Man mauled to death by his pit bull

I meet a lot of people with pit bulls, who assure me they’re delightful creatures. I don’t know that the breed is uncontrollably violent — I think that whenever a breed becomes popular, you get a lot of unscrupulous breeders who exacerbate those tendencies. And since it’s not unheard of now for breeders to fabricate papers, you might think you bought a well-bred dog when you didn’t. I remember this same thing happening with German Shepherds back in the 70s:

A 40-year-old man was mauled to death on Christmas Day by a pit bull he’d had since the dog was a puppy.

According to Fox 6 News, Eddie Cahill of Portage, Indiana was found dead of multiple bite wounds when his wife Bianca Rodriguez returned home on Thursday after spending part of Christmas Day with relatives.

The couple’s dog, Fat Boy, was found with blood on his muzzle. The dog had reportedly been acting aggressive in recent weeks.

  1. It’s not so much the fact that they are the most violent breed (although they are one of the more violent ones). I once heard that toy poodles were more likely to bite you. But when was the last time a toy poodle, or a pack of toy poodles, maimed or killed anyone? And
    I have met a lot of perfectly nice pits, but I still worry that if it snaps it can rip my face off. And I have seen pits at the dog park that are perfectly nice, but when some other (less scary, but badly socialized) dog decides to harrass another dog, the pits are always the first joiners in ganging up on the picked on dog.
    The owners are the worst. I fucking despise their dumb asses. They project this poor misunderstood persona on the pits, of it’s just so unfair! – and so they just have to have one or two or three to show the world. And then when they loose control if it, or them, it’s usually someone else that pays the price. As if they couldn’t rescue a dog with much less potential for harm. And so pits are the most common dogs around anymore. Whereas when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s, I never saw a pit bull. They were just antique dogs from Little Rascals olden times.
    I don’t feel the least bit sorry for this guy. He took a chance with the safety and lives of everyone around him (his family, neighbors, his whole community). Fortunately *he* lost that gamble and not someone else.

  2. OMG. I didn’t watch the video before that last comment. That dumb bitch widow “it was just a freak accident” “I don’t want anyone to think badly of pit bulls” is exactly what I’m talking about. Too bad fat boy didn’t take them both out.
