ROLLING PRAIRIE IN - A NEIGHBOR'S ADOPTED PIT BULL ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL SEVERELY INJURING HER LEGS AND ARM... AIRLIFTED TO CHICAGO HOSPITAL!



(WNDU)- The La Porte County Animal Control office is looking into a dog attack case involving a  PIT BULL  that left a five-year-old girl severely injured earlier this week.


The attack happened Monday around 8 a.m. CST in the 3000 block of East U.S. 20.
According to a police report, the girl goes to her neighbor's home along U.S. 20 every day before school and her neighbor helps her get on the bus.
On Monday the neighbor called the girl's mother after she had dropped her off and said that one of her dogs had bitten her. The five-year-old was then rushed into the emergency room.
The La Porte County Sheriff's Department said the girl has many bites on both of her legs and her right arm. The injuries were so severe the child had to be airlifted to a hospital in Chicago. We have no word on whether or not she is still in the hospital.
Both the neighbors and family of the girl are very shaken by what happened and said in a police report that this was "out of the ordinary" for their dogs.
“A good note on this one, nothing previous was reported on this dog, it just was an unfortunate situation," said animal control officer Christy Satoski. "The dog is vaccinated for rabies which is a plus.”
For now the dog that bit the girl is in quarantine at home because it was vaccinated. After 10 days animal control will follow up with the owner to make sure the dog isn't sick or didn't have any changes in behavior.
By law in Indiana, a bite report must be filed if your animal bites someone.
We learned the owners adopted two Pit Bull mix dogs in November of 2017 from La Porte Animal Control. They said the hardest thing about adoption is you don't always know the dog's history and that can be a problem with any dog breed, it's not Pit Bull specific.
Their biggest advice is to use common sense. Any animal of any breed has the capability of biting and hurting you.
“If a dog is coming at you and barking at you, you need to stay away," Satoski said. "Don’t run away from the animal just kind of slowly back up. You don’t want to make any sudden kind of movements. Cats can do the same exact thing. If she’s got her ears pinned back and she’s hissing at you, don’t go up to it.”
La Porte County Animal Control said it’s best to approach with your hand first and not your face, which can be more difficult for kids.

“They’re at the height of the animals and they’re right at face level so if an animal looks like it’s not friendly, don’t go up to it please," Satoski said.
The best way you can protect you or your family is by learning more about the breed of your animal.
“Follow up on your breeds," Satoski said. "Do research on your dog. It doesn’t matter what breed it is just do your research. Find out as much information if it’s not from a shelter on the parents and use your common sense.”
La Porte County Animal Control said it has no problem going out and teaching children in the community about how to be safe around animals.
If you have a group of children you would like to have learn about animal safety, call the office at 219-326-1637.

NORTH RUIMVELDT, GEORGETOWN GUYANA - 3 PIT BULLS "SOMEHOW GOT OUT" AND MAULED A WOMAN WALKING TO A RELATIVE'S HOUSE ... DESPITE SPORADIC MAULINGS AND DEATHS MOSTLY BY PIT BULLS, NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE ABOUT DANGEROUS DOGS



Ingrid Wilson, the woman who was attacked in North Ruimveldt, Georgetown by THREE PIT BULLS, received over 70 stitches for her injuries and is currently at home recovering.
Wilson was on her way to her son’s nearby home around 6 am on Sunday when she was viciously attacked by three pit bulls that escaped from a neighbour’s yard.
The three dogs pounced on the woman, who fell on the ground. They bit her to the face, neck and arms and the attack only stopped after another neighbour realised what was happening and fended off the dogs with a piece of wood.
Wilson was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was treated. According to one of her sons, who did not want to be named, she was treated for two bites to her face, both at the side of her mouth, and about four more on her left hand, which she used to fight the dogs off.
After receiving the stitches, she was released around 4 pm on Sunday from the hospital and she is currently at home recovering.
“So far she’s not doing all of that well because she’s going through a lot of pain right now. She’s just complaining about the pain but we are trying our best to help her,” he told Stabroek News yesterday.
He also explained that the owners of the dog along with his family visited the police station yesterday and the attack is currently being investigated.
Despite several reports over the years, nothing has been done to curb the sporadic attacks by dangerous dogs.
In 2016 a Leonora, West Coast Demerara, man was mauled to death by pit bulls. The dogs had also reportedly attacked two other men at Para Field.
The two injured men were identified as Ramanand Bhikam, 62, of Stewartville Housing Scheme, WCD, and Wilbert Adams, of Cornelia Ida, WCD, who were attacked between 3am and 5am on September 15, 2016.
The homeless man who died as a result of the attack was later identified as Bashkar Chandar, of Section ‘C,’ Golden Grove, East Bank Demerara. The post-mortem examination of the man had stated that he died as a result of multiple injuries due to a canine attack.
There have also been several reports of dangerous dogs escaping from their owners’ yards and attacking people of various ages, including children.
A letter published in this newspaper on October 12th, 2017, stated that a man who lives in Prospect, East Bank Demerara, has more than 20 dogs that are very ferocious. Despite the large number of dogs, the man reportedly does not have a gate or fenced yard, and he is surrounded by three schools – the Covent Garden Primary, Kindergarten and Secondary Schools.
“Every day these dogs attack the schoolchildren either to or from school, and even sometimes others. Some might throw a small brick at them, but they would be soundly vilified by either the man or his wife. Most children are afraid to pass that area (it is the only street that can be used to get to the school) due to these ferocious dogs. I am a concerned parent who is asking the relevant authorities to kindly look into the matter, because I have two children: one attends the primary and another the secondary school,” the letter stated, while adding that the author’s daughter was attacked by the dogs a few years before.
In 2014, the Guyana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA) had said that the legislation on dangerous dogs is even more crucial after a woman, Joan Carter, was mauled to death by pit bulls.
The GSPCA had called for a more purposeful approach to the matter and had pointed out that in Trinidad and Tobago an amendment to the Dog Control Act in 2014 specifically addressed the responsibilities of ownership of a dangerous dog breed, and in relation to the pit bull, the dog has to be registered and micro-chipped while the owner has to have a secured surrounding.
Additionally, it had said that the issue can no longer be ignored, especially with the practice of dog fighting and that while the proposed measures may not prevent recurrences, it believed that properly-enforced legislation would be a big step in addressing the issue of dangerous dogs.
Since then there has been no headway in tabling legislations to address the issue.

RIVIERA BEACH FL - A CITY EMPLOYEE WAS HOSPITALIZED AFTER AN ATTACK BY 2 PIT BULL MIXES

A Riviera Beach city worker had to be taken to the hospital Tuesday morning following a dog attack.
According to a Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control spokesperson, the worker was bitten in several places around 9:50 a.m. at Broadway and Blue Heron Boulevard. This is near a Walgreens.
The dogs were loose at the time. They ran up and attacked the city employee as he was driving in a golf cart. Some of the dog bites were described as severe.
The victim, whose name has not been released, was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center.  
Animal Care and Control impounded the dogs and puppies that were with the dogs. 
Riviera Beach officers at the scene initially said the dogs were  PIT BULLS, but Palm Beach Animal Care and Control later said the dogs were PIT BULL MIXES.
The dogs will be quarantined for 10 days. Investigators will try and determine if they should be labeled dangerous.

COLBERT WASHINGTON - A NEIGHBOR'S MEAT GRINDERS JUMPED A FENCE THAT IS TOO LOW TO CONTAIN THEM AND BEGAN CIRCLING AND ATTACKING A CHILD'S FACE THAT WAS BEING HELD UP BY HER FATHER!

Spokane, North Idaho News & Weather KHQ.com



It’s hard to tell from the cell phone video taken by Adam Rucker’s neighbor, but look closely and you’ll see him holding his daughter, Ellie.
“That’s our neighbor and his kids, and they can’t go inside their home because those two dogs jumped the fence again,” the neighbor said in the video.
You’ll also see someone in an orange shirt, frantically running around Rucker and his daughter. That’s someone from the house where the dogs came from – specifically, the owner of a pitbull at the center of a neighborhood-wide scare.
"A  PITBULL-MIX and another brown dog  started circling us and one of the dog owners sons, I believe an 8th grader, hopped the fence, trying to get the dog's to get back to their yard… But was unsuccessful in getting them. They were barking, being very aggressive and one of them bit my daughter in the face,” Rucker said.
Ellie is still recovering. Her eye is still too swollen to open and is scheduled for a medical examination this week.
With the attack happening in a field right behind their backyard, Ellie’s injury hits home for the Rucker’s. But according to both the household and other residents in the area, part of the neighborhood is concerned with the backyard from where the dog’s jumped from – specifically, a fence they believe is too low.
"This is very much a community concern with these dogs being there, having a history of jumping over the fence and now have a history of biting my daughter, attacking us. It's not safe for the kids that are going to be showing back up to school. There should be a barrier to stop the dogs from getting into school,” Rucker said.
We brought these concerns to the home and dogs owners. They didn’t want to be on camera, but said they’re sorry and in shock about what happened. They also said the fencing they have is the only one they can afford. They also said they agree one of their dogs should be put down for the attack.
Rucker said more must be done.
"There kid's there all the time, so I don't want those dogs to be back in the picture at all. I would like the home owner to take some responsibility, as far as putting up a fence to prevent those dogs or any future dogs or animals from getting out of that yard and attacking another person,” he said.
We contacted the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) and were told no comments could be made on an open investigation.

LAVAL QUEBEC CANADA - A WOMAN, 42, WAS BEING MAULED BY HER SON'S BULL TERRIER ... POLICE TASERED THE ANIMAL AND IT HAD NO EFFECT AND IT BEGAN A SECOND ATTACK ON HER... SO THEY SHOT AND KILLED IT!


UPDATE:  https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/mobile/laval-police-shoot-kill-dog-that-attacked-woman-1.4065547

Laval police spokeswoman Evelyne Boudreau said Thursday the victim’s life was not in danger but that she suffered numerous lacerations to her body and possibly a broken arm.
Officers arrived at a home and found the victim in a state of panic, moments before the dog began attacking her again.
Boudreau said officers tried to subdue the animal but failed and were forced to kill it.
Police couldn’t name the breed of the dog but said it belonged to someone who knows the victim.
_____________________________________________________________

Laval police fatally shot a dog after it repeatedly attacked a woman Thursday afternoon.
The call came in about the dog attack around 1:45 p.m., during which screams could be heard on the other end of the line, a police spokesperson said. When police arrived on the scene shortly after, the dog approached and began biting the woman a second time. After multiple failed attempts to get the dog away from the woman, police said they tried to gain control of the animal by tasering it.
They said the taser had “no real effect on the dog,” so they shot and killed the animal. The woman suffered bites to her foot, leg, arm and hand, with a possible arm fracture. She has been brought to hospital, and police said they are waiting on word of her condition.
An investigation is underway to determine exactly how the events unfolded.

TULSA OK - POLICE SHOOT AND KILL A PIT BULL THAT WAS IN THE PROCESS OF MAULING ITS SEMICONSCIOUS FEMALE OWNER... THE MALE NUTTER WAS FOUND INSIDE AN APARTMENT ALSO MAULED BY THEIR MEAT GRINDER!


Two people were hospitalized after their dog reportedly attacked them in south Tulsa, prompting an officer to shoot the animal Tuesday evening.
Officers responded to reports of a  PIT BULL  attacking a woman at the Vista Shadow Mountain apartments near 61st Street and Memorial Drive about 5:30 p.m. While en route to the scene, they were advised that the dog still was attacking the woman, who was bleeding profusely, according to police.
Firefighters arrived at the complex first and found the woman lying on a second-floor landing while semiconscious and suffering severe wounds.  “The dog held firefighters at bay, preventing them from accessing the injured woman,” police reported.
The dog later allegedly charged down the stairs at firefighters and officers, one of whom shot the animal with a pistol. The dog died from its injuries, police said.
First responders also found a man who had been injured by the dog in a nearby apartment.  Firefighters carried the victims to a nearby parking lot, where they were treated by paramedics and taken to a hospital.
EMSA confirmed that the woman, who sustained the most serious injuries in the attack, was transported in emergent condition.
Emergent condition indicates a patient’s injuries are considered either serious or critical.

CINCINNATI OH - A WOMAN IS DEAD AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT HER PIT BULL RIPPED HER THROAT OUT AFTER SHE POSSIBLY HAD A SEIZURE

A mother killed this week in West Price Hill was mauled to death by her pit bull, according to the Hamilton County Coroner. (WXIX)
WEST PRICE HILL (FOX19) -
A mother killed this week in West Price Hill was mauled to death by her pit bull, according to the Hamilton County Coroner.
According to the coroner, the woman owned two dogs, a pit bull and a Rottweiler, and was killed by the PIT BULL. The coroner also said the woman had a bullet wound, adding it was a ricochet from police attempts to kill the pit bull. Authorities said she was already dead when the bullet struck her.
Authorities have identified the woman as Della Riley, 42.
Police were dispatched to Dewey Avenue around 1 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a person having a seizure. Neighbors told FOX19 they saw a small boy running around asking for help after the incident.
"The mother had a seizure. I don't know if the dog got scared or whatever but he attacked her and ripped her throat out," said Jon Seymoure, who lives next door.

"The mother had a seizure. I don't know if the dog got scared or whatever but he attacked her and ripped her throat out," said Jon Seymoure, who lives next door.
A dog was guarding the woman's body when medics arrived, so police were called. Officers said they found the dog standing over an unresponsive woman when they arrived -- they said they shot the animal when it charged them.
While police were still at the scene, the boy's father arrived, neighbors said.
The investigation is ongoing. FOX19 will provide updates as they become available.
