Aug 08, 2017 Springfield Pit Bulls Seriously Maul Sleeping 3-year-old Girl

Springfield - Three-year-old Mirra Kay Neal was napping when two pit bulls she had known and played with all her life seriously mauled her in a completely unprovoked attack requiring 7 hours of surgery.  The pit bulls inflicted 82 lacerations with over 52 to just her face.



The pit bulls have been put down.  They were owned by a long-time friend of Mirra’s father.  A facebook page was set up for her where her parents admonished commenters to not put down pit bulls.

At least this attack was reported.  That is a big thing in Illinois where the media usually won’t even report pit bull attacks.  A fatal attack, probably committed by a pit bull, in Quincy this year has been completely swept under the rug.  This is an extreme disservice to the citizens of Illinois.

Aug 01, 2017 Aggressive Joliet Pit Bull Menaces Man While Loose

Joliet - Another loose, aggressive pit bull menaces a victim, this time a man. The pit bull grabbed the man’s hand but did not bite down. The pit bull's owner is Ramon Rosas-Vazquez.

Apparently, Joliet is attempting to name and shame irresponsible pit bull owners in a vain attempt to curb their massive pit bull attack problem instead of doing the right thing, which is to ban pit bulls in Joliet.

Jul 31, 2017 Aggressive Joliet Pit Bull Nearly Attacks Two Children

Joliet - A father was luck to be able to protect his children from a loose, aggressive pit bull. The pit bull owner’s was identified and his name and photo were published online in an apparent attempt to deter the massive number of Joliet residents with pit bulls from letting their pit bulls attack innocents.  So far, it is not working. Joliet needs a ban and it needs a ban more than most places.

Jul 20, 2017 Chicago Pit Bull Attacks Two at Dog Park: $500 REWARD

Chicago River North - A stupid young woman took her pit bull to a dog park and allowed it to attack two dogs in separate attacks.  The first attack was on a husky which left two puncture wounds and a terrified husky.

Idiot pit bull owner doing what they always do with their pit bull attacks
nothing
The second attack was on a corgi which got picked up by the neck and shaken like a ragdoll.  Photos show the pit bull owner stood there like a stuffed nitwit doing nothing.  The corgi owner couldn't help either.  It was a brave third woman who actually saved the corgi from the pit bull's grip.  She punched the pit bull in the ribs three times and then quickly removed the corgi from the dog park.  She must have known that pit bulls ALWAYS go back to the attack after they are initially unlocked from their prey.

The corgi's owner, hampered by an unbelievable degree of political correctness, didn't leave the dog park after witnessing the first attack to protect his dog; he didn't tell the stupid young woman to leave to protect his dog; nope, he approached her and began talking to her and when he heard screaming, he knew it was his dog (because he'd led the poor corgi to the pit bull).

Mr. Unbelievably-Bad-Judgment doesn't want the pit bull "to get into trouble,"  but he offered a $500 reward for anyone who can lead him to the pit bull's owner who must have skipped off.  He doesn't want her to pay the $1,000 vet bill or to have her vicious pit bull put down.  He just wants to raise her awareness and perhaps convince her to get the pit bull "rehabilitated" (that isn't a real thing) and to perhaps not go to the dog park with her mauler if that's ok with her.  (I want to know how someone with poor judgment to that incredible degree is able to have that much money to throw away.)

What should happen is that pit bull should be deemed dangerous after two attacks and the pit bull should be put down and the pit bull owner fined.  That would be a service to the community Mr. Unbelievably-Bad-Judgment because if you don't report the bite, the next victim will be at square one, and will not be able to get that mauler out of the neighborhood.
