Hahahaha*, SarahK not surprised either.
Animal control says a mastiff bit a woman near a house in the 300 block of West Decatur Street.
The woman is out of the hospital, but lost part of her right breast in the attack.
First of all, ouch. I hope she recuperates well. Second of all… What? You mean other dogs besides “pit bulls” bite people? Are you sure?
A chow mix bit an 87-year-old woman, amputating her left leg.
Bit her leg off? Again, ouch. I wish her a speedy recovery. And what? You mean other dogs besides “pit bulls” bite people? Are you sure?
Animal control says they’re not surprised to see dogs other than pitbulls involed in a viscious attack.
Are they crazy? Don’t they know every dog that bites is a pit bull wearing a dog suit to imitate other breeds?
In fact, Macon County’s animal control warden says recent statistics at the shelter show pitbulls at the bottom of the bite list.
Macon County Animal Shelter volunteer Melinda Rueter says you never know when a dog might bite.
Pitbulls are a common suspect for attacking humans. But Reuter says the bad reputation comes from dog fighting.
She says pitbulls are not any more aggressive to humans than any other breed.
What? Of all the breeds responsible for bites in Decatur, IL, pit bulls are at the bottom of the list? What? And wow, that’s a lot of paragraphs for 5 sentences.
Reuter says they have many pitbulls that come into the shelter that are wonderful, affectionate dogs who are great with kids. She says and you can find many owners in the community that have pitbulls that are very happy with their dogs and don’t have any issues with aggression.
Wook at the sweet wittle puppy…
Oh no! She’s biting something! Ban her!
Earlier this month a Decatur attorney, spearheading an effort to ban pit bulls, addressed the Decatur city council.
Awww, the racist lawyer must be planning to run for DA or mayor or something. He needs a false cause to boost his public profile.
But many say a breed specific ban won’t stop dog fighting, abuse, or irresponsible owners.
What? Are you sure?
* I don’t want to make light of the women’s injuries… It’s just my… you know… pet cause.
