JOHNSON COUNTY KY - A PIT BULL BROKE ITS CHAIN AND ATTACKED AN 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL PLAYING AFTER SCHOOL

An 8-year-old girl was playing in the Nippa Community of Johnson County on Friday afternoon after she got out of school. A  PIT BULL  that was tied up at a home about 70 feet away from where she was playing broke its chain  and went for the little girl.  She was bitten on her leg and  her side. This isn't the first time the dog has attacked a child.  Another child was bitten in February.

Deputy Sheriff Tim Clark says that when he spoke with the owner.......

HE HAD NO REMORSE OR CONCERN FOR THE LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS BITTEN AND COMMENTED THAT IF KIDS GO ON HIS PROPERTY THEY ARE FAIR GAME.

Clark has presented the case to the county attorney and asked for a charge of harboring a vicious animal against the owner. At the county level there are no leash laws.

The other 2 ran off.  Animal Control and police located  the surviving Pit Bulls and when the officer went to talk to the owners, one of the dogs ran out of the yard and rammed him in the leg, knocking him to the ground.  The officer kicked at the Pit Bull and shouted at it.  The dog initially turned to flee but then turned again and was preparing to attack then the officer fired a round from his .40 caliber handgun and that frightened the dog away.

KERN COUNTY CA - A PIT BULL MAULED A BOXER MIX TO DEATH THAT HAD BEEN PUT IN THE SAME KENNEL WITH IT AT THE COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER



A  Boxer Mix dog was killed by a  PIT BULL  last week at the Kern County Animal Control shelter after it was placed in the same kennel with the Pit Bull. Someone took a picture of it and sent it to 17 News. The picture shows  a brown Pit Bull standing in its kennel and a Boxer Mix is laying on the floor dead with a bloody wound on its neck.  Many are now wondering why a Pit bull was sharing a cage with another dog.

In an interview Jen Woodard, Kern County Animal Control Director said that they had been together for a day and a half before the incident.  She says this is the first incident of its kind she knows of since she took the position in October.........AND AT THAT TIME (OCTOBER?) SHE DECIDED TO INTEGRATE THE PIT BULL-TYPE DOGS, ONCE ISOLATED, INTO THE GENERAL POPULATION TO TRY AND GET THEM ADOPTED.

Donna Ruiz with the non-profit group, Alpha K9, is questioning the pairing program. She says it was an accident waiting to happen and it should have been thought about a little bit better. Officers don't always know the dog's history and the added stress the shelter creates does not help....

"You are putting a regular offender with an offender that's a murderer. Something is bound to happen."

Woodard says she does not want to put animals in danger.....but at this point there are no plans to change the current procedure of pairing dogs as seen fit.

INTERESTING ANALYSIS OF JEN WOODARD FROM A COMMENT ON THIS STORY

By:  Jane Rawlings  4/24/13  10:55am

I am wondering how someone like this Jen Woodard ever got any position, let alone director, at any shelter or AC agency.  I consider it a SOCIOPATHIC trait that she is more than willing to sacrifice the lives of many ordinary normal dogs in order to push her fantasy about the pit bull types.  It's  SOCIOPATHIC  to refuse the reality check these dead dogs are giving her -- she's planning to continue to sacrifice dogs to her pit bull fetish. One has to wonder whether she secretly enjoys finding dogs dead in the morning. Most pit bull fetishists do, though they never say so openly.  I worked for years in shelters. Pit types were always housed alone, unless they come in with a mate they'd lived with for years.  Even so, we sometimes found one of the two dead in the morning.  It is SOCIOPATHIC to pretend that the pit bull type dogs are just dogs and more so to sacrifice other dogs to this personality disorder. This Jen Woodard needs to be fired immediately and replaced by someone who is mentally and emotionally healthy.  If she's not immediately fired, people should stop taking non-pit dogs to this shelter.  These normal dogs won't be euthanized, but allowed to be torn to bits alive by this SOCIOPATH. Better take your dog to a vet and have it gently put down than to subject it to this woman's (covert) sadistic pathology.

    AND PLEASE READ THE OTHER COMMENTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!

ROTORUA NZ - A 2-YEAR-OLD "FAMILY" PIT BULL ATTACKED ITS OWNER - SEVERE INJURIES TO HIS HAND

A Rotorua man was attacked by his 2-year-old American pitbull.

Rotorua District Council animal control supervisor Kevin Coutts said when attacks of this kind happen there  is usually something behind the attack.  However, in this case the dog was well-raised, fed appropriately and exercized.  It lived in the home with its owner.  The owner was sitting down at home when the dog growled and lunged at him  leaving him with severe injuries to his hand. He managed to get free and ran outside, slamming a gate between himself and the animal.  The dog was put down.

THIS MAN IS LUCKY TO BE ALIVE AND I'M GLAD HE GOT ATTACKED AND NOT THE NEIGHBOR'S CHILD!!!

FRENCH CAMP CA - A PACK OF DOGS BELIEVED TO BE MOSTLY PIT BULLS HAS KILLED MORE THAN 200 GOATS AND CHICKENS AND DUCKS

UPDATE:  THEY THINK THEY HAVE SHOT OR CAPTURED ALL THE DOGS....ATTACKS HAVE STOPPED !!!

UPDATE:  THE DOGS ARE SAID TO BE PIT BULLS, GERMAN SHEPHERD, COYOTE MIX

UPDATE:  Livestock owners are on alert as more than  200  goats have been killed in less than a week. The killings in French Camp are the latest in a string of  PIT BULL ATTACKS  in San Joaquin County in recent weeks:

* On April 11, a Stockton woman was mauled to death

* That same day a woman was walking her Dachshund on Lodi Lake and a Pit Bull brutally attacked and killed it.

* 3 Pit Bulls are waiting to be prosecuted by the city of Lodi after escaping their yard and injuring another dog.

* Recently, Vanessa Foreman of Lodi was sitting with her black lab and sister at Starbucks when a man and his Pit Bull walked by and without warning the Pit Bull attacked the Lab.  They were lucky in that the Pit was pulled away before it did a lot of damage.

"THIS IS SURREAL", said Joe Mayar, manager of Stockton Livestock Auction Yard in French Camp."IT WAS HORRIFYING, AND THEY'RE GOING TO COME BACK. THEY ARE PIT BULLS AND IF THEY GET A HOLD OF AN ARM OR A LEG OR A THROAT, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LET GO."  Mayar discovered the gruesome scene early Monday morning when he saw at least 6 aggressive  ****PIT BULLS**** viciously slaughtering his goats while piles more laid motionless nearby.  When the incident was over and the dogs finally left, Mayar said 87 goats were dead and 73 more suffered injuries so severe that they had to be put down.

The pack first struck one of Mayar's neighbors killing 40 goats and roughly 80 chickens and ducks. On Wednesday after 4 separate Pit Bull attacks, the Sheriff's office warned all surrounding schools about the pack of dogs.  It is believed for the most part the dogs are hiding during the day and attacking at night.

_______________________________________________________

Early Monday morning 160 goats were seriously injured and killed at the livestock auction yard in French Camp causing San Joaquin County Sheriff's Deputies and animal control officers to launch a major search.  Several other residents with goats also lost some of their animals to the dog attacks. Witnesses confirm that the dogs include several  PIT BULLS.  Many residents began staying up at night to keep a close eye on their livestock, but early Wednesday morning the same pack of dogs attacked the goats at a home 2 miles from the livestock auction yard.  Benjamin Ruvalcaba said the dogs attacked his 22 goats and killed 5 of them.

The dogs were spotted by a neighbor, a sheriff's deputy, and animal control  and there seemed to be about 10 dogs.......

"THEY DON'T EVEN EAT THE GOATS --THEY JUST KILL THEM AND GO ON TO THE NEXT ONE."

An airplane was called in to help in the search and they found some dogs by a creek and a Pit Bull charged them and it was shot.  A trap has also been set with 2 live goats to catch the dogs.

MCALLEN TX - 2 UNLEASHED PIT BULLS ATTACKED CANDICE YODER'S 3 DOGS AS SHE WALKED THEM IN THE DOG PARK

Candice Yoder wants justice for her 3 dogs that were attacked at  --- THE MCALLEN DOG PARK --- on Sunday.  She says she had her 3 dogs on leashes when she entered a trail surrounding the park when she noticed a woman with  2 UNLEASHED PIT BULLS.    The Pits immediately went after her dogs.  A white Pit Bull went after her Chihuahua first then went after her other 2 dogs.  She began screaming for the woman owner to get her dogs off  but she didn't do anything.  Her dog Spot suffered the worst injuries.  Then the attack was over and she didn't see the woman that was with the Pits anywhere.

She took her dogs home and says she could not afford emergency treatment for them so she waited and took them to a vet the next morning.  Then she filed a police report.  The police told her that nothing could be done because there were no witnesses, but Yoder says......

A POLICE OFFICER WITNESSED THE ATTACK. HIS CAR WAS FACING RIGHT DOWN THE SIDEWALK WHEN THE ATTACK HAPPENED.

Yoder is hoping the officer will come forward with information or video of the attack.  However, McAllen Police tells Action 4 News that they have no record of any officers being in the vicinity at that time.

PATAGONIA AZ - A PIT BULL TERRIER NAMED BELLA BOOP WAS GIVEN TO A MAN AS PART OF A ALCOHOL RECOVERY PROGRAM

Bella Boop

IT SOUNDS SO POSITIVE ...DOESN'T IT?...JUST A REAL GOOD THING TO ADOPT OUT A PIT BULL TERRIER AS A REWARD.....SO IT SEEMS............

SO HERE'S ABOUT THE MOST RED-NECKED DRAMA ANYBODY CAN TAKE:

Joshua New had just got his Pit out of quarantine after 10 days.....cause it  jumped out of the back of New's truck and  TORE A HUGE CHUNK OUT OF ANOTHER DOG NEARLY IDENTICAL TO ITSELF BEING WALKED BY A 12-YEAR-OLD BOY.  That vet bill was almost $400.

NEW SAYS THAT NO ONE WAS AROUND TO HELP HIM DURING THAT PIT FIGHTING ATTACK......AND.........HE USED A HAMMER TO GET THE PIT BULL UNDER CONTROL.

YES....THE STORY SAYS THAT HE SAYS HE HAD TO  USE A HAMMER TO GET THE PIT BULL UNDER CONTROL.

So BELLA BOOP was quarantined for 10 days and the day New went to get her it just happened to be

                      "RABIES VACCINATION DAY"

New had his sweet baby lick you to death nanny dog vaccinated and he took her back to his truck.  He then took his "SECOND DOG" to be vaccinated and while he was gone good ole BELLA BOOP spotted another white terrier that looked like her and she jumped out of the truck and attacked it - right there at the

PROBABLY FREE VACCINATION CLINIC.....AND IT WAS A BLOODY MESS!!!

SO THE "DO GOODERS" THAT DEALED AND WHEELED  IN ADOPTING OUT BELLA BOOP TO A IRRESPONSIBLE ALCOHOLIC REALLY GAVE HER A GOOD LIFE AND IT ALL SOUNDS SO GOOD AT FIRST GLANCE....BUT IN THE END SHE GOT A DIRT NAP ANYWAY!!!

DELRAN NJ - SELF-PROCLAIMED DOG TRAINER JACQUELINE LOCKARD STOLE A NEIGHBOR'S CHOCOLATE LAB "MOOSE" - THEN SOLD HIM - THEN TOOK HIM BACK TO TRAIN HIM AND LEFT HIM IN A HOT CAR AND HE DIED

Animal Cruelty Sentencing

JACQUELINE LOCKARD, 24, is a high school graduate with no further schooling or training and  is described by police as a "dog rescuer and trainer."  On her websites, www.communicatingcanines.com and abnerspress.com, she describes herself as a behavioral specialist with professional experience.

Last summer Moose, a chocolate Lab that belonged to a neighbor of Lockard, got out of his yard and within minutes a search party was organized to look for him.  Lockard was approached about 15 minutes after Moose disappeared because his owner, Sissy Workman. believed he would have gone to her home to play with her 2 dogs.  Workman testified at the court trial that Lockard knew where Moose belonged  but lied and hid him in her house.

Lockard then sold Moose to a Pennsylvania family.  That family then returned the dog to her for training, and    on July 13............

SHE LEFT MOOSE IN A HOT VEHICLE  AND HE DIED. SHE THEN RETURNED MOOSE'S DEAD BODY TO HER NEIGHBOR AND CONCOCTED AN ELABORATE STORY TO COVER UP HER INVOLVEMENT IN HIS MONTH LONG DISAPPEARANCE AND DEATH.  SHE SAID SHE FOUND MOOSE DEAD WHILE JOGGING NEARBY.  BUT THE SEARCH PARTY HAD LOOKED IN THAT AREA MANY TIMES AND MOOSE SHOWED NO SIGNS OF BEING OUTSIDE WANDERING WHEN WORKMAN INSPECTED HIS BODY.  SHE DESCRIBED MOOSE AS BEING MUCH THINNER.

Superior Court Judge Jeanne T. Covert sentenced Lockard to serve 2 years of probation and complete 150 hours of community service.  She must also pay $1,500 in restitution and an additional $500 in fines as part of a negotiated plea deal on charges of theft and animal cruelty involving Moose and one of her own pets who she left outside in the heat without water 2 weeks after Moose died in the hot car.......

"MOOSE'S LAW" WOULD PROHIBIT JACQUELINE LOCKARD AND ANYONE ELSE CONVICTED OF ANIMAL CRUELTY IN ANY STATE FROM WORKING IN THE "ANIMAL BUSINESS" AND FROM OWNING A PET IN NEW JERSEY!!!

SHE WAS ALSO BARRED FROM EVER HAVING CONTACT WITH  DOMESTICATED ANIMALS IN NEW JERSEY.
                      
ASSEMBLYMEN TROY SINGLETON, D-7TH OF PALMYRA;  HERB CONAWAY, D-7TH OF DELANCO; AND JOHN BURZICHELLI, D-3RD OF PAULSBORO, ARE SPONSORS AND IT WAS APPROVED BY THE ASSEMBLY IN MARCH.  THE SENATE HAS YET TO VOTE ON THE BILL.  IT WOULD BAR PEOPLE CONVICTED OF ANIMAL CRUELTY IN ANY STATE FROM WORKING IN ANIMAL CARE JOBS, SUCH AS VETERINARIAN OFFICES, DOG TRAINING CENTERS, RESCUE GROUPS, KENNELS OR GROOMERS, IN NEW JERSEY.

******IT WOULD ALSO PROHIBIT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF ANIMAL CRUELTY FROM OWNING A PET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    

          JACQUELINE LOCKARD NOW LIVES IN PHILADELPHIA PA.

DETROIT MI - A ROTTWEILER ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD AUTISTIC BOY GETTING IN A CAR - INFURIATED FATHER TAKES THE LAW IN HIS OWN HANDS AND KILLS THE VICIOUS DOG

As a 5-year-old autistic boy was leaving his yard to get in the car with his grandmother on Monday when a neighbor's ROTTWEILER  attacked him.  It grabbed his leg and shook it until he fell and then it dragged him to the other dogs with the boy's face in his mouth shaking him the entire time.  His mother says blood was everywhere.  The boy's father, DePaul Simmons, rushed to the scene to find his wife hysterical and his son sitting in the truck screaming.  He told them to take little Ricardo to the hospital....and he says....he never saw police or an ambulance come.
       
Simmons says he waited for several hours to see what was going to be done with the dog that did this to his autistic son.  HE THEN TOOK AN AX AND BEAT THE DOG, THEN HE RAN OVER IT WITH HIS CAR.  He says any real parent would have done the same thing.

It appears that police officers and an ambulance may have come within 24 minutes so this story says even though this father says he never saw them.  A WARRANT HAS NOT BEEN SIGNED.  INTERESTING COMMENTS AND ALL SUPPORT THE FATHER !!!

CHICAGO IL - 1905- A BULLDOG ATTACKED AN 18-MONTH-OLD GIRL - 8 BULLETS FINALLY KILLED IT BUT IT HAD TO BE PRIED OFF THE BABY GIRL'S HEAD WITH A IRON BAR !!!

              A MAD BULLDOG KILLS BABY GIRL

The Vicious Beast had been a Playfellow.  It Shook her Like a Rat.

Bullets killed the brute, but his terrible fangs held unmercifully to the little victim - little one torn to pieces.  Unconscious that there could be peril for her in the dog which had been her playfellow since she could creep about the floor, Yvonne Davis, 18-months-old, toddled bravely in pursuit of a rubber ball with which she had been playing in her father's yard at 1042 Otto Street.  Her life was the penalty

The ball rolled near where "Jack", a heavy-headed bulldog, lay crouched beneath a cherry tree, a stout chain limiting the circle of his movement, the baby's thoughts were busy on the ball.  She did not notice how the wicked little eyes, red with rage, watched her.  Yvonne came nearer and stooped for the ball.  With a spring like a wild animal the dog was upon her, the massive jaws closed with terrific force on the baby's head and bore her to the ground, where the brute tore at the tiny form as if mad. Despite beatings showered on it and bullets fired into its body, it clung to its prey.

At the eighth bullet the infuriated animal fell lifeless.  but an iron bar was necessary to pry loose the cruel white teeth from their death grip.  In ten minutes the baby was dead passing away while a physician worked over her.........

FAIRFIELD, ADAMS COUNTY PA - A PIT BULL ATTACK THAT LED TO THE PARTIAL AMPUTATION OF 6-YEAR-OLD BROOKE-ANN BOYD'S NOSE IS MAKING ITS WAY THROUGH THE LEGAL SYSTEM

6-year-old Brooke Boyd shows the scars from a pit bull attack that happened April 16.
The attack happened in April 2011 when Brooke-Ann Boyd walked to a neighbor's house to play with a friend.  She knocked on the front door of the home of Richard and Joyce Sprouse  and was told to just let herself in.  The Sprouse's male  PIT BULL   CHAOS  pushed through the front door and attacked her on the front porch.  It bit off a portion of her nose and inflicted a deep cut on her cheek.  Surgeons attempted to reattach her nose that was found on the porch.  Despite 23 hyperbaric oxygen treatment therapy sessions, the reattachment of the nose failed.  After that several facial reconstruction surgeries took place.

Despite the fact that a criminal trial was completed in October 2011 in which Richard Sprouse was found guilty of unlawful confinement and control of his dog and of harboring a dangerous dog, the family did not file a civil suit until now because of the ongoing recovery and medical needs.  The same attorney handling this case, THOMAS NEWELL,  also represented  AJIA BROWN, an 8-year-old who was attacked by 2 Pit bulls that bit off portions of his scalp and portions of both his ears.  In October 2012 Ajia was awarded $508,613 by Travelers Insurance.

MURFREESBORO TN - RADIO STATION WGNS WEIGHS IN ON PIT BULL ATTACKS AFTER A PIT BULL ATTACKED A MAN'S CHIHUAHUA AND THE MAN SHOT THE PIT WITH A REMINGTON 700 RIFLE


Pitt Bull Dog Shot and Killed after Incident in Murfreesboro | Pitt Bull dog, Pitt Bull Dog Attack, Pitt Bull, Murfreesboro News

ANOTHER PIT BULL DOG ATTACK HAS BEEN REPORTED IN MURFREESBORO.

This time the victim of the attack shot and killed the animal because it had attacked his Chihuahua.  The incident occurred on Monday in the area of Jackson Street and Lee Street.

THE DOG WAS SHOT WITH A REMINGTON 700 RIFLE.

The small family pet survived.  No charges will be filed in this case as the shooting was deemed justified. Why do we have more Pit Bull stories as opposed to other breeds?  Whenever WGNS airs stories about Pit Bull related attacks we get feedback from the community suggesting that we only air dog attack stories that involve Pit Bull Dogs.  That is not the case.  75% of the police reports filed in Murfreesboro that involve a dog attack are dog attacks involving a Pit Bull Dog.  If other attacks are taking place, no one is calling the police because a report or reports have not been filed.  Out of eight dog attack related stories WGNS reported since 2008, six involved a Pit Bull Dog.

UNDER WHAT LAW DOES ANYONE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KILL  A PIT BULL DOG IN TENNESSEE? 

TN Code Annotated:39-14-205.  Intentional killing of animal.

(b) A person is justified in killing the animal of another if the person acted under a reasonable belief that the animal was creating an imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury to that person or another or an imminent danger of death to an animal owned by that person.  A person is not justified in killing the animal of another if at the time of the killing the person is trespassing upon the property of the owner of the animal.  The justification for killing the animal of another authorized by this subsection (b) shall not apply to a person who, while engaging in or attempting to escape from criminal conduct, kills a police dog that is acting in its official capacity.  In that case the provisions of subsection (a) shall apply to the person.

An elderly woman was left distraught after a brutal PIT BULL TERRIER attack on her beloved Poodle.  Maria Calleja was walking her 2 French Poodles near her house in deer Park earlier this month when the oldest, 18-year-old JACQUES, put his nose near a hold in a house fence to smell the grass.  Suddenly a Pit Bull Terrier inside the fence grabbed hold of his face.  She tried to hit the big dog in the head and then just began screaming and she realized her little Jacques' face was ripped off.  She had to wait 3 hours before Jacques could be euthanized at Werribee Animal Hospital and he remained conscious until them.



She could not afford to have him cremated and the local Brimbank Council told her nothing could be done about the attack because it occurred on private property.

OWNER:

* Sonny was a sweet but protective animal.

* She slept in the bed with me.

* She played with children.

* She never bit anyone before.

* She does bark like crazy.

* I was standing inches away from her when the single shot was fired.

* I was pleading with the officer to let me handle the situation.

* I said I have the leash and I'm going to get her.

* If you just get back in your car I'm going to get her.

* Oh, the officer got back in his car and she was still not letting me get her.

* The more you are out of your car the more she is feeling like she is trying to protect me.


OWNER'S SISTER:

* Not all pit bulls carry the reputation or the anger that society has portrayed on them.

* The police should have found a better way of handling the situation.

* Pit bulls have a bad reputation but that's a reputation created by humans.

* She was doing her job of protecting my sister.

* She wasn't trained to be vicious.

* It's about how a dog is raised.

* Bottom line is that he just shouldn't have shot her. There are other resources.

* She was shot within 10 seconds.


OWNER'S MOTHER:

* Sonny is always gentle yet protective.

* I'm a little queasy about pit bulls, I'm not going to say I'm not.

* But I come here and all she wanted was to love.

REINHOLDS PA - A LARGE MIXED BREED DOG CHARGED AT YOUNG TEENS GETTING OFF A SCHOOL BUS - YOUNG HERO STEPPED BETWEEN THE DOG AND KIDS AND TOOK THE BITE !!!



Mallory Moyer, 12,  was getting off her school bus last week on Mechanic Street when she saw a big black dog racing toward a girl.  Then the dog turned and ran toward her and another boy.  That's when a young HERO - AUSTIN SMITH, 13, stepped in between Mallory and Lucas, 11, and the big black dog.  He took a bite in his thigh that tore open his skin, and his jeans were ripped and a class schedule he had in his pocket was shredded on the edges.  Parents were grateful for what Austin did and his mom took him to the doctor for treatment of his bite, and she also called East Cocalico Township police because the Mixed-Breed dog has bitten others including  a teen-age boy in 2009.  She says they have been afraid of the dog for many years.

The dog was restrained with a heavy-duty cable tied to a post but it was able to break free of it.

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."

VIDEO

In a developing story a woman was killed Thursday night when she was attacked by a  PIT BULL  that had terrorized an east Stockton neighborhood for months.  The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office received a report of a dog mauling at 8:19pm in the 400 block of North Lillian Avenue.  When deputies arrived they found a dead woman who appeared to have been attacked by a dog......

"THERE'S A LOT OF BLOOD AND THE DOG IS A BIG NASTY PIT BULL."

Neighbors say that the dog has jumped fences to attack other animals and that there are other pit bulls on the owners property.  One neighbor, Rita Vasquez, said that it had attacked her dog and had bitten her late husband.  They had reported it to the sheriff's office but nothing was done at the time.

"WE HAVE GRANDCHILDREN AND I WON'T EVEN LET THEM GO OUT BACK TO PLAY ON THE SWING BECAUSE OF THOSE DOGS.  I'M JUST HOPING THEY TAKE THEM AWAY.  WHY DID SOMEBODY HAVE TO GET HURT FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN?"
