RICHLANDS, ONSLOW COUNTY NC - A LARGE DOG SAID TO BE A MIXED MASTIFF BREED ATTACKED A CHILD PLAYING IN A BACK YARD AND THEN TURNED ON HER MOTHER - A NEIGHBOR SHOT IT



A dog was shot by a neighbor after deputies say it attacked a four-year-old girl and her mother.
Onslow County Sheriff's Office Major Chris Thomas says it happened around 5:30 p.m. Monday on Coral Ridge Road outside of Richlands.
Thomas says the girl was playing at the neighbor's yard when the ENGLISH MASTIFF bit the child on her left arm and wrist. Her mother heard the scream and jumped the fence to get the dog off her child.

The major says the Mastiff then attacked the mother, who was bitten on the arm, wrist and hand. The dog's owner came outside and tried to get it off the two people, but couldn't.
Thomas says another neighbor arrived with a gun and the owner told them to shoot the animal. After the dog was shot, it let the mother go.
The mother and daughter were taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital and Animal Control took the dog, which was still alive when it left. All Animal Control would tell us this morning was that the case was under investigation.
Neighbors say the mother and daughter are back home today.

Gee, I wonder what would happen if I play with razor blades, fire, gasoline, guns, broken glass, knives, scissors, blowtorches, bombs, grenades, machine guns, C-4...

Why are people attracted to those menacing dogs?

That dog better be put down! That's my daughter and grand daughter. What would have happened if that neighbor hadn't shot the dog? We would be on our way to a funeral instead of flying out because this scared us to death. Bless that neighbor!!!

Oh, God Bless you!!! I am so thankful that your children survived. There have been 2 deaths already in the first 9 days of the new year and so many others mauled and mutilated. You are one of the lucky ones. Thank God for this Hero who had a gun and knew how to use it!!! Please be strong and use this incident to help save others from the jaws of these monsters that people are keeping as house pets. BEST WISHES!!!
