Bullhead City former mayor,
husband attacked by dogs

The Republic [Arizona], by Jackee Coe

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 12/30/2013 10:10:24 AM

A former mayor of Bullhead City was hospitalized and her husband died after they were attacked by their pet dogs, according to the current mayor. Former Mayor Diane Vick and her husband, Tom, tried to intervene after one of their pit bulls attacked one of their smaller dogs, but the dogs attacked them, Mayor Jack Hakim said. They were flown to a hospital in Las Vegas. Tom Vick, who taught social studies at Mohave High School, died of his injuries on Sunday morning, Hakim said. Diane Vick “was pretty well beat up,” but Hakim didn’t think her injuries were critical.

Comments:
Current Bullhead City mayor refers to "dog bites". Bit of an understatement if you ask me. Gruesome.

"after one of their pit bulls attacked"

Kinda says it all, doesn´t it? I know, I know. Its the owner, not the dog....blah blah. Interesting that these "oh so gentle" pit bulls always seem to be at the center of these tragedies.

Hmmmm... I was just there a couple of days ago as I own property there. It´s "snowbird" country adjacent to the riverside casinos of Laughlin, NV.

Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are the breed of choice for many Bullhead City residents. They are used for protection. Here in Northern California the breeds of choice are fortunately more docile (i.e. Labradors). Sad story.

Pit bull lovers lecture us that they are no more aggressive than other breeds. Problem is their jaw strength exceeds chihuahua´s. I feel for these two but it was their decision to treat a dangerous animal as a pet. As long as dogs stay off my property I don´t care. But if an aggressive mutt comes into my yard to attack me its getting pepper spray.

I read somewhere that German shepherds bite more people than any other breed -- but since they are used in police and security work, that makes sense.

But pit bulls killed more people than any other breed.

Pit bulls don´t attack, they maul. Their method of killing makes them different from any other dog breed.

And, trust me, pepper spray wouldn´t slow one down for a second. It usually takes eight or nine bullets, at least.

Echo to #5. My older brother was bitten in the face by a pit bull mix. The local animal control officer was called, who then immediately called for state police. The SP responded by shooting the dog - - SIX times to put it down. (Caveat: 9mm was used).

We´ve had our pit bull for 8 years. She is the sweetest dog we´ve ever had and she´s super smart. She cuddles with our cats and our greyhounds and sleeps with us. Maybe it´s because she´s been raised with love or maybe it´s because she´s female and therefore not aggressive. Whatever, she´s a wonderful dog.

Very unfortunately up where we are in Norcal, pit bulls are prevalent, mainly because we have a large drug culture and we are in the "green triangle" for pot growing (aren´t we lucky). You go to the animal shelter, 90% pitts and rotts. Not fans of either of those breeds. And yes, I´ve known sweet examples of each breed. Wouldn´t have either on a bet.

I had neighbors who had a pit bull that loved me and thought my lap was the greatest place in the world to sit. I was afraid to push her off, and had to ask the owners to get her off of me after she got too heavy (usually around 10 minutes was all I could stand). She was a very friendly dog, but she did some real damage to a burglar at their house once - she broke her chain to get him, and there was a trail of blood in the back yard, over the fence and down a path behind the house.

They can be very gentle, especially with kids, but then for unknown reasons they snap and you have dead child.

I wish you continued good luck.

The boxer attacked the couple.


Article mentions boxer twice and cocker spaniel once and pit bull not at all.
But I have noticed that these days reporters will fill in their ´own´ thinking if they don´t have actual available facts.
And a boxer is quite capable of doing grave damage to a human body.

Sad occurrence they were evidently dog lovers having that many dogs.
May the gentleman RIP

The problem isn´t with the breed so much as the pack mentality, just as with humans. Even docile dogs (and people) can get riled up by the actions of others in the pack, and there is always a struggle to establish a order of dominance. Having several large dogs together unconfined, unless from the same batch, is an invitation to disaster. I´m so sorry to hear of what happened to #6, and she should definitely track the person responsible down. A person should never have more dogs on a leash than they can control.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families.

"We look forward to increasing the number of great teachers who are in our classrooms and who are also role models for children who have similar cultural backgrounds and life experiences," Tom Boasberg, superintendent of Denver Public Schools, said.

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

US trade deficit hits $42.3 billion in February

The U.S. trade deficit climbed to the highest level in five months in February as demand for American exports fell while imports increased slightly. The deficit increased to $42.3 billion, which was 7.7 percent above the January imbalance of $39.3 billion, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. (Snip) The administration is negotiating one trade agreement with Japan and 10 other Pacific nations. The other agreement would be a trans-Atlantic deal with the 28-nation European Union. The deals would lower trade barriers and are seen by supporters as a good way to boost U.S. export sales. But critics, including many labor unions,

NEW YORK- CBS News says an editor made an "audio error" in dubbing the sound of a loud traditional car engine over footage of the much quieter Tesla electric car in a story that aired Sunday. Spokesman Kevin Tedesco said Tuesday that the loud car audio has been edited out of the online version of the story on Tesla founder Elon Musk.

Before it releases the prisoners, Israel wants to be assured Abbas won´t abandon the U.S.-brokered talks, which resumed last July after a three-year break. Having initially

As further proof the NFL never is far from the headlines, owners could make plenty of news this week at their spring meetings. They will consider 13 playing rules proposals and seven bylaws. They will discuss expanding the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams, although a vote on such a move is uncertain. Some changes would seem to be slam dunks: extending the height of the goal posts 5 feet to help determine if kicks are good; eliminating overtime in preseason games; placing fixed TV cameras on the goal lines, end lines and sidelines to help with replay reviews.

Prices are rising for a range of food staples, from meat and pork to fruits and vegetables, squeezing consumers still struggling with modest wage gains. Food prices rose 0.4% in February, the most since September 2011, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Tuesday. Beef and veal shoppers were socked with some of the biggest increases, as prices jumped 4% from January. Overall inflation remained tame, as falling gasoline and other energy costs offset the food price increases. The consumer price index ticked up just 0.1% from January and 1.1% in the past year.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses.

Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
