GRAPHIC VIDEO: Pit bull attacks Orthodox Jewish toddler in Spring Valley after being out on the loose multiple times in recent weeks.
_____________________________________________________________

A shocking video posted to social media appears to show a dog brutally attacking a 3-year-old boy on a upstate New york street Thursday afternoon.
The toddler can be seen in the footage playing with a group of friends outside a residence in Spring Valley in Rockland County when a black dog suddenly charges at him from across the street.
The friends scatter in fear as the black dog chomps down on the boy and drags him along the pavement, leaving him with a bloody puncture wound on his neck and deep scratches on his cheek, a photo posted to Twitter shows.
The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital where his condition was unknown late Thursday, according to News 12.
The dog was reportedly returned to its owner. The Spring Valley police department is looking into the bloody incident to determine whether the dog has a history of violence.
The unidentified victim is a young Jewish boy, according to the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council of Hudson Valley.

I watched the video. It was sickening. The dog tossed the child around like a rag doll. I have only ever seen a dog do this with a small toy, never a precious child. Neighbors had been calling & calling police about its owner letting it run loose. You can easily read between the lines and figure they were not complaining about a mellow friendly dog ambling around the block. Known menacing animal running loose, negligent owner, negligent cops. This attack is the logical result. No dog should run loose period. Letting your dog run loose is animal neglect and letting it menace the neighborhood and then maul a toddler should be a felony. But of course owner gets to keep the dog on a 10 day home "quarantine." Because they are so great at confining their animals.

This is SO messed up! Chicken wire fencing to contain a pit bull? Yeah, we all can see how well that worked. The pit bull was probably spending its life in the yard because the owner didn't want to deal with it. They're such great dogs though. As long as they're well socialized (never are), properly vaccinated (rarely), have responsible owners (nutters are not known to be responsible), and are spayed and neutered (backyard breeders are more common than a neutered shelter pit bull). And there you have it, a recipe for disaster. I mean, the easy, simple, and most effective way to make sure a pit bull does not randomly attack someone, or their pet.
