Kylar Johnson: Reportedly mauled to death by pit bulls.
An extensive search for a missing four-year-old Victoria boy ended in horrific fashion with the discovery of the boy's body earlier today. A family friend has told the Victoria Advocate that the boy was mauled to death by a pack of pit bulls belonging to a neighbor.

As his father was cleaning a car in the front yard last night around sundown, Johnson wandered away. Accompanied by search dogs and over two dozen deputies, the Johnson family spent all night and all this foggy predawn morning searching back roads and tall-grass prairies near semi-rural Old Goliad Road, frantically calling out the boy's name. They had hoped that Johnson had toddled into an abandoned house or crawled into a drainage pipe. At 10:40 a.m., the morning's full sun brought forth the grisly truth.

A justice of the peace has been brought to the scene, and deputies have cordoned off the site where Johnson's body was found.

A press conference is reportedly ongoing in Victoria at this writing; if any more details become available, Hair Balls will report them.

God Bless the family & friends of this awful injustice ! I am the friend to a mother who also lost her 7 yr old son to a pit bull mauling, he was walking to the car to get his backpack when he was attacked by 3 loose pitbulls & killed. Who is the idiot on here who claims to have watched a golden retreiver kill a lil boy, You couldn't do anything but watch.... sad I would of risked my life to help a child being visiously killed.God help our children & help regulate Pitbulls so these dumb owners are held liable & have insurance to pay for funerals.

Was planning to respond to the first moron who objected, but there were three more!

Facts are, according to SPCA, and FBI crime stats (they don't classify dog attacks as criminal but do track numbers) pit bulls account for somewhere between 3% and 4.5% of dogs in the US. They are responsible for between 80% and 85% of human injuries (and over 90% of fatalities). You have to be a complete fucking moron not to realize they are a breed completely unsuited to human cohabitation. It doesn't make them evil, just dangerous to have around people just like Dingos, Wolves, Coyotes, Fila Brasileros, or any of hundreds of other breeds bred for power and aggression.

As long as ignorant "look at the size of MY dog" pieces of shit keep them in close contact with people this shit will keep happening. And as long as fucking morons like you all keep defending them..

Get over it Redneck_babe07 -- they quarantined the dog and the sheriff has officially announced that this is "yet another" fatal pit bull mauling. http://bit.ly/GRWmRg

 Somehow, I think that this would have been a warm and fuzzy encounter if they owned Labs..

Because the boy was found dead by the fucking pit bulls owned by dipshit should have been shot neighbors who think having vicious worthless animals makes them "cool".

Come on already, stop with the stupid "there are no bad dogs" crap. Less than 5% of owned dogs are pit bulls, over 80% of humans injured by dogs are injured by pit bulls. Do the math, and get a fucking clue.

It is very sad the events that has happend and that an innocent young life has been take so soon from this world. But The sheriff has said that it is to early to speculate that the attack came from a pit bull. Befor we go and start attacking any breed of animal we need to do a little more investigating on the matter. We need to be sending our prayers to the family and friends of young Kyler. Not trying to do the job of the investagators

The thugs/trash tend to actually know what they have.  They want a pit because it is dangerous and intimidating.  The real dangerous ones now are the naive hippie, rescue angel, furry mommies that want it so badly to be true that ALL DOGS are equal and every dog attack is the responsibility of some evil human that they have basically lost their minds. They are dangerous because they spread the lies and try to encourage people with kids to get these dogs because it's "all how you raise them" and other vacuous bumper sticker like phrases that pollute their atrophied minds.

As you implied, dog breeds were created for particular purposes and it shows in their behavior.  Pit bulls were created for blood sports.  It is part of the historic record.  They acquired through selective breeding: 1. gameness (willingness to fight for no reason even while taking punishment), 2. high pain threshold, 3. dog-directed aggression, 4. bite-hold-shake attack style, and 5. decreased bite inhibition.  

People will say that man-biters were culled so that handlers could touch the dogs in the ring and that pits were nanny dogs.  Both are either lies or deception.  The nanny dog claim has ZERO historic evidence to back it up.  It is simply asserted.  The man-biters were culled thing is a myth in that many famous lines contain man biters and they were kept by the dogmen so long as they made them money.  Colby, one of the most famous pit breeder of all time, kept a dog that killed his nephew and bred him into a famous line that persists to this day.  Further, culling man biters is really a meme that tries to hijack the entire premise of dog domestication.  Do these pit idiots actually think biting wolves were bred in our early attempts at domestication?  So we had tame dogs to start with but then people selected them for the fighting pit and now you have the dog that is the breed most likely to kill or maul you.

Yep, these pit bull owners are like the parents of murders.  Their child can be caught with a dead body in the trunk and the parents will say "well maybe he was trying to help them to the hospital".  Pit bull owners never make a case that is convincing to anyone besides those vacuous enough to own the breed that kills the most humans each year.  It's really getting to the point that if you own one of these things you deserve expletives hurled at you in public.

You obviously don't know a goddamned thing. You live "close?" Were you out there that morning? I didn't think so. You wouldn't be so quick to defend someone who keeps 7 pit bulls chained in his back yard so they can have little to no social interaction, which is exactly how you make a fighting dog. Good job. Do some research. Better yet, lose your computer..and your opinion.

Wow, the way you talk you seem semi-literate and aggressive.  Yeah, people are really going to take you seriously.  The guy with the pits is a hog dogger.  They are inhumane scum and all serious hunters treat them like the pariah that they are.  Now go google pariah.

The little wondered in the yard, the animal probably got spooked and did what was instict/reaction! Fuck off, like yu know the ppl, so quick to judge! The media got a lot of the info wrong because thats what their supposed to do, fuck the media, they never get shit RIGHT!

I personally know the father, the uncle and the grandmother. Do you know where Victoria is? Do you know where Old Goliad Road is? Do you know how far away this "neighbor" was? Were you at the funeral? Did you see the open casket? Did you see his grandmother, who's dying of cancer, throw herself to the ground in convulsions when she and the rest of us part of the search team heard the news? I didn't think so. Step off you sad piece of worthless judgement.

OK, you know what? I'm gonna keep being friends with Dane and Barbara. And I'm gonna comfort them in their time of need. By all means, you go ahead and go comfort those dogs. In fact, get right up close to them and cuddle. I'll tell everyone it was a love bite when you lose your hand.

Once again, the media got nothing wrong. Pit bulls attacked the boy. Pit bulls killed the boy. I was a part of the search team. I was there. Keep your stupid mouth shut. And like I said, I do know the people.

It actually is true. The notable thing about your story is that it is notable. My first reaction is to doubt you, only because vicious attacks by Golden Retrievers are so rare it is more likely a person would witness a child being struck by lightning. A fatal attack is so rare you are more likely to see the child struck by a meteor. I'm not calling you a liar, I'm just saying attacks like that by Golden Retrievers are almost unheard of, unlike attacks by Pit Bulls.

That is actually not true. I witnessed a Golden Retriever maul a little boy to death who was in a soccer field with his dad. The dog came out of the neighborhood by it and just mauled the shit out of the kid. It wasn't tortured, in fact, it was coming out of an upper middle class neighborhood. Hardly a place where you can imagine a dog being tortured on the daily.

It is only odd to someone like Truth12 that fighting breeds are more likely to react when spooked by killing someone.  Pit bulls kill people more often.  It's a fact jack.  You have to socialize and train a pit bull to not be dangerous versus a dog like the average golden retriever has to literally be tortured to be dangerous.

Steve Carol

You're totally full of excuses.  A vicious animal killed a little boy.  Pit bulls suck.  No person with common sense would own one.  The jury is in on that one, just nobody told you.
