A DOG ATTACKED FIVE PEOPLE  in New Jersey Tuesday morning, biting a 10-year-old boy and his family and then mauling a woman in an apartment parking lot when they opened the door to get it out, authorities say.

Officials say the boy's uncle had just gotten the PIT BULL THE NIGHT BEFORE. The former owner, a friend of the uncle, gave the uncle the dog two days after the canine bit his wife, though it wasn't clear if the uncle knew that prior.

The uncle went to stay at his sister's place at the Brighton Arms apartment complex in Neptune City and brought the dog along with him Monday night. The next morning, the 10-year-old boy asked his uncle to see the new pup. When the uncle opened the bedroom door, the dog jumped at the child, biting his arm, and attacking the uncle and the boy's mother as well, officials said.

Someone managed to open the front door of the apartment and the dog ran out, pouncing on a woman in the complex parking lot moments after she had dropped off her baby for day care at another unit, officials said.

The mauled woman's nephew heard her screams for help and ran out of their apartment, heroically jumping on the dog and pulling it off her, police said. The nephew, 22-year-old Henry Ganchier, suffered a minor scratch. Police arrived and helped Ganchier pull the dog into a patrol car. 

Ganchier's aunt was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but was expected to survive, authorities said. Three of the other victims also went to the hospital; they were expected to be OK. Meanwhile, police are calling Ganchier a hero. 

Neptune City Public Safety Director Edward Kirschenbaum said if Ganchier's aunt had been running a few minutes later with her baby, the infant could have been severely injured or killed. The dog is in the custody of the SPCA.

When a pit bull starts showing its true colors, it's dirt nap time, not "new forever home time". The responsible thing to do is humanely euthanize aggressive pit bulls, but no. Make it someone else's, or several other people's problems.

I'm ok with dirt napping an aggressive pit any way possible, as soon as possible.

Of course he knew! When someone pushes a dog on you wouldn't your first question be why? The previous owner is a total @$$ as well, giving a dog that bites to a family with a child!?! This world is just full of idiots! I hope they put the pit down, the only good pit is a dead one.

I read it wrong, I'm guessing the uncle was single? Maybe living with his sister? Anyway, taking that pit too his sisters where two young kids live is unforgivable.

Never play "pass the pit bull", "pin the tail on the pit bull", "ring around the pit bull" "red rover, red rover, let pit bull come over", "tag your pit", "hide and go seek", or "pit bull in the graveyard".

It's frowned upon to re-gift, it's even worse to re-pit bull. Besides, how do you know how the pit bull was raised? If it was properly socialized? I mean, isn't that what makes a good pit bull v. a bad one?
