ASHLAND KY - A FRIEND'S PIT BULL WAS LET OUT OF A CAGE JUST AS A WOMAN ENTERED THE ROOM WITH HER TODDLER - THE PIT WENT FOR THE BABY'S FACE!!!
"Me (Brooklyn Moore) and my Son (Bryson Moore-19 months) were attacked on third circle by a PIT BULL. We were invited over by a friend of mine to stop by. After we were invited inside, one of the children she was babysitting (who is 8) opened up the door to the cage right after she said "this dog is super super mean". As soon as the dog heard the door unlock, he pounced out and immediately started attacking my baby! so me as a mother had to jump in for my baby. As me and my friend Rachel pulled the pit off it started attacking me! I shoved the dog off of me and it ran outside. We ran outside as well because there was another pit loose inside. I was screaming and begging for help. and one of the neighbors called the police. While we were outside the dog attacked me AGAIN on the same spot! I put Bryson in a neighbor’s car trying to make sure the dog wouldn't harm my baby again. The police showed up and the dog tried to go back inside the house ( where there were three more children, plus another pit!!). My friend, Rachel, was bit in the jaw, I was bit multiple times on my elbow and have 20+ stiches. My son has 12+ stiches on his face, staples on top and the back of his head; his left eye was bit and is swollen shut and is currently black. The owners of the dog claim it is up to date on shots, but this isn’t the first time the dog has attacked someone. Neither Bryson nor I currently have health insurance.. mostly just asking for prayers, but our medical bills are OUTRAGEOUS. Thank you so much for any help you can give! GOD BLESS. ❤️"
