“Emerald Nutter”

In the longstanding tradition of Nutters, including pre-Nutter, post-Nutter, Stockholm Nutter, Nikko-Nutter and Super Nutter, a new brand of Super Nutter evolved from Texas City, Texas on November 15, 2014 and is termed “Emerald Nutter.” An Emerald Nutter, named after pit bull owner Emerald White, is a Super Nutter that sues the victim after her four pit bulls tear through a victim’s fence and rip the victim’s dog to pieces on the victim’s own property then sues the victim for $1 million dollars. You read that correctly.

Even the Psychic Gerbil stumbled on this one, at one point declaring, “Texas nutter stumps Psychic Gerbil!” The Inquisitr has nothing kind to say about Emerald White of Texas City nor do over 7 thousand Yahoo commenters (and still growing). Common responses include, “I had to re-read the story because it just didn’t make sense!” and “Wow. Just wow. The nerve of this chick!” and “What a low life that pitbull owner is” and “This is so OUTRAGEOUS!” and finally, “THINGS LIKE THIS MAKE MY STOMACH TURN!”

Emerald White is the owner of four pit bulls. In October, the dogs got loose and found their way into the yard of Steve Baker. The Bakers owned a beagle named Bailey, who was 10 years old at the time. Bailey never stood a chance when Emerald’s dogs attacked, but now in an unusual twist, she is suing Baker for up to $1 million in damages, according to court documents. The Galveston County Daily News reports that Emerald White claims “she was ‘seriously injured’ after she was ‘unexpectedly and viciously attacked’ when she entered the Baker’s backyard to retrieve her dogs, which had entered through a hole in the mutual fence separating the two properties.” – Inquisitr, Pit Bull Owner Emerald White’s Dogs Killed A Beagle, Now She’s Suing The Victim

An Emerald Nutter trumps a Super Nutter (and a spicy Pit Grifter), but is merely an extension of the Nutter thought process: “Society must be responsible for my decision and choice to own pit bulls — four of them.” After I lose control of my four pit bulls and they chew through your fence and attack and kill your 10-year old dog on your own property (and attack and injure me in the process too), I have the right to sue you for $1 million dollars in damages. That is the thought process of an Emerald Nutter.

Emerald White is right about one thing, she will need a bucket of cash to keep her pit bulls. After the attack, Texas City officials declared all four of her dogs dangerous. The declaration requires White to obtain a secure enclosure for each dog that is at least 6 feet high (with a mechanical locking device), each dog must be registered with the city annually as a dangerous dog, a sign must be posted in White’s yard alerting residents of her dangerous dogs and she must also obtain $100,000 liability insurance on each dog.

“Nutters in need”

Who do Nutters in need contact when they fear their pit bull will be confiscated? Who do they trust as an ally for this vital information? Presented are a collection of emails sent to DogsBite.org by Nutters in need. Do they find their state BSL page (example) through web searches and mistake DogsBite as an ally? Seems unlikely. These emails are typically ignored and show the multi-Nutter mentalities: apologist, narcissist, pitthetic, OPIG, etc.

The list topper is Nutter in need Pamela Six (aka “SCREW EM ALL”) who recently appeared on TV with a “pittie me” plea to keep her pit bull. This is a severely modified attitude than her previous emails, which referred to city officials as a, “BUNCH OF IDIOTS” and “one old fart on the city council” and “don’t know crap from a hill of beans” and “add this lousy town to your list.” Kudos to the City of Elma for enforcing their pit bull ban!

Hi my name is Brooke ██████ and I was doing some research for a paper in school. I know that Stanberry Mo has laws against pit bulls, I had two for four years then all of a sudden took me to court and charged me with having them. They also listed about ten other dogs they said was not allowed inside of city limits. Including Rottweiler’s, Mastiff’s, and American Bulldogs or any “mixed breed” of the dogs mentioned before. I would like to be able to tell you the rest of the list but I’m not exactly for sure and don’t want to give you false information.

Yesterday I was getting a insurance quote for home insurance.
I have a pitbull mix and a Yorkshire terrior. The insurance company rep at allstate asked me if I had any dogs she said that they cannot give me a policy if I have a german shepard, rotweiler or pit bull. Is this true. The city and township I live in has no ban on pit bulls or any zoning laws I even called them to make sure of this!
Also can a insurance company raise the cost of my policy if I have a pit bull?
My dog has never bit anyone or any animal also!

I am questioning whether you know of any regulations regarding child custody and pit bulls. A good friend of mine had taken emergency custody of her two nieces in August of 2011. They have been working with DCF, and have completed all steps to move towards adoption. They were informed 3 weeks ago that they would not be allowed to keep the girls if they did not get rid of missy. Missy is a pit. She is 3. This dog would not hurt a fly. She is great with kids especially. They live in ██████, and the girls lived in ██████ when they were taken. My friend and her husband have been working with ██████ DCF offices. ██████ has no problem with Missy. She is well behaved. The ██████ worker is the one who said she would not allow them to keep the kids if they did not get rid of the dog. They say that this is the last regulation they need to comply with before they can adopt the girls. Do you have any advice?

Thought: Yes! A couple that “truly” cared about the girls and their safety would have dumped the pit immediately!

Dear Dogsbite.org,

My friend’s family pet of 10 years, a pit bull, was murdered by Illinois State Police when they broke in his front door in the wee hours of the morning to serve a search warrant and to arrest his daughter on a drug charge. The cops found nothing in the search of the house and only accomplished the murder of a much loved family pet, (they shot him twice on the floor of the living room).

The cops claimed it is the law in Illinois that if they ever encounter a pit bull they have the right to shoot it on sight– no questions asked— regardless of whether the dog is a threat to them or not. If that is true then it appears that it is OPEN SEASON in Illinois on pit bulls.

This incident occurred about 3 weeks ago in Romeoville IL, in Will County, about 35 miles SW of Chicago. Also in the room at the time of the murder was an eight year old little boy who had to watch his pet get its head blown apart for barking at the cops who busted in the door instead of ringing the doorbell.

My question is this: Is there a law in Illinois that allows the cops, or in this case the State Police, the right to shoot on sight any pit bull they find in a personal residence? Please let me know so I can tell my friend if he should hire a lawyer and be ready to get rich.

thanks,

Jim T.

Hi,

I’m considering moving to Larkspur, CO for work but have 3 pit mixes. I didn’t see any anti-pit laws for Larkspur, but need to be sure, as I will protect my dogs with every fiber of my being. My two oldest are 13 & 14 yrs old, & my 3rd is a rescued bait dog. I know what crazed anti-pit fanatics Denver has, & need to be sure Larkspur is safe for my babies before moving for work.

Macon, Missouri which is north of Columbia on 63 north has a ban on pit bulls that allows the police to kill the dog, and then you can face probation and up to a $500 fine. They do this even if the dog is only part pit bull. It is ridiculous how they go about it! If a police officer suspects that your dog has any pit in it, they take it and terminate the canine. Please advise me how to get this changed!

“Nutter”

Over time, the original term, Pit Nutter, has been shortened to simply Nutter. Like the original term, Nutter embodies the same meaning: “The hallmark trait of the pit nutter is their unwillingness to accept the genetic heritage of the pit bulldog (It’s all how you raise ‘em!) or their inability to see the death and destruction their pit bulldogs create as anything other than collateral damage that the rest of society must absorb so that the pit nutter can enjoy the freedom of owning a killing machine.”

In 2013, however, the term “Nutter” sharpened to distinguish the purveyors of untruthful pit bull myths. In a June new release, “It’s Time for the Pit Bull ‘Recall’ Too,” attorney Kenneth Phillips states the distinction, “Unfortunately, pit bull lovers have neglected the problem for too long. Worse, they have alienated the general public by failing to denounce the “nutters” who spread misinformation about the members of this breed, which generally are not “nanny dogs,” service dogs, or rescue dogs.”

Some Nutters are intelligent, some are not, while others are mindless drones, circulating false myths about the pit bull breed because they have been directed to (See: Best Friends Animal Society). The primary demographic of Nutters are Caucasian women. Frequently young women of the child-bearing years (18 to 30-years old) with a natural draw to “mother” or “rescue” just about anything, in this case stockpiles of unwanted pit bulls that continuously flood U.S. open admission shelters.

Terms sharing the Nutter base include: Stockholm Nutter, Super Nutter, Nikko Nutter, pre-Nutter and post-Nutter.

“Stockholm Nutter”

Stockholm Nutter is derived from the base term “Nutter” (short for Pit Nutter) and is part of several combined terms, such as Super Nutter, Nikko-Nutter, pre-Nutter and post-Nutter. A Stockholm Nutter is exactly what it suggests: A pit bull owner who has been at the receiving end of the death and destruction these dogs inflict, but still has empathy, sympathy and positive feelings for the breed. Wikipedia describes Stockholm syndrome as a form of “traumatic bonding” that does not necessarily require a hostage scenario.

Meet Patricia (Trisha) Williams of Waukesha. In June 2011, Williams, then 52-years old, was brutally attacked by one of her two pet pit bulls, named Prince. The dog nearly killed her. Williams was airlifted to a trauma level hospital where she spent over two months recovering from her injuries. The pit bull took out her whole knee among other atrocities.  In March 2013, she told media members that she still wished Prince was still alive — police shot and killed the animal when they arrived on scene. Williams kept Prince’s mother.

“I was playing ball with him, chasing him around the backyard. I brought him in to put him in the kennel and he didn’t want to go in. He turned around and was attacking me — I think he blacked out (classic Stockholm excuse!) … I miss him. I never thought [Prince] was bad. I don’t blame anybody for it, it’s just something that happened.” – Trisha Williams

Trisha Williams

More Stockholm Nutters

“Moss spent Tuesday afternoon in the hospital, getting stitches, but Wednesday she’s right back at the shelter, saying she just can’t stay away and she’s missing Rex [the pit bull that attacked her], a dog she spent a lot of time with. ‘I don’t blame the [pit bull] one bit, if he was still here today, I would love him. I tended to that dog for 9 days and he was part of me,’ Moss said.”  – Smith County, Texas Shelter Director Nanette Moss
“Mending at home a week after being badly bitten by a pit bull she was fostering in her home, the town’s assistant animal control officer remains distraught over signing the order to put the animal to death. ‘I loved that dog,’ Shea Cavacini said. ‘I’m going to blame myself forever.’ … ‘If they hadn’t applied the tourniquets, I might not have my arm.’ … ‘This is not a breed-specific thing,’ Cavacini said.” – Shea Cavacini, Griswold, Connecticut assistant animal control officer

“Super Nutter”

As opposed to just a plain old pit nutter — now commonly seen shortened and also capitalized to the single term “Nutter” — a Super Nutter was coined by writer Snack Sized Dog in a December 2012 blog post on Craven Desires, Who will be the Austin TX Next Top Nutter? The post names three Super Nutters, persons and organizations who have demonstrated or advanced exponential Nutter endeavors: Austin Animal Services, Christopher Grant and State Representative Eddie Rodriguez, D-Austin (District 51).

Austin Animal Services – You couldn’t find a more pit bull lovin’ & promotin’ organization than Austin Animal Services and their little buddy Austin Pets Alive! You’d also be hard pressed to find an organization so audaciously and brazenly contemptuous of the hand that feeds it. It takes major balls to take tax payers’ money for the stated purpose of adopting out more large dogs with behavior problems back into those tax payers’ neighborhoods
Christopher Grant – ‘handicapable’ GRANT has trained his own dogs, including the two service pits himself. Look at these training videos. First, as a responsible owner, he builds a very high fence (Title of video: Freestyle walking). And then he trains his dogs to scale it. And in this one, he teaches his service dogs to pull him around on a bike (Title of the video, Urban Sled).
State Rep. Eddie Rodriguez – He could have looked at the carnage CHRIS ‘walking clusterfuck’ GRANT has wrought and publicly demanded that the full force of Lillian’s law be brought to bear … He could have decided to file a bill that penalizes people for fraudulently claiming their pets are service dogs … RODRIGUEZ is now set to file a bill that will make sure that the next CHRIS GRANT will be allowed to force the City of Austin to spend tax-payer money to fight an appeal to keep the mauling pit bulls in their neighborhood.

Other Super Nutters that come to mind prior to this enhanced terminology include Greg Napora whose pregnant wife was brutally killed by the couple’s pet pit bull. Napora told the media after her death that he planned to bury her (and her unborn child) with her murderer.

“A day after the family’s pit bull fatally attacked his pregnant wife, Greg Napora said Friday he doesn’t blame the dog. He even plans to bury his spouse, Darla, with their pet’s cremated remains in her casket. “They are the most loving animals I have ever had in my life. Whatever happened right now was not the breed’s fault,” said Napora, who found his wife dead when he returned to the couple’s Pacifica home from his construction job with plans to take her to lunch Thursday. “It was just a freak accident.” – Greg Napora

In December 2015, “fiance” Matthew Grattan joined the team. After the horrific mauling death of Rebecca Hardy of Port Huron — the pit bull latched onto her neck and ripped out her jugular and esophagus  — her fiance launched The Breed is Not to Blame campaign!

rebecca hardy fiance, campaign to not blame the breed

“post-Nutter”

As expected, there are “post-Nutters,” as well pre-Nutters and Nutters. A post-Nutter, usually, has either been attacked by a once “loyal” pet pit bull, or has participated in attempting to stop a violent pit bull assault. Post-Nutters don’t always entirely leave Nutterdom — the ethereal kingdom in which pit bull owners (Nutters) live — after submitting to the truth about the breed: Pit bulls are dangerous and unpredictable. But others do walk away and are thus saved from this dangerous disillusionment.

I used to defend the breed, too, until my own personal experience. A “very sweet”, family dog (WITH VERY RESPONSIBLE OWNERS) SNAPPED at MY face and drew blood before I could turn away. I was in shock that this dog would do this! Of course, “this never happened before!” and the owners were mortified. I guess one just can’t understand the power of this breed until you witness it for yourself. They are dangerous and unpredicatable. I love dogs and gave pits the benefit of the doubt. But now I know that they don’t have to be chained up in a back yard or trained to fight in order to cause great harm. Trust me! – greenville greenie
As a FORMER Pit Bull owner I would have to say that I feel for you. You are definitely in denial. I have a VERY loving home and have several different breeds of dogs, including a couple that were strays. I had a very sweet pit bull that I got as a small puppy. She never even barked at anyone until one day, out of the blue, she attacked another one of our dogs.. It was almost impossible to get her off of the other dog. There was $1500 worth of damage done. I have never witnessed such a terrible event in my life. At that moment I knew that it was not her fault, but mine for owning such a violent animal. It was in her blood. I immedialy got rid of her, as I now feared for the safety of my children. The dog that she attacked was one that she played with daily … I think that you are very ignorant in your thinking when you say that Pits only attack when they come from trashy homes. Pits are a breed that are very unpredictable. They can turn on you when you least expect it. – Tonya213

“Nikko-Nutter”

A Nikko-Nutter, also spelled Niko-Nutter and Nico-Nutter, was created by the DogsBite.org community after the 2012 McKeesport fatal dog attack that crossed over into the Twilight Zone quickly after its occurrence. The term is not be confused with pre-Nutter or the all-encompassing Pit Nutter, as it does not involve pit bulls. A Nikko-Nutter is a person driven to adopt a dog that fatally attacks a human being, because “It’s not the dog’s fault.” A Nikko-Nutter, such as William Uhring, has no concern for any child or entity — in this case a school — living close to this dangerous animal.

“It’s not the dog’s fault,” Uhring said on Wednesday. “That dog was put in a very uncomfortable situation, and I didn’t want to see it victimized further.”
Alan Hernandez, who lives across the street from Uhring on Greensburg Pike, said he isn’t happy to hear that the husky involved in the fatal attack is living close by.
“I have a little boy, and now I’m going to have to make him come inside if that husky is outside,” Hernandez said. “This is shocking to me. I can’t believe someone adopted that dog. That dog should have been euthanized.”
Schools and several school bus stops are located on the street where Uhring lives. Alan Johnson, assistant superintendent of the Woodland Hills School District, said he plans to contact the district’s solicitor to explore legal options. – Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Image of fatally attacking husky dog in a homemade castNikko, spelled in a variety of ways, is a husky dog that had recently been rescued by a McKeesport family made up of a 26-year old father, 21-year old mother, a 2-day old infant and children ages 6 and 3. In the several weeks the family had the dog, it killed the family cat, broke its leg while trying to jump a fence and then killed the family’s newborn. At the time Nikko bit the infant on the head killing it, the dog was wearing a disturbing “homemade cast.” Also loose in the house along with Nikko was a family pit bull; two more pit bulls were locked in the home’s basement.

Upon seeing the images of the “homemade cast,” William Uhring decided to become a rescue angel (of the worst kind) and “save” Nikko from being euthanized. Uhring hunted down the newborn’s father and struck a deal with him to take over the ownership of Nikko. Uhring then forked over $650 in kennel and veterinary fees to the contracting animal control officer of McKeesport, Ken Ferree, who released Nikko to him even before the 10-day rabies quarantine was complete. Fortunately, Allegheny County officials stepped in and seized the animal and remanded it to quarantine.

A Nikko-Nutter is a reckless, self-aggrandizing, dangerous animal saving “nut,” who not only places the “faultless” dangerous animal on a pedestal — above and beyond the heights of residents, children and establishments in his neighborhood — but also plays a lion-tamer, god-like role. Like an imploding feeding frenzy, Nikko-Nutters are worshiped by others like them who always believe, “It’s not the dog’s fault,” after a fatal human attack and that the dog “deserves another chance.” Nikko-Nutters are a danger to communities, as well as to the animals they rescue.

“pre-Nutter”

A pre-Nutter is a person that is headed toward Nutterdom; the ethereal kingdom in which pit bull owners live — an altered, warped reality characterized by narcipitism. A pre-Nutter has advanced as far as researching the pit bull breed, but has not yet made the dive into ownership. DogsBite.org gets letters of gratitude from pre-Nutters who found the website and chose NOT to become a pit bull owner after reading parts of it. Pre-Nutters can be saved; once a Nutter, little hope remains.

I just could not reconcile what the advocates were saying with the facts. As I was researching the breed looking for the right formula to understand this issue I came across your web site. What an eye opener. I realized that what my intuition was telling me was right. There is something wrong with what these people are saying. – Letter of thanks

“Nuttercide”

“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.”

“Nutterdom”

Like pit nutter and nutter board, “Nutterdom” refers to pit bull owners and is a term derived from the DogsBite.org community. Nutterdom is capitalized because it refers to the ethereal kingdom in which pit bull owners live — an altered, warped reality characterized by narcipitism. Perhaps the most infamous pit bull owner, who lived in “sheer Nutterdom,” is Mark Parise who dyed his pit bull after it fatally attacked Robert Barbarita in 1987 in hopes of hiding the animal from authorities.
