Maybe the dog didn't kill the rabbit and just found it.
True, and most reasonable people would understand that, but OP's follow up supports my thought. I'm sure if OP had a Yorkshire terrier, her neighbors wouldn't have freaked out. Unfortunately, pit bulls have a bad rap and it looks like the neighbor was looking for a reason to go after the dog. What really sucks is pit bulls are usually sweet and gentle (depending on their training) and there's no proof the dog killed the rabbit. Even if it did, that's what dogs do-- protect their home. I hope everything works out for OP.
Anytime one person's pet kills another person's, the owner of the dead pet can take it to court. If the pet attacks a human it could very well be put down. If it kills a pet, it's really up to state law and the court's decision. As long as op had a fenced in yard the dog would be fine. If not, the dog could be out down.
Not true, that really depends on the dog. One of our dogs liked to roll around in all sorts of nasty things, including smelly dead animals. Our Lab likes to prod small live animals with his nose and has on a couple occasions dropped baby rabbits into our hands. We put them back and put up a little trellis fence around their nest, so Mom could get in but the dog couldn't. I don't doubt the Lab would eat a dead animal if he came across it though, since he'll try to eat anything if he can get away with it, but I don't think he'd bother bringing any part of it to us. Our GSD is disinterested in small animals, alive or dead, but he is the odd one out.
I love my phone any who they came out and said she'll have to pass a test or she'll have to go on a dangerous dog list. I personally will know she'll pass but it's not like I trained her to kill there rabbit it was animal instant. It happened in my yard while she was on a tie out. so it's there fault for not being responsible with there rabbit.
