POMONA CA - A PIT BULL AND A CHIHUAHUA MIX RAN LOOSE AND THE PIT CHASED AND BIT 2 STUDENTS AND POSSIBLY MORE OUTSIDE FREMONT ACADEMY

The Inland Valley Humane Society has taken possession of two dogs, one of which bit two teens and possibly more people Tuesday morning in front of Fremont Academy in South Pomona, the Humane Society reported.
The dogs — A PIT BULL AND A CHIHUAHUA MIX  — will be under quarantine for 10 days “to make sure they are not showing any signs of rabies,” said James Edward, operations manager for the Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA.
The attack occurred in front of the campus at 725 W. Franklin Ave., which serves seventh- through 12th-graders, said Fernando Meza, Pomona Unified School District’s administrative director of pupil and community services.
Pomona police received a report of the attack at about 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, said Pomona Police Department Lt. Christian Hsu.
Officers arrived and found two teens had been bitten while on their way to school.
One victim was a 15-year-old boy who is a student at Garey High School. THE PIT BULL CHASED THE BOY AND AFTER IT BIT HIM, “he ran to the (Fremont) school office,” Hsu said.
The second victim was a 13-year-old girl, a Fremont student. She too sought assistance at the school office AFTER THE DOG BIT HER, he said.
The parents of each teen took their child to hospitals for treatment, Hsu said.
They were both treated and released, Edward said.
Humane Society officers investigating the incident located the pit bull and the Chihuahua at their owner’s home, said Edward, adding he could not release the name of the owner Tuesday.
"Although it was the PIT BULL which bit the teens, both dogs were quarantined because they both were on the loose and both were aggressive, Edward said.
The owner of the dogs will have to make a decision as to whether to release the dogs to the Humane Society or have them euthanized, he said.
Due to the aggressive behavior of the dogs, “we wouldn’t put the dogs up for adoption,” Edward said.
Depending on the results of the investigation the dogs’ owner could be cited for leash law violations and, if the animals are not licensed, for having unlicensed dogs, he said.
Edward added dog owners should spay or neuter their dogs — the dogs in this case were not — and keep them confined in a secure location. The animals should also be vaccinated and have current licenses.

They need to stop protecting the owners of these frankenmaulers. If they publish the victim's name, exposing them to the terrorism of the pit bull crowd, then they must also publish the name of the domestic terrorist -- the pit freak -- who caused the carnage in the first place.

I'm amazed that the pit bull crowd complains about media bias, when that bias is so obviously oriented to protecting them rather than the victims of their killer undogs.

So often the PBAs will say Chihuahuas are more vicious. Just which dog did the biting here? Interesting.

I would really like to see a picture of this chihuahua mix! I keep thinking...of some poor chihuahua forced to get pregnant by a pit bull and lord knows what the litter would look like, or for that matter, act like. I have a special place in my heart for the chihuahuas I have known. I've never heard of any chihuahua leaping across a room to chomp down on a person's neck and hold it and not let go until they are stone-cold dead. Where are the Chihuahua advocates from all across the land and why are they not coming to the defense of this Chihuahua mix that evidently barked and growled but didn't bite anyone but might be euthanize!!!?????!!!
