AC kept that dog and released the other back to REGINO. that mutant escaped again on april 7th and landed back in lock up with his partner. after 6 days of sharing a cell, the two mutants attacked each other while in custody. on the 13th LISA REGINO signed them over to havelock and the craven county ac gave them proper dirt naps. GOOD TIMES!!
see also 04.08.11 roundup for more details of the first attack, photo of the nutter and her previous criminal history.

04.26.11 aloha, oregon a pit bull jumped out a window and attacked a cairn terrier. surprisingly, the pit nutter sprung into action, put a choke hold on the mutant and was bitten for his trouble. but wait for it... "According to the owner of the pit bull, the dog is normally very friendly." file this one under "why pit bulls are different" and "the predictability of pit nutters". also note that the racist bastards at oregonlive labeled the dog a pomeranian. the horror!

K9 Zero
04.25.11 gainesville, florida SCRAPPY lived up to his name just before he died for it. Zero was attacked while in pursuit of a suspect. SCRAPPY launched an attack as the K9 officer and his handler passed his yard. the deputy was unable to release his dog, A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, and shot the ugly mutant. now SCRAPPY'S owners are pissed off. ROBERT BAUTOCHKA said the shooting was “completely irresponsible. Come on. This was a dogfight — you don't shoot first in a dogfight. Why didn't they pepper spray or Taser him?” a dog fight is when you place two mutants in a pit. this was an unprovoked attack and the shit bull should have died for assaulting an officer! the sheriff's office has offered counseling to the grieving nutters. what a a fucking waste of tax payer money!

04.19.11 hutchinson, minnesota a poodle being walked by its owner (on a leash) was attacked by a loose shit bull. the tan mutant ripped the poodle off of its leash and took off with the it. the owner has been sent a dangerous dog letter because of the violence of the attack and the lack of current rabies vaccination.

rip Jackson
04.25.11 forsyth county, north carolina ERICA REAVES' mother was about to take her 7yr old good hearted mutant for a walk. when she opened the condominium door, the mutant ran out into the hall and attacked Jackson. REAVES wasn't home but said that her 19 month old son was near the door when the attack happened. REAVES claims her mutant was simply protecting her son from the 5 lb dog, adding that it is "unfortunate that some dogs don't like each other". yep, it's unfortunate when the dog that doesn't like your is a shit bull. AC is declaring the mutant dangerous. ERICA REAVES will have to have the ugly thing spayed and housed in a 6 sided kennel, that is until she moves it to the country where it can maul in peace. ERICA REAVES refused to name her ugly fucking mutant but i will. mutant's name is LEXIE. and here are her photos. yup, it's an ugly pit bull that appears to be a loved house dog, just not quite enough love i guess.

Find the Pit Bull

After hearing from someone who was frustrated that "grown men with children are still asking, 'but how can you identify a pit bull?'" and wondering if BSL is feasible because pit bulls are shape shifting , I decided to break down the "Find the Pit Bull" test. The fact that the pit bull community has now decided they can identify the headless corpse of a puppy as a pit bull kind of has taken the wind out of my sails, but I persevere anyway.
Click on the title to go to the original. Click on image to make it larger.
Key: 1. Boxer 2. Dogue de Bordeaux 3. Alapaha Blue Bull Dog 4. Great Swiss Mountain Dog 5. Vizsla 6. Rhodesian Ridgeback 7. Dogo Argentino 8. Chocolate Labrador Retriever 9. Bullmastiff 10. Jack Russell Terrier 11. Fila Brasileiro 12. Rottweiler 13. Presa Canario 14. American Bulldog 15. Cane Corso 16. American Pit Bull Terrier 17. Patterdale Terrier 18. Olde English Bulldogge 19. Catahoula 20. Bull Terrier 21. Black Mouth Cur 22. Alano Espanol 23. Boerboel 24. Ca de Bou 25. Thai Ridgeback
The "Find the Pit Bull" test pretends to show us that pit bulls are virtually impossible to distinguish from other breeds. The test is intended to deceive. In short, the creator uses scarce to rare breeds that are related to the pit bull's ancestry, juvenile dogs or dogs that are atypical of the breed and pretends that using one photo is the same as seeing the actual dog. The pit bull they use as an example of a typical pit bull is a puppy, for crying out loud!
The long answer:
To trick the viewer, the creator uses the following techniques:
A. Uses photos that do not show relative size.
B. Uses photos that do not show the whole dog when body type is much different than a bully breed.
C. Uses photos of juvenile dogs that have not developed their breed specific characteristics or size.
D. Uses photos of dog breeds that are rare to non-existant in the United States making it very unlikely that the general public or animal control officers have encountered or ever will encounter these breeds
E. Inclusion of many examples of similar dogs of three breed types that are known to have been used to develop the pit bull - terriers, bulldogs and mastiffs. The last two are also themselves closely related to each other.
F. Uses photos that show an atypical or less common type of a breed.
G. Uses poor photos that don't show distinguishing characteristics of the breed or that create the illusion the breed has pit bull characteristics.
The question is: Can Animal Control Officers distinguish the breeds in the photos if presented with the actual dogs?
BOXER photos:
1. BOXER - A, B, C, E, F The first german registered BOXER was half english white bulldog. However, during the 20th century, breeders have created a decidedly distinct and unique looking dog. The BOXER in the quiz is the less common white color and the dog is a young puppy. In addition, the angle of this photo does not show the characteristic scooped break in the nose bridge.
Conclusion: In real life, an animal control officer would have no problem distinguishing a BOXER from a pit bull.
2. DOGUE DE BORDEAUX - A, B, E This is the french version of the large mastiff dog. Both bulldogs and pit bulls have been bred to mastiffs for size since the 19th century. These french mastiffs have been bred for great size (minimum 110 pounds) and a very distinctive look for most of the 20th century.
Conclusion: Animal control officers would have no problem distinguishing a DOGUE DE BORDEAUX in real life because of their size and differing body and head features.
3. ALAPAHA BLUE BULLDOG - D, E - The ALAPAHA BLUE BULLDOG is a mix of bulldog and pit bull and is described as "a well-developed, exaggerated bulldog with a broad head and natural drop ears."William Chester is described as an "Ol Pit-Bull Man" who bred alapahas that were often man aggressive. Chester's old family silver dollar recipe: catahoula x american pit bull terrier x mountain bulldog. It is absolutely true that it is often impossible to distinguish an ALAPAHA BLUE BULLDOG from an american bulldog or from an american pit bull terrier precisely because these bulldogs are a pit bull mix.
Conclusion: Any city seeking to establish BSL with regards to pit bulls should craft their legislation so that it covers all the variations of the american bulldog because american bulldogs are nothing more than a pit bull mix that have inherited physical, temperamental and behavioral traits of the pit bull.
4. GREATER SWISS MOUNTAIN DOG. A, B,D, G As you can see a photo was purposely used that hides the muzzle length of the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. Also note the fixity of the color pattern in the GREATER SWISS MOUNTAIN DOG that is both characteristic and distinguishing.
Conclusion:Animal control officers would have no problem distinguishing a GREATER SWISS MOUNTAIN DOG in real life because of their size and differing body and head types.
Photos of VIZSLAS:
5. VIZSLA - G - Often described as looking like a red Weimeraner. They look nothing like a pit bull except that they are colored like a "red nose" pit bull. The VIZSLA rescue association has been made aware that some rescues are trying to pass off red nose pit bulls as VIZSLA mixes and they're pissed off about it.
Conclusion: The ridge is a dead giveaway for the dogs that possess it. And even without the ridge, the body type and head shape are very different than a pit bull. Animal Control officers who see this dog in real life will have no problem distinguishing it from a pit bull.
7. DOGO ARGENTINO - A, D, E. This is considered the Argentine version of the mastiff, but it is much more closely related to the pit bull and other fighting dogs than other mastiff breeds are. 19th century bull terriers (the pit fighting dogs of the 19th century) were bred with mastiffs and bulldogs to create the fighting dog of cordoba. That is virtually the same mix of dogs that created the pit bull breeds. From the fighting dog of cordoba breeders created the larger DOGO ARGENTINO as a big game hunting dog by breeding with the great dane, pointer, bull terrier, english bulldog, dogue de bordeaux, boxer, and pyrenean mastiff. However, DOGO ARGENTINOS have also been used as fighting dogs. DOGO ARGENTINOS are in general larger, with heavier legs, and slightly smaller jaw muscles than pit bulls. Here is a man bragging that DOGO ARGENTINOS have a bite second only to the pit bull.
Conclusion: It is indeed difficult to distinguish a DOGO ARGENTINO from a pit bull because these dogs were both bred using the same foundation stock for exactly the same purpose. Tia Torres claims she was asked to provide a white pit bull for an advertising campaign and she used this DOGO ARGENTINO for that job. Any community considering BSL should write their description so that it covers DOGO ARGENTINOS despite the dogo's relative scarcity.
Conclusion: Animal Control when faced with arguably the most common pet dog of the 20th and 21st century will see the water dog's characteristic double coat and otter tail in no time.

9. BULLMASTIFF - A, E These dogs weigh between 110 and 130 pounds.
Conclusion: Animal Control can tell the difference between the BULLMASTIFF and a pit bull in real life.
10. JACK RUSSELL TERRIER - A, E JACK RUSSELL TERRIERS weigh between 14 -18 pounds. The only physical characteristic they share with pit bulls is terrier ears.
Conclusion: No problem for Animal Control to distinguish.
11. FILA BRASILEIRO - A, B, D, E - This is known as the Brazilian Mastiff. These dogs are thankfully still fairly rare in the US. These dogs are so aggressive toward strangers that aggression toward dog show judges will not disqualify the dog and judges are advised not to touch the fila brasilieros while judging them. (Can you say best job ever?) Breeders acknowledge that no FILA BRASILEIRO will be friendly with strangers. Many countries ban this breed.FILA BRASILEIRO have bloodhound in their ancestry which gave them very large drooping ears. They are also extremely large, weighing a minimum of 110 pounds. These are on breed ban lists of many countries because of their their extreme aggression.
Conclusion: If AC ever encountered a FILA BRASILEIRO, they could distinguish it from a pit bull.
12. ROTTWEILER - A,B - The photo chosen deceptively shows a less typical head. ROTTWEILERS typically have rounder faces, more loose skin around the jowls, are generally larger, have a slightly longer coat, and have a color pattern that is fairly fixed.
Conclusion: Animal Control would have no problem distinguishing a pit bull from a ROTTWEILER.
13. PRESA CANARIO - A,D, E - This is the mastiff of the Canary Islands that was , beginning in the 18th century, crossed with English fighting dogs for the purpose of dog fighting. In the 1970s PRESA CANARIOS were near extinction. The breed was revived by fanciers in the 1970s and 1980s. They are suspicious of strangers and known to be aggressive with other dogs. This is the kind of dog that killed Diane Whipple. These dogs are a minimum of 100 pounds.
Conclusion: Although these dogs are generally larger and favor their mastiff ancestry, it is indeed sometimes difficult to distinguish a PRESA CANARIO from a pit bull because PRESA CANARIOS were bred using the same foundation breeds for exactly the same purpose as the pit bull terrier. Any community considering BSL should write their description so that it covers PRESA CANARIOS.
14. AMERICAN BULLDOG - A, E - The modern American bulldog is a reconstituted breed. The old south bulldog was practically extinct by the 1950s and in an effort to bring it back, the original breeders crossed the bulldogs they could find with American pit bull terriers, boxers, and mastiffs. The Bulldog Information Library informs us that the AMERICAN BULLDOG can look like a "large, coarse, leggy white pit bull." In the 70s, some were bred for dogfighting. They are still being crossed with pit bulls from famous fighting bloodlines today. The dog used to play Petey the pit bull in the recent movie remake of Little Rascals (1994) was named Kershner's Screamer and is classified as 100% Johnson type AMERICAN BULLDOG. However, it has both american pit bull terrier and american bulldog fighting lines in its pedigree.
Conclusion: Any community considering BSL should write their description so that it covers American bulldogs because it is a pit bull mix and has inherited the same physical, temperamental and behavioral traits that make pit bulls dangerous.
CANE CORSO photos:
15. CANE CORSO - A, D, E - called the Italian mastiff, Sicillian bulldog or the Sicillain mastiff. They weigh between 80 and 160 pounds. The CANE CORSO was near extinction by the 1970's when fanciers began to redevelop the breed. The CANE CORSO came to the US in the 1980s. According to breeders' clubs they are naturally dominant dogs and will never back down from a challenge and their bite is legendary.
Conclusion: Animal Control can tell the difference between the CANE CORSO and a pit bull in real life because of their classic mastiff head, heavy build and often enormous size.
PIT BULL photos:
16. PIT BULL - A, C - The PIT BULL in the original test is a very young puppy. The next four photos are purebred examples the three breeds considered to be pit bulls. They all were bred from the same foundation stock for the same purpose - pit fighting in England during the first half of the 19th century. The first dog after the puppy is the oldest and smallest breed - the STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER. The next two dogs, the AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER, and the AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER are often virtually indistinguishable, in fact, owners can dual register their dogs as AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIERS with the AKC and as AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIERS with the UKC as the dog in the last photo is.
Conclusion: PIT BULL ownership advocates like to cloud the issue by suggesting it is important to be able to distinguish one PIT BULL breed from another, however it is very clear that all of the three PIT BULL breeds closely resemble each other, are very closely related, and can all be identified as PIT BULLS by Animal Control.
17. PATTERDALE TERRIER - A, D, E - Patterdale terriers weigh between 11-16 pounds. They have been used as pit dogs and here is a link that says that many PATTERDALE TERRIERS bred in the US have "a dash of pit bull terrier in them."
Conclusion: When animal control sees a 16 pound dog, they will be able to tell the PATTERDALE TERRIER from an pit bull.
18. OLDE ENGLISH BULLDOGGE - A, D, E, F - The photo used is not only not typical of OLDE ENGLISH BULLDOGGE, I don't think it is an olde english bulldogge. Unlike the other recreated breeds, this one was very well planned and documented using a line breeding scheme developed by Ohio State University for breeding cattle for a very specific look. "The goal was to recreate a specific breed of bulldogge with the look, health and athleticism of the original bull baiting dogs, but without the extreme tenacity. The foundation crosses consisted of 1/2 english bulldog, 1/6 bullmastiff, 1/6 american pit bull terrier, and 1/6 american bulldog." Unlike other recreated bulldog clubs, this club actively discourages any kind of aggressive work or training. "The club promotes obedience training and competition, agility and coNformation showing, as well as therapy work." They especially encourage ARBA conformation events. In essence, they are interested in preserving a very specific look and breed for bench and field trials.
19. CATAHOULA - F- Also called a catahoula cur, Louisiana catahoula dog, catahoula leopard dog. These dogs are fearless pig and cattle herding dogs that do not have a bully look to them at all. They are common in parts of the south and uncommon in other parts of the country.
Conclusion: Animal control can tell the difference between a CATAHOULA and a pit bull terrier if they ever encounter one.
20. BULL TERRIER- E, G - Bull terriers are very closely related to pit bulls, but they have been bred to have a distinctive straight profile that is deceptively not at all evident in the photo used.
Conclusion: No confusion whatsoever.
21. BLACK MOUTH CUR - D, G - also known as Southern Cur, Yellow Blackmouth Cur, Blackmouth Cur, American Blackmouth Cur, Red Blackmouth Cur, Ladner Blackmouth Cur, Ladner Yellow Blackmouth Cur. You will notice the familiar deceptive angle in the first photo that foreshortens the muzzle and makes it look more like a pit bull. This is another southern herding and big game hunting dog that does not look like a bully breed. They are common in parts of the south and very uncommon in other parts of the country.
Conclusion: Animal control will have no problem distinguishing a BLACK MOUTH CUR from a pit bull if they encounter one.

22. ALANO ESPANOL - D, E, F - This is the Spanish bulldog. The breed was originally used for bull baiting, hunting big game, guarding livestock and handling wild cattle. This ancient breed played an important role in developing several molosser dog breeds such as Dogue de Bordeaux and Presa Canario. These dogs have extremely powerful jaws. I found 3 breeder listings that were all dead links for the US.
Conclusion: Although these dogs have a distinctive look, they could be easily confused with a presa canario and perhaps PIT BULLS. However, it is highly unlikely that animal control would encounter one in the United States.
BOERBOEL photos:
23. BOERBOEL - A, C, D, E, - As you can see, a deceptive photo of a very young puppy was used in the original test. Adult BOERBOEL look nothing like a pit bull. They are the most enormous mastiff type and weigh between 110 to 175 pounds and are also considered more athletic than other mastiffs. Like other large, dangerous breeds, these were nearly extinct until fanciers revived the breed in the 1980's. These are the South African mastiff bred to protect large farms and are extremely territorial and protective. They are known to have been crossed with bullmastiffs at one time. Their ancestry is largely unknown except that it is presumed that successive waves of settlers brought their biggest, fiercest mastiff-type dogs along with them to South Africa from many parts of the world.
Conclusion: The BOERBOEL will be immediately distinguishable from a pit bull by its size, and classic mastiff head
CA DE BOU photos:
24. CA DE BOU D, E, - also called Perro de Presa Majorquin, Mallorquin Bulldog - This bulldog was used for controlling bulls, baiting bulls, and dog fighting. Look at this link to see what one fancier thinks is the correct type of dog. It should not look too much like a bulldog, and looks almost exactly like a pit bull. I could find no breeders or dogs in the US.
Conclusion: This dog is extremely rare and basically non-existant in the United States. However, it looks very similar to a pit bull because it was bred with the same foundation stock and for the same purposes. If I were crafting breed restriction laws, I would include it just because pit bull advocates always threaten if their pit bulls are restricted, they're going to inflict other dangerous breeds on the public.
25. THAI RIDGEBACK - B, F, G, - There are 18 thai ridgebacks in the whole country available for adoption and 5 breeders that I can find.
Conclusion: They look nothing like pit bulls and are extremely rare.
Here is what the test would look like without the purposefully deceptive photos. Can you find the fighting dogs that should be banned?
Key: 1. Boxer 2. Dogue de Bordeaux 3. Alapaha Blue Bull Dog 4. Great Swiss Mountain Dog 5. Vizsla 6. Rhodesian Ridgeback 7. Dogo Argentino 8. Chocolate Labrador Retriever 9. Bullmastiff 10. Jack Russell Terrier 11. Fila Brasileiro 12. Rottweiler 13. Presa Canario 14. American Bulldog 15. Cane Corso 16. American Pit Bull Terrier 17. Patterdale Terrier 18. Olde English Bulldogge 19. Catahoula 20. Bull Terrier 21. Black Mouth Cur 22. Alano Espanol 23. Boerboel 24. Ca de Bou 25. Thai Ridgeback
Even with the less deceptive photos, the there still remain the problems of identifying a dog by one photograph and the improbability of encountering most of these breeds.
The breeds that are most confused with pit bulls are most often breeds that are
1. pit bull mixes
2. share the same foundation breeds and were bred for the same purpose.
3. also dangerous
4. often still crossed with pit bulls to this day

Other breeds that are included are
1. protective mastiff breeds
2. also dangerous
3. often crossed with pit bulls to this day.

the two faces of petsmart

petsmart charities awarded a $240,000 grant to the utah religious cult known as BEST FRIENDS. BFAS will use this money in their SAVING AMERICA'S GRIPPING DOG program. their strategy will be to target a handful of cities and inundate its citizens with pit bull propaganda in an effort to decrease dirt naps and get more gripping dogs into family homes. accomplishing this irresponsible goal is not possible with the pit bull's current image as a savage fighting dog, ie, the truth.

hillsborough county, florida is one of the four lucky recipients of the grant money. they have been hand picked to redefine the pit bull image and increase adoption rates and to decrease euthanasia by at least 10%. hillsborough county takes in over 7000 pit bulls each year. approximately half will be euthanized. the county need only save 350 pit bulls to earn that $60K check (assuming the grant is divided up equally). that comes to $171.42 for each pit bull.

hillsborough pit nutters say they will focus on community outreach. they will set up booths & workshops and pimp wiggle butts and wiggle butt trinkets to the gullible. in order to do this, they will have to rewrite history. provides a sample of the nutters' turd polishing agenda:
From the 1900s to 1970s, pit bull terriers reigned as the ideal family pet, historians say. The breed was the all-American poster dog for both World Wars. Obedient and kid friendly, pits popped up in middle and upper class households worldwide.

Then ugly stories started to make the news. Illegal dogfighting. Children maimed.
never mind that those ugly mauling stories started to make the news in 1877 or that dog fighting rarely made the news prior to the 1970s because it was still LEGAL in many states and not taken seriously in other states. the nutters present this as if using pit bulls in dog fighting is a recent phenomenon.

be careful what you wish for petsmart. if BEST FRIENDS is successful, there could be a constitutional amendment replacing the bald eagle with america's gripping dogs. that might force you to re-open your doggie daycare doors to all that frankenmauling fun.

weekly frankenmauler roundup 04/22/11

rip Cotton
reluctant hero of the week #1: Philip Tatum of blanchard, louisiana Tatum was walking his bichon frise when he saw a pit bull poke his head through a fence. next thing he knows, two pits are out of the yard and attacking Cotton. Tatum pried the jaws of the black pit off of his dog and the pit turned on him. (i guess this mutant would not pass the in the pit safe handling test.) his daughter took Cotton to a nearby gym while Tatum choked the black pit to death. the other mutant was later seized by AC and euthanized. Cotton later died at the vet. Tatum is in the hospital being treated for an infection from the mauling. and the nutters have not been named and refused to speak on camera.
real men don't spend what *little* extra cash they have on another tattoo or pose with weapons, motocycles and jack daniels. real men don't flee when pittie is in the red zone. real men own bichons. and this real man turned pittie's lights out with his bare hands.
Crystal, he's a keeper.

reluctant hero of the week #2: Kathy Stievenart of france this shit bull attack in france is identical to those in the US. regardless of continent, nationality, or language nutters are all the same inside and out. skanky tattooed losers delivering apathetic bullshit excuses and failing to express even a modicum of remorse or compassion for their mutants' victims.

13 yr old Lady

translation compliments of snack sized dog.

skanky tattooed pit nutter SABRINA CROMBEZ, too inconsiderate to keep her neighbors safe and too stupid to understand why her mutant had to die.

04.18.11 paradise, california 30 yr old JUSTIN LASTER'S girl friend lost control of his mutants BUBBA and NYLA. the frankenmaulers were in hot pursuit of a deer and ended up in 73 yr old Gerald Moore's yard. one of the mutants was shot. i am not sure why but the mutants were sent to quarantine. while under the care and control of the shelter, they escaped and attacked a carrier with a cat in it. the cat died. these two mutants have quite an impressive history. a year ago, LASTER'S mutants were accused of killing 3 chickens, injuring 3 horses and 1 pony - and these are just the animals that we KNOW about. LASTER denies his shit bulls were responsible for the carnage yet he still has outstanding vet bills from the mutant joy ride. JUSTIN LASTER said his dogs are "escape artists" and "stubborn". and he promises to keep them "on a short leash" from now on. hopefully it's so short, they redirect their "stubbornness" on him sooner than later. LASTER is upset that his sheetrock eating, metal bending, kennel destroying, leash busting shit bulls were on the receiving end of Moore's 20 gauge shot gun. LASTER is upset, even though they have a frankenmauling record consisting of 1 cat, 3 chickens, 3 horses and a pony (possibly more). LASTER is upset the old man shot his dogs and wants the old man arrested. i am upset the hideous frankenmaulers weren't on the receiving end of a 12 or a 10 gauge.

04.19.11 louisville, kentucky another shelter fatality compliments of shit bulls. THOMAS GUELDA'S 2 dogs were malnurished and seized by animal control. he was charged with animal cruelty. while his dogs were in the care and custody of animal control, a pit bull managed to get through the metal divider and kill one of GUELDA'S dogs, a lab mix. the shelter spokesperson said this has never happened before and they will paid for the private cremation of the 11 yr old dog and correct the kennel design with some of the $40K grant money they just received. a former employee has stepped forward to say this is not the first incident with the steel door dividers. a mastiff killed a beagle in the same manner last august.

04.15.11 manotak, alaska the castle law failed this week in alaska. a shit bull strayed onto the property of William Pauk and attacked his dog. so he grabbed his 22, hopped on his 4 wheeler and chased it down and shot it. the mutant is still alive, but maybe, *hopefully* not for long. Pauk was charged with animal cruelty, weapons misconduct, assault and criminal mischief. i am hoping this guy is a felon. i really hate to see LE charging people for defending their property.

04.16.11 starkville, ohio three boxers and a pit bull attacked a poodle. it had to be euthanized. three of the 4 attacking dogs' rabies vaccines had expired. one of them was declared dangerous and the owners of the mutilated poodle said they had made complaints to the apartment complex about the shit bull in the past.

04.19.11 new zealand pit nutter PATRICIA CHAPMAN pled guilty to owning a shit bull and was fined $1700 for the murder of a 5 month old shar-pei. Tyson's windpipe, lungs, eye and throat were damaged. he died the next day after surgery. (two people were bitten trying to intervene) CHAPMAN accepted responsibility. she was "appalled" that her "good friend" killed the puppy. of course, her good friend had never shown aggression before. shit bulls are classified as dangerous and are required to be muzzled. nutter thumbed her nose at the law and it cost her $1700 and the lives of 2 dogs, well one dog and one mutant.

04.18.11 charlotte, north carolina a stray shit bull attacked a K9 officer during a drug call. it's dirt napping now.

DAVID STACKHOUSE was charged with assault with a deadly weapon (frankenmauler). what a surprise, the deadly weapon had a documented history of biting two people. neighbors said it attacked other animals in the neighborhood.

don't they make a lovely couple?

04.19.11 forum talk Another deadly Pit Bull attack with deadly results
A loose pit bull killed a smaller dog over on Nova street today. This is the third attack in less than two weeks. The owner of the Pit Bull has had other dogs that he has let run loose for years. A friend of mine sold her home over there because of that plus the nasty rentals over there. If you watched last weeks council meeting Deb Stoup showed what a pit bull did to her small dacshund. This has got to stop!

04.19.11 powder springs, georgia Anne Ranson was sitting in her living with her little dog Duckie on her lap when in pops two shit bulls.

JENNA MILLER (daughter) said the current attack was not done by their dogs . she claims the shit bulls belonged to "a guy walking them down the street that day". JENNA MILLER said they do not have those vicious pits anymore. they were probably spirited away to another county within an hour of the recent attack.

fucktard LISA O'CONNOR - owner of DUGG
shrewsbury, massachusetts the O'CONNORS adopted an adult pit bull named DUGG and within a couple of months it VIOLATED city ordinance and escaped the yard and savaged a small LEASHED poodle. despite emergency vet care to the tune of THOUSANDS of dollars, the poodle died. now the O'NUTTERS are dragging this death sentence out with endless appeals increasing their already disproportionately huge burden on society. here we have this fucktard testifying that the little black poodle was on the back of her precious people pleasing mutant, biting it! O'CONNOR further claims that when she tried to stop the poodle from attacking her HIDEOUS AT LARGE MUTANT SHIT BULL, the POODLE bit off the end of her finger. wow, that is some poodle!!! i think ED FARON would have liked to get some of that blood in his yard. TOO BAD IT'S DEAD! neighbors are testifying in hopes of defeating the efforts of high priced city slicker animal rights nut job shyster lawyer STEVEN WISE who is hard at work trying to keep the frankenmauler alive. how the fuck do you sleep at night WISE? Kathy Scibelli said she witnessed the O'CONNORS previous dog named STEVE attack other dogs in the neighborhood. STEVE also had a scuffle with the mail carrier. the judge is now deliberating.
i've been following this attack closely. at long last we get to see what one of these O'CONNOR pukes looks like. this story really pisses me off. i just want to punch her in the face.
i HATE these people.

citizen shootings

hermiston, oregon pit bull mix chased two people, the man shot at it. it is unknown if it was hit. hopefully it went off and died somewhere.

norfolk, virginia the police shot a pit/boxer mix who trapped a woman in her car. unfortunately, the injury was not fatal. the nutter took his mutant to the vet. i have stopped covering all police shootings, i only mention this one because the victim also made a previous complaint that the people pleaser was trying to get into her house. home invasions, car attacks and busting through windows are breed specific behaviors.
