Your pit bull wants to kill you – A list of victims of their own pit bulls – pit bulls that kill their owners

This list begins in 2002.
These folks all were killed by their/their family’s pit bulls: Carter Delaney, Carmen Ramos, Roberto Aguilera, Kelly Chapman, Brandon Coleman, Lorinze Reddings, Raymond Tomco, Darla Napora, Joseph Hines, Kelly Chapman, Christine Staab, Ethel Horton, Chester Jordan, Jennie Erquiaga, Tonia Parks, Gerald Adelmund, Blanche Bodeur, Mabel McAllister, Pamela Rushing, Edward Mitchell, Linda Leal, Michael Winters, Mattie Daugherty, Justin Lane, John Reynolds, Johnny Wilson, Mary Diana Bernal.
For chilling 911 calls, see youtube Tina Marie Canterbury and Clifford Wright, who last seen in his front yard, tending the landscaping, with his beloved pit bull at his side; found horribly mutilated a short time hours later on his front porch (his esophagus was gone). Oops, Charles Hagerman. Oh my, same week here’s another: Rebecca Carey who rescued pits and other “bully” dogs. Debra Roberts (found dead, her leg was almost chewed off). Wow, another “rescue” person, Mary Jo Hunt October, killed in her own backyard by her own dogs, while frantic neighbors couldn’t save her. Elsie Gracie, 91, pronounced dead at the scene, many wounds to body.
I don’t include the death of babysitting Grandma Betty Todd, as she did not live at that home. She was attacked by her son’s pit bull. When police arrived at the scene, no ambulance was called, as her throat and spinal injuries were incompatible with life. Their pit had never showed aggression, not even to Betty during previous visits.
This list doesn’t include dead or maimed children, that list is longer.
This list doesn’t include non-fatal injuries, such as limb amputations, broken legs, there are many more of them!
This list doesn’t include visiting, passing or neighborhood pets, that list is horrifically endless, and grows by the minute, from coast to coast…

It might be acceptable if pits only maimed/killed their “consenting adult” owners, but more often the victims are neighbors, visitors or passersby (pet/people).

If pit bulls can be overcome by the pit instinct to tug-and-not-stop, so that they kill adult family members, we should not be surprised when they maul or kill neighbors (pets/humans). – See more at: http://www.abc2news.com/dpp/news/region/baltimore_county/woman-injured-by-pit-bull-in-her-home#sthash.iX6JJsMw.dpuf

This pit bull owner trained her pit bull to maim her – Woman injured by pit bull in her home

A Baltimore County woman is recovering after an attack by her own pit bull.

On Sunday, blood remained on the side of the home where the attack happened, in the 7600 block of North Point Road.

Police say it started inside the house, and as the woman who lives there struggled to get out — the pit bull followed her.

She only escaped by locking herself inside of the pickup truck in the driveway.

Rescue crews rushed her to Johns Hopkins Bayview.

The victim’s boyfriend did not want to speak on camera; off camera he said her injuries are very serious. He’s worried she may not regain full fun room in her arm. She has already had two surgeries since the attack on Friday.”

After the attack the pit bull and another one that lives at the home ran down North Point Road.

County police had to use a reverse-911 system to notify everyone who lives in the area.

“It was a high priority and a concern of the police department to alert the neighbors in that area and to make sure we could locate these pit bulls as soon as possible, with the possibility of them injuring someone else,” said Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for the Baltimore County Police Department.

Hours later, officers found the dogs near North Point State Park, then shot and killed the pit bull that attacked the woman; the other dog was taken to animal control.

The day before the attack, the House of Delegates voted that all breeds, not just pit bulls, should be considered inherently dangerous.

Supporters hailed the vote. “Regardless of lineage or breed each dog has an individual personality, and breed does not play a part in a dog’s personality,” said Kirstyn Cobb of the SPCA.

But opponents say it will make it harder for dog attack victims, to find justice.

“The idea is that we will now say that dog owners must know that their dogs could do this and so you could take them in to court and they get the opportunity to rebut that and prove that they don’t. It you can’t prove that they knew this, they’re absolved of it,” said Tony Solesky, whose son was seriously wounded by a pit bull in 2009.

Phuket man gravely savaged in pit bull attack

Mr Tiarasak was walking in front of his house on February 6 when he was attacked. The three dogs, belonging to a neighbour, had got loose and had just been chased away by people nearby after they tried to bit a woman.

Running back home, they encountered Mr Tiarasak and set upon him instead.

“The three dogs attacked him as soon as they saw him. He was unable to fight back and could only yell for some help. He was bitten repeatedly before some villagers came and chased the dogs away from him,” said Pol Maj Sanit Nookong of Wichit police.

Although the attack took place 20 days ago, Mr Tiarasak’s mother Benjarat did not report it initially to the police because she believed the dogs’ owner would pay for her son’s medical treatment. When he refused to do so, she went to the police.

“[My son] has already spent 20 days in Bangkok Hospital Phuket and may be released in the next two or three days as his wounds on arms and chest are getting better now,” Mrs Benjarat told The Phuket News.

However, she said that doctors were concerned about large wounds on both his legs. If these healed, they had said, he would be discharged, but if not, then he would need skin grafts.

“Both of his legs have big wounds. He lost quite a lot of skin so we have to see whether the skin will grow back or not,” she explained.

“So far treatment has cost B700,000 and there will be more bills, but the dogs’ owner has refused to pay anything.”

When Mrs Benjarat went to Wichit Police Station yesterday (February 25) she took with her pictures of her son’s injuries and the hospital bills.

“She reported the dogs’ owner for ‘having in his care a ferocious or vicious animal, allowing it to wander about alone in a manner likely to cause injury to a person’,” Maj Sanit said.

“Up to now she and the owner have been unable to come to an agreement on compensation.”

An Upstate man is mourning the loss of his pet, after police say it was attacked by a pit bull.

Anderson Police responded to a home on Jeb Stuart Avenue in Anderson on Sunday morning, after getting a call about a vicious dog.

Police reports say the victim was walking his dog in the area, when a pit bull ran out from behind the home and started attacking his pet. The victim said he tried to hit the pit bull with his cane, but it didn’t seem to have an affect on the animal.

The pit bull’s owner told officials the dog escaped his home while he was trying to leave out the back door. Police reports say he also tried to get his pit bull off the dog it was attacking, by hitting it with a closed fist.

Unfortunately the pit bull didn’t stop until the other other dog’s skin was torn, exposing its insides. The dog died as a result of the attack.

Animal Control was contacted, but there’s no word on whether the animal will be put down. Its owner is not facing any charges.

Violent Pit bull kills couple’s dog, injures another

A loose pit bull was shot and killed by a Prince George’s County officer Tuesday after police received several calls for help to restrain the dog.

Around 4:30 p.m. on Lorring Drive in District Heights, police responded to an “aggressive dog” call at an apartment complex, said Lt. Bill Alexander, a county police spokesman.

Alexander said the call was made by apartment management at Doral Terrace Apartments on Lorring Drive, when a representative told police there was an aggressive dog that was charging at the apartment’s security officers.

“A school bus was either there or imminently arriving, so they wanted to ensure the school kids’ safety,” Alexander said.

The two security guards were unarmed and were attempting to corral the dog.

After the police officer arrived, the dog aggressively charged toward the security guards and the officer, so the officer fired his gun, Alexander said. He said the dog died from a gunshot wound on the scene.

Police do not yet know the dog’s owner, Alexander said.

“The investigation is still ongoing and ultimately the owner could be charged if they are identified,” he said.

According to police officials, officers added animal-restraint training to their in-service training classes in May 2012. Additionally, the department received 75 animal-restraint poles, one for each squad.

Alexander said the responding officer was not equipped with one of the 4-foot metal restraint poles and he did not know if the officer had completed the “Dealing with Aggressive Animals” course yet as part of annual in-service training.

The course came about when the department decided to promote non-lethal tactics to handle aggressive animals, in part, after a settlement was reached in a lawsuit filed by Berwyn Heights mayor Cheye Calvo to the county.

Calvo’s home was raided by a county SWAT team in July 2008, after a package of marijuana was mailed to his home to be intercepted in a smuggling operation in which Calvo and his family were later cleared of any involvement. Calvo, who was never charged, said SWAT team members entered his home and shot his two dogs, Chase and Payton.

“This underscores the need to get training for as many officers as possible,” he said Tuesday. “I’ve never been one to say lethal force is never an option, but I would question if there was an actual threat or were other options available. Sometimes lethal force is necessary, the question is if there was another option.”

The unnamed officer in Tuesday’s incident has not been suspended but will face a discharge of firearms investigation, a standard procedure for anytime an officer fires their service weapon, Alexander said.

“All evidence has so far suggested that the officer was not at fault,” he said.

A representative at Doral Terrace declined to comment.
