    I would too. But of course if it were me, I'd be keeping that on the down low.

    My friend and his dog were attacked by a pit bull, and he and the pit bull's owner got into a fight.

    My friend was going to swear out a warrant for the guy's arrest, but he skipped town.

    Would you feel the same if you found out the pit bull was one of Michael Vick's tortured dogs? Or some dog that had been beaten and abused by it's owner? Made to fight other dogs or be killed himself?

    Sounds like the ex marine had no choice and did what he had to do to rescue his own dogs. I'd do the same myself to save my dog if she was being seriously attacked and injured by a bigger dog.

    But most likely that pit bull did not "deserve" to be stabbed to death. Dogs that attack and kill other dogs have been abused and/or neglected and have already suffered enough in their sad lives.

    It was necessary to kill him and apparently there was no better method available but he did not "deserve" to die a painful death.

    Would you say the same if it was a Golden Retriever instead of a pit bull?

    "Despite the ordeal, the Perrys were sorry that the animal had to die.

    "I hated that I had to stab that dog," Douglas Perry told the paper. “It just wouldn't let go, and I saw no other choice."

    I agree. Pit Bulls aren't mean by nature. I have a friend that has two Pit Bulls, and the larger of the two, the male, is just a big marsh mellow. Of course he has a loving and caring owner. The dog might LICK you to death, but he sure isn't going to BITE you. The female is a little hyper but another really nice dog as well. They're good dogs because their owner isn't mean to them. Condemning a Pit Bull just because they're a Pit Bull is malarkey.

    The Pit Bull in the story was taught to be mean and attack by somebody, and that's the real tragedy in this story. That person should be included in any legal action for the death of the dog.
