SAINT MICHEL QC CANADA - A LOOSE PIT BULL ATTACKED A MAN AND HIS 5-MONTH-OLD PUPPY "MARLEY" AS THEY WERE TAKING A WALK IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD - BRAVE HERO FOUGHT FOR THEIR LIVES FINALLY PICKING THE PIT UP AND SLAMMING IT TO THE GROUND AND CHOKING IT!!!
A St. Michel man is demanding his borough ban pit bulls after he and his five-month-old puppy were attacked last week.
Last Thursday Carmine Loffredi was walking his dog Marley down a street in his neighbourhood when a loose pit bull charged them.
"Once he saw my dog that's when he actually crossed and lunged toward myself and the dog. I picked up my dog to save her from actually being attacked by the pit bull but the pit bull was so vicious that he jumped on to me," said Loffredi.
The young dog was bitten eight times on the leg and at least once in the chest, then the dog turned on Loffredi.
"THE SHEER POWER THAT THIS ANIMAL HAD KNOCKED ME DOWN TWICE BELIEVE IT OR NOT," SAID LOFFREDI. "THERE WAS NOT MUCH I COULD DO. I PUNCHED, I KICKED. HE JUST KEPT COMING BACK. HE LOCKED ONTO MY HAND AND WAS GOING TO SHRED ME TO PIECES SWINGING HIS HEAD FROM ONE SIDE TO ANOTHER. FINALLY I PICKED HIM UP OVER MY HEAD AND SLAMMED THE ANIMAL DOWN TO THE GROUND AND KNOCKED THE WIND OUT OF HIM FOR A SECOND THEN I STARTED CHOCKING THE PIT BULL.
A neighbour showed up with a chain and the dog was secured.
Loffredi was taken to hospital for stitches and a tetanus shot, but with a daycare down the street Loffredi wants the pit bull put down and wants the borough to ban the breed.
ENTERS A PIT NUTTER !!!!!!!!!
The Executive Director of the SPCA says the breed isn't the problem, but the behaviour is.
"At one point it was German Shepherd dogs that were considered to be potentially dangerous or inherently dangerous," said Nicholas Gilman. "Then it was Rottweilers, then it was Doberman Pinschers. For the last 20 years or so it's been pit bulls."
Hundreds of pit bulls are adopted annually from the SPCA.
"We just don't have any more problems with pit bulls at the Montreal SPCA than we do with any other breed," said Gilman.
He said one to two per cent of all dogs, no matter the breed, are potentially dangerous.
_____________END THE NUTTER SPEAKING_________________________________
Loffredi has filed a police report and is now waiting for the borough to take action.
In the meantime, he still has not received an apology from the dog's owner.
