Thank You Comment :: Colleen Lynn

by colleen lynn.

I am a great admirer of Colleen Lynn, her intelligence, her integrity and her strength. I’m awed and deeply touched by the openness and poignancy with which Colleen dares describes what the attack did to her, including the secondary trauma. This is real courage … Colleen, you make this world a better place in so many ways … all of us are blessed that you exist and that we may know you. – Alexandra

Congratulations for taking an active part in informing the uninformed of both the dangers of these dogs and the profound effect on victims of attacks … Colleen Lynn you are doing a great job, as this is and will continue to be a growing concern. One look at the photos of victims, particularly children, should be enough to convince anyone. – Bruce D.

Thanks again for publishing this essay Colleen Lynn, and for shedding light on all victims of these attacks … I wanted to commend the people involved with your site for providing the public with undeniable evidence of the organizations and supposed “credible” sources who disguise themselves as canine behavioral experts in order to manipulate and distort facts designed to deceive the public, as well as to thank you for exploiting the overwhelming fallacies presented by pit bull advocacy groups. – Anonymous

Keep up the great work Colleen Lynn. As a scientist I’m constantly amazed by the wanton disregard for basic statistics that advocates of this breed buy into. Yes, statistics can be skewed if someone cared to one way or the other, but the numbers year-over-year of fatal dog attacks are undeniable. There is just no way to P-test your way out of that one. I’m also amazed at the utter sociopathic nature of pit advocacy as a whole, just such an appallingly self-centered attitude in their groupthink. Thank you for putting together such a large volume of statistical, cited, evidence. Your and Merritt’s research shines a light on the glaring lack of concern of the CDC as well as the medical profession in general. – Molly Thewad

Thanks again for publishing this essay, and for shedding light on all victims of these attacks … I wanted to commend the people involved with your site for providing the public with undeniable evidence of the organizations and supposed “credible” sources who disguise themselves as canine behavioral experts in order to manipulate and distort facts designed to deceive the public, as well as to thank you for exploiting the overwhelming fallacies presented by pit bull advocacy groups. I also enjoyed hearing about the politicians and animal rights activists who wish to eliminate the amount maulings and fatalities associated with the breed, as well as the shelters and rescues who are not seeking to promote higher adoption rates or misinformation about pit bulls, but are instead striving to reach the day when there are no more pit bulls around to enter their doors. – Anonymous

Pit bull advocacy fails to realize that the people who speak out for regulation of dangerous dogs, the people they characterize as “haters” are just ordinary folks who probably had no thoughts on pit bulls one way or another. Until, and this is the key point, they became victims of the violence. We pretty much all say the same thing after our attack “nobody should have to go through this, somebody should do something.” It comes to us that we are the “somebody” and we demand regulation. Ms. Biniaz is a high profile somebody, and she is courageous to use her status to focus attention on the maulings. Emma’s parents are somebody, the Soleskys are somebody. Every parent, and every pet or livestock owner who contacts legislators to demand action, they are somebody, every one of them. Colleen Lynn is a powerful somebody, she shines a light on the need to regulate a known danger. Thank you Colleen and thank you Miss Canada! – april 29

Colleen Lynn is a leader. Nobody wants to lead through an event like a mauling, but Colleen has stepped into a leadership role with great bravery in order to help others. She has provided education to the public, which has been desperately needed on this issue. I can say without question as the victim of a mauling by two pit bulls Colleen Lynn has done more good than she will ever know … Many thanks Colleen. – Watcher
