A woman on the 1600 block of Spring Court called police at 6:13 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, and told police that her neighbor’s pit bull entered her backyard and killed her Chihuahua. Animal control officers were contacted, and will investigate to determine if the pit bull owner should be required to surrender the dog.

Tracy police received 194 calls for service Wednesday, Feb. 6. The following is a sample of those reports.

2:03 a.m.: A woman on the 100 block of Yosemite Drive told police that a red mark appeared on her driver’s license photo, making it appear like she had her throat cut. She believes someone is performing “black magic” against her. Police checked it out and noted that it did not appear that anyone had tampered with her license.

9:01 a.m.: Someone on the 800 block of Shelborne Drive told police that a man had a gun and was in his house with his 19-month-old son. The man said he didn’t have a gun and exited the house with his hands up when police arrived. No arrest was made.

1:03 p.m.: Police arrested a 37-year-old man on suspicion of making threats after he allegedly threatened to burn down Walmart, 3050 Grant Line Road. The man had been seen hanging around the area for a few days, and store employees reportedly refused to sell him cigarettes because he did not have identification. Police took him to San Joaquin County Jail, where he was held on $150,000 bail pending a court hearing Friday, Feb. 8, in Manteca.

"Pit-bulls are inbred dogs, and many of their owners here in Tracy seem to suffer from the same condition."

If pit bulls are such wonderful family dogs, why have they been banned in 12 countries? That's right, 12. Belgium; Brazil; Denmark; Finland; France; Canada (Winnipeg, Quebec); the Netherlands; New Zealand; Norway; Poland; Puerto Rico (a commonwealth of the United States); and Sweden.

The pit bull is rightfully banned from these smart countries because it is a very aggressive, fearless, vicious, bloodthirsty attack dog that has no place in civilized society.

Putting a pit bull in a family setting with small children is a recipe for tragedy.

Ask your postman who dilvers.

Got no real beef against pit bulls but had ta comment on "smart" countries? Really? Smart? Incidentally, Puerto Rico is a territory of th United States, not a commonwealth. Thairs a difference. An no, thair not "inbred" any more than other breeds of dogs. Like any dog, they tend ta behave th way they are raised by thair human owners. Granted thair jaw muscles are stronger than many other breeds, meanin thair bites tend ta be more serious, but thair not really any more aggressive than any other breed of dog. They get a bad rap primarily because of th way thair owners raise them.

Use ta raise Chihuahuas an unfortunately had ta put one of th males down because he was a biter. Wasn't really all his fault because of th people who raised him before they gave him ta me.

As far as inbred people are concerned it seems that two of em have posted their venom here already.

Leo, with you comment about the postman it's obvious you know nothing about dogs in general. They are all territorial. Their reaction to the postman is a warning to "stay out of my territory". My old springer spaniel barks at anyone that come to my door but the minute I show up he stops as well as the rest of my dogs. That's what dogs do.

I cant stand Chihuahua owners, especially the ones who let them run around the neighborhood like feral cats. I had to shoot my neighbors Chihuahua with a sling shot, because my neighbor things it has a right to poo in my yard.

This is not Mexico people!

In regards to the story about the neighbors Pit Bull attacking and killing the Chihuahua, most definitely the Pit Bull should be surrendered, since it did attack and kill a neighbors dog. It sounds like it is vicious, and if it is not impounded what might happen next, it attacking a person or a child, this is just common sense.

Th dog should be impounded regardless of what breed it is, that's just common sense.
