NFL Star's Dogs Kills Neighbor's Dog

7/9/2011 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Four dogs belonging to Arizona Cardinals linebacker Joey Porter reportedly killed a dog belonging to one of his neighbor's ... this according to a local report. 

The incident went down on July 2, says the Bakersfield Californian, and a local animal control spokesperson told the paper Porter was cited for not having the dogs on a leash.

The spokesperson said the dogs appeared to be half mastiff, half pit bull -- and that Porter appeared upset about what happened and apologized to the neighbor.

In 2006, Porter's dogs (though unclear if it's the same ones) reportedly got loose from his home in Pennsylvania and killed a miniature horse on a nearby farm.

You know why this happens a lot in football and basketball but not in Baseball? Think about it. The majority of baseball players are white.

Pitbull= Awesome family pet= unconditional love,licks and snuggles=Responsible owners create well mannered dogs= Owners who are probably more educated than you who have the ability to educate themselves as to why a dog becomes aggressive. Its the owner not the breed ******* and if you think only thugs with tattoos own these dogs then clearly you live under a rock. EDUCATE YOURSELF

@ The Neko Nation, I also hope you will educate yourself on a breed of dog that has been shamed by these thugs you speak of. Pitbulls are amazing loving animals. and just a FYI Iam a single white woman University educated with a solid career, I volunteer helping Pitbulls and trying to save them from thugs and ******** who train them to fight. I know more familys who own these dogs than punks and thugs. I also own one who has been raised with dogs kids and all kinds of people. Sadly people like you watch glorified news stories but never take the time to learn the true facts. Dont judge instead educate

GOD i'm so SICK of these THUG IDIOTS owning these moronically large, aggressive dogs and having no control over them. Owners that have dogs attack and kill should be JAILED. Especially when it's happened more than once!!!!

WOW.....I agree that people shouldnt have animals if they cant train and watch over them properly. However, some of these comments are very, very, very ignorant. Especially the ones about the breed of dog....Pitbulls are not bad animals, there are just dumb ass people giving them a bad name. I really think that some of the people leaving the racist, unorthodox comments should go back to school, learn to read, get a role model or something......plain idiotic! As for the story, never allow Porter to have animals and fine him heavily if he is caught with any....end of story!

I understand him having those dogs. They are the official dogs of ghetto dwellers.
