According to the updated article. The electric fence sign was posted at the beginning of a very, very long driveway.
The driver dropped off the package at the front door and the owner thinks he may have rung the bell and that's when the dogs came out and started barking at the delivery guy and frightened him. Based on the blood trail it's obvious the dogs followed him all the way down the driveway. One of the dogs was cut inside of his mouth so I imagine that driver was pretty frightened.

She claims all this could have been avoided if delivery guy had just left the package at the end of the driveway.


Personally, I think she's a moron.

Because those dogs tend to be owned by morons with little man complexes. Sorry, but 90% of the time it's true.

Oh and I'm the one that brough up mastiffs and all these other dangerous breeds as well as stats on bite force. Btw- any of those bites would be enough to break bones and do permanent damage. A pure bred pit bull has an incredible bite force for it's size.
I used to live near a park and there was a guy who was there everyday with his pit mix. The man would pull a tree branch down to the dog's level, the pit mix would jump up and then proceed to hang from the branch, six feet off the ground, having the time of it's life. I timed the dog once, it hung there for 20 minutes.

I would not want that dog clamped down on my leg.

That guy was probably training that dog for dog fighting. Horrid.

Well...I pulled it outta my butt. I still stand by what I said. It's always a certain type of guy who wants to own those scary breeds of dogs.

OTOH, there is an elderly biker dude in my town who carries around a little Chihuahua with a pink rhinestone collar. So cute, but I would never try to pet that little beast, either. I have been bitten three times by dogs. Once was poodle and the other two times were Chihuahuas

I wonder what the owners of the dogs would have thought if the deliveryman had used a stand your ground defense and just shot the dogs dead.

Oh and the driver is not fine. He might get fired and/or arrested. And the reporting was so bad we don't even know if he got injured.
Yeah, I got a ton of rep points from this thread too, and...

Just googled the story and CD is the first link, a local tv station the second link, and the local tv station's facebook page the third link, then unrated links. Where exactly did this story make national news (CD is not a national news outlet by the way, but since you think a Mastiff and any other scary big dog is a pit bull, I figured I better clarify)?

Given the commoness of dog bites/dog problems for delivery people, the company would under normal circumstances be on the drivers side, as would the union. If the guy is potentially being fired and/or charged with criminal activity, I am going to bet that there is a lot more behind this story than is reported, and it has nothing to do with aggressive dogs!

yes... and that certain type of guy (or gal, for that matter) is EXACTLY what is wrong with the pit bull... they don't raise and socialize them properly... they are aggressive and abusive towards the dogs so that the dogs become aggressive and abusive back, etc. etc. all in the name of toughness....

and over the years, I have worked with HUNDREDS of dogs... transporting them THOUSANDS of miles and the only bite I have ever received was from a poodle... although a chihuahua came mighty close one time.....

I have handled many many many pitbulls and not a one of them has given me the slightest problem......
