    Jeez, some of you people are idiots. This dog was raised alongside my 3 yr old boy, they were best friends. That dont mean i am not going to have the dog put down though. I have 5 kids and wouldnt allow a biter around them. The dog is 3 and my youngest son is 3. They played together, Eli would fall asleep leaning on the dog and they loved each other. Sleep overs and no school, rowdy noisy kids and i guess this is what happens. Never again though.

    Pit bulls are a hell of a lot smarter than most of their owners, and most of either shouldn’t be around kids!

    Not many people up in arms about this, it must be acceptable when dogs bite children… How about a follow up report.

    Yeah, great dogs. You can train a tiger to do tricks, you can train a deer to eat out of the palm of your hand, you can have a wolf as a pet if you want to train them…but they are wild animals, eventually the instinct takes over.

    If a kid bit a pit bull, there would be at least 50 posts by now demanding that the child be locked up or put down.

    I suppose this JUSTIFIES killing that dog named Junker at the school last week – good political move.
