Puppies Are Dangerous? Houston Texans Receiver/Kick Returner Jerome Mathis Cited For Dogs Running Loose
Grrrr. I’m a bite yo ass. Ya better run!
Just sent this story from good friend Delinda Lombardo. I wasn’t going to post anything to give TBR’s Larry Holmes piece its proper reverence (please continue the insightful conversation on Holmes), but damn this is getting ridiculous. As Delinda pointed out, puppies are dangerous?
The pussification of America continues…..
Houston Texans wide receiver/kick returner Jerome Mathis was cited after four dangerous pit bulls escaped from his home near Manvel on Saturday, police reported.
Authorities said Mathis allowed the dogs to remain at large and harbored unvaccinated animals.
Residents of the Cobblestone Park apartments, in the 3800 block of County Road 94, reported that the dogs were behaving in an aggressive manner, the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department said.
One woman said she was chased into her apartment by the dogs and a couple said they jumped onto a parked car to escape.
An officer saw one dog approach a woman and shot pepper spray at the animal, the report said. When the spray seemed to take no effect, the officer fired his gun without hitting the dog. The dog ran away.
Officers later captured one adult dog and three puppies, the report said.
Mathis, 24, said the dogs were his and was issued citations.
No injuries were reported.
“We are aware of the situation, and we’re going to try to help Jerome resolve it,” Texans spokesman Tony Wyllie said.
Mathis, a standout receiver/kick returner at Hampton University in Virginia, was the Texans’ fourth-round selection in the 2005 draft.
He was recognized as one of the top kick returners in the NFL and was rewarded with a trip to the Pro Bowl after his rookie season.
I think people killing lions, tigers and bears are way more dangerous. Crazy world we live in.
