I would take a break we'll come back we'll talk about a horrible story out of Michigan. A dog killed a guy fatally mauled a man and the second time the dog attacked the human beings. And it could be a twist that you don't expect and know what you think in. But it's probably not would you expect we'll talk about it when we come back Tommy Tucker definitely well 713 glad you -- on this Monday. 7:18 Tommy Tucker Monday morning July 28 partly cloudy hot. Humid 30% chance for a spotty showers or thunderstorms highs around 93. To feel like a 10206. We have already broken 80 degrees this morning. And as a dog attack in Michigan that. When I first heard of -- I thought a year -- another pit -- but can find out. It was not a pit bull at all but the result was very very tragic and for that we go to Jeff Hogan editor of the county press -- morning Jeff Martin. -- -- tell me what happened here and had there been any pretty curses I guess this kind of thing. Was it -- -- there was there was that mean that the that the story can mean actually Nancy the last Wednesday evening -- on. Men and shocked. What happened was there was. Government was. A routine jog after work -- running up this world wrote. And two loose. Dogs. Took off after the story and attacked him in any need to right from his injuries. That is in our reporting turned out to -- 2000. Twelve and thirteen there were previous don't by the tax. From the homes from the residence. So. -- administrator. Lisa dot -- being secure and attacks as well so. But I this is the physical gruesome. -- -- -- -- And no John Jeff rather and everybody hears this immediately say aha more pimples but it wasn't. No these were. These were you know the code -- leaders -- a religion from Italy the peace McCain course he's there -- They can be a two -- 150 pounds and accomplish. Very similar in the way of a palpable very huge competitive large jaws -- -- senator. More -- your more lean body. But to. In doing our own research -- -- say American Kennel Club. Read on the website you know bowl -- is incidences. Aggressive breed. Movements in prospers. You know. Can can lead to attacks are very. So it was. It's it's it it it said you know this about a dog for definitely. Should be you know don't meet a lot of attention on exercise like them one on one supervision and so. You that that popular since you know it's it's not a not a breed dog it's recommended for you to be certainly. Looked a little problem and in this case it would appear postal -- Napster subsidies need brand on the -- long drive and talk after this man. -- -- So. It gives ourselves -- say this I saw a dog in one of these big bucks pet stores where he's supposed to bring your pants. And it was leading. Controlling. Totally a guy that was like I don't know. A hundred to 130 pounds and I thought in this trouble -- -- happen because these dogs are really terrifying to look at if you look at the size of the head. And the size of the neck and an upper body I guess you'd call looked like you. Talking about arm so are there any criminal charges pending here for that the person that failed to control dogs especially considering the dogs that a tax money -- Exactly what that that's that's penny that they could -- that can happen stories today the local police department were compiling there are the reports too to. -- Kerry were to the prosecutor's office in the -- Olympic that we would suspect so it'll especially the industry. So that it can happen with an excuse not to the next couple days is that it's Donald but the prosecutor's office and with input again from local and control in the local police departments but. We -- we would we suspect there will be some kind of you know more serious charge on the backed -- -- -- here. So the dog was bred originally these mean courses and is it correct to what was it two other holes -- there there. -- and again and they're right in the adult web site is there there were on a it is dark in -- menacing. Very very. Wrong and it very loyal you know so if if you merely. As military police units of Houston. In your poll dot com. -- you know and so. We don't we don't really handle a quick frankly if if these -- just -- first personal pets. I mean -- they've they've worked except the turtles been allegations that it was also. The order was breeding these talks of them and so that's something that an on premise is that this whole. And so that's against the the world looking into. Endemic to our local ordinances and whatnot and still achieve what you can do before becomes a business if you bring your dog is her home. And so that's that's what we know as far as that aspect of the story. Any community has there been any any reaction any call for blow outlawing the dogs are having some kind of fun. Special license -- -- them. No but well what are we we have in our typical child and to just people opponents don't often talk about issues and it just phone just explode and we -- with. Most of mentioned there are people saying com. You know. I mean -- -- of inflection and the tragedy would or could this happen but most are reflecting on the -- like what could be that -- that has. Two -- Two to the doctor. One is who's being litigated once in court. You know these officers that there were serious injuries such -- a little bit before. Hospital reconstructive surgery. So. That's the political -- that I mean I took this option -- Hitler. If you had two -- has talks still lives you know. Can't post -- chocolate what's the process that you know and and political -- and other it is dog -- or even now and saying. Just reflecting what he had been on the road to work or try to drive because -- you know -- -- -- Cox -- hospital he must become an offense and total -- a lot of that. We're out of time just to be clear Jeff this is the third time the dog attacked. While thank you Jeff appreciate -- time and sorry we are out of time have a great day Jeff -- editor of the county press and if you Google. On cane Corso and as the dog that I saw in the pet store and I mentioned this couple weeks ago. This thing looks like a monster and I love dogs but this is this is terrifying it's like something you would see. In a in a cartoon former something or some kind of comic book. So should a dog be put down after the a dangerous -- be put down after the first time attacks or taken away from the owner. And if your pit bull owner does this make you feel in -- way indicated they NC there are other big threatening dogs in a lot of ways. Might be even worse then a -- 716 timely to Traficant for that we go to Terrell Robinson. 739 David Blake so many times when you hear about a fatal dog attack you automatically default. To pit bull but in this case it's not it's. -- course those that got out and third time matter affected the -- has been a human being and it -- does get a death and when you look at a picture of this dog and it really is a big. Mom trying to better about the size of a pit bull -- but what scared me so much about this is the size of their head in the neck. Maybe the fact that it was pulling this guy world -- a buck and maybe but thirty. Around the store and -- and other dogs pulling him or not and yet he had no control of this are all off. And I would imagine with some breeds if you if you train it properly and spent a lot of attention on it then. From. Then used -- people haven't safely and contain an -- We're gonna posters on our website under Tommy's. Recommended reading and our homework -- take up a look at this dog and and I think the question is. It to me why do people handled. These big dangerous dogs and if you have one I'm gonna judge you I just don't understand it. Why you would want something and this dangerous in your home around your family I know and like -- eleven and ever heard word year pact and 24 hours you know but even then you better make sure that. The dog is under control while -- noses itchy -- that you're the master or not it. Texans in bully breed apologist typically misunderstand the argument it's not that bully breeds are more vicious. But that there are more dangerous. And I don't think they mean bully here in terms of kick in sand in your face I think -- -- of people derivative in other words all things being equal would be easier to fight off any other breed. Then it would a bully brie also does say that these dogs require a more attention another bird dogs is to tacitly admit they do behave differently. -- other breeds. So -- gimme a call if you will here let's shoot the -- a -- 60187. Until 3866. 889087. They get the phone lines going to enhance some conversation this morning. About dangerous dogs.

And now Michigan is a third time the dog had attacked the human well it finally accomplished I guess its goal. Which is mauling has got to detonate -- only imagine what a terrible death this would be. And we're asking and -- ready jaguar opinion polls should a dangerous dog be put down after it attacks a person just one time. Three quarters of viewers saying yes and get a text that says you sound like a duty. I don't know that means BTW worry how scared of you -- dogs and I'm not is afraid of dogs at all I've had German shepherds as a kid growing up. And now smaller dogs and now I have boxer that I -- -- loves so I'm not afraid of of well behaved dogs at all but if you have ever been. In a neighborhood of a cane Corso. That was pulling its master around if you would levered. You know the text it is about being -- -- I would like to put you next of this dog and see if you turned into a whatever you whatever attitude he has.
