MIAMI FL - A PIT BULL "SOMEHOW OPENED ITS GATE" AND ATTACKED A WOMAN WALKING TO CHURCH WITH HER 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL - THE NUTTER SAYS ITS NOT HIS FAULT AND BESIDES HIS PIT BIT ANOTHER CHILD BACK IN JANUARY AND MIAMI-DADE ANIMAL UNCONTROL TOLD HIM THAT HIS MEAT GRINDER WAS NOT AGGRESSIVE



UPDATE:  PIT EUTHANIZED - https://wsvn.com/news/local/dog-euthanized-after-biting-5-year-old-girl/

MIAMI (WSVN) - A child was rushed to the hospital after she was attacked by a dog while walking to church in Miami.
Doctors at Jackson Memorial Hospital are working to treat the wounds of the 5-year-old girl, identified as Jocelyn, after she was bit by a dog on the leg near Northwest 21st Street and 24th Avenue, Wednesday.
The victim was walking to church with her mother and a family friend when, they said, the dog attacked. “This  PIT BULL  came and bit the little girl, and mom turned away and it bit her too,” said family friend Meryann Ulrick, who witnessed the incident.
The child’s father later showed up at the scene and confronted the dog’s owner, who lives across the street.
The dog owner admitted that his dog is territorial and that another child was bit by the dog in January.
The owner also showed 7News papers from his visit to Miami-Dade Animal Services. He said his dog was observed for several days, and he was told that his dog is not considered aggressive. 
Those who were with Jocelyn say otherwise. “Her mom carried her, her mom carried her away. And it even bit her down there,” said a family friend, pointing to her leg.
The dog owner’s papers indicated that the dog is over 50 pounds and is a bull mix.
The owner said the dog freed himself. “Not my fault that the dog got out,” he said. “I understand that it’s a lot of blood.”
When asked what could be done to prevent the dog from getting out again, he said, “There’s nothing I can do. If he pushes the gate, the gate was closed, he pushed the gate, he got out.”
The family told 7News that Jocelyn is expected to be OK. They said she has to undergo surgery at JMH.

Here is something you can do you heartless pit bull owner. DO NOT leave your pit bull unattended in the backyard! I know it's a stretch to think that you have to babysit your dog at all times to keep your neighborhood safe, but YOU DO! If you don't want that responsibility, then put your pit bull to sleep!

The absolute, obstinate stupidity of pit owners and the collusion of AC is something that sounds like it was written into a bad horror movie. If you cannot keep your animal confined it is not an animal you should own. What if I did that with my cows? "Hi, Sheriff. My cows are out on the highway again? Well, gee, they just won't stay in their pasture and I can't be bothered to fix the gate." Yeah, that'll go over real well. I don't see the difference between cows and dogs. Cows can injure or kill people and they are a definite danger to drivers if they get out on the road. I am responsible for their welfare as well as the welfare of any person they come in contact with. It's the same with a dog, or it should be. And I thought pit bulls were illegal in Miami. Great job AC!

Farmer Jane,

You're right about Miami! How did AC miss this?

In McHenry County, IL, two cattle were loose yesterday. A person called in that the cattle wandering on Route 31. The speed limit is 55 MPH with hills and curves, and I can just imagine what could have happened if the cows were in the road at the wrong time. The cows did make it home with the help of the Sheriff and Conservation police.

The article mentioned that an officer said that this sort of thing happens a lot in rural counties. I worry about deer and coyote crossing the road, I'll add cows to the list.

Nay nay! There IS something you can do, it seems it was done, in spite of you. The mauler was dirtnapped, the only way to guarantee it will never attack again.
