TROIS-RIVIERES, QUEBEC CANADA - AN OFFICER WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL DURING A SEARCH OF A RESIDENCE

Translated by Google:
The agent was on the balcony of the house where there were also TWO DOGS PIT BULL BREED. One of them attacked the police and bit deep leg.
The bite was so deep that the police had to be rushed to hospital for treatment.
The police do not know if the dogs were trained to protect the scene, but insist they will not remain there. They intend to file a complaint against the owner of the animal.
At the rear of the residence, the Sûreté du Québec conducted the seizure of 280 cannabis plants and the arrest of a suspect, a 40 year old man known to police and history.
The search was made in the context of the Shear operation in collaboration with the RCMP and the military, said the spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec, Annie Thibodeau.
"The plants were detected first by air today and this has led to an arrest," she added.
The suspect is expected to appear at the Trois-Rivières courthouse.

INDIANAPOLIS IN - A PIT BULL ESCAPED THROUGH A WINDOW AND SET OUT TO KILL SOMETHING - SEVERAL STREETS AWAY - A PUPPY OUTSIDE PLAYING WITH CHILDREN AROUND - A HERO APPEARED - A YOUNG MOTHER WHO HAD A LICENSED TO CARRY .38 !!!



VIDEO

In a story you'll see only on RTV6, we're talking to a southeast-side mother who used her gun for the very first time ever in order to save her children.
Mariah Hubbard, 23, is a mother of three.
She says she loves dogs and would never hurt one for no reason, but over the weekend, she was given no other choice.
She ran outside when she heard screams to find a large PIT BULL  attacking her neighbor’s puppy.
“Both of her paws were crushed,” neighbor Jessica Adkins said. “She was bleeding out of her nose. She was bleeding out of her mouth.”

Other neighbors we spoke to confirm that nothing they did would scare the dog away.
“He was coming back, and coming back. He was not stopping. He was going to kill,” Neighbor Tracy Bentley said.
The pit bull was alone and had no tags, and Maria says he was soon charging toward her kids.
That’s when she made the decision to pull out her .380 caliber gun, and for the first time ever, fire it. She legally owns the gun, but it didn’t make it any easier for her.
“I wasn’t going to take the chance of a dog tearing my kids apart,” Mariah said. “And that’s what was going to happen.”
She soon learned the dog belonged to a neighbor several streets away, who said the dog had escaped through a window.
She’s now pleading with the city’s dog owners.
“Keep your dog on a chain – on a leash – in the yard,” Mariah said. “You have to supervise your dog just like your kids. If they get out, you never know what could happen.”
Police tell us no laws were broken in the case because she was clearly defending herself and her children, and owned the gun she used.


MONTREAL QUEBEC CANADA - THE CITY HAS ENACTED A NEW LAW BANNING THE ADOPTION AND PURCHASE OF NEW PIT BULLS AND REGULATIONS ON THOSE ALREADY THERE...AND...THEIR OWNERS MUST PASS A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK !!!

The city of Montreal has enacted a controversial new law banning the adoption and purchase of pit bulls while also requiring strict new regulations on the breed. If the requirements are not met, the dogs can be seized and euthanized.
The measure, which goes into effect Monday, comes in the wake of the death of a woman who was killed in attack in June by a dog described as a pit bull.
The breed-specific law requires that owners of American Staffordshire terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers and American pit bull terriers — as well as pit bull mixes and any dog with similar characteristics  — must apply for a special permit by the end of the year in order to keep the animal, according to the Montreal Gazette.
The dogs must also be sterilized, vaccinated for rabies, and microchipped and they will have to be muzzled while on the streets and be kept on a leash no longer than four feet. Additionally........http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/whats-now/sd-me-pit-bulls-banned-montreal-20160929-story.html

THEIR OWNERS MUST PROVE THEY DO NOT HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD THAT INCLUDES VIOLENCE.

DALLAS TX - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL CHEWED THROUGH A GATE AND INVADED ELIZABETH KILGORE'S BACKYARD - HER SON RUSHED TO HER AID AND THE MEAT GRINDER LATCHED ON TO HIM AND HIS MOTHER WAS FORCED TO GRAB A KNIFE AND STAB IT TO SAVE HER SON!!!



A Texas woman grabbed a knife and stabbed a neighbor's loose  PIT BULL  as it bit her son during a vicious attack in their backyard.

The dog, which later died from its injuries, had bitten through a gate before ambushing Elizabeth Kilgore and her son Cody late Wednesday afternoon.

Cody was left with with a bloody gash on his thigh after the pit bull locked its teeth on him during the attack as he tried to save his mom. 

He also suffered injuries to his foot, according to WFAA.

'Physically, I'm in a lot of pain,' Cody told the station following the attack as he showed a bleeding bruise on his leg. 'I'm in a lot of pain.'

Elizabeth said after the loose dog bit through the gate, it first jumped on her, causing her to scream for help, which was when Cody came running outside.

The pit bull, which later died from its injuries, had bitten through a gate and jumped on Elizabeth Kilgore in their backyard (their Dallas home  above) who screamed for help when Cody came running out and was then attacked by the dog

As the terrifying and chaotic ordeal unfolded, the pit bull then started attacking Cody, who yelled for someone to stab and kill the dog.

'It was not going down without a fight,' Cody recounted of the aggressive dog.

A frightened Elizabeth, who said the pit bull was 'trying to get Cody's neck' grabbed a knife and stabbed the dog before it ran off injured into the neighborhood.

"He was hurting my kid,"  Elizabeth told WFAA.  "I didn't know what to do."  


While the pit bull was on the run, police told a nearby school, Kleberg Elementary, to remain inside until they were able to contain the dog.

The dog was found roaming the area a few blocks away and was taken to Dallas Animal Services who confirmed it had died after succumbing to its stabbing injuries.

Police are putting the owners of the pit bull that attacked the mother and son on notice about the bite.

TOPEKA KS - THE 2 PIT BULLS THAT KILLED PIPER DUNBAR, 2, HAVE BEEN EUTHANIZED - BUT THE OWNERS OF DOGS THAT KILL DON'T ALWAYS FACE CONSEQUENCES

(WIBW) -- Topeka Police confirmed the two pitbulls that killed 2-year-old Piper Dunbar have been euthanized.

Dogs involved in such incidents usually end up being put down, but their owner's don't always face consequences. That was the case in the most recent fatal dog attack in Northeast Kansas, prior to Piper.

2-year-old Savannah Mae Edwards was killed in 2012 after being attacked by a pit bull at her relative’s house in Topeka.
“Generally speaking, when you’re talking about dogs and what they do, the people who are going to be liable are the owners of the dog,” explained Washburn Law professor Jeffrey Jackson.
The dog was euthanized at the owner’s request, but the District Attorney’s office did not file charges against the home owner.
That wasn't the case for a similar tragedy in Geary County 15 years earlier.
11-year-old Christopher Wilson was killed after being attacked by three rottwielers while he and his little brother were waiting for the school bus in Junction City.
The dogs' owner, Sabine Davidson, was convicted of involuntary second-degree murder. Her husband pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter.
“Is there evidence that would show that the owner knew or should have known that the dog has vicious tendencies? The easiest way to show that is if the dog has bitten someone before,” explained Jackson.
While the rottwielers did not fall under the “one bite” criteria, court testimony indicated Davidson had been training the rottwielers to serve as protection dogs.
“She raised the dogs to be attack dogs and did not in fact give them proper training,” said Jackson.
As far as the possibility of Piper Dunbar's father or the owner of the dogs who was staying with him being charged -- Jackson says there are too many missing facts to tell.
“Was he negligent in inviting her to stay? What did he know about the dogs? There's just a host of things that make it hard to predict,” said Jackson.
It's not just children who have fallen victim to fatal dog attacks in Northeast Kansas.
71-year-old Jimmie McConnell of Kansas City was killed by her neighbor's pitbull while she was gardening in 2006.
The dog’s owner was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years in prison.

SALINE COUNTY AR - NEIGHBORS SAY THEIR PETS ARE BEING ATTACKED AND KILLED BY A DOG OWNER THAT MOVED IN LAST YEAR WITH 2 PIT BULLS AND A BULLDOG MIX

A neighborhood in Saline County is on edge after they say their animals are being attacked by one man's dogs.
Neighbors say the problems began after the aggressive dog's owner moved in last winter.  Since then, one neighbor's dog has been killed and several others have been attacked.
People who live in the area say the three dogs are often together.  They believe two of them are PIT BULLS, and one of them is a BULLDOG MIX.
They've called the Saline County sheriff's department which has sent a deputy out to respond each time, but he says his hands are tied because of a no leash law. 
Steve Glover, whose dog suffered a broken jaw, says he's prepared to defend his Siberian husky or other neighbors' animals if it happens again.
"If the dogs come on my property and are aggressive toward a human, an animal or anything else, I have the right to kill it."
Glover has spent more than $750 in vet bills for his dog, Sitka.
So far five different families have filed complaints with the Saline County sheriff's department.

ST. CLOUD, OSCEOLA COUNTY FL - VERY BRAVE ALEXANDRA MURESAN WAS TAKING HER YORKIES FOR AN EARLY MORNING WALK WHEN A PIT BULL MIX CAME OUT OF NOWHERE AND ATTACKED THEM - SHE FOUGHT AND SAVED HER DOGS' LIVES AND THE PIT TURNED ON HER!!!

Alexandra Muresan said she tries to take her Yorkies for a walk at odd hours in an attempt to minimize the possibility of being attacked by other dogs.
At around 5:30 a.m. Monday, what she calls her "worst nightmare" came true. A dog bigger than her dogs came at her before she could figure out what to do.
“Right around the corner from out of nowhere,” she said. “I didn’t even have time to realize what was happening.”
As she fought to get one of her pets out of the mouth of the PIT BULL MIX, it would go after the other, she said. Finally, she let her dogs off the leash so they could escape.
Then the dog went after her.
“When I finally managed to get them out of his mouth and tried to run, he grabbed me by my back,” Muresan said.
Muresan had a photo of the red bite marks in her flesh to prove her story. Her forearm, which was also gashed, is now bandaged. Her hands have red marks and scrapes. Despite that, after the attack was over, Muresan said her first concern was for her dogs, she found waiting back at her house bloodied and injured.
“I took my dogs for emergency surgery before I checked myself into the hospital,” she said.
During her struggle with the dog, she was able to pull off its harness with tags indicating its owners live just a few doors from her.
At Osceola County Animal Control, Director Kim Staton told WESH 2 News that the dog believed responsible is a female pit bull mix.
“The owner told us the dog has not returned since yesterday,” Staton said.

Muresan, a cosmetology student, said her medical bills could run into the thousands as a result of the incident.
When they find the dog believed responsible, Staton said they will quarantine it for ten days to ensure it’s not rabid. The dog owner is responsible for those fees and civil fines of up to $150, a county spokesman said, if the dog is deemed aggressive.

LEAGUE CITY, GALVESTON COUNTY TX - A MAN AND HIS WIFE ARE SUING A DOG OWNER AFTER HER DOG LEAPED ONTO THE MAN AS THE COUPLE WERE TAKING A WALK IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD AND ATTACKED HIM

A Galveston County husband and wife are suing a League City dog owner, alleging the defendant's dog bit the husband and caused injuries. 
Joe Soriano and Cora Soriano filed a lawsuit Sept. 7 in Galveston County District Court against Tikeela Monique Evans-Johnson, alleging she failed to warn the plaintiffs of the dog’s vicious and dangerous propensities.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 9, 2016, Joe Soriano and Cora Soriano were walking around their neighborhood in League City when, without warning, Evans-Johnson's dog abruptly leaped onto Joe Soriano. The suit says the DOG  bit and deeply punctured Soriano's left buttock, causing him physical pain, mental anguish, lost earning capacity and medical care expenses. 
The plaintiffs allege Evans-Johnson failed to properly restrain her dog, failed to prevent her dog from biting Soriano and failed to assist in breaking up her dog’s attack.
The Sorianos seek trial by jury, monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million, plus pre- and post-judgment interest and all other relief. They are represented by attorneys William R. Edwards III and Alison J. Logan of The Edwards Law Firm in Corpus Christi.

PEACHTREE CITY GA - A WOMAN WAS WALKING HER LEASHED CAIRN TERRIER IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD WHEN 2 PIT BULLS CHARGED OUT OF A YARD AND ATTACKED THEM BOTH AND BIT A NEIGHBOR WHO CAME TO THEIR AID

A woman walking her dog in a neighborhood on Peachtree City’s west side on Sept. 18 and a man coming to her aid were bitten on by  TWO PIT BULLS  after they attacked the woman’s small dog.
An officer arrived at the Tower Road residence off MacDuff Parkway just after 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 18 in response to a dog bite report. Upon arrival, the officer said two pit bulls were standing in a yard, barking at him, according to police reports.
The resident making the complaint was contacted and told the officer she had been walking her leashed dog on the street toward Wynnmeade Parkway when a small pit bull ran out of a yard, followed by a larger dog, reports said.
The woman said the two dogs began attacking her Cairn Terrier, telling the officer that her dog was getting “tore up” so she laid on top of her dog and was subsequently bitten on the right wrist and right knee,” reports said.
The owner of the small Cairn Terrier said a Good Samaritan neighbor ran to her and began throwing the two attacking dogs off her, adding that he, too, was bitten in the process.
A second neighbor ran to the scene and began yelling at the dogs, during which time the dogs returned to their yard then ran off a few minutes later, reports said.
EMS units arrived at the scene and treated the dog bite victims. Animal control was also notified and arrived at the scene.
The owner of the pit bulls was notified and arrived at the residence. Reports said the incident is being investigated by animal control.



GREENEVILLE TN - A "RESPONSIBLE" PIT OWNER - ACTING ERRATIC, SWEATING PROFUSELY, TALKING OUT OF HIS HEAD AND CLEARLY ON SOME TYPE OF STIMULANT - THREW A CONCRETE BLOCK THROUGH A NEIGHBOR'S WINDOW AND SICCED HIS PIT ON DEPUTIES

Robert Graham
A man who allegedly threw a concrete block through the window of a house and then tried to turn a PIT BULL DOG  loose on sheriff's deputies Monday will appear Friday in General Sessions Court.
Robert Dewayne Graham, 47, of 14111 Bailey St., is charged with four counts of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, vandalism under $500 and public intoxication.

Deputies were called to the house of a neighbor of Graham's after he allegedly threw "a large piece of block through the window of (his) house," Sgt. Toby Price said in a report.
The homeowner's 17-year-old nephew was sleeping on a couch under the window, which shattered and "showered the victim (with glass)," inflicting small cuts on his shoulder, a report said.
The piece of block "just missed the victim and landed on the floor," it added.
Deputies found Graham standing in front of his house and asked him if he had any weapons on him. He told them he had a knife and when told he was going to be patted down, responded, "You're not touching me," the report said.
Graham "squared off" facing deputies, who drew Tasers. Graham allegedly pulled a box cutter out of his pocket, the report said.
After a brief standoff, Graham ran through his house out the back door and allegedly attempted "to un-snap his tied pit bull and 'sic 'em'" on deputies, the report said.
Graham pushed the dog toward a deputy, telling the dog to "get him," the report said.
Graham ran into woods behind his house and allegedly ignored commands to stop before being taken into custody, the report said.
Graham was "acting very erratic, sweating profusely, talking out of his head and clearly on some type of stimulant," the report said.
Damage to the neighbor's double-pane window totals about $200.

KLAMATH FALLS OR - A PIT BULL JUMPED A NEIGHBOR'S FENCE AND CHEWED ON THE FACES OF 2 GOATS - 1 GOAT'S FACE WAS SO MESSED UP IT HAD TO BE PUT DOWN - PITS DRUGS GUNS CRIME !!!

Klamath County Animal Control is investigating a dog attack in the Klamath Falls suburbs that led to the death of one goat and serious injuries to another on Saturday.
Chief Animal Control Officer Jim Nielsen said his department is following up on an incident on the 2800 block of Bisbee Street during which a  PIT BULL  jumped the fence of a neighbor's residence and attacked their livestock.
Two goats suffered injuries to their faces, with one animal losing so much tissue it was put down by the owner. No suspects have yet been arrested or cited in the matter and the animal in question has been impounded.
Nearby residents say this was not unexpected from the dog or its owner, Frank Dodd, whom they described as a concern for the entire area. Dodd was incarcerated on a probation violation during the time of the attack and was not released until Monday.
Patricia Gomez, who's mother lives in the neighborhood, said this is not the first incident involving an aggressive dog at Dodd's property.
She said she knows of one time two pitbulls advanced on law enforcement, after which both animals were seized and put down. She said another man had to defend himself with a machete from one of Dodd's dogs when it threatened the man.
“This neighborhood is sick and tired of Frank Dodd and what goes on at Frank Dodd's house,” she said.
Despite an extensive criminal history, Dodd has yet to be charged in Klamath County with an animal-related offense.

CHANDLER AZ - 2 LEASHED PIT BULLS ATTACKED A WOMAN AND HER DOG WALKING IN A NEIGHBORHOOD PARK


A Chandler woman received 34 staples to her head after TWO PIT BULLS  attacked her and her dog during an early-morning walk. 
Last Monday, Krista Hickman and her dog, Rainier, were walking in a neighborhood park near Pecos and Cooper roads when they came face-to-face with two leashed pit bulls and their owner. 
"The nearest pit bull latched on to (Rainier)," said Clint Hickman, Krista's husband. "They were unable to stop the fight, so my wife jumps in and puts her hand in the dog’s mouth."
Krista was bit on her hand and the second dog clamped down on her skull - ripping a six-by-six-inch piece of skin off her head. 
"They needed 34 staples to ring around and close it," Hickman told 12 News.
Rainier -- who the family says is not aggressive -- sustained several lacerations and now has drainage tubs hanging from his face.
Both dog and owner are expected to recover. Hickman says his wife will need to visit a plastic surgeon to ensure her wounds will heal correctly.
Amid the chaos, Hickman said his wife neglected to get the contact information for the other dog owner and instead chose to seek medical attention.
The couple posted fliers throughout their neighborhood asking for information, but so far it's been unsuccessful.
Maricopa County Animal Care and Control tells 12 News they’ve identified the owner and both dogs are licensed and rabies vaccinated. They’re now under an in-home quarantine.
THE OWNERS WERE ALSO NOT ISSUED ANY CITATIONS.

WINDSOR ON CANADA - A BULLMASTIFF FATALLY MAULED A TINY SHIH TZU PUPPY IN THE SMALL DOG SECTION OF A PUBLIC DOG PARK

Gina Bourque holds a photo of her dog, Kodi, who was killed by another dog during a visit to a dog park near their home on Henry Ford Centre Drive in Windsor.
UPDATE:  http://windsorstar.com/news/local-news/owner-of-bullmastiff-fined-by-city-for-fatal-dog-attack

Gina Bourque said she watched her four-month-old dog Kodi die between the jaws of the larger dog during an attack at the Ford Test Track dog park.
“The dog’s head was the size of my puppy,” said Bourque. “His jaw was locked on Kodi and I’m hitting the dog and screaming at him and he wouldn’t let go. I was afraid the dog was going to turn on me.”
Bourque said the attack happened Saturday around 11:45 a.m. She had Kodi on the side of the park for small dogs and puppies. Bourque said a woman showed up with a large BULLMASTIFF and let him loose in the puppy side of the park.
“A woman came in with a bullmastiff and she took it on the puppy side and it killed my puppy,” said Bourque. “She said ‘I always bring my dog on this side.’ I wasn’t OK with it and I went up to go get him and the dog lunged at him and got him in its jaws and started shaking him and killed him.”
Bourque said Kodi only weighed 10 pounds.
“He never had a chance.”
Bourque said she’s been to the park many times before but never saw the other woman or her dog.
“All she kept saying was ‘he won’t release when he does this, he won’t release when he does this,’” said Bourque.
When the other dog finally did let go, Bourque scooped up Kodi and rushed him to a veterinarian. She took a photo of the other dog owner’s licence before she left.
Bourque said a witness told her that as soon as she headed to the vet, the bullmastiff owner jumped in a truck and took off. Bourque called police.
Const. Andrew Drouillard said Windsor police received a call around 12:45 p.m. Saturday. They have talked to the bullmastiff owner. Drouillard said police would be handing the case over to the city’s bylaw enforcement department because it doesn’t appear there was any criminal wrongdoing.
Bylaw department officials wouldn’t comment Monday because they had yet to receive the police report.
Bourque said she only had Kodi about three months. Her last dog died of cancer. After a few years, Bourque decided it was time to get another furry companion.
“I decided instead of getting a big dog I’d get a little dog this time, for companionship, someone to love and adore and pamper,” she said. “He loved going to the park. He was the happiest dog I’ve ever seen in my life. He just loved other dogs, he loved attention and other people. He never even barked, he was so sweet.”

BOSTON MA - FELLOW RIDERS AND A DRIVER CALLED FOR HELP AFTER A MAN GOT ON A MBTA BUS WITH HIS PIT BULL DOG

Johnny Sadm.
An MBTA bus passenger in Revere allegedly threatened Transit Police officers with a PIT BULL DOG  whose aggressive behavior had led fellow riders and a driver to call for help Saturday, authorities said.
Johnny Sadm, 19, of Dorchester, allegedly asked the dog, “Do you want to eat them?” — an apparent reference to the officers summoned to Wonderland Station about 8:40 p.m. “Luckily,” department officials said on Twitter, “the dog knew better then to follow lead of owner.”
Sadm was charged with assault, trespassing, and resisting arrest. He also faces a drug possession charge after officers found him with suspected cocaine, according to police.
The officers who first arrived told Sadm that he had to get off the bus because his dog was making fellow passengers feel unsafe, according to police.
“Sadm, using course and foul language, responded by informing the officers he was not getting off the bus and the officers would have to drag him and his dog off,” police said.
Officers eventually cleared the bus, and they put the other passengers on another vehicle. Sadm also left, but police said he “felt the need to shout out insults directed at the officers creating a tumultuous environment.”
He wouldn’t leave the station, police said, and officers tried to arrest him. “However, he violently resisted and attempted to swing his pit bull at the officers,” police said. After he was in custody, Sadm’s dog was released to a female companion.
Sadm is to be arraigned Monday.
It’s up to drivers whether to allow pets on transit vehicles during off-peak hours, according to the MBTA. Those rules don’t apply to service animals, which are always allowed.
