Usually * naw kid I need this NOW* or *Naw Naw j don't wanna buy online* I usually just shrug , cut the chain , and watch them end up ringing up around $90 after they buy a the links clips ect for one chain. Then again their usually grinning at their assorted freinds so hard you think their gold's are gonna pop out there mouths so idk mabye they just wanna spend money crazy

Btw sorry scout1 was trying to edit your quote as a quote and ended up editing your original post crazy my bad

By the way, I'm equal opportunity when it comes to roaming/potentially aggressive dogs. The breed doesn't matter--but Pits get extra special attention. And I agree, a lot of it is the owners but I can't really deal with that.

I feel the same for any roaming dog pit or not if they can't stay home they will disappear. I have had one pit in my life and he was my best friend when I was in high school and on in to my 20's. My dad hated pits, but found out that it's just a dog breed and he ended up real close to that dog. I have a dog now that maybe some pit not sure he is one on the best dogs I have had in awhile. Always stays home never bothers the cows and hates armadillos. I know a guy who has a few pits for catch dogs and he has a hole house full of kids and family who has kids not one has been eaten yet.

What you are talking about is a felony in the state of Oklahoma. You might want to research it a little bit before spouting it off on the internet "counselor".

Pit bulls are handy for some things.
There was a video out last year of a mexican gang using a pitbull to castrate a rapist.

You have no clue what you are talking about. I could safely call the Sheriff and tell him what I am going to do or what I did. I have every right to shoot whatever roaming aggressive dog in defense of me, my family or property.

Watch those court TV shows and most of the time the dog breed that did something someone is suing about is a pit bull.

Blaine, this is allowed in Oregon and Alaska too if I’ve read and understood the verbiage correctly. I’ve actually had the same aggressive dog at large issue in Oregon.
Still I’d be cautious in action regarding the genetically “inferior” folk down the road...theory being if the dogs are getting out, what else could?...

I agree. That's the only hesitation. And, I unfortunately as the hunter/trapper guy (I definitely don't flaunt it but people figure it out) I am suspect numero uno.

Some get very beefy. It's a 3 fold issue why heavy chain is used and keeps snapping..... the dog is chained all day to limit its interaction. Some use it as a dumbbell weight for their pit. 3 they use short cheap chain with no swivels which the dog keeps putting heavy sudden pressure on it (all day).

I've known pits on all sides of the behavior and breed spectrum from teddy bear - the devils dog.

I had a mastiff that snapped numerous leashes. I finally got some climbing rope and used that. He never snapped the climbing rope. He was a giant teddy bear, a solid hunter, and protective. 95 lbs of pure muscle.

You're kidding right? I had no idea OK was so bunny-hugging liberal.
Here an unrestrained dog off it's owner's property has the same legal rights as an invasive or feral animal. Meaning, none. In fact, Fish&Game used to run ads in the newspaper every spring during moose calving season basically encouraging folks to shoot any dogs seen harassing moose.

Now, shooting someone's dog without a good reason just makes you an a-hole. But the law is clear that the responsibility lies with the pet owners.

They try and tell me that crap here in Georgia until I tell them to read the last sentence on the statute they are trying to cite. Shall not apply to a pest or animal to be removed from a home or property.

Debates on pit disposition , aside ...

I have a couple guys I know near me , one I call a friend ,keep a ( heavy on the singular tense ) pit as catch dogs on pigs . Exceptional dogs in that role . I believe as others have said , the chain has nothing to do with containment for the dog. Its a work-out tool .

Neighbors aggressive pit got out and started running around. Called the police and told them I was going to shoot it if it came in my yard. They told me to make sure I have good shot placement. Can do!

Living in the country we often have idiots drop off dogs and either assume we'll them in, or find someone to take care of them. I've taken 4 or 5 to the shelter, 20 miles away, but if they are the least bit aggressive I've been forced to take care of them in a different way. I hate to do it and hate to have stupid people put me in that position. I've had a couple that appeared to be pit bulls or at least mixes that never made it to the shelter. Very aggressive and in my mind dangerous. I'd actually like to catch a coward dropping an animal off. That might be fun.
