Autoridades desconocían sobre el perro, si era de algún familiar o vecino, por lo que se le hicieron las indicaciones a la afectada para que pusiera su denuncia al Ministerio Público.

VANIER, OTTAWA ONTARIO CANADA - A 50-YEAR-OLD WOMAN HAS LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES AFTER BEING ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL

UPDATE: http://www.ottawasun.com/2016/07/23/dog-brutally-mauls-woman-in-vanier-neighbours-rush-to-rescue 

dog mauling
Lindsay and Michael Holmes stand in their backyard. Behind them is the fence they jumped to save their neighbor being mauled by a pit bull.

Michael Holmes had just eaten lunch with his wife and their toddler son around 12:30pm when they heard cries for help coming from the house behind theirs on Marier Avenue in Vanier.

"We hopped the fence and found her in the balcony being severely mauled by this PIT BULL," Holmes said.  "She had significant blood loss and flesh loss as well. It was doing a number on her."

Using a piece of wood, Holmes said he hit the dog multiple times in the head before it retreated back into the house.  "He paused long enough for us to get the woman out of the doorway and let the door shut," he said.

Lindsay, who works as a first-aid instructor, grabbed medical supplies to help the 50-year-old woman who had lost chunks of flesh from her arm and leg. "You could see down to the fatty tissue and the tendons on her arm.  When paramedics came they put tourniquets on her arm and leg." 

Gisele Leroux, 59, lives in a unit above Holmes and she jumped the fence to also assist.  "If we weren't home, the poor woman would have died; the dog did not want to let go."

Paramedics said because of the location of the incident, firefighters had to help extricate the victim. 

The pit bull is owned by the daughter of the victim.  The daughter lives downstairs with the dog while the mother lives upstairs.      

Holmes, who himself owns two dogs, said that he is very uncomfortable with pit bulls in the area and would like to see more restrictions placed on owners in light of the mauling.

CALIFORNIA - THE MODESTO BEE: EDITORIAL/OPINION - "LET COMMUNITIES PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM DANGEROUS DOGS"


MELTHAM, WEST YORKSHIRE ENGLAND - A POSTAL WORKER SUFFERED SEVERE ARM INJURIES AFTER BEING ATTACKED BY A "STAFFIE/PITTIE"


A postman has been mauled by a crazed dog which set upon him as he delivered mail.
The postal worker, named locally as Jack and thought to be in his 20s, suffered serious arm injuries in the attack in Meltham, West Yorkshire, on Friday.
Neighbours told how the dog, thought to be a STAFFORDSHIRE BREED, had to be hit several times with a shovel before it would let go.
Postie Jack was rushed to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, where he underwent emergency surgery to his injured arm, the Examiner reported .
The dog was seized by police following the attack, which happened in Golcar Brow Road around 10.50am.
Neighbour Robert Dickinson used the shovel to try stop the dog.
“All I could hear was wrenching screams for help,” he said.
“I came out, saw him and ran back to get the shovel.
“It had pinned him against a fence.
“I hit the dog with the shovel but it wouldn’t let go. It was hungry for blood, you could see it in its eyes.
“It was some sort of Staffy.”
Neighbour Stacey Allan estimated that the attack lasted around five to 10 minutes.
“It was horrible. The dog had hold of his right arm.
“It was pulling him around and he was in agony and there was blood everywhere.
“We got it off and he fell to the floor.
“His arm was pumping with blood so we put belt around to try stem it until the ambulance came.
"He had to be taken into the ambulance and the police came and took the dog away.
“It’s shocking because lots of children play around here. Something needs to be done so this doesn’t happen again.”
A man, who would not give his name but was living at the house where the dog came from, confirmed the attack but said he was “only looking after it for a friend.”
He added: “I went to get the post and the dog must’ve jumped over the fence in the back garden.”
Police said nobody had yet been arrested since the 10.50am attack, but the dog had been seized. No description of the dog was given.
Royal Mail spokeswoman Morag Turnbull said: “Royal Mail can confirm that a serious incident occurred today in Golcar Brow Road, Meltham, when a postman was attacked by a dog in the street whilst delivering the mail.
“Police attended the scene and seized the dog. The postman has been taken to hospital and is receiving treatment to an injury to his arm. Our thoughts are with him and his family at this distressing time.
A spokeswoman for the Communication Workers Union (CWU) said: “The postman is a member of the union and safety reps and other union officials have been involved. He has apparently suffered very serious injuries including significant blood loss. He is at Huddersfield Royal infirmary having emergency surgery, I understand.
“We would like the law to be applied to both the owner and keeper of the dog.”
A recent change in the law means prosecutions can be brought in cases where dog attacks occur on private property as well as in public places.
Dave Joyce, CWU health, safety and environment officer, said: “This is a serious attack with serious injuries and we expect the owner and keeper of this dog to feel the full force of the law.
“Our thoughts are firstly with our member who has been seriously injured during the course of his job delivering the post. We will give him every support he needs, including through the criminal prosecution which we expect to be brought and also if he wants to pursue civil action.
“We expect the police to bring an appropriate prosecution following their investigation.”

If you can watch this, note how the pit is wagging the tail the entire time. Note how it goes back to attack, not relenting until the prey is dead and even then not relenting. Pit owners should be made to watch these tapes, to see what the breed does and is capable of doing. THIS IS NOT NORMAL FOR DOGS EXCEPT THE PIT BULL.

Why should we have to rely on owners controlling this breed? Most people can't even housebreak their dogs, but pits are being adopted to those people.

UPDATE:  

A pit bull was shot dead by police after it repeatedly mauled its owner on the street in Yichang, Hubei Province on July 18, The Paper reported.  The man, surnamed Rao, was seriously injured while taking the dog on a walk before he was attacked by it in the morning on that day. 


A video shared online shows a passer-by trying to help him with a stick.

When the police officers arrived at the scene, the dog had run away to its former owner's yard.

Policemen shot it to death after they asked for the owner's permission.
According to the report, the former owner of the dog was Rao's friend.
Rao had surgery at a local hospital and is not in critical condition. The two sides dealt with the compensation in private.
Police explained that the dog was in heat so it went crazy and attacked its owner.

ZIMBABWE AFRICA - A 61-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS MAULED BY A PROMINENT BUSINESSMAN'S DOG AS SHE WAS FETCHING WATER - SHE WAS HOSPITALIZED FOR 3 MONTHS AND HER FAMILY IS RECEIVING "LIVE BEASTS" AS COMPENSATION

A prominent Gwanda businessman Mr Mbonisi Mpala has paid several beasts to compensate a Stanmore woman who was viciously attacked by his dog early last year and hospitalised for three months. 

Mr Mpala owns the popular Stanmore Business Centre, business venture, Tshisa Nyama which comprises a restaurant, butchery and bar. 

The businessman's vicious dog savaged 61-year-old, Mrs Evelyne Dube of Stanmore when his pack was being taken out for exercises. 

Mrs Dube was coming from fetching water from a nearby borehole.

In an interview with the Sunday News, Mpala confirmed that he has paid Mrs Dube the beasts to compensate her for the bites.

"First when she was bitten I didn't go to see her for some time until I gathered courage to approach the family. I went with a mediator and they told me that they wanted a beast because I had disrespected them. I paid that beast," said Mr Mpala.

"I also took over all the medical expenses for her. I even provided transport for her physio-therapy until she recovered. The family later came back and demanded that I pay them six more beasts which I did over the weekend. All including seven live beasts and the equivalent of the money I used amounts to 10 beasts," he said.

Mr Mpala said he was not bitter about it, but was doing it because as neighbours they should live harmoniously.

"It was an accident and that dog was not even mine. It belonged to a friend who had brought it for safekeeping. However, after everything has been said and done what remains is that as relatives we should live together in peace and love," he said.

However, Mrs Dube's son, Mr Luckson Dube although he confirmed receiving seven beasts, said they were for medical bills they incurred not compensation for injuries.

"He (Mpala) said he will pay the medical bills and those cattle were for that purpose. We haven't met to discuss about what he would do about the permanent disability of my mother. The decision will come out when we meet as a family," said Mr Dube.

He added: "One of the beasts was for saying sorry for delaying in meeting us over the issue. The six were for medical bills incurred which were $3 960. However, what's important is for us to live in harmony. He is our neighbour hence our relative."

Mrs Dube was admitted to hospital for three months after the dog attack.

BRISBANE AU - A PIT BULL BEING WALKED ATTACKED A LARGE DOG WALKING PAST IT AND THE OWNERS TRY TO "PRY THE PIT OFF"



Pit Bull attacks dog walking past while owners try to stop it



NEWMILNS SCOTLAND - THE SADISTIC ADDICTION OF PIT BULLS....A 52-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS FOUND GUILTY OF KEEPING PIT BULLS FOR FIGHTING EVEN THOUGH HE HAD BEEN BANNED FROM HAVING THEM...IN HIS WORDS: "I'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN DOG FIGHTING FOR 20 OR 30 YEARS AND ONLY SEEN ONE DOG DIE AND IT WAS STILL WAGGING ITS TAIL AS IT DIED"

Dog fighting: Tony Barbara kept pit bulls Jackie (top right) and Kira.
A man kept two pit bull terriers for dog fighting despite being banned from keeping the animals.
Tony Barbara was also found to have "breaking sticks" to train the dogs to fight in the underground practice.
The 52-year-old was found guilty of breaching the Dangerous Dogs Act by keeping two female pit bulls, Kira and Jackie, at his home in Newmilns, East Ayrshire, in November 2014.
At Kilmarnock Sheriff Court on Thursday, Barbara was also found guilty of being in possession of equipment to be used in dog fighting including syringes, medications and breaking sticks after Scottish SPCA officers raided his home.
Seized: A breaking stick and medication among items found at Barbara's home.
He had previously been served with a order disqualifying him from keeping dogs for ten years at Snaresbrook Crown Court in London in July 2013.
Barbara was found to be in breach of this order, as well as acting to cause the dogs unnecessary suffering by engaging in animal fighting, contrary to the animal welfare legislation.
The court previously heard Barbara told animal welfare officers he had been involved in dog fighting for 20 or 30 years and had only seen one dog die - a terrier that "was still wagging its tail as it died".
Barbara was also found guilty of behaving and a threatening and abusive manner in Newmilns on October 24, 2014.
Sentence was deferred for reports until later this month.
