BROCKTON MA - A NEIGHBOR'S 2 PIT BULLS "SOMEHOW" ESCAPED THEIR PROPERTY AND FOUND SOMETHING TO ATTACK...STEFANI PERRI-ANGELO WORKING IN HER BACKYARD


UPDATE:  http://brockton.wickedlocal.com/news/20170814/owner-surrenders-dogs-which-mauled-brockton-woman

BROCKTON (CBS) – Stefani Perri is terribly shaken up after she said she was attacked by her neighbor’s PIT BULLS. She said she was working in her backyard when she heard her neighbor scream.
“Out of nowhere they came flying through the backyard. I didn’t even get a chance to turn around they got me on both legs and took turns biting me,” she said.
Stefani was taken to the hospital with serious injuries to her hand, arm and legs. Some of the wounds are too gruesome to show.
"I have a fractured wrist, 11 stitches.  It went completely through my arm and hand.  They tore my ligaments and I will need plastic surgery," 
No one was home at the house where the dogs live, but you could hear them barking inside. Stefani says these dogs have been violent in the past but not like this.
“We just feel these dogs should be euthanized because they are not pets. They left their property and came over here and attacked,” her husband Glen Angelo said.
Police are investigating, meanwhile Brockton Animal Control remained on scene for most of the day waiting for the dog’s owner to come home. The attack has shaken up Stefani’s neighbors.
Hector Morales has four children. “We have kids and we don’t want anything to happen to our kids,” Morales said.
Stefani says she wants to see these dogs removed for good.
“I love animals but something ain’t right with them that’s not normal behavior for a dog,” Stefani said.
Animal control says they cannot comment on this incident right now as it is under investigation but plan to release a full statement soon.


RIVIERA BEACH FL - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE AND BEGAN ATTACKING A 9-YEAR-OLD GIRL...HER 15-YEAR-OLD COUSIN CAME TO HER AID BY BEATING THE LAND SHARK OFF HER


A quick-thinking teen may have saved her little cousin’s life after a dog attacked them both.
9-year-old Tamaya Jackson has her 15-year-old cousin to thank for possibly saving her life.
The girls claim a PIT BULL named Tiger, now housed at animal care and control, attacked them Thursday night. It happened along Z Terrace in their Riviera Beach neighborhood while they walked near a neighbor’s home.
 “I looked back and my cousin was down on the floor getting bit,” Tyleah said. “He was like mean because it doesn’t seem like he was playing with me,” her 9-year-old cousin Tamaya said.
Now instead of attending the last day of school, both girls are at home tending to their wounds.
Tamaya showed CBS12 the bandage on her arm where she says the dog latched on. Her cousin Tyleah showed CBS12 a wound on her hand that she says is from fighting off the dog.
Tiger’s owner told Animal Care and Control that the dog is very friendly and playful and that the girls were playing in the yard near the dog when it’s tether broke.
Neighbors say the dog is a menace and they don’t want it back in their neighborhood. “He’s vicious. If he bites two kids, what can he do to an elderly person, to anybody,” neighbor Vikkita Stratford-Horne said.
The dog remains at quarantined at Animal Care and Control. The incident remains under investigation.

LITTLE GRAND RAPIDS, FIRST NATION, MANITOBA CANADA - DONNELLY ROSE EAGLESTICK, 23, WAS FATALLY MAULED ON SATURDAY, MAY 13, BY ABOUT 30 DOGS AS SHE WAS WALKING HOME FROM A FRIEND'S HOUSE


A 23-year-old woman found dead on a Manitoba First Nation over the weekend was mauled by dogs, according to her family.
The body of Donnelly Rose Eaglestick was found outside on the ground Saturday morning, surrounded by about 30 DOGS, by workers at the water treatment plant in Little Grand Rapids First Nation — a remote fly-in community 270 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.
​A spokesperson for the RCMP, who are investigating the death of Donnelly Rose Eaglestick, said he was still awaiting the autopsy results. 
But her aunt and uncle, Doris and Roderick Mayham, said they were told following an autopsy that Eaglestick died from injuries suffered during the mauling. 
Doris Mayham, who raised Eaglestick, said she was a loving, caring mother of a five-year-old girl.
The couple suspects Eaglestick was walking home from a friend's house the morning she died. 
"There's no foul play or anything. There's just basically wounds that were inflicted by the dogs," said Roderick Mayham. "Time of death was between 1:30 and 3:30 in the morning. But she had been found, 6:30 in the morning, by people going to work."

He said his niece was a fun, loving person who never held a grudge, and was always happy to help him out by babysitting.
Little Grand Rapids Chief Roy Dunsford told CBC News that people in the area heard barking early Saturday morning.
​"There's people living on the other side of the road, [from] where they found [her] and they say they heard dogs barking, barking, barking at 3 in the morning," he said. "They thought the dogs were barking at a bear."
Dunsford said the community of about 1,000 is struggling with the news.
​"She was a good young woman," he said. "People are really shocked with what's really happened."
​​"I was just crying," he said, adding Eaglestick used to babysit his children.
Community members had planned to light candles and offer prayers Sunday evening, Dunsford said. 
"I can't stop crying," said friend Millie Jasmine Pascal. "I can't believe she's gone ... she was a nice person. Loving and caring."

Eaglestick leaves behind a five-year-old daughter, now an orphan. The girl's father died previously of exposure.

"We need to work together so that every Manitoban feels cared for in the wake of a tragedy," said Klassen.
Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen responded by offering condolences and promising to send additional resources to the remote, fly-in community.
"We stand by willing to offer assistance," Goertzen said.e, people are being asked to keep a close eye on children.
"We have to watch our little ones," Leveque said.
Little Grand Rapids Chief Roy Dunsford said Sunday residents nearby heard dogs barking around 3 a.m. the morning Eaglestick died, but thought the commotion was due to a bear.
Eaglestick's family remembers the young mother as a fun, loving person who never held a grudge.
"I can't believe she's gone ... she was a nice person. Loving and caring," said Eaglestick's friend Millie Jasmine Pascal, on the weekend. "I can't stop crying."
Little Grand Rapids First Nation, home to about 1,000 full-time residents, is a fly-in community located 270 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

BROOKLYN NEW YORK - ANOTHER "RESPONSIBLE PIT BULL OWNER" UNLEASHED HIS LAND SHARKS IN DET. JOSEPH MAYROSE PARK AND THEY ATTEMPTED TO KILL THE FIRST "NORMAL DOG" THEY SAW...THE RESPONSIBLE NUTTER PUNCHED A BYSTANDER IN THE FACE, TOOK HIS PITS AND LEFT THE PARK

South Slope — A four-year-old, 45-pound labradoodle was viciously attacked by FOUR UNLEASHED PIT BULLS  in a South Slope park yesterday morning.
The dog’s owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, says she was walking with her dog toward the park across from the Detective Joseph Mayrose Park by the intersection of Prospect and 6th Avenues Thursday morning at approximately 9am.
She saw a man approach the park with four leashed pit bulls, so she decided to walk her dog on the street instead, she says. After completing their walk, the woman and her dog walked over to the park to throw away a poop bag in a trash can that is approximately three feet into the park.
She says the four pit bulls were unleashed on the other side of the park as she approached the trash can but came charging toward her and her dog. The four pit bulls lunged at her labradoodle.
“All four dogs had their jaws on my dog,” she told BKLYNER of the horrifying incident.
The woman says she began screaming at the pit bulls and tried pushing them and prying them off her dog, getting knocked around, dragged, and almost getting bitten herself during the ten minute altercation. The pit bulls’ owner came over and tried unsuccessfully to tear them away from her dog as well.
Each time they were able to pry one pit bull off her dog, it would immediately come back and bite it again. She says the pit bulls even snapped at and bit each other during the frenzy.
A large group of neighbors gathered to watch but were afraid to intervene, she says. She repeatedly begged them to call 911, which several of them did.
Finally, after the victim pleaded, a bystander retrieved the pit bull’s leashes and tossed them over to her, she says. The owner of the pit bulls was finally able to leash his dogs up and pull them away from the victim’s dog.
One of the pit bulls “looked like he put his face in a puddle of blood,” the victim recalls of the bloody aftermath.She says it took approximately 25 minutes for EMS and the police to arrive, but the pit bulls’ owner did not stick around and wait despite her and bystanders demanding he not leave. He gave the victim a business card, which lists him as a “dog walker” and tried to leave the scene amid the group of bystanders shouting at him to stay.
The man then dropped the pit bulls' leashes, walked over to one male bystander who was telling him to remain on the scene, and punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground, the woman says.  The male then took his pit bulls and left the park. 
The male victim suffered a bloody nose and a cut to his face and was taken to Methodist Hospital, according to a NYPD representative. He is listed in stable condition.
The woman suffered various “scrapes and bruises on my legs, knees, arms, elbows and feet,” she says, while her dog suffered wounds to her chest and paw requiring sutures, as well as an injury to her ear. Both were at home recovering on Friday.
Christopher Chabrier was arrested for assault, menacing, disorderly conduct, and harassment, the NYPD told BKLYNER. This is the 34-year-old’s eighth arrest. His prior arrests were drug-related, according to a police representative.
The victim claims that an arresting officer informed her that the DOH say that Chabrier is up-to-date on his dogs’ vaccinations and paperwork and did not take the dogs away.
Because these four dogs are still in the neighborhood, she’d like to warn the community about them.
“We are so lucky to be alive,” she says. “That could have been my son. So many kids play in that park.”
Some park areas allow dogs to be off leash from the time the park opens until 9am and from 9pm until the park closes, according to the NYC Parks website. The victim says that the park where the incident occurred does not have off leash hours.
BKLYNER reached out to NYC Parks regarding this park’s leash policy and will update this post when we hear back.

ORRVILLE, DALLAS COUNTY AL - A MAN ACCUSED A NEIGHBOR OF STEALING HIS LAND SHARK SO THEY HAD A GUN FIGHT...AND THEN ONE OF THEM FOLLOWED THE OTHER BACK TO HIS HOME AND ONE OF THEM SHOT THE OTHER WITH A SHOTGUN...ANYWAY, I THINK THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NUTTERS!!!


From the West Alabama Newsroom–

A Dallas County man is shot and another is wanted by authorities after an alleged dispute over a dog ends in gunfire Monday.

Authorities say the shooting happened after an Orrville man’s PIT BULL DOG  was taken out of his yard — and he confronted a neighbor about the missing animal.

They say the dispute ended in an exchange of gunfire between the two.

They say 18 year old Jared Tower of Orrville is wanted in the case for shooting Jessie Cater.

“Instead of settling it like men talking, Mr. Tower start firing shots at Mr. Cater and Mr. Cater did return fire and he left the area to go home,” said Sheriff’s Office Investigator Capt. Mike Granthum.

“Mr. Tower followed Mr. Cater back to his residence and that’s when he started opening up fire on Mr. Cater with a shot gun.”

Granthum says anyone with information concerning his whereabouts call the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office at (334) 874-2530 — or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-44-CRIME.





HOKES BLUFF AL - A NEIGHBOR'S "NEWLY ACQUIRED OR RESCUED" BULLMASTIFF EASILY JUMPED OVER A STANDARD SIZE 3 0R 4 FOOT HIGH CHAIN FENCE TO ATTACK 2 TEENAGE GIRLS GETTING OUT OF A CAR AT THEIR HOME...THEY GOT AWAY AND RAN IN THE HOUSE...THE MONSTER FORCED ITS WAY INSIDE THE HOME...4 SHOTS TO KILL IT SO THEY COULD GET TO THE GIRLS!!!

Internet picture - a Bullmastiff is a pit bull/mastiff cross.
A 17-year-old girl was injured Saturday in Hokes Bluff when she was attacked by a BULLMASTIFF  that came over a fence after her and a friend, and pushed its way into a house where they tried to find safety.
Hokes Bluff Police Chief Mitchell Hill said the attack happened about 1:23 p.m. Saturday at a residence on Cypress Bend Circle. The girl who was injured had accompanied a friend to her home. The two 17-year-olds pulled into the driveway and got out of the vehicle and the dog, at a neighboring house, came over a chain link fence and attacked the victim.
When the girls were able to get away from the dog, they got inside the house, Hill said, but as they tried to push the door closed, the dog forced its way inside the house.
“This dog was huge. It weighed more than 100 pounds,” Hill said.
If you look up pictures of this breed, he said, there are images of dogs standing on their back legs with their feet on the shoulders of a grown man, and they are taller than he is.
The girls were able to throw something over the dogs head and got into a bedroom and closed the door, he said. They called 911, but medics responding couldn’t get inside the injured girl because the dog still was in the house.
It came at officers and medics when they tried to come in the house, Hill said. An officer had to shoot the dog to get in to help the girl, and Hill said it took four shots to put the animal down. 
The girl was taken to a local hospital for treatment. She had a bite on the back of one arm and some less serious injuries, Hill said.
Hill said from speaking to the girl’s parents, he understands that she’s OK, though still suffering nightmares.
The dog was inside a “standard” height fence, the chief said, about 3 or 4 feet high. However, he said, the dog was large enough that it came over the fence easily. He said no citations or charges have been brought in connection with the incident.
THE DOG'S OWNER HAD THE ANIMAL ABOUT A WEEK AND A HALF BEFORE THE ATTACK, HILL SAID, AND INDICATED THE DOG WAS A "RESCUE" ANIMAL. 
Personnel with local animal shelters did not believe the dog came from their facilities; without seeing a picture of the dog, they could not be sure that it had not been at one of the shelters at some point in time.
Some people refer to a dog as a “rescue” dog because they believe they’ve rescued it from an unfortunate situation, a shelter official said.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE ENGLAND - A 23-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WITH HER YOUNG DAUGHTER WERE WALKING AT VICAR WATER COUNTRY PARK WHEN THEY WERE FORCED TO ESCAPE INTO THE WATER AFTER "4 BEASTLY DOGS" FOLLOWED THEM AND KILLED THEIR PET DOG

One dog was left dead following the attack at the park in Clipstone and FOUR DOGS  were seized by police.
Dr Steve Collett, of Mansfield, fished at Vicar Water Country Park for the first time on Wednesday.
The 44-year-old described the dogs that were involved in the attack.
He said: “The police were in a boat looking for evidence. They tied all the dogs up on the fence – they were all beastly looking. 
“After the air ambulance had gone the police stayed with them [the dogs] and the van came and took them away. They were all treated very humanely.
“It was quite scary to see. I love dogs but those dogs were mean.”
Another man, who wishes not to be named, was fishing when he heard a woman screaming.
The 52-year-old, of Mansfield, said: “She was waving her hands saying ‘help, help’. Dogs were following her and her daughter. Those dogs had killed her dog.
“It could have been me with my dog. It turns your stomach to be honest.”
The 23-year-old woman who ran into the water to escape the dogs was taken to Kings Mill Hospital with injuries not believed to be life threatening.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: "Officers have recovered a dog that they believe has died as a result of this incident.
"Four dogs have also been seized as part of the police investigation and officers are not looking for any others in connection with the incident. Enquiries are on-going."
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue and East Midlands Ambulance Service were also called to the same reports at the park.
A spokeswoman for EMAS said: "A woman and child were in the water and required emergency assistance.
"We sent our hazardous area response team who have specialist skills and equipment, the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance and an ambulance crew."
The popular country park is run by Newark and Sherwood District Council.
A spokesman for the council said: “We can confirm an incident occurred where a dog was killed in an apparent attack by four other dogs in Vicar Water Country Park this morning and that this matter is in the hands of the police.
"By law, the control of dogs is, at all times, the responsibility of their owners. Vicar Water is normally a safe and peaceful place for visitors and we are sorry to hear the circumstances of this incident.”

BENTON HARBOR MI - ANGELIQUE BELL LOCKED HER KEYS IN HER CAR SO SHE KNOCKED ON A NEIGHBOR'S DOOR TO ASK FOR HELP FROM A MAN WHO STAYS THERE AND WORKS ON CARS...WHEN THE DOOR OPENED 2 PIT BULLS SHOT OUT AND RELENTLESSLY MAULED HER AND THE MAN WHO FINALLY LAID DOWN ON TOP OF HER TO TRY AND SAVE HER

Dog attack leaves BH woman traumatized, unable to work
A Benton Harbor woman needed 70 stitches to repair 27 puncture wounds after TWO PIT BULLDOGS  attacked her July 11 near her house.
“It’s just through God’s grace and mercy that I’m here,” Angelique Bell told Benton Harbor city commissioners Monday.
Because of her injuries, she said her doctor hasn’t given her clearance to return to work, leaving her and her two young children with no income.
Charline Duncan, the dogs’ owner, declined to comment when contacted by phone. Also living at Duncan’s house on Columbus Avenue is Shadrick Shears, according to court documents.
Berrien County Prosecutor Michael Sepic stated in an email that Duncan has been charged with a misdemeanor of having dogs at large. Her pretrial conference is at 8:30 a.m. Thursday. No judge has yet been named to the case.
A show cause hearing about the dogs is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday in civil court before Berrien County Trial Court Judge Dennis Wiley. Sepic stated that the county is petitioning to have the dogs labeled as dangerous and to order them destroyed.
“This has taken a toll on my life,” Bell said after the meeting. “... The nightmares have subsided a little bit. For the first few days, I couldn’t sleep at all. I just kept thinking about what happened.”
The attack occurred at 8:26 a.m. as her mother was preparing to take her to work. She said her mother accidently locked her car keys in the car, so she knocked on the neighbor’s door because she knew that Shears works on cars.
“When he opened the door, (the dogs) shot out past him,” she said.
Bell said that whenever Shears pulled one of the dogs off of her, the other dog would attack.
“They weren’t listening to him,” she said.
Shears finally laid his body over hers and tried to shield her face with his arm. Then, the dogs started attacking him in addition to her, she said.
“He needed stitches all across his back and the back of his arm,” she said.
Her mother, Emma Bell-Kelley, said she saw the attack happen from a distance, but there was nothing she could do.
“My uniform was blue, but it was purple because there was so much blood.” said Bell, a housekeeper at the Silver Beach Hotel in St. Joseph.
According to Bell, it took two doctors working on her for four hours to stitch up all the wounds. She said it was so painful she screamed during most of the process.
She said she starts physical therapy next week to work on her left arm, which had chunks of flesh torn off in the attack and will no longer straighten.
She said she is the fourth person the dogs have attacked, and she wants them to be euthanized.
