HARRIS COUNTY TX - RESIDENTS OF A NORTHWEST NEIGHBORHOOD ARE BEING TERRORIZED BY PIT BULLS RUNNING LOOSE AND ATTACKING OTHER ANIMALS AND CHASING KIDS

Residents of a Northwest Harris County neighborhood are very concerned about a series of  PIT BULL  attacks that have been happening since November last year.  One resident says she has called animal control several times but by the time they get there the dogs have disappeared.  She says the dogs tear pickets off fences trying to get in people's yards to attack their dogs. Neighbors are afraid to let their kids play outside anymore.  The dogs chased 2 kids after they got off the school bus. One man said the same dogs killed a cat right in front of his 12-year-old daughter in December and it totally terrorized her.

The PITS were running loose Wednesday and animal control was called but they never came and the vicious animals began attacking another dog right on the curb so LOCAL 2 was called and it was caught on video !!!!!  The owners of the mutants were seen out looking for their "SWEET BABIES" after they attacked the other dog and then they replaced some pickets on their fence around the backyard and padlocked the gate.

ANIMAL CONTROL SAYS UNLESS THEY SEE THE DOGS RUNNING LOOSE, THEY HAVE NO LEGAL AUTHORITY TO GO INTO SOMEONE'S HOME TO SEIZE THE ANIMALS.  SO LOCAL 2 SHOWED ANIMAL CONTROL THEIR VIDEO OF THE MUTANTS ATTACKING THE OTHER DOG SO THEY WENT TO THE OWNERS AND CITED THEM FOR NOT HAVING UP-TO-DATE RABIES VACCINATIONS OR PROPER LICENSES.  BUT NEIGHBORS SAY IF THEY SEE THE DOGS LOOSE AGAIN THEY WILL PETITION A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE TO HAVE THE DOGS DECLARED A DANGER TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

GASTON COUNTY NC - A 6-MONTH-OLD PIT BULL MIX BIT A 1-YEAR-OLD BOY AND HIS MOTHER AT AN ANIMAL SHELTER WHILE THEY WERE THINKING ABOUT ADOPTING IT

A 1-year-old boy and his mother were bit by a dog they were thinking about adopting at the Gaston County Animal shelter Wednesday.  Leslie Davis of Mount Holly and her 4 children were in one of the outside cages interacting with the dog when it bit the child.

The shelter's policy is to let the people interested in adopting spend some time with the animals without an Animal Control worker with them in the hopes that will help ................

   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BOOST THE NUMBER OF ADOPTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 6-MONTH-OLD PIT BULL MIX   bit the boy first, then bit his mother's hand as people tried to get the dog to let go of the boy's leg. Both were transported to Gaston Memorial Hospital. Gaston County Animal Control Sgt. James Phil said the dog had not shown any kind of aggression before this incident.  Animal Control will have to determine whether the dog is adoptable for the general public or could be adopted by an animal rescue group.

GALLATIN, SUMNER COUNTY TN - AN AMERICAN BULLDOG BEING PREPPED FOR NEUTERING AND ADOPTION LUNGED OUT AND ATTACKED A WORKER AT THE SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC - THEY HAD TO PRY IT OFF !!!

Tanya Beadles returned to work at the Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance after being bitten by an American bulldog several times on Valentine's Day.

Tanya Beadles, 38, was working her shift on February 14 at Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance, when an  AMERICAN BULLDOG  was brought in by Sumner County Animal Control to be neutered. Sumner Spay Neuter provides low-cost sterilization for cats and dogs and the two are in the same building.  A vet, an animal control officer, an inmate worker, and a college vet tech student were all in the room.  Beadles had her hand on the dog's collar and bent down slightly to help give him his pre-med  and the dog lunged and got her  ON THE CHIN............

"EVERYONE KNEW NOT TO PULL HIM SO THE ACO AND THE VETTECH BOTH.....

            PRIED HIS MOUTH OPEN AND GOT HIM OFF ME."

AND THE DOG DROPPED TO THE FLOOR.  THEY SHOVED AND KICKED IT BUT IT LUNGED FOR HER ONE MORE TIME THIS TIME GETTING ITS TEETH INTO HER SIDE NEAR HER RIB CAGE.  THE INMATE GRABBED A LEASH AND WAS ABLE TO REMOVE IT FROM THE ROOM. IT WAS IMMEDIATELY EUTHANIZED.

Beadles was taken to the hospital and received 20 stitches to the chin and jaw area for 2 separate lacerations.  She has 6 puncture wounds on her side that was left open to drain and a lot of bruising there.  The next day her wounds began to worsen and she went back into the hospital overnight to be treated for infection.

June McMahon, the organization's director says this incident was not a "BITE"  it was an "ATTACK"!!!  SHE THINKS ANIMAL CONTROL SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT THIS DOG WAS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR ADOPTION.  THE DOG HAD BEEN TURNED OVER TO ANIMAL CONTROL AFTER  A HOMEOWNER'S ASSOCIATION'S TOLD THE OWNER THE DOG WAS TOO AGGRESSIVE.

Sumner County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Sean Ryan  says that if an animal shows any kind of aggression they are not adopted out.....

       "IT'S TOO BIG OF A LIABILITY FOR THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE."

Tanya Beadles says that dogs like that should not even be thought of to be put on the adoption floor.  She is glad though, that the attack happened to her because it could have been a child.

MY COMMENT:  WHAT HAPPENS TO AVERAGE ORDINARY PEOPLE GOING ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS IN NEIGHBORHOODS AND THESE DOGS CHOMP DOWN ON THEM.  THEY DON'T HAVE A VET, AN INMATE, AN ACO OR A STUDENT VET TECH WALKING ALONG WITH THEM TO "PRY IT OFF" IF ONE BITES DOWN ON THEM.  AND WHAT ABOUT ALL THESE SMALL PETS THAT ARE BEING WALKED BY THEIR ELDERLY OWNERS AND THESE MONSTERS RIP THEIR LIMBS OFF AND DISEMBOWEL THEM AND THE ELDERLY OWNERS ARE SCREAMING AND TRYING TO GET THE PITS OFF ALL BY THEMSELVES.  IT SEEMS THAT THE VERY PEOPLE WHO ARE MAKING ALL THE DECISIONS SURROUNDING THE DOG PROBLEM ARE THEMSELVES WELL PROTECTED FROM THE HORROR OF IT ALL AND THEY FORCE THESE ANIMALS ON THE UNKNOWING PUBLIC. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.......BY THE WAY...........WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO MS. BEADLES' CHIN IF THERE HAD BEEN NO ONE TO HELP HER AND SHE COULDN'T PULL THE DOG OFF HERSELF???

ALBANY GA - A PIT BULL ESCAPED ITS FENCE AND ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL



UPDATE:  JANILYN SOLOMON IS IN GOOD CONDITION AFTER BEING ATTACKED BY A 90-POUND PIT BULL - 21-YEAR-OLD OWNER IS CHARGED WITH ANIMAL AT LARGE AND NO RABIES TAG.

"ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" SAYS A FATHER OF ANOTHER CHILD ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL IN ALBANY JUST A WEEK BEFORE THIS ATTACK.

A  PIT BULL  escaped from a fence and attacked a 5-year-old girl on Wednesday as she was playing with other children. The incident occurred near 407 Lockett Station Road.  The child has not been identified.  The dog scared the children and they ran and the little girl fell and the dog attacked her head.  She was taken to Putney Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The owner of the Pit Bull has been charged with animal at large and for not having a rabies tag.  The Albany Humane Society seized the dog and placed it in quarantine.

LOUISVILLE KY - NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL LEAPED UP OVER A FENCE AND BIT A 12-YEAR-OLD BOY'S EAR OFF THEN TOOK THE EAR BACK ACROSS ITS YARD !!!!!


Brady Nagel was playing a game in a yard and he says the goal was to touch the fence to score.  He says the  PIT BULL  in the next yard started barking at him and he turned around and the dog leaped up and bit his ear off and took it into its yard. Doctors reattached the ear but it is not taking.

The fence was not as high as the boy was tall !!!!!  Another boy also age 12 says that they were playing a game and the boy was not taunting the dog. So now the owner of the Pit Bull says he is not responsible for the medical bills.  Metro Animal Services has quarantined the dog and said that owners are responsible for injuries caused by their pets, but only a judge can force the owner to pay up.

Brady's mom says she has called 2 lawyers and neither will take the case because the Pit Bull never actually left its property.  She thinks the system is failing them -- THE VICTIMS.

I'M THINKING THAT DOG HAD TO HAVE PUT ITS SNOUT ACROSS THE PROPERTY LINE IN ORDER TO BITE THAT BOY'S EAR.  I DON'T SEE ANYWHERE IN THIS ARTICLE THAT ANYONE SAID THE BOY STUCK HIS HEAD OVER THE PITNUTTER'S PROPERTY LINE.  THIS IS ANOTHER CASE OF A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS DOG BEING PLACE ABOVE HUMAN CHILDREN PLAYING IN A NEIGHBORHOOD.  ARE THE NUTTERS OWNING OR RENTING???  DO THEY HAVE INSURANCE???

NIAGARA, ONTARIO CANADA - POLICE STOP 3 PIT BULLS FROM CONTINUING THEIR TREK DOWN A STREET MAULING A LAB AS THEY WENT - THEN POLICE MAKE THE MARIJUANA GROW OP DISCOVERY !!!!!

Harry at his vet appointment Friday morning with his left front paw in a splint and his hind leg bandaged for a catheter. Photo supplied.

UPDATE:  OWNER IS HOPEFULL THAT HIS BLACK LAB "HARRY"  WILL NOT HAVE TO HAVE HIS PAW AMPUTATED 

Citizens began calling the humane society and then 911 Tuesday afternoon when they saw  3 PIT BULL-LIKE DOGS  wandering the streets.  But the humane society did not arrive soon enough to save a beloved pet being walked by its owner on a leash.  A man was walking his black Lab up York street and did not see what was about to happen.  One of the Pit Bulls began attacking the Lab.  The Lab began screaming and blood went everywhere.  It was feared that the other 2 Pit Bulls would join in and a human would get hurt as well.

A witness tried to beat the Pit off with a snow brush but it didn't help much.  Eventually the Pit let go leaving the poor Lab in serious condition.  A neighbor drove the man and his Lab to the vet and the Pit Bull was captured.  The other 2 Pit Bulls were shot when they turned on officers.

Officers then traced the 3 dogs to a house down the street and realized they had escaped through......

         *******  AN UNLOCKED FRONT DOOR   ********

WHEN THEY TRIED TO ALERT THE OWNER OF THE SITUATION, THEY DISCOVERED A MARIJUANA GROW OPERATION.  THEY SECURED THE PREMISES AND THE MAN WAS ARRESTED.

This is the 3rd time in in less than a week that Niagara Regional Police uncovered a drug operation while investigating another incident.

GEORGETOWN OH - MAN MAULED BY 3 PIT BULLS HE GOT FROM CRAIGSLIST AD

On November 21, 2012, Michael Moxley, 40, was mauled by 3 dogs he had got from someone in an ad on Craigslist about 3 weeks earlier. Moxley's friend says on the Video that they were caring for the  PIT BULLS  and everything seemed fine except the dogs were a little thin. Moxley was near the dog pen when all of a sudden.....

ALL 3 DOGS JUMPED ON TOP OF THEIR DOG HOUSE THEN LEAPED OVER WHAT APPEARS TO BE A 6 FOOT FENCE AND ALL 3 DOGS BEGAN ATTACKING THEIR NEW OWNER.  HE HAD TO BE AIRLIFTED TO UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL.

The Brown County dog warden's office said just before 3:30 on Tuesday afternoon a neighbor heard the attack and came to his aid with a gun and had to shoot two of the dogs to stop the attack.  The neighbor was totally amazed when the bullets did not phase the Pit Bulls.

"THE BULLET DIDN'T EVEN PENETRATE THE SKULL.  IT JUST STAYED UNDERNEATH THE SKIN.  THE OTHER DOG WAS SHOT THROUGH THE RIB CAGE AND THE BULLET WENT CLEAR THROUGH THE DOG AND IT DIDN'T EVEN SLOW HIM DOWN AT ALL."

Officials say it was the worst attack they have ever seen in the county and Moxley is lucky to be alive.

The dogs were rounded up and euthanized.  Investigators were trying to track down the former owners to question them in the case.

RHEA COUNTY TN - ANIMAL SHELTER VOLUNTEER CHARGED WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY

Rhea County authorities searched a home off Back Valley Road Thursday afternoon and what they found gave them reason to charge an animal shelter volunteer, RICHARD ORLOWSKE,  with animal cruelty.

They found 3, 4, and 5 dogs to a pet carrier with feces all in it and no food or water.  Twenty-one dogs were removed from the home and 19 others were taken from outside pens. Some show signs of parvo, mange and malnutrition. There were too many dogs and they were not well cared for.One of the 40 dogs confiscated died Thursday evening.

Investigators said that Orlowske sent friends to the county shelter to adopt dogs only so he could then sell them.  He used Facebook to promote his make-shift shelter called - "SAVE MY TAIL."

Many of the dogs  - HE WAS SELLING - to adoptive families were first rescued by the county shelter.  Orlowske had volunteered there for 5 months before being dismissed for breaking adoption rules.  Sheriff Mike Neal says, "THE LAW STATES THAT YOU HAVE TO KEEP A DOG OR ANIMAL FOR FIVE DAYS.  IN ONE CASE A LADY CAME IN THE NEXT DAY TO PICK UP HER DOG AND IT HAD ALREADY BEEN ALLOWED TO BE ADOPTED OUT."

Orlowske has a group on his side - BRANDI DAWKINS - spokesperson for "Friends of Rhea County Animals".  Dawkins says that Orlowske has done nothing wrong and his arrest was in retaliation against her group for speaking out about how the sheriff runs the shelter.  But she admits she had never visited Orlowske's  MAKE-SHIFT SHELTER!!!!!

MANSFIELD MA - 2012 ENDED WITH QUITE A PIT BULL DRAMA OVER RESCUED "ROCCO" - FUR MOMMIES JUST COULDN'T SPEND ENOUGH MONEY TRAINING OUT HIS GENETICS AND ATTEMPTING TO ADOPT HIM OUT - HE WAS EUTHANIZED

Rocco the pit bull was euthanized at the Mansfield Animal Shelter

After Rocco was found abandoned in a Home Depot parking lot last May, the shelter spent hundreds on training to prepare him for adoption.  Rocco ended up back at the shelter after two efforts to adopt him failed and the decision was made to euthanize him.

William Ross, Mansfield's Town Manager, Police Chief  and Animal Control Officer, said, "We don't like it, but we felt it was a necessity.  We couldn't be sure given the behavior that was observed when the dog might act out that behavior. It was too risky in our view and we felt that in good conscience we could not allow this to happen."

A few upset volunteers called in a dog trainer, a Pit Bull owner herself,  to examine the dog..........
"He doesn't  deserve this.  He had a lot of potential.  He was a very smart boy.  He was not aggressive.  He was a very happy relaxed dog.  Something great could be done with this animal.  They failed him. Any dog would tear up a couch if its bored and not exercized.....and he didn't bite the children touring the shelter, he just "snarled" at them.  This is human error and human ignorance."

The dog trainer as well as a rescue network offered to adopt Rocco and when that was not allowed, a few volunteers just quit the shelter in protest.


NOW HERE'S THE REAL WORLD TEST STORY FROM ONE OF THE FAMILIES THAT ADOPTED ROCCO, THEN HAD TO GIVE HIM  BACK TO THE SHELTER:


A COMMENT FROM THIS STORY -  "My 30-year-old son adopted Rocco.  He spent lots of time with him at the shelter along with me and his family.  The dog was great and we did love him very much.  But the decision to euthanize him was the right choice.  Unfortunately something happened to Rocco at some point in his life to make him aggressive.  I do not believe that a behavioral specialist can make a choice about a dog's behavior after spending an hour with him.  It's not Rocket Science!  I spent time with Rocco and he was good at times but then would become aggressive for no reason.

The trainer said he was relaxed....trust me...he was not.  He was very  ***Hyper***  like a puppy which I thought was strange given his age.  Our family has had many dogs and we are experienced dog owners.  My son kept trying with him although he had left bruises all over his fiances forearms from nipping at her.  Then one day my son took him out for his walk and when it was time to go back in he would not.  He just sat down and looked at him.  My son gave the leash a little tug and said come on Rocco time to go in.  Rocco growled and attacked him snapping his jaws at his arm trying to bite him.  My son was yelling for help outside and had to use his choke collar to choke him.  He tackled him to the ground and picked him up and put him on the back porch.

The dog scared the hell out of him and he did not allow him back in the house.  He called the shelter to come pick him up!   There were other small bites and nips before this, but this time his jaws were snapping shut and he was growling!!!  This behavior was not normal and he could not be trusted.  People can say what they want but if he had gotten to play out his attack on my son, or if he had attacked a neighbor or a child, this story would read a lot different.  They made the right choice to euthanize him as sad as it has made our whole family."


AND HERE IS AN INTERESTING COMMENT TO THIS STORY THAT I THOUGHT WAS WORTH WRITING DOWN AND KEEPING:

"There is no such thing as a "no kill" shelter.  Why? Because they often refuse to take animals if they are full or no longer have the resources to care for them.  What do you think happens to the animals they refuse?  Sadly it is a numbers game:  Spend too much money caring for 1 animal and 10 others may die because of it........

PIT BULLS ARE LIKE EX CONVICTS.  SOME OF THEM ARE NOT BAD AT ALL, BUT MOST PEOPLE DON'T WANT THEM AROUND THEIR KIDS AND IN THEIR HOME."

MONTROSE COLORADO - BIGGEST AND BEST DOG ATTACK DRAMA THIS YEAR FEATURING A BIGGER AND BETTER PIT BULL OR "AMERICAN ALLAUNT??!!!" AND OF COURSE THIS STORY MUST INCLUDE A ""SERVICE DOG""

UPDATE:  THE DRAMA CONTINUES AS DUTCH HAS GONE MISSING ---OH, I HAD A FEELING HE WOULD!!!!!


JUDGE RICHARD BROWN STATED:  "THE PORTRAYAL DOESN'T MATCH THE FACTS. YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE A COMPLETE VILLAGE IDIOT NOT TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.  SOME OF THE THINGS ON LINE CAME CLOSE TO WITNESS INTIMIDATION WHICH IN COLORADO IS CHARGEABLE AS A FELONY."

A woman  raised an  AMERICAN ALLUANT  from a small puppy to 2 years of age then the dog named  "DUTCH"  became the property of Jeremiah Aguilar, her fiance's brother. Aguilar is a veteran totally on disability with PTSD. On November 14, 2012, he left his dog Dutch with its former owner to be watched for a while and this woman also owns........

                 ******* A PIT BULL NAMED "ARTEX" *********

At some point during this "PIT SITTING"  Dutch began attacking Artex outside. The woman attempted to break it up and at one point grabbs a tiki torch pole and hits Dutch.  That didn't phase him and the torch bent.  She finally managed to get his leash and restrained him enough to get him inside. THEN..........THE FUR MOMMIE BEGANS WIPING THE BLOOD OFF THE BIG OLE FUR BABY'S SNOUT !!!!!!!!!!!!.....AND HE TURNS ON HER....BITES HER TO THE FLOOR...SHE FIGHTS HIM EVEN THOUGH THE BITES ARE TO THE BONE FOR 10 TO 15 MINUTES.....SHE FINALLY MAKES IT TO THE BEDROOM AND GETS THE DOOR CLOSED AND THE  MONSTER HEAD BUTTS THE DOOR TRYING TO BREAK IT DOWN AND THEN ATTACKS SEVERAL PIECES OF FURNITURE DESTROYING THEM.  HER INJURIES ARE SEVERE - SHE HAD  A COMPOUND FRACTURE OF THE WRIST AND A SEVERED ARTERY AND MULTIPLE SEVERE BITES TO HER BODY. HER MEDICAL TREATMENT HAS NOW REACHED OVER $28,000.

BUT, THIS DRAMA IS JUST BEGINNING !!!

THIS IS AN INTERNET PICTURE OF "DUTCH" - HE SORT OF LOOKS LIKE A BIG OLE PIT BULL/MASTIFF DOESN'T HE???


HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF THIS "ONCE EXTINCT" OLD TIMEY "GUARD DOG" SAID TO BE BRED FROM GREYHOUND, BULLMASTIFF, AND BULLTERRIER.  I THINK THEY GOT IT BACKWARDS - IT SHOULD BE BULLTERRIER, BULLMASTIFF, AND YOU CAN'T PROVE IT BY ME THAT THERE'S GREYHOUND IN VERY MANY OF THE PICTURES I'VE SEEN ON THE INTERNET. ANYWAY, WHO CARES???? LET'S STUDY THEM AND GET THEM IN OUR MIND FOR IDENTIFICATION CAUSE THESE BIG OLD DOGS MAY BE LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ANY OF US AND IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE NEAR FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HEY, DON'T WORRY, THEY ARE SAID TO BE "GOOD WITH CHILDREN AND OTHER DOGS."  AND THERE'S PICTURES OF THESE DOGS WITH TODDLERS WRAPPED AROUND THEIR NECKS JUST TO PROVE THAT THEY ARE COMPLETELY SAFE.











Maggie the American Allaunt at 8 years old



















There's some controversy about what the victim did after the attack.  She has said that she knew the dog would attack first responders so she called her fiance, Aguilar's brother, and another man,  to help her control the dog before they came. What does it matter??? But when these 2 men got there, the Pit Bull came in the house from outside, and the victim says the fight between the dogs began again!!!!!!!

But this fur mommy got a dose of   "PIT BULL VICTIM REALITY"  WHEN ALL THE FUR MOMMIES  AND FUR DADDIES OF PIT RESCUE CENTRAL CAME OUT OF THE WOODWORK ACROSS THE UNIVERSE TO SAVE THIS POOR ABUSED BIG OLD DOG THAT HAD ATTACKED HER.

 ****MONEY, MONEY, MONEY WAS SOLICITED TO SAVE DUTCH****

THE INCIDENT WENT VIRAL AND A FACEBOOK PAGE WAS DEVELOPED WITH 10'S OF THOUSANDS OF SIGNATURES ON A PETITION, AND OH, DON'T LET ME FORGET, THE THREATS..........ALL THE THREATS TO .......THE VICTIM........THE JUDGE.......MEDIA THAT WROTE ABOUT THIS STORY.........

DUTCH HAD NOT BEEN A LONG-TIME SERVICE DOG FOR AGUILAR, AND JEREMIAH AGUILAR TOOK HIS DOGGIE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS MEDICAL CENTER IN OKLAHOMA CITY FOR TRAINING AS A SERVICE DOG......

        **************AFTER THE ATTACK****************

MUNICIPAL JUDGE RICHARD BROWN STANDS OUT LIKE A LIGHTHOUSE IN A SEA FILLED WITH DEADLY SHARKS SWIMMING IN CIRCLES AROUND AND AROUND IT. HE DID NOT BLAME AGUILAR FOR STARTING THE INTERNET SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE VICTIM, BUT JUDGE BROWN SAID AGUILAR DID LITTLE TO QUELL A 'LYNCH-MOB MENTALITY'  THAT 'SPAWNED AGAINST THE VICTIM'.  HE  SAID HE FOUND NO REASON TO BELIEVE THE DOG HAD BEEN TRAINED TO ATTACK, BUT HE FINED AGUILAR $500 AND ORDERED HIM JAIL TIME  BECAUSE OF......

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


"THE UTTER LACK OF REMORSE YOU HAVE FOR THE VICTIM."(Why, those are words we use to describe Pit Bull owners along with the lying and lying and lying and lying and lying.)


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

HE ALSO FOUND NO REASON TO STOP THE  EUTHANIZATION OF DUTCH.  BUT THIS DRAMA WILL CONTINUE BECAUSE THERE'S ALL THIS FREE TAX MONEY THAT CAN TAKE CARE OF DOGS BIG ENOUGH TO KILL THEIR OWNERS ....AND LITTLE CHILDREN.  AND I JUST CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER - IF THIS WOMAN AND MAN HAD NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO KEEP SUCH LARGE, POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS DOGS, WE WOULDN'T BE HEARING ABOUT THIS SOAP OPERA.  AND I ALSO WONDER.....HOW CLOSE WERE OTHER HOUSES TO THIS HOUSE.  HER PIT BULL AND THE AMERICAN ALLAUNT (I HATE THOSE 2 WORDS) COULD HAVE EASILY ATTACKED A NEIGHBOR'S PET OR, GOD FORBID, A CHILD.

SAME COUNTY AND MORE LOOSE PIT BULLS:  Uniondale - Police opened fire on a pair of Pit Bulls that escaped a fenced-in-yard on Friday and chased a group of children.  They charged at the officers but neither dog was wounded.  They were later tranquilized and seized by animal control.

First,  a 16-year-old boy was bitten on his left arm near Parkside Road and Cedar Road.  Then, ten minutes later, a 54-year-old woman was bitten on the left arm as she walked on Pinebrook Avenue near Parkside Road.  Ten minutes after the second attack, the dogs attacked 24-year-old Janelle Manning on Pinebrook Avenue near Tyler Road injuring her on her left leg and right arm.  The last person to be attacked was 29-year-old Kashina Sylvester who was just getting out of her car in front of 33 Clinton Avenue when the dogs attacked her and she suffered injuries to her face, shoulder and both arms.

Kashina Sylvester, who says she feels like she has been run across with a cheese grater,  fought the dogs after they took her to the ground biting her on the head, thigh, and up and down her arms.  She says she actually put her hands into the dogs' mouth trying to force it off her head!!!!!!!!!  A neighbor heard her screaming and crying and called 911.

CHARLOTTE NC - POLICE SEIZE 27 PIT BULLS IN WHAT THEY SAY MAY BE THE LARGEST DOG FIGHTING OPERATION THE DEPARTMENT HAS EVER INVESTIGATED

SLIDESHOW

Evidence found Friday in the backyard off Carelock Circle in east Mecklenburg County suggest the property was used for both training and fighting of the dogs.  The suspected operation caused concern because of the home's close proximity to J.H. Gunn Elementary School and the fact that it was not a rural area but a neighborhood.

MELVIN SMITH, 46, AND LEFONZE WILLIAMS, 42, BOTH OF CHARLOTTE were charged with felony training of animals with the purpose of dog fighting and baiting.  BOTH WERE JAILED EARLY SATURDAY UNDER A $25,000 SECURED BOND. Officers found evidence such as tethers, supplements and antibiotics and a building where they were actually fighting the dogs. The backyard was about one-tenth of an acre!!!

This is the second set of arrests linked to dog fighting made by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police in the past 2 weeks.  On January 24, police took 14 PIT BULLS after an investigation into suspected drug activity at a home off Grier Avenue also turned up evidence of suspected dog fighting.  Two men were arrested and one of them was charged with animal-related offenses.

Bobra and Roy Cobb wrestled a Pit Bull on New Year's Day to keep it from mauling their little kitten "SUNSHINE".  Roy suffered a broken finger and puncture wounds trying to PRY THE PIT OFF his cat.  Bobra beat the Pit on the head with a concrete patio stone, but the Pit did not let go until the little pet did not move any longer.

In another Melbourne Beach attack, a Chinese Shar Pei/Lab Mix charged off a front porch and attacked a schnauzer ripping the smaller dog's intestines out.

Next, a Palm Bay police officer required surgery after a roaming  Pit Bull/Mastiff Mix  bit  his hand .

The Marks adopted 2 Dachshunds last September and are devastated at losing one of them in such a brutal way. The Fresno County Sheriff's Department says the Pit Bulls are at Liberty Animal control.  The Marks want their tragedy to become a  positive, possibly life saving message to all dog owners:

DONCASTER, SOUTH YORKSHIRE ENGLAND - THE AMERICAN BULLDOG THAT ATTACKED A BELOVED RETIRED GUIDE DOG GREG IN OCTOBER GETS TO COME BACK HOME TO THE DISGUST OF THE VICTIMS FAMILY !!!!!

Retired guide dog Greg was mauled by a dog while out for a walk. His owner Eileen Thompson, 68, and her daughter Jo Cottam, 43, are angry that the Police and Council are failing to take action.  Picture: Liz Mockler D2610LM

Last October Jo Cottam was out walking with her partially sighted mum and her 2 guide dogs and her mum's partially-sighted partner Kelvin when  an  AMERICAN BULLDOG  ran out and attacked their 12-year-old retired guide dog, GREG.   They say they are now disgusted by the sentence handed down to the owner of the attacking dog.  Cottam and her mum, 68-year-old Eileen thompson, who also suffers from Alzheimers, had been told that the Bulldog's owner could face having his dog destroyed.

Instead, HOWARD GEORGE THOMAS SMITH, 38,  was handed a more lenient sentence even though he admitted being the owner of a dog which was dangerous and not kept under proper control.  He was ordered by the Doncaster magistrates to keep his American Bulldog  BUSTER.....

1.  ON A LEAD AT ALL TIMES

2.  MUZZLED AT ALL TIMES

3.  AND HE IS ONLY ALLOWED OUT IN PUBLIC BETWEEN 10 PM AND MIDNIGHT

MRS. COTTAM SAID:  "IT'S ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL, WE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.  IT TOOK ME TWO DAYS TO BUILD UP THE COURAGE TO TELL MY MUM.  WE ARE ALL DEVASTATED.  MY MUM SAID IT FELT LIKE SOMEONE HAD RIPPED HER HEART OUT WHEN SHE FOUND OUT.  THIS DOG IS A MENACE TO SOCIETY.  I MANAGED TO PULL THE DOG OFF GREG BUT THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE THE ADRENALINE KICKED IN, THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH DIFFERENT."

"THIS HAS HAD A HUGE EFFECT ON GREG AND MY MUM.  GREG SERVED AS A GUIDE DOG FOR YEARS AND HE DIDN'T DESERVE THIS TO HAPPEN TO HIM AND ALL WE WANTED.....

            WAS JUSTICE FOR HIM AND THAT HASN'T  HAPPENED !!!"

"THE OWNER HASN'T EVEN APOLOGIZED TO US AND WASN'T EVEN FINED.  INSTEAD THE GUIDE DOGS CHARITY THAT RELY ON DONATIONS TO KEEP GOING HAD TO PAY GREG'S VETS BILLS.

THE FAMILY IS NOW BACKING A CAMPAIGN BY CHARITY GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND TO ALLOW AUTHORITIES TO PUNISH AN ATTACK ON A GUIDE DOG UNDER THE SAME GUIDELINES AS AN ATTACK ON A HUMAN.  THE LAWS ARE SO OUTDATED THEY WERE INTRODUCED ABOUT 140 YEARS AGO.

LEEDS ENGLAND - 3 STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIERS ATTACKED A SMALLER PET IN ROUNDHAY PARK RIPPING OFF ITS EAR - EXPOSING VEINS IN ITS NECK - LEAVING THE LITTLE DOG WITH MULTIPLE INJURIES

The stitches on Sally's neck, where veins were left exposed, can be seen alongside the bandage protecting her head




Owner Christine Graham was away on holiday when the attack took place in Roundhay Park, Leeds
A 4-year-old border terrier, SALLY, was attacked on January 15 by  3 STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIERS as she was being walked in Roundhay Park by a family friend on a leash.  Her left ear was ripped off and she suffered multiple wounds.  Her owner, Christine Graham, 70, was on a trip at the time. When she returned she says that Sally was "MORE DEAD THAN ALIVE."

Mrs. Graham has called for the Dangerous Dogs Act, where an owner can be prosecuted for allowing their animal to be out of control in public, to be tightened as prosecutions are rare.

The friend that was walking Sally states that as they were walking they came upon a woman walking the 3 Staffies and stopped to speak.  The Staffies without warning set upon the poor little pet and proceeded to rip her apart. Several people rushed to their aid and worked to get the aggressive staffies off her.

Mrs. Graham is left with an enormous vet bill !!!

ENGLAND - THE GOVERNMENT HAS MADE CHANGES TO DOG LAWS - MICROCHIPPING COMPULSORY BY 2016 AND DOG OWNERS NO LONGER IMMUNED FROM PROSECUTION IF THEIR DOG ATTACKS A PERSON ON PRIVATE PROPERTY

The government has announced plans to change the law on dog attacks to be extended to cover incidents on Private property.  This change is designed to safeguard postmen, nurses and other workers whose job takes them onto other people's properties.  It closes a loophole that allowed dog owners to be immune from prosecution for attacks on private property.

Also, every dog will be required to have a microchip under their skin by April 2016,  and  they can be identified on a central database.  This was welcomed by charities including the Dogs Trust, Blue Cross and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, which are offering a microchipping service free for the next 3 years.


HOWEVER,  OTHERS FEEL COMPULSORY MICROCHIPPING FAILS TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM OF DOG ATTACKS.  The RSPCA gave a cautious welcome to the announcement but warned that more preventative measures are needed. Microchipping fails to address the problem of dog attacks.  It is a welfare issue that makes it easier for owners to find their dogs if lost ---

        IT IS NOT ABOUT PREVENTING  DANGEROUS DOG ATTACKS!!!

These amendments deal with what happens after a dog attacks.  But there has never been a problem identifying a dog behind an attack.  These are not PREVENTATIVE MEASURES.

"WE NEED A SET OF CLEAR PREVENTATIVE MEASURES THAT GIVE AUTHORITIES POWERS TO COMPEL IRRESPONSIBLE OWNERS TO MUZZLE THEIR DOGS OR ATTEND A TRAINING COURSE. THE GOVERNMENT HAS DONE A MINIMUM THAT THEY COULD POSSIBLE DO.  THE DANGEROUS DOGS SIDE REMAINS A BIG QUESTION."

MINT HILL NC - A BELOVED HORSE IS FINALLY DEAD AFTER BEING ATTACKED 3 DIFFERENT TIMES BY PIT BULLS


http://www.wcnc.com/story/news/local/2014/06/25/10377082/

   

A BELOVED 30-YEAR-OLD HORSE, JOKER,  IS DEAD AFTER THE THIRD ATTACK !!!!!

A man who suffered a heart attack while trying to scare off two pit bull dogs attacking his horse met Friday afternoon with two Mint Hill police officers who may have saved his life.
The officers had responded to a call Tuesday on Dan Hood Road about two dogs on the loose. They saw Bill Williamson lying on the ground, pulled a portable defibrillator from the trunk of one patrol car and revived Williamson.
Police said the pit bulls had also attacked Williamson's horse, Joker, 10 days earlier. The horse was in a fenced pasture both times, police said.
The dogs involved in these two attacks are being held at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Control.
The horse was not seriously hurt in the second attack but Williamson almost died. He said he had open heart surgery 10 months ago.
Williamson met with Officer Keith Mickovic and Sgt. Dan Forster on Friday at his home.
"Obviously I've never been dead before and had to thank anyone for saving my life," Williamson said. "It was sort of a strange meeting, but I was glad I was able to do it."
It was Joker that sustained the worse injuries in the first encounter with the dogs.
"They had her by the throat, ripped a big hunk out of her nose," Williamson said.
When Williamson saw the dogs in his back yard again this week, he and his two sons went outside with their guns and started shooting to scare them off.
"The excitement is what caused my heart to stop," Williamson said.
The two officers hooked him up to a small red defibrillator and restarted his heart.
"I don't know if it's sunk in," said Forster. "I mean we realize what we did and that it's part of our training."
Williams said it all could have been prevented if the dogs had not been loose.
But the dog's owner, Michael Roberts, said he did everything animal control instructed him to do.
Roberts said the first attack happened after his dogs broke their chains. He said after the first incident, animal control fined him and told him he had to put a metal pen in his back yard.
"They got right out of it -- I mean immediately," Roberts said.
He said as soon as he left the dogs alone in the pen Tuesday, they broke out. He expects to have a hearing in the next 10 days to decide if he gets to keep his dogs.
Roberts also said he is in the process of building a permanent fence around the property.
Williamson said he would like to see the breed eliminated from the area altogether.

MINT HILL, NC (WBTV) - Bill Williamson first realized something was wrong when his horse, Joker, didn't show up for breakfast Tuesday morning.
That's when he and his son began searching their property.
"I called her and she just stood there and looked at me and I said come on lets go and I saw blood all over her nose and on her neck and I could tell she was sweating because the dogs had been chasing her," said Williamson
Williamson says this is the third time the horse has been attacked by pit bulls in the past six months.
"Six months ago, it caused me to get so excited I had a heart attack, this time everybody's been trying to keep me calm," said Williamson.
Williamson says he's cared for Joker for 32 years.
On Tuesday, it took a vet several hours and 60 stitches to stitch each gash on her mouth, ear and neck.
"Once they had her on the ground, they grabbed her neck trying to strangle her out," said Williamson.
Williamson says the first two attacks were by the same two pit bulls. They've since been euthanized.
This time, he's not sure who the two pit bulls belong to, but he says they should never have been loose.
"As far as we know they are still roaming the neighborhood and just think if this was a kid, the kid would be dead," said Williamson.
Mecklenburg County animal control is investigating who owns the dogs.
The county has a leash law requiring all dogs to be properly secured.
Owners who violate the laws could be fined between $50- $500.

MIAMI GARDENS FL - 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS ATTACKED A MAIL CARRIER - SHE IS HOSPITALIZED WITH SERIOUS INJURIES

EMOGENE POWELL was known to neighbors as the "singing mail carrier".  She was only a year away from retirement when   2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS  jumped a fence and attacked her.  Neighbors say 2 Good Samaritans came to her aid as she was bleeding profusely and they called 911.  They say the 2 dogs are usually "CHAINED UP IN THE BACKYARD".  The dogs were evidently running loose in the  yard inside a fence when they were able to jump over into the fence next door and attack Ms. Powell.  The owners of the dogs claim they are  not Pit Bulls but are.............

                     *****  AMERICAN BULLDOGS  *****
                               (PIT BULL COUSINS)
                THE POLICE CALLED THEM PIT BULLS !!!!!!!



MIAMI DADE ANIMAL CONTROL WAS AT THE SCENE AND SAY THEY WILL NOT TAKE THE DOGS AWAY AT THIS TIME BECAUSE THERE IS A PROCESS TO THE INVESTIGATION.  ????THE POSTAL POLICE????  CAN REQUEST THAT ANIMAL CONTROL INVESTIGATE THE MATTER UNDER THE DANGEROUS DOG LAW. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WILL DEPEND ON THE OUTCOME OF THAT INVESTIGATION.

When the owners were asked by reporters about their dogs  IN GREAT PIT NUTTER FASHION THEY EXCLAIMED:

                       "MY DOGS ARE NOT DANGEROUS."

The reporters then asked them to bring the dogs out and let them be around everyone and they said:

"NO, ARE YOU CRAZY? WE CAN'T BRING THEM OUT HERE AROUND ALL THESE PEOPLE !!!!!!"

Meanwhile the dogs are  "CHAINED IN THE BACKYARD" and that is no comfort to neighbors who say there are 2 schools just a few blocks away and children walk and play in the neighborhood.

"THOSE DOGS ARE BAD.  THEY ARE VICIOUS AND THEY BARK ALL NIGHT LONG!!!"

JACKSON MS - 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED A MAN WALKING WITH FRIENDS DOWN A STREET

About 3:30 Monday 3 people were walking down Woodbury Road when 2 dogs came from a nearby house and attacked one of the men. The victim's friends said he was bitten on the ankle and other parts of his body causing him to bleed profusely.

"THE DOGS WERE GOING TO KILL HIM IF I HADN'T RUN UP WITH A STICK AND STARTED SWINGING AT THEM UNTIL THEY RAN OFF."

The owner of the dogs said they had just recently moved in and  THEY ACCEPT FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR EVERYTHING  BECAUSE "SOMEHOW" THE GATE GOT BROKEN !!!

THE OWNER ALSO MANAGED TO SQUEEZE SOME PIT NUTTER SPEAK OUT.....

* "SOMETIMES MY DOGS CAN BE PROVOKED IF PEOPLE RUN."

The victim's friend that helped to chase the dogs away is very familiar with what PITS can do.  He said that his cousin 6-year-old  ANASTASIA BINGHAM  was killed in 2010 when she got up early to play in the snow.
