QUEENS NY - A PIT BULL AT THE BABYSITTER'S HOME MAULED A 1-YEAR-OLD GIRL IN THE FACE...ANOTHER "BABY TAKING A BONE FROM A PIT BULL" STORY

UPDATE:  http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/05/02/dog-bites-1-year-old-girl-in-the-face-in-queens/

A 1-year-old girl was in surgery Monday night after she was bitten in the face by a PIT BULL, police said. The girl was with her babysitter at a home on 102nd Street in Jackson Heights Monday evening during the attack.


The two teenage sons of the babysitter had apparently been watching a friend’s pit bull in the backyard of the home shortly before the attack, according to police.  When the babysitter was headed to the backyard to feed the pit bull, she opened a door and the dog came through with a bone in its mouth, police said. The baby girl apparently tried to take the bone from the dog and it lunged forward, biting her in the face, according to police.

The girl was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in critical but stable condition. She was said to have very bad lacerations to her face.  NYPD Emergency Service Unit officers secured the pit bull in a crate and Animal Control Centers later took the dog, according to police. It’s unclear what will happen to the dog.

Police said they don't think there was any criminality, but that an investigation is ongoing.The girl’s family was too distraught to talk on camera. Neighbors, meanwhile, were in shock.

“The animal didn’t seem bad,” one neighbor said. “We’ve seen them for years, and it just never seemed bad.”

Bullshit! How can a pit bull bite a little girl with a bone in its mouth? How can a 1-year-old take a bone from a pit bull?

I think I just came up with a new term. For all the excuses nutters come up with to protect their precious pit bulls (or their friends for whom they are pit bull sitting) "pit bullshit".

Ya, hmmm, something doesn't seem right. It says the boys were watching the pit for a friend but yet the neighbors say it didn't seem bad and they've seen it for years? Or am I just tired and reading it wrong. I know another account of this said the boys had it for only 1 day. And it doesn't make sense for a babysitter to let a child around a dog that's not even theirs...? Especially a pit bull.

Yep, we are all tired and you are not reading it wrong. They all lie and make stupid excuses for their total lack of regard for the welfare of the child...pit breeders (like watching pornography), drugs, guns, crime...all go together...blame the tiny baby who can't even walk good...walked up to a giant charging pit with a bone in its mouth and tried to take it...any sane person would know better!!!
