Piranhas + Pitbull = Winning combination when you have toddlers. Sounds like a classy family.

Done in one!

What sort of child rearing involves pets that can eat small children?
 
2012-06-23 06:13:10 AM
But it's piranhas.

Did I do it right?

FTFA

At first, the woman says she assumed the family pit bull had bitten the girl.

Who the hell has a pitbull that may bite and piranhas for pets other than ass cantaloupes because gosh, those are great choices for your kids? Who?

Pit bulls are not necessarily dangerous. Un-neutered male dogs of any breed need watching out for.

Piranha, however can not be trained to sit and fetch.

Look, the "woman" immediately suspected the pit bull did it. Anyone's love and/or respect for pit bulls aside, you all know this dog can do some damage. Why even take that chance if you have one that is potentially going to harm your child? It makes no sense.

right, but the presence of a pirhana in this house suggests that these might be the sort of people who also keep a pit bull for the wrong reasons. or maybe they just keep their valuables in the bottom of the fish tank.

I completely agree with the both of yous. But, bad dog owners, not bad dogs. Used to be Dobermans, and Rottweilers for a while, now pit bulls.

Right. And both Rots and Dobies are also bad to have around your kids if you think they might harm them. And by "think", I mean a normally lucid individual or couple who knows the animal they so dearly love just like a member of the family, may actually hurt someone under the right circumstances. Don't care if they are predisposed to do it or provoked- you (in this case) have a child. This animal may hurt your child. If you keep it around, you are basically saying you love your dog as much as you love your kid. Hell, maybe more since you know it can hurt him/her. It makes no sense. It's a dog. And the piranha thing? Well that's a special kind of stupid.

I used to have red-bellied piranhas when I was in my early 20s - 5 or 6 of them. They make lousy pets. They're very jumpy, and fight constantly, so there is always fin damage on some of them, 100% of the time. I never hesitated to put my hands in their to work in the tank because they would always immediately crash into a corner and stay there until I was done (although I did keep an eye on them while I was working for any surprise attacks).

I would not, however, ever just put my fingers in the top of the tank. Their M.O. is to swarm in little bunches until one brave fish lunges out when whatever their victim is not looking, and takes a quick snap; at which point they all swarm on it. Just dangling a finger in their is asking for it and probably what the baby did.

Eventually the novelty of having clouds of goldfish scales fill the tank every few days wore off and I got some nice malawi chichlids instead.

At least they knew it wasn't their Black Widow spider. And the crocodile they keep in their pool would have done much more damage.

Who the fark keeps piranha as pets? Unless you have a secretary who was leaking your secret plans to take over the world to MI6, you don't need to have piranha in the house.

Pretty much my experience exactly. I briefly had a snakehead, too, but that damn thing got too big and too scary. Then I discovered oscars, which have MUCH more personality, and will actually take food from your hand.

/Eventually settled on planted community tanks and reef tanks. They were absolutely gorgeous and a hell of a lot more interesting to look at.

We have a Pit bull mix (mostly pit) and we recently added a puppy to the family. She is now 9 weeks old and likes to chew on his face and he doesn't do a THING to her (he play-growls and makes as if he bites her, but he hasn't hurt her ONCE) so i don't buy a WORD of this "Pit Bulls are a menace and need to be killed, every one" BS people are spouting these days. It's not the dog, it's how he is raised that matters.

Why would it be either? It is not uncommon for a dog to react poorly to change in pack dynamics when a new child comes along. If a dog is capable of great damage (like a pit or a rott), it makes absolute sense to take steps, up to and including finding a new home for the dog, if necessary.

Tattoos are pretty common now. Everybody got them to try and be unique and now they all look the same.

I'm thinking we have some pierced folks here. Not the nose ring and nipple ring variety, but the "you can hang me on a wall by the ring on my back" type.

Well let's face it, if want to get rid of your child, buying the right pet is the way to go. It's a hell of a lot easier than trying to fake SIDS.

The thing about pits is that they were bred to be gentle with who they view as their owners, but they wanted them to be aggressive otherwise. That doesn't make them bad, it's just how they are. People shouldn't own them if they don't understand how they work.

Personally I think they're a bit too unpredictable, most dogs will give a warning if they're going to bite, with pit bulls it's like a switch gets flipped and they go into attack mode, and it might not even be because they're angry or afraid.

Because virtually any animal, let alone any large dog, "may actually hurt someone under the right circumstances." This is not a sensible reason not to "keep it around."

(Hell, if some owner *doesn't* think his animal could ever hurt anyone under any circumstances, that would seem a better reason to find a new home for it. Bit of a catch-22 there...)
