BEERSHEBA ISRAEL - AN AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER ATTACKED A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL ON A SCHOOL PLAYGROUND LEAVING HER WITH SERIOUS WOUNDS - 14-YEAR-OLD OWNER ARRESTED
Paramedics were called around 4:40pm on Saturday to a school playground where a 13-year-old girl had been attacked by an "AMSTAFF" dog. The girl had gone to the playground to call her brother to come home and eat. The dog was being walked by a 14-year-old boy and Beersheba Police called a municipal vet to the home where the dog was and arrested the boy on suspicion of negligence and failure to meet safety guidelines. The girl says the dog just attacked her for no reason....
"I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING AND HE JUST JUMPED ON ME AND STARTED BITING ME AND HURTING MY BACK, NECK , EYE, AND TOOTH. I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO DIE AS IF I WON'T SEE MY FAMILY AGAIN. I WAS SO SCARED. I HOPE THE DOG'S OWNER WILL BE PUNISHED AND IMPRISONED. THESE TYPES OF DOGS SHOULD BE KILLED AROUND THE WORLD. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT I HATE A DOG SO MUCH. I GENERALLY LIKE DOGS BUT NOT DOGS LIKE THESE."
Some 2 weeks ago a 10-year-old boy was injured from another AMSTAFF bite in a forest adjaent to Elad. He was taken to a hospital with wounds to his back and neck.
