FORT SILL OK - A PIT BULL JUMPED ITS FENCE AND ATTACKED AN 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL THAT WAS WAITING OUTSIDE HER FRIEND'S DOOR



https://www.gofundme.com/ut8h5-justice-for-lexi


My daughter Alexis (Lexi) Recio is an 8 yr old vibrant, bubbly and beautiful little girl. Unfortunately on March 6th a little after 5pm her whole outlook on life changed. She was brutally attacked by a  PIT BULL  on Fort Sill while waiting for her friend outside of her house.

The pitbull jumped the fence and knocked over my daughter. It then proceeded to drag her by her hair around the yard causing her to have grass and concrete burns on her back and shoulder. Lexi tried to kick the dog away but it only aggravated it more. The dog started to bite her on her right buttocks and her inner thigh area.

The dog scratched up her neck and tore into her skin. She is lucky that her friend came out and went to look for help. A very kind man saved her life and we are forever grateful to him.

She suffered severe wounds. She was taken to Comanche county memorial hospital then transferred to OKC children’s hospital because of the severity of the wounds. She is petrified of dogs now and when she was interviewed by the military police she said she was afraid she was going to die during the attack. 

To hear your child say this is heart breaking. Our baby has suffered so much with night terrors and anxiety plus the pain of having to have her wounds repacked 2 times a week. Lexi is a strong girl but has suffered. We want justice for Lexi because no child should ever have to fear being attacked while playing in the yard. 

please help us get a lawyer to bring justice against the owner of the dog and the housing company for not making sure that residents are following the rules. Any help would be greatly appreciated.




*update*
Thank you all for your generous donations. We have spoken to a lawyer and we are in the process of getting things rolling. Without the help of each and everyone of you we would not have been able to get where we are. Please continue to pray for Lexi and share this post so that we can raise the rest of the money to help with the lawyer payments. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts❤️

SAN FRANCISCO CA - A MEAT GRINDER ATTACKED A 15-YEAR-OLD BOY WALKING WITH FRIENDS AND ALMOST BIT HIS FINGER OFF AND BIT ONE OF HIS FRIENDS .. NOW, TO FIND THE MONSTER THEY THINK IS NAMED "CHOP" TO SEE IF IT HAS HAD ITS RABIES SHOT?


A dog attacked two teenage boys Saturday night in San Francisco landing both of them in the hospital. Police are looking for the dog, while one boy remains in the hospital.

"He almost took my pinky off my hand and then he wouldn't let go of me," said Luis Cisneros. The 15-year-old was hooked up to an IV and morphine at San Francisco General Hospital Sunday night after getting attacked by a dog. Cisneros says he was walking near Oakdale Avenue and Griffith Street in Bayview around 7 p.m. Saturday, when he saw the dog about twenty feet away, "it just came rushing at me and it bit me."

Cisneros says he was with a group, walking to a friend's house when he was attacked. One of his friends who tried to help fend off the dog was also bit and treated in the SF General's emergency room.

The dog bit Cisneros multiple times on his hands, arms and legs. "It was the worst pain I ever had," he said. Cisneros says he eventually escaped from the dog and made it inside his friend's house after which he was rushed to the hospital. He says the dog did not have a leash, collar or an owner in sight. He's never seen the dog before but says his friends have. "People call it Chop. People say that it's a person's dog up the street." He says the dog was light tan or grey in color, "like the big face, you could tell it was a big pit bull."

Cisneros' family was by his side in the hospital Sunday night, including his mother, Magali Garcia. "Someone could come forward and let us know where can we find the dog," she said. Like any Mother, she doesn't want to see her child in pain. Luis had surgery Sunday to clean the puncture wounds and will have to go through a series of painful injections near his injuries, if police or animal control don't find the dog who bit him quickly. "We just want to observe the dog for 10 days, they want to make sure the dog doesn't have any rabies. My son has to go through pain again if we don't know if the dog has rabies or not."

"Clinical rabies is actually almost always fatal," explains Dr Eric Wohlford, who is one of the doctors treating Luis in the pediatric unit. If police or animal control don't find the dog that attacked Cisneros, then they will have to treat him for rabies to ensure he doesn't contract the virus. "The important thing about rabies is actually treating patients before they have any kind of symptoms."

San Francisco police are investigating the dog attack.

POCATELLO ID - 2 MONSTER LOOKING MEAT GRINDERS PLAYED TUG-OF-WAR WITH A BELOVED FAMILY PET ...ANIMAL UNCONTROL SAYS THEY CAN'T TELL EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OF DOG THEY ARE ...BUT THEY ARE OF THE "BULLY BREED"...SAY WHAT???




Early this morning at 2 am, Candida Morris let her dog, Lulu, a husky and German Shepherd mix, out to go to the bathroom. This was a common occurrence, as they are woken up by the Morris' newest child that is a couple months old. 
Only a few minutes later, Morris says she heard yelping, but it was coming from her driveway.
"From my bedroom window I could see two huge dogs on top of my dog," said Morris.
Morris says she then ran downstairs and started yelling at the attacking dogs, and one aggressively turned her way and she went back inside to call the police.
At that point her neighbor was outside yelling at the dogs, but they had dragged Lulu into the middle of the street.
"They looked like they were playing tug of war with her," said Morris. 
ANIMAL SERVICES DIRECTOR DANIELLE GARCIA SAYS THEY CANNOT TELL EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OF DOG THESE TWO ARE, BUT THEY ARE OF THE BULLY BREED. 
She recognized people will point fingers at the type of breed, but says that they should focus more on how they are treated at home.
"Dogs running at large, unfortunately yes that is a major problem. And mostly it's because people don't have their animals fixed, people don't have them secured in a yard, or people don't keep them active enough that they're not bored," said Garcia. 
The incident is still being investigated so for now the dogs will remain at the animal shelter, but Morris and Garcia both made one thing very clear.
"Don't hate the breed. Don't judge a breed. Because that really doesn't have much to do with it," said Garcia. 
"Domesticated animals are still animals. And they need to be trained and treated properly," said Morris. 
She says when police arrived, the dogs had fled. Morris says two officers went looking for the dogs, and one officer went with her and Lulu to the animal hospital.
The dogs were eventually found, but Lulu had lost too much blood and passed away.
"She was the sweetest dog in the world," said Morris. 
Pocatello Animal Services now have custody of the two dogs and their owners have been notified of the situation.

ENOS, MARSHALL COUNTY OK - A GROUP OF DOGS SAID TO BE A BELGIAN MILINOIS AND 4 GERMAN SHEPHERDS MAULED A WOMAN WHO WAS WALKING DOWN A ROAD HOME AFTER VISITING RELATIVES



A woman was hospitalized Thursday evening after being attacked by dogs.
"We just seen her five minutes before that, and golly man, all that stuff happened." The victim's brother-in-law, Carl Moss, said."
Michelle Slaughter had just left from visiting with her sister and brother-in-law around 4 p.m Thursday, when she was attacked by a group of dogs on her way home.
"Its heartbreaking emotions," Moss said. "I mean, I can't believe it happened to her."
Otis Arnold was on his way home from work, and stopped to help right after one of the dogs, A BELGIAN MILINOIS, was shot and killed by a neighbor who had stepped in.
"She was screaming that she thought the dogs were trying to tear her arm off," Arnold said.
It was only after the gunshot that the other four dogs, all GERMAN SHEPHERDS, ran off.
"One of them had a 4x4, and they were trying to fight the dogs, and it still wasn't keeping them off." Arnold said.
Slaughter sustained serious injuries to the stomach and arms and was taken to a Durant hospital. She's expected to be okay.
"No one would've thought it wasn't safe to just walk down the road, that dogs would attack you," Arnold said. "Nobody deserves to be attacked by dogs."
Marshall County undersheriff Ed Kent says the dogs had gotten out while their owner, a local firefighter, was away helping fight the large wildfire to the north. He says the dogs were being trained to be search and rescue dogs, but he doesn't know if the training is certified.
The owner of the dogs says most of those dogs hadn't begun training yet, which range from security, to search and rescue, to narcotics and arson detection.
"Just hope she's going to be okay, and we're asking for prayers from everyone," Moss said. "We'd appreciate all the prayers."
Kent says the man who shot the dog will not be facing charges. The dogs' owner could be facing civil charges, however.



FAIRBANKS AK - VERN WOODS, 80, IS A HERO ...HE SAW A NEIGHBORHOOD PIT BULL ATTACK A SMALL DOG BEING WALKED BY 2 TEEN GIRLS ...HE HAD A GUN AND HE SHOT THE LAND SHARK!!!



A Fairbanks man shot a pit bull to stop an attack on a small dog being walked by two girls outside his home, police said.  Vern Woods fired two shots into the larger dog, which later was euthanized.

Woods, 80, will not face charges, Fairbanks police officer Doug Welborn told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. The pit bull’s owner was bitten trying to stop the attack, Welborn said.

Woods was watching television Wednesday when he looked outside and saw his 12- and 16-year-old neighbors step out of their suburban home with their rat terrier on a leash.  They crossed to Woods’ side of the street. As they took pictures, Woods said, the PIT BULL “came out of nowhere at a dead run.” The small dog tried to escape and its leash wrapped around the girls’ legs.

“The pit bull hit that little dog and pinned him to the ground. The girls naturally tried to jump back, but they hit that leash and they fell,” Woods said. “They were trying to kick at the dog and yelling at it but it wouldn’t let go. I’ve never seen anything so ferocious in my life.”

THE PIT BULL'S OWNER APPEARED AND TRIED TO PULL HIS DOG AWAY BUT WAS KNOCKED DOWN. 

“Now there’s three of them lying on the ground,” Woods said. “I ran out my back porch to my car and I grabbed my pistol and ran out my garage. The girls’ father is there by now and he’s beating on the dog’s head when he could, but this dog was so fast. I started shouting, ‘Let him go, get away from him. Back up, I’m going to kill him.'”  The larger dog shook the rat terrier “like a limp rag,” Woods said.

With the people out of the way, Woods shot the pit bull in the head. The bigger dog dropped the rat terrier but remained standing. Woods fired again.“I turned around and looked at the little girls. They’re panicking and crying, their dog is all chewed up and their dad ran them back into the house,” Woods said.“This went on for about two or three minutes, and I didn’t go downstairs until it intensified so bad it scared me,” 

Woods said of the attack,  "I ALWAYS THOUGHT PIT BULLS GOT A BAD RAP, BUT AFTER SEEING HOW FEROCIOUS THEY CAN BE.  I'VE BEEN HERE 47 YEARS, AND I'M A HUNTER, AND I'LL TELL YOU, I'D RATHER HAVE A BEAR ATTACK ME THAN A PIT BULL."

OVERLAND PARK, JOHNSON COUNTY KS - ANIMAL UNCONTROL: A PIT BULL FROM OLATHE ATTACKS IN OVERLAND PARK BUT NOTHING CAN BE DONE EVEN THOUGH ITS THE SAME COUNTY! NEXT TIME THE WALKING TIME BOMB ATTACKS A LITTLE GIRL AND KILLED HER POMERANIAN... NOW WHAT?



An Overland Park family faces a dilemma after a dog they thought was friendly attacked their daughter and killed their Pomeranian.
The incident happened outside a home on West 153rd Street, but the dog and its owner live in Olathe. That's complicating things.
"We just assumed if you're in Johnson County, everything in Johnson County the rules apply, and that's not actually the case," Kristene Canady said.
Canady and her husband Sean were sitting outside of their Overland Park home when a familiar face walked by with his 3-year-old PIT BULL MIX. 
"What was most surprising is the dog was so docile and friendly at the beginning," Sean Canady said. "We've had several encounters with him, and I didn't expect that out of this particular dog."
He said it's like a light switch went off in the dog.
"I heard this blood-curdling scream. Like as a mom you just never get that out of your head," Kristene Canady said.
Kristene said the pit bull mix pounced onto their 6-year-old daughter and then attacked the family's 5-pound Pomeranian, Niko.
"As soon as he knocked her to the ground and Niko got loose, he latched onto Niko and just started doing the mauling shake," she said. "I mean Niko couldn't even yelp. It happened so fast."
Niko died a short time later. Their daughter suffered scratches and bruises to her neck and chest.
The Overland Park mom said it wasn't until after the attack they learned the dog had a history of violence.
"This dog living in Olathe but attacking in Overland Park tied the hands of animal control for Overland Park," she said. "Even though they work synonymously and have a great relationship, from what we understand, both police departments and animal control, the jurisdiction for the judge that would be hearing our case in Overland Park is limited of what he can require from the dog living in Olathe."
The pit bull was taken away and is in quarantine in Olathe. The dog's owner was cited for failure to confine, but the family hopes jurisdictional changes can be made so different cities can work more fluently when prosecuting a case such as this.
"If anything good comes from this awful situation is that could change to where it doesn't matter if you live across the street and you happen to be in Olathe or something happens conversely," she said. "Somehow that loophole needs to be fixed so that this other family doesn't end up in the same quandary."
In May, the pit bull will be in a dangerous/vicious dog hearing to determine its future.
