BRONX NY - A 62-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL MIX AT HIS HOME MAKING IT THE THIRD INCIDENT IN NEW YORK CITY THIS WEEK

CASTLE HILL, The Bronx — A man was attacked by a PIT BULL MIX in the Bronx Saturday morning, the third incident in New York City this week.
The man, 62, was at his home on Randall Avenue in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx about 11:30 a.m., police said. The dog then bit the man in the left arm.
He was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition, according to police.
The pit bull mix was kenneled and taken to animal control in Manhattan.
This is the third dog attack this week and second one within 24 hours.
A boy, 5, was mauled by the family's two pit bulls in East New York Friday evening.
"The father was yelling and screaming, acting hysterical once he heard the dog biting on the baby," a neighbor told PIX11 News Friday night.
The boy, identified as Jeremiah Rivera by neighbors, is in critical condition, police said. He was taken to the nearby hospital but moved to another location for more extensive care.
Last Monday, a 75-year-old Long Island City woman was mauled to death by her mastiff-great dane mix.

All of the advocates for dangerous dogs cannot stem the tide of attacks. No matter how many tutus, and anecdotes, it does not change the fighting history of pit bulls, nor the dangerous nature of Mastiffs.

All of the people that bring home these dangerous dog breeds, let these attacks be a warning to you. Who is going to protect you from your pit bull or Mastiff? You might think these animals will protect you, but think again. Pit bulls are equal opportunity maulers.
