Sorry about the scan quality....
No, if a guy lets potentially lethal animals loose on the public, even by accident, he has to be taught a lesson so he won't ever do it again. I'm sure he'll be replacing the latches on his fences and doors after this.
I agree strongly, and so will most parents. These are pit bulls here, known for being aggressive and unpredictable. We're not talkin lap dogs here.
I guess I am on the fence (no pun intended) on this.
As an former owner of dogs (Tim won't let me have one), I know that most dogs in general, aren't stupid. If they want to get out, they will find a way. It is up to the owner to prevent escape, however, occasionally, an animal will get out despite the prevention measures. Most dog breeds can be trained to stay in the yard without barriers. Some dog breeds just can't be. Escapes happen. Sometimes well before an owner notices. It has happened to me a few times. My dog Simba (may he rest in peace), would literally chew through a chain link dog kennel as a young dog. I am not kidding you. But he was eventually trained to stay in the yard prior to it being fenced. He was not dangerous in the least, but his size made him look like it. He was 1/2 German Shepherd, 1/2 ChowChow, and the color of wheat-he looked like a lion.
Now, the article looks like it says this is not the first time they have gotten loose, but I can't tell because it doesn't say it outright. If this is not the first time, and these dogs are dangerous, then the fine is justified. Just imagine the cost of one of the dogs biting/attacking other peoples pets, or even kids.
No it wasn't the first time, and these were Pit Bulls trained to attack..The guy had a web site with pics of them attacking, training, he said it was a game. There is much more in the article too..I just didn't scan it..
BTW...this was the Max fine the Judge could impose.
Well then, do bad he couldn't have fined him more, these dogs could have mauled/killed a child.
By the way, do you think the judge was wrong??
Dogs belong on leashes any time they're outside.. Fenced in yard, or not..
Anything can happen.
First the Judge was a she..Second, she's my wife, it wouldn't be smart to say I think she was wrong. ..But honestly, I think she was right.
i think she was right also. not jsut casue they were pits, cause i think pits can be trained as well as any other canine species. but because they were trained to attack for the most part.
everyone see "pitbull" and automatically think killer. but headlines will sell if its something to the effect of "pits maul..." not if it was a cocker, or chihuahua youd never hear about it.
Well, they were bread to be killers.
