2 PIT BULL DOGS +1-66 Year Old Woman +1 Assisting Neighbor = 1 Killing + 1 Human on Life Support +2 Dead Dogs!

From the Getty File

Pit Bull Terriers are KILLERS! They are hard wired TO KILL from generations of breeding TO KILL. Pit Bulls kill other animals and pets and they kill people. 

Staggering numbers of children and adult humans are killed each year in The U.S. by Pit Bull Dogs. Still, there are few regulations across this country to control what amounts to 'canine death squads' among us. (It is not unusual for Pits to kill in packs and it's not unusual for owners to have more than one Pit Bull dog.)

(We have several articles on this blog presenting statistics and the nature Pitt Bull attacks. See our article, "PIT BULL TERRIERS---Bred to Kill.......", dated July 23, 2010, for statistical information.)  

It is remarkable that in the face of incontrovertible evidence some 'rights activists' maintain, "it's the 'owner', not the breed". And some have written telling us so. And then some can't write anymore because their dogs have attacked them.

From the Getty File
The  evidence shows that even the most responsible Pit Bull owners have been bewildered and 'dumbstruck' when their 'precious-pit' unpredictably attacks and sometimes kill their prey. Sometimes, it's been the owners themselves who have been attacked and/or killed.   

The most recent 'Pit Bull to Human' killing comes from South Carolina.   

On Thursday, Sirlinda Hayes, 66, was working in her yard tending her collard greens and turnips as she did on a daily basis. Within moments she was dead. Attacked and mauled to death by a neighbors 2 pit bull dogs. A neighbor who saw the attack ran to her aid, and he was also attacked and is now in a hospital with life threatening injuries.

When first responders arrived, the pits would not allow them near the victims. Accordingly, the pits were shot and killed.

Odom Hayes, a nephew of Sirlinda, today said, "...never had no trouble before......just one of them things meant to be. She's in a better place.....".

With all due respect to Odom and the surviving members of  the Hayes family, Sirlinda need not be in 'that better place' at all. If those 'PIT' bulls were not there, Sirlinda would still be here.

In the last 4 months, South Carolina has reported at least 3 'Pit-to-Human' killings. 

In November 2010, a 25-year old man was killed by his 'pet' pit. A few months earlier a 10-year old boy was literally decapitated by 6 pits and pit mixes. 

Last month a 9-year old girl was chewed to death by a pit bull. And just on Thursday, February 10, a 3-year old girl remains in a South Carolina hospital after almost having her head taken off by a Pit Bull Dog!    

So what can be done in South Carolina to ameliorate Pit Bull attacks and killings?  A lot. What will be done? Probably nothing.


There a numbers of things that can be done in more intelligent parts of the country, however. Laws can be promulgated on the State, and local levels, to regulate Pit Bulls care and ownership.


Cities, counties and States can make local law banning these creatures in within their geographical limits. Some municipalities in Colorado have. In fact, Colorado has been a leader in the country in regulating pit bulls and other identified vicious breeds. 

This kind of human death does not have to happen. Why is it happening?

  1. This post is very ignorant. Tragic as these fatalities are, the problem lies within the people that breed pit bulls to be fighters, not within the dogs themselves. Just because one dog is bred in a cruel environment and is taught to be a fighter doesn't meant that its offspring will show aggressive tendencies. Imposing harsher punishments on abusive and negligent owners would be much more beneficial than banning the dogs altogether.

  2. Ignorance is owning one of these killer dogs. Pit Bulls are hard wired to kill. It's their nature. The evidence is incontrovertible. Some idiots pick up rattle snakes and don't get bitten. Some are bitten because that's what rattle snakes do.

    You know what, who ever is seriously following this jack ass should really just stop. HELLO have you even met one pit bull. They aren't bad dogs, there is no such thing as bad dogs, JUST BAD OWNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go see one in the shelter and tell me what you think before even remotely thinging bad about these dogs. These dogs are bred to be like this, and your just catching them on their bad side. Suck it up and write a good review because this blog CAN NOT go on for much longer. I am the first of many babe. :)

  8. Are all of you really that stupid? I mean seriously. These dogs have and continue to maim and kill people. I have had ONLY bad experiences MANY times with pitbulls that were out because there owners didnt know or let them out to use the bathroom. The number of people killed is haunting. I met a sweet little pitbull once too. It came under the fence into my backyard with my children. It was a puppy. The neighbors neglected it, even yelled at it. They had had a larger pitbull previously but said that it had tried bite the lady of the house, so they gave it away. Why are the rights of dogowners being considered over the rights of human beings to live? I dont get it. Its an ANIMAL people. These are PEOPLE. Ive had it with this garbage. I am joining the ban the pit movement and promise to do all that I can to help get rid of these dogs. Sorry, I value human life over the lives of animals.

  9. The real reason that the bulk of these fatal attacks are from pit bulls is not genetic. It is because it has become stylish to have a pit trained to be aggressive . This training can be done with ANY dog of ANY breed. If you train a tea cup maltese by these methods IT WILL ATTACK PEOPLE! I have raised many " dangerous breeds" such as German Shepherds, Rotweilers , a Chow Chow ( their reputation as remorseless killers is legend ) however mine fostered a litter of kittens. How is it that I go to the homes of 3 different friends who are pit owners and am greeted with wagging tails and happy dispositions and when I go into a small city near my home I pass a "gangsta' wannabe" walking a pit that wants to take my leg off? IT'S HOW THE DOG IS TRAINED PEOPLE!!!! If a drunk driver kills a person you people want to crush his car. the fact is a dog owner is at least as responsible as a driver in controlling his/her property. Even if were possible to exterminate a breed the " tough guys" would just corrupt another.

  10. In Leeds UK pitbulls are currently banned and put to sleep if found by the police, you must have a license to own a pitbull in the UK. The pitbull has now been replaced with the Staffordshire bull terrier dog and I do not believe that dogs are bred to be dangerous as I myself own a Staffordshire bull terrier and with also meeting pitbulls owned illegally I can honestly say I have never seen the aggressive and dangerous personality you have portrayed them as in this post. Having read a number of dog phychology books I have a good knowledge on the way a dog thinks and the reasons why they may behave in an aggressive or defensive manner. Watch The Dog whisper and then look back on your opinion, maybe it might change your perspective on 'dangerous dogs'.

    1. Thanks for your contribution Chelsea. I'm always open to change when the evidence changes. The fact is that pits are sweet animals until they aren't anymore. There's too much evidence out there from people who've been caught by surprise when their pet pit has turned vicious on them for no apparent reason.
