CABOT AR - A PIT BULL CAME OUT OF THE WOODS AND ATTACKED 2 AMERICAN PAINTS PORCHE AND FLASHY AT ROMAN'S TRAINING CENTER

A pit bull attack almost turned deadly for two horses at Roman's Training Center in Cabot.
Trainer June Roman said  A PIT BULL  came out of the woods Sunday and attacked two of her American Paints, Porche and Flashy. 
"No provocation whatsoever," Roman said. "Just murder on his mind. He was ripping Flashy's nose and leg off."
"She [Porche] was covered in blood on her legs, her face, chunks hanging off," said Dana Bailey, Porche's owner. "I was just crying because I have the horse gene and she's my baby."
After the horses stomped the pit bull, Roman said a Pulaski County deputy contained him.
"The dog then jumped up, grabbed a cat and the deputy shot him," Roman said. "The dog ran off and eventually they followed the blood trail across the highway and someone else had shot and killed him."
Porche and Flashy spent the next three days in a vet clinic. Roman said each owner is facing at least a $2,500 medical bill.
"Someone needs to be responsible for this," she said.

"It was an irresponsible dog owner that led to my poor horse getting attacked," Bailey said.
While they try to track down the pit bull's owner based on the information on his dog tags, Porche and Flashy were able to return home Thursday.
"The second she saw me she nickered and it made me tear up a little bit like, 'Mom, pick me up, bring me home,'" Bailey said. "Their injuries look amazing compared to what they looked like Sunday."
Roman expects the horses to recover in several weeks and plans on purchasing a donkey to help protect them and the other animals. She said they are known to get rid of predators.
"This probably won't happen ever again," Roman said. "And it hasn't happened in the 30 years I've been a trainer here. 
THE VET TOLD US EVEN COYOTES OR WOLVES WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS."

"It won't happen again." -- Yes it will, unless people start shooting pit bulls *before* they attack, the very first time any pit bull is seen roaming.
