ASHLAND OH - TWO LARGE MALE AMERICAN BULLDOG/BOXER MIXES "SOMEHOW GOT OUT" AND ATTACKED 4 ADULTS... NUTTER COULD FACE JAIL TIME AND HEFTY FINES IF CONVICTED

Sharon Etzwiler
An Ashland woman could face up to nearly a year in jail after the city law director's office alleged her two vicious dogs attacked four people, sending all four to the hospital. 
Sharon Etzwiler was arraigned in Ashland Municipal Court Friday, pleading guilty to two counts of failure to register a dog and not guilty to two counts of failure to confine a vicious dog.
The charges stem from an Aug. 2 incident in which Etzwiler's two dogs -- both large, male AMERICAN BULLDOG-BOXER MIXES -- reportedly attacked two women and two men on Foxmoor Lane in Ashland. One of the victims was hospitalized for several days due to the severity of her injuries. The other three victims were also taken to the hospital for dog bite injuries, according to an Ashland Police report. 
Judge John Good ordered Etzwiler to pay fines of $50 plus court costs for each minor misdemeanor failure to register charge. 
Good also set a pretrial date of Sept. 7 for the two remaining charges, which are more serious. Each first-degree misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, if the defendant is convicted. 
Etzwiler questioned how she could have failed to confine vicious dogs when the dogs were not ruled as vicious by the dog warden until after the incident.
"The allegation is that they were vicious dogs when you failed to confine them," Good said in response. "I understand that they were not declared vicious dogs until a week after they were failed to be confine, and that may or may not be a defense in this case. That is an issue here."
The dogs are being held in the custody of Ashland County Dog Warden Tom Kosht. 
If Etzwiler is found guilty of one or both counts of failure to confine a vicious dog, the court could order certain conditions of confinement for the dogs or it could order the dogs be put down. 
"Obviously, this is a serious situation for you and the other people involved," Good told Etzwiler. "People were hurt here, and the court understands that." 
Good agreed to give Etzwiler a few weeks to hire an attorney to represent her in the case.

COLUMBUS GA - DUDLEY WILLIS WAS WALKING HOME FROM THE STORE WHEN A NEIGHBOR'S 3 PIT BULLS MAULED HIM - BOTH ARMS AMPUTATED !!!

WTVM.com-Columbus, GA News Weather & Sports
A Columbus man has to have his arms amputated after being attacked by THREE PIT BULLS.
Forty-two-year-old Dudley Willis says he was walking home from the store last week when he was mauled by three pit bulls belonging to one the neighbors on the corner of 38th Street and Earline Avenue.
“He was left laying here in this area, just left laying out here. Nobody called for help or nothing. He was just left laying out here,” says his sister Alycia Willis.
Alycia Willis says he was left there for an hour and twenty-five minutes before being taken to Piedmont Columbus Regional Hospital.
“The hospital called us after he had a seven-hour surgery. He has been through six surgeries since Sunday,” says Alycia Willis.
She received another one of those phone calls during the interview with News Leader 9. The doctors told her that both of her brother’s arms will have to be amputated.
“It kind of scares me,” says neighbor Carson Layfield.  
Neighbors say the dogs have been a common problem for close to a year now. Some of the kids in the neighborhood say they can’t even walk to their bus stop without fear.
“The dogs chased them up the street and they’re only 10 and 8 years old. They’re scared to death,” says area resident Josh Drysdale.
The family says animal control has taken the dogs and the owner has been arrested. Neighbors say there are other dogs belonging to that same owner that they say are just as dangerous.
“It’s been an ongoing situation. They chased my daughter. She is six years old. If that would have been her, if that would’ve been a child that’s going through what my brother is going through, they would not have survived,” says Alycia Willis.
The family of the victim says they will be taking legal action against the owner of the dogs. They say for now they’re just wishing their loved one a speedy recovery.

BALTIMORE MD - YOUR CAN'T KEEP A GOOD PIT IN !!! A NEIGHBOR'S MANY MEAT GRINDERS MAULED A WOMAN AND HER DOG AS THEY TOOK A WALK



(WJZ) — A woman has been taken to the hospital with dog bites Wednesday afternoon.  Baltimore Police Department received a call at 3:54 p.m., and requested that animal control respond to the scene. The owner of the dogs remained at the scene as well.

One by one, four dogs Baltimore fire officials have identified as pit bulls were caught and loaded up by animal control. Authorities said FOUR OF THE FIVE PIT BULLS  were responsible for attacking the woman in the neighborhood Wednesday.


“It was pretty violent,” said one witness who did not want to be identified.
The witness said the unidentified woman was walking her dog before the pit bulls lunged after them both.
“Both of her arms were bit. The dog was still being attacked by two other dogs,” She said.
Witnesses said despite the fence around the home, the dogs have been known in the past to find a way out. 
One witness who wished to stay unidentified said she saw people driving by stopping to get out of their cars to help the woman and the dog fight off the attack, using things including baseball bats and even a vacuum cleaner to help.
Baltimore police said the woman was taken to a hospital and the owner stayed on the scene.
WJZ reached out for a comment, but there was no answer at the door. The woman’s dog was reportedly rushed to a vet’s office.
Her condition is currently unknown.

TRINITY, RANDOLPH COUNTY NC - TWO DOGS , A PIT BULL AND AN IRISH WOLFHOUND, "SOMEHOW GOT OUT"- A NEIGHBOR'S BELOVED DOG AND CAT WERE FATALLY MAULED AND THE PIT WAS FOUND HANGING ON AND EATING THE BELLY OF A DONKEY!



A family is demanding action after they say their neighbor’s dog came into their yard and attacked and killed two of their pets.
Lisa Myers says when her family came home Sunday night they found their 15-year-old dog, Coco, near death on the front porch.
“The first thing we saw was just skin hanging under her neck and there was nothing but raw meat showing,” Myers said.
Myers raced to the backyard to check on their other animals and spotted a white pit bull in the fenced in area with the donkeys and goats.
“When I looked out one of the donkeys was standing there and a  WHITE PIT BULL  had its hind legs on the ground and it’s front paws were on the donkey’s side and it was just chewing at the donkey,” Myers said.
She started screaming, trying to get the pit bull to let go before noticing the dog had company.
“I looked to the right and there was another large dog in the fence with the pit bull and it was an  IRISH WOLFHOUND  and it jumped the fence and went through the woods, but I never saw the Irish Wolfhound engage with the donkeys, just the pit bull,” said Myers.
Unfortunately, that night they had to put Coco down.
The next morning they realized their 10-year-old cat was missing.
Myers found tufts of fur matted on the back deck and when she looked further she spotted the cat lifeless in the yard.
“It’s just lots and lots of tears and then it’s just sort of processed to an anger point that our dog and cat had to die in such a cruel way,” Myers said.
Randolph County Animal Control determined both dogs are dangerous and fined the owner.
Michael Robertson says he is sorry for what happened.
He’s never witnessed any aggression from his dogs and is unsure why they attacked the neighbor’s animals.
Robertson says he will surrender both dogs to animal control Wednesday morning.
“It really sucks. I know my kids will be heartbroken, but I feel like it’s the right thing to do because I don’t want it to happen to their animals again or somebody else around here,” Robertson said.
