BENNETT CO - A PACK OF BOXER MIXES ATTACKED A 68-YEAR-OLD MAN TAKING HIS LAB FOR THEIR USUAL WALK - HE HAS VERY SERIOUS INJURIES !!!



BILL HAUET, 68,  took his yellow Lab for their usual walk and was attacked by a pack of  4 BOXER MIX DOGS.   Nearly a week later he is still recovering in the hospital from the vicious attack.  The dogs went right for his Lab, Abby, and one bit her and he managed to chase that one away.  He turned around and one got him by the heel and took him down.  Then the other 3 began biting him.

He jumped over a fence to get away but 2 of the dogs followed him and tore into his flesh.  He says the dogs were out for blood and he knew not to let them get to his throat.  Abby, covered in blood, ran for home and alerted Hauet's wife.  When she got to him, he threw his cell phone to her and she called 911.  Firefighters arrived and turned a hose on the dogs to push them away.

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

A FRIEND FOUND HIS JACKET IN THE FIELD IN SHREDS.  "WHEN I SAW THAT, I THOUGHT, HOW HORRIFIC DID THIS ATTACK GET???"




HE HAS 3 LACERATIONS ON HIS FEET DOWN TO THE BONE  WITH DRAIN TUBES, AND THEY CHEWED ON HIS HEEL, AND HE HAS PUNCTURE WOUNDS ON BOTH ARMS AND BOTH LEGS.

    ----HE WANTS ALL 4 DOGS DESTROYED----

Neighbors say the dogs have got loose several times before.  The owner says they escaped by digging a hole under their fence and she knows they will probably never come back home again.....BUT....SHE IS ASKING TO KEEP ONE OF THE DOGS HER FAMILY HAS HAD SINCE HER CHILDREN WERE SMALL !!!!!!?????

BILL HAUET  SAYS HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER HE COULD HAVE FOUGHT THE DOGS OFF IF ABBY HAD NOT GOT HELP FOR HIM.

LISA MOYER was walking her 2 dogs near the mailboxes at her apartment complex when a  PIT BULL  charged them.  It went for her Pomeranian, LOUIE, HER 4-YEAR-OLD PET SHE HAD RESCUED, leaving him dead on the ground.

The owners of the Pit Bull, who live just around the corner, were cited for not having the dog on a leash and not having a city license,  BUT.......

THE PIT BULL WAS NOT QUARANTINED OR SURRENDERED.  NOR WAS IT LABELED DANGEROUS.

Moyer says it could have been a 2-year-old child or a grandmother...."WHEN DOGS BEHAVE THAT BADLY, THEY DON'T DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE.  LAWS ARE TOUGHER IF A DOG ATTACKS A PERSON, BUT OWNERS OF DOGS THAT KILL SHOULD BE CRIMINALLY CITED SO THAT THERE'S A REAL PUNISHMENT.

PLAINVILLE CT - FRIEND'S PIT BULL ATTACKED A 4-YEAR-OLD GIRL CAUSING SERIOUS INJURY - TOWN TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE IN ENFORCING ANIMAL ORDINANCE

A  PIT BULL  mauled a 4-year-old girl on November 15, while she and her mother were visiting a family friend.  Ryan McCarthy, 35, owned 2 Pit Bulls and had left them in the care of his 93-yer-old grandmother at the home on Rosemont Drive.  One of the Pit Bulls, a 2-year-old male, was tied on a leash outside when the grandmother tried to bring the dog inside so she could go to lunch with the woman and her child.

The dog saw the child and charged knocking McCarthy's grandmother to the ground and went for the child. It repeatedly bit and shook the little girl.  Bystanders began screaming for help and the dog finally dropped the child and ran off.  The child was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

The dog ran loose for hours charging at people and then was finally captured and it was euthanized.  McCarthy was charged with not having a current rabies vaccination, having an unlicensed dog, harboring a nuisance dog and allowing a dog to roam.

CAPT. BRIAN MULLINS SAID, "IT WAS UNREASONABLE TO HAVE SUCH AN AGGRESSIVE DOG IN THE CARE OF A 93-YEAR-OLD AND HE WAS HELD RESPONSIBLE."

The incident has prompted police officials to re-emphasize the need for residents to license and vaccinate their dogs and they plan to be more aggressive after something of this nature has happened.

There has been a rise in the number of  PIT BULLS  who are abandoned on town streets and end up in the town's shelter, and an increase in the number of wandering PIT BULLS who have attacked smaller dogs. It is believed they are being released from other towns and people who have dogs in Plainville aren't taking action to keep their dogs secure

     *** WHO INITIALLY SEEMED TO BE THE DOG'S TARGET ***

His father, JOEL GOMEZ,  says the attack stems from a bigger problem of loose dogs in the neighborhood.

"SOONER OR LATER IT'S GOING TO BE A SMALLER CHILD OR IT'S GOING TO BE A GREATER INJURY.  I HAVE CALLED ANIMAL CONTROL MULTIPLE TIMES TO COMPLAIN ABOUT LOOSE ANIMALS TRESPASSING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.  THE LAWS NEED TO BE STRICTER  WE DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANY FATALITIES ON THE STREET."

The dog that attacked Alexander was not taken, but was ordered quarantined outside its home because --- it has an owner, and ------ it is a puppy.  They are hoping to pass an ordinance in the future requiring leashes for pets.

Yorkies killed in their own yard, owner fears for others

A Crosby family is grieving their 2 beloved  pet Yorkies after a devastating attack by their neighbor's  3 PIT BULLS in their own backyard.  The dogs broke through a wooden fence into their yard.  The Nichels say that this isn't the first time the Pit Bulls have brought fear to their lives. They have even seen the Pit Bulls run loose as far as a neighborhood school bus stop and they have cell phone pictures of the Pits in their yard previously.

Laura Nichels says her 3 small dogs didn't stand a chance.  They were brutally murdered - the 2 Yorkies, MAX AND BREEZY, were killed instantly and their Chihuahua is now trying to recover in a body cast. But she thinks they might have saved her children's lives because usually her children are out in the yard playing.   She says a Deputy responded to the incident  and gave her a slip but didn't take away the Pit Bulls.  She is waiting for a follow-up visit from them.  She has been advised to file a dangerous dog petition with a judge.

HOT SPRINGS AR - A PIT BULL ATTACKED DONNY MOORE'S FACE LAST THANKSGIVING - HE WAS UNABLE TO EAT FOR SEVERAL MONTHS !!!

$40,000 MEDICAL BILLS - MULTIPLE SURGERIES - NERVE DAMAGE TO THE LOWER PART OF HIS FACE - JUDGEMENT PROOF PIT NUTTER - HE WAS FORCED TO FILE BANKRUPTCY

Donny Moore, a Springdale florist,  was headed to Hot Springs last November 23, 2011, for Thanksgiving when he saw a small dog that had been run over on Fox Pass Road. When he got out of his car to check on it , he was attacked by a  PIT BULL.  He had severe injuries to his lower face and his mouth was sewn shut for 3 months.

Now after multiple surgeries he is left with nerve damage in the lower part of his face and he still has a lot of dental work to be done.   With no health insurance, he has been unable to pay some $40,000  in medical bills stemming from the attack and has subsequently filed for bankruptcy protection.

TAMPA FL - A NEIGHBOR SHOOTS AT 3 PIT BULLS RUNNING LOOSE AND SURROUNDING A JOGGER - 1 DIED - 1 WOUNDED - 1 GOT AWAY

A neighbor saw  3 PIT BULLS  that evidently had a history of running loose surrounding a woman as she jogged on Ridgebrook Circle in the Keystone Manors neighborhood around 7:30 am Saturday. The neighbor confronted the dogs....WITH A GUN !!!  One had to be put to sleep due to the extent of its injuries, another is having surgery for its injuries, and a third escaped any injuries.

ENTERS ANOTHER PIT NUTTER - LUCIA ADKINS!!!!

*  Our dogs are not aggressive.

*  We've raised them like kids because they were raised with kids.

*  Somebody opened up the gate and let them out.

*  This is happening because of my son who is on probation for a robbery in 2007.

Another neighbor remarks that if he had been outside with his dogs and those Pits came over to attack them, he would have also shot them.

TRANSCONA, WINNIPEG, MB CANADA - NEIGHBOR'S 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS ATTACKED A BELOVED POODLE 2 TIMES - 1ST ATTACK - $6,100 VET BILL - 2ND ATTACK - "KILO" DIED

Kilo
Sandy Chartrand feels the second attack could have been prevented if the dogs had been assessed and deemed dangerous following the first attack last fall.  That first attack cost her more than $6,100 in vet bills to save her 10-year-old Poodle, KILO.    The second attack was October 31 when the same  2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS  from next door weighing about 80 pounds each tore the 12-pound Poodle apart.  Chartrand was also bitten by one of the dogs in the second attack.

Chartrand's ordeal began last November shortly after new neighbours moved into a rental home next door.  Kilo was attacked on chartrand's deck seconds after she let him out, not realizing the neighbour's dogs were in her yard.  The Bulldogs' owner was charged and fined for various offences, including allowing both unlicenced dogs to run at large.  He's been ordered to pay Chartrand $6,100, but he's missed at least 2 court dates and made no payment.

After the first attack, Chartrand and other neighbours lived in fear of the dogs.  On the afternoon of October 31, She drove home and entered her garage with Kilo along for the ride.  She put him on a leash and exited her car and pushed the button to close the garage door and the Bulldogs came running full force.  They were totally focused on him and attacked him again right in my yard.

Because Chartrand was also bit, this time Animal Services was to impound the dogs for 10 days.....BUT....

WHEN THE OFFICER WENT TO THE OWNER'S HOME LATER THAT DAY, THE DOGS WERE GONE.  AFTER AN EXTENSIVE INVESTIGATION THEY WERE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE DOGS !!!!!!!!!!!!

LUBBOCK TX - PIT BULL DRAMA OF THE WEEK - IN WHAT COULD ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A SCENE FROM "CUJO" - PIT BULLS ATTACKED 2 MEN SLEEPING IN A YARD INSIDE A TENT !!!

Richard DeBenedetto and friend Bob Gudas had been remodeling DeBenedetto's home.  Because there was no electricity, they slept in a couple of tents behind the house.  DeBenedetto said around midnight he woke up from his sleep when he heard a couple of dogs.....

        TRYING TO ATTACK HIS TENT !!!

The Pit Bulls were aggressive and vicious and kept trying to bite at his tent but could not get a good grip on it.

"I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCE ANYTHING LIKE THAT BEFORE. I REALLY FEARED FOR MY LIFE."

The dogs kept him in the tent like this for about 10 minutes, then they disappeared. He then made a run for the house to grab a piece of heavy timber to try and chase them off. Gudas was still trapped in his own tent.

He then saw the dogs in the yard next to them behind a wooden picket fence and part of the fence was missing.  He stuck his hand out trying to swat them off.  His hand was injured but he isn't sure if it was from one of the dogs or the timber he was holding.  He says he had so much adrenaline from trying to fight the dogs off, he didn't notice until he looked down and saw blood on his hand and pants. He ran to his car and drove himself to the hospital.

In the meantime, Gudas called LPD from inside his tent.  Three officers arrived at the scene and found Gudas trapped in his tent.  They were able to keep the dogs away from the tent long enough for him to escape. The dogs were biting at the fence that separated them.  They finally broke through the fence and charged at the officers causing one of them to shoot and kill the white Pit Bull.  The brown one ran off but was later retrieved by animal control.

FALLBROOK, SAN DIEGO COUNTY CA - 8 LARGE DOGS AT FIRST DESCRIBED AS "OLDE ENGLISH BULLDOGGES" BUT LATER SAID TO BE AMERICAN BULLDOGS MAULED AND KILLED A 30-YEAR-OLD WOMAN - REMEDIOS ROMERO-SOLARES

Fallbrook woman killed by dogs
                                REMEDIOS ROMERO-SOLARES, 30


VIDEO:  VICTIM NAMED - MARIJUANA PLANTS FOUND GROWING IN A BEDROOM

THE FALLBROOK VILLAGE NEWS IS NOW CALLING THE DOGS AMERICAN BULLDOGS

AUTOPSY PENDING

UPDATED ARTICLE

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office has reported that an autopsy conducted on a 30-year-old Fallbrook woman found dead Sunday evening, Nov. 11, revealed she was killed by dogs on the property. In the report, it states her cause of death as “accidental” and cites “multiple penetrating, mauling, and blunt force injuries.”
Based on evidence at the scene, it appears the single, Hispanic woman, who was house sitting for the owners of the property, may have been trying to break up a fight between some canines now described as “American Bulldogs” when she was fatally injured.
“At the scene, the Medical Examiner thought it looked like she had tried to break up a fight between dogs that were loose on the property when they turned on her,” said Sheriff’s Detective Dan Laibach.
Laibach said there were a total of eight dogs on the property and that the individual who found the victim was able to put six back in cages, but could not catch two of the canines.
“A garden hose was also found (running) near the victim, so it is thought the woman may have been trying to break up a dogfight with the hose,” said Laibach.
Laibach reported that authorities at the scene initially felt it looked like the woman had been bitten in the femoral artery and “bled out.”
“After that, it appears that the dogs chewed on her,” he added.
Authorities previously said that if the woman’s death was attributed to the canines, the case would be turned over to the San Diego County Dept. of Animal Control.
“If the dogs are deemed dangerous, they could be put down,” said Laibach, who confirmed that animal control authorities currently have all eight dogs from the property impounded.
The Department of Animal Control will continue the investigation to determine whether or not any criminal charges will be filed against the homeowners.
The woman’s remains were discovered by a female family member, authorities said, who placed an emergency call that day about 5:15 p.m. after she went to check on the woman’s welfare.....READ MORE HERE........http://villagenews.com/local/medical-examiner-says-fallbrook-woman-killed-by-dogs-rules-death-accidental-canines-now-described-as-american-bulldogs/

SAGINAW MI - 2 AKITAS ATTACKED AND KILLED A BELOVED MALTESE/POODLE MIX - THE DOGS WERE REPEAT OFFENDERS

Saginaw Township dog killed by loose neighborhood dogs, family hoping to raise awareness after loss
From an upstairs window Sara Rucker spotted 2 aggressive dogs darting across her yard.  She ran as fast as she could downstairs to one of her dogs, Lily, safely inside the door.  Then she saw her other dog, Rango, a Maltese/Poodle Mix just outside the door being thrashed and bitten by the 2 AKITAS.

She called 911 and then remembered that a neighbor's 1-year-old baby often sits on a blanket while her mother does her gardening.  Rango died after being rushed to the vet.

She wanted to warn the neighbors about the aggressive dogs.  Within an hour she had heard from other neighbors that the Akitas had attacked another dog in the neighborhood.  A 9-year-old Portuguese water dog being walked by its owner was attacked by the same dogs. It had significant injuries but managed to survive.

The county prosecuted the case against owner Charles Kelly in 2010 but the Akitas were later released back to the owner "WITH STIPULATIONS". Both families believe that the owner did not completely follow court orders handed down during the 2010 case.  This time the owner voluntarily let them be put to sleep.

THE RUCKERS WANT THEIR STORY TOLD TO ENCOURAGE RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP AND TO WARN COMMUNITIES OF THE POSSIBLE DANGERS OF DOGS RUNNING FREE.  THEY BELIEVE THE LAWS ARE WAY TO LAX FOR THESE TYPES OF VIOLATIONS AGAINST PETS AND THEIR FAMILIES. IF THE EARLIER RULING HAD BEEN HANDLED DIFFERENTLY AND COURT ORDERS WERE ENFORCED, RANGO WOULD STILL BE ALIVE !!!"

LAS VEGAS NV - PIT BULLS RUN LOOSE AND ATTACKED ANNETTE DESMET'S BELOVED YORKIE BEING WALKED ON A LEASH - $4,000 + VET BILL



Annette Desmet was walking her 4 1/2-pound Yorkie  SADIE  when suddenly a  PIT BULL appeared right in front of her.  She reached to pick up Sadie and saw another  PIT BULL right behind her. Sadie was grabbed from the back by the dog and Desmet kicked and hit the Pit but it would not let go of her little dog.

A neighbor, Eric Giberson, was coming down to the corner because he had just CHASED THE PITS OUT OF HIS HOME AFTER THEY HAD BROKEN THROUGH THE SCREEN DOOR AND CHASED HIS CHIHUAHUAS THROUGH THE LIVING ROOM.  He  found Desmet covered in blood and Sadie completely mangled.

Sadie is now in intensive care with a broken jaw, broken ribs and a scalped back and other injuries  Annette Desmet is unemployed at this time and is having to pay Sadie's medical bills upfront.  The bills have now exceeded $4,000.  Desmet is thankful that her 1-year-old grandson was not with her on this walk!

PALM BAY FL - A VERY LARGE PIT BULL WENT INTO A WOMAN'S GARAGE AND WOULD NOT COME OUT - IT BITES AN OFFICER AND WAS SHOT AT

A police officer responded to a complaint on November 2 at about 1:15 pm of a dog at a house on Eatonia Street.  An older woman could not get her neighbor's  120-pound  PIT BULL  to leave her garage.  Animal control would not come unless the dog was captive.

Officer Phil Erwin tried to get the dog out while its owner tried to call it out onto the street.  The dog finally lunged at the officer from about 5 feet away and clamped onto his left hand and pulled him to the ground.  The officer had his gun in his other hand and he attempted to maneuver the dog into a position where he could get a clean shot and also tried to twist his hand out of the dog's mouth. He finally took a shot but missed and the dog ran back to its owner who took it home.

The officer was taken to the hospital for treatment and the dog was turned over to animal control to be quarantined.

MACON GA - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A WOMAN AND HER GOLDEN RETRIEVER AS THEY WERE TAKING A WALK

Jenna Myrick, 23,  was walking her 10-month-old Golden Retriever "Peaches"  about a mile from her home on Tuesday when several dogs ran out of a yard and a  PIT BULL latched onto Peaches' neck. She fought the Pit Bull screaming at the top of her lungs and pulling it and striking it to get it to release its grip. The other dogs in the pack were not aggressive. At some point she succeeded in getting the Pit Bull to stop attacking Peaches, but that meant she had to hold on to the dog wrestling with it on the ground.  But she could not hold on to it for very long.

A HERO driving by,  WILLIAM CARROLL, saw the attack as he was on his way home with his brother.  They tried to stop the Pit Bull from attacking Myrick and Peaches, but finally Carroll had to go to his car to retrieve his gun.

"IT WAS WHAT HAD TO HAPPEN.  A HUMAN LIFE WAS IN JEOPARDY."

Myrick told police that Carroll saved her life......

"IT WAS ON OF THE WORST THING I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.  IT WAS TRAUMATIZING."

She has injuries to her hand and finger and Peaches has neck, jaw and leg injuries.  The Pit Bull didn't die immediately but was euthanized later.

Officers were called to a North Memphis home by a mother who said her son was....

       HIGH ON COCAINE AND OUT OF CONTROL !!!!!

She had kicked him out of the house and told him to never come back. When police arrived the son, TERRON SIGGES, was crying and begging officers to talk to his mother.  Police would not do this and then Sigges.......

RELEASED HIS PIT BULL FROM THE BATHROOM AND TOLD THE DOG TO GET THEM.

Officers said the dog attacked them and they could not  get out of the house because Sigges took the door knob off the front door! Police finally escaped and the PIT BULL chased them down the street .....

WHILE SIGGES LAUGHED AT THEM FROM HIS FRONT PORCH.

The wife of the PIT NUTTER says the dog is not violent....

ITS JUST A 5-MONTH OLD PUPPY!!!

But neighbors tell a different story and say the family had 3 PIT BULLS at one time and they tried to attack a nine-year-old girl.  They are relieved to know Sigges is in jail and his dog has been picked up by animal control.

John Tooze, 75,  was walking his 8-year-old Bedlington Terrier Scruff on Heavers Meadow, Selhurst, on Sunday, when it was attacked by a red coloured Mastiff.  The very large dog got him by the neck and Scruff was yelping and squealing rolling his eyes and then he just stopped.

"I KEPT SAYING 'CALL YOUR DOG OFF, CALL YOUR DOG OFF',  BUT THE OWNER JUST KEPT TELLING ME TO BEAT THE DOG. HE COULD ONLY RESTRAIN IT BY TYING ITS HIND LEGS TOGETHER WITH ITS LEASH AND DRAGGING IT AWAY BACKWARDS."

Scruff was rushed to a vet but his injuries were too severe for him to be saved.  His ribs were all broken and his chest cavity was perforated.  The incident has been reported to police, but the owner of the Mastiff, a black male believed to be in his 30's, refused to give his name before leaaving the scene.
