TUCSON AZ - AFTER 3 ATTACKS A FAMILY GIVES UP THEIR PIT BULL

January 22, 2013 - One Tucson family says they are grieving the loss of their precious pit bull pup - 9 months old, while residents of the neighborhood feel a grave threat is now gone because the so-called pup....

               HAS ATTACKED 3 PEOPLE JUST THIS MONTH !!!  

The daughter, Peyton Green, 14, says it means giving up her beloved pet. But her friend Samantha Juengling, 13,  says that the pit bull got her sweat pants before, so she didn't really trust the dog.  Sunday night the pair took PEYTON'S PIT  "DREW" OUT FOR A WALK......FIRST THE PIT BULL ATTACKED A TEEN BOY NEARBY, THEN IT LUNGED AT SAMANTHA. SHE RECEIVED 9 STITCHES IN HER RIGHT LEG. AND THIS WASN'T THE DOG'S FIRST ATTACK.  EARLIER THIS MONTH HE BIT ANOTHER OF PEYTON'S FRIENDS.

Animal control says the animal was quarantined then and they did a dangerous dog assessment and he did not score, based on the score sheet, and was not declared  dangerous, and Peyton's family took the dog home with some very valuable advice:

"IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A DOG OUT ON A LEASH OR OUTSIDE OF OUR HOME, HAVE A RESPONSIBLE ADULT PRESENT THAT'S ABLE TO CONTROL THE ANIMAL.  THAT EVENING PEYTON'S  DAD GAVE UP OWNERSHIP OF THE DOG TO ANIMAL CONTROL.  ANIMAL CONTROL RECOMMENDS THAT IT BE PUT DOWN.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                LINK

BERRY AL - 4 PEOPLE ARRESTED IN DRUG RAID AT TUSCALOOSA K9 CAMP - ANIMAL ABUSE INVESTIGATION ONGOING


A drug raid at a canine training camp has escalated into an animal abuse investigation.  Four employees  of the Tuscaloosa K-9 Training Academy, or Camp Mayhem, were arrested on Wednesday on marijuana and drug paraphernalia charges.  Investigators say they conducted undercover buys at the training facility, which also included methamphetamine.  They do not believe the meth was manufactured at the dog training camp.

Veterinarians and employees of the local humane society came to Camp Mayhem on Thursday to evaluate the health of over 130 dogs that were on the property. Cats, kittens, goats, and pigs were also located.  Vet Jimmy Canant says it's probably the worst abuse case he's ever seen.  He says some of the dogs had injuries skin conditions, respiratory conditions, and eye conditions.  But he was most concerned about the number of animals locked in small crates in such tight quarters.  Some of the animals are family pets who were sent to the facility for obedience training. 

               "IT LOOKS LIKE A HOARDING SITUATION TO ME." 

HEATHER LITZ, BRYAN MCQUEEN, CHARLES VANCE, AND NANCE VANCE  are currently in the Fayette County jail.  No bond has been set yet for their release.

FLINT MI - 2 LOOSE PIT BULLS INVADE A YARD AND ATTACKED A 3RD PIT BULL - POLICE SHOOT THE 2 MUTANTS ATTACKING AND SHOOT THE GRAVELY INJURED ATTACKED PIT

Police were called to the 3100 block of Greenley Street around 11:30pm on Sunday, October 20, after.....

2 LOOSE PIT BULLS GOT INTO A MAN'S YARD AND ATTACKED HIS PIT BULL.

Officers shot the 2 attacking pit bulls and the owner of the 3rd pit that was in its own yard asked that they shoot it too because it was gravely injured during the attack. As usual, there are nutters in animal control because they had this to say:

"IT'S NOT UNUSUAL FOR POLICE TO RESPOND TO ANIMAL CALLS ON WEEKENDS WHEN ANIMAL CONTROL DOESN'T HAVE THE STAFF, BUT THE SHOOTING ISN'T HOW WE WOULD HAVE HANDLED IT. THAT'S NOT REALLY THE HUMANE ENDING WE TRY TO DO.  THE DOGS WOULD HAVE BEEN TRANQUILIZED AND IF THERE WAS A PUBLIC SAFETY CONCERN, THE DOGS WOULD HAVE BEEN PICKED UP."

AND I ASK THIS DINGBAT.... HOW MUCH OF THE TAXPAYER'S DOLLARS ARE YOU WILLING TO SPEND TO SAVE A PAIR OF KILLING MUTANT PIT BULLS ??? YOU CAN'T REHABILITATE DNA.  BULLETS ARE CHEAPER. THESE 3 PITS WILL NEVER MAUL A CHILD, OR TEAR THE LEGS OFF A YOUNG ADULT JOGGING, OR KILL A GRANDMOTHER WORKING IN HER GARDEN!!!  AND BESIDES .....HOW I'D LOVE TO SEE THIS NUTTER ARRIVING AT THE SCENE OF THIS ATTACK WITHOUT POLICE PROTECTION.

MY COMMENT:  I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS....I HAVE READ AND DOCUMENTED HUNDREDS OF STORIES WHERE PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN THEIR BELOVED PET DOGS TO VETS AFTER BEING TORN UP FROM LIMB TO LIMB AND DISEMBOWELED BY PIT BULLS AND THEY SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ATTEMPTING TO PUT THEM BACK TOGETHER.  WHY DIDN'T THEY TAKE THEIR ROAMING PIT TO A VET INSTEAD OF SHOOTING IT ????? OF ALL THE SERPENT-EYED PITS I'VE SEEN THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST SERPENT EYED  - IT DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE A DOG - AND IF THAT THING EVER CHARGED UP IN FRONT OF ME I WOULD USE ANYTHING I COULD GET MY HANDS ON TO STOP IT!!!


SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY CA - A FRIEND'S PIT BULL ATTACKED A 3-YEAR-OLD CHILD IN THE FACE

 Three-year old boy recovering after dog bite
A 3-year-old boy is recovering at a local hospital with severe injuries to his face after being attacked by a friend's  PIT BULL   on Sunday.  The owner of the pit says as soon as his 5-year-old dog grabbed the child on the face, he grabbed his dog but the damage was apparent. The victim had injuries to his face, nose and lip and was rushed to Arroyo Grande Community Hospital.  The owner turned his pit over to animal control and it is in quarantine.  They say that the dog's future depends on the circumstances - like a past history of aggression or biting.  This dog had no history of attacking, but there are potential criminal charges in this case regarding child endangerment of the part of the dog's owner, as well as the mother.

NORWAY - MARIA JORSTAD - ATTACKED BY AN AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER AND A BOERBOEL/DOBERMAN CROSS




Photo: Maria Jorstad of Norway was attacked by two dogs while resting on a couch at her boyfriends house. The dogs belonging to the tenants in the house were an American Pitt Bull Terrier and the other is a crossbreed of Borboel and Dobermann. At some point during the attack Maria fainted and when she awoke the dogs had gone. During the attack I thought to myself that 'now I die, now I'm done.' The pain never stopped. 

The attack occurred three weeks ago but Maria is still in the hospital suffering chronic pain, infection and eerie flashbacks. During the attack her jaw was broken, she also suffered a broken nose and damaged cartilage, she has bite marks on the neck, a deep wound in the right arm and a huge flesh wound on her left hip. She also has a number of stitches in the face, neck and body in general. - "I do not know how many stitches it is. The doctors gave up counting when they got to 100" she said. For several days after the attack she lay unconscious in the hospital.

The owner of the dogs believes the reason for the attack could be that the dogs had eaten some Ritalin, a psychiatric drug, which according to him there may have been some pills spilled on the floor. http://www.side2.no/aktuelt/article3693202.ece

EASTPOINTE MI - LIVELEAK - 2009 - SNEAK ATTACK ON 11-MONTH-OLD LEONARD LOVEJOY JR. BY THE PIT BULLTHE FAMILY RAISED AS A PUPPY



The couple tried for 17 years to have their miracle child only for it to be killed by their sweet, loving, lick-you-to-death PIT BULL.

Banish Pit Bulls, Uncle Pleads
Related to Earlier Post Of Toddler Being Mauled by Pitbull
in Eastpointe Michigan.Uncle of Toddler Reacts.

EASTPOINTE, Mich. - An uncle makes a passionate plea one day after his eleven-month-old nephew was killed by the family's pit bull.

Terrence Lovejoy pleaded with the public Tuesday not to trust pit bulls and to get rid of the dogs. His nephew died Wednesday when he was attacked by a pit bull at a house on Nevada in Eastpointe. Both parents were home and in the room.

"It was a sneak attack that the dog did on my nephew. My nephew was standing and the dog came up behind him and just grabbed him. He never growled. He never barked. He never gave any indication that there was going to be any problem," said Lovejoy.

The boy's father shot and killed the dog, but it was too late. The eleven-month-old could not be revived.

Lovejoy says the dog was aggressive outside protecting the yard, but inside the house it was a loving family pet. The couple raised the pit bull from a puppy. They had the dog for five years.

"I know there's a love affair with the pit bull. Parents, neighbors get rid of them. They're sent from Satan. ... There's no good that comes out of these dogs," Lovejoy said.

The names of the boy and his parents are not being released, but Lovejoy says the couple tried for seventeen years to have a baby and this was their miracle child. He would have turned one in May.

"We were preparing for his first birthday. We now have to prepare for a funeral," said Lovejoy.

Police believe it is possible the dog may have been jealous of the love and attention the parents gave their son and that may have triggered the deadly attack.

WARRNAMBOOL AU - A LEASHED PIT BULL ATTACKED AND KILLED A KING CHARLES SPANIEL NEAR THE WHALE VIEWING PLATFORM AT LOGANS BEACH - OWNERS OF THE PITS DISAPPEARED

The owners of a family dog viciously killed during a  PIT BULL ATTACK   are pleading for the owners of the attacking dogs to come forward.  Clinton and Ann Krause were walking near the base of the whale-viewing platform with  their 2 unleashed cavalier King Charles Spaniels along the beach on Sunday evening when one of the dogs approached 2 Pit Bulls. The Pit Bull owners struggled to control their 2 dogs when they quickly became aggressive.  One Pit managed to chomp down on one of the small spaniels killing it almost instantly.

Mr. Krause recovered his dead pet's body, and while they were trying to edeal with the death of their dog, the pit's owners left the scene and did not return.  They say that the dogs are obviously dangerous and the young couple in their early 20's do not have the skills to control it. Police requested anyone with information about the dog attack to please contact them.

STARA PAZOVA SERBIA - A FAMILY'S JAPANESE AKITA ATTACKED THEIR 4-YEAR-OLD BOY LEAVING HIM WITH MASSIVE HEAD AND NECK INJURIES- A NEIGHBOR SAVED THE CHILD

A family's  JAPANESE AKITA,  said to be a "puppy" at about 1-year-old, that played with children and had never been aggressive before.......

ATTACKED THEIR  4-YEAR-OLD BOY BITING AWAY HALF OF HIS HEAD LEAVING HIS SKULL NOTCHED BY TEETH. 

The boy had been playing with another neighbor's child and that child got picked up by his sister to go to school.  The mother had gone to the market and his brothers and sisters had gone to school except for an older sister who was watching TV and didn't hear the attack.

A next-door neighbor is credited with saving the boy.  When he went into his garden he heard a strange growl with aggressiveness from the dog's "box".  He went closer and called the dog by its name and when the dog turned toward him, he saw all the blood.  He managed to get in the "box" (which used to be a pigsty) and then he saw the child and became nauseated. The child's throat and arteries were close to being cut off and part of his head  was off.  His skull was notched with teeth.

The child underwent 6 hours of surgery and is said to be stabilized.

DEWDNEY BC CANADA - A FARMER BELIEVES A NEIGHBOR'S 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED HIS 3 COWS - MAULING ONE PREGNANT COW'S FACE AND SHREDDING HER TONGUE OUT

Dewdney farmer Hans Schmitt had to euthanize one of a trio of pregnant dairy cows that were savaged by a neighbour’s pit bulls at his property east of Mission last week. Inset, supplied photo of wounded cow.
HANS SCHMITT, a Dewdney dairy farmer, arrived at his property alongside the Nicomen Slough east of Mission early last Tuesday morning to find gates pushed ajar, blood smeared on the barn walls and 3 of his cows covered in bite marks and lacerations and they were bleeding badly.One of his pregnant cows had such serious gashes on her tongue she couldn't eat and the vet recommended she be put down.

"WHEN COWS ARE ON THE DEFENSIVE THEY PUT THEIR HEADS DOWN AND BAWL. HER TONGUE WOULD HAVE BEEN HANGING OUT AND THAT'S  PROBABLY THE FIRST THING THE DOG WOULD GRAB HOLD OF," SAID SCHMITT.

Schmitt says the cow was insured for $2,000 but was worth closer to $3,000 because she was pregnant. He found many dog prints in the mud and inside his barn and suspects  2 PIT BULLS   that belong to a neighbor.  He and his son-in-law visited the neighbor's house that morning to inspect the dogs and one was extremely aggressive and the other had blood crusted on its neck and leg.  The owner admitted that he had come in at 1am and had let his pits out for 45 minutes and wasn't sure where they had been.

THE NUTTER SAID THAT HE WOULD PUT DOWN THE MOST AGGRESSIVE PIT  THAT DAY.  BUT NEIGHBORS HAVE REPORTED SEEING HIM RIDING IN A CAR WITH HIS PIT BULLS..

Schmitt would like to see the dogs put down not just because of farm animals, but because he has grandchildren and worries about their safety. RCMP told him he had to have witnessed the dog attack for charges to be laid. There have been other dog attacks in Fraser Valley Regional District but there is no animal control bylaw in this rural area.  The most that can be offered at this time is.....

FARMERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO SHOOT ANIMALS THAT ARE HARASSING THEIR STOCK BUT THEY HAVE TO CATCH THE ATTACK IN ACTION.

PLAINFIELD NJ - 2 PIT BULL MIXES ATTACKED A MAN RIDING PAST A HOME - THE PITS HAVE RUN LOOSE AND ATTACKED BEFORE

south-ave-plainfield.jpg
John Hill, 49, of Plainfield, was riding past a home on South Avenue when  2 MALE PIT BULL MIXES  ran from a porch and attacked him. The victim  was bitten in the right calf and ankle, the right forearm, and the left buttocks. He was treated for his wounds at the scene and taken to JFK Medical Center in Edison. Police did not know his current condition.

The dogs were taken in and quarantined by the Associated Humane Societies in Newark.The AHS has taken in Blue and Chico multiple times.  The most recent was  in July when Blue bit a little girl on the leg. Before that, their encounters had all been related to the dogs running loose, he said.

AHS Officer Orlando Delgado was told by Union County sheriff’s officers at the scene that both dogs were on top of Hill when they arrived. The South Avenue house where the dogs lived has a fence, but is lacking a gate, according to Delgado.

The dogs’ owner, Gary Parks Jr., told Delgado the dogs' aggressive behavior can sometimes be activated by loud noises, such as passing trucks, or other dogs.   “They’re friendly when they’re around us, but I guess they have certain triggers that set them off.” The next step for the dogs and their owner will be decided by Plainfield.  There is a possibility that the courts could deem the dogs vicious, since they have attacked multiple people, and then order the humane society to euthanize them, something Crawford said happens “on occasion.”
