    Pit Bull MAULS Its Owner — Right In Front Of Animal Control

    A dangerous pit bull was undeterred by the presence of animal control when it attacked its owner in Dearborn, Michigan, Monday.

    Concerned neighbors called animal control over their fear the pit bull was menacing the neighborhood, according to WDIV.

    The house the pit bull dwelled displayed an ominous “Beware of Dog” outside its environs, warning passer-bys of the danger that lurked behind the fence.


    The animal control officer learned first-hand of the danger when she peeked over the fence to see the pit bull with its owner. According to eyewitnesses, the dog sprang after the officer as the owner tried to hold it back


    That’s when the pit bull turned on its owner.
    In a scene reminiscent of the first Jurassic Park, the owner begged animal control to shoot the dog as he was under attack.

    “All we saw was him flailing around behind the fence there. He was just going, ‘No, no no,’ and at some point, he goes, ‘Shoot it. Shoot it. Shoot it,” neighbor Austin Ramos told WDIV.

    I've never had a violent dog, but I always had a gun if it menaced someone and wouldn't stop on command.
    The gun always obeys my commands, and I had good dogs that also did the same thing. But you can never be absolutely sure about dogs.

    Maggie (R.I.P.) could get nasty if you tried to remove anything from her mouth, or if you approached P1 or P2 when they were outside. Once, when the kids were young, my sister hugged P1 and the dog stood up and growled.

    My friend had a springer spaniel that would bite his wife once a month and drew blood. She refused to let him get rid of the dog because she loved the dog to death. The dog never even growled at anyone else

    Most breeds can be aggressive when they are threatened or their owners are threatened. This isn't something new and it doesn't mitigate or trivialize the history of pit bulls.


    A pit bull has a stronger drive to be aggressive and they often show that aggression when no threat exists. They can be very nice and loving, but only a fool would trust one. I know pit bull owners don't like to hear that, but some things are obvious to most people.

    Chances are it wasn't a black lab or a golden retriever.

    So, why aren't the Pit Bull haters talking about the 8 month old Pit Bull who saved a 7 month old human baby from a house fire by dragging it by its diaper to safety?
