Stray Pitbull Dog Killed My Daughter’s Easter Duck, and right in front of her.

I DO NOT CARE what anyone says about Pitbull’s; they are mean and nasty dogs and I can just about prove it.    I know you all have heard about the horror stories about Pitbull’s and you all will say, it is all in how they are raised.   I have known many Pitbulls and I KNOW VERY FEW THAT ARE TRUSTWORTHY.  

I had already that morning called the Sherriff’s office;that morning to find out what I could do about the dog, they sent a deputy and he told me that unless it attacks somethig, I could not shoot it.   He was able to lure it away; and I went about my morning; did not think anything more of it until I had passed this same dog on my return from getting the kids.    Friday as we were doing chores; before we went to the Relay for Life,  a stray female pitbull came in the yard and started chasing the animals, to make matter’s worse all the kids were out there with me.   I did try yelling at it to go home; not that it would of worked,  it then went after the chickens and ducks, one duck was unable to get away, no amount of shouting and throwing sticks at it would make it drop the duck.  It just so happened that a friend of mine who lives near by called me and I told her what was going on, and she drove right over.  I sent her up the road in the hope that it had dropped the duck on the way out and it somehow made it,  she was able to find the dog and the duck, she was able to get the duck away, but the duck had been hurt to bad and did not make it.   There is nothing as heart wrenching as to tell a 7 year old child that it’s pet that it has named is dead.  I had been at another neigbours house; when some of his son’s friends showed up and I remember that one of them said he had a pitbull, I sent my friend up to the house to see if the guy’s son could tell me if it was his.  They showed up and said it was not theirs and that they did not know where it came from; while they were there it ran up my driveway and around the back of the house, towards the animals the three of us run back there in time to see it chase the goats and almost catch one.  It then took off after a few chickens and then came back around to try for the goats again.    They finally cornered it; and offered to take it away for me.   My husband had already left; to go help set up for the Relay for life, and I was supposed to be there as soon as we were done, which shouldn’t have taken as long as it did.    I did call him and tell him why were were going to be late, and he said he understood and just to get there when I could.  All I can say is that I hope it ended up in a gully dead somewhere.   I know for a fact that if I had left and they hadn’t taken the dog away with them, I would have come home to lot’s of dead animals.   

IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU NOT LIKE THE BREED;  I will then tell you another story that happened just a few day’s before this duck attack.

Was at a friends house; they had asked me to watch their dog’s for them; they had to go out of town due to a death in the family and I of course said yes.  They have pitbulls and I knew this when I said yes, I showed up at their house for the walk through and while we were out side one of the dog’s attacked my youngest.  We were lucky the dog was on a chain and that all my daughter walked away with was a fat lip and scratches.  They keep the dogs on ziplines, due to the fact they have no fence up yet and if the dog had been off of it, I WOULD NOT have a child at this monent.  It took me beating on the dog’s nose with my child’s shoes to let go of my daughter’s clothes.  The owners’s wife and I was not more than 20-25 feet away when it happend.  They let their childen outside to play with theses dogs all the time and only check on them every few minuets.    This  dog had never offered to do anything before; your are most likely going to say well then my child must have done something to the dog.   Yes! SHE WENT OVER TO PET IT,  the owner of the dog took it to the vet and had it put down, as if it was going to do it to one child, there was nothing to keep it from happening again and to their children.
