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.

Tiny Qatar plays outsize

WASHINGTON — Just miles (kilometers) from where former Guantanamo Bay terror suspects have resettled, American warplanes take off from Qatar´s al-Udeid air base in the global war on extremism. The contrast in images illustrates why tiny but rich Qatar is an intriguing player in what President Barack Obama says will be a long battle to stop and eventually destroy the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria. Qatar plays an outsize role as a U.S. military partner. It gained public praise from Obama for brokering the controversial deal that freed Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from Taliban captivity in May in

Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they lack confidence that the U.S. will achieve its goals in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll. The findings come in the wake of President Barack Obama’s national address announcing new measures to combat the Sunni militants. Pressure is mounting on the U.S. and its allies to cripple the militants, who have waged a brutal campaign across Syria and Iraq. ISIS already has beheaded two American journalists and on Saturday released a video showing the execution of a third Westerner, British aid worker David Haines. The

When it comes to politics, Costco Wholesale has a well-deserved reputation as a Democratic-leaning corporation. Company co-founders Jim Sinegal and Jeffrey Brotman have hosted President Obama at fundraisers in their lakefront mansions. Costco executives have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and causes over the past decade. But in the key battle for control of the state Senate this year, top Costco brass — miffed at Democrats over a liquor-fee dispute — have essentially switched sides, backing the Republican Party’s efforts to maintain and expand its majority coalition. Employees and executives of the Issaquah-based retailer have donated

In addition, the source added guard forces around the hostages doubled while widely publicized reporting about the scope of new aerial surveillance in the region caused ISIS to change its pattern of behavior on the ground.

Republican David Perdue leads Democrat Michelle Nunn in a new independent survey of the Georgia Senate race, the second this week to give him the edge. Perdue takes 45 percent to Nunn’s 41 percent, while libertarian Amanda Swafford takes 6 percent support and another 6 percent remain undecided in the new poll of likely voters, conducted for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Another poll out this week, from SurveyUSA, gave Perdue a 3-point lead. Most polling has shown the race tight, though Democrats remain optimistic Nunn can overcome the red lean of the state and Obama’s deep unpopularity there this fall. Nunn

If we’ve learned anything about fighting terrorism in the 13 years since the Sept. 11 attacks, it’s this: Keep the hubris and the expectations in check. (Snip) The goal under President George W.

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

Washington — President Obama’s speech Wednesday on the growing threat from Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria represents a major test of his leadership. It’s being billed as an address to the nation, but it will reach far beyond that. Mr. Obama will be speaking foremost to the American people –Democrats, Republicans, and independents – in the heat of the midterm campaign. And it comes at a time of heightened sensitivity to terrorism, the eve of the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and the second anniversary of the attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder.
