SUFFIELD CT - JANET D'ALEO, 95, OF ENFIELD SUFFERED LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES FROM A PIT BULL/POINTER MIX AND WAS RUSHED TO BAYSTATE MEDICAL SPRINGFIELD MA WHERE SHE DIED

dog attack in Suffield

A 95-year-old woman died after being mauled by a pit bull at the Suffield, Conn. home of an animal rights activist and former state representative.
Janet D’Aleo of Enfield died at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Mass., after being bitten Wednesday, police said Friday. They said the dog lived at 584 Thrall Ave., the home of former state Rep. Annie Hornish, an animal rights activist.

D’Aleo had been visiting Hornish’s mother at the home when the dog, a male pit bull/pointer mix, bit her on her lower extremities, causing “substantial and severe injuries,” Chief Richard Brown said. The dog has been quarantined.

Investigators are still trying to find out what prompted the dog to bite D’Aleo and are looking into the animal’s background. The Hornish family has had the 4-year-old dog for several months, and in that time, neither police nor the animal control officer has received any complaints about it, Brown said.

“We’re not even calling it an attack,” Brown said Friday morning.  Hornish said the dog, Dexter, was reacting to being hit repeatedly with a metal stool by her mother’s home health aide, who apparently thought the dog was greeting their visitor too enthusiastically when he jumped on D’Aleo, who uses a walker. Her mother, Agnes Wosko, uses a wheelchair.

“It seems as if the dog got excited and it was overexuberant," Hornish said. "[The dog] jumped on a friend with a walker and she fell backward and we believe that’s what killed her.  The aide hit the dog so hard, one of the legs of the stool bent, Hornich said.  

D’Aleo, a longtime friend of Wosko’s, has visited the home before and has been around the dog a number of times without any problems, Hornish said.

“The dog has no history, whatsoever, of aggression," she said. "The dog has been around children and has been around Janet D’Aleo multiple times. These are not breed specific issues and that is something people who have pit bulls understand.”  “It’s a horrible tragedy," Hornish said. "We lost a very good friend of the family. We do think this was an accident, a very unfortunate accident. We are still grieving.”

According to police, dispatchers received a call about the attack at 2:53 p.m. Wednesday. The caller said a woman had been bitten and was bleeding.  First responders saw that her injuries were life-threatening and she was rushed to the hospital, where she died.

Part of the police investigation involves finding out where the dog is from, the police chief said.  “The detective assigned and our animal control officer are still working to gather additional information before drawing any conclusions,” Brown said. “We’re trying to find out about the pedigree of this animal. If it was a rescue, where did it come from?”

It’s too early to determine whether there will be any arrests, he said.  “We don’t make an assessment of whether probable cause exists for an arrest until we have all the facts,” Brown said.

Hornish was a member of the state House of Representatives from 2009 to 2011. She is listed online as the Connecticut Senior State Director of the Humane Society of the United States. During her time in the legislature she worked to fight animal cruelty, opposing puppy mills and the sale of shark fins.  She also is against the legalization of bear hunting.

MONAHANS TX - NOAH MEDELLIN WAS IN THE YARD WITH A PIT BULL HIS MOTHER AGREED TO TAKE CARE OF FOR A FEW DAYS ...THEN THE LOVING LAND SHARK "SHIFTED" AND TRIED TO TAKE THE CHILD'S HEAD OFF!!!



(KOSA) - A six-year-old boy’s life has been changed forever after a  PIT BULL  attacked him last week in Monahans.


The family of that young boy said they expect him to spend months in the hospital recovering from an attack no one saw coming.
“Seeing my child in pain, this is the last thing I ever wanted to deal with,” Kianna Johnson-Medellin said. “It’s been really hard on all of us.”
Six-year-old Noah fought for his life last week.
In the attack, his scalp was torn to the bone while his cheeks were ripped open and he lost both of his ears.
His grandfather Jose Garcia said that night he was nearly unrecognizable.
“He almost looked like a burn victim when you saw him,” Garcia said. “It was dark and the mud and the dirt and he had his eyes closed, he couldn’t hardly speak. All he kept saying was he was too young.”
The family said Noah’s grandmother was inside during the attack, unaware that he was in the yard.
So, no one knows what led to the violent attack.
Noah told them he played dead allowing himself to be bit several more times until the dog finally left him alone.
“Tough to think what he was going through and how long the attack lasted,” Garcia said. “Nobody really knows.”
The strange thing is only days before that same pit bull appeared to be her son’s new best friend.
Noah’s mother explained she agreed to take care of her friend’s dog for a few days.
When Noah was sick, the dog laid at his feet and slept peacefully in her bed.
The whole time, she said the dog didn’t so much as growl.
“It’s a scary thought to know that an animal could go from being so loving to everything shifting,” Johnson-Medellin said.
A week after the incident, Garcia met with the dog’s owner who agreed to put the dog down after he saw photos of what it was capable of.
Now the family said they’re focused on giving Noah support as he continues to heal in a Dallas hospital.
The family has created a GoFundMe account to help with Noah’s hospital bills.

BEAUMONT TX - AUSTYN CLANTON, 9, WAS MAULED BY HIS FAMILY'S AMERICAN BULLDOG THAT CHOMPED DOWN ON HIS LEFT ARM AND BEGAN SHAKING ...HIS PARENTS ARE PROUD OF HIS BRAVERY THROUGH THE MANY SURGERIES AS DOCTORS WORK TO SAVE HIS ARM!




HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A 9-year-old kid has had more surgeries than people twice his age.

After he was attacked by his family's dog, Austyn Clanton was taken to Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital, where doctors there had to get creative to save his arm.

"He started biting, scratching," said Austyn, describing the moments his dog attacked his left arm in his Beaumont home. "The AMERICAN BULLDOG  was shaking this arm up and down, up and down."

Austyn was taken to a local hospital, but then transferred to Memorial Hermann Children's in Houston to be treated.

"I was a Navy corpsman before, when I was in the military. With the Marines, I've seen trauma and chaos, but it's different when it's your child," says Austyn's father, Brad Clanton.
Doctors at Memorial Hermann had to repair several arteries and replace a muscle in his arm, by taking one from his back.

"We're very hopeful, and so far, things are looking good," says pediatric surgeon for UT Health and Memorial Hermann, Dr. Phuong Nguyen.

His parents couldn't be more thankful.

"We lean on faith," says his mother, Vanessa Clanton.

His parents also say they're proud of their young son's bravery in all of this.

"It was really impressive for him to be as chill and calm and just ready," Brad said.

Austyn has a long road to recovery, but will go home soon.

It's been an experience, his parents say, they don't want to see happen again.

"It's very emotional, it's intense, it's not good. I don't want to see it again," says Brad.

DEBARY, VOLUSIA COUNTY FL - UGLY UGLY UGLY MONSTERS GENETICALLY BRED TO KILL CAME UP TO A KITCHEN DOOR AND GRABBED A FAMILY'S ELDERLY CAT ...ANIMAL UNCONTROL SAYS NOTHING CAN BE DONE UNTIL THEY KILL SOMETHING ELSE!!!



A DeBary couple is upset after they say a dog attacked and killed their cat Monday morning. 
They say the cat was sitting outside by the kitchen door when the UNLEASHED PIT BULL  went after it.
The woman, who asked us not to use her name, says she witnessed the attack and sprayed water out of a hose to try and scare the dog away, but it was too late for her older feline.
“I sprayed it and sprayed it until the dog let go of my cat,” she said.
She took pictures of the dog and another pit bull it was roaming with, and shared them with animal control. 
She says the agency gave her some troubling news about what would happen next.
“Just a citation, these dogs can get out again!”
The News Station reached out to Orange City/DeBary animal control. 
They tell us they did issue the owner citations, but to launch a ‘dangerous dog’ investigation, the dog would have to attack another animal.
According to state statute, a dangerous dog has to “more than once severely injured or killed a domestic animal while off the owner’s property.”
If a dog attacks or bites a person, a dangerous dog investigation will begin right away.
“It worries me now that I need to walk with pepper spray, or a stick or a taser, just to walk on our bike trail around here,” the cat owner said.
Animal control says it has no records of other incidents involving the brown dog named Dixie.
But, they’re asking anyone who has first-hand knowledge of any other attacks involving her to give them a call.

CLEARCREEK TWP, WARREN COUNTY OH - MARY MATTHEWS, 49, WAS FOUND DEAD IN HER HOME ON NOV 1 ...AN AUTOPSY WAS PERFORMED STATING THE CAUSE OF DEATH WAS BLOOD LOSS FROM AN ATTACK BY HER RESCUED GREAT DANES


49-year-old Mary Matthews’ body was found Friday in the 7400 block of Waterway Drive in Clearcreek Township.
According to the incident report, an officer was dispatched to the home around 2:30 p.m. for a possible drug overdose.
Dispatch told the officer that the caller was refusing CPR and indicated “she was beyond any help,” the report said.
The officer met Mary’s husband, Dale, and his son in the driveway of the home.
Dale said that his son picked him up from the Warren County Jail on Friday and when they walked into the home they found his wife lying unresponsive on the bathroom floor.
In her report, the officer says she saw a significant about of blood in the laundry room, living room and the bathroom.

According to the officer, the lower half of Mary’s body appeared to have numerous cuts or puncture marks. She was also covered in blood.
In addition, a baseball bat stained with blood was found with a bloody towel next to it.
The officer says she found two large “but thin” GREAT DANES  in an enclosed deck area.

Dale told the officer that one of the Great Danes is “vicious” and has reportedly bit several people, including himself.
He says that he was always able to fend off the dogs but if his wife was alone and they attacked, she would not have been able to defend herself because of her small size.
The Warren County Coroner says it appears Mary was able to get the dogs outside but perhaps she didn’t realize how badly she was injured.
There was also evidence of several clothing changes with blood on them as well as towels which appeared to be Mary’s attempt to clean up the floor or perhaps herself.

According to the incident report, Dale told the officer that Mary would start her day by taking numerous prescriptions and would start drinking as well.  He said she would continue the pattern until she passed out.

The officer says, because of what Dale said about his wife, that Mary may not have been able to judge the severity of her injuries and didn’t call for help.

Coroner Doyle Burke says an autopsy was performed Saturday and toxicology will have to be done “but it’s clear the cause of death is dog attack.”

The Chief Dog Warden of Warren County says Dale released the dogs to the warden on Friday with instructions to euthanize them and they were euthanized over the weekend.

They will be tested by the health department.
Warden Nathan Harper says the dogs were in “fine” condition, with no signs of being starved, abuse, or marks.
Harper says there is a history of dog bites with this owner, but not from dogs involved in this attack.
