Right next to the derps who assume that all pitbulls will do this.

True. Pits won't just stop after a warning nip. They'll eat your ass.

That is such bullshiat.

He heard it on the internet, so it must be true.


That is bullshiat. Pibulls do not eat your ass. Pitbulls will mainly eat your arms, from your shoulder to your wrist, while you go into shock from blood loss and trauma.

Midwest990: I'm all for adopting dogs but it's about the same as going to pick up a chick from the woman's battered shelter. Sure they all seem nice and like they're good and just had it rough before. But take them home and you'll realize they're a lot of work because some one before you really worked them over and now they are seriously emotionally damaged and that the beatings they got were probably deserved.

"Do the rules change when the media becomes the story?" You Betcha....

Actually other local news outlets should have sped over in their news vans and jumped out and shoved microphones in her face as she was trying to get medical treatment. Blocking ambulance staff.

Asking loud questions like:
"did it hurt?"
"do you hate dogs now?"
"did the bite feel all slobbery?"
"are you upset?"
"knowing a vicious animal was on set, why weren't you wearing a helmet?"

Grables'Daughter:

I will absolutely agree that "double standard" might be part of the definition of "professional courtesy", but that's just the way it is.

I think just about any profession has it.

I know mine does.


Attention whoring has professional courtesy?

A Mastiff is a war dog breed. Loyal to their owners, but not so much to strangers.

Oznog: Need_MindBleach: hydroplane: Where are all the pitbull avocates with their excuses for peoples faces getting chewed off?

Argentinian Mastiffs ain't pitbulls. They're mastiffs, which, you know, you might guess from the name.

I am always frustrated by the persistence of breed-specific bans by people who don't understand breeds. There's like 30 breeds people OFTEN think the recognize as "pitbulls", varying from Dogo Argentino, Presa Canario, Boxers, sometimes WTF-ness of calling a Japanese Akita a "pitbull"...


Pitbulls were bred for dog fighting. Mastiffs were bred for war. There is a whole range of dog breeds that were not created for cuddling as pets. Animals for guarding, hunting, and fighting will always have certain tendencies, but it IS a shame to lump them together... a breed for dog fighting is more "random" in its viciousness, while a "war dog" or "guard dog" tends to be far more loyal to an owner (without the pre-requisite "alpha male" conditioning pitbull owners tend to need).

It was very stupid of the reporter to get that close (with her face) to a mastiff that is not familiar with her, and it's attack should not have come as a surprise at all. We humans also tend to forget that smiling is NOT a universal sign of happiness - that is UNIQUE to humans; carnivores baring teeth to other carnivores is a threat.

Of course, all dogs are capable of displaying great affection for some humans, with the right upbringing, but you can never change their basic nature. Understanding the breed and choosing a breed for its specific qualities is being a responsible dog owner. Sadly, too many people choose pitbulls because they are "cool", then rationalize how sweet they've always been around their 3 year old (until it took a chunk out of the kid's forearm, at least)

Rik01: Believe it or not, there WAS a time when journalists would NOT report everything.

You'll find examples of it through WW1 and WW2, especially with presidents. The news treated FDR with respect due to his polio and the treated JFK with equal respect concerning his inability to keep it in his pants.

Then along came the National Inquirerthe Vietnam War, then Nixon and Watergate, and everything went to hell.


There, that's better.

No, that's what retards believe us normal people think. But in truth, we're perfectly capable of realizing that people who choose to watch or work for Fox News are worthless, amoral dogshiat all on their own. They tend to band together so they can stink up everything.

So fark you, dogshiat retard. Now go fark your brother some more, he's lonely.

I knew I'd get this reaction but I was surprised you bit so quick.

kab:

Personal experience, actually. Lived in a neighborhood with some avid pig hunters. I hate pits and rotties.

MadAzza: Well, OK, what if they sewed part of the upper to part of the lower, loosely, so that the injured part wouldn't move too much? Sort of like a "lip sling"? Like, if the injury was in the corner of her mouth, which is what it sounds like, with "half her lip" being bitten off. That might work. Hmm.


Must be about this. I'd guess sewing the mouth shut would cause more strain to the injury, since they'd have to wire her mouth shut if they didn't want her relaxing her jaw and pulling stitches out.

That or she's been wanting to eat brains and they sewed her mouth shut as a prophylactic.

And they SURELY did NOT "sew her lips together". Come on. You would sew A lip back together, sewing both together would make no sense.


I'm guessing they sewed part of the upper lip to part of the bottom lip, to ... Wait, that doesn't make sense either. I dunno.

A dog bit someone. I don't see why it is news. I also don't see why its being/not being news is news.

If you shove your face into a large dog's mouth you may get injured. More at 11.

Four dog breeds are illegal to own in the UK without an exemption from the court. This is one of them.

I'm all for adopting dogs but it's about the same as going to pick up a chick from the woman's battered shelter. Sure they all seem nice and like they're good and just had it rough before. But take them home and you'll realize they're a lot of work because some one before you really worked them over and now they are seriously emotionally damaged.

I'd rather every dog owner be micro chipped along with their pet. When it shows up in a shelter, they get the bill for how ever long the animal stayed there.

fark 9news. I'm glad that Fox covered it.

1) The way that they've been acting you'd think she took a mortar to the head. She had a little rip in her lip- not life threatening.

2) Also, The stupid dog police were only holding the dog because it was a high profile case, and they admitted it. Most dogs who are quarantined get out early, but due to the stink they made, that dog got punished for ten days. The dog was clearly not a threat- it was saying 'get lost' not 'I'm gonna fark you up.'

3) I put something up on facebook that said 'I hope you get good Doctors, Kyle' and they took it down, because everyone else kept sending prayers.

4) I only watch in the hope that there will be a wardrobe malfunction on Amelia Erhardt.
