MERRILL WI - A FAMILY'S PIT BULL SUDDENLY CHOMPED DOWN ON THEIR 2 1/2-YEAR-OLD GIRL'S FACE BREAKING HER JAW AND LEAVING HER WITH FACIAL AND HEAD INJURIES

https://www.facebook.com/jan.m.pacheco     https://myspace.com/jannmariez/mixes





 AND NOW WE SEE THE NEXT PHASE BEGIN:      http://www.gofundme.com/ip9zd8

                               *******************************************************

NOT FOR MEDICAL BILLS...NO!....FOR CHRISTMAS TOYS FOR THIS CHILD WHO SEEMS TO HAVE EVERY TOY A 2 1/2 YEAR OLD COULD POSSIBLY NEED.

                              ********************************************************



ANOTHER ARTICLE: http://www.wjfw.com/stories.html?sku=20141212161132  - The grandmother was letting the dog out to use the bathroom and to eat and it  "broke free from her hold"  to attack the child.


Merrill police say a 2 ½-year-old girl suffered facial and head injuries after being attacked by the FAMILY'S PIT BULL.

The child will need some facial reconstruction, Capt. Carey Bennett said Friday. “It is just a horrible situation.”

The girl's mother, Janabelle Pacheco, said her daughter, Liliahna, is expected to be hospitalized at least through the weekend.

The attack took place at the child's home Tuesday afternoon while she was being cared for by her grandmother, Pacheco said.

The girl was sitting on a foot stool, her grandmother was putting the dog in its kennel and suddenly the dog attacked the girl, BITING SO FIRMLY THAT HER JAW WAS BROKEN, the mother said.





It is horrible. She is so tiny and so beautiful. It is so tragic,” Pacheco said. “It can happen. Now I don't want another dog again.”

The dog, named Ginger, was nine years old and had been with the family since her father died in 2012, Pacheco said.

I got her from dad as a present when she was a puppy,” the mother said. "MY DAUGHTER AND THE DOG WERE BEST FRIENDS.  THEY SLEPT TOGETHER."

The dog has been euthanized at the request of the family, Bennett said.

THIS DOG ALSO SHOWS UP ON THE MOTHER'S FACEBOOK PAGE. NOTE THE SPIKED COLLAR.





THE MOTHER OF THIS CHILD WAS APPARENTLY TRYING TO FIND ANOTHER HOME FOR THIS PIT BULL .....AND THE HOME  MUST BE ANIMAL FREE AND NO CHILDREN UNDER 10.

I NEED a home! Must be other animal free and no children under 10 yrs old. Beautiful sweetie! Ginger 7-8 yr old female. Not spayed. Never any pups.








Janabelle Pacheco I have a pit bull her & my daughter are best friends.

Janabelle Pacheco It's a gamble with any pet my dear. It's about being a responsible pet owner. Get your mind right. If raised right and you teach your children right from wrong when dealing w pets you should have no problems w any breed dog. This pit was my fathers who was tragically killed while walking. She had no where to go but to my house. Thankfully she was introduced to my daughter since birth. They both are very much in love & both very loved.

The mother is involved with a facebook group for the Chippewa Valley Wisconsin Pit Bull Rescue, and recently posted this photo, as well as a photo of her daughter with what appears to be the same dog (the color and the shape of the ears is very similar):

Soooo.....has the dog been in the family, or is it a "foster"? And why are they fostering a dog that they KNOW isn't suitable for kids under 10?

I've been following it. Very fishy story all around where they may be harboring the actual culprit. And after seeing the media take the bait on the fake "service dog" Santa story, I know that some people aren't above exploiting their kids for profit or donations, while other victims go without anything except contempt.

After the two cases in Iowa where the parents lied to protect their pits when children had to be hospitalized, (and probably many more cases that didn't make it to the media), I'm getting skeptical about all of these stories from the parents. At least this time, they had the good sense to put the dog down instead of shuffling it through the "rescue" system to maul another day. But I still can't fathom how someone could be aware of a dog not being good with kids and still keep it around your toddler.

Nanny dog lie supporter after another child gets attacked, with her friends who actually claimed the ridiculous lie that PIT (fighting pit) Bulls weren't bred for fighting, but search and rescue. The lies are unbelievable and they feed their kids to these dogs

I wish someone would leave a comment on that news FB page linking to what happened to Janabelle's child

Like I said, who knows how many pit bulls and rottweilers are still in that house to greet this child when she gets out of the hospital? Someone who is so delusional that they believe a lie like this and help spread it around is a danger

She was joining in with a mob there blaming the victim and blaming the media when another child was attacked by a pit bull

Janabelle Pacheco I have a pit bull her & my daughter are best friends.

Your daughter is beautiful, sad that you're willing to take a gamble with her safety. No matter how small or great the gamble, it's still a gamble none the less. For your sweet little girl's sake I hope the odds are in your favor!

And yes, all of this new information probably should be forwarded to the authorities. I don't think she was running the pit bull rescue, but there's no doubt that she KNEW that her pit (or foster pit, who knows what was really going on) was aggressive and was trying to pawn it off and make it someone else's problem. Too bad it came too late for this little girl.

That Chippewa Valley Pit Bull Rescue is sketchy at best, and I'm sure it's a safe bet that ALL of these pit "rescues" are the same.

These are some examples of the pits up for adoption on their page - coming soon to a neighborhood near you!!

"i hope this ok .. but i need to find a forever home for my beloved pooch shes 4 yrs old i have had her since she was just a pup ..she was great untill two years ago she became unpredicatble around strange people people she knows are fine but strangers ..its iffy weather shes going lick you or bite your face .. she hates cats she will kill it and bunny rabbits are chew toys birds and squirrels are fun to chase shes really unpredictable around other dogs REALLY ! shes been an only pet because of this."

"There is a 4 year old pit in Richmond wisconsin badly needing a home! 2 years ago she nipped a toddler leaving small mark. She has always been raised around kids so her owners blew it off as a fluke. Recently her son and his friend were playing toy guns in the yard and the maya grabbed a hold of the boys pants and ripped them resulting in a small mark on the child's leg. The child's parents have reported her and now maya is on death row unless she finds a home! Her family is devistated and doing all they can to re home her. She did not attack these children. She is a sweety and deserves life."

My God. After reading that. This summer still she was piling on to "pit bull attacks child" news reports with all the other pit bull advocacy liars, defending these fighting dogs and making up stories about them, and blaming the kid.

By November she was trying to unload the pit bull and get rid of it in a no kid and no pet home because she knew it was violent

And she just let the pit bull attack her kid.

Then she tries to put the blame on all dogs. It's an all dog problem, says Jan.

Does she even realize that she has been used by the pit bull people and that they lied to her to get her to have a pit and defend pit bulls?

How many attacks on their own children and family members are other pit bull advocates hiding? Lucky for the child that people found out about this. The child might be protected from another pit bull in the future, maybe. Maybe the grandmother will stick up for her grandchild. She wasn't in the past but maybe she will now.

Another thing that bothers the heck out of me is when Janabelle Pacheco states the pit should not be around a child under 10. YOU KNOW...I CAN JUST SEE THAT PIT, OR ANY PIT, GETTING READY TO ATTACK AND THEN STOPPING HALF WAY AND THINKING...."THAT CHILD MUST BE 10 YEARS AND 6 MONTHS OLD SO I SHOULD NOT ATTACK IT." In my opinion this is absurd and shows her lack of common sense.

I really didn't think that grandpa would have been that out of it and that dangerous to get a pit and to let that pit bull anywhere near his daughter or granddaughter

But then I'd be wrong

If grown men aren't sensible enough to protect the women and children from fighting dogs, I really think there is no hope

Anonymous said...

What bothers me about it is that she praises the relationship between this pit and her toddler in all of those facebook posts. But then a month ago, lists it as being unsuitable for a family with children under the age of 10. Something tells me that this isn't the first time that monster snapped and went after her daughter.

Anonymous said...

Sad fact is that her father created this problem and what he did by getting that pit bull, did that to his granddaughter

What made this man think that a fighting breed would be ok around his daughter, wife, granddaughter?

Was he telling his daughter these lies about nanny dogs?

Where were the other men when this was going on? Didn't anyone have some common sense as this headed to its inevitable conclusion in this attack?

AND if you look through those pictures, they were letting this pit bull run around loose

The neighbors are very lucky their child didn't get attacked

I wonder what's been going on there

I truly believe its the owners, and I clearly prove that with my two "Bully Breeds". Get right ppl!

Totally. It just is ridiculous. She was willing to hand over the danger to someone else. She didn't care about another person's kid.

I really thought, well she is in her twenties, listens to a lot of junk she's hearing and being fed, and doesn't have the intellectual capacity to realize that she's being used and lied to.

But HER FATHER, a grown man, who should have known better, got that pit bull for her and this is what was sure to happen

Anonymous said...

Anon 8;08 I'm not even believing what I'm reading. These people know these dogs are killing other pets and aggressive with people and biting people but they're still selling them!

"its iffy weather shes going lick you or bite your face"

Isn't the usual junk they repeat over and over "my pit bull will lick you to death"

People need to really watch out when their neighbors have pit bulls, no matter what they say or how ok the dog seems to be. They are perfectly happy to let their pit bulls kill their neighbor's pets and kids, and make excuses for the pit bull.

It's a given that if there's pit bulls around, people have to make sure they cannot have any access at all ever to their pets and kids. Don't trust them for a second.

Chippewa Valley Pit Bull Rescue. A death waiting to happen, attacks already have. These people need to be held responsible. Wisconsin, be aware.

So if the visiting child's parents hadn't reported it (thank you parents) these pit bull owners would have gone on letting their pit bull attack their own kid!

And now Chippewa Valley Pit Bull Rescue wants to save the dangerous dog to hand on the problem so next time it KILLS a child

So what animal control will actually give them this known dangerous dog?

This is attempted murder territory, seriously

Santa, please bring some sense to people because they don't even care about children's lives any more

It's true, it's worshipping at the altar of pit bull

Decatur AL livin nt to 4 pits said...

Jan Pacheco states her father was killed in an accident while out walking I believe. This may have happened before this baby girl was born. But he knew how dangerous pit bulls and rottweilers are. And more than that, the grandmother that was babysitting the day of the attack knew. These people just don't know how lucky they are. How much more would it have taken to kill this baby? a quarter of an inch to the left? an eighth of an inch more to the right on a vein? How much more pressure applied from the strong jaws to pop her spine? And would it have been worth it just to worship a breed of dog?

Anonymous said...

I don't think that Chippewa Rescue is anything more than a Facebook group where people post to pawn off unwanted and dangerous pits.

I could be wrong, but I don't think they operate an actual shelter, though I do think there is sort of a loose network of people involved who will foster or transport the dogs.

I think that makes it worse - no regulation or oversight (not like that helps much anyway, no one EVER seems to be held accountable when something goes terribly wrong). It's just a place to make dangerous child maulers and pet killers disappear into other homes in other neighborhoods.

It's sick. Absolutely sick.

OMG......OMG......this is a scandal. I was all ready to only say there are so many breeds that can live peacefully with a toddler, but....WTF. I'm seriously not processing this right now.

Jan Marie Pacheco says " I own a pit bull a red nose and I ALSO have a Rottweiler both pure bred"




But the purebred red nose pit bull attacked her child

But the pit nutters say that it's only the badly bred, pit bull mixes that are attacking, right?

That was in her response to a news story that reported an attacking dog as being a pit bull. She thinks they aren't supposed to report on those stories, but hide them. Now I know why.

I must say that I don't feel comfortable sometimes looking at other people's facebook or MySpace family pictures. That being said...they put it out there for the world to see...so I get the full picture now after looking at every picture. So this family is probably a good example of the "USUAL PIT BULL/VICIOUS DOG OWNER" where a small child or elderly person gets 'suddenly' mauled. No fenced in yard that I could see so they were chained up when outside. Inside there were at least a young son a few years older along with the baby girl that became the victim. The large dogs in a small cramped home and this "Responsible Pit Bull Owner" goes on comment sections after another child is severely mauled and makes remarks like she is the world's authority on raising dogs! It's a reality show...It's pictures for myspace and facebook....It ain't real!!! Everytime I see a fur mommie spouting all her memorized lines of knowledge about being in love with her dogs and its all in how they are raised....I WILL REMEMBER ALL THESE PICTURES THAT I'VE JUST SEEN. WHAT'S THE CHANCES THAT MOST ALL THESE FUR MOMMIES' LOOK SOMETHING LIKE THIS.....BOTTOM LINE....WHO IS PAYING THE BILLS FOR THIS ATTACK ?????

I HATE to be so cynical, I really do. My heart breaks for these babies who get mauled because they don't have a choice or a voice when their parents decide to ignore all good sense and get a fighting dog.

I don't have a problem with raising funds to help the innocent victims. BUT I want to know that the parents won't go right back out and do this again with another pit! I want them to go back and tell people that they were WRONG, and that is isn't simply "how you raise them".

I guess that's too much to hope for in most cases. They put their kids in harm's way for the sake of a mauler, and then let other people pick up the pieces when things go wrong.

Instead of taking responsibility for her own BAD choices, she's already making excuses for the dog on the WAOW Facebook comments.

I completely agree.

They put themselves out on news story after news story attacking the victim of these fighting breeds, lying about the incidents, they state things to other people that are completely untrue that they get handed by the dog fighters breeding these things and encourage people to get dangerous dogs and let them have access to kids and pets and neighbors, they attack anyone who states the truth or challenges their lies with either disgusting insults or more lies. They also lie about where they get this information- pit bull promoters making money off the dogs.

When they choose to accept the public job of pit bull promoter and pit bull business tool (advocate) then they take on a public role that is risky to the public. When their lies are exposed and they are so willing to cover for these breeds that they will hurt their own children with them (and other people's children and family members, including pets) then their hypocrisy and lies need to be exposed.

Otherwise this chains of lies and attacks just means more deaths and injuries.

Anonymous said...

Could someone with a FB account post a link to this on other victim advocate sites, including DB's facebook entry for this news story?

I am sure there are people out there who have posted on victim attack news stories and gotten attacked by this woman with her lies and her friends in pit bull rescue that join in.

People also need to know what this Chippewa Valley Wisconsin pit bull rescue Rescue is up to, because there's a murder on the horizon with that gang. They are redealing known dangerous dogs.

A history of endangering others and disregard for law.

These are the pit bull "advocates" that people are taking advice from, and they don't even know the history of the people telling them lies and encouraging them to endanger their own families with fighting breeds

I would hope that child services is pursuing this incident with an investigation.

If you search in quotations "Jan Marie Zempel" (she now goes by Pacheco, but that is her birth name) there are multiple court appearances
They seem to need a log in to access. Do any WI people have access?

I can't believe with a child in the hospital for the weekend that this and she is out on comments pages defending fighting breeds

But she has a history of questionable behavior. I hope authorities are going to look into this more closely.

2011???

Oh her story is developing more holes as time goes on

She needs to be confronted with these things and provide some answers especially as she is panhandling and playing on people's sympathy. If they reward her and she gets positive attention, she'll do it again. She needs to tell people who are donating why and how this will never happen again, or are there no plans to prevent the same mistake?

This is HER FAULT. She is responsible for that child's injuries. This happened because of her negligence. This was no accident.

What kind of mother wouldn't be glued to her daughter's bedside in the hospital for the weekend? She's out posting pit bull defense moves instead? Is that Chippewa Valley pit bull rescue encouraging her to do this?

So either Ginger the pit bull had attacked, possibly killed a neighbor's pet or attacked someone in the town back in 2011 or one of the kids but not as bad as now

or she's been taking in foster care biters from the pit bull rescue she is involved with

there is a history of endangerment here

If Wisconsin authorities don't look into this, she's going to put this child in harm's way again

She is arrogant but very stupid

Where is the husband or boyfriend? Where are the other grandparents? They should be calling in authorities because she needs to be supervised by the court. Does he even have a brain here to step in and prevent her from hurting his daughter? He hasn't so far.

More of the story is coming out.

Jan (Janabelle) Pacheco didn't tell the truth to the reporter.

Her father gave her the pit bull BEFORE he died in 2012

I wonder if there weren't complaints from his neighbors, so he dumped the aggressive dog with her. Sounds like she got Ginger the pit bull in 2011 and was instantly trying to find a home for this aggressive pit bull to dump with someone else.

Jan's friends are trying to defend the pit bull of course. And blaming Grandma. JAN KNEW THIS DOG WAS AGGRESSIVE.

" 10 hrs

Kasi Pagel The dog was apparently displeased with the babysitting grandmother putting her in her kennel and snapped. This family is already grieving enough, I'm sure. They're fully aware that their pit bull destroyed their gorgeous daughters face and that's something they have to live with and beat themselves up over for the rest of their lives. They don't need the media circus in there making this just another pit bull story and making their family feel worse. Jan and her dad got Ginger as a puppy and raised her. Before her dad died in 2012 he gave Ginger to his daughters family, since they were close with her."

Kaci Pagel

The lunacy among twenty something year old BAD PARENTS in Merrill WI is astonishing.

Are there any real adults there watching out for the kids?

Jan Marie Pacheco sent her friend Kaci Pagel to chastise the people who pointed out the obvious- that fighting dogs shouldn't be around children.

But these two fools have already that the 2 1/2 year old child that Jan got put into the hospital with her aggressive fighting breed has decided this. If that do were still alive, Pacheco would put it back in bed with her child to attack again.

These girls worship pit bulls, more than they love their children.

Kaci Pagel "to his daughters family, since they were close with her. This little girl and her dog Ginger were best friends. They slept together, went everywhere together, did everything together. The pictures of them together since birth show what an amazing friendship they had. And right now, all this sweet little 2 year old girl wants to do is get out of the hospital and go home to snuggle Ginger. </3 When she gets home her best friend won't even be waiting at the door for her. How heartbreaking. She's so young and doesn't understand. She's forgiven her best friend and just wants to go home and snuggle her.
And for the record; since 1992, the breed most involved in fatal attacks has been the Rottweiler, not the pit bull. It is at least a HALF MILLION TIMES MORE LIKELY that a pit bull will be killed by a HUMAN than the other way around. Every year, more than 2,000 children in the U.S. are killed by their parents or guardians either through abuse or neglect. A child is 800 times more likely to be killed by their adult caretaker than by a pit bull. Considering that there were an estimated 53,000,000 dogs in the U.S., and assuming that pit bulls make up 10% of that population, there would be approximately 5.3 million pit bulls in our society. In 2000, 13 pit bulls were involved in 8 fatal attacks. That is roughly ONE dog out of 204,000 - or .000385% of the pit bull population."

OMG.

You just have to see this. This needs a screenshot.

Her friends are trying to defend her by putting up something like this.

Jana was advertising on Wausau Garage Sale to dump this aggressive pit bull on someone else.

This dog has obviously attacked other pets and children before

The truth just keeps emerging and emerging and it's not what Jan Pacheco said

Amanda Wade Back in early October, the dog was growling at the little girl...that's when she tried to re home it. It's now mid-December.....so sad, praying for a speedy recovery! She's adorable!

Kasi Pagel My guess is that this dog snapped because the babysitting grandma was trying to put it in a kennel, for what reason I'm unsure. But Lili was sitting on a bench paying no mind to Ginger when she attacked her. This little girl and her dog Ginger were best friends. They slept together, went everywhere together, did everything together. The pictures of them together since birth show what an amazing friendship they had. And right now, all this sweet little 2 year old girl wants to do is get out of the hospital and go home to snuggle Ginger. </3 When she gets home her best friend won't even be waiting at the door for her. How heartbreaking. She's so young and doesn't understand. She's forgiven her best friend and just wants to go home and snuggle her.
And for the record; my best friends daughter was attacked in the face by a black lab. ANY dog can snap. I'm sure this dog snapped because the babysitting grandma was trying to put it in a kennel, for what reason I'm not sure. Lili was minding her own business, not even paying attention to the dog when she got attacked.

(Then there is this brain trust responding to this idiocy from these 20 something year old girls. Uh, Rich, the victim is 2 1/2 years old. Her mother and her friends just made all those stories up to try to protect the vicious dog-


Rich Van Horn- Hadn't even thought of that, how even though the dog hurt her she still forgave it. I'd be the same way, just wanting to get home and make up.)

....Soooooo, if she goes ahead and gets another pit, is this grounds enough for her kid to be taken by CPS?

By the shade of Colby WHY would anyone put a bigass bulldog in a toddler's bed?

Jan is apparently pregnant.

So since she's unsuccessfully tried to rehome this aggressive pit since at least 2011, I guess she was planning to bring a newborn baby into a home with a dog that was already growling at her toddler, and that she KNEW was NOT good with children.

At what point does this become willful and reckless endangerment? Is it a "tragic accident" when someone is well aware of the risks and warning signs and chooses to put their kids in harm's way anyway? If the parents left a loaded gun on the table and the little girl shot herself, they would be facing charges. So WHY ON EARTH do these people who harbor aggressive dogs with a hair trigger get a pass?

I wish that CPS and the police would start asking a few questions. SOMEONE needs to be held accountable.

Poor baby. Poor babies.

Adding a screenshot of this WAOW NEWS comment, as I think this is one of the most important pieces of evidence to prove that the parents KNEW the dog was getting aggressive with their daughter.

Also important to note is that one of the 3 "Likes" on this comment is from Janabelle herself, she did not dispute the information that was given by her friend.

This is a complete FAILURE on the part of the "adults" in this child's life. Yes, they're coming out in force to defend the dog now, but these little cracks in their story show that many of them were aware of a problem and did NOTHING to prevent this child from being harmed.
