Frustrated Father Complains to City Council after Deadly Pit Bull Attack

A Northeast Jackson homeowner complained to the City Council last night about an animal control officer's refusal to seize three pit bulls after they jumped his fence, killed his pug, and attacked his family.





Jeremy Litton described the pit bulls' attack on his dog and his family earlier this month.  The dogs killed his pug in its own back yard, attacked him, and charged at a police officer.  Unfortunately, the animal control officer, Paul Perry, refused to seize the dogs but turned the dogs back over to their owner, Mike England.   JJ reported on January 7:


 The homeowner said the attack occurred on Friday morning at 7:10 at their home by the old Colonial Country Club. The back yard has a short-chain link fence that is common for the area.  The three pit bulls jumped the fence and  chewed up the small pug.  The dogs charged at the husband as he placed the injured in the dog in his car.

JPD arrived on the scene within ten minutes after the family called 911. The husband said  they were very professional and that Corporal Derrick Johnson was a "credit to JPD."  A pit bull charged at the police officer as he stood in the doorway.  The wife (identities will not be revealed) pulled him inside the house to close the door as there are three small children in the family.  Animal control found the dogs on Fairway Drive and seized them.

However, animal control almost immediately returned the vicious dogs to their owner on Parkway Drive. The husband said JPD Animal Control Officer Paul Perry said that he didn't seize such dogs on the first offense and that a judge would have to order him to do so.  He told the wife "What happened to your dog was dogs being dogs."    The wife read the ordinance* to Officer Perry as she demanded he seize the dogs.  She said Perry told her "That is not what I do." 

A neighbor of the family said the dogs attacked her at an earlier time.  She was walking home when they chased her and knocked her down.  A motorist honked his horn.  The sudden honking stopped the attack, giving her a chance to escape although they chased her to her door.
 This is not the first complaint submitted against Perry yet he still has a job.

Take the law into your own hands and put some buckshot in them. Screw a pit bull and screw a thug that owns them(White or black)

If that had been me that would have been the end of those dogs. I have the right to defend my family the pet who is also a part of my family.

The City of Jackson doesn't give a shit if dogs are killing your own pets in your own yard or animals at the zoo.

Remember Mr. Litton, you are a white man not only living in Hinds county, but also in the city of Jackson. It doesn't matter that you probably are current on your water bill.

The city o my cares about whitey from NE Jackson on tax day. Screw them other than that. As far as the pit bulls go. I would go mace those savages once no one is looking. Mr Perry sounds like a moron.

Just to point out how much our lovely mayor does not care, if you noticed, he walks out in the middle of this discussion. Kenny Stokes sits there motionless while his neighborhood is flooded with fighting pit bulls. They are on the loose intimidating neighbors and backyard organized dog fights go on right under his nose. They dare not challenge these dogs and their owners because those are the same people that continue to vote for them. If our City Councilman in Northeast Jackson had any pull, action would be taken. It is obvious he is powerless. he simply keeps the seat warm and nothing else.

A Street in Northeast Jackson was paved about a week ago. This repaving was paid for by the homeowners and taxpayers. However, some obnoxious fool placed a sign on the side of the newly re-paved street bragging about how the Hinds County Supvisor Robert Graham made that re-paving happen. No, the taxpayers made it happen. While Robert Graham brags about spending money that he took from us, please don’t forget that this is the same individual that while collecting a paycheck from the Jackson Police Department was also collecting a check as a 911 consultant out of town. Robert Graham is either a crook or has super hero powers. Otherwise, how could he be into places at one time?

@1:11 - You're right - and graham the legend probably put the sign out, or had one of his minions (e.g. girlfriends) do it.

Is it ironic that there is an ad with a ferocious tiger on this story? I would rather be in a tiger's pit at the Jxn Zoo than have to go up against three pitbulls. Or even one for that matter.

Quality of life issues like these do not fit the agenda of the mayor or the administration of the city. Wild dogs running loose are a part of "ghetto life". Gunshots and recreational shooting aren't that serious either. The larger issues, economic inequity, underfunded education, sanctuary for undocumented immigrants, racist imagery, rampant gentrification, etc. must be the focus of the "radical city". Dogs? Shoot the dogs. Hell, they shoot people in Jackson.

1:11 - I always think the same thing when I hear a public official patting themselves on the back for simply spending tax payer dollars. What an ego you must have to post a sign saying "look what I did for you" when using other peoples funds.

You should be able to sue government employees in cases like this. If true, the employee simply failed to do his job. Stupidity and laziness shouldn't be tolerated.

Graham would have been a far superior Chief Executive than the trainee Mayor Yammeralot has proven to be.

I grew up in Jackson and lived there until around 8 years ago. You couldn't pay me to move back into that sham of a city. I felt sympathy for the city at one time, but they keep re-electing the same jackasses that got them in this position in the first place. Screw 'em - let the city burn.

Pump your brakes their Tristan! This city is in a mess because of years and years of neglect. Hell, there are sewer lines that were installed in the 1920's - that are now just being updated!? What happened in the 60's, 70's, and 80's when white folks were running the show!?

Mississippi Code § 97-41-16, the Mississippi Dog and Cat Pet Protection Law of 2011, provides:

(a) Nothing in this section shall be construed as prohibiting a person from:
(i) Defending himself or herself or another person from physical or economic injury being threatened or caused by a dog or cat.
(ii) Injuring or killing an unconfined dog or cat on the property of the person, if the unconfined dog or cat is believed to constitute a threat of physical injury or damage to any domesticated animal under the care or control of such person.
(iii) Acting under the provisions of Section 95-5-19 to protect poultry or livestock from a trespassing dog that is in the act of chasing or killing the poultry or livestock, or acting to protect poultry or livestock from a trespassing cat that is in the act of chasing or killing the poultry or livestock.

10:28 It all depends on what you term the "mess" to be. I agree with you that the past regimes, the "white folks" kicked the can down the road and in most cases only had provided reasonable maintenance service to one-half the city. That created many unsolved problems which plague the city today. True. But the present mess is that the city leaders, the administration, is unable to fix any of the old problems while new ones are being created every day. It's like catching ebola and small pox while you're in the hospital for minor surgery. The tax base of the city has gone away and all the solutions these bozos can muster require a strong tax base. That's a mess.

I so feel for this family and how they were treated. However, it is what we have come to expect if you live in Jackson. There are hundreds of homes for sale in NE Jackson. People are trying to leave, and I hope they can. The sooner the better.

I looked up their ordinance and animal control failed to understand their own ordinance. It is very disturbing these pit bulls were relocated without being declared dangerous! Another city in in danger and does not even know it.

(a)"Dangerous dog" means any dog that:(1)Causes an injury to a person or domestic animal; or(2)Has been designated as a potentially dangerous dog and engages in behavior that poses a threat to public safety as described in paragraph (f) of this section.

10:28, last I checked, the 80s were over 30 years ago. Blame the current people in charge for over 20 years.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
