Or was it their family dog? Dunno, confusing article.

Already said that the child was unsupervised and entered property to find a dog that was caged..But dog is at fault...and no child neglect were pressed... America justice for all right???? Think that's how it goes...punish the people at fault not the dog...owner is responsible for the dog as for the babysitter is responsible for the child..someone had responsibility and somebody didnt... Dog wasn't free roaming...yes it is still sad...but hold the right party accountable

Bottom line is, humans are more important than animals. We contribute more to society and if there is an animal that is endangering our species. It will be eliminated. This is coming from a dog lover... but grow a pair and man up..


PETA you mad?

No, they aren't. Earth would get along just fine without people on it. People are a deadly virus that infects the planet.

There have been 11 child deaths by dog so far that I know of in 2014 and 4 adult fatalities: Out of the 11 child deaths, 6 were pit bull, 3 bull mastiffs, and 1 Rotweiller, and 1 Shepherd/Lab mix.

The adults were 2 pit bull, 1 mastiff mix, and 3 Rotts (pack attack)

In 2013 there were 32 fatalities by dog bite, Pit bulls consisted of 78% of those fatal attacks.
From 2005 to 2013 Pit bulls killed 176 victims, while Rottweilers came in second with 33.

So there seems to be a correlation between deaths and Pit Bulls. Pit Bulls only make up 6% of the US dog population, but do the most damage by far.

I'm not saying that they're a danger to society or anything like that, I have owned them and found mine to be wonderful pets, but being the father of four children, I certainly wouldn't let my children play with a Pit in a park if we happened to cross another Pit owner's path.

At some point we need to wonder why there's such a large number of these seemingly harmless pets doing nearly 80% of the harm..
Most people wouldn't recognize a pitbull if it bit them in the buttocks. Pit statistics mean less than nothing.

kid wanders somewhere he doesn't belong...Dog is defending territory like he/she is supposed to.

Leave the dog alone. The kid needs to learn respect for other peoples property.

I would look on our species as more of a cancer that just keeps multiplying mindlessly (which cancer does and people most certainly do) and has no goal other than to shove all other forms of life off the planet to make room for MOAR people.
