PITTSBURGH PA - A 75-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS ATTACKED BY HER GRANDSON'S PIT BULL THAT HE "SOMEHOW" COULD NOT CONTROL

A 75-year-old woman was bitten several times and seriously injured by her grandson's dog, and a Pittsburgh police officer was also bitten after being called to help.
Police said the owner of the PIT BULL won't face charges for the incident, which happened early Monday morning at a home in the 2500 block of Allequippa Street in West Oakland.
Police and paramedics responded and were attending to the victim when the dog escaped the back yard, ran onto the front porch and bit the woman again after the owner couldn't control it.
Officers eventually used a collared stick to control the dog and remove it from the scene.
The woman was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in serious condition. The officer was treated and released from the hospital. Their names have not been released.
Leroy McPherson said his mother lives next door to the victim. He said he doesn't see any aggression from the multiple dogs at the home when he visits the neighborhood.
"Never even come to the side of the fence and barked or growled or anything like that," McPherson said.

It should always be a crime to own a dog so out of control that it puts someone in the hospital.

How is that not obvious?

Leroy McPherson is a nutter trying to protect the reputation of pit bulls. Heaven forbid we should actually let reality sink in. A pit bull attacked an elderly woman, escaped the back yard, and continued the attack while paramedics were attending to the victim.

The pit bulls at that house have never shown aggression before. That cancels out what just happened!

I don't care if the pit bulls passed out Halloween candy to children last year. I don't care if the pit bulls rescued kittens from a sewer. I CARE ABOUT THE VICTIM!
