How does pitbulls lock their jaws?

Any other animals that do the same? Can't find much info about it
>>
They don't. It's a myth. No dogs have special "locking jaws."

They're just breed for tenacity and to hold their bite.
>>

Correction. They were bred for their athletic abilties. That's why they use to be used during wars.

WHAT THE FUCK.
Fucking sub-human slavic pigs. They didn't even put it down, just let it starve to death in the cold. What the fuck is wrong with them?

You do realize it's just a .gif playing backwards?

they don't

They do it by attacking their owners, which can happen at any time, at any day, without warning or reason.
>>
>>2031981
they only earn the locking jaw after they've eaten their first human babby.
>>
>>2032131
Technically, it's when they eat the baby's soul, not the baby.
>>
>>2032079
yup. they were considered the all-American perfect dog until filthy nigger gangs in the northeast started using them as status symbols. that's where the negative public view of them started

Like this.

they don't.

>>2032059
also, that's played in reverse.
>>
>>2032085
Misanthropes grasp at any straw.
>>
>>2032085
that still means someone put it there, right.
>>
>>2032533
Maybe, maybe not. Depends where it was.
Wouldn't be the first time a dog got stuck in a stupid place.

While Pitbulls and other animals don't "lock jaws" there are a few other animals that will behave like some pitbulls and refuse to let go of a bite for nearly any reason. Badgers and Wolverines have been known to do this.

My grandfather's neighbor lost a horse to a badger because the horse basically stepped in the badger hole and the badger attacked. It savaged the horse's leg so bad it had to be put down, and they had to kill the badger to get it to let go of the horse's leg. Even with a horse jumping around trying to dislodge it and two humans trying to beat it off, it refused to let go until death.

>>2032539
either way, it means someone was retarded enough to let their dog walk around unsupervised near floes.

so we're back at what anon already said.
>>
>>2032544
It's Russia, so it's probably a feral dog who happened to stand on a larger chunk of ice as it broke loose.
>>
>>2032565
feral dogs survive in russia?

damn, theyre moresuccessful than politicians.
>>
>>2032567
look up the moscow strays
>>
>>2032567
Given that they can use public transport without fights breaking out they're actually better citizens than some people.
>>
>>2032121
Hmm 4 years and mine hasnt. Guess im very lucky.
>>
>>2031981
They don't lock their jaws, they just bite harder when they are in pain or startled as opposed to letting go.

It's like a guy with a really wild angry temper who will punch if you scare them instead of run away. They bred specific mental reactions into the breed.
>>
>>2032605
>They bred specific mental reactions into the breed.
if instinct could be changed that easily all animals would be extinct.
>>
>>2032616
Who said it was easy? Who said anything about breeding "instinct" into a dog? Did you even bother trying to discern what that poster wrote?
>>
Speaking of pittbulls, I am not an anti pitt fag I believe any dog can be good with training but seemly a decent enough pitt killed its owner in Ireland when the owner was having a epileptic fit?
What was that about?
>>
>>2032616

Yeah, a wolf that refuses to back down from a fight is a crap wolf that will likely die young due to infected wounds or an inability to hunt after injury. But a dog that refuses to back down from a fight can be considered a great dog that will be fed and nursed by its owner and then bred to a bitch to make more 'game' fighting dogs. Of course breeding can change how an animal reacts- a pitbull doesn't act like a wolf, a Ragdoll doesn't act like a wildcat, those Russian foxes have been bred for both increased tameness AND increased hostility/aggression in separate lineages. There are lots of domesticated animals that would quickly become extinct in the wild due to their physical phenotype or lacking the instincts and behaviors that promote their survival.
>>
>>2032653
All dogs have a drive to defend themselves.
Maybe the owner was beating on the dog with the seizure.
Maybe the dog was a rescue and was already trained to be aggressive towards humans.
Maybe what you heard were lies.
>>
The lock jaw is not a myth but more a state of mind a lot of dogs have even terriers lock jaw. Idiots who say they don't don't know that there has been reports of dogs that keep their grip even after death for awhile.
>>
You can activate it by playing with them its not necessarily a aggressive thing as much as a work out. You can use their lock for many jobs
>>
>>2032653
It could have been any number of things. People look possessed during a seizure, the dog could have been scared which could have escalated to biting the man because it's initial warnings didn't stop the weird human behavior, and then it could have escalated to a full on attack from there, and depending on how severe the attack, he could have bled out before becoming concious.

Or, maybe during the seizure the dog came to the man out of concern and could have been accidentally grabbed by the man. And as you know, your muscles clench very tight during a seizure and he could have been hurting the dog.

Either way, I doubt the dog just attacked for no reason at all. Undersocialized, fearful dogs will often react with anger or aggression when they get over excited.

A prime example of this is that gif where some kids pour ice water on a family member, and the dog bites and attacks the women's face. What no one noticed is that the dog was becoming excited and agitated very quickly, and had shown aggressive tendencies before.
>>
>>2032567
dogs don't need windmills and tulips to survive like you people. they just need food and water
>>
>>2032985
You have the gif or story?
>>
>>2033011
Unfortunately not, but someone else might post it if they have it.
