Pit Bull Pack Attack in Northeast Jackson

A pack of three pit bulls jumped into a Northeast Jackson resident's back yard, killed a small dog, and then chased the family.  Unfortunately, the JPD animal control officer refused to seize the dogs but instead returned them to the owner.  Good boy!


The family posted these messages on Facebook.






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.

The husband saw a pit bull tied up in the front yard of the Parkway home on Saturday.  He called JPD.  Corporal Johnson arrived and called animal control.  An animal control officer arrived on scene.  He would not give his name although he eventually provided his badge number.   Officer Perry eventually arrived but said he wouldn't take him without the owner's permission.   The homeowner claimed the pit bull was not his and eventually let JPD take the dog. 

*Section 18-56 of the Jackson Municipal Code states:

(a) Authority to seize; confinement period. An unrestrained dog or a nuisance animal shall be taken by the police or animal control officers and impounded in an enclosure or animal shelter kept for that purpose, to be provided and maintained by the city, and there confined in a humane manner. Such an animal shall be kept for at least eight days unless sooner claimed by the owner. Impounded dogs and cats not suffering from an incurable injury or disease shall be kept for not less than eight working days.   

Section 18-58 states: 

In case of an attack by any animal resulting in injury to any person, such animal shall be impounded by the animal control department for observation for a period of ten days, or the owner of such animal may, upon notification to the animal control department, have such animal impounded for ten days with a private veterinarian licensed to practice veterinary medicine within the state. If at the end of such period of time, or any time prior thereto, it is determined that the animal has rabies, such animal shall be immediately destroyed. 

Section 18-101 defines a dangerous dog: 
(f)"Potentially dangerous dog" means a dog that may reasonably be assumed to pose a threat to public safety as demonstrated by any of the following behaviors:
(1) Without provocation, chasing or menacing a person or domestic animal in an aggressive manner; (KF: Does killing a dog count? It's not mentioned.)
(2) Running at large and impounded or owners cited by the animal control authority two or more times within any 12-month period.

 Kingfish note: If the police will not help people protect their families, lock and load.  These dogs should be shot if they are seen running in the streets in Northeast Jackson again.  Period.

Pit bull Mom here.

I'm real sick of the discrimination against this loving and gentle breed. I don't have a husband or kids but I have 3 sweet baby bullies and they wouldn't hurt a fly. Bad owners can make any breed vicious.

Ban bad pit bull owners! That is one of my many tattoos.

No offense but you sound a bit "off". But I digress. The main point here is if you live in Jackson and don't have a gun and know how to use it...you're asking for trouble. To the deceased dog's owner: I am very sorry for your tragic loss.

sadly I doubt if there is any hope of $ for VET bills. scum bag probably chains them to a tree in a mud hole. the number of unneutered and loose dogs in Jackson is really depressing.

@9:55, I'm sad to say that one day we'll be reading a similar story about how you've been attacked by your own dogs. The dogs in the story, haven proven their propensity for violence, should have been killed on the spot. BTW - nobody cares about your tattoos, or bad life choices.

My understanding is that the owner paid for the vet bill.

There are far too many ignorant undisciplined people in Jackson who do not keep track of their own children much less a potentially dangerous animal that needs professional training and care. Wild poodles roaming the streets of South Jackson are one thing, wild pit bulls are another.

JPD’s administration cares as much about a fully functional animal control unit as they do about fixing these potholes. Visit animal control any day of the week to find the neglect from the city administration. I have volunteered there and the conditions are substandard for the humans and animals. No, excuse for not complying to the ordinance but it speaks volumes on the neglected issues of this department.

Pit bull or not these dogs were viscous and killed another small dog. They could be any other breed but they happen to be pitbulls. Yes, pitbulls can be kind and obedient, but these 3 aren’t and that’s just that. The owner should have to hold some kind of responsibility for having dogs that act like this running free

^^^ This. If my lab, who has had extensive obedience and retriever training in the thousands of dollars range, attacked another dog or person viciously, I would spare the cost and put .22 caliber to his head. At the end of the day, a dog is a dog and just like people, if they attack and harm, they should be dealt with.

There are a bazillion breeds of dogs. Pit Bulls, dobies, and the like should be extinct. There are plenty of other mild dog breeds to choose.

You can't sue if they have no insurance, which if they are renting, most likely they don't. Most homeowners policies exclude certain breeds or won't write your coverage for Pits, Chows and Dobermans. Your right, wait till they attack the owner then she will blame it on everything but the dog.

I'm so sorry that Pugsley died. He was just going what he was supposed to be doing - guarding his house/yard and being a loving companion to his family - and should never have been subjected to this violent ending.

If this happened to me, I would shoot the $^*(#&^#$ dogs and drape their dead bodies over the owner's front porch along with a demand letter for my vet bills and any other expenses.

I'm a pit bull owner , have been for 20+ years. Pits are animal aggressive. That's how they were bread. Not people agressive. All dog breads bite people all dog breads fight other dogs. Cats fight cats . Bitds fight other birds. Bad owners are to blame when the dog is on the street .. Not teaching a dog his place in the family. All bad ownership. My daughter got 12 stitches from a parrot. ( Kill all parrots?) If a dog any dog is deamed agressive , it should be put down . Mexicans are doing a lot worse here in America . Iowa just had a instance. Let's start putting them down .

This is one more example of the Black culture loving violence. Kind of like the grocery store video. They always love evil, violence and breaking the law.

White trash also has a love for these animals, so its not just a black thing, but primarily, it is.

I would have shot them immediately even if I found them in the owners yard.

I allowed this comment to show how stupid you are.

The pit bulls' owner is white. Daddy was a stalwart of NE Jackson when he died in his 90's a few years ago. Junior has probably lived in that house for thirty years as it belonged to his dad.

But yeah, blame the black folks.

You are spot on. You can't blame black folks for pitbulls. White people created the breed. And a matter of fact, I don't think there is a breed of dog created by African Americans. Animal husbandry are the realms of people of Asian and European descent.

Owning violent animals and even promoting animal fighting IS a black culture thing. Remember that Vick bastard ?

Who was the "sista" that got all pissed not long ago when a law was being crafted to make dog fighting a crime?

I remember she admitted dog fighting was part of the homeboy culture and should be legal.

Well kingfish to be fair 1:29 no doubt covered the basis when he said white trash likes these dogs too. I’m sure a white guy with three pit bulls would qualify as “white trash” to most of us. Anywho I have a black neighbor who is very dear to me that taught me how to deal with loose pit bulls. It’s an old fashioned method so brace yourself: when you see them loose break up glass and mixed it in with ground beef. They can’t resist and it works every time. They won’t drop dead in your yard so nobody knows you did it. Normally they go home to die.

1:24 Hey Bozo. Parrots do not have jaws especially bred (bread to you) for crushing and killing. They are not especially likely to clamp down and tear away flesh and maim the target of it's attack. An individual pit bull may be
the most loving and friendly animal in the neighborhood, but it may not be. If it is not, it can be a menace beyond reason. Why take the chance, when there are so many other breeds less dangerous?

I am a pitbull advocate-most of them are very loyal, loving dogs. However, in EVERY breed there are vicious individual dogs. These dogs are not a good breed ambassador and due to the unprovoked attack on this Pug, and on humans, they need to be seized and destroyed. Blame it on whoever you want to, but these dogs would never be adoptable.

Correct. Every breed of dog can bite. But no breed bites like a pit bull. If a lab bites you, it won’t crush bone. A pit bull will.

I had an ex-girlfriend who had an especially vicious chihuahua that attacked me and tore the hell out of a good pair of socks. I kicked his little ass into the next room. Had no more trouble from the vicious dog but lost the girl. End of story.

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity for an up-and-coming lawyer to start calculating damages. By the looks of the pictures provided, Pugsy had many good, good years of life left to spend with owner.

With all the dogs and broken fences in Jackson, someone can really carve out a nice little practice on animal cannibal cases like this.

If a menacing dog gets in my yard and I feel threatened his immediate future will be determined by how quickly he leaves compared to how fast I can get to a safe position to shoot. Anyone who loves their dog should take adequate care of them and that includes keeping them well fenced in. And for anyone opposed to shooting an aggressive dog pepper spray will usually send them running home but you must get within a few feet of them and the wind can blow the spray into your own face.

BTW, this Pitt Bull reality TV program is as lame brained as the rest of 'Reality TV.' Will we see a group demanding the protection of snapping turtles soon?

The law clearly states what the police should do about vicious dogs and they did not.

If there is a vicious dog ordinance on the books Pugsley owners could press charges, and I hope they do.

Do any of you remember the small boy that was drug into the pit bull's doghouse and killed in South Jackson? It was dusk and children were playing in the yard while adults visited, if I remember right. Probably about 10 or 12 years ago. Still makes me sick to think about. You can defend pit bull's all day, and it won't bring this child back. Many instances have occurred with this breed and people just don't listen.

BTW, Kingfish, "The owner paid..." Which owner? The pug's owner or the pit bull's owner?

Here is the Hinds County ordinance that deals with this:
https://www.dogsbite.org/pdf/ms-hinds-county-pit-bull-ordinance-2010.pdf

Maybe the owner has a special permit... but I doubt it.

We live in Jackson, and sadly, you need to understand, you are on your own here. Do not expect any government services, on any level, or you will be bitterly disappointed.

On several occasions, we've had neighbors who let their vicious dogs roam. One very large bully mix threatened me in my own yard. Another attacked my elderly dog (who'd just had surgery) in my own yard. Both owners were warned in NO uncertain terms NOT to let their dog get on my property again. Both reappeared on my property within 24 hours after said warning. Neither has ever been seen again...

This is an owner issue, not a dog issue, but do what you must to protect you and yours. It sounds like the owner in this case actually has assets, so MAKE. HIM. PAY. He obviously doesn't care about you, but maybe he'll care about keeping his money. Do it before some kid gets mauled and bit in the face.

Good luck.

I haven't looked it up in 15 years - are dogs still considered chattel under Mississippi law? If so, not much damage here except the cost of replacing a pug and maybe vet bills.

Might as well add German Shepherds too. I find it disgusting when pet owners regurgitate the old saying that their fur baby is harmless. Harmless while the owner is present should be the emphasis.

Call me a sadist, but if a pest is using your yard as a personal toilet then it deserves a glass burger. If it bites someone it should be exterminated immediately.

This piece of “journalism” is one of the sickest, most disgusting works I have ever read. It reflects the hopelessly ignorant and ill-informed, backward thinking of most of the state of Mississippi, dominated by precepts accepted as truth by Farm Bureau and a constituency that elects politicians that they deserve. A number of years ago, the comedian Jerry Lewis shared that his greatest joy would come from flying over Mississippi while urinating. This column has now made his case, and I applaud it!

3:44 PM, in my extended family, there was a woman from a prominent family in Cuba. She had a much better recipe for "Hamburger Surprise" than yours. Along with the hamburger and lightbulb, mix-in some RAT POISON. This causes the intestinal bleeding to be far more intense, since the rat poison is an anticoagulant. I think her grandfathers used "Hamburger Surprise" on slaves or political prisoners. But she used it on the neighbors' dogs.

Good God, the internet heroes, keyboard commandos, out in force.

Ground glass doesn't do shit to dogs or human. It's been proven ineffective since 1642. I'd be the first to shoot a vicious dog, but spare us your bullcrap fake heroics.

Here, a JAMA article from 1918. One hundred years ago.

December 28, 1918
THE EFFECT OF "GROUND GLASS" ON THE GASTRO-INTESTINAL TRACT OF DOGS
JAMES S. SIMMONS, M.D. (Philadelphia); WILLIAM C. von GLAHN, M.D. (Baltimore)
JAMA. 1918;71(26):2127-2128. doi:10.1001/jama.1918.02600520013006

Not a single case found of actual harm.

Another science site:

"In 1642, the writer and physician, Sir Thomas Browne, described in his book, Pseudodoxia Epidemica, how he tested this myth on dogs – and how he debunked it. (I guess he didn’t have to deal with a Grants Committee or an Ethics Committee). He wrote, “That Glass is poison, according unto common conceit, I know not how to grant … from experience, as having given unto Dogs above a dram thereof, subtilly (sic) powdered in Butter and Paste, without any visible disturbance”.

More recently, in 1916, a poisoner in New York City testified that he had tried to use ground glass to kill people, but that it had proved to be useless.

Since then, many people have written about this supposed toxicity of ground glass, but probably the nicest summary comes from Dr. D. P. Lyle, who wrote the enticingly-entitled Forensics for Dummies. In another of his books, Murder and Mayhem, A Doctor Answers Medical and Forensic Questions for Mystery Writers, he answers the ground glass conundrum.

He writes that “very fine glass is unlikely to cause any lethal damage to the Gastro Intestinal tract … Even with coarser glass, the bleeding would probably not be massive or life-threatening, but slow and (would) lead to anaemia and fatigue.”

But, but, heh heh, mah "Poor Man James Bond" tol' me......

As a forensic scientist wrote, if you want to kill someone with glass, you better use a broken bottle.

Anonymous said...

10:34. He didn’t say to ground up glass for poison he said to break it up to I guess incur internal bleeding. Typically you don’t want to just shoot pit bulls as their owners are sketchy types and you want to be anonymous in your killing. Nice book though. Don’t be mad I didn’t read it all

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.
