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.

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.

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

A laptop allegedly seized from an Isis (also known as Islamic State) base in Syria contains plans to launch devastating terror attacks harnessing the bubonic plague. (Snip) A 19-page document outlines plans to weaponise the bubonic plague from infected animals. It describes how to safely test diseases to be used in terror attacks. "When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours," the document explains. It also contains a 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, proclaiming the use of chemical weapons to be acceptable against kafirs, or non-believers.

FERGUSON, Mo. - Michael Brown Jr. was on the verge of starting college, eager to launch himself into the adult world. Instead, on Monday he´ll be mourned at his funeral, more than two weeks after his fatal shooting by a white police officer- an act that ignited days of violent protests and reawakened racial tensions that still linger in the nation. Brown, who was unarmed when he was killed, became an instant symbol of racial injustice as protesters flooded into the streets after his death. Civil rights leaders said the shooting in this predominantly black St. Louis suburb revived long

SEATTLE — Mark Driscoll has long been an evangelical bad boy, a gifted orator and charismatic leader who built one of the nation’s most influential megachurches despite, or perhaps fueled by, a foul mouth, a sharp temper and frank talk about sex. (Snip) But now Mr. Driscoll’s empire appears to be imploding. He has been accused of creating a culture of fear at the church, of plagiarizing, of inappropriately using church funds and of consolidating power to such a degree that it has become difficult for anyone to challenge or even question him.

How do you deal with a hideous terrorist group that has morphed into a Mideast state with a huge war chest and an aggressive army - and beheads an American journalist?

President Obama appears wedded to a strategy of containment - so far.

In his remarks on the murder of James Foley, the American journalist decapitated by the terrorists of ISIS, President Obama condemned Foley’s killers, appropriately, as a “cancer” on the Middle East and the world. But he also found room for the most Obama-ish of condemnations: “One thing we can all agree on,” he insisted, is that the would-be caliphate’s murderous vision has “no place in the 21st century.” The idea that America’s foes and rivals are not merely morally but chronologically deficient, confused time travelers who need to turn their DeLorean around, has long been a staple of this administration’s

The name of the militant Islamic group ISIS is probably one of the most reviled names in the country at the moment. It is also the name of a defunct post-metal rock band with the same name that is getting "off color comments" on its Facebook page. The rockers may be hard to confuse with Islamic militants, but some have managed it. (Snip) Though the band is no longer together, the ex-members are being inundated with posts from individuals who believe they are associated with the Islamic terrorist group, which recently claimed responsibility for beheading American journalist James Foley.

Longtime friends and fellow Chicagoans, Obama and Patrick routinely break bread during the First Family’s annual Vineyard vacations.

Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

The St. Louis Rams released defensive end Michael Sam on Saturday, the team announced. Sam´s efforts to become the first openly gay player in NFL history came up just short in a competition against undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks. Sam had a team-high six tackles in the Rams´ final preseason game but didn´t make the 53-man roster. Westbrooks is one of nine defensive linemen to land a roster spot. Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have
