I'm glad they put that "allegedly" 'in there, because well, I don't know if I believe this. She doesn't even look that scary, unless they left her eyepatch off. Maybe that's really gross.

Might it have something to do with Victoria's Victories Facebook page, which has been documenting the little girl's recovery? And nobody they can sue here either, since it was grandpa's dogs that did it.

I'm inclined to call BS on this as well, except that when my wife worked for an Arby's, they had a family come in who refused to be served by a cashier that had bad acne scarring...they requested the manager and explained, in front of the cashier, that she was too grotesque. The manager shrugged it off, rang them up, and went back to work. After their meal, the same family asked for the manager again, requesting a refund because they could see the same cashier and it ruined their meal. Manager refused and the family ended up complaining to corporate.

So, do I think a mother would lie about what a restaurant did? Yes.
Do I think some people are just that despicable to say and do such things? Yes.

We've had a couple of recent maulings here in Cincy. This past week 3 pit bulls got a hold of a girl and ripped her tongue out. She's so badly hurt she's still a medically induced coma.

http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/crime/2014/06/04/pit-bull-attac k/ 9980569/

News report yesterday said the guys who owned the dogs can only be charged with misdemeanors unless the girl dies. WTF? They're holding them on drugs and weapons charges since they had that in their house.

farking, farking drug dealers. We should line them up with the goddamned pedophiles and have a mass hanging.

This.

Funny how it's never a Labrador, or a Beagle, or a German Sheppard, or a Chow, or any number of other breeds and mixes. Nope, it always seems to be a pit bull or a pit bull mix that suddenly turns and viciously attacks without notice or provocation.

Actually, when you google for the news reports of dog attacks (not websites put up by crazy people, or wikipedia articles dominated by the same people) you see that the distribution is pretty equal among large breeds.  I've done this about five times in threads over the years.  Animals are dangerous.  Cats bite the shiat out of people all the time.


Complete and total bullshiat.  If you want to get some actual facts, consult the CDC

In the 9-year period from 2005 to 2013, pit bulls killed 176 Americans and accounted for 62% of the total recorded deaths (283). Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers accounted for 74% of these deaths.

Loreweaver: It's Me Bender: From an evolutionary point of view, this kind of reaction is a beneficial adaption.

Sorry about your arm, though.

If my arm was caused by a hereditary condition, I might be more understanding of people's reactions. However, like the girl in the article, my disfigurement was from a physical injury. In my case, my injuries were from a car accident, which crushed my arm from the elbow down. Doctors managed to reattach my hand, but I lost my radial forearm bone, my thumb, and half my wrist.


Right, but that's complicated.

Which reaction to a person with a deformity or disease is going to be more strongly selected for, keeping in mind that 99% of human evolution (and 100% of pre-human evolution) occurred in brutal primitive environments where death was a constant part of life:

1. Carefully analyze the deformity to determine the possible cause and probability of danger to you and your tribe.
OR
2. Fear, strong revulsion, and shunning.

Pit bull owners, scroll down and look at all the faces of the dead children. Read the stories of an otherwise nice dog suddenly snapping. See if you notice a trend in the breed of dog column. Keep telling yourself it is the owner and not the dog.

So how long ago did the Kfarkick them out? Because if you look at her pics... her latest it's hard to tell she got bitten. But a few weeks ago her face looked like the KFC should be selling her, not serving her.

Look there's an evolutionary psychology reason why we're scared of freaky-looking people: A mangled face looks a lot like a case of the pox; and even if it's just a wound, the wounds themselves can be infected (realistically, to some degree, always will be until they heal); and lastly people who are in pain are not known for their friendliness and patience, even if they're not contagious.

"She can't help it" is somewhat a valid argument, but it's being taken too far. The dad walking around like an autist, "hey it's not my daughter's fault so I'm sure no one will have a problem" is absurd. She's 3. Responsibility falls to the parents to be her cushion between her and the rest of the world. Figure it out. Think about what will happen when you go places.

In after the pit bull apologists try to reason us into their logic of saying "omg....not only pit bulls attack people". Funny, but i have never heard of a lab mauling a child, or a beagle, although I'm sure it happens from time to time, one must admit that pit bulls seem to exist to ravage the young and elderly. Much like a lion picks out the weak and young in a herd of animals. But just keep having those pit bulls, we all know its a status symbol for you, and makes you feel more like "a man".

poison_amy: I am throwing my name onto the "this didn't happen" board also.  Most people passing by in a restaurant  wouldn't even notice her "disfigurement" and those that did wouldn't be so scared they couldn't move on with their lives and eat their chicken.


You don't know people's base nature...

I've lived with a twisted and disfigured arm all my life. Most strangers just get a little uncomfortable around me when they first spot my disfigured arm, where they instinctively pull back and their whole body becomes visibly stiffer. A few people just completely freak out.

When growing up. I had encounters with other kids' parents who would freak out, convinced that I could infect her children with some horrible disease they imagined I had. When I was a cashier in my college years, there were customers who refused to come into my empty line, or who would immediately back out of the line the moment they saw me.

It does not surprise me at all that some reactionary helicopter parent would freak out at the sight of a disfigured child at the restaurant .

100% this.

I'm sure it was less traumatic than the story makes it out to be, but after working in Disneyland for ten years, I have NO doubt that some asshole decided to go to the manager because "There is an unattractive child in here, my delicate digestion is upset so give me my money back."

Or that the spineless manager immediately went to the mom and said with an apologetic tone in her voice, "Ma'am, I'm sorry, but someone is complaining about your daughter...she's going to have to leave" because the typical corporate response nowadays is to give managers no leeway to say "Grow some balls, nancy and let a child be ugly." No, the default is cave immediately because LAWSUIT!!!

Oh, and if anyone bothered to read TFA, the girl was attacked by her family's own pitbulls who were then shot by her own grandfather. No doubt about either the breed of the dog or the nature of the attack.

There are bad pit bulls. But, I mean, c'mon, even the most devout anti-pitbull type has to admit that they're made bad by bad owners.

When is the last time you read an article involving someone that wasn't complete trash who owned a pit ball that mauled someone unprovoked? Off the top of my head, I remember 1 incident, and it was a burglar that entered a child's room where the dog was laying beside the bed. That guy got torn the hell up while the family got all the kids out then subdued him before the dog was called off. Vicious beast, indeed.

English Staffordshire Terriers, more commonly known as a Staffie and unofficially classified as a pit bull. If you saw one, you'd know immediately it was a pit bull. If you've seen a blue nose staffie puppy, you'd just melt. It's one of the more tame pits that is catching on around the US because you get the benefits of the pit bull bloodline, just taken down a notch. These dogs are some of the best family dogs you'll find, as long as you pay a little attention to them. You don't even have to send them off to camp to be trained. They may not be as gentle as Labradors and lick every stranger they meet, but Labradors won't protect your family's life with their own if they sense danger or panic.

cryinoutloud: You kind of get that feeling if you look at their Facebook page (linked at Huffpo)


I actually didn't check the facebook page. I'm also not saying it COULDN'T have happened, and as a customer, I would have been appalled at the store taking these actions personally, but anymore, I can't believe a store or company would pull this considering how litigious our society is these days. Everyone wants a quick buck, but there are those that don't want to work for it.

It's terrible what happened to this girl. This happened to one of my nieces with a Chow Chow (over 200 stitches to put her scalp and face back together, and scarred for life, mentally and physically), so I feel a great overwhelming need for compassion. I have personally never witnessed someone asked to leave a restaurant because of appearance. I've seen them asked to leave for various reasons (including smell at one point), but never something like this.

I guess I'm torn on who to blame and fall back on my belief that humans are inherently greedy and will lie, cheat and steal to get some of what others have. Businesses seem a quick and easy route to this, as they generally go for a quiet settlement to hush the people up. I'm more apt to believe the family has blown this WAY out of proportion and taken it to the extreme, using viral internet instead of word of mouth to get their payday.

Then again, I am jaded.

Victoria's family is struggling financially due to the fact that the insurance company is refusing to pay for many of her medicines and anything to do with her feeding tube or formula which is $550 a month. Please continue to pray for Victoria and for God to make a way financially. Thanks for the support!

KFC has reached out for more information thanks to the overwhelming support for Victoria. Thank you for sharing her story and please continue to pray for her and her recovery. She still has several surgeries in her future and will continue to need our love and support.

Several people have asked what they can do outside of money, because Victoria has struggled with her new appearance and she will not be able to have her eye socket repaired anytime soon we are buying decorative eye patches for her. They can be purchased online at etsy.com, ebay.com or amazon.com. they are usually between $10-$15 apiece. If you would like to mail an eye patch please do so to 120 Blessed Drive Harrisville MS 39082
Please remember to purchase for the RIGHT eye. Thanks for all the support for this sweet child.
https://www.etsy.com/market/kids_eye_patch

I found this page from the facebook group, which I found in the article about this lovely girl being asked to leave a restaurant. I just can't believe what I read and wanted to do something to help, even if I don't have much to donate. Victoria is a beautiful little girl, with or without her scars.


Now I'm not saying that this couldn't have happened at KFC, maybe it did, but the family is looking at a lot of surgery for this kid (that's also detailed on the Facebook page.) It's now been several months since the attack, support is probably dropping off now......lots of people in the world to feel sorry for, after all.

I don't know, the KFC story sounds kind of wimpy, and the whole family sounds kind of TOO pious and thankful. Hundreds of "pray for us" and "our hearts lifted in gratitude" and stuff of that nature. Hell, if my grandpa's dog had attacked my kid, I'd be too embarrassed to say much, let alone plaster my kid's painful recovery all over Facebook. Which they are.

Kids are far less likely to be injured or killed at school than at home.  If the money and attention being put into "school shooter" protection were put into quality school counseling and outreach, then far more kids would be certain to benefit.
