sue the owner of the pit bulls
I cannot fence of his property diddy. I still will not use a gun to scare, or shoot an animal. I have no intentions of hurting anyone's feelings, and no I don't know what to do about it still. pfunk to diddy

Fence YOUR OWN property, or a portion of YOUR OWN
property, to keep other dogs out.
It is YOUR OWN property that you're letting your dogs run on, isn't it?

Obviously this is a person who has made up his mind that he wants to use a salt launcher to pepper the dogs with salt-peter.
He doesn't want any useful suggestions, and simply wants his method endorsed.
I would be afraid that it might only enrage these dogs and exascerbate the situation.
No, I'm not endorsing it. Nor am I going to waste my time further suggesting something he doesn't want to hear.
FENCES should work and be the least threatening method for our unrealistic flower child.
In my post of 12-26-04, I asked these questions, which you ignored:
1. Many people are opposed to guns, for various reasons. Would you mindsaying why you are so adamant against guns?
2. Is there a web site where we could see a salt launcher? I took abrief look, but didn't find one. Is carbon dioxide used as a propellant?

No matter; however, I was just thinking. Pit Bulls are notorious for not letting go of an animal they're attacking. It takes an extraordinary individual, with a lot of luck and maybe some divine intervention, to break up one pit bull on one dog. Yet, the event you noted involved two of your dogs being injured (and more of your dogs might have been present). Somehow, you were able to persuade two pit bulls to break of their attack and flee or stand by as you and yours retreated. Notable is the fact that your dogs were perfect ladies/gentlemen evidently.

I'm beginning to think you have no dog problems, and maybe no dogs! All things considered, I believe all you have are some remarkable skills as a T-R-O-L-L. I don't want to play anymore.
Any animal guardian who fails to protect their animal(s) from every reasonable threat, especially obvious threats, is a truly pathetic excuse for a human being.

Zildjian: world class cymbal of excellence.
Diddy recommended a gun, which seems like the obvious, and perfect response, IMO. I'll make it even clearer: deadly force. By that, I mean don't shoot to frighten the pit bulls or even injure them: shoot to kill.

Not at all. I also detest guns and have never owned or fired one in my life. You think P-Funk who also hates guns and has never used one in his life should get one for the sole purpose of killing a dog? How's he going to get the expertise to learn to use it, what if he winged the Pit and really *** it off. I can't believe the casual way you suggest to just "use a gun as.."the obvious, and perfect response,". Obvious and perfect for who??
Sorry Michael, I know I won't alter your opinion but there are those of us out there that don't see a gun as any solution for anything.

Citronella spray, pepper spray, vinegar, just to name a few. I own 2 Pit Bulls, and from what you describe, those Pits have owners who make it hard for responsible ones like me to own them. Call your nearest Animal Control or SPCA or look for the nearest Pit Bull rescue. Someone who knows the breed won't like what you're saying and something WILL get done. You would be doing me and many others a huge favor Emotion: smile
