Pit Bulls Maul and Kill Owner

I've always defended Pit Bulls, even after being bitten by one, but this story is making me wonder if maybe they really are inherently dangerous? I've always thought there are no bad dogs, just bad owners, so what caused these two dogs to kill the person who raised them from pups and eat parts of her corpse? From everything I've read, this poor woman treated her dogs like her children.

This second link is is more detailed and graphic, so just a heads up.

Pit Bulls are often bred poorly or bred to a more dangerous breed.

Sad

spanky and our gang for those old enough to remember had a loving pit bull. My thinking is how they are raised makes more of a difference than breeding.

My neighbor has a pit bull that has killed coyotes and tore up other dogs in his yard. Very loving toward me and other.

I remember Petey.

Too bad about that woman. Sometimes people don’t realize that they are still animals and have inherent instincts. I’ve know some mean pits and also some very accommodating ones. Unfortunately the breed gets a bad rap and that’s probably from association. A lot of breeds can be temperamental.

I have been a professional dog trainer for almost 15 years. There's good and bad in all breeds and 99% of the pits I have trained were wonderful dogs.

Most of what makes dogs bad comes from poor training or a lack of training. Not all that many dogs have rage.

The problem with this breed is that if you DO get a bad one, they definitely have the ability to do some damage. Many breeds (like Sheppards and Dobie's) will lunge, grab and hold. This trait has always made them good 'guard' dogs. Other breeds (like pits) will rip and tear once they have a bite on. This is not good.

Truth is, in all the years I have been training, I have only been bitten once to the point of blood. And, it was a toy poodle. LMAO Little fucker attacked me with the ferocity of any Pit Bull. LMAO

Do think the alpha was the ringleader and the other dog followed along? It kills me to think they turned on the person who loved them the most.

The Pit that bit my arm, I could tell the owner had poor control of him. Luckily it was winter and I was wearing three layers, otherwise it might have done some damage.

I've had a pit boxer mix for 13 years and he is incredibly mellow and loving. He's never snapped or even growled at someone or even been in a dog fight. He's great with kids. It's a huge misconception that they are bad dogs. It all has to do with how they are raised and cared for.

Impossible to say based on a news story which is probably only 20% true. However, some breeds, once properly motivated, are controlled very heavily by instinct. Take sight hounds, for instance. Once that 'rabbit' is let loose in front of them, not much on Earth will distract them.

Pits can be this way, once enraged. If an animal (or person) came out of the woods suddenly and with a lot of intention, that could have set the pits off into a frenzy. Once in a frenzy, friend and foe become blurred.

Impossible to say. My guess is, they'll blame it on Trump.

Supposedly that woman received death threats from someone in the week preceding this. I’ve also read that it looked like the dogs escaped to come to her rescue. There could be foul play involved.

What would make the dogs turn on their owner all of a sudden?

Stuff from the news implies a little mistreatment going on there. The girl had them as indoor dogs, but gave them to her father who put them outside. I imagine that made them a little wild though since they didn't get the socialization. This part is gross coming up now!!!!!! They found the dogs chewing her ribcage area. Did the father feed the dogs ever?

My neighbor has a pit that is the nicest dog I've seen lately. When I see the dog he licks me to death. He has a huge head and jaws so I don't want to get on the wrong side of him though.
