Another pit bull takes a kid’s life
LINK
A Michigan family is grieving as police investigate what caused a dog to attack and kill a 4-year-old boy, reports say.

Shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday, law enforcement responded to a 911 call from a 14-year-old girl who told officials a dog was attacking her brother Benjamin Cobb while her mother attempted to stop it, according to an article in the Detroit Free Press.

“The mom was in the room at the same time,” Hazel Park Police Chief Brian Buchholz told local reporters. “She heard a low growl, turned and the attack was already happening.”
The boy’s mother attempted to stop the attack by stabbing the 60-pound pit bull with scissors and a kitchen knife, according to a report from local news station WXYZ-9, but the boy died from his injuries.

Law enforcement used a taser on the dog and it ran out of the house. Eventually the dog was euthanized, according to the news station.

The family established a GoFundMe account to help with costs of the memorial and other expenses. According to the site, the family released a statement.

“On October 29,2019, we experienced a families worst nightmare when a dog took the life of Benjamin. No words can ever explain the depth of our love for him,” the family stated. “This has taken an unimaginable toll on our family, friends, and all those who knew our sweet boy.”

According to news radio station WWJ, the family had agreed to take care of the dog for a friend. The dog had been with the family for one day, the station reports.

“I can’t imagine what they’re going through. This is a tragedy and a traumatic, horrific event. It was hard for our firefighters and officers to respond to,” Buchholz told the radio station’s reporter. “Being a part of the family, the mother or a sister to the victim, I can’t imagine what they’re going through.”

On Wednesday, the department released a statement to the newspaper and called the situation “tragic.”

“A preliminary finding appears that this case was a tragic incident,” police stated in an email to the Free Press. “The Hazel Park Police Department extends its sympathy to the family and friends of the deceased.”

We need a genocide on pit bulls and be done with them once and for all.

They didn't deserve what happened to them, but this is a stupid move.

Put your kids first for god's sakes.

Pit Bulls seem like one of the more popular breeds here in the 2019 USA.

Says a lot about us, IMHO.

re: Another pit bull takes a kid’s life
this also another quote from them

quote:

On October 29, 2019, we experienced a family’s worst nightmare when a dog took the life of Benjamin. No words can ever explain the depth of our love for him. This has taken an unimaginable toll on our family, friends, and those who knew our sweet boy. A kind gesture to help a friend in a time of need, for a dog that was said to have never shown aggressive behaviors has turned into a horrifying loss for our family. We have learned that we are far from alone in our struggle, as diligent and loving parents from all walks of life have suffered this catastrophic loss under similar horrifying circumstances.


not worth it

Never trust a pit bull regardless of what people say.

I heard the dog was planning on going to obedience school. Too bad the system got the best of him.

re: Another pit bull takes a kid’s life
even if the pit had never show aggression before, taking it out of its normal environment and away from its alpha (owner) is a stupid move.

re: Another pit bull takes a kid’s life
All breeds of dogs bite. However, when other dogs bite you, the wound gets cleaned, you get a tetanus shot, and go on with your life. When a Pit Bull attacks you, you end up in the operating room or the morgue. Some idiots say that only the ones that were trained to fight will attack. B.S. All dog breeds bite. And there are many known cases of Pits that were never trained to fight that have killed kids. Pit Bull owners are complete idiots. If you disagree, please, tell me why I am wrong.

I’ll never agree with shite like this.

Parent 1: “Our kid just died!”

Parent 2: “Did you set up a GoFoundMe?”

Comic book super hero idea: masked vigilante whose entire family was murdered by pit bulls and now seeks vengeance in the night by tracking the breed down and gruesomely killing them.

It's simple really, you chose a pitbull as a family pet. Probably not enough brain power to think that through though, and your child paid the price. RIP innocent one.

ETA: just spoke out of my ass:

Not a family pet, doing a favor for friends. frick me, I can't imagine. Still, point stays the same, frick that breed, don't let them around your children regardless.

Imagine how the people who actually own the dog must feel. Asked them to watch their dog and he ends up killing their little boy. Sad sad sad.
