Sanford police got a 911 call around 3:15 p.m. saying a woman, Virginia Farley - 50,  in the Stonebrook apartment complex was screaming for help, spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said.
An officer rushed to the complex, opened an apartment door, and saw FIVE PIT BULLS  mauling a woman, Gillett said.
The officer started shooting, killing four of the dogs, Gillett said. The fifth dog was subdued, but alive.
Two women, one man, and one boy were taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital, Gillett said. One woman had life-threatening injuries.
Another boy had minor injuries and was not hospitalized.
Police do not yet know whether the dogs belonged to anyone, Gillett said.
The apartment complex is located on Stonebrook Drive.

Mayhem seems to follow pit bulls. It is disturbing how many people did not get the memo that pit bulls are dangerous. They'll blame pack mentality on this herd of pit bulls. Even though it doesn't matter if it's 1 pit bull, or 5--they're all deadly.

My prediction is, backyard breeder, and the lovable pit bulls started fighting. The nutters tried to break up the fight, and the lovable pit bulls redirected to them. Probably should have crate and rotated, and learned how to use break sticks for those mythical locking jaws.

The super good part of this story is, 4 pit bulls are no longer with us, and cannot maul again. We have to watch out for the 5th mauler though.

The Sentinal article says "It remains unclear if the pit bulls lived in the apartment or were visiting, according to Sanford police Investigator Ronny Neal."

The Clickorlando article says police shot FIVE pit bulls dead and coaxed a SIXTH one out of the apartment.

That alone boggles the mind -- six frankenmaulers in an apartment.

I'm sure the tenant is claiming "weren't my dogs" because the building doesn't allow pit bulls -- avoid liability and avoid getting evicted after this mauling. I'm sure the tenant will say "but I thought they were poodles".

I hope the landlord ends up paying through the nose for this one, for not enforcing the no pit bulls rule.

When I was a kid growing up, we weren't allowed to have dogs as we lived in an apartment. We followed that rule. Nowadays, you can bring pit bulls, 5 of them, into apartment buildings that don't allow pit bulls. Even if the pit bulls were "visitors" why bring an entire pack? I don't buy that crap anyway. They were probably PTSD therapy rehabilitated nanny dogs, and lived there.
