    I agree there's more to the story. You're right a full investigation should have been done. Are they doing an autopsy on the girl, do you know? Do you have a link to this story somewhere?

    I also saw on the TV last night when they were interviewing her friend.. she mentioned that they need to investigate more as the dog kennels had been torn up.. like the dogs forced themselves out as to get to their owner.. so something sounds off.

    I guess there was a lot of false information. The Sheriff even reported that they were ex fighting dogs. Then he came back and had two more press conferences trying to clear up or clarify things that were said that were not true. I can find a link.

    Exactly, as well a creditable animal behavior specialist should have been present for the ordeal verses a Sheriff that retracted two statements indicating hundred plus pound dogs as well as the dog fighting accusations against the owner based on one other persons statement. It's like they are just covering their own negligence jumping to conclusions.

    I'd like to see an autopsy report on the girl.

    Good to see that they sort of elaborated on the 'generic' term used as Pit-Bull.. stating it is to describe the blocky head and athletic build.. which can be very misleading to the 'real' pits -vs- the look a like pits.. but it seems that they tried to stress to the public that this was not an actual PIT-BULL breed.. but rather a mixed version of something that is unstated or documented.

    The trouble with retracting a statement is it's already been spoken and printed.

    No one remembers the true information, only what they heard first.

    Sensationalism sells, especially when the words Pit and Bull are compounded incorrectly.

    Although I have to throw this in.... about 30 yrs ago my first husband and I got a StaffordshireTerrier. Very expensive, and had a champion pedigree. We raised him in a loving home, but.... he got to be very human aggressive and eventually bit my next door elderly neighbor. We used to put him in our den when my girl friends came over and he almost ate through a solid wood door to get to them. So purebreds can be crazy too.

    Man biters have become a trend among the ghetto and redkneck backyard wannabe breeders, and regardless of the intention behind breeding dogs with bad temperaments it's a recipe for a serious disaster and nemesis to the Bull family.

    In regards to her dogs temperaments, there's more then one friend attesting on behalf of the dogs and their own experience with the two.

    Some people have asked me why I'm adamant about keeping my self informed about every reported attack, mauling and fatality. It's my prerogative as I'm studying animal behavior. I don't believe everything gained in the clinical studies even though it is a good guideline I'm finding to navigate in two worlds.

    Many people will say I'm superstitious. Which I am far from, but I do follow an ancient indigenous culture and it's ultimately a pinnacle of my understanding of the natural world as well as the metaphysical and spiritual understanding.

    If nothing else, idiopathic aggression simply put will attempt to explain that irrationality just about everyone can't grasp in this horrible story. Sadly the idiopathic aggression is just that. Then we could discuss rage syndrome.

    Again in the world of logical reasoning, I still consider that she threw gasoline on a fire, meaning it's possible she was keeping herself between the dogs attacking each other standing initially in two legged stances with her stuck in the middle violently screaming, which there's been reporting of. Pathetic soul hearing such overlooked or most likely was too frightened by the screams.

    Of course their is yet much to learn from the ongoing forensics as well as the laboratory findings as they study both the dogs and her.

    May she rest in peace as Christians say, and as my people say, May her journey be a peaceful one..Naahaaw (closure)

    Staffs are not the same thing as an American Pit Bull Terrier, which is the only Pit Bull. Just saying.

    The story of the Virginia woman doesn't add up, and I saw the pics of her dogs and TBH they didn't look Pit Bull to me, or purebred anything.

    I've heard nothing on an autopsy on this woman either, and it would make more sense to me that she died of something else and they got hungry. They were out there for several days, too, which maybe they were just staying close to their food source but I can't help thinking that's a bit of loyalty from them.

    Interesting information, to add to that I have also read articles saying the dogs were not with her for some time but tethered at her uncles with little to no human interaction. Obviously (well obvious to most users on here) there can be well kept chain spots where the dogs are also given attention and taken off daily to exercise and such, but it didn't sound like that was the case with these dogs. If these dogs did attack it could be the combination of poor genetics, probably from a crappy breeder as well as them being isolated for some time.

    It doesn’t matter about any of this. No matter what we all say to anyone. Our “breeds” are valeays going to have a bad rap. I try to explain to ppl until I’m blue in the face, and all I ever hear is well the tv news is always right. No matter if there an investigation or not. Or breed will never win. Media and social media are the worst thing ever for society.

    Sorry for the rant. It’s just something I go through on a daily basis ( I’m sure many others do too). The sad part is the worst of them is my own fuckin family.
