JACKSON COUNTY GA - THE VICTIM OF A VICIOUS MAULING BY 3 PIT BULLS AND A MASTIFF SPEAKS OUT ABOUT HOW HE FOUGHT TO KEEP THE DOGS FROM HIS NECK



UPDATE:  ANIMAL CONTROL DIRECTOR MATT HAMNER SAYS IT'S EASY TO JUMP ON THE  'PIT BULL TRAIN' BUT THE DOGS WERE LAB MIXES, BOXER MIX AND BOXER/MASTIFF MIX. THEN HE JUMPS ON THE "BLAME THE VICTIM TRAIN"  BY SAYING THAT SOMETHING TRIGGERED THE ATTACK....."THE VICTIM MUST HAVE PANICKED DURING THE ATTACK, WHICH FURTHER PROVOKED THE DOGS."

 Wayne Ford/ Staff    Michael Wiley recovers from dog attack in his room at Athens Regional Medical Center.


A Jackson County mans says he thought he was going to die when he was attacked by a pack of dogs while out for a Monday afternoon walk.
Michael Wiley was in really bad shape when he was rushed to the emergency room at Athens Regional Medical Center.
"It started with that big dog first, then the rest of them. I guess they got the taste of blood," Wiley said. "That's when the other two just came up and started biting me all at the same time."
Wiley went through 2 1/2 hours of surgery and got rabies shots. He says that was kindergarten stuff compared to what the pack of dogs did to him  ."They were going straight for my neck. They were going straight for my neck the whole time," Wiley said.
Doctors at Athens Regional Medical Center said it was the worst dog bites they've ever seen. Wounds were "too graphic" for TV. The victim's sister couldn't believe it.
A sheriff's deputy took a couple of snapshots of the animals, three pit bulls and a mastiff. One dog was a stray and the other dogs belonged to two neighbors.
The deputy said the dogs even lunged at his patrol car and started chomping at the tires.
Jackson County Animal Control is now in charge of the investigation.

The so-called 'mastiff' involved was -- you can be 100% sure -- a pit bull mix. The AKC and other kennel clubs are cooperating in branding various pit bull - mastiffs as "French mastiff" ('Dogue de Bordeaux), Argentine mastiff" ('dogo Argentino'), "Italian mastiff" ('cane Corso' and 'mastino Napolitano'), bullmastiff (by definition 40% pit bull), etc.

In reality, all of these 'mastiffs' are just vulgar pit bull mixes, no different than any pit bull mix that hasn't been anointed with a deceptive kennel club name.
