Captain Mike Montgomery says the dog was very "agressive and vicious" when officers arrived at the house, near the Lake City Plant.

Deputies were able to place a tourniquet on the Pennington's left leg and get Emergency Medical Crews into the scene.  Pennington was transported to a local hospital and her spouse was located and contacted about the incident.

The dog was described as an approximately 3-year-old, 110-pound, male, American Bulldog that the owners had had for about one year.  According to Independence Animal Control, the dog had bitten two other people in the past.

Jackson County Animal Control has taken custody of the dog’s remains and will be forwarding them on to the Missouri State laboratory for testing of possible rabies infection.

It's NOT rabies! For normal dogs, yes, consider rabies. For an American Bulldog that's bitten twice in the past, IT'S A VICIOUS DOG!

I guess the price to be paid for getting a dangerous dog is, your limbs, your scalp, and sometimes even your life. ARE THEY WORTH IT?!

I think not, but I'm a sane person.
