What is this, Communist China?!! These animals are a product of their upbringing. Many people and animals have been saved by the magnificent pit. In WWII pitbulls were heroes and awarded medals. These days they often save lives of humans and animals. But is this focused on? NO. With a quick search I have three examples of the true hearts and loving natures of these precious animals (and there are many, many, many more examples where these came from!) ...

Agreeing a bit with Helen Diane Warden Wallace below, I want to share a profound and heavily meaningful quote.... Ceasar, "the Dog Whisperer" says, "there are NO bad dogs, JUST bad owners". I have personal case study experience with this and can promise that this is true. Without getting into it all here, we have deliberately and very consciously raised a now-six-year-old dog who continues to believe that there is no such thing as a human who is anything but wonderful and loving, and is...

Without getting into it all here, we have deliberately and very consciously raised a now-six-year-old dog who continues to believe that there is no such thing as a human who is anything but wonderful and loving, and is as excited to meet her as she is to meet them. THERE ARE NO BAD DOGS. ONLY BAD OWNERS!

People could be mauled by the dangerous dogs. It is time to stop training the dogs to maul other dogs.

The problem is it's not the dogs it's the fault of the OWNER(S) of these dogs. Take action against these owners.

Something was not right from the beginning. This is what you should always suspect as animal abuse. Action should have been taken much faster, as soon as the NEIGHBORS realized the dogs were distressed. It is common sense-- that the behavior would most likely be linked to animal abuse. It could have, maybe- all been avoided if people started to care MORE for all life forms and not just themSELVES. Someone should have reported the owner at the first signs of the dogs aggressive behavior. They...

I cant sign this petition though. People need to start caring before it comes down to this and not just after- with the intentions to only protect THEMSELVES.

The owner must be prosecuted, punished and banned for life from owning animals!

Why aren't the police doing anything to this Neighbor especially after the first attack. What if the children were outside. I didn't blame the guy for stabbing those dogs because he was trying to save his dog. Those dogs should've been put down a long time ago because they're dangerous.

Hello, thankyou for your comments and for signing and sharing the petition. This tragedy occurred in a little suburb of LAKE MACQUARIE NSW AUSTRALIA - and down here in Australia, most of us DO NOT have guns, as we are not a gun toting nation. The owner of Buddi used a knife to defend his family, his dog and himself. LEE is not to blame here. We want to see the OWNER of that Mirrabooka property held accountable for this. RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP!

Why are the owners not being targeted? Would you souly blame a group of toddlers for lighting a house on fire or the parents??? I'm a huge animal advocate. I've personally handled assisting in laws being established in animal protection in my state. But the way this petition is worded it puts no responsibility on the owners. I can't sign it. I would be hunting down the owners for prosecution not the dogs.

WE WANT TO SEE THE OWNER of the loose dogs that have been causing grief and havoc in the local area for a long time now held accountable for this tragedy.
