Not really, but it seems that they are always the breed. Can you name another breed that has been in the paper more than a pit ?

Perhaps it is time to give children 12 and younger dog whistles. The sound does not hurt our ears but are painful to dogs. I am so tired of reading about children being attacked as though they are nothing but rubber dog toys.

Is it too much of a hassle to get a license? When people get a new dog, is getting a license just an afterthought?

I suppose the silver lining to this cloud is that the lack of a dog license here is one more thing they can nail the guy on. He clearly knew about the dog license requirement having failed to appear in court about it before. I hope he owns the home he lives in, the title should be given the victims' family.


Dog licensing is an almost unknown requirement. I am friends with lots of dog owners who have NO IDEA there is such a thing as a dog licensing requirement. Every time I tell them about this, they are downright surprised. The city doesnt do a good job of making this known.

When animal control arrived to help secure the dogs, one of the officers immediately recognized the animals from previous attacks. The owner, 37-year-old James Grant, was arrested on 12 open warrants, including six failures to appear in court on charges of having unlicensed dogs, according to a police report.

Do you think quite possibly an owner with this track record could be the problem?

I guess the sarcasm was lost in you... just a week ago there was a whole thread that derailed over the age of a kid mentioned in an article. And, btw, the average 5th grader is 10 years old.


And maybe you didn't pick up on my sarcasm...

No, I totally missed it. Giant whoosh right over my head.

The average 5th grader is 10 going on 11 so by May the majority of the class has turned 11 already.

It seems as though.. ah good ol' confirmation bias at work.

Got any stats to back it up?

Anyone who owns a dog that has attacked people multiple times needs to be dealt with. I doubt anyone disagrees with you there. Anything else?

This is the problem, not an entire species. If a driver had multiple cases of reckless driving, they should lose their license too. That doesn't mean we should ban all cars.

Did you even read the article or did you see PIT BULLS and start freaking out?

There is no law that states that. It usually involves going to court and then licensed as a potentially dangerous dog and wear muzzles in public but euthanasia after a single attack is extremely unlikely unless the owner of the dog agrees to it.

Maybe? What planet are you on? This wanker should go down for a long time. With his track record this grevious assault should be treated no differently than had he committed it with his own hands.

You would think that he would have been locked up already! TWELVE open warrants and the cops cannot find him? How many other individuals like this are living in our lovely city?

JERSEY CITY - London Johnson walks through the backyard of her Bostwick Avenue home every day. The yard connects the building she lives in with her grandmother's apartment and is considered a safe place to play in one of the city's tougher neighborhoods.
But on Sunday afternoon, London was viciously attacked by two pit bulls that got loose from a nearby yard. The 5-year-old was bitten so hard, doctors thought she was going to lose her leg. It was her 12-year-old brother, Jahmir, who is being hailed a hero for coming to his sister's help.

"These two dogs, came and just ran up, we don't know where they came from, they just started chasing my three little cousins, brother, and sister" Jahmir said.

The incident, which has left London hospitalized at Jersey City Medical Center, is allegedly the third time the owner's dogs have attacked people, police said.

Jahmir, a fifth grade student at School 40, said at least one dog latched onto London's leg while he told his younger brother Tahir, 8, to jump a fence to get away from the dogs.

As the children were screaming for help, a neighbor threw his cane out of a window so Jahmir could use it to get the dog off London.

Their mother, Tyiesha Johnson, was inside cooking and realized the yelling wasn't the normal sound of children playing in the yard. When she knew her children were in trouble, she ran out of the house without her shoes to fight off the dogs, she said.

Johnson estimates the dogs were attacking for about five minutes before running back to a yard on Myrtle Avenue. Her oldest son carried London inside and police arrived at the building at about 3:30 p.m.

Police said there was a "pool of blood" in the backyard and saw three dogs were going in and out of the Myrtle Avenue home through a window. Two of the dogs still had blood on their mouths, throats, and chests, according to a police report from the incident.

When animal control arrived to help secure the dogs, one of the officers immediately recognized the animals from previous attacks. The owner, 37-year-old James Grant, was arrested on 12 open warrants, including six failures to appear in court on charges of having unlicensed dogs, according to a police report.

An 8-year-old boy was brutally attacked by a dog who bit his ear off while he played in the backyard of an Ocean Avenue home.

Grant's dogs have attacked people at least two other times, causing "serious bleeding," with the victims described as "bleeding very badly." He was issued 10 summonses for not properly licensing and caring for vicious dogs, police said.

At least one of the dogs involved in Sunday's attack has been euthanized, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

Johnson said the dogs bit so hard that her her daughter's leg and knee were broken. She wants dogs owners to be held accountable when their animals brutally attack, especially young children.

"I want to make sure this doesn't happen to any more kids," Johnson said.

Last month, an 8-year-old boy had his ear bitten off by a pit bull while he played in a backyard on Ocean Avenue. Johnson hopes to start a petition to keep aggressive animals away from children.

Johnson said the children are shaken up from the attack, with some having nightmares of dogs biting them. London had a second surgery on Tuesday morning and doctors are hopeful she will be released later this week, Johnson said.

London, a kindergarten student, faces weeks of physical therapy and it's still not clear how long it will take before she has movement in her leg again, her mother said.

But despite the serious injuries, Johnson fears it could have been much worse had Jahmir not been there to protect his little sister.

"If it weren't for him, I don't think she would have made it," Johnson said while standing next to a walkway stained with her daughter's blood.

Asked how it feels to be a hero big brother, Jahmir -- who was also treated at the hospital for dog bites to his thigh -- smirked: "It feels good."
