Not surprised at all

Clearly the dog should have been shot on sight for daring to show a brave police officer any aggression.

Let's see... Pit bull prevents police from rescuing lost child. Police abandon child rather than doing the right thing and shooting the dog so they could take him home.

When you're a cop, "The right thing" always includes shooting a dog.

Yay for doggie.

Yay for the officer not shooting the doggie!

Led the kid out into the wilderness and "protected" him? He was just waiting for dinnertime. ;^)

Wheeler said they tracked the boy by following footprints made by his boots in the snow.

I traced his little footprints in the snow
I found his little footprints in the snow...
 
2013-03-01 07:49:00 AM
Mother of the year candidate? So damn stupid she did not think to look for foot prints in the snow... Her kid 1/4 mile away AFTER calling for help, searching and finding him. The little bastard was probably within site when she hit panic mode....

She's probably a  receptionist at the local high school.

Hero cop for NOT shooting the dog AND NOT arresting mother of the year candidate for a stupid mistake.
 
2013-03-01 08:02:06 AM
hope dumbass Mom cooked steak

Cats typically do not interfere in the rescue of a lost child.  Pit bulls, on the other hand, can be complete dicks about it.

Where did it say they abandoned him?

A cat owner would have been more responsible with their human kids.

Ritley: Clearly the dog should have been shot on sight for daring to show a brave police officer any aggression.


If this were LA, the police would have called in the SWAT team and shot both the dog and the kid. Then, claimed that they were in fear of their lives and told the parients to suck-it.
 
2013-03-01 08:17:13 AM
Good thing they found them before the dog got hungry
 
2013-03-01 08:18:48 AM
For once the police didn't rain a hail of bullets down on the dog.

this wouldn't have happened had the parent been watching the child
 
2013-03-01 08:37:18 AM
FTFA: Wheeler had the boy's father come and take the dog home before safety personnel could approach the boy.

Why couldn't the father take the dog and the boy home? And why didn't the mother looker for her child before calling the police? These people are strange.

I had a cat growing up that followed us boys all over the woods. It protected us from dogs on several occasions, including all-out attacks on them. Ever seen a cat ride a pit bull like a cowboy on bucking bronco?

I remember a time when I was fighting another kid, were were wrestling around on the ground, and at some point I yelled out to my cat (who was watching), "help me!", and she came charging in. No bull. That stopped the fight, because both of us were "wtf, that worked" on that on.

She was an awesome cat. Taken out by an owl in her old age.

How could the police have a media event and take all the credit if they allowed the father to bring the boy home?

Which is why the cops should have shot the parents.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who panics when they can't find their kid.  The other day my two year old was babbling on about "hide and seek" or some such nonsense, and when I turned to finish chugging my beer, and then turned back, she was gone!  I had no idea where she was!  I started freaking out (probably partially because of the drugs) and searched everywhere I could without getting off of the couch.  After about 30 seconds of looking, I was distraught and didn't know what else to do, so I called 9-1-1.  When the police and search team got there, they scoured the back yard, and set up a two mile perimeter around the house.  Finally, about five minutes after she first dissapeared, I heard the toilet flush, and realized she just had to go potty.  She seemed ok, but they took her to the hospital just to be sure.

That was like three days ago.  I wonder if her mom ever went and got her.

Meh.

Guess what happens when the 'loyal' dog gets hungry after a few more hours. Scrounged for nuts and berries?

Yes. This. You can see a quarter mile. Was it only a quarter mile?

She could've been a typical mother today and been busy smoking meth or banging the mailman.

You sound angry.

I've never seen an airbrushed pitbull before.
 
2013-03-01 09:32:15 AM
I have to agree that typically the problem with pitbulls is they're owned by the type of people who want pitbulls.
 
2013-03-01 09:40:09 AM
Pitbulls are not necessarily menacing dogs, but my concern is that even good dogs have bad days. My beagle lived for 14 years, and in that time bit me twice (both times my fault, for startling him while he slept) and immediately showed remorse on both occasions. It still hurt. I just wouldn't want to run that risk with a pit bull or other large dog.
 
2013-03-01 09:54:10 AM
You guys are weird. I loved the story. Some kids are runners, and short of locking them up (which is bad, fyi), sometimes they're just off and gone. Sometimes parents are tired, not paying attention, or paranoid.

And still, sometimes everything turns out alright, which is what happened here. I am pleased.

His parents probably don't want to be identified for fear that people will hate on them for letting a 3 year old kid out of their sight long enough that he wandered off.
 
2013-03-01 10:14:41 AM
If I remember correctly, there was a time in Victorian England when pit bulls were very fashionable fur their use as "nanny dogs" due to their protective nature. Glad to see everything worked out ok.

Some cats may lead a toddler away on an adventure like that.

Yes, subby - I'm here for my bonus pit bull?  Where do I pick him up?
 
2013-03-01 11:34:49 AM
I can't look. What did it do? Attack a kid or an old man?  My cat would never attack anybody or thing!
