Dog dies in attack on Kauai beach

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:07 p.m. HST, Jun 13, 2013

Kauai police are looking for the owner of a pit bull that attacked and killed a smaller miniature pinscher Monday afternoon at Moloaa Bay, the Garden Island newspaper reported.

The pitbull and two other dogs were tied to a fishing buoy on the beach, but had gotten loose, Kauai police told the newspaper.

The owner of the pitbull, who is being sought by police, grabbed the dog to stop the attack and then left.

A few days earlier, another pit bull, who was unleashed, attacked and injured another smaller dog at the beach, the newspaper reported.

People dont realize that small dogs can kill pitbulls...they (the pitbulls) choke on the smaller ones.

I thought pit bulls were target practice. If they are not, they should be. I certainly hope I never encounter a pit bull on the loose.

This dog owner deserves whatever he gets. To have it happen twice is just outrageous. He should be put behind bars. Many have been jailed for lesser negligence.

Not the breed dude, many reasons for that, dominance, alpha sydrome, or like the say, dogs can sense EVIL.

Those dogs from the shelter are abused and hard to enjoy at home. Pet the dog on the head and it closes its eyes like someone before hit the dog on the head with something.

Dog owners should be made responsible for their dog's actions. Fine them, make them pay for all damages, and maybe even jail them.

sailfish1, you got the right idea, twice, in my Own GARAGE, a Neighbors' hundred pound dog raced up to my drive-way to "play with my 15 pound dog, (play they say, but trying to bite the neck is not play. My other neighbor said lucky never attack you. We would call the Police, but they, Neigbhors so trying another path to solve problem, but just too scary when young children are around. Yes, sailfish1 is 100% correct, make the owner of the animal pay a penalty, a good gauge is maybe 3 times a estimate price of the big dog. the breed is the guide not if it was a gift or pound puppy. Is the cost of a pit bull puppy, a $1000 at least, so if first time offender's fine should be $3000 plus community service, mucking Horse manure at a ranch. 2nd time offender should be 5 times like $5000. This seems extremely severe, But the victtimize doggy, m;aybe have been an irreplaceble family pet, and what penalty if child was tramatized or severell scarred. These owners should learn that their doggies are like their children, child and doggy neglect are against the law and Jail time may be in order to protect the public and their doggys. In the more county-side areas of the islands, shooting of wild pack dogs should be allowed and a bounty paid. Of cousre, video proof of wild pack behavior should be insisstented upon. How cowardly to leave the scene of the attack, just like a car hit and run, felony.

Must be a slow news day when the dogs get the attention in the news by a major newspaper? Now 's its the FBI's most wanted dog list? Don't approach the dog. He maybe carrying a weapon. His teeth.
