PORT ST. LUCIE FL - A YOUNG BOY WAS ATTACKED IN THE FACE BY THE FAMILY PIT BULL AND HIS MOTHER HAD PART OF HER EAR BITTEN OFF WHEN SHE WENT TO HIS AID



Humane Society officials on the Treasure Coast will determine the fate of a pitbull-mix who attacked a 8-month old child a year from today and a mother and her nine year old son in Port St. Lucie over the weekend.

Master Sergeant Frank Sabol said the mother and her 9-year-old son are recovering after the mother's boyfriend's dog named "Tigger" attacked them.
"The boy had lacerations to his face. The dog actually had pinned him down and was biting his face. When the mother came over and pulled him off, then the dog turned on her," said Sabol.
Sabol said the mother's ear was partially ripped off.

He said the dog's owner, who told investigators he got the animal about a month ago, managed to pull the dog away.

Police say they contacted the previous owner and the owner says the dog had attacked an 8-month-old a year ago. The injuries were not life-threatening.
Sabol said the  PIT BULL/BULLMASTIFF MIX  has been placed with the Humane Society and will be quarentine for 10 days.
Officials will later determine his fate.

I'm glad the mom got some pittie action, instead of just her kid. Keep believing the lies nutters. It only sends your kids to the hospital, and you get part of your ear bitten off. All dogs do this sort of thing. Just last week, a Yorkshire Terrier, a Chihuahua, and a Cocker Spaniel bit off parts of ears off of their owners.
