An animal control officer was hospitalized this afternoon following a dog attack in South Longview.

Police and emergency medical authorities responded to a home in the 2300 block of South 12th Street at about 1:10 p.m., after animal control officer Jacqueline Lynch said she had been bitten by at least two pit bull puppies, according to dispatcher reports.

Residents in the neighborhood said Lynch was trying to take a loose pit bull dog into custody at the residence when another pit bull dog jumped a backyard fence at the residence, and both dogs attacked her. Lynch ran to a residence across the street - the home of 72-year-old Helen Williams - to seek refuge.

"They were biting her and everything," Williams said. "She came into my door and I pushed her in. That's the only thing that saved her was me letting her in the house."

The owner of the dog needs to be charged with attempted murder with a deadly weapon because these dogs rarely stop until their victim is dead.

So with that similar logic, we should start a coalition to rid the world of all dogs, since dogs have killer instincts. While we're at it, let's get rid of any large cat possible. Tigers kill people, no? Also, let's not forget ostriches, snakes, bears, crocodiles and alligators, sharks, deer, raccoons, aliens, creatures from beyond, and the platypus. All of the above harm humans in some way.. except the platypus. They kill you by making you laugh to death.

Think for yourself. Not hard.

ADDENDUM: Since 1997 pit bulls have killed 24 people in the State of Texas. There are similar stories wherever these inbred killers are allowed.

Check this link if you think PIT BULLS are not dangerous killers.

WHEN WILL WE EVER LEARN - PIT BULLS ARE BORN KILLERS AND SHOULD BE OUTLAWED. It is not a case of "how they are treated", it's a case of natural traits. Owners of pit bulls should be jailed and made to pay compensation and medical bills. The dogs in question should be killed. The owner of these viscious killers should also be banned for life from owning any animals, let alone these monsters.
I can almost guarantee that a child will be killed by a Pit Bull in the next few months.
