Let’s Talk About the ASPCA’s Lies & Their Gentle Killer Pit Bull

The ASPCA has been caught promoting a killer pit bull as “gentle” but they won’t take down their lie because they figure their megaphone is bigger than mere pit bull attack victims’ screams. They’re right about that, and their inaction proves that they are absolutely willing to lie to promote pit bulls and they do not care that their propaganda is killing our pets. At All.

Biscotti Was Killed By a Pit Bull the ASPCA deemed "Gentle"

The ASPCA got in on one of pit bull propagandists most favorite tropes - the police officer called to a scene with reports of a vicious or abused pit bull, and then finding to their delight that said pit bull is really a cream puff. The pit bull and the officer bond so fast and hard that the police officer has to take it home and make it his or hers. There are several of these stories going around interspersed much more common stories of police officers shooting and killing pit bulls that are charging at them.

The ASPCA’s cop is NYPD officer Joshua Sailor who responded to a complaint on September 30, 2016 that a dog had been barking for days. A pit bull owner had tied up his pit in a foot wide space between a door and a screen door for days with no food or water and the neighbors finally called because of the barking.

It was love at first sight for Officer Sailor and Maryann the abused pit bull. He rushed the pit to the ASPCA Animal Hospital where it stayed for a week before Officer Sailor renamed the pit bull Mila and took it home to his apartment in a building that doesn’t allow dogs. But never fear, Officer Sailor was given a special exception and was allowed to keep his new pit bull there because he and Mila are…special.
It was once believed that tutus and flower headbands made pit bulls safe
Sadly, that has turned out to be a another myth - Meet Mila the ASPCA's Gentle Killer
The ASPCA made propaganda hay out of Officer Sailor and Mila. In January 2017, the ASPCA featured Sailor and Mila on a their “news” page in a story entitled “An Officer and a Gentle-Dog: Maryann’s Touching Rescue” in which is described the heart warming rescue and the ASPCA special luncheon held on December 13th honoring Sailor and other NYPD officers for helping animals.

And then the unthinkable predictable happened. A little over six months after Officer Sailor rescued Mila, Mila dug under a fence, ran into the neighbor’s yard and fatally mauled a pekingese/beagle mix named Biscotti. Biscotti was leashed in his own yard. He was going potty and completely unaware of the existence of the pit bull when it fatally mauled him right in front of his owner.

“Biscotti was just squatting down and this white image came out of the woods in the back of our yard and tackles him, completely unprovoked,” said Biscotti’s owner, Louise. “(Mila) slaps him down on his back and begins shaking him. She was peeling away her ear like an artichoke.”

Biscotti suffered with horrible damage for a couple days before he passed away. Biscotti had gotten his owner, Louise, through kidney cancer and breast cancer. She doesn’t want his death to be in vain. She wants laws that protect her community from pit bulls.

Mila the pit bull was staying with Officer Sailor’s girlfriend who co-owns the pit at the time it escaped to kill Biscotti. According to a neighbor, the pit bull was working with a trainer at least once a week. (Sounds like someone’s dear pit bull was having behavior problems) When asked about the attack, the ASPCA said that they weren’t aware of the attack and besides, they hadn’t provided any “post-adoption behavior consultation for this animal.” But now that they’ve been apprised of the mauling, the ASPCA hasn’t edited or removed its propaganda piece about the “gentle” pit bull that they now know is a killer.

Post Script:
This is not the only police-officer-saves-pit-bull story that doesn’t end well for innocent neighboring animals.

In 2013 Officer Grandchamp answered a vicious dog call and ended up adopting the pit bull. Pit bull advocates ate up his story as he told people to not judge pit bulls. Then his pit bull attacked a pony in the pony’s own barn. Read about it HERE.

With these success stories in mind, won't you be an ASPCA angel and save a gentle killer pit bull today?

I read about this story over on

This is what I had to say,

"The ASPCA disagrees, claiming that breed-specific laws would create 'the unfair and inhumane targeting of responsible pet guardians and their dogs.'
Instead, communities should adopt breed-neutral laws that 'hold reckless dog guardians accountable for their dogs’ aggressive behavior,' the agency said."

Let me get this straight, is the ASPCA claiming that officer Joshua Sailor was irresponsible, or reckless? That's what it sounds like to me.

Wanna talk about unfair and inhumane? Biscotti had his ear ripped off, suffered a spinal cord injury, and eventually died. Seeing as there's only one breed (PIT BULL) that does this with regularity, I'd say it's unfair and inhumane to rescue pit bulls, so that they may brutally attack and kill harmless dogs.

Breed Specific Legislation is necessary to prevent pit bull attacks in the first place. Not punish irresponsible and reckless nutters in the second place.

Scary stuff.I've not been able to walk my three dogs after a loose Pit came after us.I was helped by a young man who put his car between us.When I went to my local animal control for help,I asked what we could do together to solve the "pit problem".I was informed that "all dogs can attack" and pits are the same as any other.When the officer said he'd had a pit in the past,I knew nothing was going to happen and I was correct.I stay in my own back yard with my pets where I know they are safe.I honestly don't know what will have to happen to turn this awful tide.

THIS is why you get a gun BEFORE you need it. If a pit gets into my yard it won't be leaving except in a bag.

I am so sick of the ASPCA commercials on late night television. I completely understand why they push pit bulls, for only $19 a month, you can help all the rescued fighting pit bulls that deserve a chance at a normal life, filled with love, warmth, food, vet care, and a second chance.

Yeah, I want to rescue, not only pit bulls, but pit bulls that have been used in dog fights. The commercials are 15 minutes long, with a near sobbing old lady with a breaking voice, speaking for all of the mutants that should never have been born. Dog fighting is the worst torture a pit bull could endure, but it's okay when a pit bull dismembers and kills a normal dog?

I wish I could run a commercial asking for donations, showing footage of pit bulls killing fluffy lap dogs, in tears, talking about how unfair and inhumane it is that we allow a flesh eating dog breed to roam our neighborhoods without regard for other life.

I wonder if it would be easier to get strict liability for all dogs established rather than BSL?

BSL would do more to prevent attacks but if owners started going to jail when their dog killed someone one as opposed to writing it off as an act of Dog or Dog's will maybe eventually people would stop adopting the number one killer dog.

If nothing else it would be fun to watch the pitdiots explain why this was unfair.

"I thought the only pits that attacked were trained to do so by dog fighters?
You have told us that your wittle wiggle butt wouldn't hurt a fly so you should be all for this right?
I could see chihuahua owners being against it since everyone knows they bite more often. Surely owners of gentle nanny dogs have nothing to fear from strict liability?"

I like the strict liability idea.Surprised it hasn't happened yet.

That pit bull PSA was HILARIOUS! I was laughing so hard I was crying.

Nutters come across like this guy does, only nutters genuinely believe the garbage they say about pit bulls.

Thank you for sharing that Ka D.

Thank you Ka D, I added the public service announcement to the post. I'd forgotten about this. Hilarious!

Want to be the envy of everyone else at the dog fight?
Show up wearing some tasteful apparel from this collection:

There have been a few cases that needed this sticker. It would have made it easier for the police to find them.

I am surprised Shopify allows this.

sorry njbeachgirl, your comment landed in spam.

i agree with you. i love the idea of strict liability and mandatory insurance for all dog breeds. let the insurance industry have free reign to determine rates. lol.

KaD said...

I agree, and I think there should be a few additional basic dog laws: Any dog that kills or seriously harms a person or pet needs to be PUT DOWN.

Anyone who wants to get a dog should have to get a license FIRST, and submit a report about their breed of choice to the local bureau, complete with the breeds exercise requirements, general temperament and friendliness, and ability to do bodily harm to make sure the potential new owner doesn't have cranial rectal inversion. If they flunk, no dog.

Prospective owner should be tested on local laws and punishments (leashing, livestock chasing, etc) as well as have a home and yard inspection, all at THEIR expense.

NO breeding without approval. Any puppies bred without a breeders license will be subject to a fine of $1000 per pup plus any amount the pup sold for. Dogs already glutting shelters are banned from breeding entirely, with mandatory spay and neuter enacted.

i agree. we should treat dogs like cars/guns.

we license people and register cars/guns. same should apply to dogs. license people/register the dog. that way, these losers can't just go out and replace their ugly mutants after they are euthanized for busting through the fence and killing the neighbor's dog or cat.

Sadly not even a person's backyard is safe from a determined to attack and kill pibbles.Not unless you sit out there with your pets armed to the teeth and packing some heat.

Your Quiet Neighbor said...

Strict liability for ALL dogs? Uh-oh, the doggie rescue movement isn't going to like that. Not one bit.

To which I say, too bad. If the so-called humane movement wasn't so aggressive about pushing dogs into our communities, we'd all be a lot safer. And our communities wouldn't sound like kennels.

It's time to get real about dog ownership. Because it comes with enormous responsibility that few people are up to.

You people are fucking dumb. Learn math and statistics. Then shut the fuck up, because you clearly have no clue what you are talking about.

Unknown said...

Ka D,
I have been saying the exact same thing about licensing for years...including every prerequisite you listed with one exception: I think people need a license to breed.

KaD said...

Brilliant Unthinking, I mean Unknown. Try having a coherent thought once in a while. Brainless ranting makes it easy to ID moron pit owners.
