A 61-year-old man from Guizhou Province's Zunyi City was fatally attacked by two vicious Dogo Argentino dogs while exercising on the morning of May 28.[Gog.com.cn]


A neighbor said that he was to celebrate his 62nd birthday that day.  Witnesses recalled how the 2 dogs remained out of control until their owner arrived 2 hours later.

In the 1920's, two Argentinean brothers - Dr. Antonio and Agastin Martinez - came up with the idea of a boar hunting dog crossing 9 breeds  with the now extinct Mastiff-type local canine called the Cordoba:

1. Spanish Mastiff
2. Bulldog
3. Great Dane
4. Bull Terrier
5. Irish Wolfhound
6. Great Pyrenese
7. Dogue de Bordeaux
8. Pointer
9. Boxer

THEY CALLED IT THE DOGO ARGENTINO.

OSHAWA, ONTARIO CANADA - A PIT BULL/AMERICAN BULLDOG MIX BIT A MAN'S NOSE OFF AS HE WAS SITTING ON HIS FRONT PORCH WITH HIS FRIEND

Jimmy Rogers has been left with a gaping hole in his face after a vicious dog ripped the bridge of his nose off as he sat in his front porch

"I WANT JUSTICE. MY NOSE HAS BEEN RIPPED OFF AND I DON'T WANT THIS TO HAPPEN TO SOMEONE ELSE."

JIMMY ROGERS, 23, was sitting on his porch with his girlfriend when an unmuzzled dog named POLO that belonged to his neighbor's brother walked past them. The 3-year-old dog believed to be a PIT BULL/AMERICAN BULLDOG MIX  suddenly turned on Jimmy and launched itself at his head. To protect his girlfriend, he grabbed the dog and it bit down on his nose, tearing away the bridge.

Surgeons had to take a skin graft from his leg to cover the open wound where his nose used to be.  His nose will be rebuilt using bones from his wrist. Traumatised after the attack, he is speaking out about Ontario's lax enforcement of the ban on Pit Bulls.  He told the Toronto Sun that Oshawa  authorities were failing to take Ontario's  Pit Bull Ban seriously and he wants the dog that attacked him destroyed.

ANIMAL SERVICES IN OSHAWA SEIZED THE DOG FOR QUARANTINE BUT IT WILL BE RELEASED WITHIN THE WEEK WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A MUZZLE ORDER.

ONTARIO'S LAWS BAN PIT BULLS, WHICH INCLUDES PIT BULL TERRIERS, STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIERS, AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIERS, AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIERS, OR A DOG THAT HAS AN APPEARANCE AND PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR TO ANY OF THESE DOGS.

BILL SLATE, ANIMAL SERVICES MANAGER, SAYS POLO WAS REGISTERED AS AN AMERICAN BULLDOG.

VANCOUVER WA - 2010 - A PIT BULL COMES OUT OF NOWHERE AND LEAPS INTO A CAR WINDOW AND LATCHES DOWN ON A PRECIOUS BASSET HOUND'S NOSE - BITING IT TO THE BONE



BOB MCDONALD was parked at the Langsdorf Landing boat launch with the windows down and his basset hound Freckles in the passenger seat and a  PIT BULL  came out of nowhere.  He held on to Freckles with one hand and attempted to fight off the Pit with the other but he couldn't. The Pit was pulling her out of the car WITH A DEATH GRIP !!!  A nearby fisherman came to their aid and hit the monster until it let go......but it just came back attacking again.  McDonald finally was able to kick the Pit away himself.  Freckle's had a torn nostril and was bitten down to the bone and the VET BILL IS $1,000.

WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE FIRST HAND HOW VICTIMS OF PIT BULLS ARE FIRST ATTACKED BY THEM .......THEN VICTIMIZED AGAIN BY THE SYSTEM THAT IS SUPPOSE TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC:  NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT THIS ATTACK ON FRECKLES BECAUSE IT  "MIGHT HURT THE PIT'S  ADOPTABILITY" !!!!!!!!!!  BOB MCDONALD SAYS HE MIGHT ADOPT THE PIT BULL HIMSELF SO HE COULD MAKE SURE IT NEVER HARMS ANYONE AGAIN!!!

THIS HAPPENED 3 YEARS AGO AND I SURE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF HE EVER FOUND OUT WHO THE OWNER OF THE PIT BULL WAS TO PAY THE VET BILLS ??? OR IF THIS PIT  BULL WAS ADOPTED OUT ???

SYDNEY AU - 3 PIT BULLS ATTACKED A JOGGER BITING INTO HIS ARMS SHOULDER AND CHEST NEARLY PUNCTURING HIS HEART !!! 2 HEROS RACED TO HIS AID AND SAVED HIS LIFE !!!

Pitbull

UPDATE: THE 3 AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIERS (LOL) HAVE BEEN DESTROYED

ROB NELSON  screamed as the WIDE-MOUTH LAND SHARKS  bit down on  his upper body and dragged him from the footpath and on to the road during the 5-minute attack. TWO  HEROS came to his aid ......

"THEY WERE GNAWING ON HIS SHOULDER THE WAY DOGS DO WHEN THEY HAVE THE KNUCKLE OF A BONE," SAID THE 1ST HERO - CHRIS THOMPSON, WHO KICKED THEM TO DISPERSE THEM BUT THEY CAME BACK AT THEM.

THEN THE 2ND HERO, COLIN MCEWEN, RAN TO THEM BUT THE DOGS TURNED ON HIM AND MAULED HIS HAND.

THOMPSON SAYS HE THEN GRABBED A POTTED PLANT AND CRACKED IT OVER THE DOGS' HEADS  AND THEY DISPERSED BUT STILL CAME RIGHT BACK.  HE THEN GOT A HAMMER AND SMACKED IT STRAIGHT IN THE SNOUT-----"IT DID NOTHING......

 "IT WAS WAGGING ITS TAIL LIKE IT WAS A GOOD TIME !!!"
-

ONE PIT HAD COLIN MCEWEN ON THE GROUND AND WAS GOING FOR HIS HEAD SO CHRIS THOMPSON USED THAT HAMMER ON IT AND THEN CHASED THE DOGS BACK TO THE HOUSE WHERE THE DOGS WERE BEING KEPT.

The victim suffered the worst injuries the paramedics have seen in 27 years on the job.The victim's upper body was so traumatised, they had to insert an intravenous drip through his feet. THEY COULD SEE HIS HEART THROUGH HIS WOUND. They said Nelson's height probably saved his life.  A child or younger person would have had no hope warding off those dogs.

Liverpool Council revealed the dogs' owner had been fined earlier this year for keeping unregistered pets. The dogs have been euthanized.

About 6am Friday Reedley police were called to a pack of 5 dogs attacking animals in their cages.  Officers put the school on lock-down for an hour as the dogs tore through the cages and the area looked like a war zone with carcasses everywhere.  Teachers believe the dogs, at least 3 of them being  PIT BULLS, and one a GERMAN SHEPHERD,  dug under a fence, bit through chicken wire and chewed through wood to kill 54 chickens, 23 rabbits, and injured one pig so bad it had to be put down.

TEACHERS SAY THERE IS ONE THING TO BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THIS TRAGEDY.  AT ONE POINT THIS CAN HAPPEN TO ANIMALS, BUT IT CAN ALSO HAPPEN TO A LITTLE KID.

One dog was captured and euthanized, but police say if they can find who owns the dogs, the teachers, students and parents would like to seek restitution for their losses.

NEW JERSEY - WOMAN ATTACKED BY 2 PIT BULLS - WHERE ARE THE RESPONSIBLE MEN OWNERS AND THE RESCUE ANGELS TO GET CONTROL OF THEIR NANNY DOGS ??? POLICE SHOT BOTH OF THEM !!!!!



The owner and a bystander both tried to intervene but were unsuccessful. The owner actually sat on the victim to protect  her.

UPDATE:  THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE VIDEO SPEAKS - THE OWNER OF THE 5-YEAR-OLD DOGS ACTUALLY SAT ON THE VICTIM TO TRY AND PROTECT HER.

http://www.nj.com/union/index.ssf/2013/05/plainfield_police_shoot_2_dogs.html

PLAINFIELD — The video is brief but disturbing: A woman, lying defenseless on a Plainfield street, pleads for help as two large dogs bite her relentlessly and onlookers scream in horror.
One woman acts as a human shield, lying atop of the victim, while a bystander drags the dogs away by their hind legs and another uses a large stick to try and keep them at bay. But the animals continue to break free and lunge at the victim, until police officers show up and draw their pistols.
Then, just as a car rolls into the frame, a series of loud gunshots ring out.
Plainfield police officers shot and killed the two dogs Saturday on the 1000 block of West 7th Street, according to Police Director Martin Hellwig. The 5-year-old American bulldogs, which police and neighbors say did not have a history of violence, escaped from their backyard around 6 p.m. and attacked a woman walking down the street.

"These were very powerful dogs, and they were intent on doing damage," Hellwig said.
The victim, whom police identified as a 55-year-old Plainfield resident, was semi-conscious and bleeding when officers arrived and found one dog with its teeth around her head. The officers shot and killed the first dog, and when the second dog ran toward the victim again, police killed it as well, Hellwig said.

“I think the officers displayed calmness and courage in the situation," he said. "I'm very proud of them."
The victim is in stable condition Tuesday at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, police said. She sustained numerous bites from both dogs.
Shannon Gwynn was driving her boyfriend and cousin down West 7th Street when she saw the commotion.
“At first it looked like they were playing with her,” Gwynn, 19, said. “But I just stopped the car and I started screaming. They were on a mission — they just wanted to get at her.”
Gwynn, who took video of the ordeal and posted it to YouTube, said she tried to turn the car across the street in an attempt to hit the dogs, but there were too many people around. She wouldn’t allow her boyfriend or cousin to get out of the car, either, because of how menacing the dogs looked as they returned again and again, biting the woman on the ground.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Gwynn, of Edison, said. “It was so gruesome.”
Neighbor Kashif Davis, 20, who witnessed the attack, said the dogs’ owner was the woman in the video using herself as a shield to protect the victim.

"The owner was lying on top of the lady to cover her," Davis said. His 24-year-old brother was the man in the video who used the large stick to keep the dogs back,"  he said.

Davis said police arrived quickly, and, realizing the victim was losing blood, were forced to act quickly.

"It took a lot to take them dogs out. After three shots, they were still running," Davis said. He said police shot the two dogs a total of 10 times as the owner stood by, watching sadly.
"It's tragic what happened, all the way around. Obviously no one wants to see the dogs killed, but they had to do what theyhad to do," Hellwig said.
The dogs had been released into their backyard like any other day, Hellwig said, but the owner was unaware that her gate was left open. The dogs were able to get through the gate and into the front yard, where they attacked the victim.
That gate was shut tight Tuesday, and a sign hanging from it read: “Beware of Dogs.”
The dogs' owner — who was not identified by police or neighbors — could not be reached for comment.
None of the neighbors had ever complained about the dogs, Hellwig said, and an eyewitness told police they even appeared friendly just before the attack started.

“They were very nice dogs. I pet them through the gate," Davis said.

The owner of the dogs, who Hellwig said does not have any history of problems with animals, was issued two summonses under a vicious dog ordinance and another two for violation of leash laws.

BENLLECH, WALES ENGLAND - 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS TAKE DOWN A PRIZED BULL "HERCULES" A FARMER HAD RAISED WITH HIS GRANDCHILDREN - THEY ATE HIS EARS OFF AND ATE OUT ITS UNDERBELLY - BRINGING IT DOWN TO ITS KNEES IN A BLOODY MESS


Leanne Meredith
         OWNER OF THE 2 DOGS  FOUND GUILTY

A STUNNED FARMER SAYS THE MOMENT HE FOUND 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS SAVAGING HIS PRIZE BULL, IT WAS LIKE SEEING 'LIONS ATTACKING A ZEBRA'.



HEFIN THOMAS told the court he found the 2 AMERICAN BULLDOGS that belonged to LEANNE MEREDITH foaming at the mouth as they attacked his bull in its pen.  They had climbed over into the pen onto the bull's back and torn its ears off and ripped into its underbelly REDUCING IT TO A BLOODY MESS ON ITS KNEES. IT WAS IN SUCH A TERRIBLE STATE. IT WAS A PEDIGREE ANIMAL WORTH A LOT OF MONEY AND IT SURVIVED ON MEDICATION FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, BUT EVENTUALLY IT HAD TO BE  PUT DOWN.





IT WAS LIKE THE HOUNDS OF BASKERVILLES.  THE NEIGHBOURS HEARD THE SOUND OF THE DOGS AND ONE FARM WORKER TOLD THE COURT AT HOLYHEAD HE FEARED FOR HIS LIFE WHEN THE DOGS, NAMED MURPHY AND MILEY, ATTACKED THE 3-YEAR-OLD BULL NAMED HERCULES AT TYNYGONGL FARM, NEAR BENLLECH, LAST JULY.  HEFIN THOMAS HAD RAISED THE BULL FROM A BABY AND IT WAS A FAVORITE OF HIS GRANDCHILDREN.  THEY HAD NAMED IT HERCULES.

The nutjob - Leanne Meredith - told the judge that the attack took place after the bull had strayed on to her property and the dogs were defending themselves and that prosecution witnesses were lying.  District Judge Andrew Shaw rejected her claims.  After a 2-day trial she was found guilty of allowing the dogs to worry livestock and a charge under the Dangerous Dogs Act of allowing the dogs to enter a place where they were not permitted to be.

After a separate trial she was also found guilty of charges relating to another dog in which 9 sheep died. Nia Lloyd, prosecuting, said there will be applications for destruction of the dogs, compensation, disqualification from keeping dogs, and court costs, and also huge kennel fees.

THERE WASN'T EVEN ENOUGH SKIN LEFT ON HER CALF TO SEW UP HER WOUND.  SHE WILL HAVE TO GET PLASTIC SURGERY INCLUDING SKIN GRAFTS.

KNOX COUNTY TN - NEIGHBOR'S 2 PIT BULLS RUN LOOSE AND TRY TO GET INTO ANGELA GARRETT'S FENCED DOGS - THEN ONE OF THEM ATTACKED HER

The attack is shocking for other residents of Northgate Drive, where "Leash Law" signs are posted.

A Knox County woman was attacked by a neighbor's  PIT BULL  Saturday afternoon.  ANGELA GARRETT  says she first noticed her neighbors   2 PIT BULLS   loose  in her  front yard  around 3:30pm.  She says they were trying to get to her 2 dogs by getting under her fence.  She shooed them away.  Then about 10 minutes later she heard a commotion and went out and the dogs' owner,  J.J. POWERS, was trying to take the dogs back home.  Her own dogs were upset and as she tried to calm them down, one of the  PIT BULLS  lunged at her.  Before the owner could pull it off it bit into Garrett's left hand and leg twice, pinning her against her own car in the driveway.

Her leg wounds were 2 1/2 inches deep nearly to the bone.  Her hand may need surgery.  She received many stitches at the hospital.  BUT SHE SAYS MORE THAN THE PHYSICAL ATTACK THE EMOTIONAL TRAUMA IS BY FAR THE WORST.  SHE IS AFRAID TO BE OUTSIDE AND IS ALWAYS LOOKING OVER HER SHOULDER.  SHE SAYS THAT EVERYTIME SHE SEES A DOG NOW, SHE IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE SCARED.

 Animal Control removed the 2 PIT BULLS for evaluation as the investigation continues.

LOWELL SUN - EDITORIAL - OPINION - PULLING OUR CHAIN WITH PIT-PULL CHARM CHARADE - SHOULD LAWMAKERS BE PROTECTING THE CIVIL RIGHTS OF DOGS OVER THE PUBLIC SAFETY OF HUMANS?

LowellSun.com  5/7/13

One group's campaign to portray pit bulls as just another lovable pet took its dog-without-pony show to Lowell on Sunday, hoping to charm citizens of a city who apparently know better.

BSL Awareness Walks, an organization that touts itself as "responsible pit-bull owners," hoped that a 90-minute stroll through Lowell with their tethered animals would convince people to shed those unwarranted  "stereotypes" associated with that breed.  By the way, the "BSL" in the group"s name stands for "breed-specific legislation."

That's something our state Legislature struck down in 2012, which voided Lowell's 2011 initiative designed to do just that.  A city ordinance had required pit bull owners to spay or neuter their dog, register it with the city clerk's office, keep the dog on a leash when off the owner's property, and require the wearing of a muzzle or be secured in a temporary enclosure.

The council's initiative was in reaction to a series of pit bull attacks and the concern of overpopulation.

However, our state lawmakers opted to .........

PROTECT THE CIVIL RIGHTS OF DOGS OVER THE PUBLIC SAFETY OF HUMANS, APPARENTLY ASSUMING THAT PIT BULLS INDEED WERE GETTING A BAD RAP.

But the truth serves as a viable defense against libel or slander --  something the BSLers and Statehouse gang apparently didn't consider.

A series of findings, compiled by DogsBite.org, a national dog-bite-victims' group, should lead any level-headed individual to an obvious conclusion:

* From 2005 to 2012, two dog breeds accounted for 73 percent of the dog attacks that resulted in deaths: pit bulls and rottweilers.

* More than 600 U.S. cities have adopted breed-specific laws since the mid- 1980s, coinciding with the popularity of pit bulls as pets.

* Several countries, including Great Britain, regulate dangerous dog breeds with breed-specific laws.  One of the four breeds specifically mentioned in Great Britain's Dangerous Dogs Act of 1991 is the pit bull terrier.

So, aside from personal experience, there's plenty of evidence to suggest why the average citizen would feel threatened by this particular dog  breed.

And it's going to take more than   A PITBULLS-ON-PARADE ROAD SHOW AND MISGUIDED POLITICIANS ON BEACON HILL TO CHANGE THAT PERCEPTION.

On Friday a 15-year-old girl was walking her pet dog on a leash when they were attacked by a  PIT BULL that   "SOMEHOW" escaped its yard.  The teen suffered injuries ot her arms and one of her ears and was hospitalized.  Animal Control took the dog which was unlicensed and had no proof of vaccination.  The investigation is still ongoing.

This is at least the 5th attack in which someone has suffered serious injuries in an attack by a  PIT BULL in the area.  An 87-year-old woman in Jurupa Valley was mauled in January, a 91-year-old woman was killed in Hemet in February, a 76-year-old woman in San Jacinto was wounded in March, and a Hemet woman was injured and her dachshund killed in April.

Riverside County is considering an ordinance that would require PIT BULLS  and  PIT BULL MIXES that live in unincorporated areas to be sterilized.

PAULINIA , SAO PAULA BRAZIL - FAMILY'S ST. BERNARD ATTACKED AND KILLED THEIR 14 MONTH OLD TODDLER

O bebĂȘ chegou a ser socorrido pelo Samu

On Thursday, May 9, a family's  St. Bernard breed dog killed their 14 month old toddler in their backyard in Jardim Paulista, in Paulinia. According to the Military Police (MP) the child was in the company of his father, a pastor for 40 years, and the dog was chained.  The dog grabbed the child by the stomach and was swinging him around like a puppet.  The child was transported to a hospital and was going into surgery but went into cardiac arrest.  He was resuscitated and surgery began but after a half an hour he died due to a large lesion in the iliac vein in the pelvis.

The police went to the scene of the attack and the St. Bernard was taken to the Center for Zoonosis Control in Vila Bressani. A minister then testified to the MP that the attack may have been motivated by jealousy, since the dog is there with the family 2 years before the baby was born.  The child's mother was working at the time of the attack.  A funeral for the baby, SAMUEL,  will be held at 12:30 on Friday.
