another child was killed by pit bulls. i don't usually follow fatal attacks closely so i haven't see the comment sections of this story but i am sure there is plenty of parental blame on this one, and that blame appears to justified based on the reports that the 4 yr old was killed after wandering a half mile away from his home. the neighbors claimed this wasn't the first time the victim wandered away from his home. but if you scratch beneath the surface of the nutters' haughty attitude, pseudo dog behavior expert credentials and holier than thou comments, you find a group of people who preach a "do as i say and not as i do" message.
take for example the story of FLAPJACK. aside from the fact that i believe the back story of FLAPJACK to be a complete fabrication on the part of his rescuers, i was appalled to see the following photos on dogforum.net.
now, i am no authority on dog behavior but a tail that is tightly curled underneath the belly is not behavior you want to see in a dog, especially a pit bull and especially in such close quarters with a small child. having recently been accused of claiming to be an "authority on animal behavior", i decided to come armed for this fight, so i did a quick google. and i found plenty of experts to back up my non-expert opinion. here's just one:
As most people know, a tail tightly curled under a dog’s belly is a very fearful dog and can even lead to a bite.

photo caption: He has shown no aggression towards his food, people, or other dogs.
they never do, until they do!
how many maulings have been attributed to the child getting too close to the dog's food?
and on november 29, 2011, the dog nutters received this happy update:
i have lost count how many times the nutters have scolded us for leaving children alone with dogs.
from our canadian nutter neighbors who are every bit as rabid on the subject of pit bulls as their american counterparts, we have TAMMY WILLIAMS of the ADVOCATES OF THE UNDERDOG in ontario. after a mere TWO months as a pit bull owner, ontario decided to ban grippers. what did TAMMY do? "I immediately hit the computer and started learning everything I could about BSL. I talked to anyone and everyone that knew anything about it. I spent months and months in front of my computer just learning." of course with "months and months" of on line education (on BSL, NOT pit bulls!), she still has not a lick of sense but she is SOMEHOW transformed into an expert. here are a few photos from the ontario nutter gallery:
wtf is wrong with these people?
TERRA FLEMING'S nanny dog bit a 3 yr old girl in the face when she went to hug nanny. this was not nanny's first offense. six months prior, nanny PEANUT bit FLEMING'S son. the ACO described PEANUT as "not highly aggressive" but added that "children should not be left alone with dogs". FLEMING was ticketed for misdemeanor child neglect.
here's another link.

and here's something that i find interesting in a creepy sort of way. the nanny dog's fur mommy tried to unload her wiggle butt on facebook, 4 hours before she bit the toddler.
on february 17, 2012, grampajim58 reported the following:
My son is very much on the bandwagon about pitbull dogs are no different then another breed of dogs-(when it comes to dogs that bite)-He even made posters, and rallied the dog lovers to come out and protest against a bill that would ban breed pacific dogs. Well I'm here to say I got the phone call last night that no granpa wants to get, it was my son calling me from his cell phone a little after 10pm. I only knew it was my son because of caller I.D.he was screaming and crying at the same time,and I could hear the sound of loud exhaust screaming out a high RPM sound,that's when I knew something bad has just happened.What I Could make out was my granddaughter was crying at the door because she wanted to go by-by with her Dad (my son) he had to go to the store.That's when it happened, the crying must have made the dog nervous, because it attacked her without warning-The Police, and First Responders, Ambulance, and Animal control showed up.They loader my 2yr old granddaughter on the stretcher, and then to the hospital, and into surgery she went, the Doctors, the Nurses, and the plastic Surgeon-to try to put that little girls face back together again.They shaved part of her head, and where able to save the one eyelid and ran the staples in the hairline.After only 6hrs she was in recovery=Where we are now-------
-------------I am more than sick over this-----------------------
of course, i had to look for this nutter and as luck would have it, i found him. my fingers were crossed for another badrap connection but i saw no specific orgs that he was associated with.
JIMMY SHAW'S pit bulls were NOT chained, were NOT neglected, were NOT abused. they lived inside the home as cherished and well dressed wiggle butts. there are plenty of photos of these much loved family members on myspace and facebook, although the photos with clever nutter captions have been removed, i saved them.
me thinks BUDDY is now a dog rug, but not to worry - his manbiter genes live on...
i also found this link on his facebook page, i suspect one of these raving nutters is our champion for the underdog.
ALL TOGETHER NOW....

disclaimer - i have never claimed to be any kind of authority on dog behavior. i am just a smart ass who likes to read and smash nutter bullshit. i am not making this up!
*the AC reports are out and things don't look good for america's gripping nanny dog.
