MORNINGTON PENINSULA, VICTORIA AU - A HEALTH CARE WORKER WAS MAULED BY 3 LARGE DOGS WHEN SHE STEPPED INTO THE HOME OF A STROKE PATIENT- THE DOGS ATTACKED THEIR OWNER WHEN HE CAME TO HER AID



                     (LOOKS LIKE PITS TO ME !!!)

The carer who works for Peninsula Health, had just stepped into the home of a patient who recently suffered a stroke, when she was attacked by  THREE MASTIFF CROSS DOGS.
“I heard the dogs barking and going off, just fighting, I didnt realise they were attacking anyone,” neighbour Melissa Skeats told 7 News.
The woman suffered deep bite marks on her face, upper body and ankle. She was taken to Frankston Hospital in a stable condition and had surgery on the wounds on Thursday afternoon.
The dogs also attacked their owner when he tried to pull them off the carer. He was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
The three dogs were seized shortly after the attack, but it is not yet known if they will be destroyed. 
Residents claimed the dogs had caused trouble in the neighbourhood before.
Andy Jones said one of them jumped his fence last month and killed his dog, Gypsy.
He said his pet dog was found in the mouth of one of the Mastiff cross dogs.
"She had a couple of bite marks on her."
Melissa Skeats said she was forced to increase the size of her fence because she was worried they would get in her yard and attack her son.
“It’s a concern, everyday I’m watching the backyard, making sure he's fine and the dog's fine.”
Both police and the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council are investigating the matter.

Yep, they are pit bulls, never mind some idiot pit freak who thinks up some lame label for them.

It's insane that there's any doubt whether these pit bulls will be destroyed. If Aussie authorities won't do it, I hope the neighbors will get together and take care of it.
