DURHAM NC - A WOMAN IS LISTED IN SERIOUS CONDITION AFTER BEING ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL MIX ON EASTER SUNDAY - A NEIGHBOR WAS FORCED TO SHOOT THE DOG TO GET AID TO HER!!!


  (WTVD) --


A Durham woman is fighting for her life after being attacked by a dog over the weekend.

It happened at a home on Bernice Street around 3:41 a.m. on Sunday.

The dog was shot by a neighbor who witnessed the attack.

The woman is still listed in serious condition.

Authorities are investigating whether or not the woman was trespassing at the time of the attack.

A neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous said the woman's screams woke her up and that her partner had to shoot the dog in order to get aid to the woman.

The owner of the dog, Angelo James, said he wasn't home when all of it happened and he has a "Beware of dogs" sign up. He says his dogs are there for security.

The dog that was shot was his two-year-old  PIT BULL, LABRADOR MIX  named Cupcake, who he says is not usually aggressive.

The neighbor who spoke to ABC11 said the scene was gruesome.

"He said it was the most grizzly thing that he's ever seen... It was just horrific."

"I just wish that it was something that could've been done on her end that would've prevented all of this," said the dog's owner. "Her getting ate or my dog getting shot."

"'I just wish that it was something that could've been done on her end that would've prevented all of this,' said the dog's owner. 'Her getting ate or my dog getting shot.'"

WHAT?!

The prevention comes from pit bull owners, and since that NEVER HAPPENS, we need breed specific legislation!

Pit bull owners cannot handle basic dog ownership, and that is why they don't want BSL! Why should they be held to a higher level of dog ownership for their inherently dangerous pit bulls?

Slapping up a BEWARE OF DOGS sign is meaningless if the victim was on her own property! It sounds like the pit bull reached the magical mauling age of two!

What was Angelo James protecting with his pit bulls? It sounds like there was more than one! He wasn't home at the time?

I just watched the video after posting my first comment. Insert eyeroll here.

FOUR PIT BULLS! The sidewalk is right next to the fence! The victim was walking a pit bull! Gee, I wonder why there's all this mayhem? Maybe Angelo can adopt the victim's pit bull?

Only nutters!
