WASHINGTON -- A husband is mourning the loss of his beloved wife after
she was mauled to death by their pit bull Sunday evening inside their
D.C. row home.

Around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, police were dispatched to Rob Frazier and
Angela Smith's Southeast D.C. home located in the 1300 block of Dexter
Terrace for a report of a woman mauled by a dog. Police said the
animal is a pit bull. His name is Kaine.

When officers arrived to the scene, they found a woman suffering from
multiple trauma wounds to her body.

WUSA9 caught up with Frazier as he walked out of his gray, brick front
home with a red door. As he stood behind a metal fence, he told
reporters he exited the home for a short period of time and returned
to find his wife dead.

"I left out the house," Frazier paused as he gasped for air, held back
tears and started banging on a trash can. "I just left out the house.
It was 15 minutes and I came back," he paused and starting banging on
the trash can again and said, "She was dead."

He said he spent the last twenty years of his life with her. The
couple was on their second year of marriage.

"I got tired of her being a girlfriend or a friend. I wanted her to be
a lover, my permanent love," Frazier said as he fought back tears.

"A lot of people didn't know her heart," Frazier said.

Frazier said Smith and the pit bull were "buddies" and he isn't quite
sure why the dog attacked her.

"I'm thinking she might have taken some food or something like that
from him and he's real aggressive like that, right? Maybe, just maybe,
he reacted like that. That's what I'm hoping," said Frazier.

Through his own investigation, Frazier said some things are not adding
up, but that he'd rather not speak about alternative scenarios.

His mom was also in the house during the attack, but she said she was
sleeping and did not hear anything.

Frazier received the pit bull as a puppy from his nephew. He was 8
years old. Police removed the dog Sunday night after the attack and he
was later euthanized.

How many more people will pit bulls have to kill before the breed is banned?

I always wonder how many of these owners who have a loved one killed
by one of their pit bulls end up getting another pit bull eventually.
Most of the time, their remarks, as reported by the media, indicate
that they believe the killing was unforeseeable and, by extension,
unpreventable.

Nurture plays too big a role to justify banning breeds.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

Quite right...every time someone starts in about "pit bulls are
naturally vicious unlike other breeds", I have to wonder if they feel
the same way about certain breeds of human, and whether they have any
trouble getting the laundry to accept their pointed hoods with the
eyeholes....r

Bringing charges against animal owners when their pets kill would be a
good start.

I hate to think what the pit bulls might do if their bad owners were euthanized.
