What are the rules here

Ya jeebus ride your bike somewhere else, not in your neighborhood. That lady should be able to run her dog wherever she likes. And if the dog rips the face off a 7 year old kid remember it's not the dog's fault, the owner is to blame. So no harm, no foul.

Pit bull owner charged after Hampton attacks

HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – A Hampton dog owner is facing charges after police say her two pit bulls viciously attacked five people Monday. WAVY.com has learned her dogs may have attacked before.

A police officer was among those bitten. That officer killed one of the dogs. Animal Control and other officers later secured the other K9, according to the Hampton Police Division.

The five victims were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The homeowner says she was not at home when the attack took place, and claims she had instructed family members not to let the dogs out of the house.

It all began at 10:52 a.m. when police responded to a 911 call coming from the 600 block of Bell Street. The preliminary investigation revealed that when the homeowner’s great-niece opened the door for the female mail carrier, the dogs ran out of the home and attacked the mail carrier. Angelique Hood, who is the homeowner’s niece, went out to help and was attacked as well.

Angelique Hood remains in the hospital with severe tendon injuries in her arm from the attack. The great-niece was seen walking down the street, but did not want to talk to WAVY.com. Her father said she has 20 puncture wounds in her arm and had to get a few stitches.

A police officer and an animal control officer who arrived on scene tried to contain one of the dogs for quarantine, but they too were bitten in the process.

All of the victims have injuries to their legs and arms.

Police asked everyone in the area to stay inside their homes, and Bassett Elementary School, which is adjacent to the homeowner’s backyard, was placed on lockdown until the second dog was secured, police and school officials confirmed.

I've been in a similar situation and called AC. They showed up and told me the dog was looking for a dog biscuit. Seriously? The dog cornered my wife and charged me on another instance. I called AC again, this time they showed up and I had my gun drawn on the dog. AC finally took the dog because it was being aggressive when they showed up. They also told me I should prepare for a lawsuit if I had shot the dog without it having made physical contact. Evidently its fairly common and while I probably wouldn't lose, the defense could cost between 25-250k.

I would carry some type of pepper spray, a collapsible baton, or even a stun gun, though I'm honestly not sure how it would work on a dog. Two of the best dogs I have ever met were pits. They are great family dogs, but they have to be properly socialized from a puppy. They can be very protective of their family. Its all in how they are raised and how well the dog was bred.

And you chose a pit as a pet based on what?

Those aren't mine. I have a beagle/aussie mix that I found one day when out riding the horse.

Do you know the disposition of the pit once it was removed the last time? Was it euthanized or held or returned to owner?

 

 

Didn't follow up.  Haven't seen the dog again.

You can be the official HPBW (Huddle Pit Bull Whisperer)

 

You can reason with it.  Maybe you and he can go to counseling together.  You can do that funny little "schhhh" sound while poking him in the side.  You can even make snarky comments to him.  All this will surely have his tail between his legs in no time.

Go ahead and file a report to animal control. 

 

If a 5-6 year old kid on a bike gets mauled tomorrow because the lady wasn't warned...then it's on her. 

 

I have a 3 strikes rule.  Pit bull came into my yard once...with my young kids outside.  Told them to stay in the pool and I'll work this dog out.  Got him out and reported to animal control.  Second time he was dragging a logging chain.  Again...called animal control.  3rd time I was going to shoot it, but there was a nice bulldog with it.  Trapped the pit in back fenced in area and called AC again and had it forcibly removed and taken away.  Bulldog was new neighbors and it was released to them. 

 

Last two events I had my pistol with me and any aggressive movement was going to cost that dog his life. 

 

you are such a badass

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
