VANCOUVER WA - 9-YEAR-OLD BOY MAULED BY 3 PIT BULLS

Thursday, June 2, 2011 - Vancouver Wash - 3 Pit Bulls ran out of a house last Thursday May 26, on East Evergreen near Harney Elementary School and dragged down a boy.  He was bitten several times.  The dogs' owner, Ethan Garret,  came out and pulled the dogs off the boy and was also attacked by his own dog.  2 more Pit Bulls were found inside his house.  None of them were licensed and the 3 dogs that attacked were unspayed females. Garret and the woman living with him may have to pay hefty fines relatd to the incident.

According to the Columbian Newspaper, at least 2 Vancouver City Council members are interested in putting the Pit Bull ban discussion on the table.  Bans on Pit Bulls are not unheard of in Washington State...
