BLACKBURN ENGLAND - 3 ITALIAN MASTIFFS AND A MASTIFF TERRIER CROSS ATTACKED A MAN WALKING IN WITTON PARK

A MAN was left with serious injuries after being savaged by four dogs in a Blackburn park.
The 44-year-old was bitten several times as he was attacked by THREE ITALIAN MASTIFFS AND ONE MASTIFF TERRIER CROSS while walking in Witton Park.
Police were called to the Preston Old Road park at around 12.50pm on Monday after receiving reports a man had been attacked and injured by dogs.  It is understood he was set to undergo an operation yesterday on his injuries after suffering a number of puncture wounds.
Police said the dogs were seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act and were detained while the investigation continues.
Officers said the owner was co-operating with their enquiries and no arrests had been made.
Cllr Damian Talbot, executive member for the leisure for Blackburn with Darwen Council, said: “This is a one off incident and it’s really unfortunate.
“I would just like to pass on my sympathy to him and his family as what has happened sounds very unpleasant.”
Cllr Michael Lee, who represents the area on the council, said he was shocked by the incident.
He said: “It’s a concern what would have happened if it was a child involved.”
Cllr Jim Smith said: “I’ve found that that park has lots of responsible dog owners. I’m shocked that this sort of thing could have happened.”
A police spokesman said: “The 44-year-old man suffered puncture wounds to his arms and legs and was treated at the scene by paramedics.
“Three dogs, all Italian Mastiffs, and one cross been seized.
“The owners of the dogs have been spoken to and our enquiries are ongoing.”
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We were called at 12.48pm to Witton Park after a man was bitten by a number of dogs.
“We took him to Royal Preston Hospital as he had puncture wounds to his arms.”



SAN MARCOS TX - A GERMAN SHEPHERD THAT WAS A FAMILY PET FOR 8 YEARS IS ALLEGEDLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAULING A 2-MONTH-OLD GIRL TO DEATH INSIDE A HOME

UPDATE WITH VIDEO

AN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — A 2-month-old baby girl is dead after San Marcos police say the family’s German Shepherd bit her numerous times.
San Marcos police and EMS were called to Sagewood Trail around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday for reports of an unresponsive child, identified as Skylar Dean Julius, with animal bites.

The baby’s father, who is in his 30s, told investigators he fell asleep while the child was napping in the same room in an infant bouncer. The baby’s mother was at work. When he woke up about 20 minutes later, he found the baby “unresponsive and cold to the touch.”

When he called 911, dispatchers coached the father how to perform CPR on the child. Police say the baby, who was found on the floor, had “numerous” bite marks, mainly on the abdomen. Julius was taken to Central Texas Medical Center where she was pronounced dead at 2:08 p.m.
Animal Control impounded the family’s GERMAN SHEPHERD, which had been the family’s pet for more than eight years. Animal Control says the dog was submissive when they approached it. The dog will be impounded for at least 10 days before authorities determine whether or not the dog will be euthanized.
“As you can imagine the family is very traumatized and upset, they’ve suffered two losses. First their infant daughter and also their family pet,” said Cmdr. Kelly Earnest with San Marcos police.
Cmdr. Earnest said she was not able to comment if any charges will be filed. Police say there was no evidence of drugs or alcohol used by the father.
San Marcos police have not been called to the house before and say there was only one child in the home. The father said the dog was always good with the child and had no history of being aggressive.
Child Protective Services is investigating.

MOUNT VERNON WA - A 7-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS SEVERELY MAULED BY HIS BABYSITTER'S 3 PIT BULLS



UPDATE....DOGS FOUND - http://q13fox.com/2017/01/18/three-pit-bull-terriers-attack-7-year-old-boy-in-sedro-wooley/

Mount Vernon police are trying to find three dogs who they say attacked a Sedo-Woolley first-grader, who has been hospitalized since the attack.

“It was just really shocking,” said Carlos Chavez who is the boy’s father. “You hear about these things, but actually being part of it is another thing.”
Chavez is grateful for the miracle that he believes saved his son’s life. On Thursday seven-year-old Reilly Gerber was attacked by THREE PIT BULLS  inside his babysitter’s Mount Vernon home.
Instead of actually receiving prayers and thoughts and knowing my son is healthy I could be planning a funeral,” said Chavez. “It was three against one. And he’s only 7 years old. The dogs were about an inch away from taking his life.”
Reilly has more than 70 stitches on his face, staples in his head and wounds on his body. He is receiving care at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
“It’s kind of shocking the main gashes were so close to severing an artery or worse,” said Chavez.
Mount Vernon police say they are investigating – but so far have been unable to find the three dogs.
Chavez says his family is fond of pit bulls – but he wants to make the dogs don’t hurt any other innocent people.
“My main concern is I’m just going to push forward to get these dogs off the street,” said Chavez.

INDIAN HEAD, CHARLES COUNTY MD - A PIT BULL MAULED A MAN WHO HAD COME TO A JUNK YARD TO PICK UP A VEHICLE


An unidentified male was attacked by a  
PIT BULL  Monday afternoon, Jan. 16 at a Charles County junkyard, police reported. According to Charles County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Diane Richardson, the incident occurred on Raymond Avenue in Indian Head. Police responded to the area after being notified of an attack in progress.
“The dog was fully engaged in biting the man when officers arrived,” Richardson told The BayNet.com. The animal had the man’s leg and police and bystanders attempted to get the dog to let go. After using a pole with no success, an officer tasered the animal however, “it was still very aggressive,” said Richardson. “One of the officers had to discharge his weapon. It was a very dangerous situation.”
The shot killed the dog. Investigators indicated the dog's bite was so severe it penetrated the man's leg-bone. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where his condition is unknown.
Richardson reported the attack occurred after the dog was let out of its confinement area to get water. The unsuspecting victim was at the yard to pick up a vehicle.

Officials were called to the 1200 block of Gideons Drive in SW Atlanta around 7:20 a.m.  Tuesday. SkyTracker 11 flew over the scene where belongings were seen scattered over the road.
Shamonte Clayton lives in the neighborhood and said he was awoken to the sound of screams. "I knew it had to be something serious because this is the time the kids go to school," he said.
Clayton said he ran outside and saw one dog standing over a little girl who was hurt. "She had been mauled and bitten up really badly," he said.

After that, he said he ran off a dog standing near the little boy's "life-less body."
"The mother was standing there screaming. She couldn't pick the child up, so I picked his body up and carried him to the ambulance," he said.
Clayton said he's seen the dogs before. "They frequent the neighborhood a lot...they haven't been aggressive in the past," he said.
"Why are you letting two full grown pit bulls roam this neighborhood  freely when the neighborhood is full of elementary school aged kids," Clayton asked of the owner.

Investigators identified Cameron Tucker as the owner of the dogs. One dog was shot and another was taken into custody.  Tucker was also arrested. He was charged with two counts of reckless conduct. Those are misdemeanor charges. The Fulton County District Attorney’ Office could add additional charges.
Pickard said a group of elementary-aged kids were walking to school when the attack happened. "We had some brave kids, some kids ran back to the scene to pull the dogs off the children that were injured," he said.
