‘Man-eating Hell-hounds!’: Don’t let the “Lock-Jaw” enter the UK!

Siberian Lock Jaw

One of the world's most dangerous breeds could be headed to UK shores

A dangerous new breed of dog is set to hit British shores this summer, and unlike 59 other countries, the UK government don’t seem interested in stopping it.

The Siberian “Lock-Jaw” was ranked number one in a recent list detailing the world’s most dangerous dogs.

Bred in Asia to hunt bears and mountain gorillas, the Lock-Jaw is a rare hybrid crossbreeding of the Rhodesian Ridgeback, the Himalayan Wolf, and the Griffin – a distant relative of the lion.

Distinguished by its protruding horn-like forehead ridges, and its unusually long canine teeth – which resemble fangs – the Lock-Jaw gained cult status among dog fighting enthusiasts in the US, who quickly sought to get hold of breeding pairs.

During the 2 weeks before they were banned outright, the less than 10 Lock-Jaws which had made it into the country had chalked up over 60 casualties and 30 fatalities, along with hundreds of dog maulings both inside and outside illegal dog fights.

The Lock-Jaw is named after its clamp-like jaws, which exert a bite-force of over 5000 lb per square inch – almost three times that of the Pitbull.

The bite is further reinforced by a locking joint, which prevents the jaw from opening. Even more terrifyingly, unless stopped, the Lock-Jaw usually eats its kills, and has been known to eat people in its native country.

It’s in fact the first dog breed to be banned outright from dog fighting, as, apart from safety issues, its status for technically being a dog is still up for debate.

The Lock-Jaw is already being touted as the number one status symbol among dangerous dog enthusiasts, and uptake in the UK is expected to be high, especially in lower income areas.

With a reputation for being fiercely loyal to their owners, hunting any animals (and possibly children) smaller than them, having turned on and killed owners in Asia even after multiple limbs have been hacked off, and often being sent into a frenzy from eye contact, many are asking why the UK government wouldn’t have been among the first to outlaw this lethal breed?

The Siberian Lock-Jaw is set to arrive on British soils in June.

    discusting animals – they should take all so-called “feral” dogs and throw them in the sea, then kill the person who threw them in the sea, then get the sea, put it in a bucket and drown it!
