    "The attack happened in the living room of the house and appears to be unprovoked, according to the sheriff’s office."

    Impossible. That 13 month old boy had to have been tormenting that poor pit bull dog beyond what it could stand. The dog was only acting in self defense.

    And the Pit apologists will be saying:

    "Who says it is a Pit?" "Show me the breed standards for a Pit..." yadda, yadda, yadda...…..

    Tragic, but there have been 11 deaths that the AKC has reported since June... The Breed of Peace is going to eventually get the attention of the population and be bred out of existence.

    A baby died.
    It has nothing to do with politics.

    It the dog really mauled the baby for no reason it should b put down pronto. If the parents are found to be negligent, I won't be too quick to say prosecute due to the circumstances...

    I would never own a crazy vicious dog under any circumstances. I have way too much to lose. That's why I own Whitey. Incredibly strong, absolutely worthless as any kind of watchdog.

    This is not that hard to understand. The problem is the same as always. You do not have to like something to understand it is true. The opposite is also true - if you like the way something sounds, that does not make it true. The important thing is to have objective intelligence, which has lost out recently to social media among others.

    Creatures have a nature that is in their unique DNA. My opinion is that environment or nurture is more meaningful to behavior than is nature.

    But...nature is in there, and it will come out eventually. Enough said.

    Yep. I knew that, for some people, this little dude is merely another data point; that the issue cleanly settled.

    I hope that where he's going, this baby won't have to worry about being mauled to death by a not-a-pit-bull.

    That would actually make more sense. The story was limited on information. A yr old left alone with any animal? Some people should never own pets, or have kids. I suspect there were clear warning signs before. Sad the child had to suffer, die because of parents.

    The "no such dog as a pit bull" idiots crack me up, and are about as useless as the "no such gun as an assault rifle" morons; neither of these responses win any converts.

    At 13 months it is probably not safe to leave alone with almost any breed. 13 month olds are grabby, and have enough strength to hurt a dog, and they have a really irritating cry. I would not be surprised if the dog was left in a playpen with the baby. Baby gabbing, crying and the dog cannot get away. Add to that a dog likely there before the baby, so thinks it is superior in the pecking order to the baby. All a recipe for a disaster.

    All dogs must be acclimated to the family, to establish their place in the pecking order. That would be below every family member. Then they know their job is to alert and protect the family.

    Pits and large dogs are a danger because they have strong bite strength and sharp teeth. Some are worse because they have strong to not let go or allow their quarry to escape. They are animals.
