Two Vicious Pit Bulls Kill Third Dog in Gilroy

The owner of the two dogs released the animals for euthanasia.

Contributed by the Gilroy Police Department:

On Nov. 27 at 1:10 p.m., Gilroy Police Department Patrol and Animal Control Officers responded to the 7600 block of Rosanna Street on a report of a dog attack.

It was reported that two Pit Bull-type dogs were attacking another dog in a backyard. Animal Control Officers on scene were able to chemically capture both of the aggressor dogs. The investigation revealed that both dogs killed one dog; one cat, and injured two other dogs.

The owner of both dogs is also the owner of the dog that was killed. Both dogs were immediately deemed level three dangerous/vicious dogs and were surrendered by the owner to be euthanized per city ordinance. The aggressor dogs involved in this incident are not the same dogs involved in the prior dog attack reporter earlier this month.

This incident is being actively investigated by the department’s animal control officer. All parties involved have been contacted. Dog owners are reminded to ensure familiarization with all dog-related city ordinances.

All dogs must be leashed while on city streets and sidewalks. All dog owners are also reminded to properly secure dog enclosures. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Gilroy Police Department at 408-846-0350.

In order for pits to become THE fighting dog, normal dog communication and behavior needed to be changed. Using selective breeding, dogmen developed the abilities and instinct to win dogfights: to attack without reason (off territory, not guarding a resource) to attack without warning or without trying to avoid a confrontation (surprise attacks won dog fights; dogs who stood calmly before fights saved energy.) to not stop even if the victim submits/yelps/says uncle (normal dogs stop fighting, often without severe injury, if one submits) to not stop even after suffering severe injury (stabbing won't stop some pits) to not let go. (this trait necessitated the invention of "break sticks" to pry open the pits' clenched/locked jaws. The original pit fanciers (nice word for fighters) did not care about dog welfare, Tragically, the current pit fanciers do not care about dog welfare either, as they refuse to offer and refuse to accept any breed specific solutions to an obviously breed specific crisis. Pit breeders and pit mongers only care about themselves and their ability to own the dog of their choice. The suffering and death that surrounds the pit crisis is acceptable to them. Not all pits will attack but the worst pit trait is the fighting dog behavior to not give warning before being their attack. The silent attack helped win dog fights, so it was selected in the creation of the pit bull.

Pits are different. Even when German Shepherd dogs, Dobermans and Rottweilers were the popular power dogs, they never maimed/killed neighbors, visitors, passerby pets/people in the numbers that pits are now. THE dog that US dog fighters choose are all pits. The obvious solution to the pit bull crisis, that has invaded essentially all US communities is to ban the breeding of these tragically handicapped dogs. While it is never the dog's fault, as dogs control no aspect of their lives, the pit mongers, breeder and owners proved every day that 1) they do not care about others and/or 2) they fail to understand their pits abilities and instincts to escape, maim and kill. Since dogs cannot address the issue and pit mongers don't care, that leaves it to Society to address the carnage that often follows pits. Ban pit breeding and sales. Enact and enforce spay/neuter microchipping of all pits, pit mixes, all dog aggressive dogs. If a boxer mix is misidentified, no problem, she gets spayed. No responsible pit owner is punished, as his dogs are already spays/neuters. Breeders of others: know who is buying your pups and for what purpose. When in doubt, spay/neuter pups before sale, to prevent their intentional breeding for increasing reactivity and aggression. If you fail & your breed,over the decades, becomes the "next pit bull" your breed gets added to the mandatory spay/neuter law

Killing other dogs and even large animals is "good" pit bull behavior, intentionally created in pit bulls by cruel dogman/ "pit bull fanciers"/dog fighters. "Kill or die trying" was the motto given to pits by their creators. Most dogs were created to less suicidal jobs. Herding, hunting (pointing, flushing, chasing rabbits), these traits did not cause the deaths of any dogs. If two beagles attended a hunt and tried to kill each other, they were culled. The opposite is true of pit bulls. Pit bulls who did not attack without reason, who did not attack without warning, dogs who stopping fighting if the other yelped, submitted, "said uncle" these pits were culled. Stop listening to the misinformation and lies of the pit mongers. Pits who kill ARE doing exactly what good pits do. No one blames the beagles' traits of barking and sniffing on abuse or lack of socializing or training, because good beagles sniff and bark. This helped the rabbit hunter know where the rabbit was, so the rabbit could be shot. In order for the pit bull to be the best at fighting to the death (US style dog fighting), normal dog behavior was reduced or eliminated. In order for the pit bull to be a safe neighbor, the dog can never be permitted to become a loose or stray pit. Who can promise that? Pits have been known to leap through 2nd story windows to reach the victim, even chew through wooden doors to reach the neighbor dog INSIDE its home.

Pits are different. Watch youtube.com "pitbull vs cavalo" which shows a "dead game" pit bull attacking a horse. She has many chances to escape, but her "gameness" the drive to not stop mauling not matter what, prevents her from leaving. "Kill or die trying" was the motto given to pit bulls by the men who created them, and this one does. Pits can be happy, wagging their tails and killing too. Mauling releases endorphins, so they continue mauling even after suffering severe injury. A border collie rushes up and bites a jogger. Kick the border collie hard and he yelps and retreated. Stab a "good" pit bull and he won't flinch. Liveleak.com "2 pitbulls attack smaller dog", youtube "CCTV pitbull kills its owner" show how happy pits can be while killing. No, not all pits will be "good" pits and attack, but a good pit won't need a reason and won't give warning before attacking. Forget the pit monger's propaganda. They must use misinformation and lies as they attempt to defend their dog of choice. Read the works of the dogmen who created the pits, books written before 1980. When pits attack, maim, kill, they are being "good" pit bulls.
