Maryland legislature adjourns without repealing pit bull ruling


From ANIMAL PEOPLE,  April 2013

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland–– The 2013 Maryland state legislature adjourned on April 8, 2013 without passing a bill meant to “abrogate” an April 2012 state Court of Appeals ruling that “When an attack involves pit bulls, it is no longer necessary to prove that the particular pit bull or pit bulls are dangerous,” for a victim to claim damages from whoever possesses the dog or dogs.

The Maryland House of Delegates on February 21, 2013 unanimously approved a bill by Luis R.S. Simmons of Montgomery County which would in effect have restored to all dogs the common law “one free bite” standard that prevailed before the appellate ruling in Tracey v. Solesky. The ruling originated from an unprovoked pit bull attack on two boys in April 2007. The pit bull keeper was indigent, but the landlord was held responsible for severe injuries to one of the boys, Dominic Solesky, because the house she had rented to the pit bull keeper lacked a fence capable of keeping the pit bull confined.

The Simmons bill was endorsed by the Best Friends Animal Society, Humane Society of the U.S., American SPCA, and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, as well as by lobbyists representing landlords and the insurance industry, and was expected to clear the Maryland Senate until it was amended on March 7, 2013 by the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee. The amendment, proposed by state senator Robert A. Zirkin and approved 7-4, would have applied to all dogs the strict liability standard that the court established for pit bulls.

Three Maryland residents were severely injured by pit bulls between the House of Delgates’ passage of the Simmons bill and the end of the legislative session––an Edgemere woman who was mauled by at least one of her own two pit bulls on February 22; a two-year-old Dundalk girl who suffered head and facial injuries on March 10 when attacked by a pit bull reportedly belonging to a family friend; and a five-year-old White Plains girl who was left in critical condition on April 3 by a pit bull, a Cane Corso, and a Presa Canario kept by her mother’s boyfriend. Both Cane Corsos and Presa Canarios are pit bull variants.

That article doesn't mention the bizarre last minute attempt to change the law to apply only if the victim was 12 or under. I'm not sure where they were going with this as it's pretty clear that Nanny loves to chomp on little children.

snarky said...


sure, a pit that attacks children automatically deemed dangerous but not one that attacks anyone else . good pitter logic there.

My thoughts exactly.
I get pretty tired of age being used as an exalted status.

A victim is a victim no matter what age.

debbie bell to pit dingbat: you will be amazed at how dificult it is to stop her ( sweet pittie) and if shes alive after you free her victim, she would love to go back to snuggling with you - after you wash off the blood .

i think debbie knows her stuff .

tropical storms said...

I think the majority of nutters know the reality of their dogs and admire the hell out it. Some believe it may be true of most but not theirs because they've loved away the aggression (kind of like praying away the gay). With the rare exception of genetically cold dogs a bulldog is a bulldog and at some point will do what they are genetically preprogramed to do-attack and kill other living things. Species, age, gender, etcetera have no magical protection. So glad to see them fail in their efforts.

snarky said...

tropical storms

oh yeah , they admire it , and some will actually let that slip but usually its all denial and convovulation , just like big kids caught bullying at recess.

orangedog said...

They call it being protective and loyal instead of being aggressive. Pits are so loyal they eat their own owners. No other dog is SO loyal.
I'll stick with my breed which will protect me without the added "bonus" of eating me in the process.

snarky said...


yeah ,ive wondered about the scared dingbat element of women getting a shitbull for protection and then having it maul or kill them . ive heard them say their dog is harmless but would die for them. maybe its really the reverse , their dog is not harmless and the dingbat might have to die instead .

april 29 said...

Snarky,

Better the dingbat than the neighbor.

snarky said...


yeah , i know , i was just referring to the situation of stupid scared people needlessly putting everyone at risk with dogs they cant handle .

snarky said...

ive been reading pitterine comment re the stockton murder.

apparently i should be more concerned about the danger posed by horses and cows even , lol ,oh yeah .

the same ones saying not to judge the shitbull breed are saying the woman brought it on herself by climbing the fence .

maybe she loved shitbulls but they dont love her , i think that could explain her "accident"

Your Quiet Neighbor said...

Sooner or later, those pitterine comments will come back to haunt those who made them. Because karma's a bee-atch.

snarky said...


i maybe a hater but at least i wont be making the mistake of thinking a shitbull is anything but a bizarre leftover from a byegone era when bear-baiting and dog-fighting were legal and acceptable. i see people acting like these are just normal dogs , placing themselves and their pets at risk . this is how kids and pets get accidentally chewed up , by peops thinking and acting like all is well when it isnt . dont drink in the NUTTER COOL AID ...its poison

JFC, I just spend half an hour trying to figure out how to UNFRIEND 1/3 of my facebook friends (I now have 2) because the batshitcrazywoman started spewing Pity pics and pity stories about how UNLOVED they are.

I hate facebook. I hate pitters.

I'm a HATER and I'm not gonna stop!!

I just had to comment on this:

That's so true and LMFAO!!!

LOL! not sure how i missed that the first time.

snarky said...

another shitbull attack in nevada that could have been a fatality if the victim had not been armed .

yes, guns kill lots of people , but how great that responsible people can defend themselves against assault dogs and sometimes their violent owners .

DubV said...

I was just over at SRV, and read this quote from the HSUS.

"This misguided ruling is contrary to all available scientific evidence about dogs, which tells us that breed is not predictive of behavior."

I can't post a comment to SRV, so I thought I'd ask here.

Are there actual scientific studies that show that breed is not predictive of behavior? It just seems wrong and preposterous on its face and irresponsible. A big reason for dogs being given up is that the owner did not research the breed first. This used to be preached by the HSUS.

If anyone has a few citations that the HSUS might be using, I'd love to see them. The HSUS position paper at SRV does not actual give any references, but just asserts what all scientific evidence supposedly indicates.

I think the Russian fox farm experiment is kryptonite for these idiots.

tropical storms said...

They're talking about day to day non breed related behavior. What they are in denial about is the very much breed specific behaviors of purpose bred dogs. There are people still with HSUS, field service, animal fighting specialists who are very well aware of this, know they don't make safe or reliable pets and advocate euthanasia for those confiscated. Unfortunately when HSUS grew from a lean tight organization with highly motivated employees things became far too political within the organization itself. The thing about predictions of day to day behavior is that no matter how dangerous any domestic animal, including humans, are from time to time most of the time they are not engaged in violent behavior. This should never be used to consider them safe. The one to ten percent of the time in which the are violent is enough to determine their level of safety. Humans routinely are incarcerated or executed on these same percentages.

DubV said...

Is there a go-to-list for nutters with actual citations to published research? I just see references to the ATTS test and the online survey that was published.

Sputnik2009 said...

DubV, science is more than published, peer-censored, oops I mean reviewed, studies. There's Darwin's original insights about natural selection, later supplemented by insights about artificial selection. There's all the work of behavioral biologists, which the Coppingers clarified brilliantly re dogs in their 2001 book, that show and tell how behavior ends up determined by both genotype and phenotype. There's Pereman's study of impulsive aggressive dogs and what's going on in their brains -- all of them, regardless of breed. Then Van den Berg's dissertation that showed AI is strongly heritable. She looked only at Golden Retrievers, since that club was willing to fund the research. (Unlike the pitty crew, the GR people think impulsive aggression is a huge problem.)

It's not science to say 'duh, we haven't done specific peer-censored studies that prove natural and artificial selection applies to pit bulls too'. Not science to say 'duh, we haven't done peer-censored studies to prove that the brain anomalies that cause impulsive in all mammals also holds true for the pit bull'. Nor to say 'duh, behavioral conformation works as it does in all species, but we haven't specifically looked whether that applies to pit bulls yet'. And ditto 'duh, it's heritable in Golden Retrievers and any other breed that shows up with the problem, but not in pit bulls'.

You're too smart to let Karen Delise and her ilk define for you what science is. If they want to deny all the aforementioned hypotheses based on how the natural world works, it's up to them to prove it -- not you.

We don't get to vote on the laws of physics and biology.

Sputnik2009 said...

* shows and tells

dawn james said...

dubv, i am not aware of any scientific research other than the joke james serpell played on the american public with his laughable self report questionnaire that the nutters hold up as the holy grail. i googled Are there actual scientific studies that show that breed of dog is not predictive of behavior?".

the top hit is a pit bull propaganda link heavy on karen delise . the page criticizes Merritt Clifton, the CDC, the ohio study by barnes and boat that shows the correlation between breed and criminal behavior, the impossibility of identifying pit bulls, blah blah blah....

i like Dr Richard Sattin's approach to this mess:
Nobody knows the dog population of the United States or the exact breakdown by breed. We do not believe that pit bulls represent anywhere near 42% percent of dogs in the United States. Therefore, we believe that the pit bull excess in deaths is real and growing.

and of course that was dated in 1989. pit bulls no longer account for 42% of the fatalities. last year it was around 65%. this year they are all by their lonesome. it would be down right hilarious they finished the year still holding 100% of the fatalities. i think 2014 and would look very different.

dawn james said...

yes, i agree about the russian fox farm studies, those done to create docility and the reverse study that increased aggressiveness. they are kryptonite.

well said sputnik.
"You're too smart to let Karen Delise and her ilk define for you what science is. If they want to deny all the aforementioned hypotheses based on how the natural world works, it's up to them to prove it -- not you."

it's just like religion. it is up to the christians to prove there is a god.

dawn james said...

regarding wayne pacelle, he runs HSUS like any psychopathic corporate CEO. profit is the bottom line. he sold out the HSUS under pressure of dwindling donations and temper tantrums of over emotional nutters. JANE BERKEY now funds all of the fight busts, trains all of HIS people with HER agenda. the HSUS glossy rag is now consistently heavy on the mutant gripper.
wayne pacelle doesn't care about dogs, cats, horses and livestock as much as he cares about being a successful CEO.

dawn james said...

i am always updating the experts, this is the most recent:

"A dog's breed tells us a lot about that dog's genetic heritage and makeup. Genetics is a strong determinant of personality. In the absence of any other information, we can make a reasonable prediction about how the dog will behave based upon its breed." p84

"When we crossbreed, we lose some of that predictability, since which genes will be passed on by each parent and how they will combine is a matter of chance. Fortunately, there is some data to suggest that we can still make predispositions without knowing much about its parentage. John Paul Scott and John L Fuller carried out a series of selective breeding experiments at the Jackson Laboratories in Bar Harbor, Maine. by happy chance, their results revealed a simple rule that seems to work. their general conclusion was that a mixed breed dog is most likely to act like the breed that it most looks like." p 77

tropical storms said...

Dawn, that's entirely and regretfully true. Back in the day it was one hell of an organization, especially field services. The only one left from those days is Eric Sakach, who handles animal law enforcement for WCRO. Check out what he's had to say on this issue.

orangedog said...

Is Jane Berkey a dog fighter because I can't think of a reason anyone would waste their millions pimping pit bulls.

dawn james said...

i got side tracked. more on the corporate nature of HSUS.

During his tenure as HSUS president and CEO, Pacelle has spurred major growth for the organization, which is now the nation's largest animal protection organization with 11 million members and constituents, annual revenue of $160 million, and assets of more than $200 million. The organization is the 155th largest charity in the United States. The growth has partly been achieved through successful mergers with other animal protection organizations. In 2004, Wayne Pacelle and Michael Markarian (president of The Fund for Animals and now chief program and policy officer of The HSUS) helped engineer the corporate combination of The HSUS and The Fund for Animals, the national organization founded by Cleveland Amory. In 2006, Pacelle was the architect of a combination with the Doris Day Animal League, which was founded nearly 20 years ago by iconic actress Doris Day, and is one of the major American animal protection organizations. He created the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, after the formerly named Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights was brought into the HSUS family.

Jake said...

@Dawn - "it's just like religion. it is up to the christians to prove there is a god."

I have tremendous for your integrity and I respect your views. I agree with you on so many issues, but here I'll respectfully disagree.

As I understand it, Christians are certainly encouraged to let their light shine, so to speak, but a Christian can't force an atheist to believe, any more than Christ himself could force Herod to believe -

One might compare such an effort to trying to force a blind man to appreciate the subtle hues of an Arizona sunset.

DubV said...

I think my comment gave Sputnik the wrong impression. I wasn't buying any nutter crap, but thought the nutters might have a few studies in their back pocket that I don't know about. Studies that were likely improperly designed or interpreted. The claims by the HSUS made me think they might have a little nutter bibliography circulating.

If someone had a list, I would love to go over the methodology and results so that I would have something to say about a specific study they might bring up. It's great to set a nutter on their back foot when they throw out a name to sound like an uber nutter, and you know more about the study than they do. Actually, most nutters don't notice that sort of thing though.

Jake said...

@Dubv - pit freaks in general are not into the whole depth thing, but occasionally there are some things said that at least appear to be meaningful - until you dig a little deeper.

For instance, I recently saw some sort of official nutter in a debate throw out the fact that "the first face transplant victim" or something along those lines required the surgery because of her labrador retriever. The impression that she was trying to convey, of course, is that labs are dangerous, unlike the harmless pitties.

That just did not add up for me, and sure enough, a little digging revealed that the nutter withheld some important facts. It was not a mauling in the ordinary sense. The woman had been comatose, totally unresponsive, and by all appearances she was dead. Her lab was nibbling at her face. She did not respond, and eventually parts of her face were nibbled away. Naturally, if she'd woken up and said hey, that hurts, stop it! The lab would have retreated, tail between his legs. So this was not a mauling, but more of a freak accident.

On the other hand, when a pit bull decides to attack its master, it doesn't matter if the person objects or not. Darla Napora not only had her face, neck and chest horribly torn up, she had numerous defensive wounds on her arms and hands.

But of course, the nutter would have never explained any of this - much better to just drop an out of context fragment of information and knowingly give a false impression.

A very Machiavellian - not to mention sociopathic - thing to do!

dawn james said...

"The claims by the HSUS made me think they might have a little nutter bibliography circulating."

they THINK they do. it's called karen delise and the NCRC.

dawn james said...

oops, my politics are showing again.

i was just referring the lack of scientific evidence to support the claims made by christians that god exists, not the art of persuasion.

Rumpelstiltskin said...

Pit bulls give normal dogs a bad rap.

Jake said...

@Dawn -

"i was just referring the lack of scientific evidence to support the claims made by christians that god exists, not the art of persuasion."

Heh - perhaps we'll chat about such matters someday, if the opportunity ever arises.

DubV said...

Jake,

Someone should correct if I'm wrong, but I believe that the lab that nibbled off the face of the comatose person was a lab puppy. I also remember that the owner had attempted a drug overdose and that is why they were out like that. Nutters....at least they are somewhat predictable in their arguments even they and their dogs are unreliable in all other senses.

snarky said...


the lab was probably as nutty as the woman but that doesnt prove anything about pitbulls or other breeds. another one off like the baby killer pomeranian. on the other hand, shitbulls are killing like clockwork .

orangedog said...

I always wonder how a pit bull meme is disseminated to the minions - and so quickly. Take the 40lb "Pomeranian" that once killed a baby. I see that one instance mentioned at least once in any comment section after a pit has killed someone. I believe that the photo is floating around of this enormous "Pomeranian" that, not surprisingly, has more pit bull characteristics than that of the toy breed it's claimed to be. So a quick Google would show that it is not a Pomeranian, but the myth keeps on trucking along just like Ol' Nanny with 3 bullets in his skull.

DubV said...

You could trace it somewhat. Come up with a preposterous pit bull apologetic. Pitch it at a few spots. Then check back via searches etc and see where it has spread and how they are linked. Then write something up about your ruse to diffuse it. However, you'd likely do more harm than good by sticking another arrow in the nutter quiver. I'm trying to think of ridiculous excuses for pit bull attacks that haven't already been offered by nutters. It is hard to come up with anything......

I know. There is a new pit bull war hero name Private Stubble. It would be easy to fill in some of the dog's exploits and really go over the top with it (the dog put gas masks on 12 unconscious soldiers attacked by mustard gas before finally securing its own respirator, etc).

dawn james said...

it's really hard to find ground zero on nutter lies, in large part because the lies are older than the common use of the internet, like the nanny dog and man biters were culled. the "75 breeds" myth is about the only one that i could trace back to an individual. that appears to be the creation of CHERIE GRAVES, a nasty little woman and an amstaff breeder in washington state.

one of these days, i will blog that one. i am finally finishing up the herding/farm dog myth that i started last august. should be out in the next day or two. i am easily side tracked sometimes.

Jake said...

@Dawn -

"one of these days, i will blog that one. i am finally finishing up the herding/farm dog myth that i started last august. should be out in the next day or two"

Thank you!

Jake said...

That whole "farm dog" pit bull myth is so idiotic as to beggar understanding. We've all seen what happens when pit bulls get a crack at farm animals, and it's a bloody slaughterhouse. There are breeds created to protect farm animals, and they aren't bully breeds. The bully breeds were created specifically to torture and kill sentient, feeling animals for sport.

True story: I was talking to a pit freak a few months back, and she informed me that pit bulls used to herd sheep in Scotland in the 1400s...

orangedog said...

I heard a pit bull was the first to set foot on the moon.

What?

;)

I don't know how anyone with two brain cells to rub together would believe that bull dogs were used to herd or protect livestock. It's so ridiculous. They show none of the herding behaviors, they have HUGE jaws for crushing other animals, and they aren't anywhere near as bright as say, a Border Collie. A true livestock guardian would destroy a pit bull. And what do they think the "pit" in the pit bull means?! LOL nutters are so stupid.

orangedog said...

Oh and the thin pit bull coat isn't sturdy enough to withstand the harsh conditions that herding breeds are out in. Dumb dumb dumb!
It appears to be easy to clean blood off of though.

dawn james said...

jake, it's like the classic fish story. this is hysterical because like the "pit bulls" that Thomas Jefferson supposedly owned in the late 1700's, "pit bulls" didn't exist in the 1400's. the nutter freak would likely argue ambulls ≠ pit bulls.

i think my all time favorite fish story is "pit bulls were originally bred to be nanny dogs. it was only after they realized how strong they were, that they started to fight them."

tropical storms said...

This is just painfully laughable. They were bred to attack livestock, not herd or protect. Jebus don't these dim wits even read their breeds history?

orangedog said...

Pit and bull
Bull baiting in a pit = mauling livestock

I mean the name doesn't get any clearer than that. These people are morons.

april 29 said...

No TS,

These dim wits do NOT read the history of the breed and become hostile when you bring it up. They think their maulers walk on water.

I suggested to one of them that they might read the writings of actual dog fighters to get a feel for the history of the breed as told by those who created it as we know it now.

Response? "Well that is a dog fighter, that would be a biased source."

Morons.

DubV said...

I had a nutter telling me recently that in their neck of the woods it was common for cattle ranchers to breed pit bull into herding breeds to improve them. Yeah, right. You have a well bred border collie and it only makes sense to mix it with shit bull.

Packhorse said...

I never heard the rest of the story regarding the lab puppy who tore up the woman's face. This certainly makes more sense in this context.

We likely have all heard of starving dogs who consumed parts of their dead owners' remains if the bodies aren't discovered for awhile. Dogs are scavengers after all. The unresponsive woman probably appeared dead for all intents and purposes. She certainly acted dead.

dawn james said...

"I had a nutter telling me recently that in their neck of the woods it was common for cattle ranchers to breed pit bull into herding breeds to improve them. "

DubV, there might be a kernal of truth in that, if there neck of the woods is down under and if they regard the english bull terrier as a "pit bull". the english bull terrier was supposedly added to the collie/kelpie/dingo mix to create the australian cattle dog.

dawn james said...

"Response? "Well that is a dog fighter, that would be a biased source.""


i've been hit with that too. you're right. MORONS.

DubV said...

Thanks Dawn, I'll keep that in my back pocket in case I see it again.

april 29 said...

Here is a new myth, stunning, where does this stuff come from?

From a young, female, Texas pitter
"Pit bulls were bred for their aggressive "pit fighting" yes....in the 1800s people!! If you know anything about the breed, you are I'm sure well aware that their violent aggression has since been need out of them. That is where yes IGNORANT people, who have probably never owned a pit bull put their two sense in about the breed and discriminate. What you probably didn't know, is that one of your ancestors who fought in the early civil/world wars had pit bulls for each soldier, and when their master was wounded in the field, their PITBULL would run into the battlefield and drag them to safety. Don't get me started...just sayin."

like vintage says, you can't make this stuff up.....

DubV said...

Wow april 29, that nutter I believe achieved the coveted uber nutter status with that one. You can't be sure if they are being sarcastic or really believe this stuff. Pit nutters are offended when others have an internal BS meter that they lack.

tropical storms said...

People have asked for years why I don't write a book on dogfighting. I think I'd rather collect the greatest bulldog moronic statements of all time. This would not only be number one on the list, it's jacket material. Holy shit, do you guys get this all the time? I really thought dogfighters would win the too stupid to breathe prize.

dawn james said...

TS, the nutters are far more stupid and dangerous than the dog fighters. the backwoods rednecks with 8th grade educations are smarter than the average pit nutter.

it doesn't even register on these idiots' radar that they offer up conflicting versions.

either they were originally bred for fighting or they were originally bred for nanny dogs. they can't be both.

they claim we can't identify a pit bull but the bleeding heart rescue angel nutters CAN identify a HEADLESS corpse as a 6 month old dog as a pit bull.

they don't understand the concept of mutually exclusive. and they are completely clueless as to how stupid they look to everyone every time they open their mouths.

Miss Margo said...

Great thread.

"You could trace it somewhat. Come up with a preposterous pit bull apologetic. Pitch it at a few spots. Then check back via searches etc and see where it has spread and how they are linked. Then write something up about your ruse to diffuse it."

I almost attempted this a year ago as a sort of experiment and prank...

Remember what happened to Jezebel, in the Bible? 2:kings? If you're unfamiliar, she was an allegedly immoral heathen queen who was thrown out of a window to her death. Dogs ate her.

"And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and there shall be none to bury her."

I was going to go on a nutter forum and claim that the evidence has proven that the dogs were PIT BULLS. Therefore, pit bulls were a breed from antiquity and also BIBLICAL dogs. The only dogs mentioned in the Bible!

As Dawn has observed many a time, pit nutters are the most gullible people on earth. I bet a few of them would parrot my absurd story.

april 29 said...

Personally, I think the Texas pitter's comment is worthy of consideration for the Karen Delise Prize for Fiction.

dawn james said...

i learned a new word yesterday from one of my facebook friends. it seems to fit right in here.

i might have to blog it as word of the day.

MISOLOGY : a hatred of argument, reasoning, or enlightenment

dawn james said...

pit bulls in the bible!! hahaha.

i've been threatening to photoshop a pit bull into the famous painting of george washington crossing the delaware and the famous "the british are coming, the british are coming" painting, the first thanksgiving, and that famous photo of the first man on the moon and a few others for quite a while. a couple of years ago, some nutter showed up on the truth blog crediting the pit bull for basically landing on plymouth rock and creating america. one of these days....

creating a karen delise prize for fiction is brilliant.

orangedog said...

Pit bulls in the Civil War... that takes the cake. I mean, it just doesn't get any dumber than that. I wonder if Nutter knows that there are things called history books. There was even photography back then too! Can't recall seeing any photos of Pittie (alive or dead), and there should be some evidence since, you know there was like one for every soldier. BAHAHAHA!
I'm quite the Civil War buff and I find this hysterical. Maybe she confused all the horses for pits. Maybe she thinks Traveller was a grey pit bull that Robert E. Lee rode around on. Good god, pick up a book dumb ass Nutter.

orangedog said...

Dawn, don't forget The Creation of Adam. Just photoshop in two pit bulls touching.

Miss Margo said...

When I taught a class about the Civil War, I used tons of Mathew Brady photographs. Corpses as common as dandelions on the ground, and nary a pit bull in sight. There were dead horses, however.

And the idea that either army could or would afford to feed a fuckin army of pit bulls is just idiotic.

Speaking of idiotic, why am I even bothering to refute such an idiotic story...?

Oh, one last thing about Jezebel and Biblical pit bulls: I also bet that some nutters would be so dumb that they did not grasp the IRONY of my preposterous concocted story. A woman eaten by pit bulls! lol

april 29 said...

In case anyone thought I made up the Civil War story, here is a link to the article. The comments are stunning and the Civil War story is included.
http://www.khou.com/news/neighborhood-news/Man-bitten-while-protecting-dog-in-pit-bull-attack-203181861.html

Vintage says it all, "you can't make this stuff up."

orangedog said...

Oh, but Miss Margo, Matthew Brady was the start of the media misinformation campaign about pibble. He probably Photoshopped them out because "media bias".
OK, I should stop. This fairy tale is so stupid that rebutting it makes me worry that their stupid will rub off - and I never doubted for a second that it was made up. ;)

orangedog said...

Oh wow, the comments on that link. Nanny dog appears right away. Also the one about pits are used for fighting because they are so smart and strong. I bet this person doesn't have a clue that dogmen bred them to be strong. They sure aren't smart dogs, just like their owners who will "fight tooth and nail" because the plight of godlike pittie is "near and dear" to dingbats.

Meals on Wheels said...

There is a modern day Jezebel, willing to be a pimp to raise funds to rehabilite the image of the poor maligned pit bull.

Alas, the bordello plans were shut down by a fire.

Fire in Tehachapi.

Fire in New Mexico.

I think the Lord Jehovah has spoken to the modern day Jezebel, but she isn't listening.

vintage said...

There was a Confederate Colonel named Wirz who was hung for war crimes. He had several incidents of allowing bulldogs to maul union prisoners.

Then you have the Serbia para military rape-genocide squad who called themselves "The Pit Bulls"

Not sure why they didn't call themselves "The Corgis"...

orangedog said...

You never hear any group called The Chihuahuas either. And we all know rat dogs are way more vicious than pits so it's a real head scratcher.

Cane Corsos and Presa Canarios are not varients of pitbulls, they are there own breed of dog. Whoever wrote this is ignorant when it comes to dog breeds and is highly missendformed. They should do their research befor writing an artical.
