MOUNTAIN HOME AR - A MOTHER IS CHARGED WITH CHILD ENDANGERMENT AFTER HER 3-YEAR-OLD WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL TERRIER



ORIGINAL ARTICLE

Authorities in Baxter county say a 21-year-old woman is charged with misdemeanor child endangerment after an investigation into her 3-year-old son being attacked by a  PIT BULL TERRIER. Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says Ambver Moody was released on $270 bond on Wednesday after she turned herself in.

The toddler was attacked on April 5 and needed emergency surgery at arkansas Children's Hospital for wounds to his head and neck.

Authorities said at the time that Moody had filled out a pet adoption form with the Humane Society and said there were no children in the home. The Humane Society has a policy of not allowing Pit Bulls to be adopted by homes with children.

It isn't clear whether Moody has an attorney.  A hearing is set for June 21.

When I was growing up, my family went to Adopt-a-Pet for a second dog. The lady came out to our house and checked us out before she would consent to let one of her dogs come live with us.

That was one great dog, let me tell you. One of the best friends I've ever had. I still miss him, even though he died more than 30 years ago.

This is how animal adoptions should be done. Check out the home situation first.

Too many of these humane groups are just pushing animals out the door so that they don't look like the bad guys of euthanasia. And this is a big part of the problem. There are some dogs that are just too dangerous to be in a family home. That's probably why they were taken to the shelter in the first place.
