PYRMONT, CARROLL COUNTY IN - AN UNIDENTIFIED BREED DOG "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE AND ATTACKED AN 8-YEAR-OLD BOY RIDING HIS BIKE

An 8-year-old boy was seriously injured Thursday after he was attacked by a dog at Wildwood mobile home park. 

The boy was riding his bicycle when a dog became aggressive and bit him several times in the shoulder and upper arm, Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said.

A young friend saw the attack and screamed, which caused the dog to flee back to its property, he said. 

The boy was taken to a local hospital with torn flesh and several puncture wounds. He underwent surgery about 7 p.m. Thursday.

"Based on the initial feedback we're receiving from family, he will come through OK," Leazenby said. "But the injuries were somewhat graphic, from what I understand."

From the behaviors displayed by both the unknown breed, and the unknown breed's owner, I'm going to guess that it was a Chihuahua. We all know Chihuahuas are the most aggressive dog out there. They can easily reach the shoulder area of a child riding on a bicycle. The fact that the Chihuahua was shot, is further proof of what breed it was. We all know it takes bullets to stop a rampaging Chihuahua.

It is common that Chihuahuas are not immunized as their owners are the most irresponsible fur mommies out there. Not to mention always allowing their Chihuahuas to run free. Rabid Chihuahuas are a menace to society, and something needs to be done.

I'm not trying to make light of the situation. I feel terrible for this child, and I'm keenly aware that it was a pit bull that did this. I only hope that someday, we will stop believing the lies of the pit bull apologists, and put a stop to pit bull attacks. Children have the right to ride their bicycles anywhere in this country, without fear of being attacked by a worthless pit bull.
