CULLMAN AL - THE HARRIS FAMILY RECALLS HOW A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL ATTACKED THEIR DAUGHTER LAST CHRISTMAS EVE RIPPING HER FACE - BREAKING HER ARM - MULTIPLE BITES ON HER BODY

THERE WAS NO STORY IN THE CULLMAN TIMES ABOUT THIS PIT BULL ATTACK. THERE WAS NO COVERAGE BY ANY FORM OF MEDIA ABOUT THIS HORRIFIC ATTACK AND THE VICTIM'S LIFEFLIGHT TO CHILDREN'S IN BIRMINGHAM.  IF THERE WAS A SHARK ATTACK IN GULF SHORES TOMORROW, OUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER WOULD COVER IT "AD NAUSEAM ".  BUT THERE'S BEEN 4 HUMAN BEINGS KILLED BY PIT BULLS JUST IN NOVEMBER IN THE U.S.  THIS WILL NOT BE FOUND ANYWHERE IN OUR LOCAL MEDIA.

Kimberly Harris says her daughter is healing well after undergoing another surgery this past month at Children's in Birmingham to help her overcome scars from wounds she suffered in a  horrific PIT BULL ATTACK  on Christmas Eve 2012.  A few weeks before the attack her husband was bitten by the pit bull and the owner said she would get rid of the dog.  So for 2 weeks she and her family did not see or hear the dog. On that Christmas Eve Kimberly Harris recalls that she and her daughter had just got home when a neighbor called her daughter to tell her to come over so they could exchange presents. Her daughter went over to the neighbors and when she was coming back home, the dog came out of nowhere and attacked her from behind.....


"FIRST IT GOT HER IN THE FACE......THE OWNER HEARD THE ATTACK AND CAME TO HER AID.  SHE JUMPED ON HER PIT AND HELD IT AND TOLD MY DAUGHTER TO RUN.  BUT AS SOON AS SHE RAN THE PIT BULL GOT LOOSE AND ATTACKED HER AGAIN AND BROKE HER ARM AND GOT HER IN THE CHEST AREA, LEFT SIDE, STOMACH AND BACK.  MY NEIGHBOR GOT ON THE DOG THE SECOND TIME AND MY DAUGHTER GOT IN MY CAR AND I RUSHED HER TO THE LOCAL FIRE STATION RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM MY HOUSE.  SHE WAS AIRLIFTED TO CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IN BIRMINGHAM WHERE SHE UNDERWENT 5 HOURS OF SURGERY WITH OVER 300 STITCHES INSIDE AND OUTSIDE HER FACE !!!" 


After they returned home from Birmingham they didn't think about anything too much except their daughter's recovery and the fact that animal control had put the pit bull down.  About 2 months later they got a visit from the neighbors/owners of the pit bull and in classic nutter fashion...........

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

"THE WIFE TOLD US THAT THEY WERE MOVING BECAUSE THEY WERE TIRED OF LOOKING AT OUR DAUGHTER'S FACE BECAUSE IT REMINDED THEM THAT THEIR DOG IS DEAD. THEN THE HUSBAND ASKED US IF WE WERE GOING TO REPLACE THEIR DEAD DOG."

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

The Harrises told the nutters -- NO -- and that they should have to pay for all their medical bills.


"THERE ARE NO LAWS THAT CAN MAKE THEM PAY BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO INSURANCE AND THEY CAN FILE BANKRUPTCY IF YOU SUE AND YOU GET NOTHING.  WE CAN SUE THEM IN A CIVIL OR CRIMINAL SUIT FOR LETTING THEIR DOG RUN LOOSE AND ATTACK A HUMAN.  THEY WERE RENTERS AND THE LANDLORD DIDN'T HAVE INSURANCE.  THE LANDLORD DOESN'T WANT TO OWN UP TO THE FACT THAT SHE KNEW THE BREED OF DOG COULD BE VICIOUS.  WHEN WILL BREEDERS AND OWNERS UNDERSTAND WHAT WE AS VICTIMS GO THROUGH WHEN OUR CHILD OR FAMILY MEMBER OR OUR PETS ARE ATTACKED BY THEIR CHOICE OF VICIOUS DOG?"

A year ago I'd have called bullshit on the exchange with the nutters, because it was impossible to believe people could be that deranged. Now I don't doubt that these evil words were spoken at all. A lot of pit bull fanatics are scarcely even human. They are frightening.

If these people had enough money to keep a pit bull they have enough money to pay the victims. I don't care if it's $20 a week FOR LIFE, they should be made to pay or JAIL.

Added to the OMS Life-Flight Doggie piece....Pitties have now poured at least 316 Americans into Life Flight Helicopters!
