This Is What All Those Dog Hating Journalists Are Causing

Lynnwood police are investigating the hanging of two pit bulls.

After hearing barking and yelps, the owner found his dogs, 1-year-old Peanut and 10-month-old Wiggles, hanging by their necks on ropes over his fence. One of them was limp, and the other was struggling.

"I put in an incredible amount of time training them, taking them to obedience classes, working with them to be sure they were calm, submissive, playful dogs and not aggressive at all," he said.

He speculated that a neighbor may have killed the dogs out of fear of the breed. He said his dogs had never had problems with people. But while walking the dogs, he said, some residents expressed concern there were pit bulls in the neighborhood.

After cutting the dogs down, the owner said, he lay next to them for 20 minutes and cried.

Pasado's Safe Haven is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Rita Morgan, national cruelty investigator for the Monroe animal shelter, said people often have preconceived notions about pit bulls. Sometimes those fears are well-founded, but often, she said, pit bulls are well-behaved family pets.

She said Pasado's took in three pit bulls after Hurricane Katrina. All three, she said, are "sweet, gentle and very social. They've won over all our volunteers."

This is what is going to happen the more that the media prints Dog Hating stories focusing on pit bull breeds. This was totally unjustified, cruel and meant to send a message. The person who did this deserves some serious time in prison.

This is why you should fight back whenever you see Dog Haters writing articles against dogs. These relentless attacks on innocent dogs encourage this kind of vigilantism.

This is a case of Dog Hating Terrorism.
