TOTAL FILM BLOG AWARDS
And now for a rather depressing and harrowing piece of news a couple hours away from my neck of the woods from this past weekend...***WARNING! One photo below is quite strong***
From Friday, January 7th in Davidson County, NC comes this horrifying real life incident that could have been a scene straight out of a killer animal movie from the 1970s. Sherri Herald is an animal lover and had saved a group of pit bulls from the pound. She was attempting to rehabilitate these dogs, which had been subjected to animal cruelty from a previous owner, or owners.
This happened sometime Friday morning, or afternoon. Sherri was alarmed to find four of the recently rescued pit bulls attacking one of her horses, devouring it alive. Two were biting and pulling at the horse's ankles while two others were dangling from the equine's mouth. Sherri ran towards the horse yelling at the dogs in the hopes they would stop. Instead, one of the dogs that latched loose of the horse ran for her next, but the dog stopped and rushed back to the now bloody animal.
Calling animal control, the officer arrived and shot into the air to get the enraged dogs away from the fallen horse. In an even more harrowing instance, the dogs swarmed the armed officer from different directions with intentions of attacking him next. Amazingly, the officer was able to shoot and kill the four blood crazed dogs before they were able to make a meal out of him, too. Seven pit bulls in total were involved.

KILLER DOGS DEVOUR HORSE ALIVE

Personally, there should be strict guidelines for those owning breeds such as pit bulls, rottweilers and any other breed with violent potential. I have friends who own pets of both these breeds of dog and they are as docile and kind as any other dog, big or small. The treatment by owners of said animals speaks volumes on how these dogs will turn out. Their are far too many individuals who raise these breeds for fighting, or abuse them to use as protection of some kind. Unsurprisingly, a lot of people busted for drug trafficking tend to have these breeds on their property.
If you have a strong constitution and love animals, take some time and look over this blog I just found, 'People For the Ethical Treatment of Pit Bulls'. Be warned, some readers may be easily enraged by what you read here. Click the link below...
