Fake-News — ‘Bulldog Bites Pedophile’s Penis Off’

by Brett M. Christensen

According to a post that has been traversing the interwebs since late 2017,  a bulldog has inflicted life-altering injuries on a pedophile who was climbing through the window of a room in which two young children were sleeping. 

Supposedly, the family’s pet bulldog intercepted the predator and “severed the rapist’s genitals clean off and swallowed his penis and testicles”.

The post features an image that shows the man apparently grimacing in pain while laying in a hospital bed. The image also includes a shot of the dog that supposedly did the damage.

An example of the fake-news post:

Bulldog Bites Pedophile’s Penis Off as He Tried to Rape Sleeping Children

 

A pedophile has been left with “life-altering” injuries after climbing through the bedroom window of two young children, only to be greeted by their pet bulldog who bit his penis off.

52-year-old Randle James of Saline County, Arkansas, climbed into the 1st-floor window of the small family home into the room where the two young sisters were sleeping after passing by and seeing the open window.

But, the story is just a work of fiction. The incident described never happened.  The story began circulating in November 2017 after it was posted on the Neon Nettle website. Since then, it has been republished on dozens of other clickbait fake-news websites.
There are no credible news or police reports that support the claims in the story. There is no evidence that backs the claim that a “Randle James of Saline County, Arkansas” was injured in the way described.

Moreover, the image does not depict an injured pedophile in a hospital bed. Instead, it shows the reaction of a patient who has been given the painkiller Ketamine. The image is a screenshot from a video of the man’s reaction that was included in a May 2017 Mirror Article.  The man was being treated for a broken ankle, not a dog attack.

And, the image of the dog used in the fake article was also stolen from another source.  The image was featured on the Hungarian language blog “Velvet” in March 2016. The image’s caption identifies the dog as a Husky-Pitbull mix.



Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!

Brett Christensen,
