Pit bull backyard breeding Illinois-style: Making Man Eaters in Ledyland
Connie and Scott Ijams were delivering phonebooks to homes in Bloomington IL last October when a pit bull pushed through a screen door and severely mauled Connie Ijams and bit Scott when he tried to save her.
The pit bull, Bo, tore up both Connie's arms requiring many hours of surgery, a 10 day hospital stay, $73,000 and four months later she still has no feeling in her arms except for annoying itching that can't be scratched. Connie and Scott are having a benefit to help pay for her $73,000 and climbing hospital bills.
Here is a video of the idiot owner, SHANIE DOSS, crying about how horrible it was that people were yelling at her while her pit bull engaged in a protracted mauling of a woman. Despite SHANIE DOSS' whining and crying, she is being charged with a class 4 felony and various ordinance violations.
Would it surprise anyone to know that SHANIE DOSS is a backyard breeder, previously allowed her pit bull to escape, get hit by a car and break both its legs, and has a previous felony conviction?
You can find all the details at this link. You will have to enter the names SHANIE DOSS and MICHAEL COSTIN.
Shakespearean festivals in North America. And they have at least one church that bills itself as progressive, open and affirming.
Farmers Insurance announced it will no longer be providing coverage for pit bulls and rottweilers in California, many nutters in other states proclaimed they will be switching to State Farm because they haven't banned dangerous breeds yet. Well, look out State Farm, gird your loins, look what's coming to you right outside you corporate headquarters.
And what is with Bloomington and her sister city Normal? They are home rule cities in Illinois, so they can enact breed specific legislation despite the statewide ban on BSL. People have been calling for regulation for years as attacks have become progressively more horrific in Bloomington. Are they waiting for someone to die, because that is looking like an increasingly sure bet. Bloomington should look to Pawtucket, RI for some answers. Pawtucket is very happy with their ban which has been effective and practicable for the less wealthy but similar sized city.
