(WLFI) – Carroll County deputies are searching for a group of pit bulls which attacked two women and their owner Thursday evening.
Sheriff Tobe Leazenby tells News 18 it happened around 7:30 p.m. when two friends were walking and jogging together on County Road 225 East. That’s southeast of Cutler and 8 miles west of Burlington.
He says as they went by a home where four pit bulls lived, the dogs chased them into a field where they attacked and mauled the women. The owner of the dogs was also attacked when he tried to contain his dogs. Leazenby says they were fighting for their lives.
A woman driving by saw what happened and drove into the field where the women were and got them into her car and called 911.
The intersection of State Road 75 and County Road 600 South was closed briefly so a helicopter could land and transport a 20-year-old woman to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with critical injuries. A 19-year-old woman, as well as the 50-year-old male owner, were taken to IU Health Arnett in Indianapolis with unknown injuries.
At this time, no names have been released.
Leazenby says one dog is already dead and his deputies are actively looking for the other three which will be shot on sight.
He says his deputies have dealt with the dogs in the past, mostly for being allowed to roam without a leash. He adds there may have been one bite incident about two years ago, but nothing this serious.
A complete report will be sent to the prosecutor’s office for possible criminal charges.

Finally, some sense " deputies are actively looking for the other three which will be shot on sight."

A little more of this, please, and a little less concern that poor misunderstood pibbles was provoked in some way and needs counseling, rehabilitation, rehoming and a chance to maul again.

But, wait, all dogs bite (still waiting for the sarcasm font to be installed).

Maybe this owner will be a new convert?

How many more mangled bodies before we start outlawing pit bulls? We've got Michigan trying to end breed discrimination, because as we all know, it ain't right to keep pibble down. We have two young, healthy women out exercising, and they are brought down by 4 worthless pit bulls. Why? Because degenerate people that don't give a damn about anyone else, get to own pit bulls, be irresponsible because there's no BSL, and say things to the media like, "My pit bull has never been aggressive before."

Yeah, but when a pit bull finally is aggressive, all it takes is once for someone to get life flighted, lose a limb, or their life. It's so much easier and better for everyone to PREVENT pit bull attacks, than it is to clean up these HORRIBLE messes.

At least in this attack the owner got to experience first hand what it's like to be on the receiving end of his irresponsibility.

This is typical of the rural mentality I see daily. Somehow the road in front of a property becomes part of the yard. Dog owners will whine they can't afford to fence in their entire property. duh. There is also the game called my dog was on the porch.
My neighbors two non pit type dogs have managed to drive all foot traffic off our road. It's also the reason we no longer go for walks.
I have watched my neighbors dogs menace countless joggers, bikes and people just out on foot and yet none seem to call. It's only a crisis when someone gets bit.
Best guess, these dogs have a long history of unreported menacing behavior beyond what AC is aware of.
Who doesn't report a dangerous dog harassing them. Usually other dog owners.

Of course all of the comments on this update,

http://www.wthr.com/story/30174917/carroll-county-women-mauled-in-dog-attack-graphic-images

are trying to blame the owners.

I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND NUTTERS that go to awful, horrible, grotesque news stories of maulings by pit bulls, and try to talk about how it's not a breed problem.

YES IT IS A BREED PROBLEM! They know it, and that's why they show up to every single story trying to educate everyone else, INSTEAD OF ACCEPTING THE REALITY THAT PIT BULLS ARE A HORRIBLE BREED!

WHO CARES IF THERE ARE 100 MILLION GOOD PIT BULLS? IT DOES NOT CANCEL OUT THE HUNDREDS OF TERRIBLE PIT BULLS!

DUH! DUH! DUUUUUUUHHHHHH!
