Mable McCallister
84-years old | Cleveland, TN

Mable McCallister, 84-years old, was attacked by her grandson's pit bull on December 18, 2011. Police officers said that she was bitten in her face and neck. The injuries caused her hospitalization in Erlanger hospital's trauma unit for over four days, according to Bradley County Medical Examiner Dr. Jeffery Miller. Mable died on New Year's Eve while in hospice care. The owner of the pit bull, Jerry Harrison, Jr., lived on his father's property where several other pit bulls were kept. No one from the Harrison family called police or animal control after the attack. "We became aware of the dog attack only after Ms. McCallister was brought to Erlanger," Officer Evie West said. The Harrisons also "home-quarantined" the pit bull after the incident; it's unknown if the dog was ever put down. The victim's great-granddaughter left a message at the news article: "A woman, an amazing woman dies from this dog and nothing is being done about it." [source citations]

iden McGrew
2-months old | Ridgeville, SC

Aiden McGrew, 2-months old, was killed by the family dog while his mother was away and his father was sleeping. The mother found her son after returning from a doctor's appointment with her 7-year old daughter. The other child in the household, 3-years old, was asleep with the father during the mauling. The baby was left in a "bouncy chair" by his mother before leaving to the doctor's office. Initially awake that morning, the father, Quintin McGrew, fell back asleep. The recently adopted dog, described as a golden retriever-mix, pulled the infant from the chair and severed the baby's leg during the attack. Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nesbit ruled the death a homicide and that neglect led to the boy's death by "animal eating." The father was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The couple's two other children were taken into protective custody after the attack.

It's Wes's pitbull baby, because slobbering obsessively over a dog means you never have to say you're sorry to a human !

YAY !

This not a thread about guns or drunk drivers. it's a thread about dogs and everyone thinks their dog is the sweetest most harmless lovable critter on the planet. simple fact is that even very sweet lovable dogs can get weird when left unsupervised espicaly when there is more than one dog unsupervised.

ohn Doe
6-years old | Oak Grove, KY

John Doe, 6-years old, was mauled to death by a medical service dog that had allegedly been trained to help a Fort Campbell serviceman who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Part of the dog's training was to wake its owner up in the event he was experiencing a nightmare. Instead, the animal brutally mauled a child to death. At the time of the attack, the young boy and his family were visiting the Fort Campbell serviceman's home. The boy was outside in the backyard with the service dog, described as a "small German shepherd," when it attacked. The dog inflicted severe facial injuries to the boy. He was helicoptered to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, but did not survive. The serviceman surrendered his service dog along with two other dogs to authorities. The service dog was quickly put down. No identities were released. As of February 18, 2012, there is no new information about this incident. [source citations]

Two really interesting ones, both loveable family pets. Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan
1-year old | Henderson, NV

Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan, 1-year old, was killed by his grandmother's dog after celebrating his first birthday. Following a long day of opening presents, Elizabeth Keller set the toddler down in the living room. Jeremiah crawled over to the family dog, a large mastiff-Rhodesian ridgeback mix, and grabbed the dog's fur to pull himself up, as he had done many times in the past. This time, the dog clamped its jaws around the boy's head and shook him. The grandmother tried to free the boy from the dog's jaws, but could not. The mauling continued for about 30 more seconds until the boy's father rushed downstairs and managed to free him. Jeremiah did not survive his injuries. His father, Chris Shahan, was stunned by the dog's actions and told the media, "They played with each other all the time ... they kissed each other ... they slept together." The baby's death was ruled accidental by the Clark County Coroner's office. [source citations]

Fatal pit bull attack, Clifford Wright
Clifford Wright
74-years old | Santa Fe, NM

Clifford Wright, 74-years old, was discovered mauled to death by one of his pet pit bulls. The victim's son, Gavin Wright, found his body after returning from work. Gavin Wright described the male pit bull, named Achilles, as a playful and loving pet and that his father loved the dog more than even himself. "He loved the breed, he loved the dog," Gavin said. The state Office of the Medical Investigator confirmed "the injuries sustained by Mr. Wright were from the dog. There were no other medical reasons related to his death." Santa Fe Police Lt. Louis Carlos said the victim had apparently been watering plants in his front yard before the attack. Carlos said that police "walked into a death scene" that night and described the victim's injuries as "grisly." The victim kept up to six dogs at his home that he shared with his son, at least three of which were pit bulls. In 2005, Clifford Wright was bitten by a different male pit bull at his home.

I've had my lunch killed by a dog at the crag more than once, and my buzz killed more times than that

Don't hate 'em though

Just because you don't love 'em, don't mean you hate 'em.

Excellent anthropomorphic projection of your world view by staring into your dog's eyes, Dick.

"My dog is so smart I can relate to it on a higher level than when I have to talk to humans".

HAHAHAHA ! ! !

Dogs are great & dogs are good and dogs belong in your neighborhood!

but


For the "dog-lovers" posting here!



There are a lot of folks that are very afraid of your dog at the crag.

Please try to understand that there are very good reasons why some climbers are afraid of your "beloved & sweet dog-friends."


Or are you just in doggie de-nile?

the lovely Ms. Bean fulfills ALL of the above stated criteria for being a crag dog. She's incredibly well behaved, highly trained, and silent.

I love her so much its crazy. But the thing is, she's not even my pooch. Her momma (my close friend) has been bogged down with crazy schoolwork for the last two semesters so I take Bean out for hikes and climbing a couple times a week to supplement her normal activity. But alas, our time is coming to an end as she'll soon be moving to Grand Junction for the summer....*sniff*

The wonderful, sweet, and beautiful Bean

Makayla Darnell
3-days old | Monroe Township, OH

Makayla Darnell, 3-days old, died hours after being bitten on the head by the family pit bull-mix. At the time of the incident, the baby was sitting in an infant swing in her family's living room. After the attack, which occurred about 6:30 pm, the infant was driven to Blanchard Valley Hospital and then flown to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo. She was pronounced dead shortly after 11 pm. Lucas County Deputy Coroner Dr. Cynthia Beisser said that an autopsy showed that the baby died from blunt force injury to the head, consistent with a dog bite. The baby's mother and grandmother were in the kitchen, just a few feet away, when the attack occurred. Steve Kale, a Lucas County coroner's investigator, said the family never heard a sound from either the baby or the dog. "It all appeared to happen in a matter of seconds," Kale said. The baby's death occurred just five days before the State of Ohio abandoned its statewide pit bull law. [source citations]

Sigh


It does appear that "some" dog owners are living

IN DENIAL!


Would you just accept that a lot of climbers are scared of your dogs?

I don't like to argue with Dicks, so I will take your word for it on notice of scrutiny going forward.

I have had the pleasure of the company of dogs both skiing and climbing. The problems whether I registered them or not were:

- It's not my dog but I feel honour bound to defend my at the time girlfriend's mutt's behavior as an extension of my fealty to her...

- The dog itself was an as#@&%e and gleefully so. As such, I screamed at the dog for behaving accordingly and expected other people climbing to understand that screaming at animals was perfectly reasonable.

- It wasn't my or anyone I know's dog and it was content in it's conditioned justification in thinking I'm a threat and a stranger. So my leg was sweet, sweet land sushi in defense of it's owner, five pitches up.

I do like dogs though, if they do like me!
