WACO, Texas, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Police in Waco, Texas, on Monday were investigating the weekend mauling death of a 76-year-old woman by six pit bull-Rottweiler-mix dogs in her front yard.

Lillian Stiles, 76, was on her riding lawn mower Saturday afternoon when the dogs attacked her, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported Monday.

Passing motorists spotted Stiles lying on the ground with the dogs around her, said Greg Kouba, Milam County Sheriff's Office investigator. One of the passers-by tried to help Stiles but was bitten on his right leg by a dog, he said.

At some point, Stiles' husband shot and killed one of the dogs as rescuers were on their way. Firefighters found the dogs about 500 yards away at the home of a neighbor who owns the dogs, which were taken to a veterinary clinic to be examined for diseases, the report said.

The woman's body was covered with severe bites and she was pronounced dead the scene. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.

ISN'T THIS HORRIBLE? When are people going to realize what monsters these things are? But they are still considered cool, even de riguer among the hip-hop set. There's even an new rapper named Pitbull whose posters are plastered all over Manhattan.

As if we need ignorant, savage, unpredictable murderering dogs from Texas attacking and killing needlessly in the streets. We've already got one of those in the fucking White House!

i am a fan of yours, but please, educate yourself about pit bulls before denouncing the entire breed (although, technically, "pit bull" is not a breed) and calling them monsters. the dogs' owner is the monster, and he clearly had no control over his animals and/or he trained them to be violent.

ban the deed, not the breed.

enforce responsible dog ownership.

I'll admit my ignorance on the breed. But isn't it commonly known that this type of dog has a innate tendency to ferociously turn on people? Regardless of the animal's training? Isn't that why this "breed" is sometimes banned? Because there is a substantial risk of this happening? To me, this just seemed to be another example of something scary (especially the "pack" factor) which reinforces what's commonly held as true--that these dogs are vicious. Is that not the case? I may very well be the victim of ignorant prejudice, so please enlighten me. --B

Anonymous Anonymous said... has a wealth of pit bull info. if you have some time, i highly recommend browsing the site. i could paraphrase and/or cut-n-paste, but it's probably best to go to the source.

full disclosure: i am *slightly* biased, as i am in love with a few gorgeous, sweet pit bulls in my neighborhood (east village/les).

They are very unpredictable and even dogs that have no history of attacking and come from "good" homes can suddenly turn on their owners and anyone else around. It seems to happen suddenly. It happened here in Chicago a few weeks ago. I'm very wary of them, and although I don't think they should all be destroyed, they are a definite no-no to be let loose, which seems to be when these tragic events occur.

(Besides which, they always look like Tom DeLay to me...)

I think that it's very wrong for you to say the things that you say about pitbulls, because apparently
you have never been exposed to what a pitbull is really like. They are not all horrible killing machines. The reason these dogs get the reputation like they do is because of ignorant people and ignorant behavior. Dogs only know what they are taught. And for you to say these things is wrong. I have been around numerous pitbulls since I have worked at my local animal shelter and they all have been loving animals. I also adopted a pitbull and it angers me to think that just because this happens sometimes that you think all these beautiful animals should be killed. You are misinformed. i think you should blame the owners of these dogs before you blame the dogs. And I would also like to inform you that pitbulls are one of the most abused breeds of animals in this country. So if you've never had a pitbull as a buddy than you haven't experienced
what loyalty really is.

How about you retards blame the dog owners and not the dogs. One, any dog should not be able to roam freely, two, definately not pitbulls. I have two very well trained pitbulls, even though they are well trained, i do not let them roam. Another point, inbreds and people of various races, (white trash included, not just african americans and puerto ricans are to blame) although most times there is an attack- one of the preceded races mentioned is involved, so lets look at the owners, they are the monsters. I have pitbulls, not because I want to be a tough guy, but to keep them out of the hands of the forementioned uneducated idiots that do get them so they can feel tough, because without a gun or tough breed of dog, they dont feel tough. So to all you looking to banish the breed, lets first look at banishing the breed of idiots that do not know what it takes to own a dog and take care of it, whether it be a pitbull or a poodle. Lets wake up, There's no such thing as a bad dog, just bad owners. Thank you, I hope someone gets educated by this statement. Send me an email if you'd like more education

hey bunny.....pitbulls are the most loyal and loving dogs. The only reason why people think they are vicious, is because asshole people raise them to attck, esp. the black and spanish culture. Kill the people who do that, not the dog. A little rat dog can easily attack anyone too, not just a pitbull. YOu have to own one to know what I mean.....

ALL pitbulls should be put to death. Eliminate the breed completely. There are WAY too many pitbull incedents for it to just be coincidence. These dogs are nasty and worthless. If you see one, do the world a favor and kill it however you can.

How about killing the idiots that own the vicious ones, u obviously dont know a damn thing about pitbulls, american staffordshire terriers, and other breeds of similarity, like most people they are born good, it is how they are raised that turns them into killing machines, most people that contribute to this are the white trash of America, the gang banger type African Americans, and the gang banger Latinos,( I am not racist this is just fact-the combo of the races mentioned with the pitbull breed- they think they are tough if they have a dog that can rip u to shreds(bottom line- all the thugs on this planet) they get these dogs when they are puppies, they feed them so they grow, but then they neglect them, beat them,and abuse them thus the dog develops hatred to humans or anything else in its path, probably obtains a mental disorder, as would any human that is subjected to these conditions, these humans are usually the ones that rape, kill, and terrorize people, because they themselves have been terrorized. If you show any dog, whether it be a pit or poodle, love, care, and you teach it values, they are actually smarter than most people on the face of this earth. I have two pits myself, actually rescued one from an abusive home, it is the smartest most loyal, non-vicious animal I've ever met. So pitbulls do actually get in the wrong hands. Those people have to be stopped. Bottom line, to the previous statement that all pitbulls should be killed because of a few badly raised dogs, your basically saying, lets eradicate and kill certain races because a minority of that race are bad.(Almost Hitler-like-he obviously was not a good man-I dont like all Jews- also dont hate all Jews- thus I dont want them all to die To that last comment in the blog, you must be the dumbest person I've ever gotten (I shouldnt say the pleasure) but the disgust of reading of what u have to say. You are an absolute moron, You obviously know nothing about dogs, or pitbulls,or the basic concept of life even. You just see a case here and there of an attack, next time you hear of an attack, try to figure, if it happened near a trailer park, in the ghetto, or some other piece of crap area, where most people in there, not all, are pieces of crap, that cant raise a dog, nevermind a child, those people might as well be left on a deserted island because the only use they have in this world is to fu-- it up in many ways. 1. They reproduce and dont know how to raise a child without abuse or drug addiction-alcoholism, their kids usually turn out the same. 2 They get a dog just for the hell of it, ends up being a pitbull, treat it worse than their kids, and its a threat your right, but it aint the dogs fault, Its the inbreds(white trash), the gangbanger thugs who think they are tough because they have a pitbull, or most other races in the inner city that dont give a damn about anything. SO Bottomline, before u spew absolute shit out of your mouth, do some real research, pitbull attacks actully dont even make up 1% of dog attacks each year, thats a fact, If you want more please email me, I dont hide behind anonymous- that is for cowards. No offense to anyone else supporting my view who is anonymous, email me I would be glad to educate you, you obviously have a lot to learn, not only about dogs, but life as well. Chris BOSTON MA

To the above long winded bleeding heart. I would have written earlier, but I was out feeding some pit bulls chocolate and anti freeze. Dogs are not people and do not deserve human status. You sound like a racist, a bigot, and an uneducated fool. Good luck with your pit bulls - hope they don't mess you up too bad.

You are the uneducated, racist, bigot,( I clearly stated there are some people I dislike and it has nothing to do with their religion or race, there are bad white people and good white people, there are bad african americans, there are good african americans, good jews, bad jews, etc.If you read what I said I clearly did not use any racist terms)Getting rid of a breed of dog, would be compared to a Holocaustic type event, obviously not on the same scale. You obviously know nothing about dogs, yes there have been fatal attacks, but 100% the fault of the owner, raise your dog right and it wont happen, too simple of a concept for a jack ass like you to grasp. You can compare dogs to humans because most of them are smarter, they just obviously cant speak, until you own a dog or really do some research, you wont understand, I'll say a prayer for you in hopes that you can someday receive an education, maybe even a GED. Good luck to ya, like I said before, shoot me an email, I left my email address, I really would like to educate you because it sounds like you hear a few stories and believe that every pit is bad, its like watching the news seeing for example two Latino males killing someone, so all Latinos must be bad, that is basically what you are saying, you are the bigot, I would like to educate you, If you have any ballz or guts, email me, I challenge you to learn, The news and newspaper is not a good source of education, it sounds like thats where you get yours. Gut check time for all of u....

Other breeds may bite more often, but there is a BIG difference between getting nipped on the heel by grandma's poodle and getting mauled or killed by a pit bull. Most dogs bite in fear, or to protect someone/something - not pit bulls, they bite to kill. And it certainly can be a problem with the "breed". I also owned a pit bull. Bottle fed him from 3 weeks on, raised with kids, a great home, you name it. He was great....until he attacked my 5 year old son while he was sleeping in his bed. Needless to say, the dog was put down. There goes the whole "there are no bad dogs" theory.... Not to mention, I know several other people who have had close calls or been attacked by these dogs. They are not bad people - the dogs are bad.

That is unfortunate, I am sorry to hear that, but maybe that dog had some predisposed mental problems. I have a ten year old pit, and the only time he would attack would be if my girlfriend or I were in danger,he loves people, kids as well so not all pitbulls are killing machines, something obviously went wrong there and again I am sorry for that incident, still is not reason to try and banish the breed, because those instances are few and far between. As a dog owner you should now that you dont leave a dog alone with a 5 yr old. Moral of the story, you shouldnt own a pitbull, you did something wrong somewhere along the line, I know lots of people with them and never had a problem, so we both can make points here. So I'll say it again and I will compare them to people and guns. Guns dont kill people only idiots kill people, and there are more good pitbulls than bad. There are also more good Latinos than bad, more good African Americans than bad, so on and so on. Let me ask you this. If a black man attacked you, would you want all African Americans dead?? Ponder that one. Yeah I know dogs and humans arent the same, but most dogs are actually quite smart, You should just never own a dog, get on with your life and dont be bitter about something you could have prevented.

Waco Texas, that says it all, home of David Koresh, inbreds who dont know how to raise kids, never mind dogs, most important thing to them is their big truck with a confederate flag flying on it. So they definately shouldnt be owning pitbulls, I feel for the husband of the poor people, but the owners of those dogs should go away for murder, the owner is the murderer.

"Pit bull" is not a breed, they are a part of the terrier breed. And, my dog is pit-bassett-lab mix...she is the absolute sweetest thing in the whole world and I wouldn't trade her for all the gold in China. She wouldn't hurt a fly. You need to learn more about dogs before you go blowing your load over crap you know nothing about.

Please, all those interested in learning about the Humane Society's view on Breed targeting, please read this article:

Any dog can turn on its owner, Pitbulls were actually breed for their ability to kill other animals, etc. This is the reason for fatal results when one does 'slip up'. It really has little to do with over-all 'breed temperament'.
As a breed goes, they are statistically very human friendly. But when you get one that is an exception, you better believe it could lead to serious results. Thus the reason for so much panic and rash BSL.

All this means to me is: If you are ever to own a PitBull, please be responsible. Especially based on your individual dogs temperament. It is like driving a car, there are specific rules and protocol to adhere to to not have any accidents, etc., and certain cars have greater mass, thus creating a greater force in a crash. But does this mean we should ban all large cars, or all cars, for that matter?
If your 'car' is not steering strait, please see a vet or behavior specialist. Some dogs do need to be put down, especially if they are violent. This is not a excuse for genocide (or breedicide, soon to be a new word?), and wiping out an entire breed of dog. Anyhow, Pitbulls are a mixed terrier breed. Does this mean we should also ban the components of this mix?

wow any of you people who abash the pit bull are really in need of a major wake up call, im 15 years old and have been working at a local animal shelter for 2 years, not once have i met a vicious pit but i have seen agressive golden retrievers, labs, and toy dogs. you all fall for the shit publisized by the press and you really need to learn how to research information for yourself. i know im young but at least i know how to research before i trash things i know nothing about. Plus if anything you all should feel bad for the pit, i have met more abused pits than any other animal and the ones i met truly are the sweetest animals regardless of their past. a deaf, 6 month old female pit had cuts and holes all over her body from a dumb owner and even after all of that all she wanted to do was sleep on my lap, she never gave up on humans and now shes in a loving home with children and everything

This 15 year old kid, knows more than anyone else that has written about banning Pitbulls, enough said, well put kid. Keep up the good work at the animal shelter. And to reiterate what the kid said, you people that get your information on the news and in the newspaper are in for a rude awakening when you finally become part of the "Real World", the news and newspapers are a bunch of bullshit, so do not consider the news or newspaper, research material. Thank you again, kid, working in an animal shelter, is actual research, owning a dog is research, maybe talking with veterinarians, is research, good luck to all of u searching for the "Real World", its not that bad a place, just to let you know

i am a mom of 4 in texas. 10 years ago my 10 year old son was eaten up by a pit, chow mix.he was ripped open in the stomache, his thigh muscle was reattached, and as he tried to run, the dog left a large scar on his hind buttock. i thank the man above for making him just a lil bigger than his twin brother. just a few more tendre bites like that, and my son would not have survived. the owners had to use a metal pipe to get this dog off of him. that dog was put to death, since my son was the #5th one it bit. what a shame. do i trust pit bulls? i think not.
