SAN DIEGO CA - PIT BULL AND BOXER ATTACKS WOMAN WALKING HER DOGS - HEROS COME TO HER AID

SECOND ATTACK IN THE PAST WEEK  BY DOGS IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA

June 24, 2011 - A woman was walking her 3 dogs in  a Grant Hill area neighborhood Friday morning when a Pit Bull and a Boxer escaped from their yard and charged the woman and went after one of her pets, a Shetland sheepdog.  When the woman tried to protect her Sheltie, she was bitten on the face.  Two men driving through the area- Christopher Nevares and James Hernandez -  pulled over to help the woman and they were able to stop the attack.They put the woman and her dogs in their car to protect them and called police. Animal Control was called and the Pit Bull and Boxer were taken to the Animal Shelter.  The woman took her injured Sheltie to a vet. 

Neighbors say the attacking dogs regularly get out but have never been violent before. One neighbor who lives next door to the dogs stated that he can not even let his child come out in the yard to play  because he is afraid of them.  The impounded dogs will undergo a 10-day rabies quarantine.  Following the precautionary observation period, the dogs' owner will have a chance to reclaim them. It will cost roughly $250 to license, vaccinate and release them to the owners.  Otherwise, they will likely be euthanized.

March 22, 1983 is RUBY SMITH'S Angel Day. In Murphy, North Carolina, 89-year-old Ruby was doing something most people do everyday--walking to her mailbox when she was ambushed by her neighbor's 2 pit bulls; she passed away about two hours later due to blood loss. Ruby had been attacked by one of the dogs just three weeks earlier but was able to fight the dog off and was not hurt. Although a formal complaint was not filed, Ruby's husband had phoned the Sheriff and asked him to talk to the dog's owner, but he had not done so yet. The neighbor owned a total of five pit bulls. Ruby's husband suffered a serious heart attack just after his wife's attack and was hospitalized, but survived. What a sad, preventable tragedy for the Smith family. Sleep soundly, Ruby. You have not been forgotten.

June 25, 2011 - A Savannah woman went to Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police headquarters Friday and told detectives the two Pit Bulls who attacked children playing in Treat Park Tuesday were hers. She told police the dogs were family pets who escaped from her car when a child opened a door.  At the time, the dogs were being taken to a relative's house for safekeeping while the woman and her family moved.  They do not live in the neighborhood where the attack occurred. 

The woman says she tried to locate the dogs after they escaped, but she heard gunshots and left the area in fear. 

Javon Roberson's mother says that he is still heavily sedated and "nothing has changed". He remains in critical conditon at Memorial University Medical Center.
