SHARPS, BREVARD COUNTY FL - 2 DOGS KNOWN TO THE FAMILY ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL LEAVING HER IN CRITICAL CONDITION

VIDEO

A 5-year-old girl has been mauled by dogs at her home in a small Brevard community of Sharps.  The girl was rushed to Arnold Palmer Hospital after she was found bleeding in the yard.  No one saw the attack. The dogs have been taken to Titusville Animal Shelter and they were stained with blood when they were impounded.The victim is in critical but stable condition.  At least one of the two dogs is a  PIT BULL  and they were stained with blood when they were impounded.

 Her father says he ran out and picked her up after she was found unresponsive on the ground and carried her into the house and tried to wash away the blood to see where she was hurt, but it was just too much blood.  The father says that the dog that led the attack had been abandoned on his property by a friend.  The sheriff's office is investigating but since it was family dogs and there were no witnesses, it's unlikely that there will be any charges brought.  However, the Department of Children's and Families is in on this also just to see if there was any neglect due to her being in close proximity to those dogs.

WESTMORELAND COUNTY PA - NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL ATTACKED AND KILLED AN ELDERLY COUPLE'S YORKIE "FRANKIE" AND THEN ATTEMPTED TO ATTACK THEIR OTHER YORKIE "CRICKET"

(Photo Credit: KDKA)

VIDEO 

GREENSBURG (KDKA) — A Westmoreland County couple afraid to walk their dog because of their neighbor’s dog, an animal they say is dangerous, reached out in desperation to Get Marty and KDKA’s Marty Griffin.

Conrad and Loretta Ashkettle say their pet Yorkie, named Frankie, was brutally attacked and killed by the PIT BULL next door.  Loretta is devastated. The couple is now afraid the pit bull living next door will attack and kill their other Yorkie, named Cricket.

“I just want Cricket to live in peace,” says Loretta.

That’s when KDKA and Get Marty got involved.

“That dog must be taken off the street. That dog will be taken off the street,” says defense attorney Phil Dilucente.

Meantime, KDKA’S Marty Griffin confronted the owners of the dog.

Right now, the dog is gone from the property.  The owners have also left the property.

SAN DIEGO CA - HERO - A WOMAN WAS FORCED TO FIGHT OFF A PIT BULL WITH A KNIFE IN ORDER TO SAVE HER GRANDMOTHER AND DOG

http://www.10news.com/news/woman-killed-pit-bull-to-save-grandma-dog-10292014

ROWLAND NC - FAMILY MEMBER'S 4 PIT BULLS ATTACKED THEIR 83-YEAR-OLD GRANDMOTHER, ALAMEANER DIAL, WHILE SHE WAS SITTING ON HER PORCH - MAULING AND DRAGGING HER INTO THE YARD AND ACROSS HER FLOWER GARDEN - SHE DIED AFTER BEING TAKEN OFF LIFE SUPPORT


UPDATE:  http://centralnc.twcnews.com/content/news/713463/elderly-woman-dies-after-being-attacked-by-dogs/


An 83-year-old Rowland woman is on life-support four days after she was attacked by her granddaughter’s PIT BULLS.  Alameaner Dial, of Gaddy’s Mill Road, was airlifted to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill after being mauled by two adult dogs and two puppies on Saturday evening, according to Bill Smith, director of the Robeson County Health Department.
Linda Dial, the woman’s daughter-in-law, said she, her husband and her son were the first to arrive after getting a phone call from a neighbor that the woman had been attacked while sitting on her porch.

“The next thing he heard was hollering and screaming for help. He saw her on the ground. You can see where the dogs dragged her off of the porch, across the doorstop and across her flower garden,” Linda Dial said. The dogs had pulled her to the ground. Linda’s husband and son kicked them off and the three covered her with towels.
“It seemed like she wasn’t aware of what happened to her, which is good. She wasn’t screaming or anything she just said ‘hold my hand I’m cold.’”
She was taken to New Hanover Medical Center where, according to Linda Dial, a nurse said she’d never seen a patient in such a condition.
“She said they were not equipped to handle such a severe patient,” she said. The woman was then transferred to UNC Hospitals. A spokesperson there said she is in serious condition.
"THEY'RE TELLING US THAT IF SHE SURVIVES SHE MAY LOSE ALL OR SOME OF HER EXTREMITIES," LINDA DIAL SAID.
According to Linda Dial, family members and neighbors had repeatedly asked that the dogs, which she said roamed in a large fenced in area, be restrained. She said the dogs were known to be vicious and had caused trouble in the neighborhood before.
“Nobody foresaw this, but everybody knew it was a dangerous situation,” Linda Dial said. “Everybody said ‘something has got to happen, we just hope they don’t bother Miss Dial.’” According to Linda, her mother-in-law has dementia and uses a walker.
Linda said the family had called police and the Department of Social Services trying to get someone to intervene. She brought this up when sheriff’s deputies and animal control officers arrived.
"WE TOLD THEM WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET YOU GUYS STO DO SOMETHING FOR MONTHS AND THEY SAID 'WE KNOW,WE'RE SO SORRY, WE'RE SO SORRY," SHE SAID.
Linda Dial feels the attack could have been avoided.
“It shouldn’t have happened … people that could have done something knew. We’re just upset that it had to take this,” she said.
LINDA DIAL SAID HER MOTHER-IN-LAW HOLDS THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER.  "SHE IS A WONDERFUL COOK, EVERYBODY JUST LOVES HER.  SHE WAS JUST A GOOD PERSON, OR SHE IS A GOOD PERSON....THESE ARE WELL THOUGHT OF PEOPLE.  SHE DOESN'T DESERVE THIS. NOBODY DESERVES TO BE MUTILATED BY DOGS."
According to Smith, one adult pit bull was shot to death by a family member and another and two puppies were euthanized. Smith said both adult dogs had been properly vaccinated, but the puppies’ brains were submitted for rabies testing.
Smith said late Thursday morning that the puppies tested negative for rabies. He advises that people treat any dog that doesn’t belong to them with suspicion.
"WE'RE FINDING THAT THE DOGS ARE JUST ACTING OUT OF NATURE...ALL OF A SUDDEN SOMETHING TRIGGERS IT." HE SAID.
Maj. Anthony Thompson, chief of detectives for the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office, said Wednesday afternoon that the attack was under investigation.
“Something needs to be done,” Linda Dial said. “It could happen to someone else. We’re taking it day by day if you would just keep the family in your prayers.”

CLEARFIELD UT - A PIT BULL THE FAMILY ADOPTED FROM A SHELTER 2 WEEKS AGO ATTACKED THEIR 5-YEAR-OLD BOY AS HE WAS PLAYING WITH IT LATCHING DOWN ON HIS STOMACH AND DRAGGING HIM - DISEMBOWELING HIM, BREAKING RIBS AND RIPPING AN EAR OFF

UPDATE:  A NEUTERED MALE ADOPTED BY THE FAMILY JUST 2 WEEKS AGO !!!!!

VIDEO:  5-year-old boy in surgery after dog bites, drags him


A 5-year-old boy is in surgery after being mauled  by a family PIT BULL Wednesday, officials said.
The boy was playing with the dog when it bit him near his stomach and proceeded to drag him through the yard, according to Davis County Animal Care and Control Director Clint Thacker. The incident occurred near 1100 South State in Clearfield.
"I HEARD THAT THERE WERE SOME INTESTINES THAT CAME OUT," HE SAID.  "IT WAS A THROUGH-BITE THAT TORE INTO THE INNER PART OF THE CHILD --THE ACTUAL CAVITY.  IT DIDN'T JUST BREAK THE SKIN; IT PUNCTURED INTO THE BOWELS."
THE BOY HAD BROKEN RIBS IN ADDITION TO SERIOUS GASHES OVER ONE EYE, ON HIS SIDE AND ON HIS STOMACH, ACCORDING TO THACKER.  HE SAID ONE OF THE BOY'S EARS WAS ALMOST COMPLETELY REMOVED.  

 No one saw the attack, but the boy's mother came out of the house and saw the dog on top of the boy. 
The boy was transported to Primary Children's Hospital by ambulance and Life Flight, according to Thacker. He said the boy was taken into surgery for non-life-threatening injuries.
The dog was confined to the backyard until animal control officers arrived. The owners then turned the dog over to Davis County and it was euthanized. 

OFFICIALS SAID THE FAMILY ADOPTED THE DOG FROM A SHELTER ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO.
Thacker said his department hasn't received any previous complaints about the dog. He didn't know what triggered this specific dog attack, but said people can be aware of aggressive behavior in dogs and other animals by watching for large pupils, raised hackles or staring. Playing with a dog's favorite toy or food, in addition to waking them from sleep, can trigger aggression, he said.
"A lot of times our children don't know to look for these things, and unfortunately they're the most often the victims of those attacks," he said.

DETROIT MI - WITH THE HELP OF HIS SISTER STEVE CONSTANTINE EXPLAINS TO US HOW THIS HORRIFIC, SENSELESS DOG ATTACK HAPPENED TO HIM

Steven Constantine.png

MAN WHO LOST 3 LIMBS IN PIT BULL MAULING SUES OWNER


It was about 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 when a PACK OF UP TO 12 PIT BULL AND MIXED-BREED DOGS  mauled 50-year-old Steven Constantine to near death in Detroit.
He spent almost a month in Intensive Care.

"It was worse than your worst nightmare," Constantine's sister, Katherine Hawley of Shelby Township, told MLive Detroit Monday.

Constantine, who narrowly survived, remains hospitalized facing numerous surgeries.

"HE LOST HIS LEFT ARM JUST BELOW HIS SHOULDER; THEY TRIED TO REATTACH HIS LEFT LEG BUT THEY HAD TO AMPUTATE THAT FOUR DAYS AGO...." HAWLEY SAID.

"They managed to save his right arm ... The dogs literally ate the large muscle and tendons in his forearm ... They reattached the foot to see if they can save it."
The dogs bit off Constantine's right ear, but fortunately did not impact his ability to hear and did not disfigure his face, Hawley said.

Constantine received skin grafts and the numerous bight marks on the crown of his head continue to heal.

comment
Constantine told police when interviewed 11 days after the attack that he was walking past a house on the 4500 block of Pennsylvania in east Detroit and saw the dog owner, Derick Felton, opening a large bag of dog food for his pack of dogs.  Constantine knew Felton, whom he referred to as a friend, from the area and referred to him by the nickname "Butch."

Felton said, "just seen him around the block and at the liquor store," when asked by police how he knew Constantine.

Mark Bernstein, an attorney for Farmington Hills-based Sam Bernstein Law Firm is representing Constantine in a $25,000-plus lawsuit against the dog owners, Derrick and Elizabeth Felton.

Bernstein provided MLive with statements made to police after the attack by both Derrick Felton and Constantine.

"I asked if I could help feed the dogs," Constantine told police. "He said, 'Yeah.' I started opening the bag, then the dogs started attacking and eating me alive."

Felton said he couldn't get the dogs off Constantine and went inside his home once medics arrived. The medics, fearing the dogs would attack them, stayed in their ambulance until police arrived, shooting and killing one. The gunfire ended the attack, sending the remaining dogs scurrying back into Felton's house.

"When you look at the way this mauling occurred, it suggests that the dog owner did nothing to assist our client," said Bernstein," that he essentially left the scene ... while Steve was pleading for help."

Detroit police killed one animal at the scene and 11 were subsequently euthanized by Detroit Animal Control. Police identified the dogs as pit bulls.

Felton admitted to owning "about 15" dogs, with the puppies included.

"Because I want to," Felton told the investigator when asked why he owned so many.

Detroit law limits the number of adult dogs at a single residence to four. A code violation is punishable by up to 20 days in jail and/or a $250 fine, according to the Code of Ordinances.

The Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy's office is reviewing the case for possible criminal charges and has asked the Detroit Police Department for further investigation.
The Feltons are not currently charged with any crimes, Worthy spokeswoman Maria Miller said Monday.

Constantine told police he's seen the dogs outside their yard before and they "go after people."

"They bark and growl a lot," Constantine told police. "Sometimes Butch will hit them or not feed them for a long time."

After the interview, police asked Constantine if he could sign his statement.

"No," Constantine said, "I don't have a hand, and I can't use my other one."

Hawley said she's been at the hospital 6-8 hours a day since the attack helping Constantine, who is unable to handle the most basic tasks, such as bathing, feeding himself or dressing.

"He can't even hold water to his lips," she said.

It's a role Hawley's familiar with, helping take care of her brother, but never to this extent.

"MY BROTHER GRADUATED WITH HONORS FROM MOTT JUNIOR COLLEGE IN WARREN, BUT DEVELOPED A MENTAL ILLNESS IN HIS  EARLY 20'S.  HE LIVED WITH MYSELF AND/OR MY BROTHERS MOST OF HIS ADULT LIFE," HAWLEY SAID MONDAY.  HE WENT MISSING A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AGO AND WE DESPERATELY TRIED TO FIND HIM...........THE WAY WE HEARD ABOUT THIS HORRIFIC INCIDENT IS THE DETROIT FREE PRESS CALLED ME FIVE DAYS AFTER STEVE WAS LYING IN THE BED AS JOHN DOE."

Constantine has a long road ahead, but Hawley hopes this attack will influence owners to take greater responsibility for their pets.

"This is not about pit bulls, this is about people, it is about irresponsible actions that (Felton) should be held accountable" for, said Bernstein. "Enough is enough. This type of reckless conduct is completely irresponsible in our community, or any community ... "

When Felton's interview with police concluded, the officer asked, "Is there anything else you want to say?"

"Why are you taking my dogs," he replied. "I got nothing else to say to you, man."

WEST CALDER, EDINBURGH SCOTLAND - GREAT GRANDFATHER ANDREW RUSSELL, 90, WHO RISKED HIS LIFE PROTECTING HIS WIFE OF 69 YEARS FROM AN ATTACK BY AN AMERICAN BULLDOG HAS DIED FROM HIS INJURIES

Hero great-grandfather dies month after shielding his wife from out-of-control dog
Andrew Russell, 90, stepped in when an AMERICAN BULLDOG pounced on wife Dorothy, 88, in the street over a month ago.
The OAP, who walked with a zimmer frame, wrestled the dog on the ground, but sustained horrific injuries.
The animal ripped the skin from his arm ‘right down to the bone’ before several men came to his aide.
Mr Russell, from West Calder, East Lothian, was taken to St John’s Hospital, in Livingston for treatment including skin grafts.
He initially made good progress when he was moved to the rehabilitation ward.
But his condition deteriorated and he sadly passed away on Friday.
Mr Russell’s grandson, Ryan Irvine, 40, a teacher from Livingston, said: ‘We see him as a hero, but around him we had to play it down.
‘He did not want to take any credit. He was glad that it was not my grandmother who sustained the injuries. He just said “I had to do what I had to do”.
‘From his point of view, he was glad he took the brunt of it. She is understandably upset as anybody would be. They have been married for 69 years.’
Mr Irvine added: ‘He was a very determined man and he never gave up easily if he put his mind to something. He was a very trusting and caring person.
Andrew’s family have received hundreds of messages from people expressing their shock and disgust at the dog attack.
They are now looking for answers and trying to find out what can be done to prevent attacks from dangerous dogs across the country.
A woman is facing two charges under the Dangerous Dogs Act in connection with the attack. Lee Campbell, 34, appeared at Livingston Sheriff Court last month.
The dog – which is not a banned breed – has been seized by police.

EAST GOSHEN, CHESTER COUNTY PA - 4 PIT BULLS ESCAPED A HOME AND ATTACKED 2 PEOPLE OUT FOR A WALK

Two people were taken to the hospital on Sunday after they were attacked by four dogs while walking in the first block of Brookmont Circle.
According to the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department, the victims were out for a walk around 5:40 p.m. when four pit bulls escaped from a nearby home and attacked. Police said two dogs attacked each person until the owner and a neighbor who heard the incident ran out and secured the animals.
Both victims were transported to Paoli Hospital by ambulance to receive treatment for lacerations and related injuries. Police said the injuries were serious but not life-threatening. The owner of the dogs, who police did not identify, provided police officers with up to date vaccination records for all of the dogs. The owner was extremely remorseful and apologetic, police said.
Police have not responded to any previous incidents involving the dogs or its owner, officials said. The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department provided the Chester County SPCA with information about the incident and it would be up to the shelter’s personnel to determine if any further action is required, police said.
