That is very sad. My prayers are with them at this time. I hope they are OK.

Hate to hear that.  Is there a link to the story?  I think one problem with Pit Bulls is so many owners chain them out, lock them in the basement, or fence them in and never socialize them - how come more poodles or jack russells aren't treated the same way - betcha there would be a whole lot more kids mauled by other breeds if they were treated like many Pit Bulls are.  So sad, for the people attacked, for the dog, and for the breed.

OK wait a minute dog is on a chain  in the back yard  and child was out side  Question WHERE THE HELL WAS THE MOTHER????

 

I get so tried of hearing these stories. Yes it is VERY SAD for the Child (my heart does go out from them ) but these parents are STUPID

This is a dog - four leggs , tail and a mouth full of teeth. The dog is about (guessing here) 22 inchs and the four year old is just a little taller (maybe) Can we say Alphaness specially if the kid is tring to get on the back of the dog like most of them do!

Or wait lets see the dog is on a chain PROTECTING the tree or maybe the fence (not done yet) and the only time it get any human contact is when food and water is brought out. So he is excited to see the kid , dog wraps around the child, child falls and starts making weird sounds AGAIN WHERE IS THE MOTHER????

IF you need to Chain your dog then you don't need a dog. Dogs do not need to protect a tree, fence post or anything being chained to. It needs to be with it pack.

Pits are not bad dogs  STUPID OWNERS make them bad, just like the Rotties and the Shepherds.

The parents should be brought up on charges.

Very sad. I hope they will be alright. I agree parents need to supervise their kids alot better when messing with any dogs, probably even the family pet, oops excuse me especially even the family pet. Kids need to know how to behave with animals, not saying this was the case but some kids are aloud to torment pets. Some won't take it at all, some may for awhile but eventually will get sick of it and the consequenses are not usually pretty.

Maybe it would help if people with little children didn't have pitbulls

I wonder if it was that families dog or a neighbor who tried to confine their dog and the kid walked into the neighbors yard.  That has happened around here with bad results.

I hope the mother and son recover.
