FALLS TOWNSHIP PA - A CANE CORSO ATTACKED ITS OWNER INSIDE HIS HOME LEAVING HIM WITH SEVERE FACIAL TRAUMA

FALLS — A Falls man was seriously injured Tuesday when his own dog bit him in the face, township police said.

Police were called to the 300 block of Trenton Road at 4:55 p.m. and found a female 2-year-old Italian mastiff, also known as a CANE CORSO, had bitten its owner in the face, said Lt. Hank Ward.
The man suffered severe face trauma and was taken to St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown.
It is unknown if the dog was provoked or what circumstances led to the attack, which occurred inside the house. There were no children present.
Ward said family members called 911. He said the township's animal control officer is investigating; the dog remains with the family.
An Italian mastiff can grow to 110 pounds, according to an animal website.
No further information was released because the injured man suffered facial trauma leaving him unable to talk to police, Ward said.

Heaven help us, it really is time to stop wasting police time and resources on nutters who are attacked by their own pit mixes. Save them from their mauler, they just come home to it so police have to save them again another day. What a waste of tax dollars and what a useless hazard to inflict on police.

Wow! Unable to talk! That's the kind of pet I WANT!

The family must suffer from the same mental illness as the victim. Why anyone would allow a beast like that back into their home, is beyond me.

How utterly insane is that? Would any normal family want to hold onto the 100 + lb monster that ripped the face off of it's actual owner? Any bets on another family member getting mauled?

When (not if) this mauler attacks again, police really should refuse to respond. I don't like my tax dollars being wasted saving people who are bent on doing self-euthanasia by gripping mauler dog.

I'll take that bet.

I'd like to add another bet. If this cane corso gets a dirt nap, want to bet they'll get another one?
