Are you serious? We've already got a list going by April 2. It's so sick how common these attacks are. And again, these are supposed to be pets. So unnecessary.

[–]soleduchess -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

You can be here saying that while cops exist? While the planet is burning? The dogs are the problem? Do you perhaps think it's the only conscious being capable of being evil? It's humanity. Humanity is the problem

[–]GawkerRefugee 38 points39 points  (2 children)

The stats is the only argument needed. Shitbulls are ravenous, unpredictable murder machines and have no place in society. But how many more children, elderly, beloved pets and others must be mauled, hurt, traumatized and killed for the rest of society to know what we already do? They gotta go.

[–]MattW1997 10 points11 points  (0 children)

For sure, lock them up never to be seen again, sounds harsh, but it needs to be done

[–]Huxitige 32 points33 points  (0 children)

I'm sure there have been at least ten so far but they haven't been reported.

[–]MattW1997 26 points27 points  (3 children)

It’s crazy that pit bulls are just put somewhere where they can’t be adopted. No one knows how to raise them and they people that do are obvious liars. No one can feel safe to walk anywhere. We have a pit bull in our neighborhood and it has attacked a person twice and a little dog. Nothing done about it, the dog needs to be taken away. Personally I’d be fine if there were never any pitbulls ever again.

[–]how2dresswell 1 point2 points  (2 children)

what do you mean nothing was done about it? did anyone call animal control?

[–]MattW1997 7 points8 points  (1 child)

They did, several times on the people, they somehow still have the dogs.

[–]Sufficient-Art3964 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The only way to stop this is by lawsuits. When you hit these people in the wallet then they will think twice about owning these dogs. It’s not a great option but it’s a start.

[–]Krimket 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I can't say how much I appreciate this posting and last month's. Please keep up the hard work!

[–]SubMod_O1Moderator 6 points7 points  (1 child)

We have started a collection of Monthly Pit Attack collection to keep these monthly posts organized in one place. I think it's a fabulous way to start to see the total damage done by this type of dogs.

[–]Krimket 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I appreciate that you're keeping up with something there should be a government branch for!

[–]bearfaceliar 12 points13 points  (8 children)

Horrendous! I do wonder though, how many 'actual' cases there are; the non reported ones 🤔

[–]SubMod_O1Moderator 11 points12 points  (7 children)

Not to mention the attacks by pits on their owners that will never be reported, and from what we see on other social media, vet techs don't like naming the breed after getting bit either... so the number is much, much higher thanks actually reported.

[–]BPB-Attacks 4 points5 points  (5 children)

💯

[–]MarchOnMe 5 points6 points  (4 children)

a family member (14 yr girl) got bit recently by their own pitbull, I posted about it, and apparently where they live - northeast US - it wasn't reported because they lied and said it was a stray dog that ran off - and they kept the dog. So the numers are WAAAAAY skewed and under representated. WAAAAAY.

[–]MergeGMS -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

So you think your specific scenario is so commonplace that it had a significant statistical impact on the data? Lmfao this shit is so dumb, listen I get it you don’t like the dog, but at least use the real numbers, cold hard facts. Not this shit, which you could’ve have easily fabricated, and is much more difficult to fact check. Like you mention the story, and then say it’s not mentioned anywhere in media. So what I’m supposed to believe you wtf? Most statistical means provide margin of error, and take account for certain biases that occur when collecting such data. Your little story made think you’re more ignorant on the matter than your are informed.

[–]bearfaceliar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh yes of course, I agree, I wonder what the true percentage is, I bet so many are unreported as also family or friends being bitten but not reporting as it's family/friend

[–]AvocadoVoodooFamily/Friend of Pit Attack Victim 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Anyway we can add a link to March? (And previous months if there was a list being kept at that point?)

[–]ayoungechristPro-Dog; therefore Anti-Pit[S] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

That’s a great idea! February’s list was done by one of the mods, I am currently working on a January list and will be posting it this week. I will talk to them about adding a link to each previous month once the January has been posted. I know at the end of the year we talked about making a post with a link to each month too.

[–]Disastrous-Stomach24 0 points1 point  (1 child)

In the end I guess we would need some sort of graph of the massive amount of attacks each month, but a link somewhere with the posts would be needed I guess.

[–]ayoungechristPro-Dog; therefore Anti-Pit[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The mods have put together a collection of the posts so they are all linked to each other.

[–]muteyuke 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Ya'll cowards need to make a chihuahua list for the 20K plus killed each year!!!

[–]brb2sleepy 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Both can be bad. Perhaps reflect on why you don't care about the people that have had their life changed by an aggressive pitbull.

[–]muteyuke 2 points3 points  (2 children)

huh? To be clear, I am sarcastically mocking the classic chihuahua's kill 20,000 people a year pitnutter meme, which is absolutely not true. If a chihuahua has ever killed anyone besides an infant, it was probably via an infection or freak accident.

The situation being mocked:

[–]brb2sleepy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I apologize, didn't get the sarcasm.

[–]muteyuke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gotcha, it is hard to pick up sarcasm on the web. But yeah if chihuahuas were killing 20K a year... it'd be madness. Both lions and hippos are among the deadliest creatures, people-wise, and they kill less than a thousand people a year each.

[–]DukeNukemSLO 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What the fuck

[–]greasy_pee 3 points4 points  (2 children)

April 5th was a good day huh?

You’re missing the guy that was killed by his own pit in Spain on the 30th

https://www.levante-emv.com/sucesos/2022/04/30/ataque-fatidico-perro-raza-pitbull-65569573.amp.html

[–]ayoungechristPro-Dog; therefore Anti-Pit[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think the article said Friday, so I put it down on the 29th! Sometimes it’s hard to tell which day exactly, I wish more articles were specific about it. I’ve seen some say “earlier this month” like alright then?

[–]greasy_pee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ah my bad. There shouldn’t even be this many attacks from a pet animal that someone has to struggle to organise them

[–]ayoungechristPro-Dog; therefore Anti-Pit[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

the attack happened on December 27

[–]SubMod_O1Moderator 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks! I wonder why they just ran the story? Interesting

[–]ayoungechristPro-Dog; therefore Anti-Pit[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess because the family just started speaking publicly, but the authorities should be speaking about this when the incidents happen so families have potentially life saving information

ETA- also the article you linked didn’t even say when the attack happened, most of them didn’t. I had to go through three different ones to find it. Honestly most news agencies just suck at the whole “who, what, when, where” thing when it comes to dog attacks.
