A Tuscaloosa County woman says she still has nightmares about what happened to her dog last week. WVTM 13's Chip Scarborough has the story.


WVTM 13, CHIP SCARBOROUGH EXPLAINS WHAT LED TO THE VIOLENT DEATHS OF TWO DOGS, WITH ANOTHER INJURED. CHIP: MARIA ORNELAS SAYS SHE STILL HAS NIGHTMARES ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO HER DOG LAST WEEK.  IT’S SO SCARY. VERY SCARY. CHIP: ORNELAS SAYS HER NEIGHBORS ' ’ TWO PIT BULLS RAN INTO HER BACKYARD AND ATTACKED HER GREAT PYRANESE, WHO WAS CHAINED TO A TREE. SHE SAYS WHEN HER ATTEMPTS TO STOP THEM WITH A PLASTIC PIPE DIDN’T WORK, SHE AND A NEIGHBOR GRABBED A MACHETE AND AX TO FIGHT THEM OFF.

MY DOG’S LIFE OR OTHER DOGS ' ’ LIFE. CHIP: THE PIT BULLS’ OWNER SAYS THEY WERE PROVOKED, ANOTHER DOG RAN INTO HIS YARD, PROMPTING THE PITS TO CHASE IT. HE SAYS HIS DOGS HAVE NEVER HARMED ANYONE AND THE ACTIONS HIS NEIGHBORS TOOK WERE UNNECESSARY. 

SHERIFF RON ABERNATHY SAYS WHEN HIS DEPUTIES GOT TO THE SCENE, ONE OF THE PIT BULLS WAS ALREADY DEAD, THE OTHER’S INJURIES WERE SO BAD, A DEPUTY SHOT IT.  IF YOUR ANIMAL GOES ON SOMEBODY’S ELSE PROPERTY AND THERE ARE KIDS AROUND AND STUFF LIKE THAT, THEN INDIVIDUALS HAVE TO DO WHAT THEY THINK IS NECESSARY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM YOUR ANIMAL.

What a load of baloney from the pit owner! So she said her dogs chased another dog from their yard to their neighbors, where they attacked the great Pyrenees. 1. So your yard isn't properly fenced off, allowing dogs to come and go? 2. You saw it and did nothing (or was it later revealed on security camera)? I'm guessing she isn't the same neighbor who help fend off her sweet wiggle butts. The pitbulls then redirected their aggression on the Pyrenees, which is a little odd as they are notorious for sticking to their prey but not impossible. What amazes me the most is that these pit owners don't get the fact that when you hit their fighting breed these dogs don't flee back to their own territory! Once that killing mindset kicks in you can hit them with anything and they will continue their attack! These dogs where hacked to the point they were pretty much dead, this doesn't happen with other breeds (except perhaps guarding breeds).

Very sad. The pitbulls would not have died that way if their owner had simply kept them at home. However, pitbull owners simply are unable to understand that they must confine their dogs. By now, the owner of these pitties most likely has obtained new pitbulls.

Seriously, if your animal is on someone else's property, all bets are off. It is your responsibility as a pet owner to contain, therefore, protect, your pet. Pit bull owners just don't get it. The person responsible for the deaths of these two pit bulls is the pit bulls' owner who failed to keep them confined. Period.

The pit bull owners would rather see you or your pet dead. It is never their fault that their maulers get out, there is always some excuse that they will dream up. If another dog ran into the pit bulls' yard, that dog would have been attacked on the spot.

I have a machete ready for the pit bull across the street. We all have to weaponize ourselves for the weaponized dogs that have invaded our neighborhoods.

Has anyone noticed that nutters never apologize? I'm sorry that you had to defend the life of your dog against my two wiggle butts, they just wanted to play!

Glad these people were willing and able to defend their pets and selves from the roaming maulers.

Sans a chainsaw, a machete and an ax ought to let the franken-maulers get a taste of their own medicine.
