Baby Girl Is Mauled To Death By Pitbull: Neighbours Say They Warned Police Of The Danger As Couple Are Arrested

Comments Off on Baby Girl Is Mauled To Death By Pitbull: Neighbours Say They Warned Police Of The Danger As Couple Are Arrested

“How many times do we have to go over this; it’s the bloody owners that give this breed a bad rap! Irresponsible owner’s are one of the major causes for all the problems the breed faces today.  Pitbulls have long been selectively bred, over the years to be fighting machines, they are sturdy & strong with a powerful bite force; genetics & training play an important role in how the dog will respond to other dogs or humans. Pitbulls are not inherently aggressive to people; unless taught to be! 

 Some owners (Perhaps the boyfriend) just want a pitbull to use as a power status or for intimidating others; which is just an accident waiting to happen; and it did!  This tragedy could have been avoided had the owner been a responsible one & kept the dog under control; instead of it being allowed to roam freely around the house, whilst they watched TV? The mother must have been aware of the dogs temperamentt; why didn’t she insist the dog be put in a crate or a locked room; whenever the baby was around? No dog should be left unattended with children; especially babies!  The owner would have known, without doubt, what his dog was capable of doing; for that reason, I think they should both be held responsible for this terrible tragedy!

  • 11-month-old Ava-Jayne Corless attacked by pet late last night
  • Neighbours report seeing ‘vicious and terrifying’ pit bull type dog
  • Victim’s mother and stepfather arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and bailed this morning
  • Baby’s father pays tribute to ‘the most beautiful and adorable little girl’
  • Lancashire Police say dog involved in the attack was a banned breed

A baby girl was mauled to death by a dog that neighbours had allegedly warned was dangerous.

Ava-Jayne Corless, who was just 11 months old, suffered horrific injuries when the American pitbull terrier attacked her while she slept.

Her mother, Chloe King, 20, and  boyfriend Lee Wright, 26, heard the commotion and rushed upstairs to rescue her from the jaws of the beast.

Paramedics were called and took Ava-Jayne to hospital where doctors were unable to save her life.

Victim: Ava-Jayne Corless, aged 11 months, has been mauled to death by a pet dog

Miss King and Mr Wright were questioned on suspicion of manslaughter and child neglect, and were today released on bail.

Lancashire Police said: ‘The two people arrested in connection with the death of Ava-Jayne Corless at Blackburn have both been released on bail pending further inquiries.’

Parents: Ava-Jayne pictured with her father Dean and mother Chloe, who are no longer together

A police spokesman said last night that the animal was banned under the Dangerous Dogs Act of 1991.

Senior officers have launched an investigation into reports that neighbours had called Lancashire Constabulary to complain about dangerous animals at the property in Blackburn.

Faisal Shahzad, 35, fled after two dogs broke through his garden fence. ‘I had to run quickly into the house and barricade the door because they were tearing after me,’ said the taxi driver.

‘I’ve got three children and they were all in the house absolutely terrified. The two dogs were scary. I called the police and they said something would be done and my neighbour also called the RSPCA.’ 

Another neighbour, 80-year-old Brian Harrison, said: ‘That dog was a nightmare for neighbours and people were worried about approaching it.

‘It’s an absolute tragedy that should never have happened. ‘Only last year it mauled to death a neighbour’s cat and nothing was done about it.’

Kyle Perry, 19, was chased down the street by the dog. ‘It was a big dog and it used to just bark and bark,’ he said. ‘I have been chased by it down the street. It was terrifying.’

Blackburn MP Jack Straw said: ‘What will it take to convince people not to keep dogs like this – and to get across to all dog-owners, of every breed of dog, that no dog should ever be left unsupervised with a baby?’

The incident happened at around 11pm on Monday while Miss King was visiting Mr Wright at his home 40 yards from hers.

The pair are understood to have put the baby to sleep in a bedroom and were watching television downstairs when they heard the attack begin. By the time they reached Ava-Jayne she had suffered catastrophic injuries. The dog was destroyed.

Chief Superintendent Chris Bithell said previous contact with neighbours would form part of the police investigation.

Last night,  police said the dog had been identified by experts as a pitbull. 
Owners cannot be prosecuted for dog attacks on private property until new legislation comes into force this spring.

Arrest: The victim’s stepfather Lee Wright is being questioned by police on suspicion of manslaughter

Tougher sentences will be introduced under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill.

Rachel Cunningham, of the Blue Cross animal charity, said: ‘We can only hope the Government’s planned changes to the bill will allow authorities to step in at the first sign of a dangerous dog and help prevent terrible events like this.’

Jennie Rudd, of animal welfare campaign group Naturewatch Foundation, said dog attacks were caused by irresponsible owners.

Danger: The dog was described as a ‘menace’ before the attack and previously killed a neighbour’s cat

She added: ‘If it has aggressive tendencies it is the owner’s responsibility to make sure it never gets near a child, and that it isn’t forced into situations where it feels it has to attack – because there is always a reason for a dog to bite.’

Last night Ava-Jayne’s father, Dean Corless, 24, said he was devastated by the tragedy: ‘I rushed to the hospital to see her straight away.

‘She was the most beautiful and adorable little girl, she was just the best. She was my  whole world. Her mum and I aren’t together any more, but I saw Ava-Jayne all the time. I will miss her every single day, I just don’t know what to do now.

‘It is just so tragic. I have my family around me now, but we are all devastated.’ The RSPCA confirmed the charity had been contacted after a dog at the address killed a neighbour’s cat. The death was treated as an accident with no action taken.

Graphic Video: Animals Are Not Ours To Abuse; Petitions To Sign

Comments Off on Graphic Video: Animals Are Not Ours To Abuse; Petitions To Sign

It’s simple: Animals exist for their own reasons—they don’t want to be trapped in the wild, torn away from their families, confined to cages or small tanks, beaten, neglected, abused, or killed. You can relate, right?

The only reason why people eat, wear, confine, and kill animals is because animals can’t fight back. Industries that exploit animals may not listen to the voices of the animals who are crying out for help, but they will listen to yours!

Viewer Discretion Advised

Whether it’s making sure always to adopt animals from shelters instead of buying from a breeder or a pet store, telling local stores to ditch glue traps, speaking out against dissection or cruel events like “donkey basketball” at school, reporting chained dogs or dogfighting in the local neighborhood, or volunteering at a local animal shelter, we all can make simple decisions that help animals every single day.

Video: Tethered Duct-Taped Bait Dog Found Tied To Fence

Comments Off on Video: Tethered Duct-Taped Bait Dog Found Tied To Fence

“WTF…It never ceases to amaze me just how cruel humans can be; it is we humans that are the animals!. Somebody knows who this dog belonged to, they don’t just bloody appear from know where.  Please, If anybody knows anything about this case, please do the right thing & inform those below. Please keep this sweet dog in your prayers; so that he may make a full recovery. His leg may have to be removed but lets hope he will come through this & find a forever home!”

A one-year-old pit bull was rescued in Kentucky after having been found tied to a fence with his snout duct-taped shut. A reward is being offered for information on who did this.

Duct-Taped severely wounded, Frodo was found tied to fence

It is believed he was being used as a bait dog because he is covered in bite marks.

He clearly, in my opinion, was a bait dog and this is not the first time being thrown into a ring,” said Rebecca Eaves, director of The Arrow Fund. “Basically, a dog got him here, broke his canines and pushed them in.”

The pup, now named Frodo, is being treated at the Blue Pearl Animal Hospital, where he is being pumped full of antibiotics and painkillers. One of his legs will have to be amputated because of injuries, but staff say he’s lucky to be alive.

“It’s a shame what they do to these animals, and I’m emotional because I’m sick of this,” Eaves said. “This is a sweet, sweet puppy, that was just shown a life of horror.”

Frodo was found on the 2600 block of West Kentucky Street in Louisville. Investigators have no idea who tied him to the fence, and are urging the public to come forward.

“Right now, we want to plead to the community,” said Donald Robinson with Louisville Metro Animal Services. “You can remain anonymous. Please call our tip line, let us know if you’ve seen anything, if you’ve seen this particular animal out in that particular neighbourhood.”

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) involved.

We want to put this person behind bars,” Eaves stated. “Dog-fighting is rampant here in Louisville and everybody needs to be serious about it. Don’t be afraid. Turn them in.”

Have You Heard About the Disturbing New Animal Abuse Trend Known as ‘Trunking? Petition To Stop This Inc.

Comments Off on Have You Heard About the Disturbing New Animal Abuse Trend Known as ‘Trunking? Petition To Stop This Inc.

“I sadly have to say this is nothing new, it’s been going on for years; which is why I included the video as proof.  Isn’t treacherous dog fighting brutal & cruel enough for these sickos? Are people becoming so desensitised to the value of innocent life, that they have to create sicker and sicker means of “entertainment? What happens to the dog that’s won the fight but beaten up badly in doing so? They are not going to spend money on fixing up these dogs because they don’t mean anything to them in the first place…they will just be thrown out with the trash & the thugs will get another; there are always plenty homeless pit bulls  to be had!.”

“Abuse like this will not stop until the laws are changed. A few days in prison or a fine isn’t going to stop these dick heads!! Lets face it, if they are that cold-hearted as to put 2 dogs in a trunk to fight to the death…what value do they put on a human life, other people’s property? what do they give to the community??? Enough said; so make the punishment a real one, that hopefully will deter others & stick by it.”

“Don’t know about you guys, but I am sick of reading the appalling abuse these beautiful dogs go through!The breed nobody wants from a shelter because they are deemed vicious!! But they aren’t born that way, it’s not their fault & they shouldn’t have to pay with their lives for the damage done; when all they have ever known is violence & fighting. Make the humans who taught them all they know pay for it; not the dogs!!”

June 4th 2013 – What is “trunking?” It involves dogs (typically pit bulls), the trunks of cars, and possibly some of the most inhumane treatment of animals seen in a long time.

How does trunking work? According to animal rights activists, this is what happens during a trunking:

  • Two dogs are locked into the trunk of a car and then driven around.
  • The car’s stereo plays at a loud volume in order to cover the sounds of the fighting.
  • After a short time or when the fighting appears to have stopped, the dead dog is tossed out and the survivor goes on to fight again.

“And Here Is It In Action – This is not a new craze as one can tell by the video date!  As always viewer discretion advised.

Hidden in Darkness: ‘Trunking’ is Dog Fighting’s Ugly Secret

Uploaded on 22 Aug 2008

NEW YORK — One of the most barbaric forms of animal cruelty has an underbelly which for years has remained literally hidden in darkness: “Trunking” is dog fighting‘s ugly secret.

The latest and most-publicized incident of trunking came to the attention of authorities after a woman in Florida’s Miami-Dade County area reported seeing dogs being put into the trunks of cars in order to have them fight to the death.

Animal control authorities visited the reported location and found 10 dogs, many exhibiting wounds that are typically associated with fighting.

The Miami Herald reports that the home where these dogs were discovered was the focus of a pit bull investigation in June 2012. The breed is illegal in the county and someone called to say that pit bulls were running loose in the neighborhood. The person who lived there denied owning the animals but received a citation.

Additional complaints were called in just two weeks ago. Callers reported the pit bulls were still on the loose and that one had killed a neighbor’s dog.

BACKGROUND !
Parks trainings of hunting dogs (called “Pritravochnye stations“) See video above! are places where hunters can train their dogs using wild animals as prey, such as wild boars, bears and wolves and smaller animals such as raccoons,foxes, badgers and rabbits.

The dogs risk almost nothing!  People pull out teeth and claws of the wild animals so they can’t hurt their hunting dogs during the trainings with these wild animals. (Their teeth and claws are removed as a precaution) but these poor wild animals are suffering to death, they are scared, they are super stressed (and sometimes are dying of stress or injury) they are living in constant fear – says a veterinarian Semen Sereda. These animals are bitten dozens and hundreds of times. Experts say it is possible to make this process more humane, for that you need to change the law ..

Dogs can train every day, costing to the owner 300 rubles. (about $ 7) per session. The dog has ten minutes to bite the animal and that the maximum…but for the small animals it usually finishes with animal death!

It becomes impossible to the wild animal to fight back. They don’t even try to fight back because they are so terrified..of being abused. These people if the teeth are not been removed put a wood stick into the wolf’s jaws-mouth so they can’t bite.

They chain the bears so the bear can’t more than one feet. They also taking rabbits cubs, foxes and badgers and put them into a special “tunnel” so they can’t run away; and leave the mad dogs rushing on them inside the tunnel (as pictured/video below)

There are about ten parks trainings dogs in Moscow region. But across Russia they are hundreds of them; each of these parks operate legitimately. Because any law prohibiting such existing operating in Russia. The workouts dog parks bring in families with children and their guest, advertising is everywhere: on roadsides, in newspapers, on the Internet.

But there is also an much more gruesome underground “illegal parks” which is very well known by regular confidential customers .. Illegal parks whose advertising does not exist; but only from mouth to mouth…at the request of the customer if he wishes, his dogs can torment a chained boar or a chained bear until it dies .. (a kind of bear baiting till the death follows)

We urge the Russian government to put an end to this unacceptable huge barbarism !!! please sign the petitions massively ! (especially the first one!)

9-Month-Old Puppy Used as ‘Bait Dog’ Dies Dues To Severe Injuries

Comments Off on 9-Month-Old Puppy Used as ‘Bait Dog’ Dies Dues To Severe Injuries

“VIDEO TO FOLLOW…OK somebody know’s who this dog belonged to, so do yourself a favour & tell the authorities; anonymously if you must, just please do it! The people that make dogs fight to the death are nothing but cowardly cold hearted thug’s who take pleasure in seeing such heinous cruelty. They are probably into domestic violence too, as they like to dominate & be in control. But these MF’s are not fit to breathe the same air as animals never mind humans; locking them up is too good for them. I say use these MF’s for experimenting on instead of sentient beings who have done no harm to anyone. Please, if you have a conscience, do the right thing; before someone, perhaps a child gets hurt! R.I.P little one x

The male pit bull puppy found in Yonkers was unable to recover from excessive wounds and blood loss, and had to be euthanized.

Pitlbull puppy had to be euthanized due to severe trauma & injuries

Local veterinarians were unable to save a 9-month-old pit bull puppy that suffered massive wounds and blood loss after likely being used as a ‘bait dog’ to train other dogs to fight. 

The SPCA of Westchester’s Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) Division was contacted by the Yonkers Animal Shelter who got a call about a severely injured dog found on a walkway between Somerville Road and Edwards Place in Yonkers. The puppy was taken a local animal hospital. 

‘At the time, his breathing was extremely laboured ‘ said Ernest Lungaro, director of the SPCA’s HLE Division. ‘The veterinarian who examined him reported that the pit bull had severe multiple bite wounds and abrasions about his face, muzzle and head. He was extremely emaciated and neglected and was mostly likely used as a bait dog in a fighting ring. 

The veterinarian also noted the animal had old scars from previous attacks.’

The puppy was put to sleep Thursday, since veterinarians determined he was unable to recover from such severe injuries.

Puppies, weak or older dogs and females who can’t breed are often used as ‘bait dogs’ and are usually tied up and/or have their teeth removed so they are rendered defenceless-according to the Briarcliff based SPCA of Westchester, a no-kill non-profit animal shelter, hospital and animal cruelty law enforcement organization.

‘Although dog fighting is a crime in New York State, we are constantly on the lookout for clandestine groups who fight the animals in Westchester County,’ said Lungaro.

The SPCA’s HLE Division is asking that anyone with information on this puppy or information on dog fighting in their area to make a confidential call to the number below.

Acushnet, Mass. Police Investigate Animal Cruelty Case :Dead Pitbull Thrown Off Bridge In Plastic Bag

Comments Off on Acushnet, Mass. Police Investigate Animal Cruelty Case :Dead Pitbull Thrown Off Bridge In Plastic Bag

VIDEO TO FOLLOW – THIS SICK MF THAT DID THIS NEEDS CATCHING – BEFORE HE TOSSES MORE DOGS INTO THE RIVER!!

“Come on people think, somebody know’s who this is! Somebody who is hosting dog fights & who throws the dogs that lose or the bait dogs; out like garbage! Any information you may have, please tell the Acushnet police or the Acushnet Animal Control.”

(NECN: Jennifer Eagan, Acushnet, Mass.) – Acushnet police are investigating a disturbing case of animal cruelty after a dead dog was found in a black plastic bag Thursday.

According to officials, the dog, a 4-year-old female pitbull, was found after a witness reported seeing a white male on the Slocum Street bridge push a baby stroller with a black plastic bag in it, then throw the black plastic bag over the bridge and into the Acushnet River.

Police say the bag did not go into the river but landed on the bank, where the dead pitbull was found inside.

According to a Acushnet Animal Control officer, the injuries on the dog consisted of dog bites, appearing as though the dog was being used in dog fights.

Police say the suspect is again a white male, and is in his mid- to late-twenties, and was last see running into New Bedford from Slocum Street and then south on River Road.

Acushnet police are asking anyone with any information about the owner of the dog to contact them.
