Analysis:

The disturbing story shared widely online via Facebook and other social networking sites claims to show graphic pictures of a beheaded man who was supposedly killed brutally by his own Pit bull Dog he purchased for 9 lakhs rupees. The story was even mentioned in certain local, regional websites in India like netibharatam.com and bezawadatoday.com. The ‘horrific’ incident is said to have taken place in Chikmagalur town in Karnataka state of India, when the man left out to play Tennis. The story comes with a picture showing a lady relative of the man weeping around his beheaded dead body, and another one shows the man’s detached head lying away from the body in blood stains. There’s also a picture of a bloodied Pit Bull dog that seems to be the killer! The story is a hoax, with some valid information that one similar incident happened elsewhere.

About the Pit Bull Dog

On 22 April 2015, a man in Lauro de Freitas, metropolitan region of Salvador, was attacked by his own pet Pit bull Dog that bit him in various parts of the body inside his home. The man succumbed to the injuries and died at the spot. Independent Company of the Military Police (CIPM) captured the dog and investigated the case, however, no information about what motivated the dog to attack its owner is mentioned. As shown in the picture below, clearly, it was a different man mentioned in the story in question.

About the Man Beheaded

On 21 April 2015 Patharselvam (35), a notorious history sheeter of Virattikuppam in Villupuram of Tamil Nadu, India, was beheaded by a rival gang at the Municipality Park where he was playing badminton with his friends. The gang was led by Arivu alias Arivalagan of Kizhperumbakkam. One of the gang members carried the severed head of Patharselvam and surrendered before the Villupuram town police. Patharselvam had at least 10 cases that included charges of murder and attempt to murder; he was the main accused in the murder of Arivalagan’s elder brother Siva in the year 2004.

So it looks like someone mixed up these two different incidents, or fabricated a story for the sake of attention/marketing. The story in question is therefore a hoax, the Pit bull dog shown in the picture did not kill any Indian owner who purchased it for 9 lakhs. The dog killing its owner is a completely different incident that happened in Salvador.

Pit bull Dog Breed Dangerous?

The stories also sent out a warning that Pit bull breed dogs are dangerous to own, which has been a common belief, perhaps because of the dog’s look and the history of its breed. Today’s pit bull is a descendant of the original English bull-baiting dog that was bred to bite and hold bulls, bears and other large animals around the face and head. However, after the baiting of large animals was outlawed in the 1800s, the pit bull dogs were crossbred to make them less aggressive. While still some pit bulls are selected and bred for their fighting ability with other dogs, it does not mean they cannot be around other dogs or that they are unpredictably aggressive. These pit bull dogs have been popular family pets for long time, and are gentle, affectionate and loyal to their owners. Nonetheless, like all other dogs, pit bulls also require care, training and supervision. Moreover, animal behavior specialists suggest that young children should always be supervised around pets. You can read more about all that on the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals website aspca.org.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax with some valid information.
