Pit Bulls should not be allowed in residential neighborhoods because their innate violent nature is unpredictable.
This woman walked her pitbulls in the community and the dogs attacked and nearly ripped a cat apart.
The alleged owner says the cat survived, though likely severely wounded.
Warning: very violent video.
Quote by the cat owner (alleged) at the YouTube post titled “The reality of pitbulls”
MY CAT WAS MAULED BY TWO PIT BULLS YESTERDAY (JULY 1, 2017) WHILE MINDING HIS OWN BUSINESS IN MY DRIVEWAY. THE OWNER HAD NO BUSINESS WALKING THEM, AS SHE COULD NOT CONTROL THEM IN THE LEAST BIT.
MY CAT IS ALIVE AS OF NOW BAD SEVERELY INJURED. EVEN THE BEST PIT BULLS ARE UNPREDICTABLE AT BEST.
The cat owner’s response to a comment on the video
SHE (WOMAN WITH DOGS) STUCK AROUND FOR A MINUTE. I CAME RUNNING OUT SHORTLY AFTER THE END OF THIS VIDEO AND GOT THE DOGS OFF MY CAT. I DON’T PLAN TO SUE THE LADY, ALTHOUGH I’M SURE I COULD.
MY CAT SURVIVED AND IS DOING WELL CONSIDERING. SHE DID OFFER TO PAY THE VET BILLS. I MAINLY POSTED THIS VIDEO AS A WARNING TO OTHERS ABOUT HOW UNPREDICTABLE THESE DOGS CAN BE.
PLEASE HELP SHARE THE VIDEO SO OTHERS CAN SEE JUST HOW FAST SOMETHING LIKE THIS CAN HAPPEN. THANKS ALL.
A similar case in California in 2015 caused a massive neighborhood uproar when a man couldn’t hold his pits back as they attacked and killed a cat in someone’s yard.
Though some will argue that pitbulls are gentle “if” trained properly, their purpose when developed BY MAN was to be a source of violence, and that beast dwells within them and could be triggered by an unknown factor.
There are cases where the pitbull has turned on its master, but their targets are generally small animals, and kids appear to a pitbull as a small animal.
The website called BanPitbulls.org states;
THE AVERAGE PIT BULL ATTACK LASTS 15 MINUTES, AND HUNDREDS OF DOCUMENTED ATTACKS SHOW THAT STICKS, CHAIRS, STEERING WHEEL CLUBS AND TASERS ARE RARELY SUFFICIENT TO STOP AN ATTACK ONCE IT STARTS.
HOSPITAL STUDY FOUND THAT ATTACKS BY PIT BULLS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH HIGHER MORBIDITY RATES, HIGHER HOSPITAL CHARGES, AND A HIGHER RISK OF DEATH THAN ARE ATTACKS BY OTHER BREEDS OF DOGS.
A TEXAS STUDY PUBLISHED FOUND A LARGE PROPORTION OF DOG-BITE INJURIES TREATED AT A MAJOR TRAUMA CENTRE WERE INFLICTED BY PIT BULLS, AND THAT THOSE ATTACKS WERE MORE LIKELY TO CAUSE DEATH, SEVERE INJURIES, HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS AND HIGHER HOSPITAL BILLS.
In 2015 A five-year old boy, James Nevils of Chicago, died after being mauled by a pit bull, even as people beat the dog to death while trying to stop the attack.
The child was inside a property in Gresham, Chicago, on the night of Monday May 25 2015 when the animal grabbed him by the neck and shoulder as he sat playing.
Witnesses heard someone screaming: ‘He’s my baby, somebody please help me,’ as a woman dragged the child and the animal outside in a bid to get help.
In January 2017, a vicious pitbull attack in Atlanta left one child dead and another severely injured.
The countless fatal pitbull attacks on children has spawned numerous social media pages and websites which campaign against pitbulls in residential areas.
One Facebook page called Protect Children From Pit Bulls And Other Dangerous Dogs shows a list of kids that were slaughtered or maimed by pitbull attacks, and website called FatalPitBullAttacks.com shows a long list dating from 1833.
The Pitbull History (wikipedia)
PIT BULLS WERE CREATED BY BREEDING BULLDOGS AND TERRIERS TOGETHER TO PRODUCE A DOG THAT COMBINED THE GAMENESS AND AGILITY OF THE TERRIER WITH THE STRENGTH OF THE BULLDOG.
IN THE UNITED KINGDOM, THESE DOGS WERE USED IN BLOOD SPORTS SUCH AS BULL-BAITING AND BEAR-BAITING. THESE BLOOD SPORTS WERE OFFICIALLY ELIMINATED IN 1835 AS BRITAIN BEGAN TO INTRODUCE ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS.
SINCE DOGFIGHTS WERE CHEAPER TO ORGANIZE AND FAR EASIER TO CONCEAL FROM THE LAW THAN BULL OR BEAR BAITS, BLOOD SPORT PROPONENTS TURNED TO PITTING THEIR DOGS AGAINST EACH OTHER INSTEAD.
DOG FIGHTING WAS USED AS BOTH A BLOOD SPORT (OFTEN INVOLVING GAMBLING) AND A WAY TO CONTINUE TO TEST THE QUALITY OF THEIR STOCK. FOR DECADES AFTERWARDS, DOG FIGHTING CLANDESTINELY TOOK PLACE IN SMALL AREAS OF BRITAIN AND AMERICA.
IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY PIT BULLS WERE USED AS CATCH DOGS IN AMERICA FOR SEMI-WILD CATTLE AND HOGS, TO HUNT, AND DRIVE LIVESTOCK, AND AS FAMILY COMPANIONS. SOME HAVE BEEN SELECTIVELY BRED FOR THEIR FIGHTING PROWESS.
Insurance restrictions on violent dogs;
THE DOG BREEDS MOST OFTEN TARGETED BY INSURANCE COMPANIES INCLUDE PIT BULL-TYPE DOGS, ROTTWEILERS, GERMAN SHEPHERD DOGS, DOBERMAN PINSCHERS, AKITAS (AKITA INU AND AMERICAN AKITA), AND CHOWS.
IN 2013, FARMERS INSURANCE NOTIFIED POLICY HOLDERS IN CALIFORNIA THAT “IT WILL NO LONGER COVER BITES BY PIT BULLS, ROTTWEILERS AND WOLF HYBRIDS.
A SPOKESWOMAN FOR FARMERS SAID THOSE BREEDS ACCOUNT FOR MORE THAN A QUARTER OF THE AGENCY’S DOG BITE CLAIMS.
