i am finally in a mental state where i can write about this attack without fearing my words will incite others to violence. pit bull home invasions leave me feeling like Charles Whitman.
last wednesday (2.16.11), Sam Thomas lived through Jennifer Lynch's psycho pit bull monster horror film, The Compound. her children were out side in the fenced in backyard playing when they ran into the house to tell their mother that 2 black dogs got into their enclosed yard. the dogs were hot on their trail and forced their way into the house before Sam could secure the door. Sam barricaded her kids in a room. their family dog, a 9 month old borzoi was in crate in the hallway. Sam thought that the crate would protect their puppy. of course, it would have if these were simply marauding german shepherds but then again, i don't recall EVER reading about violent home invasions by german shepherds. this crime is exclusive to gripping dog. it didn't take the hideous mutants long to destroy the crate and attack Mika. Mika screamed as the frankenmaulers mutilated him. this horror show was clearly heard by Sam and her children, who were screaming at their mother to let them help Mika. meanwhile, Sam had called for help. her husband arrived and used a hoe and a metal broom to separate the dogs, both the hoe and the broom were destroyed. the police and special forces from the dog unit arrived and it took four men to get these psychotic monsters under control. one of the special forces officers dislocated his shoulder trying to manage them. Mika was rushed to the vet. Mika died the next day, he had 70 wounds.
the hideous mutants are in custody and the hideous nutter is "cooperating" with the investigation. when Richard Thomas spoke to the teen nutter, he got the typical dog aggression is natural and normal response. let's hope that the police don't give the typical response of "sorry mate, dog on dog attacks are not in my job description".
THIS is why i focus this blog on animal aggression and the idiots who think this obscene prey drive is acceptable and manageable.
'He told my husband that the only crime was that his dogs did not like other dogs.' Sam Thomas
of course, the deranged pit nutters in the comment section rise to occasion, or rather sink to the occasion. how about this insensitive remark from the demographic that has perfected "crate & rotate".
