BROOKLYN NY - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL CHARGED FROM ACROSS THE STREET TO ATTACK A BELOVED BLACK LAB GRIPPING ITS THROAT AND TOSSING IT AROUND LIKE A RAG DOLL ALL CAUGHT ON SURVEILLANCE!!!!





UPDATE:  FIONA, A BEAUTIFUL BLACK LAB, HAS DIED 

A Brooklyn neighborhood was torn apart this weekend by a vicious dog attack that was caught on surveillance video. As CBS 2′s Steve Langford reported, a black lab named Fiona, a precious family pet, was attacked by a PIT BULL from across the street. Surveillance video of the attack shows the lab being thrown around like a rag doll, its throat then gripped by the pit bull’s teeth.
“I saw this thing charging directly at my dog for no reason,” said Anita Bolognese. “I love her with all my heart. My children adore her, we all love her.”
Bolognese struggled to describe the moment the violent attack shattered the calm of the Bay Ridge street. Her husband was no less grief-stricken.
“My wife and my kids, it’s heartbreaking,” he said.
A contractor working nearby who happened to also be an animal control officer rushed to help subdue the pit bull, Langford reported.
“I got the hose and just started shooting water in the mouth, let her choke a little so she would release. Eventually she released, but she had already done some damage,” he said.
“It’s really serious and it’s not likely she’s going to survive at this point,” the veterinarian said.
The owners of the pit bull told Langford they don’t want to discuss the attack.
“I don’t want to talk to you. (Why not?) Because I dont want to,” the man said.
Neighbors said they live in fear of the dog.
“My son told me he didn’t want my grandkids to come over because they like to play in the yard and he’s deathly afraid of that dog attacking his kids,” said one neighbor.
“My beautiful dog right now is in the hospital fighting for her life,” said Bolognese.
Bolognese said the police told her family nothing could be done about the attack.
An attorney suggested it is a civil matter, not a criminal one.

OK Folks, I HATE PIT BULLS AND THE PEOPLE WHO OWN THEM. A DOG LIKE THIS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN NEIGHBORHOODS. THAT OLD MAN COULD NOT CONTROL THAT MONSTER IF HE TRIED. NOR COULD THE WOMAN. WHAT IS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS? IF THIS NUT CASE WAS PRANCING AROUND WITH A TIGER AND THE TIGER GOT LOOSE AND RAN ACROSS THE STREET AND ATTACKED ANOTHER ANIMAL, WOULD THERE BE ANY LAWS AGAINST THAT?

Nothing can be done?! Surely there is SOMEthing. A little poison meatball, I'm sure the stupid pit bull would eat that. I'd do whatever it would take to make sure it didn't attack again. And waiting around for the mentally challenged pit owners to be responsible is not an option.

Let's see, not a criminal matter? Really? Letting a mauler run wild, check. Letting a mauler attack another animal, check. Not subduing your own pit bull, check. Not owning up to the responsibility of what your pit bull did to another living thing, check.

Yet, dog fighting is a felony. If this isn't allowing your pit bull to fight other dogs, I don't know what is? Since when is a felony not a crime? Oh, I know. Since Pit Bull Nutters took over.

Breed specific legislation would fix all of this. But no, we must protect crazy people that are drawn to dangerous dogs, because they have more rights and stuff.
