        Natalia Reid i can see that you have no knowledge of the history of pit bulls. Here is a little background; The Pit Bull is a dog developed from a mixture breeds of dogs. They were originally developed as fighting dogs from cross breeding bull-baiting dogs (used to hold the faces and heads of larger animals such as bulls) and terriers. After the use of dogs in blood sports was banned, such dogs were used as catch dogs in the United States for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt and drive livestock. These dogs are aggressive fighting dogs NOT PETS. they need to be banned. My wife was attacked and almost killed by 2 pit bulls which had to be shot. she spent weeks in hospital recovering and still have the marks all over her body as a reminder. when you or someone you love is attacked by one of those dogs you will understand their danger.

          I have had a pitbull and a dog will be as aggressive as it is trained or allowed to be. When dogs get loose and form a pack the whole element changes.

          Eric Mason… it seems as you have very little and limited knowledge of these dogs are are ready to condemn the breed. I can see that you can only repeat the negative of the Pit Bull breed but did not continue to investigate further down the page you recited from to see that this breed has also been used as soldiers, police dogs, search and rescue dogs, seeing eye dogs and so on. Given that the main problem law enforcement faces when training a Pit Bull is to get then to attack a human that would mean they are not as primed to attack as some may think. I know of Pearson (Jack) Russel Terriers and Chihuahua breed dogs that have been more aggressive that any Pit Bull I have ever owned or known. If you teach an animal to be aggressive and treat him as such, agressive he will be. The Pit Bull passes the temperament 86.4% higher than the Golden Retreiver at 84.9%. They scored a higher temperament rating that 121 other breeds. So please do not let a bad experience because of a bad owner make you hate a breed.

        Banning a breed of dog is a ridiculous proposal. How about we stop turning a blind eye to the rampant dog fighting in this country and get serious about it? Stop blaming the dog and start putting the blame where it belongs – the owners.

        No, it couldn’t have been ANY dog! That’s the most IGNORANT thing I’ve ever heard. A beagle or shitzu or yorkie could not have done this. So when you take all of the dogs that don’t have size, strength, genetics-temperamen/tenacity, and then look at the history of human dog bite related fatalities, you narrow it down to the breeds that have a history and high percentage kill rate and you find- pitbulls, staffys, am Bulldogs, other bully derivatives and mixes and you UNDERSTAND that the MAJORITY of deaths to humans and animals are caused by these dogs. No, I didn’t read that or see bogus stats, I’ve ACTUALLY BEEN WORKING WITH the victims of these dogs and their grieving families. I know what the FACTS AND REALITY ARE. Oh, you have your occasional Rottweiler, or lab (usually a pit mix) or wolf but inevitably it’s the DAMN PITS AND BULLYS. Say what you will about your own personal experiences or biased beliefs but your pitbullshit excuses, misinformation and denial won’t bring back our dead or stop the next attacks and deaths. Maybe try something constructive, like sticking your head back in the sand.

        they are not ready for you as yet. they are never violent until they attack. and if you know anything about dogs you will know that dogs function on instinct fueled by their genetic make up. dogs dont think. thats why you will find lots of statistics around the world of owners being attacked by their own pit-bull. i already had my experience with them. there is a reason why they are outlawed in many countries around the world.

One got away a day and he ran pass every human being in the neighborhood buy needed up having it out with another dog. Some people buy dogs, put them in dem yard, feed them and then have no control over them when they escape and attack people. They say the same about Akitasome, I had 6 Akitas, I have 3.now and my babies are amazing.

          You do know that any and every dog is capable of attacking? And all dog breeds are “never violent until they attack.” I’ve seen and met numerous pit bulls and I can tell you for a fact that they won’t attack you for no reason. They are highly territorial and probably felt like their space was being trespassed. That being said, rather than outlawing, I think owners need to do more to make sure their pets, especially bigger dogs and animals should be housed when necessary to prevent another situation like this from happening.

        Very lucky! My friend raised pits from puppies with her daughters because someone liked you told her “it’s not genetic, it’s how they’re raised”. After two years without ONE TRACE of aggression or bad behavior, it chased her 4 year old down the hall and ripped her throats out. How they’re raised? Pitbullshit! Totally!!! Your experience is greT! Glad you weren’t injured or killed, but don’t put others in danger because of your limited experience. The next one that you encounter might be the last. Just know how to unlatch their jaws do you won’t loose a limb or bleed out.

      Your premise that something needs to be done about the dog attacks is correct. However, it does not help your case by using hyperbole to prove your point.

      Call for pit bulls to be muzzled, for people buying the breed to have mandatory dog training and education, for proper regulation of homes and kennel areas of the breed.

      There’s no statistic or study that will tell you 100% of dog attacks worldwide are caused by pit bulls. When I was a child, my uncle had a pit bull, she was the sweetest dog to me and at 6, I had no problems with that dog. My heart goes out to the family of this lady, but the problem is always the dog owners, not the dogs. Dogs do what they are trained and allowed to do.

      Pit bulls are not 100% responsible for all dog attacks and deaths, here in england although Pit bulls are a band breed and we still have people being killed by dogs such as Staffordshire bull terriers , but they are not band. All dogs can kill if they are trained that way. Alot of it is down to the owner. If the dog is brought up and trained right then this can be prevented. This however is not to say that a well brought up dog can never one day snap what ever breed they are

        You’re making no sense at all feel all pit bulls the same ? Any dog could’ve done that , furthermore if a horse did get way from a stable and give she a kick and out she lights what would you say ? Oh horses were never good animals? You need to wake up what you’re talking is stupidity. I have a lot of dogs and one breed out of the many is a pit bull and I put my hand in her mouth and other HUMANS do the same, the only thing she is fierce against is other animals so you should shut up and look to speak smart things with your time.

        The most that will happen because of this incident is that they will force the law of dogs being licensed in Barbados now and talk about removing dogs from homes without license before them look to fix the pot holes in the roads properly.

        I would first like to send my condolences to the family of the Elderly women mentioned in the article, my heart goes out to you. The Japanese Akita, American Akita, Almost All Mastiffs, Rottweiler and Doberman’s should also all be outlawed, as they have all been created, and used for the same or similar purposes and all display similar characteristics and tendencies, yet, I do not see them on your list. Any Dog, Animal, or Human for that matter is shaped by its experiences. Even though some Dog breeds may have more protective and aggressive tendency than others ultimately, like children, training is a larger factor in determining the attributes attained by the dog breeds mentioned which has been well documented concerning these breeds as they all have strong personalities and need to be well trained. Lets stop looking at the conduit and focus on the root cause here. Let us stop blaming only the dogs who also share equal blame in this tragedy, but also focus or scope on the owners.

In Trinidad when you pass almost every house that was in the gap we stayed in on both sides of the street you could hear or see dogs and not one was a big breed dog.Chihuahuas and small common breed dog salmon tot retrievers and when you past every one barking getting on like lions and I ask the man we stay at why them only got ankle biters he said well them nosey and small but them get you on the foot and don’t let go and if you got more than one them does bring down a whole man.

    Perhaps now Barbados will enforce laws on owning dogs. Registering them, microchipping them. In a secure yard or tied on a collar and minimum 12′ lead, with food, water, shade from sun and shelter from rain. Spay & neuter policy especially on yard dogs to curb aggressive behaviour. Lots of reasons dogs attack. Pit bulls are bought mainly for fighting which is illegal in most civilised countries!

    “Pit bulls” aren’t to blame for this act! I own one and she is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. It’s the owner who is to blame for this kind of viscious behavior! It’s how these pitbulls were raised. However, I do agree that these 4 particular dogs should be put down as they are highly dangerous, and the owner charged! He should also never be able to raise another pit!

      I strongly disagree with you on your opinion that it is the raising of the dog. My daughter showed that dog nothing but kindness and love:

      My daughter was attacked by her pit bull that she raised from 6-8 weeks old, so I don’t have to imagine the screams. I know too well what they sound like. Thank God my daughter made a full recovery with no real visible scars.

      Though you may think you have greater chance of survival when attacked by what we mockingly call “ankle biters”, if there is ample opportunity to do damage (I.e. No one is there to break up the attack) the feeble; elderly and the young will always have to be cautious around dogs.

      Case in point: http://www.kptv.com/story/21313261/pack-of-chihuahuas-attack-little-girl

It is terrible for us that from time to time one of our families will be grieving the lost of a loved one as testimony that the authorities need to forcibly step in now and not wait until it happens again.

We now give you a blue ribbon, a pat on the back and an award for having the half of the breed that’s not the killer half! Congratulations! Now stop talking. The other dogs that DO have the strong genetic DNA for aggression are STILL OUT THERE and are still owned by unknowing, irresponsible (or both-even worse) owners and WILL attack and kill. WHA are you going to do about it? Tell more stories about your experiences? They won’t bring back our dead or stop the next deaths…..Maybe you should try to help get this breed(s) under control.

I understand that it Is the responsibility of the owner to have them trained but even though I love dogs I don’t think I would ever want to have 4 guard dog breeds together for exactly the same reason we are discussing here. If anything unexpected happened, the person couldn’t stand a chance and I couldnt live with that. I know everyone has the choice to keep as many guard dogs as they want but it’s just not worth the risk in my opinion.

I wouldn’t own one and I stay far away. Back then I was able to run fast and far while others scared off the dog. This poor lady would not have been able to do this. I’m heartbroken for her family.

Nonsense, I don’t have to read up on nothing about dogs, these dogs their jaws locked, plus they try to protect at the slightest thing which makes it very hard for the owners to get them release from the body. They do not follow command at that time. I know of too many attacks that end up fatal. A lady and her mother had a quarrel one morning in their apartment and the pit bull which belong to the daughter, jump on the mother and killed her right there. The daughter could not get him to stop, neither could she get him away. You cannot train no animal well enough, that they cannot retreat to their instinct.

    I have pits and they are not man agressive dogs unless trained. Also genetics play a huge role in a dog just like a child things are passed on. When looking for a dog people should do some research who are the parents of the dog where did they come from how were they treated and trained. Some people are assholes as well they train the dog to be man aggressive.

      lol, how misinformed are you people? Raw meat doesn’t make a dog aggressive. Doesn’t anyone read? Are you all as informed as our grandparents where when there was no outlet for information? A raw food diet is the healthiest thing you can feed a dog. It has no effect on temperament.

    When an adult is a bad parent you don’t blame all children for that parent’s problem child. Any dog will attack someone if they have a crappy owner. Owner should be charged.

    Just for clarification, Pit bulls do are not the breed responsible for the most attacks on people, they are the most reported breed. Secondly, most pitbulls as a generalization are not bred to be aggressive towards humans, but bred to be dog aggressive. This call for banning the breed is both ignorant and destructive. The issue is not the breed of the dog nor even the dogs themselves, the issue is irresponsible dog owners. That’s the root of the problem. Sadly a large number of people are bad owners. Pitbulls are not bad dogs, neither are German shepherds, akitas, poodles etc Most of you are speaking from places of ignorance and passion. Take it from someone who has been training dogs and interacting with a ton of dogs and owners, the problem is never the dog.

    This is very sad, this woman was innocent in this attack! However the dogs are not to blame it is the owners/handlers! Theses dogs need constant discipline, training and guidance. Without these things you will have a very aggressive dog on your hands. Too many people take these dogs without first learning how to properly train them. Dogs are pack animals, if humans do not show that they are the pack leader the dog will be dominant. We have a Rotti and from day one we have been training him teaching him and letting him know he is not the pack leader. It angers me when people take these dogs without the knowledge or skill to properly train them!! This is tragic for all involved. May this poor woman RIP

    We will once again have a great discussions about ”bad dogs are not born, they are created” and ”the owners are to blame”. I am an animal lover and a fellow dog owner of a pitbull mix. It sickens me to see some of the idiots that own these large and potentially deadly animals. Idiots aren’t only children. They are the dog owner that may be against the dog being tied, but has a short fence in a nice neighborhood and swears the dog is friendly, until it jumps the fence and attacks a stranger. (In the case I witnessed, a laborer working near by). Another idiot are the person with the big heave chain around the dogs neck and walking it with the intention of letting it loose on any stray dog, chicken or cat they see.
    My argument is some breeds are potentially more DEADLY than others. pit bull being one of them. It maybe difficult but these breeds need to be registered and regulated. Also stiff penalties for owners who don’t.

    First let me express my sadness at the horrible way that the lady died. I wouldn’t want that to happen to my worst enemy.

    Let also express my sadness that so many people see this a dog problem.

    Let me also express my sadness that the use of statistics is used to make false accusations against the dogs and not against the owner.

    That is like blaming a model car for killing a pedestrian and not the mishandling of the driver.

    The dogs are very popular among dog owners because they are very loving, playful & loyal … not different than most other dogs.

    Unscrupulous people who intend to fight dogs recognize that the Bull Terrier aka Pit Bull are blessed with upper body strength, agility & loyalty.

    It is my opinion that the owners are the ones to hold responsible for the mental condition of the dog. And so in order to protect the dogs, rather than ban them for the rest of dog owners that enjoy them, it might be best to monitor the dog owners for signs abused or fighting and nip it in the bud, .i.e. Ensure the safety and protection of the dog. All owners, unfortunately, should be ‘forced’ to ensure their wellbeing.

    First my condolences to the family of the deceased. This is clearly a tragedy. However, unless it has been confirmed by the police and dog owner that the breed is in fact pit bull, it is irresponsible for this publication to declare that they are considering the stigma attached to the dogs evidenced by the asinine comments above. Most persons wouldn’t be able to identify a pure-bred or mixed pit bull if it peed on their legs. Despite the literacy numbers, I know Bajans are not a well-educated or researched people so it’s someone like myself’s job to accurately inform. All dog breeds are capable of violent behaviour especially when the owner is not informed of proper socialization techniques. Many studies such as one carried out by the University of Bristol’s School of Veterinary Sciences in 2014 posit that it is not the breed of the dog, but the learned behaviors taught consciously or subconsciously by the owners. Similarly research done by the American Veterinary Medical Association on dog bites by breed found that pit bulls were not disproportionately dangerous compared to other breeds especially when compared to rates of breeds like Jack Russell terriers (which I doubt most in the comments would class as a vicious breed). So before you call for wholesale bans on a breed perhaps take that 98% literacy rate and read up on the benefits of proper socialization and dog parenting classes for dog owners.

    It’s so sad that in this day and age where information is free in most cases(internet).
    Pit bulls and terriers yes can be aggressive but even more so if they are trained to be,however they are more animal aggressive than people aggressive naturally.
    Any dog that has a lack of social interaction with other people will tend to be aggressive regardless of breed.
    Size how ever has a major factor in the damage any dog is capable of inflicting on prey or a human in the unfortunate cases.
    You can’t blame an entire breed for the action of 4 dogs because if that was the case we would have banned ourselves.
    As humans because we have committed more senseless acts on each other, when a 25 year old man commits murder we dont say commit all 25 year old males to Dodds for the action of one man because it would be fair.
    What I would say is that this is a very tragic situation my condolences to the family,but the owner is fully responsible for securing their dogs and will have to deal with any incidents involving their dogs.
    All dog aren’t bad some just have bad owners !!!!!!!!!!
    How ever not to say the owner is all to blame for the dog actions as I don’t know them but they Can be held accountable for their escape.

    Let me offer a little education about pit bulls for those who don’t have a clue about the breed. A pit bull is only as good as the owner AND HOW IT IS RAISED. I say that because I lived with a pit bull. A more gentle dog you never met. Slept with the dog, played with the dog, had infants around the dog — on several occasions — with not even a hint of aggression. Walked the dog and people would cross the street when the dog had no interest in hurting anyone. This is an unfortunate incident, but wouldn’t it be interesting to know how these dogs were socialized? Were they socialized to be vicious attack dogs? Don’t blame the dogs. Blame the owner(s). In most cases a man with a vicious bit bull is feeding his ignorant male ego. I guess a big, vicious dog makes him feel more masculine. No, don’t blame the dogs. They are not the problem. Condolences to the relatives of this unfortunate lady.

    May this lady rest in peace. No one deserves to die like this at all. Th owner is ultimately responsible. If you know that your dogs are aggressive you should secure them . The fact that they were able to jump over a wall means that the place was not secure. You gauge how high your pet can jump and build the wall much higher. You also put a double gate if they are are aggressive. An inner and outer gate, inner gate of permaclad or a similar product. So they cant bite through easily, preferably double the sheets of permaclad up. Dogs are often trained to be aggressive. I dont know if this is the case but some are. Ultimately i feel really bad that an innocent woman was killed because of the irresponsibility of an owner. The dogs are animals and are behaving on instinct. However they must be euthanized immediately.

    First off, my condolences to the victims family and friends and also wishing those who tried to help a speedy recovery.
    In my 30 years experience with large dogs and training here’s what I have learnt.
    – No matter how good a dog is individually and with all your training, there is something called pack mentality. It HAS happened to my dogs.
    – As hard as it sounds to do , try not to scream when attacked by a large dog. Screaming excites them further, which is why they tend to go for small dogs, children and women. Size also is a factor.
    – If attacked by two or more dogs, get to higher ground , a wall, a car, a tree…whatever to can get to as fast as you can. SHOUT for help in a loud commanding voice, try not to scream. I KNOW, difficult to do when you are being eaten.
    – Finally, owners of these larger dogs really need to decide if what you have them for, protecting your property is really worth the risk of them mauling unintentionally. Visits from the police, lawyers cost, insurance costs??
    Let me tell you, you can have a child that passes your property every day and throws rocks at your dog, damages your property, and when your dog decides it has had enough and bites the little bugger, YOU will get stuck with the short end of the stick!!
    I am sorry I won’t offer any ways of defeating a single dog attack as I am aware that this info can be used to break and enter homes.
    IF there is to be any WORTHWHILE discussion on this topic, leading to legislation it should be factual and balanced and lets leave the emotion out of it. The word PITBULL evokes a lot of emotion, and trust me they are other breeds to be equally concerned about.
    GOD Bless.

If you influence the dog to go in a ring and fight it will become aggressive because it taste blood and was train to do so. That owner needs to be charged because just yesterday i went to view a car and the owner command his pitbull go back and he didnt even bark.

    A dog projects the mannerisms it is taught whether you teach them intentionally or not. Starve a dog and it gets lose the possibilities of aggression can lead to these very unfortunate results. Honestly, if people are going to own pit bulls they have to be intelligent enough to do so to avoid harm coming to themselves or others.

    You know what us the saddest part of all this. It’s that many people don’t take the time to read. It said pit bulls in the heading so now everybody and their cousin is an animal behavior specialist, vet, animal breed historian etc. In the article it stated and I quote ” following an attack by four dogs, including pit bulls.” Including meaning that the pitfalls were not the only ones doing the attacking but all everyone saw was pitbull and all of a sudden they are animal experts. Don’t get me wrong not saying that justifies the attacking of an elderly person but before you quickly jump on the ptibull’s case do note that any dog has potential to attack and seriously harm or kill someone. Looks are deceiving and books should not be judged simply by their covers. Pitbulls reputation is entirely the fault if the negligence of bad owners. I have 3 and I didn’t get them for their viciousness. But I’m no people expert so stick to your chihuahuas and everything else you think is cute. They may be the same ones that bite you first.

I dont care what ANYONE says they should be killed and killed immediately I say. Once you have them KILL them I am 11 years old and commenting on this report.

    Those dogs should be put to death and the owner pay for the funeral and then put in jail. May her soul rest in peace.

    Band dem, end of story, are we forgetting that two of them attacked two school children and their mother one morning in Black rock and almost killed them. I would put a $2000. yearly Tax on those who wants to have them. Please act now and save another life. Mr. Norville , RSPCA, animal control, I want to hear your voices on this matter. I want your opinions, PLEASE.
    my condolences to the deceased family.

    The difference between normal dogs and Pit Bull Type Dogs is that those non pit bull type dogs regardless of their size do not have an inherent genetic predisposition to Kill, Maul, Maim, Disfigure, Dismember, cause Life Flights or trips to the Intensive Care Unit.

    They can be taken on a dog by dog basis and their ownership will determine their behavior.

    All pit bull type dogs have an inherent genetic predisposition to Kill, Maul, Maim, Disfigure, Dismember, cause Life Flights or trips to the Intensive Care Unit due to their genetic connection to the Roman war dog Aluant & The Ol English Bulldogge precursor genetics that led to the creation of the Pi Bull Terrier, and will do so no matter how they are raised, it is a generic genetic reality which is why they all need to be banned to prevent there numbers from reaching greater numbers which would lead to carnage in the streets.

    In North America, from 1982-2014, Bullmastiffs have been responsible for 111 serious attacks on humans, resulting in 63 maimings and 18 deaths.

    In North America, from 1982-2014, Presa Canarios have been responsible for 111 attacks on humans that resulted in 18 fatalities.

    In North America, from 1982-2014, Cane Corsos have seriously attacked 21 humans that resulted in 12 maimings and 2 fatality. In addition, a Cane Corso/Pit Bull mix attacked 1 person that resulted in a fatality.

    In North America, from 1982-2014, Dogo Argentinos have been responsible for 5 serious attacks on humans that resulted in 1 fatality. This breed in rare in North America.

    In North America from 1982-2014 Fila Brasileiro’s have seriously attacked 5 humans and were responsible for 1 death.

    All you people commenting informedly or ignorantly should research as much information as possible on pitbulls.

    Pitbull owners in America have many many restrictions including insurance policies !!!
    Pitbulls are not PETS !!! PITBULLS ARE VICIOUS and are MORE VICIOUS than Rotweillers, German Shepherds, Akitas and the British Bulldog .
    go to Google and read all about PITBULLS and other vicious dogs.

    There’s no doubt…this is tragic. I see in the comments almost uniform ignorance of canine behavior and breed identity/history. Everyone is so quick to assume a dog is a Pit Bull Terrier. Tell me of your expert eye…your knowledge of the breed or of any breed for that matter. If I bred a Boxer to any Lab, 100% of you would declare the offspring “Pit Bulls”…and you’d all be wrong. Any number of mutts are labelled Pit Bull for sheer sensationalism if nothing else. I’ve had and raised true American Pit Bull Terriers all my life and they are among the most stable dogs to be found. Not because I say so, but because canine behavior studies say so, again and again. I will say, if a true Pit does attack a person, he is likely to die.
    I marvel at the eagerness of humanity to paint with broad strokes an entire breed as vicious for the behavior of a tiny minority, usually raised by incompetent and antisocial humans.
    What if 2%…or 7% of a group are violent and dangerous? Do we euthanize the the other 93-98%? What if it’s a group of humans? How do you apply the same hysterical illogic to race? What if you were a member of a race, 20-30% of whom behaved violently and criminally, consistently across geography and time? Would you like to be executed or ‘banned’ for the misdeeds of people who look like you?….or are you an individual? Think for yourselves people.

    This is so heartbreaking for a life to be lost in this way. I am sick and tired of hearing about this bloody pit bulls killing people. I notice now that a lot of black boys/men are having these dogs as pets. I use to live next door to a black guy he had four my son and I was living in fear all he would say is that they know you but I would never be out with my son or myself when he has them out. Understand this dogs attack and killed some of these guys do not know how to train dogs thy treat them very bad beat them kick them and shout at them no understanding of how to train a dog. I believe they have these dogs for protection from the drug men. Why would you want yo keep four dogs like pit bulls in your house. What a bunch of idiots. The only sad thing is that the bloody dogs should attacked and killed them instead of innocent people. No one should be allowed to keep thesedogs as pets and should be kept in a dogs home for bloody dogs. Put that bloody owner in a house with four pit bulls not his own and let them deal with him. Sorry too many people and lives are being killed and attacked and scared for life by these damn dogs shoot the bloody dogs.. I know that wouldn’t bring that dear lady back. My deepest sympathy and prayers and thoughts are with this family.RIP grannie.

    Thes bloody dogs are killer dogs and they are not pets. This is a message for black boys who are using these dogs and drug dogs for their protection. Why would you have four dogs in your house that house must be a damn mess. Another thing these black guys do not know how to train dogs I see them beating kicking and shouting at these dogs on the streets. I think this owner should be put in a smal room with four pit bulls not his own and leave them to deal with him. Sorry but that poor lady lost her life in that horrific way. I use to live next door to a black guy who had four all he would say to my son and I they know you and won’t hurt you really think I was stupid to believe him I would never be seen out when they are out or I would say to him take them in so I came come into my home. These dogs are forever killing and leaving people damage. Keep the bloody dogs in a dogs home not in your houses. My deepest sympathy and prayers and thoughts go out to the families. RiP grannie.
