Porsche Cartee - a 25 year old woman killed by a pitbull dog in South Carolina

Porsche Cartee, age 25, died at her home on August 22, 2015, in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. 

Porsche (Nicole)
She was known as Nicole to her family and friends. 

Around 6 p.m., Porsche, her sister and her mother were at home. There were also children in the house. 

Their elderly pitbull dog, named Spike, snapped and attacked Porsche's mother. Porsche tried to pull the dog off of her mom when the dog turned on her as well. Porsche suffered fatal wounds to her head and body. 

Porsche's sister managed to get the dog off of Porsche but the sister was also injured and may require surgery. 

Tragically, Porsche died at the scene of the attack. 

The dog was not neutered and weighed 85 pounds. 

The dog has been put to death.

The family had the dog since it was a puppy. No one has any idea as to why this dog turned against the women on the spur of the moment. However this dog had attacked the mother once before and she had been hospitalized at that time. 

The incident is under investigation by the local sheriff's office and Animal Control staff. 

Where are the authorities in South Carolina? Why do you allow Pit Bulls in your state? Wake up. 

Pit Bulls were bred over 200 years ago for bull baiting, bear baiting and dog fighting. They were never intended to be family pets. They should never be around infants or young children under any circumstances.

They have repeatedly proven that they can kill people, both young and old, including people passing by. They have killed grown women walking in the hallways of their apartment buildings; they have killed 40 year old men jogging by on a country road; they have killed toddlers playing on the floor.

You want a dog like
this in your home?
Many towns and cities, counties and states do not allow pit bulls and related breeds within their jurisdictions. Pitbulls are banned outright in many European countries, period.

Pit Bulls and all related dog breeds should be bred out of existence sooner rather than later.

Death by dog is not acceptable in a civilized country.

Please - no emails from readers stating that your pitbull is your best friend, saved your life and licks your baby's face. We've heard this bull-s**t before. 

Porsche's loved ones are devastated over her senseless and tragic death. She is described as a selfless woman who always looked out for her family. She was greatly loved. She will be forever mourned.

Porsche is survived by many loving friends and family members including her mother, her sister and her boyfriend, Patrick Powell.

Pray that Porsche is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
