News Pit Bulls Should be Boiled Alive Like Lobsters and Fed to Their Idiot Owners

I know that headline—pit bulls should be boiled alive like lobsters and fed to their idiot owners—pisses off all the responsible pit bull owners among Slog’s readership. But perhaps even pit bull owners would be willing to make an exception this time?
A teenager was taken to a hospital Thursday evening after a pit bull ran from a Beacon Hill house and attacked him, according to a police report.
The boy told police he got off a Metro bus at 5:20 p.m. and was walking home when the dog ran out of a house in the 3200 block of South Portland Street and attacked him in the street. The dog bit him on the right forearm, right calf, stomach and left hand, causing numerous puncture wounds, according to the report, which was released this weekend.
Police investigated after the boy was treated at Swedish Medical Center. An officer contacted the pit bull’s owner, who told police the dog ran out of the house when the victim walked by and attacked him, according to the report. The woman told police the 1-year-old dog is usually chained, but had been inside the house with an open door.
The woman “did not apologize for the dog’s actions,” the officer wrote is the report.
