MACON, BIBB COUNY GA - 3 PIT BULL MIXES AND A ROTTWEILER GOT INTO A FIGHT INSIDE A HOME AND WHEN THE OWNER TRIED TO RESTRAIN THEM SHE WAS ATTACKED

A dog fight ended with them being Tased in a Vineville Avenue home Thursday night in Macon.
According to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report, Carrie Woronick, a witness to the incident, told a deputy the dogs bit the home's owner Priscilla Kitchens.
Woronick, according to the incident report, said three of them were pitbull mixes, and the other was a Rottweiler. Kitchens was about to take two of the dogs outside when Woronick came back inside with the other two.
The dogs Woronick were bringing in got into a fight with the dogs Kitchens were bringing out, according to the report. Kitchens tried to restrain the dogs, but two of them bit her in the legs and arms. Woronick told the deputy she didn't remember which dogs they individually had.
Macon-Bibb Animal Control, along with another deputy, arrived on scene. The deputies went inside, according to the report, and one pulled out a Taser. When the other deputy opened the back door, two of the dogs were biting another's neck and legs.
One deputy deployed the Taser on two dogs to stop biting the other one, the report stated. Kitchens told deputies the same story while getting treated in an ambulance which transported her to a local hospital.
Animal control officials apprehended the dogs.

JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA - A 9-YEAR-OLD PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPIL IS FIGHTING FOR HER LIFE IN HOSPITAL AFTER SHE WAS MAULED BY A PACK OF PIT BULLS

UPDATE:  http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Girls-leg-amputated-after-dogs-attack-her-20150601

According to her father, Vusi Khumalo, the Grade 4 learner was mauled by 3 PIT BULLS while returning to her home in Rosettenville, in the south of Johannesburg, after school on Monday, May 25, Southern Courier reported.
“When my daughter came home, she opened the gate and then locked it. That’s when the dogs attacked her,” he said.
Khumalo said people watched helplessly, as they were scared to help, until a neighbour, Mkhululi Nsibande, jumped the fence and helped the little girl. “I couldn’t stand there and watch her being attacked by these dogs. While outside I spotted a police van, I asked them to help. They were scared to go into the property. I took a branch of a tree and a hammer, jumped the fence and rescued the girl,” Mkhululi said.
She was later taken to Chris Hani Baragwanath. Khumalo’s landlord, Patricia Kabongo said she was baffled how the dogs escaped from her locked garage. “I wasn’t home most of the day… my dogs are always locked in the garage. Someone must have opened the garage door. I have many tenants, and no one is prepared to tell me the truth,” she said.
According to Khumalo, an officer at the Moffatview Police Station on Wednesday refused to open a case of negligence, as “he was not at the scene when the incident took place”. But another officer later promised to look into the matter.
“My daughter is in theatre, her leg is about to be amputated and I’m being told her kidneys are failing,” Khumalo said.

BLUFFTON SC - A PIT BULL JERKED AWAY FROM THE WOMAN WALKING IT AND ATTACKED A GREYHOUND BEING TAKEN ON ITS USUAL WALK BY ITS OWNER - "RINGO" DIED FROM HIS SEVERE INJURIES

A greyhound attacked by a dog in Bluffton Park on May 20 died of his injuries two days after the incident, the greyhound's owner confirmed Tuesday.
John Horishny was walking Ringo along Able Street on their usual route around Lake Isabelle when they came across the dog, Horishny said. It was identified in a Bluffton Police Department report as a black pitbull.
The pitbull severely wounded Ringo, and the 8-year-old greyhound died of his injuries Friday morning.
Horishny had attempted to avoid the pitbull by walking on the opposite side of Able Street. In the few encounters he had with the dog, it would start to get aggressive as soon as it saw another dog, he said. Usually the pitbull's owner, a larger man, could control it, Horishny said. But on May 20, the woman walking the pitbull dropped the leash when the dog tugged, Horishny said.
Horishny futilely attempted to pull Ringo from the pitbull as it bit the greyhound, then he focused on grabbing the attacking dog. The woman walking the dog only tried to regain control of it using verbal commands, he said.
Eventually, Horishny grabbed the pitbull's collar, allowing Ringo to run home. Horishny gave the dog back to the woman, then ran off to find Ringo.
He found Ringo on the porch, covered in blood.
Some of the bites had exposed bone on one of Ringo's legs, Horishny said. Other puncture wounds went deep into muscle tissue. A bite to Ringo's face had pushed a tooth into his muzzle and caused him to bleed from his nose and mouth.
"He was bleeding from everywhere," Horishny said. "The injuries were unbelievable."
Horishny rushed his dog to a local veterinarian, where Ringo underwent almost five hours of surgery Thursday. After returning home, he called police.
Police interviewed both Horishny and the pitbull's owner, who said she hadn't been paying attention when the dog got away from her. She was cited with an animal running at large, but the dog was not taken from the home, according to the police report.
Horishny, fearing that similar attacks could occur with other dogs or even small children, posted about his dog's injuries on a Bluffton Park neighborhood Facebook page. He said many of the people who saw the post called or emailed the police department about the dog and their concerns.
Ringo came home the night of the attack. His legs had swollen to the point where he could no longer bend them, so he was unable to sleep that night, Horishny said. Because of the injured tooth, Ringo refused to allow Horishny to get close enough to give him pain medication, so Horishny stayed up with Ringo all night as the greyhound panted in pain.
Ringo finally fell asleep Thursday afternoon, so Horishny went out to buy a syringe to dissolve and feed the medication to his dog in broth. When he returned, Ringo was unresponsive and having seizures. Horishny again rushed him to the veterinarian, where his condition continued to deteriorate until he died Friday morning.
The pitbull was removed from the neighborhood later Friday after a pickup order was signed by a judge, Bluffton police Maj. Joseph Manning said. The owners were given a court date, when it will be determined whether the dog will be released. Until then, the pitbull will be held at Beaufort County Animal Services, Manning said.

ROCKHOLDS KY - A 10-MONTH-OLD PIT BULL RAN INTO A WOMAN'S YARD SUPPOSEDLY FOLLOWING A THROWN FRISBEE AND ATTACKED THE WOMAN RIPPING OFF A 4-INCH DIAMETER PORTION OF SKIN

A Rockholds PIT BULL owner must pay $330 in fines and court costs but will get to keep her dog after pleading guilty Tuesday to harboring a vicious animal.
“It could have been worse,” said Tonya Bell, noting the court could have ordered the 10-month-old pit bull seized and destroyed.
As part of the plea agreement, Bell agreed to install a seven-foot-high fence behind their home on Tye’s Ferry Road.
“I have an electric fence right now, but I will be getting the other fence up,” Bell said.
The victim in the case, Janice Manning, and her husband, Conley, appeared in court Tuesday but did not say anything during the proceedings.
When District Court Judge Fred White initially called the case, it appeared it may be headed for trial.
County Attorney Bob Hammons offered the fine, court costs and fence provision if Bell would plead guilty to the charge. In addition, the agreement calls for a 30-day probated jail sentence, which Bell must serve if the dog gets out again.
Bell’s attorney, Adam Howard, objected to the agreement.
White responded that he would set the case for a jury trial in approximately two weeks.
Howard asked for the opportunity to speak with Bell and when the case was recalled, Bell accepted the deal.
The incident that resulted in the charge occurred on March 23.
Janice Manning was throwing a Frisbee with a young nephew in her yard when she was bitten by the pit bull.
According to county officials, the Frisbee went over into Bell’s yard. When someone at the residence threw the Frisbee back, the dog followed it and bit Manning on the right calf, ripping off a four-inch diameter portion of skin.
When Bell called the dog it reportedly returned home.
Conley Manning said previously that he had spoken with Bell and she agreed to build a lot behind their home for the dog.
Attorney BJ Foley is representing the Mannings in the lawsuit in response to the incident.



NEWFOUNDLAND, NL CANADA - A PIT BULL BELONGING TO A "RESPONSIBLE OWNER" ATTACKED A TEENAGE GIRL - 10 DAYS LATER IT ATTACKED ANOTHER CHILD - A DOG GROUP IS APPEALING TO THE JUDGE TO SAVE THE PIT





















Emily Dwyer usually loves going to the park, but when she and her family went on an outing to Bowring Park last week, she couldn’t even get out of the car.

"I was too scared, there were so many dogs around,” she said.

The 14-year-old always liked dogs. That is, until last month, when she was viciously attacked by a PIT BULL, which belonged to her boyfriend’s brother, Matthew Michael Whelan.  Now the sight of a dog causes her to shake uncontrollably.

On Tuesday, Emily was in provincial court in St. John’s, where Whelan faced a judge on charges of breaching the Animal Health Protection Act — failing to keep his dog tethered or penned at all times and unlawfully allowing a companion animal to cause a hazard.

Outside the courtroom, Emily showed reporters the injuries to her arm. It happened April 10. Emily had been at a party in the Mundy Pond area with her boyfriend and other friends. A few of them decided to leave and go to her boyfriend’s house on Cairo Street.

Emily and her friend left separately and when they arrived at the house, they went in to wait for her boyfriend and other friends.  Once inside the house, she asked Whelan to put the dog in another room so she could go to the washroom, she said.

Instead, he held onto the dog’s tail while he talked on the phone, she said. The dog got loose and ran after her.

“I panicked. I was terrified,” Emily said.  She said she ran into a bedroom, but the dog jumped up, bit her and dragged her to the floor.

“Matthew had to beat the dog with a piece of wood to get it off me,” she said.

A dog trainer says Diesel, the pit bull that bit two children, is not a candidate for behaviour modification and should be put down.

She ran downstairs over a baby gate, holding her injured arm.

“Matthew didn’t even come downstairs to check and see how I was,” said Emily, who suffered lacerations and muscle damage from the attack.

Ten days after Emily was bitten, the same dog was said to have atacked another child — this time, a young boy, whose injuries are reportedly more serious.

Whelan said nothing in court Tuesday. His case is due back before a judge July 14 to allow him time to get a lawyer.

Whelan was first in court last week, when the judge granted a police officer’s application to have Whelan’s pit bull, Diesel, euthanized. However, a day later, an application was presented in court by lawyer Averill Baker on behalf of a dog group hoping to stay the judge’s ruling and save the dog’s life.  Arguments to hear that application will be made Friday.

The pit bull was impounded after the incidents and has been handed over to the Humane Society, where it will remain until the courts decide its fate.

Emily’s mother, Melissa, said the dog should be put down and is shocked that many people seem to be more concerned with what happens to the dog than the safety of  children.

“It’s quite frustrating because nobody is even concerned about the kids, it seems,” said Melissa, who added doctors treating Emily said that had the dog bitten her neck, she likely would not have survived.

“Unfortunately, it’s not the dog’s fault. I believe it was how it was raised. But, at this point, the dog has attacked twice.”

Melissa said she has nothing against pit bulls — just this pit bull, in particular. However, she believes the dog is getting sympathy because of the negative reputation associated with the breed.

“If this wasn’t a pit bull, it would’ve been put down right away. They’re only concerned about giving (the breed) any more of a bad name than what they have now. If it was a German shepherd, a Shih Tzu or a beagle, do you think people would be coming forward fighting to keep it alive? No, they wouldn’t.

“I’ve got nothing against pit bulls. It’s about this dog, in particular.”

Melissa said Emily’s physical scars are healing, but the psychological damage will take longer.
“She’ll never be the same,” she said.

CHICAGO IL - A PIT BULL MAULED JAMES W. NEVILS III, 5, TO DEATH GRIPPING HIM BY THE NECK AND SHOULDER - 2 YOUNG MEN BEAT THE PIT WITH EVERYTHING THEY COULD GET THEIR HANDS ON UNTIL IT DIED....BUT IT WAS TOO LATE


UPDATE:  Brad Powers, a spokesman for the Commission on Animal Care and Control, told the Chicago Tribune the dog was "large and muscular,” with “features consistent with the Dogo Argentino breed.” 

A 5-year-old boy was killed by a dog on Chicago's South Side Monday night. Several witnesses intervened, eventually killing the PIT BULL that just wouldn't let go of the child.

The Cook County medical examiner identified the victim as James W. Nevils III, of the 8000-block of South Escabana Avenue. James was visiting the Gresham home in the 8900-block of South Carpenter Street Monday when he was mauled. The dog lived at the home, neighbors said.


"I can't get past that thought. My grandson suffering. That hurts me more than anything else," James Nevils, the boy's grandfather, said.

The boy, affectionately called "Pudgy" by his family, was a "very outgoing little boy. Very loving and kind. He's a real character. A lot like his father. A lot like myself," Nevils said.

Neighbors said they heard the screaming for help around 9:30 p.m. Monday.

"I hear someone yelling, 'He has my baby! Somebody please help me!' When I looked, I thought someone was fighting. When I looked closer, the dog had the child by the neck and shoulder," said Bianca White, who lives nearby.

Two men ran over and started beating the dog in an attempt to get it to let go of the boy, neighbors said. It worked, briefly, but the dog then went after the child again.

"They started stabbing it. They threw rocks at it. They dropped this big rock on it. They didn't wait for the dog to turn around and attack them. They just started attacking it," White said.

"I don't know, I wasn't really thinking about nothing but getting the dog off the baby," saidMarquis Lewis, 16. "We grabbed a brick from over there by the tracks and started hitting the dog with the brick. Then my brother grabbed the pole, started hitting the dog with the pole until the dog died."

James was unresponsive when the ambulance arrived. Emergency responders rushed him to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he later died. An autopsy determined the boy died of multiple sharp and blunt force injuries to the head and neck. His death was ruled an accident.

"Their animal took my young grandson's life. And that's something I can never get back," Nevils said.

Lemar Lewis, 19, and Marquis, 16

Lewis' brother, Lamar, 19, said the dog's owner was not there when the attack occurred and returned only after the dog was dead and James was on his way to the hospital.

"All I heard was, 'Why y'all let the dog out?' Because he knew what kind of dog he had. So them letting the dog out, he knew what was possible to happen," Lamar Lewis said.

GREENVILLE NC - A PIT BULL MIX DOG GOT OUT OF ITS FENCE AND BEGAN ATTACKING 3 CHILDREN AND A FATHER - AN OFFICER WAS FORCED TO SHOOT IT AFTER IT TRIED TO ATTACK HIM.

(AP) - A police officer says he shot and killed a dog who attacked three children and a father, then turned on the officer as he tried to help them.
Authorities said the PIT BULL MIX died shortly after the shooting at a Greenville apartment complex around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
Police say a large, mixed-breed dog attacked three children and their father Sunday, but the dog

Investigators say the three children were playing outside when the dog got out of a fence and began attacking them. The father tried to rescue his children and was bitten several times on the hand.

WEST BEND WI - A DOGO ARGENTINO (BULLDOG MIX) JUMPED FROM A MOVING TRUCK TO ATTACK A GOLDEN RETRIEVER THAT WAS IN ITS FRONT YARD WITH ITS OWNER


(WITI) — A West Bend woman and her dog are recovering from injuries from a dog fight in her front yard. She says it started in an instant. This, as the owners of both dogs involved claim their dogs were only acting in self-defense.
“The only thing that went through my mind was, ‘he is not going to die,'” Janet Mundt said.
Mundt’s 10-year-old Golden Retriever Drake has a tight bandage around his head. On Sunday May 24th Mundt says A NEIGHBOR'S DOG JUMPED FROM A PASSING TRUCK AND ATTACKED DRAKE, BITING OFF A QUARTER OF HIS FEAR AND BITING HIS CHEST.
“He didn`t deserve this. The dog had let loose and it was going right for his jugular,” Mundt said. 
“Drake was screaming — just screaming, and I was screaming.”
It happened in Mundt’s front yard.
“I literally pulled Drake up and the dog was on top of him,” Mundt said.
Witnesses told West Bend police they saw the dog jump out of a moving truck and attack Drake. The responding officer found two people trying to break their dogs apart.
“I did everything. I was kicking the dog — anything I could think of because this is my baby,” Mundt said.
The officer saw blood on the Golden Retriever and Mundt and says the other dog, a 2-YEAR-OLD MALE DOGO ARGENTINO (A BULLDOG MIX) NAMED ZEUS was clamped onto Drake’s leg.
When the officer tried to separate the dogs, Drake bit the officer on his hand.
“He was just so upset. He didn’t know what he was doing,” Mundt said.
Mundt herself needed many stitches for bites she received trying to separate the dogs.
“There’s 22 on my left hand, 16 on my middle finger and 14 on my lower,” Mundt said.
FOX6 News spoke with the owner of the attacking dog, who says HER DOG JUMPED OUT OF THE TRUCK TO PLAY.  She said Drake attacked her dog first.
Zeus’ owner says he has his own injuries, and that he never bit Mundt — something Mundt disputes. She says the injuries to her left hand were caused by Zeus.
“I know this dog wanted to kill him,” Mundt said.
Mundt says her dog has never been in a fight before.
“He maybe kissed somebody to death, but he never bit anyone,” Mundt said.

The boy's family, which has been consoled on their respective Facebook pages by family and friends, has reportedly retained an attorney and plans to take legal action against the owner of the dog.

WARREN OH - A NEIGHBOR'S 2 HUSKIES ATTACKED A SMALL DOG ON ITS PORCH THEN KILLED ANOTHER NEIGHBOR'S JACK RUSSELL TERRIER


(WYTV) – After a series of dog attacks in Trumbull county, one woman is thankful to be alive.
On Wednesday afternoon, Helen Mahon let her dog Piper outside on her porch. TWO HUSKIES came around the corner of her house and attacked her dog.

Mahon was bitten on her face and arm. Piper was bitten multiple times as well.

“I ran out there. And I was going to save my dog no matter what. So I grabbed a tool that was on the porch and I beat them off. But then they came up after me,” she said.

The two huskies also attacked and killed a Jack Russel Terrier that lived next door. The Trumbull County dog warden said the dogs must remain quarantined at the the house for 10 days after the attack. They also will be labeled as dangerous dogs, which will require the owners to comply with the dangerous dog law.

“I am scared to death. I am afraid to go outside,” Mahon said.

Charri Everson owns the huskies. She was shocked and devastated when she found out what her dogs had done.

“I can barely even look at them anymore and I know they are not like that. They are sweet,” Everson said.

She said that the dogs have escaped before, but they have never done anything like this. And she is now faced with a very tough decision.

“I love them to death but I don’t think that I can keep them now that they have bitten someone. I think I am going to have to give them up and have them put down,” Everson said.

She has been charged with failure to restrain her dog and will appear in court next week.


CLINTON TOWNSHIP NJ - AN AMERICAN BULLDOG ATTACKED AN 82-YEAR-OLD WOMAN THEN TURNED ON HER 57-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER-IN-LAW - THE DOG WAS A RESCUE WITH PRIOR ATTACK HISTORY

Authorities are trying to determine whether charges should be filed against the owner of an AMERICAN BULLDOG who attacked a 57-year-old Colorado woman Wednesday evening at a Ramsey Road residence.
The woman was attacked after she tried to intervene when the dog attacked her 82-year-old mother-in-law, police said.
The attack on the Colorado woman ended only when Patrolman Harry Bugal grabbed the dog by its throat and spinal area as it was latched onto the woman’s upper left leg as she was lying face down on the front porch of the home, police say.
Police were called to the home at about 5:35 p.m. Wednesday after several neighbors reported a woman screaming for help and an out-of-control dog mauling a woman.
When Bugal arrived, he saw the woman, who was bleeding heavily, lying face down on the porch with the dog attacking her.
After the patrolman grabbed the dog and it released its grip on the woman, she walked into the front yard and collapsed, police say.
Though Bugal kept a grip on the dog, it continued to growl and thrash in an attempt to attack him.
A neighbor came to the officer’s aid by dialing 911 and holding a cellphone to Bugal’s mouth so he could request additional officers to the scene. The neighbor used a cane to help pin down the dog.
Sgt. Corey Kubinak of the Town of Clinton Police Department arrived with an animal snare pole and captured the dog’s head in the snare. That allowed Bugal to let go of the dog.
The Clinton Rescue Squad treated the woman, who had multiple bites to both arms, her chest and leg, police said.
Bugal, who suffered scrapes and cuts to his arm, learned that the dog had been rescued about a year ago and had been involved in two prior bite attacks, police say.
Clinton Township Animal Control Officer Nate Barson responded, took custody of the dog and will be determining if any charges are warranted against the owner of the dog, who was not present.
