Apr 03, 2017 East Moline Pit Bull Killed a Dog and Was Shot by Police

East Moline - A fatal pit bull attack on another dog went unreported for a week until news outlets reported on the upcoming city council meeting in which the council was expected to discuss a potential muzzle ordinance for all dogs over 40 pounds.

It seems that the city of East Moline has been cowed by pit bull promoters. Journalists know not to report pit bull attacks; this pit bull attack is mentioned only in the video, and is referred to as a “dog fight” in the text of the online story.

The city council won’t propose pit bull regulation to address a pit bull problem. They hoped if they proposed a breed neutral ordinance, pit bull owners wouldn’t go crazy, but nope. They don’t like the breed neutral ordinance either. Since we can’t upset the pit bull advocates for some reason, chances are East Moline will just let pit bull advocates and their pit bulls continue to kill innocent dogs in front of children, and perhaps kill children as well.

Apr 02, 2017 McHenry Co Pit Bull Attacked Woman

McHenry County - A pit bull "barked" at a woman and after listening to both sides of the story, three McHenry County Sheriffs believed that the pit bull should be labelled vicious.  Despite the owner's protestations, it is conceivable that the pit bull did more than just bark.  From facebook:

Apr 02, 2017 Springfield Pit Bull Allowed to Kill Owner's Cat

Springfield - A pit bull owner betrayed her cat's trust and love and allowed her pit bull to kill her cat.  Found on facebook.



Horrible Betrayal.  


As usual with pit bull nuts, one of her friends asked if the pit bull was OK, hoping the fatally mauled cat didn't manage to hurt pittie poo as pittie poo was in the middle of ripping her apart.






Mar 29, 2017 Chicago Pit Bull Crossed Street to Attack

Chicago Pit Bull Attacked Near the Corner of Berteau and Clark

Chicago - At the corner of Berteau and Clark yet another unreported pit bull attack. In this neighborhood with two three-legged pit bulls, the owner must be a self-congratulatory, full-of-herself, idiotic rescue angel who ran away from this owner.  She's probably got a blog about her two Tripod Pitties in the City, too.


From Everyblock:

"A warning to all dog walkers/pet owners: Today I was attacked by a pit bull.

There were two 3 legged pit bulls walking on the opposite of Grace from me as I walked my dog. The two dogs started freaking out as we walked past, on the opposite side of the street, one of the dogs broke free from its owner and I watched as it came bolting across grace toward my dog.
The owner was shouting at me to "quick get my dog" and I remember thinking "Lady I have my dog right here, your dog is loose?!" but I didn't get a chance to say anything.

I have never had an encounter with a vicious dog before. This dog jumped at my dog in a way that I can only describe as dog fighting. I instinctively lifted me leg toward the dog to get it away from mine, and it circled back around and went for my dog again. I put my arm in the way and was bit in the wrist and subsequently my knee as I tired to get the dog off my arm with my other leg. It seemed like it took forever, as I realized this dog was really biting me, finally the owner grabbed her dog and wrapped herself around the dog in a protective manner or in some attempt to prevent the dog from seeing anything. I remember my blood pumping really good and calling the dog a psycho and telling her the dog was a danger. I should have called the cops but my injuries were minor and my dog was unhurt. I just wanted to get away from the situation. If the owner was not around, nothing short of incapacitating the dog would have stopped its attack. Please be careful or if you know these dogs owners please advise them to muzzle, properly leash, and attempt to rehabilitate their animal who obviously was involved in dog fighting. The more I think about it the more unsettled I am by the whole event."

Mar 21, 2017 Chicago Pack of Pit Bulls Invade Yard and Kill Beloved Beagle Mix

Chicago - A woman let her beagle mix named Sadie out to relieve herself when 6 stray pit bulls and mixes jumped their fence. Sadie’s owner tried to get Sadie inside, but couldn’t before the pit mixes got to her and mauled her to death.
RIP Sadie
Sadie was owned by an elderly couple. Both were hearing impaired and the husband was visually impaired as well. Sadie acted as their alert dog and helped them function. Not only is the family devastated by her loss, but her owners don’t have their helper.

Rescuers rounded up the pit bulls and are hoping they can be rehabilitated and adopted out. While a couple rescuers showed genuine concern, most only showed passing concern for Sadie and her family.

Six pit bulls that killed Sadie at CACC

Even though the Chicago Police Department and Chicago Animal Care and Control were involved, the media did not pick up this story which is a shame because the publicity might have brought help to the elderly couple.
