finish the problem with pit bulls part 3, I'm going to have a bit of fun with a blog entry about an attack. I think some will chuckle over it, while others will have steam coming out of their ears.

(rubs hands gleefully) hehehe...

Somewhat acceptable ending to video = person in purple cavalier guns it and takes the shit bull out

Off topic for this post, but...

Interesting discussion about insurance for pit bull owners – how to withhold information, or defraud carriers going on in the Facebook group, ‘Pit Bulletin Legal News.’

Renea Roberts instructs, “don't volunteer info, don't lie, but don't have blabbering mouth, they are terriers.” (This might have worked until admitting avoidance of full disclosure was intentional. Ooops!)

Katherine Rush of Murrieta, California reports, “I hate to say it, but I didn't say I had a pit bull. I told them a boxer.” (Easy Peazy, Lemon Squeezy - Outright admittance of fraud. Sweet!)

Good stuff! How could they anticipate an insurance investigator would research a claimant before covering an injury? I’d love to be the investigator going to court with a statement from Facebook, then deny the claim and refer for fraud.

These idiots never fail to entertain!

I did learn that State Farm supposedly doesn’t mind insuring pit bulls. The next time they pitch to me, I’ll be sure to mention I don’t want to pay excess premiums to cover other people’s appetite for risk.

awesome find dude.

i've seen these discussions on the forums before.
btw, i saved out the whole discussion.

i will look into this later. insurance fraud is serious business. i know of someone convicted of it.

State Farm paid me a bunch of money. If they continue to insure pits, they will pay many people bunches of money. Business decisions have consequences.

Where is the sport in mauling a dead dog?

"Best get out of the way. Malice diminishes accuracy." :)

A more acceptable ending - taking out the shit bull AND the nutter with the purple cavalier.

re: insurance fraud, They can't help themselves. Pit nutters are drawn to deviancy like a moth to a flame.
