Oh no, the dog was tied up. He was no threat. And the owner is not at fault because they didn't do anything wrong. The question is ....why was the toddler even there. Sorry, it's the parents fault for not watching their kid.

You can't possibly believe this, can you?

Leaving a dangerous dog unattended in public is utterly moronic and anything bad that happens as a result is entirely your fault.

Kudos to the Commerce City for killing the vicious dog and for arresting the idiotic, meth-head owner.

But the dog was not unattended, the child was. What don't you understand about a dog being tied up and a toddler being left to wonder around without supervision. Oh but now we are talking about the owner and meth. Do you have a link for this. And please tell me how the dog was dangerous. Was he reported biting multiple people or something.

Most people can't do it.
Pit Bulls are not born with aggression no study has ever found that it is something that has been taught to them. Border Collies are not bred to be high energy they are born that way.

The dog was unattended. The child was not (the mother was 5 feet away when this happened).

I watched the local news jailhouse interview of the piece of garbage owner as well as several witnesses. The pitbull's owner mentioned her meth addiction and explained that's why she only weights 79 pounds (11 pounds less than the pitbull she's suppose to be in control of). She didn't really seem to care about the plight of the injured child, but wailed on-and-on about the death of her "child" (the dog) and how she felt she was a victim.

The eyewitnesses said that she left the camp unannounced and tied the dog up to a guard rail without saying a word or asking anyone to watch the dog. Apparently the 19 month old petted the dog and then walked away. As the child was walking away, the dog broke out of its harness, ran at the kid, and ripped his face off.

And she let the kid hug the dog.

What is the fascination with the Pitbull breed?

Why is anyone attracted to a breed that has such a bad and well deserved reputation?

They're bred for what they are and what they are is : nasty.

My neighbor had a Pit and b/c they worked all day long they left him in their fenced in backyard. Dog dug himself out of it and would wander around the neighborhood. The cops were called all the time, didn't do anything. Pitty owner proclaimed that he was "the sweetest dog" in the world.

So one day, her sweetie pie was watching a cat walk around outside her house. Neighbor and dog were on the couch where the back of the couch was shoved up against a picture window. Neighbor decided to tickle the lovely and well-trained-do-no-harm Pitty she has owned for at least 5 years and he bit the right side of her face off.

He wouldn't let go so her husband went in to the kitchen and beat the dog off of his wife's face with a frying pan.

Dog ended up being put down and not because she wanted him to be, she still claimed "not his fault". The PTB took it over.

You have to understand your breed of dog and too many pitty owners don't get it.

Until the fight is bred out of the line, you have an aggressive dog.

Get over it.
Pitbulls attract nuts. This pitbull attack happened 670 feet from where my 6 year old niece lives:

Pit bull attacks woman's motorized scooter in Englewood, kills her tiny dachshund, police say - 7NEWS Denver TheDenverChannel.com

A pitbull got out and was roaming the neighborhood, and it attacked two people and their dog INSIDE a 7-11. Five grown men couldn't stop the pitbull from killing the other dog (than GOD my niece wasn't out playing when this happened).

The lady who was attacked got upset that the pitbull owner wasn't being charged and that the city planned to give the dog back to the owner, so she had a rally/protest at the 7-11 where the attack happened. Several pro-pitbull counter protesters showed up to defend the pitbull. Pure insanity.

We had a dalmatian that was great with kids, I watched a very young nephew step on him accidentally once. Just kind of gave me a look "can you please tell me he's going home soon". LOL

It doesn't matter how many stories like these hit the news or the fact that statistics show pit bulls to be the most dangerous animals in the country. Pit bull lovers will blindly defend them and keep saying that pit bulls are not a violent breed.
