Stupid Pit Bull Owner Get's What They Deserve

Pit bull attacks S.F. police horse
Cop, dog, pet owner hurt in Golden Gate Park


Demian Bulwa, Chronicle Staff Writer

Monday, November 24, 2003

A pit bull was shot, a cop and a dog walker were rushed to the hospital, and a police horse named "AAA Andy" was badly hurt but alive -- all this after a chance encounter between two animals on a crisp Sunday at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

The chaos started at 12:50 p.m. as a young woman walked her black pit bull through the park near the Conservatory of Flowers. According to San Francisco police, she made an illegal and costly decision: She let the dog off its leash.

Witnessing the move was police Sgt. David Herrera of the department's mounted unit. He shouted at the woman, ordering her to re-leash her canine, said Sgt. Neville Gittens, a department spokesman.

That's when the dog turned its attention to Herrera's steed.

The pit bull charged AAA Andy, ripping at the horse's flesh on its back legs and its rib cage, Gittens said. The dog's owner, whose name was not released, tried to intervene. That's when things got really bad.

With the dog snapping away, AAA Andy threw Herrera to the ground. At about the same time, the dog's owner attempted to pull her pet away from the horse. But when she got close, AAA Andy kicked her in the face with a hind leg,

Gittens said.

She went down, joining Herrera.

"Then the horse takes off running," Gittens said.

AAA Andy galloped through the park along John F. Kennedy Drive, with the pit bull close behind.

About a half-mile away, near the Eighth Avenue/Fulton Street entrance to the park, another police sergeant got involved. Sgt. Peter Dacre of San Francisco's Richmond Station had heard Herrera's radio calls for help.

Seeing a park gardener and another citizen approaching the riderless AAA Andy, the uniformed Dacre climbed out of his car to help settle down the jumpy horse.

"Then somebody shouted, 'That buggering dog is coming back!' " Dacre said.

"The dog started having another go at the horse. I was between the horse and the dog, and I tried to kick (the dog)."

It was no use. Dacre said he unholstered his .40-calibre semiautomatic Beretta pistol and ended the attack with two shots -- one of which struck the pit bull and sent it scurrying into nearby bushes.

Both Herrera and the dog owner were rushed to St. Mary's Medical Center. Herrera went home in a few hours with back and neck injuries. The woman was treated for head injuries and a broken finger, Gittens said.

Meanwhile, the dog survived the bullet wound and was picked up by Animal Care and Control. Its condition was unknown Sunday night.

AAA Andy was being treated for puncture wounds late Sunday at the police stables in Golden Gate Park.

Herrera, reached at home Sunday night, declined comment.

Police will review the dog's history to see if it has ever been involved in other attacks. Then police will decide whether to cite or charge the dog's owner, Dacre said.

"I think this just goes to the basic unpredictability of certain breeds of dogs," he said. "The dog was frenzied. The whole thing lasted about 45 seconds.''

This is so typical of pit bull owners. They can be very irresponsible and just simply do not undterstand what there animal is capable of.
This is why they should be banned as pets.
I hope the city throws the book at this fool. She should buy the City of San Francisco a new horse and pay the maximum fine including jail time for this. This is no different than letting a retard run through the park with a semi-automatic weapon.

Well, I know many dog owners who would let the pet off the leash. But few breeds that would susequently attack a horse.

And that's why this breed should be banned. Bimbos like this and guys with little dicks have ruined the previlage to own these pets.
The good qualities of pit bulls can be found in other breeds.

I live near this park and I see lots of little children/toddlers learning to walk in this park. I've seen them attack cyclists, joggers and skaters.

These aren't cocker spaniels and collies we're talking about here.

Knowing people in the USA, that lady will sue the cop for hurting her dog. Trust me, I know it will happen.

Should have killed the dog and the lady.

The problem is certainly not the pit bulls´ capacity of being nice to everyone, it´s not even so much their capacity to hurt people (other dogs can and do that, too), it´s the question if they were deliberately bred to have their inhibitions lowered for crossing over from the former to the latter...

And as far as I know, that´s the case.  Sad

Almost all pit bulls bought here are chosen for it's violent temperment. You have a lot of thugs/gangsters that buy these dogs for fighting or to carryout violent acts. They have litters and a lot of extra pit bulls on the market so you have these bleeding heart animal lovers that get them thinking they can 'tame' these mean dogs.
I am sure this stupid lady thaught that her pit bull 'isn't like the other pit bulls'.  Yeah sure

Yeah, it´s pretty similar over here... Pit bulls are often kept by pimps and criminals for use as intimidation tools and for those perverse dog fights.

That´s why breeding them has been outlawed and the existing dogs are under much stricter regulation (together with a few other breeds).

It´s not perfect, but it´s a start.

In Germany they have a very famous pimp named SuperFranz.

Now what about the "retard with a gun" comment?

(Prostitution itself is legal; Pimping is still a different matter, as far as I know, although it may get "cleaned up" legally in the future...)

Baby dies after being mauled by grandma's dog

Sunday, April 4, 2004

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A 16-month-old boy died Saturday after being mauled by his grandmother's pit bull while visiting her home on Detroit's west side, police said.
The boy's mother brought the boy to the home for a visit with her 54-year-old mother, Detroit Police Officer Glen Woods said.

The grandmother was washing dishes and apparently placed the child on the floor to play with the dog, Woods said. The dog mauled the child, Woods said, and bit off one of the grandmother's fingers as she tried to stop the attack.

The grandmother was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Woods said the case would be turned over to prosecutors to determine whether charges will be brought.


The dog was taken to animal control.

In Miami-Dade County all Pitbull owners must have each of there dogs bonded for $2000 dollers, and are personaly liabal for any damage caused by their Pitbull.

Any attack by a non-bonded Pitbull, the owner is subject to 3 years of prision and/or $10,000 fine.

Have you personally ever been around a pit bull? I'm sitting here with my 10 year old Pit right next to me. She is absolutely the sweetest, most even tempered dog I have ever been around in my life. Honest to God.

The hysteria about pit bulls is as ridiculous. Yes, there have been cases where pits have mauled and killed people, but it is not behavior consistent with every dog. It is the exception rather than the rule. Generalizing pits as mean and destructive is as "racist" as saying black males are criminals.

My dog has never hurt a soul, and that includes humans and other animals. She recently was attacked by a Greyhound and did nothing but run away. Ended up with teethmarks in her side.

Nice try but you failed to convence me on that one. We are talking about a particular breed of dog that some people select becasue of it's violent temperment.

Superfly said, We are talking about a particular breed of dog that some people select becasue of it's (SIC) violent temperment (SIC) .

Actually, you are incorrect. Pit Bull terriers do not inherently have a violent temperament.

The reason idiots choose these dogs to be "bad ass dogs" is because this breed of dog is extremely intelligent and has an inherent need to please -- thus making him easily TRAINABLE to become violent -- and is also blessed with an extremely muscular build, which gives him the capabilities.

Therefore, if you don't train a dog to be mean, he won't be. Same with children. Your contention that the breed has an inherent violent disposition is disproved by the fact that Pit Bull terriers were, at one time, as accepted as good family pets as other dog breeds (such as poodles). You might remember Petey on "The Little Rascals" show - Petey was a Pit Bull. The breed has not changed, it's the owners that have changed. Suggesting breed-specific legislation for this breed is the same as human racism. Would you want people making assumptions about you based on generalizations?

767Lover:Can you even try to state your case without dragging humans and race in to the argument?So what if it was the dog in The Little Rascals! So what if it was popular amoung families in the 1920s! Alcohal was illegal in the 1920s too.  InsaneThe differences between a Pit Bull and a Poddle is much different than the difference between a White person and a Black person.Seriously is this the best you can do? As you already outlined, they have a muscular build and that's why little d!ck a$$holes buy these dogs.Too many Pit Bull owners have abused these animals and I think something has to be done about it.

Superfly,

I completely agree with you that something needs to be done about the OWNERS of these dogs. It is all kinds of wrong to train dogs to be violent and aggressive. However, please don't generalize about the breed itself. You don't have enough information to do so, and what you read in the sensationalist media doesn't count. (Half the time, it's not even a pit bull that's involved, but some other mixed breed.)

And yes, my comparing this to race IS relevant. It is about categorically making a generalization based on a few horrible incidents. The only reason you are taking jabs like "is that the best you can do" is because you are ashamed to admit that you are being narrow minded and biased.
