Toddler mauled trying to hug pit bull dog
KUSA-TV [Denver, CO], by Janet Oravetz

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/14/2014 4:56:20 PM

A 19-month-old boy was attacked by a pit bull in a parking lot in Commerce City, Colo., police said. Investigators said the 90-pound dog was tethered to a pole when the attack happened around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. They said the boy was trying to give the dog a hug when it mauled his neck and face. "The child went to give the dog a hug, and it latched onto his face," Commerce City police spokesman Chris Dickey told the Denver Post. The child suffered severe facial injuries, but was expected to survive. Police said the dog's owner is a transient who was present at the time of the attack.

Comments:
Awful event. Toddler badly mauled, dog is dead, and parents are not mentioned.

Pit Bulls should be banned everywhere. Plenty of other breeds.

Perhaps toddlers would do better with parental supervision. It´s not about pit bulls--you don´t "hug" any strange dog...

I have 2 Cocker Spaniels, both rescues. One I have had 7 years, the other 4 years. They are not use to children. When children want to touch them as I walk them on leash, I ask them politely not to touch my dogs because I just don´t know their reaction. Both of my dogs are fixed. I believe fixed dogs are less likely to bite, but you never know. I know 2 Pit Bull males, both fixed, sweet as heck, but those massive heads and jaws on them are intimidating!

I have no use for pit bulls or Rotweillers. These animals are nothing more than you-know-what extenders.

God put my pit bull mix in my life when she was 7 weeks old. She´s now 8 years old. She´s extremely passive but not use to children. I am extremely cautious with her around kids.

NO child should go up to any dog and try to hug it. It is on par with hugging a stranger who is human.

The parents were at fault for not "training" their child.

My adorable miniature white Schnauzer would have reacted in the very same way. Like previous posters, I keep him away from children and really anyone he doesn´t know. He doesn´t have the same capacity for violent damage as a pit bull, though. I like dogs a lot, always had a mutt around as a child. But frankly I would be very reluctant today to have any dog in a home with a young child.

The pit bulls I know/have known are all far more sweet and cuddly than my Beastie boy. Still, I would take precautions with children around them.

Pit bulls, if properly raised, make awesome pets. Ours is the sweetest dog we´ve ever had. She cuddles with our two greyhounds and our cats and loves to hang out with our horses. The owners are the problem and if the dog´s owner was a transient, he may have trained the dog to be protective.

What kind of parent lets a 4 year old wander up and hug a strange dog? I always ask an owner if his dog is friendly before approaching with the back of my hand extended and I let the dog smell me first. I´ve only been bitten once - by a miniature daschund.

The victim was 19 months old. Not even two. Blame the parents for not being there when it happened, but no child of that age will learn respect for strange animals.

What a horrible thing to happen. It´s interesting that the article says that Commerce City bans pit bulls. The question needs to be asked as to why the dog was there in the first place. One also wonders about parental supervision of young children.

Little kids are completely fascinated with doggies. We have a golden retriever, but I hold on to him with a very short leash and make him sit when a little one wants to pet him. He´s very sweet, but big and strong with sharp nails and a mouthful of teeth. What if something were to startle him at the moment of encounter? Parents, hang on to your little ones around doggies and always ask if they can pet him.

It gets so tiresome to hear the words "pit bulls are sweet and cuddly if they are trained right". They are nasty ugly looking things and for the life of me I can´t understand why anyone would want one the nasty ugly things. Sweet and cuddly my wrinkled butt.

Commerce City is predominantly hispanic. The largest high school there is at least 75 percent hispanic. The article stated the owner of the pit bull is a transient. My stereotypes are out of control.

Two years ago a ´lovely´ family rented a house on our street that the owner couldn´t sell.

One Saturday afternoon, as I walked my 30 pound shelter rescue guy in front of my house, their sweet, cuddly pit bull tore out their front door and faster than anything you could ever imagine had my Tolliver on the ground with his throat ripped open.

It took every bit of strength and courage I´ve ever summoned, along with a legion of guardian angels, to keep him on the ground so the pit couldn´t rip him to shreds before help in the form of five Marines, working in a yard nearby, could get the pit to release him.

My knees and back were torn to bits in the struggle, and I have permanent nerve damage from punching that brick wall of a head for three minutes straight.

Take your pit bull and you know what. To a huge extent it ruined my life and sense of safety forever.

Don´t even think about telling me how wonderful those monsters are!

#6, a neighbor´s "adorable white schnauzer" jumped up and attacked one of my children who happened to walk by, leaving a nasty bite on the thigh. The child had done nothing to even acknowledge the dog. I later learned this wasn´t the first time the dog bit someone. You are smart to watch carefully.

A friend´s pitbull is a lovely animal, but her head and jaws are so massive, and her body size so large, that I´m always rather cautious around her.

Never forget that dogs are animals and can be unpredictable.

Last post, but this is obviously a topic I have strong feelings about. There is a difference between dogs that will bite, and dogs that latch on to the throat and maul until the prey is dead. Pit bulls and Rotweillers fall into the second category.

If any of you pit haters find yourself in southern Oklahoma shoot me an email and I will meet you at either Winstar Casino parking lot on I35 or the Choctaw Casino on US 75/69 with what has been described as "the most submissive dog" who happens to be pit bull mix. Warning: she will want her ears scratched.

The neighbors had a white rabbit in a cage and she saw it from our back yard. She rested on her belly and just stared at it. I checked but she wasn´t drooling.

WASHINGTON – Has President Barack Obama “checked out”? It’s one thing if hardened critics like Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly ask whether the Obama presidency is “imploding,” as she did last month , citing a string of foreign policy debacles and domestic scandals. Or if Republican lobbyist Ed Rogers says Obama “seems to have taken something like an early retirement,” as he did in his Washington Post blog earlier this month, finding that the president’s recent speeches reveal “a state of mind that suggests he has checked out.” It is another, however, if the chief U.S. commentator for the Financial Times,

The network interviewed angry residents in the segment, many of whom weren´t very sensitive to the police officer´s death. “We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a

Washington — Is racial animosity behind some political criticism of the Obama administration? That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday. The exact phrase he used was “racial animus,” which he said motivates some of his and Obama’s political opponents. (Snip) At the right-leaning "Hot Air!" Noah Rothman used even tougher language. The Obama administration long ago perfected the art of cultivating the sense among its defenders that lingering racism inspires most of its critics, according to Mr. Rothman. If the US was still so racially sensitive, why did it reelect an African-American president?

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has now controlled much of Iraq for over a month. The group has been prolific in its abuses even during this brief reign of cruelty: In recent weeks it´s crucified its opponents in Syria, executed scores of police officers in northern Iraq, threatened archaeological sites, and even destroyed hookah tobacco. This over-the-top brutality is a reflection of ISIS founder Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, once one of the world´s most notorious terrorists.

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book.
