CHRISTCHURCH NZ - AN AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER MIX TORE A CHUNK OUT OF ITS OWNER'S BUTTOCK THEN PROCEEDED TO ATTACK HIS PARTNER LOCKING ON TO HER ARM - THE OWNER OPPOSED DESTROYING THE NANNY DOG BECAUSE HE WAS SO " ATTACHED" TO IT

The owner of an  AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER-CROSS DOG  who bit him in the hip, then attacked his partner's arm, has agreed to the animal's destruction.
Matthew James Robertson, 23, had originally opposed the dog, called Ceazer, being destroyed as he was very attached to him and had owned him for two-and-a-half years.
On September 17, the dog attacked Robertson and took a chunk out of his buttock, so he shut him in the lounge of his house.
The dog escaped and went into the front yard, where he attacked Robertson's partner in a two to three minute attack.
Robertson removed the dog's locked jaw from her arm, and in court on Monday said that if he had not done that she would have lost her arm.
She has an option of undergoing plastic surgery for the puncture wounds on her arm, he said.
The dog has been in Christchurch City Council's animal shelter since October 2015.
Christchurch District Court Judge Stephen O'Driscoll said the law was clear that upon conviction of the owner there must be an order for destruction of the dog, unless there were exceptional reasons for the attack.
He sentenced Robertson to 80 hours community work, and to pay reparation for the cost of looking after the dog of $1008 to the Christchurch City Council.


GREEN VALLEY, PIMA COUNTY AZ - A PIT BULL GOT OUT OF A GATE THAT WAS NOT LATCHED SECURELY AND BEGAN ATTACKING A SMALL DOG BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER

A dog attacked two people and another dog in Green Valley on Sunday after it escaped from a backyard as its owner took out the trash.
The incident occurred about 6:15 p.m. in the 200 block of West Calle Frambuesa, according to the Green Valley Fire District.
A 58-year-old woman was taken to a Tucson hospital with non-life threatening injuries; a 76-year-old man declined care.
The owner closed the gate but the latch failed to secure, according to the Pima County Sheriff's Department. The dog, a PIT BULL, attacked a small dog being walked by its owner. The two owners tried to separate the dogs, both sustaining hand injuries. The owner of the small dog was transported to Banner University Medical Center. The owner of the pit bull dog declined to be transported.
Pima Animal Care Center took custody of the pit bull; a county spokesman on Monday was checking on the animal's fate. The smaller dog was taken to The Animal League of Green Valley for assessment.

DEL STONE JR. - DAILY NEWS ONLINE EDITOR: "NO CHILD SHOULD BE AFRAID TO GO OUTSIDE BECAUSE OF A DOG, OR ITS OWNER, WHATEVER"


Feb. 28, 2016 - Once upon a time there was a family down the street that owned a large yellow cur named Jody.
Rumor had it Jody was a retired Army dog that had been trained to mangle people. And mangle people Jody did.
He was kept in the house, but every now and then one of the kids would open the door and Jody would muscle past them and bolt for the neighborhood.
Jody didn’t attack adults, but children were a different story. Jody sought children to mangle.
My friend Johnny and I were shooting marbles in the gutter one Saturday afternoon when I saw Jody galloping in our direction. I told Johnny we needed to hide. He said no, Jody wasn’t a bad dog. He wanted to pet Jody.
I ran to the closest house, and climbed the highest object I could climb, which happened to be a white 1965 Chevy Impala. Johnny, meanwhile, was calling to Jody, who spotted him and changed direction, heading right for him. At the last moment, Johnny seemed to realize he had made a mistake and turned to run, but it was too late.
That’s when the screaming began.
Johnny was screaming. I was screaming. Jody was snarling.
Johnny’s father was vacuuming his car, about three houses down, when he heard the commotion and came running, a vacuum attachment in his hand. Jody saw him coming and took off. Johnny’s father chased him. Then he came back and took Johnny to the hospital.
The police said there was nothing they could do. But my dad thought there was something he could do. For the next several days he kept a loaded shotgun propped up in the carport while he was outside, just in case something needed doing.
My, how times have not changed. I think that every time I read about another dog mauling. And these days, it’s usually at the hand — or jaws as the case may be — of a pit bull.
Pit bulls are not inherently vicious, according to Petfinder.com and other organizations. Here’s what Petfinder had to say on the subject:
“This is a stereotype that is biased toward generalizing and condemning an entire breed based on the actions of a few bad people. The truth is that each dog should be evaluated by his own merits and not by his breed. A corollary truth is that there truly are no bad dogs, only bad people.”
And here is what Dogsbite.org had to say on the very same subject:
“Of the 88 fatal dog attacks recorded by DogsBite.org, pit bull type dogs were responsible for 59 percent (52). This is equivalent to a pit bull killing a U.S. citizen every 21 days during this three-year period.
 “During 1997 and 1998, at least 27 people died of dog bite attacks (18 in 1997 and nine in 1998). At least 25 breeds of dogs were involved in 238 human dog bite related fatalities during the past 20 years. Pit bulls and rottweilers were involved in over half of these fatalities and from 1997 to 1998 were involved in 67 percent.”
So what are we to conclude from these figures? That pit bulls are inherently vicious, or that they suffer from a disproportionate number of irresponsible owners?
At this point I would say it doesn’t matter. We have a dog on our hands that attacks people, and yet we tolerate it. We rationalize and excuse and overlook it, finding ways to blame the owner or circumstances or phases of the moon — whatever. “Oh, Lockjaw would never hurt a fly. He’s so gentle and caring. You should see him around kids.”
I don’t want to see Lockjaw — or any other pit bull — around kids. Whether they’re vicious, or their owners irresponsible, I want them made illegal.
Back to Jody. I had another encounter with that sweet, misunderstood dog. I was walking home one day when suddenly he appeared and headed for me. I had found a large bolt and was taking it home to Dad. I grabbed it out of my pocket and raised my hand to throw it, and when Jody saw that he veered off course and ran down the street.
No kid should be afraid to go outside because of a dog. Or its owner. Whatever.

SYDENHAM, VICTORIA AU - A 2-YEAR-OLD GIRL HAD TO UNDERGO SURGERY AFTER BEING ATTACKED IN THE FACE BY A BULLDOG IN TILLMAN PARK

The dog, believed to be a  BULLDOG,  has since been put down.

Police say the little girl was with her mother at Tillman Park when the unleashed canine attacked her at about 7.30pm.
She was treated by paramedics at the scene before being rushed to the Sydney Children’s Hospital after suffering serious injuries to her eyelid.
It is understood the surgery was successful and the little girl is due to be released from hospital on Monday.
Police also spoke with the dog’s owner.
"Officers spoke with a 37-year-old man who confirmed he was the owner of the dog involved in the incident, believed to be a bulldog," police said in a statement.
"The dog was later taken to a local vet by its owner and destroyed."

ZAMBIA AFRICA - 2 BOERBOEL DOGS ATTACKED AND KILLED A 7-YEAR-OLD GIRL - TWIGGY BUCHISA - AT HER RESIDENCE

•A Boerboel

TWO vicious dogs that mauled a seven-year-old girl of Ndola’s Pamodzi Overspill area have been killed by the Veterinary Department after they were declared a danger to human life.
Twiggy Buchisa who was last Sunday morning attacked and killed by dogs at her residence was put to rest on Tuesday at Kawama cemetery.
Provincial Veterinary Officer (PVO) Alisheke Mutemwa confirmed that the veterinary officers killed the dogs that attacked the girl.
Dr Mutemwa said the veterinary office had removed the brains of the dogs and would take the specimens to Lusaka for rabies tests.
“The veterinary officers have killed the dogs that attacked the girl. Initially when a dog kills a person they stop being a pet but a danger to human life. The veterinary office kills such dogs. We will be sending the specimen to Lusaka to test for rabies though the history does not show that the dogs have any disease,” he said.
He said when dogs kill a person they were not supposed to be taken as pets but should be considered as a danger to human life and should be killed.
Dr Mutemwa said sometimes dogs behaved in a strange way and when provoked they could even kill their owners.
He urged members of the public to take care of their pets in a manner that they did not become a danger to human life.

PONTOTOC COUNTY OK - A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS MAULED BY DOGS WHILE PLAYING WITH ANIMALS ON HIS NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTY


                     
UPDATE: http://www.newson6.com/story/31344653/questions-linger-about-brutal-mauling-of-5-year-old-ada-boy


PICTURE OF 3 DOGS FOUND ON FACEBOOK PAGE






ACCORDING TO MARSHELLA SCHRADER'S FACEBOOK PAGE THIS BOXER OR BOXER MIX WAS A FEMALE NAMED ZADA AND SHE WAS SPAYED.  THE BOXER WAS 60 POUNDS 1 1/2 YEARS AGO.








UPDATE:  FATHER SPEAKS ON VIDEO -http://m.newson6.com/story.aspx?story=31334958&catId=112042


A child is recovering in an Oklahoma City Hospital after being nearly mauled to death by dogs at a neighbor's house off highway 3 northwest of Ada.  Five-year-old Jacoby Bennett's mother found him unconscious in their neighbor's yard just before 4 p.m. Thursday.  Pontotoc County Sheriff  John Christian said the young boy had been mauled by dogs from head to toe.

"My understanding is that she actually loaded the child up and met the ambulance about halfway," Christian said.

Bennett was airlifted to an Oklahoma City Hospital.  He has undergone numerous surgeries already, including reconstructive surgery on his face and his ears, which the dogs had chewed off.

Randy Schrader told news 12 nothing like what happened Thursday afternoon had ever happened before.

"I got lots of nephews and nieces his size and they've been in that pen playing with them dogs and never had a problem," Schrader said.  He said the boy liked to come over and play with his goats and chickens. "He'd been coming over here most of the time when we were here.  I didn't realize he had been coming over when we weren't here."

Schrader ordered two of his three dogs, A  ?SHIATZU? AND A BOXER,  to be euthanized on Friday.  "I don't want dogs around that are going to do stuff like that,"

Their bodies have been sent to a lab for rabies testing.  A third dog was in the yard but not believed to have been involved with the mauling.  "She did not have a drop on her nowhere and the other two were covered," said Schrader.

Christian said no charges will be filed against Schrader and that he doesn't expect any child neglect charges to be filed against the boy's mother, either.  Schrader said his insurance is going to pay for Bennett's injuries.

"I don't even have words to express how sorry I feel toward the family and Jacoby for this happening to him," Schrader said.

A crowd funding page has been set up for Bennett at:

SIKESTON MO - AN OFFICER SHOT AND WOUNDED A PIT BULL AFTER IT CHARGED AND ATTEMPTED TO BITE HIM

A Sikeston Department of Public Safety officer shot and wounded a PIT BULL as it charged at him.
At 8:56 a.m. Tuesday, officers were following up on warrant information in the 1300 block of Butler Street.
According to the DPS incident report, as the officers approached a residence, a pit bull and a German shepherd mix appeared in an open doorway. While the German shepherd remained under the carport, the pit bull rushed at one of the officers, attempting to bite his leg, the report stated.
“The officer kicked at the dog, but it charged again,” said Capt. Bill Mygatt of Sikeston DPS. “The officer drew his weapon and fired shots, with one hitting the dog.”
The injured pit bull ran back into the house, and the officers contacted the dogs’ owner.
Mygatt reported the owners had been contacted several times by Sikeston code enforcement for not keeping their animals restrained properly. He said the city of Sikeston requires numerous precautions related to pit bulls.
A citation was issued to the dog’s owner for allowing the dog to run loose.
Mygatt said the dog is recovering.

LONGMONT CO - 2 HEROES - JIM PEEPLES, 74, AND EARL TILFORD, 84 - CAME TO THE AID OF A MAIL CARRIER GETTING ATTACKED BY 3 PITS - TILFORD SAYS "ONE PIT LOOKED LIKE AN ALLIGATOR" !!!



 A U.S. Postal Service carrier has a couple of Longmont residents to thank for stepping in  when he was attacked by 3 dogs Wednesday morning.

According to the Longmont Police Department, the mail carrier was taken to the ground by
THREE PIT BULL MIXES  on Ash Court near Ninth Avenue and Hover Street around 11 a.m.

After seeing the commotion while doing yard work, neighbors Jim Peeples, 74, and Earl Tilford, 84, rushed to the carrier’s aid armed with a shovel and a trowel.

The men yelled for a neighbor to call 911 while they helped get the dogs off of the carrier and help pick up his mail.

"I had a shovel, so I took off and hit one of them," Peeples told the Daily Camera.

According to Jeff Satur with Longmont Police, the 31-year-old mail carrier went to the doctor to be treated for his injuries.

TILFORD TOLD THE CAMERA THAT "ONE DOG LOOKED LIKE AN ALLIGATOR."

This is not the first dog attack in the area this week, according to Satur. A 49-year-old meter reader with the Longmont Utilities department was viciously attacked by a pit bull mix on Monday, February 22nd. The victim was hospitalized for serious injuries, and was just released from the hospital Wednesday.

Satur told 9NEWS that the mail carrier’s wife just read the story about the meter reader’s attack, and told her husband to be careful delivering mail.

The mail carrier, who is not being identified, is expected to recover.

Longmont Police intend to cite the dogs’ owner for three counts of having an aggressive animal.

CABOT AR - A PIT BULL CAME OUT OF THE WOODS AND ATTACKED 2 AMERICAN PAINTS PORCHE AND FLASHY AT ROMAN'S TRAINING CENTER





VIDEO



A pit bull attack almost turned deadly for two horses at Roman's Training Center in Cabot.
Trainer June Roman said  A PIT BULL  came out of the woods Sunday and attacked two of her American Paints, Porche and Flashy. 
"No provocation whatsoever," Roman said. "Just murder on his mind. He was ripping Flashy's nose and leg off."
"She [Porche] was covered in blood on her legs, her face, chunks hanging off," said Dana Bailey, Porche's owner. "I was just crying because I have the horse gene and she's my baby."
After the horses stomped the pit bull, Roman said a Pulaski County deputy contained him.
"The dog then jumped up, grabbed a cat and the deputy shot him," Roman said. "The dog ran off and eventually they followed the blood trail across the highway and someone else had shot and killed him."
Porche and Flashy spent the next three days in a vet clinic. Roman said each owner is facing at least a $2,500 medical bill.
"Someone needs to be responsible for this," she said.

"It was an irresponsible dog owner that led to my poor horse getting attacked," Bailey said.
While they try to track down the pit bull's owner based on the information on his dog tags, Porche and Flashy were able to return home Thursday.
"The second she saw me she nickered and it made me tear up a little bit like, 'Mom, pick me up, bring me home,'" Bailey said. "Their injuries look amazing compared to what they looked like Sunday."
Roman expects the horses to recover in several weeks and plans on purchasing a donkey to help protect them and the other animals. She said they are known to get rid of predators.
"This probably won't happen ever again," Roman said. "And it hasn't happened in the 30 years I've been a trainer here. 
THE VET TOLD US EVEN COYOTES OR WOLVES WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS."

WATERBURY CT - A PIT BULL ALLOWED BY ITS OWNER TO RUN LOOSE AT A CONDOMINIUM COMPLEX ATTACKED A CONTRACT WORKER - THE CASE WENT TO COURT BUT THE JUDGEMENT PROOF SCUM WAS A NO-SHOW






Talal Garmakani sits on the front porch of a home on Eastern Avenue after he was bitten in the back of the thigh by a pit bull named Major


Talal Garmakani v. Hollister Munn and Bunker Hill Properties LLC

A man injured in a pit bull attack at a condominium complex has been awarded more than $76,000 by a judge in Waterbury. Talal Garmakani was a self-employed contractor specializing in roofing and remodeling. He and a couple other workers were doing work at the Bunker Hill Woods condo complex in Waterbury. The complex was owned by Bunker Hill Properties LLC.

Garmakani's lawyer, David Compagnone, of the Kaloidis Law Firm in Waterbury, said his client was working on the property at around 2 p.m. on Sept. 23, 2013, when a PIT BULL named Major came around a corner of the building  "and started to get aggressive with him." Compagnone said the dog jumped on him and bit his left thigh and knocked him backward onto the ground. The fall hurt his right shoulder, his neck and back.


An ambulance came to the scene and took Garmakani to Waterbury Hospital, where he underwent a series of rabies shots. Garmakani later had an MRI at the Greater Waterbury Imaging Center. The shoulder injury turned out to be Garmakani's worst injury, as the MRI revealed a rotator cuff tear. He now has limited range of motion in that arm. Doctors have said surgery is needed, but Garmakani has not scheduled the operation because he lacks health insurance, Compagnone said. "The knocking backwards is what really messed up his shoulder," the attorney said.

Garmakani was treated at Rosa Chiropractic Center for his back injury. Garmakani has been unable to work. He has a small permanent scar on his left thigh from the dog bite.  Garmakani sued the property ownership for negligence and brought claims against the dog's owner, Hollister Munn, for negligence and recklessness. According to the lawsuit, Munn used to let the dog, who had a "vicious propensity," roam free on the condo property.

Compagnone said the dog owner's unit was nowhere near the part of the condo complex where his client was attacked. Compagnone argued that the condo complex's management was aware that the dog ran around loose on the property and did nothing about it.

Compagnone said the condo complex reached a settlement with Garmakani before trial. The settlement terms were confidential, the lawyer said. Meanwhile, Munn never responded to the lawsuit. Eventually, the judge entered a default judgement in September 2014.  The case proceeded to a hearing on damages in January in Waterbury Superior Court.

Garmakani, who only speaks spanish, testified with the help of an interpreter, said Compagnone.  No one appeared for the defendant at the hearing.  Judge Barbara Brazzel-Massero awarded $16,100 in economic damages and $60,000 in noneconomic damages for a total of $76,100.  The judge awarded an additional $588 for litigation costs.

Despite the award, Compagnone doesn't expect to recover the damages from the no-show defendant dog owner.  "This is going to likely be an uncollectable judgement," said Compagnone.  Garmakani was able to get some compensation from the landlord, which was helpful."

As far as the dog that bit Garmakani, Compagnane is unsure whatever happened to it.  "I believe the dog was put in quarantine because police arrived and called dog control, but I don't know if they ever put the dog down or whatever happened," said Compagnone.

RICHLANDS, ONSLOW COUNTY NC - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL ATTACKED A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHEN SHE STOPPED BY TO PICK UP A FRIEND TO WALK TO THE BUS STOP





(WITN) - A neighbor's dog will be euthanized after authorities say it attacked a 10 year old girl earlier this week.  Nadja Sullivan received more than 20 stitches in her face and has a bandage on her upper chest after her neighbor's dog bit her.


Bianca Sullivan says it happened on Cadenza Lane in Richlands Tuesday morning when her daughter went next door to her friend's house so the two could walk together to the bus stop. The 2-year-old TERRIER/PIT BULL MIX  is under a 10-day quarantine for rabies observation. 
David Cotton, interim Onslow County animal services director, says the owner surrendered the dog which will be put down after the quarantine. He said no charges have been filed against the owner.
The child was treated at Onslow Memorial Hospital and her mom says she may need surgery because of how deep the wound is.
While grateful her daughter is okay, Sullivan is upset that the neighbors didn't call 911 and she learned of the attack only after her daughter ended up at the hospital.


HILLVIEW, BULLITT COUNTY KY - A PIT BULL "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE AND ATTACKED A NEIGHBOR'S DOG THEN RAN INTO A HOME AND POUNCED ONTO A COUCH NEXT TO A 4-YEAR-OLD GIRL

(WDRB) -- Hillview Police say they've arrested a Louisville man after his PIT BULL attacked another dog, then ran into a neighbor's home and pounced onto a couch next to a four-year-old girl.
According to an arrest report, the incident occurred Monday, just after 11:30 p.m., on Gofton Court, near the intersection of Summit Drive and Sanna Drive.
Police say officers were dispatched to a home on that street on a report of a dispute.
When they arrived, they allegedly found 23-year-old Cameron Crosby in the front yard of his home, "being combative, yelling and screaming."
Police say they talked to a female neighbor who said that Crosby's pit bull attacked her dog in the front yard, ran into her home, and jumped on the couch next to her four-year-old daughter.
The woman allegedly told officers she had to beat the dog with a broom to get it out of the house.
According to the arrest report, when officers approached Crosby to ask him about the allegations, he started toward the officers "in an aggressive manner," at which time he was taken to the ground. Police say he "put up a fight" before being handcuffed, stating that he was going to kill one of the officers.
Crosby had a "strong odor" of alcohol coming from his person, and was very unsteady on his feet, according to police. 
He was arrested and charged with harboring a vicious animal, menacing, alcohol intoxication in a public place and terroristic threatening.
The pit bull was taken to Bullitt County Animal Services.

HAVERHILL MA - 2 PIT BULLS RAN LOOSE IN A PARK AND ATTACKED A MINI POODLE BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNERS - THE POODLE OWNER WAS FORCED TO TAKE OUT HIS LICENSED TO CARRY TO STOP THE ATTACK

No charges are expected from Haverhill Police after the owner of a miniature poodle Sunday evening shot and wounded a PIT BULL  attacking his pet when the pit bull’s owner could not control his dog.
The incident occurred at 6:30 p.m., Sunday, in a park at the rear of 52 Washington St., according to Haverhill Police Captain Robert P. Pistone, police spokesperson. A male resident reported a Haverhill resident and a teenage son were walking their mini poodle in the park when TWO PIT BULLS charged toward the son who had the mini poodle in his possession.
“The owner of the pit bulls came to the area where one of the pit bulls was biting the mini poodle,” Pistone told WHAV. “The adult owner of the mini poodle told the owner of the pit bull to control the dogs. The owner could not control the pit bulls and the owner of the mini poodle shot the pit bull in the rear quarter.”
“The teenage son was also bit in the process,” Pistone added.
The mini poodle’s owner was properly licensed for the gun and no charges were brought, Pistone said. However, that owner was cited for failure to license the mini poodle. The owner of the pit bulls was also cited for failure to license, failure to leash, and failure to vaccinate.

WAUPACA COUNTY WI - A DOG OWNER HAS BEEN CHARGED AFTER HE LET HIS ?"REDBONE HOUND MIX"? BRUTALLY ATTACK A WOMAN VISITOR IN HIS HOME

Preuss
A woman told police that a dog threw her around like a rag doll, and the owner did nothing to stop it.
Both of her arms were broken, her left arm in two places.
Jeffrey C. Preuss, 42, Iola, is charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and causing injury by negligent use of a weapon.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 7, Iola Police Officer Curt Field was dispatched to 210 W. Iola St. in response to a reported dog bite.
When he arrived, Field found a 59-year-old woman in a car. He saw a lot of blood on the snow outside the car and on the woman.
She said she was in a great deal of pain and could not feel her left hand.
An ambulance arrived and transported the woman to St. Michael’s Hospital in Stevens Point. She was later taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield for emergency surgery on her left arm.
Two days later, Field met with the woman at the Marshfield hospital.
She said she had gone to Preuss’ home to celebrate the holidays. She later went out to her car and when she returned, she let the dog, Rex, into the house.
The woman was petting Rex when he suddenly began growling at her, then biting her. She told Field that she asked Preuss for help, but he walked out of the room.
She estimated the attack lasted at least 15 minutes.
“All the time she was yelling at the top of her lungs for the defendant to help her and he never appeared,” according to the criminal complaint.
Field interviewed Preuss the night of the incident. The officer reported that Preuss appeared to be highly intoxicated.
Preuss denied seeing the dog attack the woman and said he believed she was drunk and probably fell off the front steps, the complaint says.
On Jan. 9, Field spoke with Preuss again. This time, Preuss reportedly said that after the woman left his house, he looked out the window, saw her on the ground and her left arm in Rex’s mouth.
Preuss said he helped the woman to her car, then went back inside the house, locked the door and laid down on the couch because he did not want to deal with her and the situation any more, the complaint says.
Rex is a REDBONE HOUND MIX. There are reports of two prior dog biting incidents involving Rex and Preuss’ daughter in 2014 and 2015.
Court records indicate the woman’s medical treatment cost nearly $170,000.

PIT BULLS - DO YOU THINK ANY NEIGHBORHOOD FENCE IS GOING TO KEEP A PIT BULL OUT OR KEEP A PIT BULL IN?????

KENOSHA WI - A PIT BULL THAT HAD "NEVER ATTACKED BEFORE" BOUNDED OUT A FRONT DOOR AND LATCHED ON TO A PIT/BOXER MIX BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER - THE OWNER WAS FORCED TO STAB AND KILL THE PIT TO END THE ATTACK

Bain Elementary School was briefly on lockdown Tuesday morning after police received a report of a man stabbing a dog.
Kenosha Police said Kenneth Carrier-Duncan, of Kenosha, was walking his dog, a male pit bull-boxer mix, on a leash in the 4000 block of 28th Avenue when a LOOSE FEMALE PIT BULL attacked Duncan’s dog.
The attacking dog reportedly bit the other dog numerous times on the neck and shoulder.
Despite numerous attempts, Katherine Tassi, owner of the attacking dog, could not get it away from the other dog.
Tassi reportedly told Duncan to “do what he had to do.” Duncan said he was sorry as he took out a knife and stabbed the attacking dog in the shoulder three times before it released Duncan’s dog.
The attacking dog died from stab wounds.
Tassi told police she was about to put a leash on her dog when it bounded out the front door and did not blame Duncan for defending his dog. She said her dog had never attacked before.
Both dog owners were referred for dog ordinance requirements and possible violations.
