There are too many cases of pits raised in a family environment around kids, fed well, treated well, and exercised well and then one day they eat someone’s face or arms. It is the breed. Ownership can make a difference, but it cannot overcome the breeding these dogs have gone through.

I guess I look at things differently. Bad things sometimes happen. I'm not in favor of outlawing or killing all dogs of any breed because one or two out of 30 million Texans dies every year or so.


Lucky for us it’s always the other one or two and not you or me.

Owning pit bulls is just playing Russian Roulette with your kids or neighbors. It's not if, it's when with a great many of them, no matter the love of lack of given them!!! I say let folks keep them, but if they rip someone's face off, they should have theirs ripped off too. Kill someone, they should die. That might slow the pit bull ownership down a bit. mad

Had to post it again with all the GS danger talk!

When my kids were little my wife's co worker friend invited us to go out to dinner and their 16 year old daughter was going to baby sit at their apartment. We showed up , walked in and they had 2 Pit Bulls slobbering around in the living room. I politely said, "I'm sorry, but we won't leave our 3 and 5 year old girls here with those dogs in the house. The couple got very defensive and insulted and said their dogs had never bitted anyone. I politely said , "yeah, well there's Rattlesnakes that live under my barn that have never bitten anyone either" We left with our kids. The co worker "friend" never spoke to my wife again.

They do make good ballistic test targets though.


GOD is good!

How often does something have to happen before it is referred to as "constant"? Between 2010 and 2021, twelve years, there were 185 people killed by pit bulls. That comes out to about 15 per year. With a population of 330 million that means you have a 1 in 22,000,000 chance of being killed by a pit bull this year. Of course 54 of those victims were the dogs' owners, so if you don't own a pit your odds go down to 1 in 30,275,000.

The odds of winning the Lotto Texas jackpot are 1 in 25,827,000 so if you are worried about being killed by a pit bull you should probably buy lottery tickets constantly so you can at least die a multi-millionaire.

Just putting things in perspective...

This is a perfectly reasonable response. I would do the same thing if they had German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Chows, Huskies, or even a house full of Chihuahuas. My wife's family had a beagle when she was in high school. It nipped me when I tried to pet it and bit her through the nose badly enough that she had to have stitches.

We have one and I about shot it with my Glock 43 before it killed my bird dog because me and my buddy who is a big ol boy could not get him to let go. We finally got em split up 40 something stitches later and 800 dollar vet bill that episode was over. Then a year or two went by it went after me. Luckily I was a little quick than him. Great dog 99.9 percent of the time but that .1 is some scary stuff. Want nothing to do with them. Lets just say I love my wife because that dog should have been dead a long time ago.

I don't know. What are the odds of getting 5 numbers instead of 6?

I don't have a pit bull although I used to have a 75% pit, 25% lab mix. Huge jaws. I wouldn't have wanted it to clamp down on me. Incredibly sweet dog, used to try to jump in the bed and sleep against me. I just hate to see overreactions fueled by media reports and sensationalism.

I wouldn't let my kids or wife stay in a house with someone else's pit bull. I also wouldn't try to get their dogs taken away or euthanized because I have read media reports about someone else's dog mangling someone. A lot of the people who have pits and Rottweilers have them for a reason, because they think it is cool or macho to have a mean dog. They probably raise them that way. My mom was about as country as a person can get. She toted her own 16 gauge and would go down to the chicken house at 3 a.m. to kill a snake, possum, or anything else that got in. She had a huge Doberman and didn't want anyone to pet it because she wanted it to be a watchdog that would tear someone up. She later had a Chow. I was more worried about the Chow than the Doberman.

I had a co-worker that had one pit bull , she started dating a guy that had one pit bull . They introduced the dogs in a neutral environment and everything was fine . They eventually get married and the dogs were in the same house for about one year --- never had a problem . Then one day , for some unknown reason the two dogs just start going at it ---- full on war . The husband was there and both he and the wife couldn't separate the two dogs . Finally the dogs got pulled apart --- the entire dining area and living room looked like a war zone ---blood everywhere . All this while their 1 year old was in the kitchen . The husband took both dogs , put them in a their crates , took them out to the country and put a bullet in the back of their heads

I also had a 16 gauge, it was a pump, when I was young, wished I still had that one-

IMO, 1 in 22 million is one too many just because somebody wants a "bada$$" dog to compensate for their little talleywhacker.
