I live 2 blocks from this woman- this happened in Franklin Manor on the Bay, an upper middle class waterfront community on the Chesapeake Bay. They are decent people, 2 sisters living with their YOUNG KIDS in a well kept home ...and the dangerous Pit Bull accident waiting to happen when pitty suddenly snapped one day as they all too often do. This was not a dog tied outside or a drug dealer's or junk yard dog or one they were fighting or neglecting, it was a loved family pet in a nice middle class home with little kids. She was working in the yard when it attacked her and neighbors could not get the dog off her, it meant to kill her and kept going after her as she tried to get inside the house. A man was trying to beat it off her with a shovel (you could hear the screaming all over the neighborhood) and yet it kept trying to kill her. This is exactly why these dangerous dogs need to be banned, if it had attacked one of the kids (who are small) we would be talking about a death here...not that her injuries were not horrible & disfiguring for life.
