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.

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.

Ukrainian troops on Friday destroyed part of what Kiev says was a Russian armored convoy that crossed into Ukraine around the same time as a truck convoy of humanitarian aid reached the border, according to Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko´s. Poroshenko informed British Prime Minister David Cameron in a telephone call that a "significant" part of the Russian armored column had been destroyed, according to the Ukrainian leader´s website.

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - Another 130 U.S. troops arrived in Iraq on Tuesday on what the Pentagon described as a temporary mission to assess the scope of the humanitarian crisis facing thousands of displaced Iraqi civilians trapped on Sinjar Mountain and evaluate options for getting them out to safety. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the deployment in remarks to Marines at this Southern California base on the final stop of a weeklong, around-the-world trip that also took him to India, Germany and Australia. "This is not a combat boots on the ground kind of operation," Hagel said. "We´re not going back

Iraq militants changing tactics,

Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq appear to be shifting tactics in the face of the newly launched U.S. airstrike campaign, Defense officials say, posing a new challenge to the Obama administration as it seeks to at least slow the terrorists’ advances. According to officials, until now the Islamic State (IS) was behaving like a well-organized army, moving with strategic intent and pursuing military objectives. Now, officials are seeing at least a partial shift to classic insurgency tactics, as militants begin to blend in among the population, making targeting more difficult. “One of the things that we have seen with

FERGUSON, Mo.- The Rev. Al Sharpton says the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by a St. Louis-area police officer is “very disturbing,” and the civil-rights leader is planning a visit to that suburb to make that known. Sharpton says he’s spoken with a grandfather of Michael Brown and plans to meet with the family in person Monday night or Tuesday in Ferguson. That’s where St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the shooting happened Saturday afternoon after an officer scuffled with one of two men. Brown was shot multiple times and died, though the investigation continues.

President Obama doesn’t have much of a plan, but neither does anybody else. Proceed with caution. Obama’s initial response to the rise and deadly spread of an extremist militant group in Iraq and Syria is full of holes. It is doubtful that American airstrikes will be enough to sufficiently turn back the Islamist insurgents. It is doubtful that airstrikes alone will be enough to secure an escape path for all 20,000 Yazidis, a religious minority group still under siege on a barren mountaintop. It is even questionable whether the one major condition Obama has placed on further U.S. military support

There was an eerie flashback to 1965 in parts of the St. Louis region Sunday. Riot gear. Tear gas. German shepherds. Looting. Stores on fire. Dozens arrested. It was the violent aftermath of a violent encounter the day before between a police officer and teenager Mike Brown, who was killed. On this very same night that Ferguson boiled over, the Watts riots had burned in Los Angeles nearly 50 years prior. It´s hard to explain race relations within the St. Louis metro area to those who have never lived here. It´s even harder to make sense of it for children

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Monday that he was sending an aid convoy to eastern Ukraine on a humanitarian mission in which the International Committee of the Red Cross and Western governments were cooperating. (Snip) As the Kremlin pressed its insistence on coming to the aid of the Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine communities, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen repeated warnings that Russian troop movements around Ukraine´s eastern border suggested a "high probability" that Moscow was preparing to invade. Borroso´s initial statement on his conversation with Poroshenko said only that the two had "discussed a proposal for humanitarian relief for eastern Ukraine."

The American airstrikes against a militant group in Iraq could motivate the fighters to retaliate with terror attacks against U.S. civilians, experts warn. (Snip) ISIS has long threatened America openly. In June the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, warned Americans that “soon enough, you will be in direct confrontation [with us].” Last week a spokesman for the group vowed that “we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.” Despite that bombastic rhetoric, ISIS has thus far been consumed with its fights in Iraq and Syria, and with capturing territory to form an Islamic caliphate.

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined
