Good grief. Talk about killer instinct.

In some western US states, livestock ranchers have absolute right to shoot an unknown dog on theirRead More land. Dog owners in those states are aware and make sure their pets don't get away. If they do and don't come home, the dog owners can presume the worse.

Dogs are predators, they may be nice and cuddly with their owners but aggressive and vicious toRead More strangers. Hey, that's why a huge number of people buy dogs, for protection from burglars, home invaders and other bad guys. I can say as a bicyclist that dogs are a menace because their owners do not keep them secured on their own property. I have dogs chasing after me on public streets. So the dog lovers will say it's my fault for riding a bike on a public road.

Star dot star the teeth marks of a pitbull are no different than any other breed. That comment justRead More shows how ignorant people are who try and knock a breed they know nothing about and have no real experience with and don't even know about dogs in general. Thanks for the laugh

Hey John I think it's time you should just stop posting and shut your mouth . Everything you say inRead More my opinion are words of an old school, uneducated , backwoods NH hick. You are offensive and what you say shows your lack of knowledge. I have pitbulls and I would never imagine them fighting! I don't even want them playing rough with their toys. I also am a female and don't need a dog as a show piece or any other purpose than companionship. My dogs are like my children children and you are talking s%$@ about my kids and can't even support your opinions with facts and get your message across in a civil manner .

the war on women is republicans trying to force women into involuntary servitude. I have flaggedRead More this vile propaganda. And will continue to follow up with patch to pull this idiotic post off here.
Gretchen Robinson April 16, 2014 at 11:07 pm
GOP, so stupid and tone deaf about how to reach young women (to brainwash them....to late DuckRead More Dynasty guys). So they went through Mitt's "Binders of Women" and found Phyllis Schlaffly who pitched her propaganda about how all women secretly want to marry men so they wouldn't have to work and could stay home and breed. Get this claptrap off PATCH.
joseph esposito April 16, 2014 at 11:23 pm
wo=MEN can be brainwashed? Oh? How credible are wo=MEN as voters, if they can be brainwashed? You'reRead More right about Phyllis Schlaffly's propaganda about how wo=MEN, secretly want to marry MEN so they won't have to work and can stay home and breed. Now wo=MEN secretly want to marry MEN so they can divorce them and take all their money, and yes still breed, and on the MANS paycheck!

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.

Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.
