MYRTLE MS - A MAN WAS ATTACKED BY 3 PIT BULLS IN HIS HOUSE AS HE WAS LEAVING THE BATHROOM ..."THEY JUMPED ME AND TRIED TO BITE MY NECK"
(WTVA) - A man was treated at a hospital after being attacked by his THREE PIT BULLS.
Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards said the incident happened late Thursday morning at the victim's home on County Road 2 near Myrtle.
The victim, John Blue, said the attack happened when he was leaving the bathroom. He said the dogs jumped on him and tried to bite his neck.
He suffered injuries across his body.
Blue said he and his son raised the dogs together and he is not sure what caused the sudden attack. He said the dogs had played rough with him before, but nothing like this.
All three dogs have been euthanized and are being tested for rabies.https://www.wtva.com/content/news/Sheriff-Dogs-attack-man-near-Myrtle--507471181.html?fbclid=IwAR3KNHwDNklDNGqmFK8hUDfKzLXKlcHvrbFIcrLZMedlcAeONPK8hYdwsv4
FALL RIVER MA - LISA DECOSTA WAS COMING BACK FROM WALKING HER PAPILLON IN THE YARD OF THEIR APARTMENT - SHE WAS HOLDING "ACE" IN HER ARMS WHEN A PIT BULL ATTACKED AND CHEWED HIS LEG OFF, HE MAY LOSE HIS TAIL AND HIS INTESTINES ARE INJURED!!!
(WJAR) — A little dog lost a leg after being attacked by a PIT BULL in Fall River, despite being held in his owner’s arms when he was bitten.
Ace the papillon was back home Thursday after four days at the vet, though one of his hind legs was amputated following the weekend attack on June Street.
“He chewed my dog’s leg off,” Lisa DeCosta told NBC 10 News.
She said Ace will also need his tail amputated and could need help going to the bathroom for the rest of his life.
“It was horrific. It was horrible,” DeCosta said.
DeCosta said she and Ace were coming back from a walk into the yard of their apartment house, when she saw her upstairs neighbor’s dog off leash and picked up Ace under her arm.
But that did not stop the bigger dog.
“Grabbed my dog from behind ... while I was holding him. And I never let go. And he was pulling,” DeCosta said.
“I was horrified, still to this day because of the noise that my dog made. I couldn’t sleep for three nights. The screams that my dog made,” she said.
DeCosta said the pit bull’s owner tried to help separate the dogs, went with her to the vet, and paid some of the bills, which are now over $3,000.
Fall River animal control supervisor Cynthia Berard-Cadima told NBC 10 News that the female pit bull that attacked Ace is now being held in a 10-day quarantine.
The owner could agree to sign the dog over to be put down, the dog could possibly go home with restrictions, or there could be a vicious dog hearing.
“The big thing is people have to be aware and have to keep their dogs on leashes,” DeCosta said.
“You live in apartment houses, the first thing, you should put your dog on a leash,” she added.
Animal control is still working on the case.
Berard-Cadima said a dog owner is typically cited when their dog is off leash, but not when in their own yard.
NBC 10 News was unable to reach the owner of the pit bull for comment.
NEWTON COUNTY GA - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A 6-YEAR-OLD GIRL AS SHE WAS PLAYING IN THE YARD ...THE MEAT GRINDER WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY A NEIGHBOR "AFTER PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO FREE THE CHILD FAILED"
A 6-year-old is out of the hospital, but she’s still unable to walk on her right leg after being mauled by a PIT BULL in Newton County, her mother told AJC.com.
Clarinesha Harris, of Fitzgerald, said she took her children to visit their father at his home off Fieldview Lane in unincorporated Covington when her daughter was attacked by the dog. As they prepared to leave, she said she heard her daughter Candice scream in pain from the next door neighbor’s front lawn, followed by a gunshot.
“When we heard her yelling, my 5-year-old son was already telling his dad that the dog had his sister,” she said. “When we got to her, the neighbor had already shot (the dog) once.”
A pit bull bit Candice’s right leg and was dragging her around Evelyn Rico’s lawn, AJC.com previously reported. Rico’s son, Rico Dean, shot and killed the dog after previous attempts to free the child failed.
“She was bleeding real bad,” Dean previously told Channel 2 Action News. “The dog had the little girl’s leg and was shaking it.”
It’s still unclear who owned the dog, who was not wearing a collar. AJC.com has reached out to the Newton County Sheriff’s Office for more information.
As for Candice, she’s back home in Fitzgerald. Even though moving around is a challenge, Harris said her family is doing what they can. “We’re trying to make it as comfortable as possible for her,” Harris said.
