A MASTIFF  broke out of its kennel Sunday at an Archer Heights pet store, biting a woman and mauling another dog. The woman was taken to an area hospital with bites on her right middle finger and upper left arm.
The incident happened at around 10:40 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at a PetSmart in the 4100 block of South Pulaski Road, according to the Chicago Tribune. That's when a mastiff escaped in the store's grooming area, the report added.

Chicago police believe the dog attack was accidental, but the store and authorities are still investigating the incident.



LONDON ENGLAND - LUISA CIESLAK, 61, LEFT HER BACK DOOR OPEN... A PIT BULL RAN INTO HER BEDROOM AND BEGAN A FATAL TERRIFYING ATTACK ON HER POODLE INJURING HER AS SHE TRIED TO SAVE HER BELOVED CHA CHA

Luisa Cieslak, 61, desperately tried to defend family dog Cha Cha from the other animal leaving her hands with deep bite wounds. She says she may need to go into a care home, so bad is the damage to her hands.

The shocking attack happened after Luisa left the back door of her London home open last weekend.  Suddenly the crazed dog ran in to her room before launching a terrifying 45 minute attack on her and poodle Cha Cha.
Speaking from her hospital bed, she said: "It was the most terrifying moment of my life."
"I thought the dog was going to kill me."
Her 98-year-old mum was also in the house and has been hospitalised from the shock.
Luisa, who suffers with angina, illiostomy and diabetes, picked Cha Cha up - but the dog snatched her from her arms.
As she desperately tried to save her eight-year-old poodle she was attacked - leaving her with multiple wounds and ligament damage.
She locked the dog in her bedroom before calling the police - and then had to hear her pet being killed.
Two vans, three police cars and a dog unit arrived at her Wood Green home to remove the PIT BULL.
Police have confirmed the dog was seized under Section One of the Dangerous Dog Act, and the family are calling for the owners to be arrested.
Luisa's traumatised daughter Belinda, 25, said: "This has ruined our family.  My mum can't do anything now her hands are so badly damaged. These people should be banned from owning pets ever again. My beautiful baby is gone. We want justice for this horrific ordeal."
Belinda, who buried Cha Cha in the back garden, said: "It was like a horror film.
"I couldn't stop screaming. You should be safe in your own home. It could have been a child - or even a baby."
Luisa added: "They have traumatised us for life.
"I tried to save my dog - and now she's gone and my hands will never be the same again. We can never be around dogs again. These dangerous dogs can't be left to stray."
Met Police said: "Police were called at approximately 12.40pm on Saturday, September 15 to a report that a dog had attacked and killed another dog.
"The dog which carried out the attack was subsequently seized under Section One of the Dangerous Dogs Act.
"The incident is being assessed by the Status Dog Unit.
"We are in contact with the owners of the deceased dog. No arrests; enquiries continue."

(WTOK) - A man was seriously injured after he was attacked by dogs in southeastern Lauderdale County.
Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun with the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department said the attack happened Wednesday afternoon on Old Highway 19 SE near Southeast Middle School and the traffic light.
A driver noticed a bike rider who was laying in the road. The man appeared to have several injuries caused by the dogs.
The victim was taken to a local hospital, then transported to a hospital in Jackson.

CHICAGO IL - AN ELDERLY MAN WAS BEING MAULED BY 2 PIT BULLS IN CHICAGO'S WEST ENGLEWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD - HERO JOE DRISH, COOK COUNTY EMPLOYEE, TRIED TO RUN HIS TRUCK OVER THEM...THEN HE SHOT THEM WITH HIS NAIL GUN AND THAT DIDN'T WORK EITHER!!!



A man walking in an alley was attacked by TWO PIT BULLS  Wednesday morning in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

The elderly victim was taken to Saint Bernard Hospital. Witnesses said he suffered injuries to his hands and shoulder.

The incident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. in the 5900 block of South Marshfield Avenue.

Workers boarding up a building across the street heard the commotion and helped the man.

"I jumped in my truck and tried pushing the dogs against the fence," said Joe Drish, a supervisor with Cook County Board Up."I realized the dogs weren't going to push off the body, so I grabbed my nail gun and proceeded to shoot the dogs with my nail gun."
Even that didn't work.  


As officers tried to corral the dogs, first responders rushed the victim to the hospital. 

Chicago police and animal control took away the pair of dogs who were in the care of Renard Thurmand, 63.

"The dog slid under the fence and attacked him," Thurmand said. "The second dog slid under the fence and helped. By the time I got there the dog was too involved and didn't want to stop."

Some of the scene was captured on cellphone video from across the street by neighbor Shantay Crenshaw.

"It was real bad," she said of the victim's injuries. "From his arms from his neck everything was bleeding."

The dogs are expected to be euthanized.

Thurmand, who expressed sympathy for the victim, maintains he was mistreated by authorities and wants his dogs back.

"I told them that if they are going to euthanize them they was going to have to shoot me too," he said.

TODD MISSION, GRIMES COUNTY TX - A WOMAN IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER BEING MAULED BY AT LEAST ONE DOG FROM A GROUP OF FOUR DOGS - LIFE-FLIGHTED TO A HOSPITAL IN BRYAN

A woman has been hospitalized in critical condition after authorities said she was attacked by dogs on a rural Todd Mission property.
According to law enforcement officials with the Department of Public Safety and the Grimes County Sheriff's Office, a person called 911 around 3 p.m. Tuesday to report screams coming from a neighbor's residence on Millcreek Road just outside Todd Mission city limits. Authorities said on the porch of the home, a woman was under attack by at least ONE DOG FROM A GROUP OF FOUR. 
A state trooper arrived, and as he stepped onto the porch, a medium- to large-sized dog emerged from behind a refrigerator. The dog lunged aggressively at the trooper, said DPS spokesman Sgt. Jimmy Morgan. The trooper shot the dog with his service weapon, killing the animal. The three remaining dogs reportedly did not attempt to attack the trooper.
First responders struggled to move the woman off the property because of muddy roads in the wooded area. All-terrain vehicles were employed to transport the victim to a space where a helicopter could land. The woman was then life-flighted to CHI St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan. She suffered severe blood loss and is in critical condition, Morgan said.

WESTCHESTER, A SUBURB OF GREATER CHICAGO AREA - CARL PANEK, 81, WAS WALKING HIS BELOVED 9-YEAR-OLD DACHSHUND MIX, HARRY, WHEN 2 PIT BULLS "SOMEHOW GOT OUT" AND WENT LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO KILL ...THEY KILLED HARRY!!!

Carl Panek, 81, of Westchester was walking his 9-year-old dachshund mix, Harry, about 9:30 p.m. Oct. 19 at Bristol Avenue and Chaucer Street in Westchester when two 2-year-old pit bulls, one male and one female, attacked the animal, leaving it with fatal injuries and Panek with wounds to his arms and hands.

Westchester police are continuing their investigation into an attack by TWO PIT BULLS  that killed a Westchester man’s dog.
Carl Panek, 81, was walking his 9-year-old dachshund mix, Harry, about 9:30 p.m. Oct. 19 at Bristol Avenue and Chaucer Street in Westchester when two 2-year-old pit bulls, one male and one female, attacked the animal, leaving it with fatal injuries and Panek with wounds to his arms and hands.
Panek said he tried to fight off the pit bulls but was not able to, and neighbors called police when they heard his screams for help. By the time police arrived, the pit bulls’ owner had arrived and removed the dogs from Panek and Harry, who died at a veterinarian’s office a short time later.
Westchester Police Chief Steven Stelter said the animals had gotten out of their fenced yard when the owners were coming into the yard through the gate. They had been running through the neighborhood, even chasing two women who were outside into a car, before they encountered Panek and Harry, Stelter said.
Stelter met with the pit bulls’ owners and said the dogs are currently in quarantine at their home until the investigation is completed, when he will decide if the animals should be deemed as “dangerous” or “vicious.” The owners said the dogs have never attacked a human or another animal before now, he said.
“Once the investigation is complete, and if they’re deemed vicious, we’ll go to the Cook County State’s Attorney who will determine if the dogs should be put down. Only a judge can make that decision," Stelter said. "But we will carry out this investigation to the fullest extent that we can.”
Panek said the owners, whom he does not know, have not contacted him. He said he’d like to see the animals put down so that this doesn’t happen again.
“Pit bulls are bred to kill other animals unless they’re trained [not to], and these were wild dogs,” he said. “I was lucky they didn’t get my neck. [The owners] have never apologized to me. I cry myself to sleep, and I’ve lost eight pounds in one week. Harry was a part of the family.”

DES MOINES IA - A MAN WAS WALKING HIS SMALL DOG WHEN THEY WERE ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL ...HE MADE IT HOME WITH THE MEAT GRINDER FOLLOWING SO HE SHOT IT DEAD BUT HIS DOG DIED FROM THE ATTACK!



Des Moines police say a man who was attacked by a  PIT BULL  shot the animal to death.  According to police records, the incident happened about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said Mike Hagar was walking his dog in the 1900 block of East 27th Street when the pit bull attacked him and his dog. 

"The owner was able to get to the point where he could get inside his fenced yard, and the pit bull was still trying to come after that dog,"  Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said.  "He retrieved a handgun from his house and he shot the dog that attacked him."  The pit bull died at the scene and Hagar's dog later died of its injuries.

Parizek said police are investigating the use of a gun, but the shooting seems justified.  "I think all of us would react the same way trying to put yourself between your pet and danger, and to have this happen is pretty traumatic,"  he said. 

"It's a horrible incident," said Mick McAuliffe, animal service director at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa.  "I wouldn't wish it upon anyone."

McAuliffe said the attack has nothing to do with the breed and everything to do with how it is trained."  We take each dog as an individual, deal with the individual incident and the facts of what actually happened," he said.

McAuliffe said keeping pets secured on a leash or in a fenced in yard can prevent dog attacks."  The responsibility really lies with being a responsible pet owner," he said.  Authorities and Animal Rescue League are investigating why the pit bull was not properly secured and if it was properly insured.

SANFORD, LEE COUNTY NC - A PIT BULL "SOMEHOW" GOT OFF ITS CHAIN AND MAULED A 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL GETTING OFF THE SCHOOL BUS CAUSING 49 PUNCTURE WOUNDS!!!



(WTVD) --
A 12 year-old is recovering after her mother says she was bitten nearly 50 times by her neighbor's dog.

The attack happened Monday afternoon as the 7th grader was getting off the bus.

Her mother Lateta Verbal says the dog is normally chained up in the backyard, but Monday it was roaming free and attacked her daughter.

Verbal says a neighbor heard the girl's cries for help and ran outside. But Verbal says no one bothered to call 911.

Instead, when she got home, a crowd of people were standing around her bloodied daughter in the yard.

The 12-year-old was taken to the hospital and was later released. She's at home resting but her mother wants the dog owners arrested.

Lee County Animal Control seized the dog. It will be under quarantine for ten days pending the outcome of the investigation. Meanwhile criminal charges could be filed by the Sheriff's Office.

This story is developing. Check back with ABC11 for the latest.

EDGECOMBE COUNTY NC - A MOTHER WORKED TO PRY THE "FAMILY PIT BULL" OFF HER 1-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WHEN THE 911 DISPATCHER TELLS HER TO GET A KNIFE, PULL ITS EAR BACK AND CUT ITS THROAT AND "IT WOULD RELEASE ITS JAW MUSCLES" ...BUT THEN A DETECTIVE ARRIVED AND SHOT IT!


TRINITI HAS DIED!!!

EDGECOMBE COUNTY, NC (WITN) - The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office has released the 911 call from a mom as the family's PIT BULL MIX  was mauling her 1-year-old child.


The call reveals a harrowing 10 minutes as the mother, Miranda Harrell, attempts to get the dog to stop attacking her daughter Triniti.
Miranda says, "Hurry, she's dying! Please hurry."
Those were the frantic words were made to 9-1-1 Monday morning from Miranda during the attack at their home on Highway 43 South of Rocky Mount.
Miranda says, "Help me! Help me!"
Dispatcher: "Can you get ahold of him to try and get the dog off of her?"
Miranda: "I can't get him off."
Throughout the 9-1-1 tapes you can hear the operator advise Harrell on what to do, recommending at first that she attempt to hit the dog using any available nearby items.
Miranda: "She's dying please help."
Dispatcher: "Can you get ahold of anything a pot, pan, shovel, anything?"
Miranda: "Yes."
Dispatcher: "Hit him with it. Hit him right in the center of his head."
But when hitting the dog wouldn't work, and unable to pry open the dogs jaws, the 9-1-1 operator finally tells Harrell to grab a knife from the kitchen.
Miranda: "I've got one."
Dispatcher: "Okay, I need you to go back out there. Does he have a collar on?"
Miranda: "No."
Dispatcher: "Okay, I need you to grab him by one ear, and cut along the bottom of his neck. He's going to let go. Cut him across the bottom of his neck, it will release his jaw muscles, he won't have a choice but to let go."
Ultimately it would be two shots from a detective who had arrived on scene that would kill the dog, releasing Triniti from his grip and saving the young girls life.

According to the sheriff's office Triniti was clinging to life when she was flown to Vidant Medical Center and then transferred to Chapel Hill. She is reported to be in stable condition.
The sheriff's office is investigating the incident but say that no charges are expected to be filed in this case.
PREVIOUS STORY:
A one-year-old toddler has been transferred to UNC Children's Hospital in Chapel Hill after deputies say she was attacked by the family dog.
Edgecombe County deputies say it happened Monday at a home on Highway 43, south of Rocky Mount.
Sheriff Clee Atkinson says Miranda Harrell and her daughter, Triniti, were playing on the back porch when the six-year-old pit bull mix attacked.
Harrell tried to stab the dog to stop the attack and the sheriff said when the first deputies arrived it looked like the dog was shaking a baby doll.
A detective also responded on his own, according to the sheriff. Acting quickly, the detective shot twice and killed the dog.
“We’ve discussed amongst ourselves a lot of law enforcement officers may have not been able to pull that trigger," said the sheriff. "But guess what, he is definitely a hero and he saved that baby’s life and I’m proud to have him on our team,”
Triniti, according to deputies, was clinging to life, She was first flown to Vidant Medical Center and then onto Chapel Hill where she is now in stable condition.
Sheriff Atkinson says the dog was a six-year-old pit bull mix.
