Those dogs are doing what they are supposed to do. Their owner should pick a more suitable breed for her strength level.

This is the correct answer.

Dogs chase and kill cats. It's what they do. If you can't have 100% control over your dog(s), you need to go smaller.

That being said, I would never own a blue. They're insane.

Blues make great catch dogs for wild boars that can easily weigh over 300 pounds. People should know that dogs enjoy doing what they are bred to do. Ie. if you have a lab, you better at least play fetch in the water.

My mastiff does not chase and kill cats.. ive let her walk up to them and they stand there ground and she freaka out. Pittbulls have a switch that most dogs raised around humans dont have. Ive witnessed it more then once living in san antonio we have a shit load of pitts. Pitts pitt fighting dogs bread to kill other dogs small animals what ever triggers them. I hate that term but from what i have seen it is some type of trigger and when it hits they dont stop.

Blues are indeed nuts, but I love em. I wouldn't want one either though.

I have a red nose with a sweet temperment. But he is cat aggressive. I walk him in rural or urban blight areas off leash and it took nearly 5 years to get enough verbal control to stop him from instigating a chase. If he was on the chase before I saw the cat [only happened a few times] there was no getting him back without grabbing him up.

Blue Nose pits always seem to me like they have more going on in their heads. Mine is pretty much just looking at what he is thinking about and has never surprised me with his behavior.

Yup, 100% the owner's fault. She was not able to maintain control of her dogs, largely because they are stronger than her. She also wasn't paying attention to her surroundings, and should not have given them so much leash. Those dogs were walking her.

It's objectively a dangerous breed. Owning one should be legal, but no different than owning a gun. The owner should be charged as if they had walked up and killed the cat.
