TYLER TX - A SHERIFF'S DEPUTY WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL AFTER RESPONDING TO A 911 DISTURBANCE CALL - HE WAS FORCED TO SHOOT THE PIT








































































































































A Smith County Sheriff’s Deputy was transported to the hospital after being attacked by a PIT BULL.
According to the Smith County Sheriff’s Office, on August 13, shortly after noon, Smith County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 10200 block of Nolan Drive in Tyler after a female had called 911 in reference to a disturbance.
The caller reported her boyfriend and another unknown male were attempting to break into the residence to “kill” her, according to the SCSO.
According to SCSO, dispatch advised the caller was armed inside the residence with a loaded firearm. As deputies arrived on scene and approached the residence to make contact with reporting person, one of the deputies went around the back of the house and another approached the front door of the residence.
As the deputy approached the residence the reporting person exited the residence. As the reporting person exited the front door, two pit bull dogs ran out with her. A brown colored pit bull didn’t appear to be aggressive, but a second white pit bull was.
The white pit bull ran toward the deputy and the deputy pushed him off. The deputy extended his right arm, and the pit bull jumped up and grabbed his arm at the elbow causing injury, according to the SCSO.
The deputy managed to get the dog off, and the dog came back at the deputy once again. The deputy then shot the dog in order to get away. The dog was located about 25 yards out from the residence and was deceased.
The deputy was transported to East Texas Medical Center by ambulance where he was treated for a large laceration to the forearm and released.
According to the SCSO, the remains of the deceased animal will be submitted to examine for rabies.

For heaven's sake. Pit bull owner calls police wanting to be rescued from her very own boyfriend. She has two pit bulls in the house -- you know, the type of dog that in the pit-freak moral code RIGHTLY mauls 4-year-olds to death for trespassing, 'just protecting the owner'.

But wow, instead of now protecting this pit idiot from her very own lethally armed adult boyfriend, the pit bull goes for the police.

Why did she have to call police? Why didn't her pittie-poos protect her from the boyfriend? Why did pittie-poo decide instead to attack her rescuer?

Pit bull loyalty -- just as unpredictable as explosive pit bull aggression.

Good thing the officer shot this mauler dead, too bad he didn't shoot the other one while he was at it.
