Pit Bulls reportedly attack pet in carport


OXFORD, Ga. – A 12-year-old Jack Russell Terrier was reportedly attacked and killed by two Pit Bulls at a house in Oxford Sunday morning.

According to a Newton County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) incident report, a Keel Street resident told the responding deputy that on May 21 the two dogs, one black and one a brindle color, attacked the pet while it was in the carport. The owner told the deputy she took her dog to the Emergency Animal Clinic on Highway 278, but they were unable to save the dog.

The complainant told the deputy she does not know who the two Pit Bulls belong to.

Pitbulls are some intelligent and friendly dogs. Bad breeding and how they are raised affects the disposition of any breed of dogs. just like humans, If you teach a child to hate others, thats exactly what that child will do. Anyone who generalize this breed of dogs are Stereotypical and ignorant of seeing past the media hype.

Pointers going to point, retrievers going to retrieve, pit bulls going to kill, it is all instincts they are born with after countless generations of breeding for those traits. In the US a pit bull kills a person every 17 days. Stats don't lie. Pit bulls are weapons that can pull their own trigger. They are ticking time-bombs.
