It was way back as a pastime dog breeder in Osogbo, Osun State, I discovered the pit bull is the ultimate killer dog. Strong, stumpy, fearless and conscienceless, I once witnessed my pit bull, Fletcher, bring down a goat four times its size, lion-like, burying its fangs into the jugular of the luckless creature, thereby blocking off air into its larynx, stoutly pinning it down, inviting certain death. How the brindle dog, which was a little over one-year-old, and who had never been in the wild, knew this method of pitiless killing, was shocking to me. Death was definite for the poor goat as it lay helpless and motionless in the jaws of the unblinking canine bestriding it. But my wife, at great personal risk, saved the goat by grabbing a plank and threatening Fletcher who wildly refused to let go of its prey. She performed her life-saving miracle from a respectable distance, though.
