Thanks to a grandmother’s will to fight off a PIT BULL, she and her two grandchildren are home Sunday to tell the story of their close encounter with a dog she said could have ended their lives.


“For me not to be a dog owner, this has been one of the most frightening moments of my life,”  Mary King Taylor said who fought off a pit bull.

Sunday morning these toddlers were playing in the front yard of their grandparents Brownsville home when Mary King Taylor says a pit bull attacked. You can see scratches are all over their bodies, and according to Taylor the pit clawed at all three of them and even had this little girls head in its mouth.

“When I get one child he would snatch the other one,”  Taylor said. “All of us were laying on the ground and he was on top, and I was just kicking him.”

Taylor said she wrestled with the dog about four minutes before neighbors came to the rescue. Her neighbor Roger Chute said when he saw what was happening, he had to step in.

“We’ve got to do something,” neighbor Roger Chute said. “Because that dog looks like, it looked like a vicious attack.”

“I thank them for coming, help because I don’t know we might not have made it through this attack,”  Taylor said.

Taylor and her two grand-babies were transported to Jackson General with minor injuries. Brownsville Police said they tased the dog when they arrived and were able to capture it.  Although they have all been released from the hospital, and can once again play in the front yard, Taylor has a message for dog owners.

“So people that have pit bulls they really need to keep they animals,”  Taylor said. “Make sure they are put up and watched. You need to know where your pet is at at all times.”

According to Brownsville Police Assistant Chief Evans the department is looking for the owner of that pit bull.

Charges are likely to follow since the city of Brownsville has an ordinance prohibiting pit bulls, which passed in March.  The code puts a ban on new pit bulls coming to the city.  Current owners were asked to register their pet and haave them micro-chipped.
