A female jogger has died after being attacked by four pit bulls in Los Angeles.

Pamela Devitt, 62, died from her wounds on the way to hospital.

Authorities are warning people in Littlerock, about 40 miles (65km) northeast of the city of Los Angeles to be on the lookout for four pit bulls - they have seized several dogs in a search for those who may have taken part in the attack.

Ugh. What a way to go... :unsure2:

Poor woman, hope they find the dogs responsible because they will probably do it again.

People need to stop dumping dogs.  If you don't want a bunch of pups get your dog fixed.

I know. We live out here in the country, and for some reason people love to dump off dogs on our country roads. :no:

I have no problem with destroying all pit-bulls in the country and banning them moving forward.

Oh that is horrible, that poor woman!

Here in the UK, Pit Bulls are banned as part of the dangerous dogs act.  I know people question the Staffordshire Bull Terrier too.  Personally I have only ever been attacked by one dog and it was a Staffy.  However, I also have friends who have Staffies who seem very soft and gentle.

I guess at the end of the day, dogs are animals.  They can be unpredictable and descend from wolves.  Any dog can bite or attack, I guess with "bull" type dogs, they are just so strong with powerful jaws that the results can be fatal.

I would never leave my kids unattended with any dog, even my sisters mini Yorkshire Terrier.  They are animals and don't always react how we expect them to.

I would enjoy seeing the pictures of these "pitbulls." Colorado went through a spat of "pit bull" attacks and come to find out, these "vicious attacking pit's" were actually all a different breed. One case was Boxers, One was American Bull Dogs, and the others were simply muts that looked NOTHING like pit bulls. However, the minute someone is attacked and the dog has the SLIGHTEST resemblance of a "pit" they are deemed a pit bull.

I've bread, and raised pit bulls my entire life, and am wanting to buy another set here shortly as I've missed the company of these amazingly smart, talented, most loyal and gentle dogs I've ever seen. Statistical fact, more dog bites happen by Golden Retrievers than by Pit Bulls 10:1. That number raises extremely high when it comes to even smaller breeds.

may be, however if you compare damage they do, when they attack, the ratio will be diferent.

should we also let you destroy our guns too?? and ban them while you there??

me myself and many ppl i know would have lots of problems with it.

however i would have no problems making owners responsible for damage their dogs did, as if the damage was done by the owners themselves. your dogs killed someone, see you in 25 years.

Why would I want to ban guns?  My guns have never bitten anyone...

No doubt these were owned/once owned by some "gangsta" in an attempt to look hard. Which is pretty much always the case.

I'd ban owners who abandon animals like that personally. And I'm not a "pet person".

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Every dog is capable of this, after all they are predatory animals. We have just domesticated them.

The Pitbull can be the nicest and kindest and most gentlest dog you can have. I have met many Pit Bulls that all they want to do is get love and affection.

You can either raise a nice dog, or you can raise an angry dog. It's up to the owner. However if it is a roving pack of feral dogs, that's another story.

How many other dogs has your pit bull bit?  Be honest.
