Yes that’s right . All dogs are equally vicious. That’s because all dogs were equally bred to fight in pits. That’s why a fight between a pit bull and a chihuahua always ends in a tie. That’s why all dogs share equally in catastrophic injuries to people like this little girl in the story. Please, as soon as possible, send her a nice letter explaining your brilliant observations so she’ll have an better understanding of what happened to her. Maybe bring your pittie by for therapy. Unbelievable.
All the pit-bull people who say ‘ooo, my world will be destroyed without my weapon dog’ are pathological liars. After all, when the court ruling came down they all massively said they’d dump their pit bulls if they had to be responsible for insuring them (or else moving). Apparently the pit bull isn’t worth the price of insurance to them. Why should we allow it to be worth the lives of our children, elderly parents, and normal dogs?
When the pit nuts threaten to leave a neighborhood (or town) because pit bulls are restricted or banned, I always have to laugh. Some threat. We’ll be as glad to see them go as we are to see their weapon dogs disappear. It makes real estate prices jump, by the way.
Police said they plan to aggressively enforce dog licensing and vaccination laws in the aftermath of a pit bull terrier attack on a 4-year-old girl.
The enforcement focus will be on all breeds of dogs, Plainville police Capt. Brian Mullins said, since dogs that attack people as well as other dogs are typically not licensed or properly vaccinated.

The incident that gave rise to the enforcement effort was a Nov. 15 attack on a 4-year-old girl at 23 Rosemont Drive, Mullins said. A woman and her 4-year-old daughter were visiting the home of Ryan McCarthy, 35, and his grandmother when the attack occurred. McCarthy was not home, but his grandmother was outside attempted to move the dog inside. When the dog spotted the 4-year-old it broke away from the grandmother, knocking her down, and attacked the girl.

The dog grabbed the girl’s head, shook her violently and inflicted traumatic injuries to her face, Mullins said. Neighbors were able to chase off the dog, but not until after the child was badly hurt, he said.
The child was taken by ambulance to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for treatment. She’s since been released but will require follow up treatment, Mullins said.
The dog ran off after the attack but was caught later in the day. It was euthanized, Mullins said.
McCarthy was cited for having an unvaccinated dog, an unlicensed dog, a nuisance dog and a roaming dog.
Police said they’re focus on enforcing dog licensing and vaccination requirements to protect the public.
“The only agenda we have here is public safety,” he said.
ASADENA, Md. (WJZ)—An elderly woman is rushed to the hospital after being attacked by a neighbor’s dog. This latest incident comes as the stand-off over pit bulls in Maryland heats up.
Jessica Kartalija has the latest.
In Anne Arundel County, Medics are called to the 200-block of Arundel Road when police say an 89-year old Pasadena woman is mauled by a pit bull.
“It’s disturbing to me to think that there’s an animal so close that could cause me potential harm,” said Vanessa Feeheley.
Neighbors tell WJZ, the Riviera Beach neighborhood is very dog-friendly. Now they’re fearful for their own safety.
“I don’t want to have to ward off an unleashed pet to protect myself or my dog,” Feeheley said.
“I think it’s wrong to have pit bulls attack other dogs and people,” one neighbor said.
Police say, the victim was in her fenced yard when the dog grabbed a hold of her upper arm and wouldn’t let go.
The woman was brought to the hand center at Union Memorial Hospital.
Wednesday’s attack is the latest in a number of pit bull cases across Maryland.
In a recent ruling, the Maryland Court of Appeals labels pit bulls inherently dangerous and holds a dog’s owner and their landlord responsible for an attack.
Now some pit bull owners are being told to get rid of their pet or get out.
“If my girls are taken away from me, my world will be destroyed,” one pit bull owner said.
In Pasadena, the pit bull was taken to animal control, where officers are investigating the attack.
The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
“The dog is one of the few animals almost invariably spoken of in negative and derogatory terms [in Jewish Scripture]. There apparently was little personal relationship between biblical man and the dog.. Dogs are described as being noisy [Psalms 59:7-14], greedy [Isaiah 56:11], stupid [Isaiah 56:10], filthy [Proverbs 26:11]…. The term “dog” is applied as an insult to humans [I Kings 22:38]. Furthermore, “dog” appears to have been a derogatory designation for male prostitutes [Deuteronomy 23:19].”
commercial dog foods illegal under Jewish law, even when they’re acceptable the rest of the year. It’s possible to juggle these requirements, but easy for others to assume that I am cutting corners on kashrut for the sake of my canines.
Beyond theology and practicality, there are visceral reasons for Jews to be anti-dog. From the Crusades to the Pogroms to the Holocaust, the relationship between Jews and dogs have mostly seen the former fleeing the business ends of the latter, set on them by anti-Semitic persecutors. If Jews have a racial memory of dogs, it’s not a happy one especially the pit bulls used on us during world war 2.
More lies by the pit bull advocates with their propaganda.
Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.
As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of political warfare.
While the term propaganda has justifiably acquired a strongly negative connotation by association with its most manipulative and jingoistic examples (e.g. Nazi Propaganda used to justify the Holocaust), propaganda in its original sense was neutral, and could refer to uses that were generally benign or innocuous, such as public health recommendations, signs encouraging citizens to participate in a census or election, or messages encouraging persons to report crimes to the police, among others.
Research showing severe dog bites are fewer in Manitoba areas with pit bull bans.
The study, conducted by University of Manitoba scientists, shows the number of dog bites requiring hospitalization have decreased since pit bull bans went into effect in 2005.
It states the number of hospitalization attacks fell from 3.5 per 100,000 population to 2.8 after the legislation took effect.
feel the breed is inherently aggressive.
The study doesn’t purport to be the last word on the issue but does contain some compelling data, particularly when comparing Brandon, which has never prohibited pit bulls and Winnipeg, which has, said study co-author, Dr. Malathi Raghavan.
“I would not claim this is the ultimate study… all dogs bite,” she said.
But she said the data collected from 16 larger Manitoba jurisdictions, along w
ith recent Spanish and Texas studies suggesting similar results, is compelling.
“We should pay attention to the fact there is something going on here,” said Raghavan.
The Spanish data showed similar hospitalization reductions in the absence of pit bulls while the Texas research indicated higher rates of death, severe injury and treatment costs are linked to the breed.
Raghavan said she was careful to isolate the pit bull factor from others, such as changes in dog populations.
“The legislation was a variable coming out significantly,” she said.
