 A Baldwin County deputy shot and killed  2 PIT BULLS  Thursday after seeing one dog attack a cat and after the other charged him. The dogs were shot in the 13400 block of Fourth Street at about 6:30 p.m. 

A pet owner called the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office after the dogs attacked his two cats. The owner of the cats intervened during the attack and was bitten by the dogs, the Sheriff's Office said. An ambulance crew treated the owner's injuries.

While the deputies were on scene, there was a second attack on a cat by one of the dogs, the Sheriff's Office said.

"One deputy shot the attacking pit bull and at that time the second dog charged him as well," according to a Sheriff's Office release. "That dog was also shot. Both dogs perished along with at least one cat that the pit bulls had been attacking."

The dogs' owner may face charges for allowing the dogs to run at large, the Sheriff's Office said.



PRYOR OK - A FAMILY'S BELOVED BOXER "MURDOCK" WAS ATTACKED AND KILLED BY A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL - 10 WEEKS AGO THEIR DAUGHTER WAS ATTACKED BY ANOTHER NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL !!!!!



A family in Oklahoma is mourning the loss of their beloved Boxer, Murdock, after he was killed on Tuesday by a neighbor’s two Pit Bulls that escaped their yard, reports KFOX23.
The family requested that their identity not be revealed as they try to cope with the vicious killing of their 6-year-old pet and the fear they feel because their daughter was also recently the victim of a Pit Bull attack. 
The family told KFOX23  that they called police Tuesday afternoon to report that two of their neighbor’s dogs were loose, and soon afterward she heard yelping from her back yard and found the two Pit Bulls underneath her deck, killing her dog.  
She called again for the police, who arrived quickly and managed to get the dogs off Murdock, but the beloved pet died shortly after being rushed to a veterinarian.  
 Although the Pit Bulls were impounded, KOKI reports that the owner merely paid a fine and took the dogs home.
“This is the second attack for our family in a 10-week period,” the woman said.
The family’s young daughter was attacked in August by a Pit Bull belonging to a different neighbor, and that dog was euthanized.

However, the woman told KFOX23 that her family is living in fear,  “I don’t want to see another child go through what my daughter went through. And I definitely don’t want to see a child dead.”  
The woman’s fiancĂ© blames the attacks on irresponsible pet owners who don’t have proper facilities to confine their dogs, and people “who believe that you can just simply love the instincts out of the dog--it doesn’t happen,” he said. 
The family supports requiring pet insurance for large dogs as a good first step.
The Mayor said he is targeting big dogs and specifically Pt Bulls. “I’m not being cruel. I’m trying to protect the children,” Tramel said.

The Mayor spoke of the little girl that was attacked by a Pit Bull and he doesn’t believe it is fair to the child and family that the dog’s owner only had to pay the city’s dog at large fine.
“They paid $195 for a dog at large. That’s not right,” Tramel said. “Now the person who got maimed, they’re scarred for life. They have medical costs the rest of their life.”
The owner of the two Pit Bulls who killed Murdock is scheduled in court on Monday, Police said, adding that they hope to file tougher charges.

FRANKLIN COUNTY KY - A ROTTWEILER ATTACKED AND KILLED A BELOVED FAMILY DOG "LIZZY" AS SHE WAS BEING WALKED BY HER OWNER - THE FAMILY HAS ASKED FOR A CHANGE TO MAKE NEIGHBORHOODS SAFER

VIDEO

A dog attack is motivating a Franklin County family to push for change. Two rottweilers were put down Thursday morning, after one bit a person in August, and the other killed a small dog in the area on Monday.
For the Ellis's, the dog that was killed was more than just a pet.
"It's just like a best friend, and I miss her a lot," said Dennis Ellis.
Lizzy was a part of the family, and her life was taken. On Monday, Dennis was walking Lizzy through their Silver Lake neighborhood, when the small dog was attacked.
"The dog just grabbed Lizzy and I don't know if probably only lasted 20 seconds... But, 17 pounds and a huge rottweiler, that's all it took," said Dennis.
Dennis said the rottweiler was in the middle of the road, was not on a leash, and wasn't aggressive at first. However, he said after the animal approached Lizzy, things quickly changed. 
"I mean that dog was very aggressive once it attacked Lizzy. So, it would have torn up anybody," said Dennis.
"Obviously he crushed her and slung her around like a little rag doll. And it could have been a baby or a little child," added Sue Ellis. Luckily no child was hurt, but Lizzy was in bad shape. "Pray, pray, pray, that Lizzy is going to be OK," said Sue.
The couple rushed the dog to the vet, and after surgery Lizzy sadly didn't make it. The dog had ten broken ribs, a broken jaw, a punctured lung and dozens of wounds.
On Tuesday morning, the Franklin County Humane Society said the rottweiler owner willingly surrendered two of his dogs .
"One dog had bitten a state worker in August, the other dog killed Lizzy Monday and they were both euthanized today (Thursday)," said Sue.
Now the Ellis's want to turn tragedy into change. "I just hope that through this, Lizzy's death, that maybe it will make the neighborhood safer," said Dennis.
"That other families realize the danger to the public, to the community," said Sue.
The Ellis's said they've gone to the Mayor and City Council. While they said they don't want to ban big dogs, they do want more precautions in neighborhoods like theirs.
"I want our neighborhoods to be able to go for a walk and return safely home," said Sue.
The Ellis's said they went to the Franklin County Attorney asking that the rottweillers' owner be charged with harboring a vicious animal.

GRAND RAPIDS MI - PRYING THE PIT OFF - A PIT BULL BROKE AWAY FROM ITS OWNER TO ATTACK ANOTHER DOG BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER


Even powerful shocks from a police taser couldn't immediately get a pit bull to release it's grip on a dog it was attacking Thursday night in Grand Rapids.

"They tased the pit bull twice and It had no effect on that dog," recalls witness Tom Feldman. "That dog still had its jaws locked onto that other dog."
A woman had the pit bull out on a leash when it broke free and attacked a pair of dogs another man was walking.
They were in a small crowd watching undercover officers execute a search warrant on Stocking Avenue.
The pit bull broke loose, leapt at the other two dogs, and latched onto one of them.
Steve Wright is the owner of the dog under attack. He immediately tried to wrestle the pit bull away.
"I did not hesitate," he says. "It was my dog. I did not want to see harm come to her. I was the only one trying to separate them."
Repeated shocks by a taser pressed against it's body finally loosened the pit bull's jaw and the other dog was able to escape.
Sissy, the dog that was attacked, went home with her owner, but may need treatment by a vet.
Her owner's hands were bitten when he tried to separate the dogs.
Medics advised him to get stitches.
Animal control took the pit bull, but officers on the scene could not say what will happen to it or what charges the owner may face.
"That dog does not belong outside," observes Feldman.
"They need to put that dog down," says Wright.

CARPENTERSVILLE IL - A PIT BULL BROKE THROUGH A SCREEN DOOR TO ATTACK A MAIL CARRIER

A female postal worker suffered lacerations to her head  and arms after she was attacked by a PIT BULL Thursday in Carpentersville.  Police said the dog’s owner told them that the dog broke through a screen door at the owner’s home on Alameda Drive about 12:45 p.m.. The owner rushed outside after the dog and found the mail carrier on the ground. The postal worker was taken to a hospital for treatment. The dog was captured by animal control officials and was to be taken to an animal hospital for observation while authorities investigate the attack. Police said authorities will determine if charges are warranted against the dog’s owner, who was not identified.

BEN LOMOND CA - TWO PIT BULLS RUN LOOSE ONCE AGAIN ATTACKING CITIZENS - ONE WAS SHOT AND ONE WAS EVENTUALLY EUTHANIZED

VIDEO

Two Ben Lomond residents are telling their story of surviving an attack by 2 PIT BULLS  that escaped from a backyard yesterday.  Neighbors say this isn't the first time this has happened.  

They say the dogs showed aggressive behavior and began biting people.   It happened along the eight thousand block  of Glen Arbor Road in Ben Lomond.  Two pit bulls - a female named NANI and a male called POPPA  escaped from their owners backyard.  

"I heard my neighbors daughter scream and start to cry. I stopped what I was doing ran out with a stick and sure enough she had been bitten on the knee, bitten on the elbow and the dog was roaming around challenging anything and everything,"   said JARED KROPP  who tried to get both animals off the street but they turned on him biting both his legs. 

'IT DEFINITELY WAS A LITTLE SHOCKING WHEN I GOT BIT BY TWO DOGS AT THE SAME TIME."

This isn't the first time the dogs have gotten out.  Last November they made their way into Carrie Federick's backyard. This made her angry and scared.   

"You know this guy, I know that he thinks they're nice and they're nice to his kids but they're not nice to the rest of the neighborhood,"   says Federick.

The owner says an intruder let the dogs out.. He says he was out to dinner on Wednesday night when his dogs got loose..... Only to return home to find one of the dogs dead .... Killed after apparently charging a fire fighter. 

Neighbors questioned why the two vicious dogs were returned to the owner after they had gotten out and shown aggressive behavior last fear,  but animal control officers say they had no reason to suspect the dogs would get out again.  In this particular case this owner complied with everything stipulated in a court order, regarding animals being vicious.  He built a very large fence, poured concrete along the bottom so they couldn't get out, got locks for the gate and in this particular case those dogs were returned to him based on the fact he was showing he was responsible and was able to care for these dogs properly. 

The people bitten are expected to recover.  The surviving pit bull, POPPA, was brought to Santa Cruz County Animal Services yesterday and euthanized.  The owner is faving a $1,000 fine plus additional costs.  The Ben Lomond Fire Department also released this statement:  "Our firefighter did everything he could to scare the dog off....as a last resort he had to strike the animal.....All actions conducted on scene were done in the best interest of the patients, bystanders and firefighters.  The loss of the animal saddens our department greatly.

COLLINSVILLE OK - A ROTTWEILER/BULLMASTIFF MIX ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL AS SHE WAS PLAYING WITH HER BIKE AFTER SCHOOL

A 5-year-old Collinsville girl is in the hospital recovering from a dog attack.
A 2-year-old ROTTWEILER/BULLMASTIFF MIX  grabbed Payton White Tuesday evening, according to a witness.  The girl's father said the injuries look more like a shark attack than dog bites.
It took surgeons six hours to repair the injuries to Payton's arm, head and the massive holes in her neck. Her dad says she has hundreds of stitches.
Payton and her sister come to their nana's house every day after school and love to ride their bikes.
"I bet I didn't get 3 feet and I heard the screaming," great-grandmother Lois Scott said.
Neighbor Jesse Hixon said, "I've never heard a baby scream like that."
Nixon's kids play with Payton and her sister. He said he thought he saw the dog attacking a woman so he raced down the street and yanked and kicked the dog away.
"She was passing out," Nixon said. "I was saying Payton, baby, stay awake. I was shaking her, I was halfway in the front and back seat."Nixon and Scott raced Payton to the hospital.
The dog's owner said it's a tragedy but his dog Harley wasn't aggressive, had never bitten anyone and played with the kids all the time.
A report says he told deputies Harley kept getting out of this pen.
Payton's father says Harley has been aggressive and nipped his other daughter's face a couple of months ago. He wants the owners prosecuted.
Without a history of complaints, it could end up being a civil case rather than criminal.
Right now, the focus is on Payton's recovery, because for a moment there, nana didn't think Payton would make it.
"I just knew she was going to die before I could get her to the ER," Scott said. "I thought, 'If they have to give her blood, I'd give her all my blood.'"
