NFT: Another dog mauling death ...

I like dogs (we've had several very good ones and one dangerous "schitzo", a Chinese Shar-Pei).

There are just some breeds that tend to be unpredictable. I would NEVER again, own any of them -like Pit Bulls, Presa Canario etc. (especially with young children around)

49 deaths in 2017, in the US.

was walking the dog the other day and a pitbull broke  
madgiantscow009 : 5/8/2018 3:24 pm : link
through a screened window of a house, ran across the street, and charged us. Luckily by time it got to us he decided he was more scared than bitey. I look over at the house and a 6 year old (or about that age) was looking out of the window. He was watching his little brother and wasn't allowed to leave the house. Eventually he got the dog, but it was pretty frustrating.

A pitbull just mauled a little dog the other day. It belong to a homeless man, (which they don't watch their dogs). A couple was walking their dog on a leash when it was attacked. We've had several pitbull attacks near the park.
Meanest dogs..

I ever ran into were a chiuahua and a Scottie.

Now granted, you aren't going to do from getting mauled, but you still got bit.

Instead of blaming dogs, blame the situations people put their toddlers in.
Pitbulls are a problem  
jamalduff123 : 5/8/2018 3:44 pm : link
I never understand why there are so many pit bull apologists (many of my friends are). There is ample evidence that the vast majority of serious or fatal dog attacks are from pit breeds. It's not even close.

Pit lovers love to point out how Chihuahuas and other breeds bite too, and they do, but they don't pose a serious threat. When a pit bulls snaps, watch out. If I had kids, I would not let them anywhere near pits.

I also think they're ugly as sin, look like hell hounds. I just don't understand the appeal.

None of the three dogs in the house was a pit bull.

The dogs at the home included a 98-pound Rottweiler, 89-pound Labrador and 10-pound terrier, Carranza said.



And while you might assume it was the Rottie, Labradors can be quite bitey and small terriers can be very nasty. A ten pound dog is easily capable of mauling a three month old child.

The fact is, breed-based, dog bite statistics are mostly shit because the underlying data is poor. Most people are not dog breed experts and will often identify any scary dog as a Pit Bull. LEOs have said they they just put down Pit Bull on their reports if the breed of the unknown or indeterminate.


my comment was to the people suggesting it was a pit bull. I read the article linked (the first one) and it didn't mention the breeds at all.

I did not watch the video.

Where do you see the breeds listed?

Quote:
SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. -- An infant girl died Saturday after she was mauled by a dog in a Sherman Oaks home, police said. CBS Los Angeles reports that the attack happened at 3:25 p.m. local time.

The 3-month-old was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Authorities later announced that the baby died at the hospital from her injuries.

According to LAPD Police Services Officer Stacy Ball, there were three dogs in the home and police did not know which one mauled the infant.

Subsequently, all three dogs were taken into custody by animal control officers.

The attack happened when the baby's grandmother, who was babysitting at the time, stepped away to get a bottle, The Associated Press reported Sunday.

The AP also writes that the family is extremely distraught and that next Sunday would have been the first Mother's Day for the infant's mom.

I Googled around for more info.

Still, it's pretty typical. There's no breed info in the OP article, so it obviously must be a Pit Bull.

I think some aggressive breeds are cute AF (i've come across numerous stray pitbulls in BFE who are absolutely loving) but yes many are unpredictable and can cause harm.

Always seems 99.999999999% of the time the dog attacks are done by dogs whose owners encourage aggressive behavior (or are aggressive themselves) or are from an historically aggressive litter (trained for fighting or guarding or just bullying) or were abused/neglected, or just stray and feral after being castoff from above reasons.

Do they all need to go? Heck no. But there really does need to be way more penalties and regulations for who can own these and monitoring their environment before purchase.


So we need to turn into Russia because tragedies happen? Interesting observations. Ill just keep carrying my 9mm instead thanks

I would personally never have a high risk breed near a child.

What's the upside? You're banking on *you* raising the risk out of an animal.

The combination of size, propensity, and data just seems too much. It's not the dog's fault, it's just an increased risk.

As many other have noted, there are small dogs with bad attitudes. These dogs just don't have jaws that can kill.
just was discussing a neighbors bit bull with my wife yesterday  
jcp56 : 5/8/2018 7:06 pm : link
New neighbors seem very nice but the woman walks or rides her bike with her two dogs, one of which is a huge pit bull, unleased. I'm a dog lover, but I don't want to get near a dog that can do some serious damage. If you have an bread bred for aggression and that can do some damage, I think you have a huge responsibility to make sure it doesn't harm anyone (at least no one on your property). We have another neighbor who walks a chiwawa and a pit bull mix -- both are leased and the pit bull is muzzled, as it should be.

Besides having a loaded firearm, what would you carry for protection. Pepper spray? Bear spray? Like I said, I love dogs, but if that pit bull comes at me, my family, or my dog, its going to get stopped.

Small dog+bite=small problem. Big dog+bite=big problem. Especially with a breed with strong bites like the bully breeds.

Unfortunately, these pits in the news were probably raised wrong then rescued and reverted back to negative behavior.

We always look at the wrong end of the leash in these situations.


Exactly, BUT I will also agree that some breeds are more aggressive and likely to attack than others when all things are equal. Just a shame they arenít ALL raised properly and put in the right situations.

Owning a bigger, stronger dog on its own is a liability. Raising a dog is just one factor. I have an extraordinarily well behaved, well trained Beagle/Shep mix. She's an absolute sweetheart.

She's also bigger than a lot of dogs and certainly children. She's still part German Shep and despite all of her training, obedience and my trust, no way am I letting her off-leash or around a toddler unsupervised for a nano-second.

Why would I ever risk putting a child or my dog in that scenario.

One thing I've noticed, at least here in Los Angeles, is that when you look at pictures of shelter dogs up for adoption, 90% of the dogs listed as "Labrador" look like pit hybrids, and not like labs. I don't doubt that they are part lab, but...

That said, I have no idea about the dogs in this tragedy.

Tragic story


that's why I always have a flashlight and knife on me when I walk the dog. I can get away if attacked, but the dog or a loved one is a different story.

the flashlight is for sticking out for something to bite or as a weapon if bit. The times a dog tried to get my dog it wasn't serious threats and we just pulled the dog off (mine doesn't seem to realize it is in danger and doesn't fight back).

Dog owners out west seem less responsible and most dogs are pitbill mixes or Chihuahuas mixes if little dogs. I never had a dog come at me back east, 4 times already in the past two years. I am a little worried for the ladies pushing their babies around here without something to deter a dog.

This is what sucks about the internet... people with a sliver of facts making wholesale indictments and judgments of other people. First of all, the story implies the mother wasn't even there.

Hades07 : 5/9/2018 11:40 am : link
aggressive. I have found that training a dog with a predisposition of aggression are much harder to train than others. Which means if you are going to take the responsibility of owning an aggressive dog you must know what you are doing and train specifically to control this side of the dog. I have also found that the vast majority of dog owners are not particularly good at training their dogs regardless of the breed or disposition. Pit bulls tend towards aggression and are often owned by people without the capability to train them properly. Add in the people who train them to make them more aggressive and you have a dangerous dog breed.

So is it the dogs fault? IDK, not really, but it doesn't change the reality that these dogs are more dangerous than others. Does it really matter who is at fault for the situation. I personally would not have an issue owning a Pit Bull because I am well accustomed to dealing with aggressive dogs, but I am very wary of other's pit bulls because I am unaware of their ability to handle them. People say you can't outlaw these dogs, but were aren't talking about some protected species. All dog breeds are manufacture by people.

If a manufacturer of Ford gas tanks was producing tanks that tended to explode, even in a small percentage, don't you think they would be prevented form continued manufacture? There is no logical reason to "protect the breed" since breeding in general is unhealthy for the dog. There is no logical reason to continue manufacture of this dangerous product no matter who is at "fault" for the issue.

IDK the details of the story, so I am not inclined to assign blame, but what you describe is accurate in my opinion.

Not really sure the breed of the dog matters (not implying you were) as I had a neighbor who left the room and her cocker spaniel mauled her 2 year old's face. The kid survived, but lost an eye, nose, ear, cheek and nearly died because the dog got the kid's throat open. That dog had been nothing but friendly to everybody it ever met up to that point. Never leave your dog alone in a room with a child that is unable to handle and command the dog himself. I don't care what breed the dog is or how friendly and sweet he is. Not all dogs appreciate the new pup joining his pack and attempting to usurp its rank in pack hierarchy. So unless you can actually read an animal's mind, keep the kid or the dog with you.

This x100.

There is no animal you can trust completely in the presence of an upsupervised small child.

As a child grows older, stronger, smarter then the calculus changes.

In my view there is never a point when any child can safely be alone with a dog that is larger or stronger than the child.
I thought that was just common sense, though

I have a 10 lb terrier that's closer to stuffed animal than wild animal, but when my sister in law visited with her 2 year old I wouldn't leave him alone with the baby.

For starters, her son was after the dog the entire time. My dog is the most docile, sweet dog there ever was. The entire time, he had his tail and ears pulled, he was slapped (not intentionally, but 2 year old motor skills being what they are). He barked a couple of times, but he never snapped. I give him credit for that though. I could see how an animal, who doesn't know any better, no matter how gentle, could lose control in a bad way under those circumstances.

Hades07 : 5/9/2018 3:59 pm : link
it has been my experience in life that "common sense" doesn't exist. While to you or me, it seems obvious that any dog could be a risk, this is because we have experience with dogs. A lot of people have their first dog, or if they had a dog as a child they had no responsibility over it. So they have no practical basis to draw that common sense from. Add in first time parent and we are all morons with our first kid and you have a situation that can be dangerous. Do you think kids today will grow up knowing the same "common sense" items we did? How about their grand parents, or great grand parents.

"Common sense" is derived from our own experiences and is unique to each individual. There are many experiences that many of us share and gives rise to the notion that of course everyone knows that, it's common sense. Never trust in that, the only common sense humans share is the ability to grasp and suck, everything else we learn.

I wasn't there so I can't judge her level of responsibility. Regardless of fault, which matters little at this point, she lost her child and I think anyone with a child can sympathize with her for her loss without absolving her of the responsibility in the death. I am quite certain that she is beating herself up more than anyone here can about it. I have known more than one parent who took their own lives after the loss of a child that was in no way their responsibility, yet blamed themselves regardless and couldn't live with it.

Because if the grandmother brought them with her, then you have a point.
Otherwise, one can only assume the parents were complicit in having their newborn around 3 large dogs.

Proper training is only going to help so much when an animals instincts override the training and love that the animal has received. The stronger the dog...the more likely they are to inflict serious harm. Your probably more likely to get bit by a small dog than a large one....but you are more likely to remember the bite from the large dog for obvious reasons.

If you leave a child around a dog or cat...there is a remote chance of something happening.
