ELDORADO IL - A PIT BULL ESCAPED A FENCE AND MAULED AND KILLED A BELOVED SHIH TZU "CHARLES" BEING WALKED ON A LEASH BY A 13-YEAR-OLD BOY

SHAWNA MITCHELL  says that she and her children are prisoners in their own home because of a vicious dog two doors down from them.  Last Thursday the  PIT BULL  chomped down on their pet Shih Tzu, Charles, and killed him.  It then bit her 13-year-old son and a woman who tried to stop the attack. Animal control picked up the Pit Bull for quarantine for 10 days, but Mitchell says she doesn't want the Pit anywhere near her home and other neighbors say they don't want this as well.  Her son had taken his puppy out for a walk when the Pit Bull burrowed under the fence and attacked them.  He is traumatised after watching his pet being killed.

As far as the wording of the city of Eldorado's ordinance goes, the Pit Bull is considered vicious.  But that's not true with respect to the state. They are going to try and collect information  to see if there is enough evidence to take to the state's attorney.  In Illinois only a judge can rule whether a dog is vicious and can be put down.

The owner also has another dog  (Pit Bull??) that was not involved in the attack.  He says he wants his Pit Bull involved in this mauling back and he will keep it inside his house.

CITY ORDINANCE STATES THAT THE ONLY TIME IT WOULD BE ALLOWED OUT WOULD BE TO OBTAIN VET CARE AND THEN IT WOULD HAVE TO WEAR A MUZZLE AND BE ON A LEASH.

CALDER, WEST LOTHIAN ENGLAND - A STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER MAULED A 6-MONTH-OLD BEAGLE'S HEAD SHREDDING ITS EAR

Mauled: Four-month-old Dexter faces having an ear amputated

A couple was walking their 6-month-old beagle, DEXTER, when a STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER came out of nowhere and locked down on the puppy.  Blood went everywhere and as they fought to pry the pit off  Dexter for several minutes, the owner of the PIT appeared and didn't seem to care.  He eventually got the dog off the little beagle and got his monster back on its leash and gave them a name and address. They rushed their injured and traumatised dog to a vet and was told he may need to have his ear amputated.  They got a second opinion from another vet and are trying now to save his ear.

Traumatised: Dexter is now recovering at home and is having his ear treated everyday to try and avoid an amputation

After returning home they discovered the NUTTER had given them a false name and address.  And because it is a dog-on-dog- attack there is not much that can be done about it.  They also learned that the owner is planning on getting rid of his Pit.  It seems the guy will be allowed to run about with his dog unmuzzled and off leash until it kills another dog or attacks a child.  They are facing huge vet bills.

WAUCONDA IL - A LOOSE PIT BULL KILLED A BELOVED SHIH TZU BEING WALKED ON A LEASH IN COOK PARK

A Shih Tzu named Shibui Fong, left, was killed Tuesday when it was attacked by a pit bull in Wauconda’s Cook Park.

A beloved 10-year-old family pet - a Shih Tzu named Shibui Fong - was being walked along with  the family's blind dog named Rocky in Wauconda's Cook Park about 8am Tuesday by a caretaker.  Suddenly there appeared a  PIT BULL  with no collar, tags or leash.   The caretaker says the Pit was running straight for them and she knew it was for the kill and the MONSTER chomped down on Shibui.  Then the owner of the Pit - JOHN E. BENDER - appeared and pulled the little dog from the jaws of his Pit, then he kicks his Pit in the rear sending him in the direction of their home.  Shibui died on the way to the animal hospital.

Bender was charged with one count of dog at large and one count of disorderly conduct. Animal Control says that Bender....

HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY CITED BECAUSE HIS DOG HAS ATTACKED OTHER ANIMALS.

The owner of the 2 little dogs being walked by a caretaker is Lisa Didier who was in Florida at the time for her daughter's wedding.

Wauconda has no specific law for when a vicious dog kills a smaller pet but more charges could be filed against Bender after the police investigation of the attack.  Bender is expected to appear in court on August 23.  Lisa Didier says that people can be told that their dog has to be on a leash....

BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE LISTEN?  HOW MANY PEOPLE CARE?

MY COMMENT TO LISA:  EXACTLY LISA, PIT OWNERS DO NOT CARE AND THEY WILL NOT LISTEN.  THERE NEEDS TO BE A BAN ON POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS DOGS AND PIT BULLS IN YOUR TOWN AND EVERYWHERE FOR THE SAFETY OF SMALL PETS, CHILDREN, ELDERLY, AND EVERYONE !!!

WASHINGTON DC - GUN CHARGE DROPPED AGAINST A VERY BRAVE MAN - A HERO - WHO SHOT A PIT BULL TO SAVE A CHILD'S LIFE

DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ANDREW FOIS CALLED IT A "ONE IN A MILLION CASE" IN WHICH AUTHORITIES TRIED TO BALANCE WHAT HE DID, THE LAW THAT HE BROKE, THE CIRCUMSTANCES UNDER WHICH HE BROKE IT AND WHAT HE DID TO HELP THE BOY.

               "WE DON'T WANT PEOPLE NOT TO HELP."

Ben Srigley did not have time to ponder his lawbreaking.  He legally bought the handgun in Virginia but failed to register it in Washington. When 3  PIT BULLS  began attacking a young boy on the street outside his Northwest Washington home in January,  he grabbed his handgun from his bedroom and ran outside and shot and killed the one Pit Bull on the boy to save his life.  A DC police officer shot and killed the other two PIT BULLS.

Srigley did what he was asked to do:  He paid a $1,000 fine, he moved to Maryland and he properly registered all his guns there, and he stayed out of trouble for 2 months.  On Tuesday all conditions were met and the charge was dismissed.  He can now petition to get his arrest expunged.  Through it all, Srigley, 39, who runs a home remodeling company and recently got married, remained quiet and did not get involved in the gun debate in this country.

His attorney, Donny Onorato, a former federal prosecutor who took the case for free said his client's position is that:

A reporter got in touch with Mike Fritz, Madison County Animal Control Director, and he knows the owner of the dogs and his history.  Mr. Fritz lets everyone know that ..................

THE OWNER OF THE PIT BULLS IS  A DOG (PIT BULL)  LOVER.  HE LOVES HIS DOGS (PITS) VERY MUCH.  AND HE COULD OWN A HUNDRED DOGS (PITS) IF HE WANTED TO.  THE STATE OF ALABAMA REQUIRES THAT OWNERS PROVIDE FOOD, WATER AND SHELTER - THAT'S ALL.

The county confirmed to the reporter that the renter of the property and the owner of the dogs is JOSEPH LEMONT SANCHEZ who recently was away during an arrest on drug charges.  While Fritz can't force Sanchez to treat the PIT BULLS a certain way, he recommended Sanchez not get any more.

HE'S WORKING WITH AN ORGANIZATION TO HELP MAKE SURE ???

FRITZ SAYS:  "THEY HAVE OFFERED TO SPAY AND NEUTER ANY AND ALL OF HIS DOGS (PIT BULLS) THAT HE WANTS DONE.  WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING THAT DONE AT THIS TIME.  HE HAS AN APPOINTMENT TO GET SOME OF HIS DOGS SPAYED AND NEUTERED TOMORROW."

FRIENDSWOOD, GALVESTON COUNTY TX - A CATAHOULA BULLDOG KILLED ITS OWNER IN MARCH 2007


When PAMELA MCGEE RUSHING'S mother died in early 2007, Pamela took her mother's dog, Cowboy, a Catahoula Bulldog, to live at her home.  It was reported that the dog had never shown hostile behavior toward anyone. There was another dog living at the home, an Australian Shepherd, and her stepson's Golden Retriever that he had brought to the home during spring break. The stepson reported that the dogs sometimes didn't get along because they were all males, but none of the dogs had ever attacked anyone.

Landscapers arrived at the house next to the Rushing home on the afternoon of Saturday, March 16 to discover Pamela Rushing, 50, in a pool of blood in the backyard next door.  They were unable to enter the backyard because of the dogs so they went to a neighbor to call for help.  When police arrived, the Catahoula Bulldog, a cross between an American Bulldog and a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard dog, was shot after he tried to attack the officer coming to Rushing's aide.  The Galveston County Medical Examiner's office ruled the cause of death as "dog attack". A spokesperson for the police department said if a municipal court judge finds the other two dogs caused Rushing's death, the dogs will be destroyed. It was later determined from bite impressions that the Golden Retriever had inflicted at least one bite on the victim and it was euthanized.

THE OWNER LOST CONTROL OF THE  DOG AND YELLED AT THE GIRL TO STAY BACK BUT THE DOG JUMPED UP AND BIT HER ONCE.  ???????  THE DOG'S OWNER APPLIED PRESSURE TO THE WOUND AFTER GETTING THE DOG BACK INSIDE.....

                           "HER"    HOME.

SHE DID.....LET THE GIRL RIDE HER BIKE HOME AND FOLLOWED HER TO INFORM THE GIRL'S MOTHER WHAT HAD HAPPEN AND .....SHE DID.....GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM WITH THEM AND SHOWED AUTHORITIES PROOF OF VACCINATIONS FOR "HER" DOG.

BUT SHE DIDN'T FOLLOW THE ONE RULE THAT MIGHT HAVE KEPT THIS CHILD FROM BEING BITTEN  - SHE DIDN'T MUZZLE IT WHEN IT WAS OUTSIDE.

SHE FACES NO CHARGES THOUGH, BUT THE DOG MUST BE TAKEN OUT OF THE CITY LIMITS AS A SECOND-TIME OFFENDER.

MY COMMENT:  I'D LIKE TO KNOW THE SIZE OF THIS WOMAN/OWNER AND I'D LIKE TO KNOW HOW MANY MEN IT WOULD TAKE TO CONTROL THIS DOG.  LET'S JUST HOPE IT DOESN'T KILL SOMEBODY ONCE IT GETS OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS.

Dog bite wound (Source: Family)
BRINDA WEST says her 1-YEAR-OLD PIT BULL NAMED DEUCE  was never used for protection and was only a pet and had never shown any "serious" signs of aggression before the attack on a 10-year-old girl Monday. BRINDA  says that the 10-year-old girl entered her back yard with a boy to pet her pit. BRINDA says that when her pit bit the child she grabbed her pistol and intended to shoot him but could not get a clear shot.  So she fired a warning shot and yelled his name 3 times and her son was the one that.........

                  PRIED THE PIT OFF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Neighbors said that the girl's clothes were ripped apart and her leg had a dinner-plate sized wound. BRINDA SAYS,   "I'VE GOT CHILDREN SO IT WOULD BE BETTER TO EUTHANIZE IT NOW THAN AFTER MORE REGRETS LATER"

MY COMMENT:  I DONNO, BRINDA'S A NUTTER SO SHE MIGHT JUST GO OUT AND GET HER A BIGGER PIT !!!

GILLETTE WYOMING - NEIGHBOR'S ADULT MALE PIT BULL BROKE FREE FROM A GARAGE AND ATTACKED A 6-YEAR-OLD BOY - GOT HIM IN THE MOUTH AND BIT HIS TEETH OUT!!!

Layton Laatsch, 6, holds his sister's skateboard, the very one he was riding when we he was attacked by a neighbor's pit bull. Despite having several front teeth knock from his mouth and multiple lacerations across his hums, Layton walked away with non-life threatening injuries.
Randi Laatsch let her children play freely in their neighborhood and park without worry as everyone tended to watch out for each other.  (WHAT A CONCEPT!!!) But on June 29 their safe world changed when a  PIT BULL got loose from a garage and got her son's mouth. As the Pit Bull charged her son, it somehow missed taking a bite out of his face and instead got his mouth.  The collision caused the skateboard that Layton was kneeling on to flip up at its nose and hit the dog's chest to soften the blow.  Still he lost 2 teeth and may lose a third that is loose.  It is too soon to tell if his baby teeth were jammed into his jaw hard enough to damage the structure where his permanent teeth will grow.

BUT THE PIT BULL ATTACK DID NOT STOP WITH LAYTON.  AS RANDI LAATSCH HERDED ALL THE CHILDREN INTO HER HOME, A NEIGHBOR STOOD ON HER LAWN TALKING ON HER CELLPHONE TO POLICE.  THE PIT BULL BOLTED ACROSS THE STREET AND BIT THE WOMAN ON HER ARM AND HER LEG AS SHE WAS TALKING TO POLICE.

In the days that followed the attack Layton suffered with nightmares and the extent of his injuries will not be known for a long time.  Their immediate problem is that the Pit Bull owner was on vacation when the Pit got loose.  The dog was caught and impounded for a few days and the 30-year-old woman that owns the dog was ticketed for having a vicious animal and letting it run loose.  Randi Laatsch does not want this dog coming back to her neighborhood because the risk to children is too great.........

BUT CITY ORDINANCES DOES NOT ALLOW FOR CONFISCATION OR EUTHANASIA OF A DOG ON ITS FIRST OFFENCE.

BULLHEAD CITY AZ - A PIT BULL ATTACKED AN 8-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO WAS HELPING ANOTHER BOY LOOK FOR HIS LOOSE PIT - SEVERE FACIAL INJURIES

Animal control officers were called to the 600 block of Citrus Street for a vicious dog bite last week.  The victim's mother said that a neighborhood boy had come over at about 7:45pm Tuesday and asked her to help him look for his dog that had got out.  The mother told him no.  Then her 8-year-old son sneaked out to help the boy look for his   PIT BULL.

The Pit Bull attacked the boy in a driveway and 2 HEROS - were driving by and at first thought the boy was playing with the dog, but then decided to make sure the boy was OK and realized then that the dog was attacking him.  They rushed to help the boy and were able to get the dog off him without being bitten.  The victim suffered severe bite wounds to his face and was taken to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center by ambulance, then later moved to Sunrise Children's Hospital in Las Vegas.

The neighbor boy's mother - JENNIFER CRYSTAL ZARRAGA, 25 - was cited for having a dog at large and having an unlicensed dog.

THIS STORY DOESN'T SAY BUT I HOPE THE PIT GOT PUT DOWN !!!

LOIS MOGENSEN  was walking her Cavalier King Charles, Tanner, on Saturday when they were attacked by a neighbor's 2 PIT BULLS.  They were intent on killing the little dog and bit Lois in the process.  Her beloved pet died in her arms........

ENTERS AN IDIOT AT THE KENOSHA AREA HUMANE SOCIETY  TELLING THE PUBLIC ALL ABOUT THE DOCILE TIMID AND CALM PITS THAT ARE JUST UNDERSOCIALIZED.  "THEY'VE JUST BEEN IN ONE HOME AND HAVE NOT BEEN TAKEN TO DOG PARKS...AND ALL....AND DON'T HAVE INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER ANIMALS AND PEOPLE....IT'S JUST FEAR THAT BUILDS UP IN THEM," STATED SHELLEY MALKMUS. 

LOIS MOGENSEN WANTS THE PIT BULLS EUTHANIZED BECAUSE THEY ARE VICIOUS SHE SAYS.

MY COMMENT TO LOIS:  DO NOT WALK YOUR NEW PUPPY YET.  LISTENING TO YOUR HUMANE SOCIETY SPEAK, CHANCES ARE THOSE PITS WILL COME BACK AND NOTHING WILL STOP THEM FROM ESCAPING.  BUT MORE THAN THAT, THERE ARE GRIPPING DOGS AND OTHER DANGEROUS DOGS  EVERYWHERE AND YOU ARE  NOT SAFE WALKING YOUR  LITTLE PET ANYMORE !!!
