CARMEL ME - 2 PIT BULLS PUSHED AN AIR CONDITIONER OUT OF A WINDOW AND ESCAPED THEN CAME UPON A NEIGHBOR'S DECK AND MAULED THEIR 7-YEAR-OLD GERMAN SHEPHERD
CARMEL, Maine —TWO PIT BULLS were euthanized Monday after they escaped from their owner’s house on Route 2 on Saturday and attacked a neighbor’s dog, according to authorities.
Jack, the 7-year-old German shepherd that was attacked, had 14 bites from the pair of pit bulls, said owner Heather Babcock, who lives with her husband and two young daughters next door to the owner of the pit bulls.
“This has been a problem that has been going on for quite some time,” Babcock said Monday morning before the dogs were removed.
The pit bulls apparently pushed an air conditioner out of a window to escape and attacked Jack at around 9 p.m. Saturday.
“They came up on my deck and just mauled him,” Babcock said.
Her 13-year-old daughter was home alone at the time of the attack.
“She went out with a broom” to break up the dogs, Babcock said. “We’re lucky nothing else happened.”
Babcock added that another time the dogs had escaped from their home, she found her 9-year-old daughter in the backyard fearing for her life.
“She was up on the picnic table,” she said, adding, “Somebody is going to get hurt.”
