      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    ITS HAPPENED AGAIN (Vallejo) Times-Herald VALLEJO -- A 10-year-old boy was attacked by a pit bull Monday afternoon, leaving him with severe injuries, family members said. Ray Wilkie, of Vallejo, was walking to Burger King on Mariposa Street at about 4:30 p.m. Monday when he was attacked by the dog, his sister Anita Span said. Ray told Span he was walking in the 600 block of Springs Road when he saw a man walking a pit bull and a Chihuahua in his direction. He said the man made him uncomfortable, so he tried to avoid him by walking in the street. Ray said he saw the man let go of the pit bull, which then attacked him, taking "chunks off his right arm." Span said she called the police to report the incident but was referred to the local animal control. David Sidie, Benicia Vallejo Humane Society's animal services director, said animal control officers are investigating the attack. Sidie said they are trying to contact the brown pit bull's owner, who used to live around the area of the incident. The dog's name is believed to be Peanut, Sidie added. Span said Ray is scheduled to undergo skin graft surgery on his arm next week as a result of the attack.

    BM, how about mandatory neutering? i certainly oppose "genocide" on a breed. how about allowing individual towns the right to decide if these pets should be allowed? seems fair. you really dont help your cause by putting words in my mouth. your characterizations of my position are completely wrong. either youre quite slow, or quite an asshole, or both. im leaning towards the latter.

    i hadnt seen this before-- Pit bulls at top of fatal attacks / 20-year study finds kids under 14 suffer 42% of bite injuries -- 3 of 4 involve family pet June 23, 2005|By Ryan Kim, Chronicle Staff Writer Attacks by pit bulls accounted for about a third of the 238 fatal dog attacks in the United States during a 20-year study, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Pit bulls were blamed for killing 76 people, or 32 percent, during a study of dog attacks from 1979-1998, the study showed. Rottweilers were the second most deadly animal, reportedly killing 44 people, or 18.5 percent, during the same period. About 4.7 million people are bitten every year by dogs, resulting in about 12 fatalities a year, according to the federal statistics. About 500,000 to 800,000 dog bites require medical treatment annually. Children, according to the 2000 federal study, are the most vulnerable victims in dog attacks. Those under the age of 14 account for 42 percent of dog bite injuries. The highest rate of injuries was to children between the ages of 5 and 9. Of the 27 people who died in from dog bites, 19 were children under the age of 15. The animal responsible for 3 out of 4 injuries involving youth under the age of 14 is the family dog. Janis Bradley, an instructor in the academy for dog trainers at San Francisco's Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said the number of dog bites pales in comparison to other health threats like car accidents, which claim about 38,000 lives a year. When attacks occur, she said, people rush to criticize some dogs as threats to family safety. "Prudent measures can be taken to decrease the levels of attacks we do have, but there are many other injuries that present a more important threat to public health," Bradley said. "Almost anything you can think of." Carl Friedman, director of San Francisco's Animal Care and Control, said that although he does not want to condemn an entire breed, local and national statistics support taking steps to regulate pit bulls, such as mandatory neutering. "When you have a mauling where a 12-year-old child is killed and when 50 to 60 percent of our hearings for vicious and dangerous animals are for pit bulls, you don't have to be a brain surgeon to see we have a problem with pit bulls," Friedman said.

    S.F. dog-mauling defendant loses in state court Bob Egelko, Chronicle Staff Writer Wednesday, December 1, 2010 (12-01) 17:08 PST SAN FRANCISCO -- The state Supreme Court rejected an appeal Wednesday from a San Francisco lawyer convicted of murder for her dog's fatal mauling of a neighbor in their Pacific Heights apartment building in 2001. The court's action confirmed the 15-years-to-life sentence of Marjorie Knoller. She had been released from prison in 2004 after her original trial judge reduced a jury's second-degree murder conviction to manslaughter. But another judge reinstated the conviction and sent Knoller back to prison in 2008 after the state Supreme Court ordered a new hearing. Her lawyer, Dennis Riordan, was unavailable for comment Wednesday, but has said he would go to federal court if the state courts upheld the murder conviction. Knoller and her husband, attorney Robert Noel, were charged in the death of Diane Whipple, who was mauled in an apartment hallway in January 2001. Whipple, 33, the women's lacrosse coach at St. Mary's College, bled to death from at least 77 wounds. Knoller had been walking her dog, Bane, a 140-pound Presa Canario, on the roof and had returned with him to the corridor when he bolted away and attacked Whipple. The dog's 100-pound mate, Hera, charged out of Knoller's apartment and may have joined the attack. A jury convicted Knoller of second-degree murder and found Noel guilty of involuntary manslaughter for leaving the dogs with her, knowing she could not restrain them. But Superior Court Judge James Warren threw out Knoller's murder conviction, saying he believed her when she testified that she had no idea Bane would kill anyone. After Knoller served her manslaughter sentence, the state's high court ordered her case reconsidered in 2007. The court said a fatal dog mauling is murder if the owner knew the animal posed a risk to human life and exposed others to the danger. Judge Charlotte Woolard reinstated the murder conviction in 2008, saying Knoller had known Bane was dangerous from past incidents, did not muzzle him before taking him into the hallway, and did not call 911 or take any other meaningful action to save Whipple during the 10-minute mauling. Knoller appealed, arguing that the rehearing should have been conducted by Warren, who had retired from the bench but was willing to return for the case. In a 3-0 ruling in August, a state appeals court said Knoller had "acted with a conscious disregard for human life." Warren's post-trial findings showed he would have upheld the murder conviction if he had used the right standard, the court said. The state's high court unanimously denied review Wednesday in People vs. Knoller, S186822.

    Its Happened Again! another person has lost their life, because others have chosen to feed and house this breed with the potential for extreme violence Calif woman killed by pit bulls in backyard (11-17) 09:31 PST Moreno Valley, Calif.

    My 13 y/o daughter has one (ok, it's mine too). So who should be shot? Her? Me? Both of us? People like you are far more dangerous to society than any dog. You must be dumb as dog shit, there are over 150 breeds registered with the American Kennel Club. Why would you pick the most dangerous, powerful and unpredictable breed to be a companion to your 13 year old daughter? Okay, please correct me if I'm wrong because I'm not a dog expert, however I do plan to shortly place a GA post on this excellent new shedding tool someone gave us .. Anyway ... my perception of Pit Bulls is that they have some physical "gifts" which make the insane/screwup/abused/rescued ones particularly dangerous, such as aggressive attack style, short jaw which gives them a more dangerous bite than a long jaw dog, etc.. BUT, I have always found properly raised, properly loved Pit Bulls to be some of the sweetest, most even-tempered dogs around. Even our own rescue dog -- a mix of a Coonhound and Heeler -- has snarled and even snapped at children when she feels her food is threatened, it's enough to concern me and discipline her for it. But I've never seen a well-raised Pit do anything like that, to the contrary, they seem to be tolerate an unimaginable amount of child-induced stress and stay level-headed. I would be more likely to trust our friend's Pit with a child than our own dog. To be fair, our friend's pit wasn't locked in a basement, beat with a vacuum hose and fed gunpowder to make him insane. If they had this kind of dog I obviously wouldn't want my kids anywhere near it. Again though, maybe I'm totally wrong, I'm new to the dog world. The emotional side of me -- given that I'm new to all of this -- considers the only truly safe dog to be the kind that is about the size of a house cat. Any big dog is essentially a wolf that deigns to put the wolfish side of his or her personality aside in order to live with humans and get Snausages. what does a well raised pit look like? what does a well raised pit owner look like? are you 100% certain that a well raised pit has never in the history of the world been provoked to viciously attack? when you encounter an anonymous pit, do you operate as if its a well raised pit until you see otherwise? why should the general public have to take precautions to protect their families, while trying to do normal everyday things such as take a walk around a neigborhood because others choose to raise these potentially vicious monsters? is it irrational to fear anonymous dogs of a breed that has over and over and over again injured and killed people? do people have the right to not live in fear? or does the right own any type of animal one wants trump the rights of people to not live in fear?
