KNOX COUNTY OH - A ONE-MONTH-OLD INFANT BOY HAS BEEN FATALLY MAULED BY ONE OR MORE OF HIS FATHER'S PIT BULLS THAT RENDERED THE BABY'S HEAD SO SEVERELY INJURED THAT CPR COULD NOT BE GIVEN

The Knox County Sheriff’s office is investigating the death of a 1-month-old boy following a reported dog attack.
According to dispatchers, paramedics and deputies responded about 6:10 a.m. Wednesday to a 911 call from a home in the 16000 block of Wooster Road (Route 3) about seven miles northeast of Mount Vernon. The homeowner, Teddy Hagans, told the dispatcher that HIS DOG HAD ATTACKED AND MAULED HIS BABY BOY IN HIS BASSINET.
Hagans, 25, at one point was asked by the dispatcher if he needed the dispatcher to walk him through CPR, according to the 911 recording. Hagans declined, telling the dispatcher that the child’s head injuries were too severe.
The coroner’s office later pronounced the infant dead at the home. The county dog warden’s office removed TWO PIT BULLS from the residence.
The boy’s mother, Courtney Cole, 23, a certified nursing aide from Fredericktown whom authorities say is not married to Hagans, was not at the Wooster Road home at the time the incident occurred. She later called 911 twice.
The first call, from her mother’s house, was seemingly to confirm what she had been told had happened. The second call a short time later was to advise dispatchers that her mother was driving her to the scene at a high rate of speed and to ask that sheriff’s deputies please be told not to pull them over for speeding.
Knox County Sheriff David Shaffer has released no further information about the death while the investigation continues.
“There is probably more that we don’t know than what we do know right now,” Knox  Prosecutor Chip McConville told The Dispatch.  Any update will be reported on Dispatch.com as information becomes available.

PARADISE CA - OK SUN LEE, 61, WAS ATTACKED BY 2 PIT BULLS AS SHE WALKED AROUND IN HER OWN YARD...THE MEAT GRINDERS KNOCKED HER DOWN AND CHEWED HER LEGS, ARMS AND HEAD!

Action News Now
A Paradise woman is in fair condition at Enloe Medical Center tonight following a vicious PIT BULL  attack in her own yard. 

Paradise police responded to Keller Lane Friday morning to find the woman covered in blood.

Paradise police identified the victim as 61-year-old Ok Sun Lee.
Lee was just walking outside around her house when the dogs came onto her property and attacked.
Police said the woman was knocked down and was forced to curl into a ball as the dogs bit her legs, arms and head.
Lee was found screaming for help on her property as her husband tended to her wounds.
"In my 20 years of law enforcement, this is only the second time I've seen a severe mauling like this. Obviously there are bites, people get bitten, it happens, and a case like this where there really is significant injury, it's very very rare," said Paradise Police Lieutenant Anthony Borgman. 
The pit bulls are owned by two separate owners.  One dog is being quarantined at the Paradise Animal Control Shelter.  The other dog has been removed from Paradise until the investigation finishes.
Investigators will now determine whether charges will be filed against the dog's owners.

CHARLOTTE NC - 2 LAND SHARKS "SOMEHOW" GOT OUT OF THEIR FENCE AND BEGAN ATTACKING A 4-YEAR-OLD NEIGHBOR GIRL PLAYING IN HER YARD...HER MOTHER RAN TO SAVE HER AND THE PITS GOT HER...HER 7-YEAR-OLD SISTER BEGAN SCREAMING AT THEM FROM THE FRONT DOOR AND THE MEAT GRINDERS DASHED INTO THE HOUSE AND OUT THROUGH THE GARAGE RELENTLESSLY ATTACKING HER!!!


A vicious dog attack sent two girls to the hospital.
Their mother tells NBC Charlotte the children, ages seven and four, were bitten by two of the neighbor's PIT BULLS  while they were playing outside.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control says both dogs have now been surrendered.
The disturbing images of the 7-year-old girl’s injuries show it was never a fair fight.
“She got bitten on her inner thigh, she had to get stitches on her lip, she had to get stitches on her earlobe,” said Destiny Rupay, the girl's older sister. “If it wasn’t for my mom, they probably would have eaten my sister alive.”
Destiny, who wasn’t there at the time, is now helplessly looking back at what happened.
“I don’t think a 7-year-old that’s just coming outside to play should witness that,” says Destiny.
Destiny says it started when the neighbor’s dogs went after her 4-year-old sister in their front yard

"The dogs were surrounding my sister and going in circles around her," says Destiny. 
Their mom who jumped in and was also attacked by the dogs.  That's when the 7-year-old started yelling at the dogs from the house hoping to save her mom.  She opened the door and they attacked her,  THEY WENT INSIDE THE HOUSE," says Destiny.  THE DOGS DASHED INSIDE AFTER THE 7-YEAR-OLD AND FOLLOWED HER BACK OUT THROUGH THE GARAGE.  DESTINY SAYS THAT SISTER WAS RELENTLESSLY ATTACKED UNTIL A NEIGHBOR PULLED THE DOGS OFF. 
“She is such a brave girl because she came outside to get the dogs' attention,” says Destiny.
Off-camera, the owner of the dogs tells NBC Charlotte they apparently escaped through a hole in the fence.
She said one of them weighed more than 100 pounds.
“If you have violent dogs like that, you shouldn’t be in a neighborhood that has a lot of kids,” says Destiny.
Destiny says her 4-year-old sister was spared from more serious injuries because she kept quiet during the attack, but the 7-year-old got the worst of it.
“I do consider my sister a hero, she didn’t deserve that, she’s a strong little girl, she’s even trying to walk right now even though she can’t,” says Destiny.
Both dogs are now under rabies quarantine at the shelter.
The mom says she would like to see criminal charges filed in the case. Animal Care and Control says it’s an ongoing investigation.

SANFORD FL - LOGAN MILLSPAUGH, 10, WAS CALLED "WHITE LIGHTNING" BECAUSE OF HIS SPEED ON HIS POP WARNER FOOTBALL TEAM...BUT THE NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL DECIDED TO MAKE HIM IT'S 3RD VICTIM!!!


A 10-year-old Sanford boy is in a hospital Monday after he was mauled by A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL, officials said.
WFTV reporter Roy Ramos spoke with Logan Millspaugh's mother, Beth Lyons, who said Logan’s older brother helped save his life.
“His head is wrapped, (and) both of his legs. (He) can't walk,” Lyons said.
Logan remains hospitalized with severe injuries, Lyons said.
Lyons said Logan was attacked by a dog on Hayes Drive in Sanford on Saturday. Doctors at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital told Lyons that Logan will have a slow road to recovery and might not be able to walk again. 
Lyons said she credits her son’s survival to neighbors, incuding Roy Stone, who rushed to help.
“I tried to get in between him and the dog, but he was just relentless on that little kid,” said Stone.
But it was Logan's 12-year-old brother, Hunter, who first rushed to his side.
Stone said he saw Logan riding his bike when he was attacked by the dog.
“I think he is a hero.  I think he is the best big brother,” Lyons said. Lyons said the incident was not the first time Animal Services had responded to an attack with the dog. 
“I think that with it already attacking two people that something should have been done.”
Ramos tried but could not reach the dog’s owner.
Animal Services said the dog hadn’t been taken because the two prior incidents happened on the owner’s property.
“He may not have shut his gate really good,” Lyons said.
While Hunter might have saved his brother's life, his mother said she’s worried that Logan might not be able to enjoy what he loves best: playing football.  His Seminole Shark teammates on his Pop Warner team call him White Lightning because of his speed.
“He was trying to run, and when he saw his calf open, and he said, ‘My calf is gone! I can't go play football now,’” Stone said.
Animal Services said the dog will be quarantined for 10 days, but will likely be euthanized after causing a severe bite wound. 
The owner was not charged.

SAN JACINTO CA - A "RESPONSIBLE PIT BULL OWNER" JUST COULDN'T SEEM TO CONTROL THE 2 MEAT GRINDERS SHE WAS WALKING AND THEN COULDN'T HANG AROUND TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AFTER THEY MAULED A 10-YEAR-OLD POODLE NEARLY TO DEATH!!!



 - The owner of a 10-year-old poodle mix named "Bobo" is on the hunt for a woman who owns TWO PIT BULLS  that mauled Bobo while they were on a walk early Wednesday morning.
It happened in a neighborhood near Garret and Villines, and it was all caught on a neighbor's surveillance camera.
The video shows Bobo and his owner, Enrique Carrillo, walking when all of a sudden a woman loses control of her two pit bulls, and they charge Bobo.
"When I heard her saying Oh my God, Oh my God, I turned, that's when she couldn't hold the dogs no more," Carrillo said.
Carrillo desperately tries to protect Bobo to no avail, as the dogs pursue him and begin to maul Bobo.
Neighbor Leandra Maquinales told FOX11 she heard all the commotion and came outside with a stick to help separate the dogs. She said the owner of the pit bulls was being dragged by the dogs.
"Even for a second she just sat there and let them run after him, I was telling her get up what are you doing, help, get your dogs!" she said.
By the time the attack was over, Bobo was in bad shape.
"He was in a lot of pain, his eyes were rolling over, his tongue was sticking out, I thought I was gonna lose him," Carrillo said. "First thing I thought about was saving his life, take him to the emergency room."
While they were at the vet, Maquinales was with the owner of the pit bulls for a short time before she left the scene.
"She was kicking them and she was like this is the last straw I'm taking you to the pound cursing at them," she said. "Even her actions afterwards, and not even taking responsibility for herself, like these are my dogs I'm sorry, she wasn't even acting like that."
That's why Carrillo said he blames the owner, not the dogs, and he wants her to take responsibility for her actions.
He said Bobo's vet bills topped over $1,100, but he would pay whatever it took to save his life.
"Hopefully he'll be an active dog very soon the way he was before, he's a very happy boy," Carrillo said. "I don't think he ever deserved to be done like this."
The owner of the pit bulls has not yet been identified, and the dogs haven't been located.
Carrillo said he did make a report with authorities, and they've been patrolling the neighborhood in search of them.

SALINE COUNTY AR - 4 PIT BULLS JUMPED A FENCE AND ATTACKED A MAN WHO HAD BEEN OFFERED A DRINK AND WAS STANDING OUTSIDE THE FENCE



A Saline County man is recovering from injuries suffered from a PIT BULL attack that occurred Monday, according to a report from the Saline County Sheriff's Office.
At about 6:35 p.m., deputies responded to 524 Atkins Road in reference to a dog bite.
Once there, officers noticed the victim — Matthew Bean, 23 — being loaded into an ambulance as medics treated "several lacerations all over his body," the report stated.
Bean told officers that Tammy Godsey asked him if he wanted a beer and that he was waiting in front of her home.
That is when Bean says Godsey  
"LET HER FOUR PIT BULLS OUT OF HER HOUSE." 
Bean added that the dogs jumped a fence and began biting him. The report states that Bean attempted to run from the K-9s as he screamed for help.
He said he jumped a fence to try and get away, but that one of the dogs, too, leaped over the fence and began biting him and holding him to the ground.
According to the report, Bean said a man came to his aid, beating the dog with a pipe until it stopping attacking.
Bean was transported to Saline Memorial Hospital.
Godsey was cited with four counts of violating County Ordinance 2010-64 Vicious Animal.
Godsey's boyfriend, Jason Halpine, too, was cited with four counts of violating the vicious animal ordinance.
According to Lt. Jeff Silk, spokesman for the Saline County Sheriff's Office, all four dogs were taken from the home Tuesday and will be put down. He added that the four animals also will be tested for rabies.

RICETON SASKATCHEWAN CANADA - CAMERON MUSHANSKI, 6, WAS FATALLY MAULED AT HIS GRANDPARENTS HOUSE BY THEIR 2 ALASKAN MALAMUTE DOGS



A six-year-old boy is dead after being mauled by dogs at his grandparents’ house in Riceton, Sask. on Wednesday evening.
Family described Cameron Mushanski as the light of their life — a bubbly, smiley kid who loved the video game Minecraft. He had just lost his two front teeth last week and was excited for a visit from the tooth fairy.

“He was our pride and joy. Every day with him, watching him grow and discover things, and the things he got excited about. To see the wonder in his face,” Cameron’s grandfather Dan Trelnuk said.
“He was just the type of kid to walk into the room, and he literally lit the room up. He was everything,” Cassandra Demery, Cameron’s aunt, said.
The boy lived with his grandparents, who had rescued the two Alaskan Malamute dogs from Alberta  a couple of years ago. Cameron wasn’t allowed to be near their pen and had never gone near it before, Trelnuk said.
“It was the same routine we’d had every day: he’d get home from school at four, come inside, play a bit inside,” Trelnuk said.
“And then he got up and said ‘I’m going to go play outside.’ I saw him playing with his toys by the swing, bouncing on the trampoline. I didn’t hear anything,” he said.
“And then when my wife got home, he normally runs up to the car,” he said.
When he didn’t greet her, the couple went looking for their grandson.
“We lost the light of our life,” Trelnuk said.
RCMP were called just after 6:40 p.m. Wednesday. Stars Air Ambulance was also called, but it was too late.
RCMP is currently investigating the circumstances of the attack. It is still unclear if one or both dogs were involved.
TWO LARGE BREED ALASKAN MALAMUTE DOGS  were seized at the scene. At the request of the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region, they were euthanized Thursday morning.
“It’d be speculative at this time to actually comment on [potential charges], we’re early on in the investigation. We just have to let the investigation go forward,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Rob Embree.
The family has set-up a GoFundMe page to try and raise funds for the boy’s funeral.
Cameron had just started Grade 1 at Milestone Elementary School. The Prairie Valley School Division declined to comment on the death of the child or whether any services will be provided to the students.
“I’d give anything to have one more day with that kid. To hear ‘I love you auntie, I’ll see you tomorrow,’ or ‘I’ll see you next week.’ Anything,” Demery said.
