THIBODAUX, TERREBONNE PARISH LA - A MAN WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL WHEN HE ENTERED A FEMALE ACQUAINTANCE'S HOME...THE PIT WAS STILL LATCHED ON THE MAN'S ARM WHEN DEPUTIES ARRIVED 12 MINUTES LATER SO THEY WERE FORCED TO SHOOT THE MEAT GRINDER OFF HIM

A 43-year-old man was hospitalized following a Pit Bull attack Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
According to a news release from the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office, at 12:15 p.m. Feb. 7 deputies responded to 120 Cortez St. in Thibodaux after receiving reports about a man being mauled by a  MALE PIT BULL.
After deputies arrived at the scene within 12 minutes of receiving the call, they saw the dog still latched on to the man's arm, the news release said.
Authorities said the deputy fired two shots and killed the dog as the animal was still latched on to the victim's arm. The unidentified man suffered injuries to his face from the dog attack, police said.
The victim was treated on the scene by Acadian Ambulance and transported to Thibodaux Regional Hospital, where he underwent surgery and was later released.  Animal Control arrived on scene and collected the dead Pit Bull.
Investigators said the man went to the residence to visit a female acquaintance that was sleeping inside the house at the time. As the man opened the door to enter the home, he was immediately attacked by the woman's Pit Bull, authorities said.
The attack continued into the front yard, and another resident who was passing by called the landlord before the Sheriff's Office was eventually alerted, the news release said.

Nutters will tell you the pit bull was just protecting its property.

Normal people would realize that a sustained attack is not normal, and that pumping a bullet or two into an animal to get it to stop is not normal either.

What do I know? I'm just an uneducated, discriminatory, hateful foamer. I need to adopt a pit bull to really know how wonderful they are.

LOL @ Anon! I love the nutters that ask, "have you ever owned a pit bull?!!!" Like you have no powers of observation unless you've actually had one in your household and no right to make a comment until then.
