“Nuttercide” is a term coined by the DogsBite.org community, and like the term piticide, refers to a pit bull homicide. In the 6-year period from 2005 to 2010, there were 104 piticides, one American killed by a pit bull every 21 days. Nuttercide is a subset of this unfortunate group and refers to pit bull owners (pit nutters) who are brutally struck down and killed by their once “loyal” pit bull. Breed advocates likely describe such incidents as the owner being “loved to death” by his pit bull, as opposed to being “licked to death.”
