DOG BREEDS HAVE DIFFERENT ABILITIES AND INSTINCTS - NO OTHER SPECIES HAS BEEN CHANGED AS MUCH AS MAN HAS CHANGED THE DOG!!!

"TO SAY THAT BEHAVIOR IS ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON HOW A DOG IS MANAGED IS LUDICROUS.  THAT IS LIKE SAYING A CHIHUAHUA WILL GET AS BIG AS A GREAT DANE IF YOU FEED IT ENOUGH."

Comment from Practicalone 2 on the Mauling death of Emako Mendoza in San Diego Dec 24, 2011 -

Dog breeds have different abilities and instincts.  No other species has been changed as much as man has changed the dog.  To say that results and behavior is entirely dependent on how the dog is managed is LUDICROUS.  That's like saying a chihuahua will get as big as a Great Dane if you feed it enough.

PIT BULL PROMOTERS (pbp's) are full of misleading semantics and downright lies.  For example, some say that pit bulls' jaws do not lock.  However, pit bull websites recommend the owners acquire and practice using (!) A BREAK STICK, to use to pry open their dogs' mouths, in case their adoring pit bull "clamps its mouth" on a visitor (dog or human)!

PIT BULL PROMOTERS  say they "love" dogs, but then refuse all sane suggestions at reducing the attrocities that surround the pit bull situation.

PIT BULLS SUFFER HORRENDOUSLY TOO, but all that seems fine with the pbp's.

Pits have been selectively bred for centuries to be very good at  mauling and killing other dogs.  This is also wonderful and fine with the pbp's.  Empirical evidence is that:

*********************************************************

PIT BULLS PRODUCE ENDORPHINS WHILE THEY ARE IN THE MAULING MOOD, SO THAT THEY DO NOT STOP EVEN IF SEVERELY INJURED.

**********************************************************

Watch the Video of the Pit Bull Puppy pulling the bumper off a police car.  He is  "NOT ANGRY or VICIOUS";   The tugging is self-rewarding.

Watch the videos of the pits hanging from their jaws for hours, from a knotted rope....all 4 feet off the ground.  These behaviors feel good to many pits.

Most normal dogs will stop fighting if one dog is down or submits.  This was selectively bred out of the fighting dogs, as that behavior "RUINED A GOOD DOG FIGHT."

Most dogs will bark, rush and retreat, nip and retreat, all in attempts to warn off the "opposers" and try to avoid a fight.  Again, these behaviors "RUINED A GOOD FIGHT".

So many/most pits will not warn before attacking.  Perhaps the poor dog doesn't even know he is going to attack;   THE INSTINCT POPS INTO HIS MIND AND SUDDENLY HE IS TUGGING ON HIS ELDERLY NEIGHBOR !!!

PIT BULL PROMOTERS do say that pits are a strong, determined terrier and need a lot of socialization, and require a firm leader/owner, but then fail to ask:

"WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THAT STRONG, DETERMINED TERRIER ESCAPES AND NO FIRM LEADER/OWNER IS THERE TO GUIDE THAT TERRIER'S INSTINCTS?"

The answer sometimes:  Attacks such as this atrocity happen.  Your pit bull may never attack, but if it does, it probably will not need a reason (other than instinct), it will not give warning first, and it will be  DIFFICULT TO STOP.

YOU TUBE has a 911 call about a Pit Bull Mauling Fatality - TINA MARIE CANTERBURY - who was a pbp until her two adoring PIT BULLS' INSTINCT KICKED IN AND THEY BEGAN TUGGING ON HER, UNTIL SHE DIED

GREAT COMMENTS TO STORIES ON THIS BLOG IN 2011

SPUTNIK SAID:  In a comment to the story about a PIT BULL attacking its owner in Gatineau Canada and nearly   GNAWING  his arm off ---

"""This story makes me really angry!  I think it's time police etc stopped interfering in the consumer rights of people who choose this kind of dog!

Who are you to interfere when the dogs they've chosen attack them?  How DARE you shoot their dogs instead of leaving them to sort it all out themselves?!?  How do you know they'd rather see their dogs dead?  You're yet again denying them consumer choice!

All your interference means is that--once they get out of the hospital we -  - ALL HAVE PAID FOR - -  THEY'LL HAVE TO SPEND THEIR GOOD MONEY TO BUY:

          *** A COUPLE OF NEW KILLER DOGS ***

I just really don't get this.  I think it's a Constitutional right of the fighting-type-dog owner that we don't so-called  HELP THEM  when the dog is attacking them.  They also have a Constitutional right not to receive unasked for medical care that they might later be billed for.

WHEN WILL WE LEARN TO LEAVE THEM AND THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT ALONE, I ASK YOU?!

WHEN THEIR DOGS ARE KILLING THEM....WE SHOULD JUST LEAVE THEM ALONE."""

BEEBEE SAID:  In a comment to the story on A Pit Bull attacking Horses at Fiesta Beach California.......

"Ugh...If I have to hear another idiot Pit Owner say, 'I had no idea it would do that,'  I'll scream!  What is it with Pit Bull Owners?  Every week there is another 10 or so Pit Bull Attacks, and yet these idiots are taken by surprise every single time.  I really don't understand how anybody could be so dense.  I guess we chalk it up to the influence of the Pit Bull Activists who spread misinformation like the "NANNY DOG" myth.  I think it's high time to file a     RACKETEERING  LAWSUIT  against these evil, lying pit peddlers before anyone else is killed."

REPLY FROM DAWN JAMES:  "Beebee, sometimes they are lying outright and sometimes I think it's just that these gullible fools bought into the pit nutter propaganda that pit bulls are no different than any other dog.  That's the beauty of the Ohio Law which states that by definition pit bulls are different  ---

*****THEY ARE ALL POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS BY BIRTH .*****

Anyone who owns a dog that was created for violent purposes should never ever be afforded the luxury of this excuse:

"I'M REALLY SORRY....I HAD NO INKLING MY DOG COULD BE THAT VIOLENT."

MONCKS CORNER SC - PIT BULL DRAMA OF THE MONTH - BUT THE PIT BULL DRAMA OF THE YEAR AND THE YEAR BEFORE IS EVEN BETTER !!!!!

********** PIT BULL DRAMAS FOR THE YEAR 2011 **********

On December 13, 2011, Toby, the 3-year-old Pit Bull and best friend of an autistic girl was stolen, brutally beaten with something like a bat, and then his body was dumped on December 18  in their front yard.

While not trained as a certified therapy dog- the cost was too high for the family - Toby was the little girl's beloved companion........READ MORE. ...  HERE

SOUNDS AND READS LIKE A GREAT STORY !!!!~ DOESN'T IT???? BUT WAIT !!!!!

 ****** LOOK AT THIS ********

December 23, 2011 - The investigation into the death of a Pit Bull owned by the family of a 9-year-old autistic child, reveals that it was not beaten as previously thought.

A necropsy performed by a veterinarian revealed that Toby had not been viciously beaten.  No signs of repeated trauma were found.  The forensic examination indicated that it had injuries consistent with being hit by a vehicle.

The sheriff's office is waiting to interview some witnesses who were reported to have seen someone attempting to abduct the dog from the owner's yard.  These witnesses are reported to be out of state right now.

The dog's owner, 40-year-old Kelly Nolan and and acquaintance, 32-year-old Stacey Lamont Altman were arrested and taken into custody on unrelated charges on Dec 23, and taken to Hill-Finklea Detention Center.
Kelly Nolan (provided)

Stacey Altman (provided)
They were both charged with Receiving Stolen Goods and Obtaining Property Under False Pretenses.  Both were released the next day.  Altman was found to be in possession of a 1/2 gram of cocaine and was also charged with possession of it.

A reward had been offered by Pet Helpers for information leading to the capture of Toby's killer, according to the Executive Director, Kevin Ryan,  anyone who has donated towards that reward can either receive a refund, redesignate their donation, or leave it as part of a permanent reward fund for another abuse case.

UPDATE VIDEO: AURORA

Sgt. Cassidee Carlson of Aurora Police says a woman was attacked by 2 dogs, a black one and a brown one, shortly before 6 am on Friday morning.  Then a second woman was injured when the 2 dogs attacked her small dog and she tried to stop them.  Both women are in the hospital and a man received minor injuries when he tried to help the second woman.  Animal Control and officers are going to houses in the area where restricted dog breeds are registered.  A comment in this story from someone in the area states Police are looking for 2 PIT BULLS - one black and one brindle.

Aurora bans people from having pit bulls except if they're being used as service dogs.  People who had the dogs before the ban was passed are allowed to keep them but must get a special license.  Officers are checking on homes where such dogs have been registered.

Maricca Glaab said that she ran out and saw Haley way down the road and could see blood all over her.  She ran to her and knew they could not outrun those dogs, so she saw a truck and told her to climb in the back.  But she said she couldn't because of her leg.  So she got in the back of the truck and began pulling her up.

Haley's uncle finally ran out and scared the dogs away.  They say they had never seen the dogs before.  Maricca Glaab says she thinks they should be put down, just for the safety of  her children and everyone else's children.

PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP MI - 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE AND ATTACKED A WOMAN WALKING HER 2 CHIHUAHUAS ON LEASHES - HER BELOVED PETS ARE NOW DEAD AND SHE'S HOSPITALIZED !!!

Wed - Dec 28, 2011 - It’s something neighbors on Maple Road in Pittsfield Township won’t soon forget: a bloody attack from a pair of American bulldogs on a woman walking her two small dogs.
It happened Tuesday afternoon.

Neighbors said the woman had just left her house with her two beloved Chihuahuas for a walk.

Both small dogs were on leashes. Right next door, several American bulldogs are behind a chain link fence.

The owner of those bulldogs didn’t want to give his name to Local 4 but says he went to the store for just a few minutes and has no idea how his dogs got loose.

He says the Chihuahuas bark at his dogs, but nothing like what happened next has ever happened before.

The American bulldogs somehow got through the fence, attacked the smaller dogs, killing them both. The woman also suffered sever bites to her face, likely trying to break up the deadly confrontation.

Neighbor Lloyd Quicksey said police were called and by the time he ran down the street, he could see the woman on a stretcher in “excruciating pain.”

That woman remains in the hospital today. Her family did not want to speak with Local 4.

The owner of the American bulldogs says he feels terrible about what happened.

Pittsfield Township police said the incident remains under investigation and that owner could face criminal charges of harboring vicious animals.

The bulldogs were euthanized this morning.

REIDSVILLE NC - PIT BULL ATTACKED A MAN HOLDING HIS TERRIER AS HE WAS GETTING OUT OF HIS CAR - HE FINALLY HAD TO KILL IT !!!

Wed - Dec 28,2011 - A man and his dog were hospitalized after a pit bull attacked them last Wednesday morning at the Woodland Heights apartments on Lawndale Drive.

The victim was getting out of his vehicle with his terrier when a loose pit bull attacked the dog, which he was holding, according to Lieutenant S.C. Coates of the Reidsville Police Department.

Coates said the man tried to separate the dogs when the pit bull lacerated the man’s hand. The man’s wife heard the commotion and came out of her apartment trying to help and she was also bitten.

Out of self-defense, the man had to kill the pit bull.

The man was taken to Annie Penn Hospital for treatment. The wife was not taken to the hospital for her injuries. The terrier was also taken to Reidsville Veterinary Hospital to be checked and treated for its injuries.

The pit bull was a small tan dog wearing a red collar without a tag and no microchip.

The incident is under investigation but Coates believes charges will be filed against the dog’s owner.

The dog’s owner is unknown at this time and police are seeking information about ownership.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Reidsville Police Department at 349-1011 or Crime stoppers at 349-9683.

SAN DIEGO CA - 4TH PIT BULL MAULING DEATH IN DECEMBER - 76-YEAR-OLD EMAKO MENDOZA DIED ON CHRISTMAS EVE FROM HER INJURIES IN AN ATTACK IN JUNE BY 2 PIT BULLS - LEG AMPUTATED - ARM AMPUTATED !!!!!!!!

Tues - Dec - 27, 2011 - Emako Mendoza, was hospitalized in critical condition following the June 18 mauling in the 5800 block of Alleghany Street, according to San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali. The attack happened near Potomac Street in the Paradise Hills neighborhood.
Fatal pit bull injury victim
PIT BULL BREEDERS MADE THIS BEAUTIFUL WOMAN SUFFER BEYOND WHAT ANY HUMAN BEING SHOULD EVER HAVE TO SUFFER- ALL PIT BULL BACKYARD BREEDERS AND THEIR "ENABLERS" ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS !!!

EMAKI AND HER HUSBAND WERE MARRIED OVER 53 YEARS - THEY MET IN JAPAN IN 1954 WHEN HE WAS IN THE NAVY - THEY WENT DANCING ON THEIR FIRST DATE -

 ****** "SHE JUST USED TO LOVE TO GO DANCING" ********


Her funeral and visitation will be held in Bonita in January.

Mendoza's husband James was sleeping on the Saturday morning when the attack happened. He said he was awakened by a knock on the door.

"What woke me up were the girls next door," he said. "They come knocking on the door, they said that their dogs had gotten loose and they thought they were in my backyard."

The dogs, who belonged to a neighbor, had entered Mendoza's yard through a hole in a fence, Cali said.

One of the two pit bulls that attacked her is seen here The dogs were put down after the attack
James said he found his wife in the backyard.

"My wife was lying here," he said. "She was still screaming, you know, and she was all bloodied up. I took her and I covered her up the best I could and I ran in there and called 911."

Mendoza sustained several lacerations to her body and injuries to her arms and legs, Cali said. She was taken by ambulance to Scripps Mercy Hospital in critical condition.

"She's not doing too good," Mendoza's husband told The San Diego Union-Tribune on Saturday night. He called her condition "very critical."

Doctors amputated one of the woman's legs and her left arm, which was damaged from her hand to her elbow, the newspaper reported.

Neighbours Alba Cornelio, 39, and her daughter, Carla Cornelio, 20 were arrested about a week and a half after the mauling and could now face new charges following her death

Neighbours Alba Cornelio, 39, and her daughter, Carla Cornelio, 20 were arrested about a week and a half after the mauling and could now face new charges following her death


Alba Cornelio surrendered the dogs to the county Animal Control officers, and they were euthanized, police said.

The Mendozas have lived in the home for 42 years, and their neighbor had been raising pit bulls for about 10 years. Mendoza's husband said the dogs made a racket but had not caused problems until now.

Though both dogs were euthanized, Mendoza's husband said the owner must pay as well.

"I hope these people have plenty of money because I am going to sue them for plenty," he said.

Alba Medina Cornelio, 39, and Carla Ramirez Cornelio, 19, pleaded not guilty at their Superior Court arraignment.

Alba Cornelio remains in custody on $350,000 bail and an immigration hold, although defense attorney Donovan Dunnion said the defendant has lived in the United States for 19 years.

Carla Cornelio is free on bail.

Both are charged with felony counts of having a mischievous animal that causes serious bodily injury and six misdemeanor code violations, including failing to protect the public from a dog and owning a dangerous dog. They each face more than three years in prison if convicted.

According to testimony at a preliminary hearing, Emako Mendoza was attacked in her fenced-in yard right after she went outside to get the morning paper.

Witnesses testified that the pit bulls got through a gap in the fence, ripping a hole near a metal gate that the victim had installed to bridge the gap in the fence between the two properties.

Prosecutor Makenzie Harvey alleged the defendants knew they had dangerous dogs because the same two pit bulls escaped from their yard on Christmas Day 2010 and attacked a man who was walking his puppy. The puppy suffered a broken jaw and the man was bitten.

After the latest attack, Alba Cornelio allowed animal service officers to euthanize her two pit bulls and their 3-week-old puppies.

Dunnion argued that the dogs never hurt another human being before the attack on Mendoza.

The attorney said the pit bulls were family dogs and were running from a swarm of bees when they attacked Mendoza, but Harvey said there was no evidence the dogs were stung by bees.

WILMETTE IL - A PIT BULL WAS 1 OF 2 DOGS THAT PUSHED PASSED ITS OWNER AND GOT OUT A BACK DOOR - THEN ESCAPED AN OPEN GATE TO MAUL A BOY WALKING ON THE STREET CHRISTMAS EVE - IT HAD BITTEN A HUMAN BEFORE !!!

Tues -  Dec 27, 2011 - A Wilmette dog owner was cited after her pit bull attacked a 13-year-old boy on Christmas Eve.

The boy was taken to Evanston Hospital for treatment of injuries to his left triceps, upper right torso, both legs and buttocks, according to a police report. The injuries were not life-threatening, but resulted in lacerations, punctures and bruises to his body and led doctors to X-ray his chest for possible broken ribs.

He was walking in the 1000 block of Hunter Road at 10:20 a.m. Dec. 24 when he saw Dante, a pit bull, approaching him at a speed between running and walking, the report states. When the boy turned and walked faster, the dog began biting him, the report states.

The dog’s owner ran after the animal and tried to cover the boy with her body to protect him, according to the report.

The woman told police she was leaving through the rear door of her home in the 1000 block of Cherokee Road when her two dogs pushed past her and left the yard through an open gate.

She was issued two local ordinance citations — for dog biting person and dog at large. The pit bull had previously bitten a human, according to the report. Illinois state law requires a dog that has bitten a human to be confined for 10 days for clinical observation by a veterinarian.

The dog was scheduled to be euthanized on Tuesday, according to the police report. The dog’s owner was not available for immediate comment.

LABADIE MO -FRANKLIN COUNTY MO - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A 10-YEAR-OLD BOY - THE SAME DOG ATTACKED ANOTHER BOY IN OCTOBER BREAKING HIS ARM AND BITING HIM MULTIPLE TIMES !!!

UPDATE:  Thur - Dec 29, 2011 - For the second time, a dog in Franklin County is accused of attacking a child.  The latest incident happened over the weekend when family members said a 10-year-old was viciously attacked by a pit bull.

Police believe the dog was a mixed breed and said its owner could be in trouble.

A run in with a dog left a boy needing surgery on both arms and needing  more than 50 stitches.

Franklin County Sheriff's deputies say the attack happened outside a Labadie home on Friday afternoon.

10 and 12 year old cousins were at the home helping family members work on the place.  Police said the boys walked outside when they noticed what seemed to be a friendly dog.  The boys turned to go back inside when the dog juped on the 10 year old from behind when he was knocked on the ground.

Family members said it was a PIT BULL that attacked the child, and said the dog was trying to bite the boys neck.  The dog was able to get both the child's arms as he fought to cover his face while the dog kept biting.  The bleeding victim told his parents the dog was so strong, he threw him into a creek, still not letting go until being forced off.

In a statement the family said, no doubt in our minds the dog was trying to kill him.

"The dog has since been quarantined and that's usually for 14 days and I guess once that's finished the disposition will be decided." said Sheriff Gary Toelke.

"I'm not sure what breed it is but it is a mix and I think it had been involved with a bite before with another child so whatever breed it is it definitely needs to be secured and pinned up," said Toelke.

At least for now the family has decided against pressing charges but police said the case could still be sent to the prosecutor to determine what if any charges will be filed.

Tues - Dec 27, 2011 - As reported by the Franklin County sheriffs Department , On December 23, 2011 at approximately 12:55 pm; the Franklin County Sheriff's Office responded to Mercy Hospital's Emergency Room in Washington in regards to an animal bite. Upon arrival, Deputies learned that a 10 year white male was helping his father who was working on a residence on Springhill Road in Labadie, Missouri. While at this residence, the resident's dog attacked the boy causing serious injuries to both of his arms and shoulders. He was bitten multiple times by a "mix breed" dog.

Upon responding to the location of the attack, Deputies learned this same dog was responsible for attacking a 14 year old male resident on October 5, 2011. In that incident, the juvenile suffered a broken arm and multiple punctures to his skin.

On this date the dog was seized by Deputies and secured at a local veterinarian's office for evaluation. The investigation will be submitted to the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office for review. The condition of the victim is unknown at this time.

OMAHA NE - 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS NAMED "BARLEY AND HOPS" GOT OUT A KITCHEN DOOR AND A GARAGE DOOR - BOTH "ACCIDENTLY" LEFT OPEN - AND BIT DOWN ON A BELOVED PET BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER !!!

PIT NUTTER SPEAK:  "HE KILLED HIS OWN DOG  BY TRYING TO RESCUE IT FROM THE BULLDOGS. THE ATTACK WAS BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION BECAUSE ONLY ONE OF MY BULLDOGS KILLED HIS DOG...THE OTHER JUST RAN AROUND THEM BARKING."

Mon - Dec 26, 2011 -  A beloved  12-year-old pet Schnauzer  named "Dagmar"  was being walked on a leash on a routine walk. The small dog died of injuries suffered in an attack by a larger dog in a quiet southwest Omaha neighborhood.

Mark Neely was walking his dog as they passed a house a block over from his home. Neely said he heard approaching dog steps, “And there’s this big dog right there. It sniffed her real quick and then bit right in. Dagmar started screaming and squealing.”

The Nebraska Humane Society impounded two American Bulldogs owned by Kyle Kruse. Kruse said, “It’s a horrible accident and I can’t say anything to that family to make it right. I apologize.”

Though not present during attack Kruse said a roommate moving out accidentally left open both the inside kitchen door and the garage door. So the dogs named Barley and Hops bolted when the Schnauzer and its owner walked by.

However Kruse claims the attack was blown out of proportion and only one of his dogs was involved while the other just ran around barking.

The Nebraska Humane Society’s Mark Langan said the victim couldn't identify which dog attacked so both were seized and the court will sort it out.

The girlfriend of the owner of the bulldogs Amanda Limas said she witnessed the incident and she contends the Schnauzer owner killed his own dog trying to rescue it from the bulldog. Limas said, “I’m assuming that from the guy running and landing straight on top of the dog on the concrete.”

However Humane Society investigators have reviewed vet reports on the Schnauzer. Langan said, “This dog died of injuries inflicted by one or two other larger dogs based on the bites the punctures and the broken ribs."

The owner of the bulldogs has been cited for harboring dangerous dogs and his former roommate ticketed because he was home when they got out.

The bulldog owner said his insurance will cover the $4,000 in vet bills on the Schnauzer but he will fight in court to save the dogs from being put down.

SUTERSVILLE BOROUGH - WESTMORELAND COUNTY PA - A WOMAN WAS ATTACKED BY HER 2 DOGS, A PIT BULL AND A SHEPHERD, IN HER BACKYARD WHILE TRYING TO BREAK UP A FIGHT

UPDATE:  Wed - Dec 28, 2011 -  SUTERSVILLE, Pa. -- A Sutersville, Westmoreland County, woman was attacked by her own dogs while trying to break up a fight between the two late Monday night.

One of the dogs involved in the fight is a pit bull, and the other is part German shepherd, authorities said. Channel 11 News learned one dog ran to the fence where someone was walking their pet. That's when the fight broke out between the woman’s two dogs.

PORT ST. LUCIE FL - "SOMEHOW" THE NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL GOT LOOSE AND ATTACKED A 65-YEAR-OLD MAN AS HE WAS GETTING THE MAIL - JUMPING ON HIM AND KNOCKING HIM DOWN AND MAULING HIM

THE VICTIM  ENDURED 5 HOURS  OF SURGERY- WILL HAVE AN EXTENDED HOSPITAL STAY AND A LIFE-ALTERING EXPERIENCE-  THE DOG HAD NEVER BITTEN ANYONE
BEFORE- IT WAS  ALWAYS ON A LEASH AND BEHIND A FENCE !!!!!!!

Mon - December 26, 2011 - A Port St. Lucie man is recovering after being mauled by a pit bull. Catherine Farro wasn't there to see the pit bull's attack on her husband but she has the pictures of the aftermath.

The pictures show 65-year-old Arthur Farro lying bandaged and bruised in his hospital bed after spending more than five hours in surgery.

"He had been bitten on both hands, forearms, back of his left leg, he also has bite marks on both feet, abrasions on his knees back, behind his legs," Farro told CBS 12.

Their neighbor across the street owns the pit bull that put Farro in the hospital. Catherine Farro says they've never had problems with the dog in the past as it was usually on a leash and behind a gate. But Friday before Christmas that changed, when somehow, the dog got loose.

Farro was outside getting the mail for his neighbor. He walked across the street and when he got to the driveway that's when the victim's son says the attack happened. Kevin Farro says the dog jumped on his father, unprovoked, and knocked him to the ground.

******************************
During the struggle, he says bystanders tried to pry the dog off him, even stabbing the dog several times. Ultimately, it was another neighbor who shot and killed it and Farro was rushed to the hospital where he is recovering.

"It's exhausting, it's awful an entire family has to spend Christmas in the ICU because of someone elses carelessness," said Kevin Farro.

******************************

Still, despite a traumatic past 24 hours Farro says there's a lot to be grateful for.

"Hugely thankful, blessed beyond belief that he's alive and moving," said Kevin Farro.

He hopes this situation will make pit bull owners keep a closer eye on their animals so something like this doesnt happen again.

"Be aware that this happens for no reason and be careful if you are near that type of dog," said Kevin.

There is no word yet on how long the recovery process may be for Farro, as doctors are still evaluating him.

WAGGA NEW SOUTH WALES AU - 2 LONG-HAIRED STAGHOUNDS ATTACKED 4 RESIDENTS - ONE DOG WAS SHOT AND ONE WAS FINALLY CAPTURED !!!

Sunday - December 25, 2011 - FOUR Wagga residents have spent their Christmas weekend in hospital after being attacked by two long-haired staghounds in Docker Street on Saturday morning.


INTERNET PICTURE

The two dogs wreaked havoc along Docker Street for more than 15 minutes before police arrived at the scene where one dog was destroyed and the other taken away by council rangers.

A 37-year-old man was reportedly walking his small Staffordshire Bull Terrier (staffie) near Wagga Base Hospital about 6.45am when the two dogs first approached.

The staghounds are believed to have launched themselves at the man and his dog, brutally injuring him before a 28-year-old female motorist noticed his struggle and stopped to help.

However, as she tried to calm the attack, which had left the man with cuts to his left eye, forearms and hands, as well as a deep puncture to his right hand, the dogs are believed to have turned on her and inflicted significant lacerations to both her arms.

Grabbing the staffie, which had also been badly beaten up in the attack, the pair sought refuge in the woman’s car and called the police.

While police were making their way to the scene, a 59-year-old woman at the other end of Docker Street was attacked by the same two dogs just before 7am.

As the dogs mauled the woman, inflicting deep lacerations to her elbows, left wrist and right thigh, her 37-year-old son is believed to have come to her rescue.

But once again, as he attempted to end the attack, the dogs turned on him, leaving him with puncture wounds to his forearms.

Police destroyed one dog at the scene, while the other was taken away by a Wagga City Council ranger.

All four victims were taken to hospital by ambulance and treated for severe lacerations.

The 59-year-old woman, who received the most serious injuries to her arms, was preparing to be transferred from Wagga Base Hospital to Canberra for specialist treatment.

Inspector Jeff Barr said that police have found the dog’s owners and they will be investigating the incident which could have ended fatally.

He said that anyone who owns a pet, especially a dog, needs to be aware of their whereabouts at all times, and where necessary, take extra precautions to ensure the dogs are not a threat to other people – whether it be walking the dog on a lead or fitting it with a muzzle.

“They have a responsibility to ensure the dogs are secured at all times and are not roaming the streets,” he said

“A focus of the investigation will be to assert if there were any breaches of the animal companion act.”

EDGECUMBE BAY OF PLENTY NZ - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL ATTACKED A 15-MONTH-OLD BOY IN THE FACE AND STOMACH - HIS FAMILY SAYS HE IS LUCKY TO BE ALIVE !!!

Sunday - December 25, 2011 -  A 15-month-old boy was savaged by a Pit bull  as he wandered into the dog's yard to play with a Christmas present he had received hours earlier.

The vicious Christmas Day mauling of Ozyris Beeching - whose family say he is lucky to be alive - came after the local council had been warned several times about the dog's temperament, his distraught mother told the Herald yesterday.

Tracy Beeching said her family were getting ready to drive a few blocks across Edgecumbe in the Bay of Plenty for a Christmas breakfast with her brother's family when little Ozyris wandered next door with his new toy lawnmower.

He entered the front yard shortly before 10.30am and came within reach of the tethered pitbull, which attacked the infant, biting him on his face and stomach.

The dog's 39-year-old owner ran after the dog and was bitten on the arm as he tried to intervene.

A neighbour living across the street told how he thought the dog was playing with the boy until he realised what was happening.

"We thought the dog was just playing ... and the next minute you just saw the bloody dog pick the baby up and toss it in the air," he said.

"It was terrible ... I couldn't get over there and help because I'm on crutches."

A visiting family member of the owner said she was wrapping presents in the house with her little brother when she heard the owner yelling outside.

"I heard him going 'no, no, no', and speaking with a rough tone, and I went outside to see him holding the dog, and the baby was only about a metre away," she said.

"I grabbed the baby, brought him into my car and just started screaming, 'Whose is this baby, whose is this baby?'."

She said Ozyris was covered in blood and bleeding profusely, with a gaping wound above one eye.

She tried to phone an ambulance while calming the boy but had to ask a neighbour take her phone.

Ms Beeching said the tragedy unfolded in a matter of minutes.

"He was just inside and then I spun around and said, 'Where's my baby?' He wasn't in his sandpit, and then my neighbour came running over saying my son had been attacked," she said.

"I knew straight away what had happened. I ran over and heard him screaming, she had him in the car ... I grabbed him and we went straight to town."

Her son was left "ripped up" after the attack, she said.

He was rushed to Whakatane Hospital, where he received several stitches to his face.

Patches of dried blood and bite marks across his stomach were still visible yesterday afternoon.

The incident sparked a tense confrontation between the two neighbouring families - one person reportedly brandishing a knife - and emotions were still running high as family members shouted abuse over the fence at each other when the Herald arrived.

Both families said an attempt was made to immediately kill the dog, which had been brought inside.

A relative of the owner said: "I think they wanted to kill the dog there and then, which was understandable, but they didn't because it would have made it all so much more horrific."

Ms Beeching said one pitbull owned by the neighbours had already been ordered to be destroyed for aggressive behaviour.

The dog responsible for yesterday's attack - which had also been complained about several times for barking and rushing at neighbours and posties - was also now likely to be put down.

"We've rung about it so many times now. I wanted that dog put down months ago," Ms Beeching said.

"We have to cross the road and check the yard every time we walk down the street, and each time I've said, 'Oh my God, that dog's going to get someone one day.' I just wasn't expecting it would be my son."

The dog owner's partner, who declined to give her name for fear of retaliation, admitted the family were still paying council fines from previous attacks.

She was angrily ordered off Ms Beeching's property as she tried to check on the baby during the Herald's visit. "I'm just so glad the baby's all right," the woman said  later.

She accepted the likely fate of her partner's dog. "He just has to be put down."

The dog's owner was being interviewed in hospital by police yesterday but it could not be ascertained whether he will face charges.

Whakatane District Council could also not be reached for comment.
