Pitbull to Die After “Kids” Use it as a Weapon

Update 9/11/09 – Update on Pitbull Used as a Weapon
In Seatac, WA, four “kids,” aged 11, 12, 13, 15, were kicking and beating on a dog the 15-year-old girl was walking, trying to get it to fight. When a woman stopped to try to find out what was going on and intervene, the 15-year-old girl and the dog attacked her.
“The 15-year-old girl, who was walking the dog, attacked this woman and then the dog joined in. The woman was bitten fairly severely,” said King County Sgt. John Urquhart.
These “kids” then proceeded into a local park where another woman was following them and calling the police after seeing what happened. They then got the dog to attack her.
A third woman was also attacked.
“She opened my car door, yanked me by the hair and drug me across the passenger seat, got the phone out of my hands, and started hitting me over the head with the phone,” the woman said.
“They were using the dog as a weapon, is what it boils down to,” said Urquhart.
The owners of the pitbull are facing felony charges. The dog was removed by animal control and will be killed because of what these “kids” did.
So we have a dog that was used as a weapon, an innocent victim. Three women who were only trying to help, attacked by this dog on orders of these “kids.” Parents facing felony charges. Why? All because four “kids” wanted to have some fun?! There are not children, they little monsters, psychopaths in the making!
People wonder why pitbulls get a bad rap… it’s incidents like this! This dog was incited and abused and encouraged to bite and attack. The blame for what this dog did falls squarely on the shoulders of humans, not the dog!
As for the “kids,” you have to wonder what is going to happen to them. The 15-year-old at least, is old enough to know right from wrong, to take responsibilty for her actions. Someone better get some help, some serious help, for these little monsters and now! Who knows what their next “weapon” might be… a knife… a gun…
Please take a moment to sign the above petition and get the word out. Hopefully we can save this poor baby and he can be rehabilitated!!
