LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – A man was airlifted to a Los Angeles hospital after two pit bulls attacked him and his Jack Russell terrier on Santa Catalina Island.
The attack, which occurred Wednesday on the Avalon Pier, was caught on cellphone video by a tourist.
The victim, John Brady of Huntington Beach, told CBS2 Thursday from his hospital bed that he had taken a boat trip out to Catalina with his dog, Josh. He said the two were strolling on the pier when  TWO 11-YEAR-OLD PIT BULLS  went after his dog. When he attempted to protect Josh, the pit bulls came after him, ripping out a piece of his calf and biting both his arms, he said. Avalon Harbor Patrol officers eventually pulled the dogs off of him. Brady was airlifted to UCLA Harbor Medical Center.
“They attacked my little dog, Josh,” Brady said. “Almost killed him, almost killed me.”

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the pit bulls are owned by a woman who lives on a boat in Avalon. She agreed to have both of them euthanized, deputies said.
Brady told CBS2 he will have to undergo numerous surgeries. Meanwhile, Josh underwent surgery Thursday for a gash under his leg. He is expected to make a full recovery.
“My dog is alive, and I put my body over him because he’s my best friend in the world,” Brady said.
There was no word on whether any charges would be filed in the case.

Pit bulls just don't stop once they start. It is sickening to see the one pit bull attacking the other pit bull. NORMAL dogs do not do this.

People and animals are attacked all of the time, thanks to pit bulls. Your local shelter has 200 of them waiting for their furever homes. Won't you become an insane fur mommy and bring 4 nanny dogs to your home? They are the best, most loyal, wiggle butts.

Anyone watching this could see why pit bulls are sometimes referred to as "land sharks." The predatory attack, the large piece of Mr. Brady's calf bitten away and the way they even turn on each other in their frenzy.

At 11 years old I have to suspect the dogs have given their owner evidence of their dog aggressive nature before. Owners' tolerance for their pit bulls ' aggression and shelters' continued promotion of these vicious animals is insanity.

Someone I know who fosters dogs, recently had a dog aggressive pit bull in their home until it could be placed with a pit bull rescue willing to take a dog with aggression issues. This person saw nothing wrong with it because the animal only disliked other dogs. I asked, what about those dogs' owners who try to protect their pets? No answer. There is no magic place in the country or single dog home where powerful aggressive dogs can live out their days without being a menace to the rest of society.

The only reason the owner of the pits gave them up so easily is because they were about to croak anyways! That plus she knew the neighbors were probably ready to drown them.
