The homeowner where the incident happened spoke briefly to FOX5 and said it was his 
granddaughter who was killed and that he was heartbroken and in shock. 

He said the family was at home and they don't know what happened. He said his granddaughter has always been around large dogs, including that one that bit her. 
“I mean it's a sad thing to know that your kid got mauled by an animal,” neighbor Michael Seed said. “It hurts not only that it took a life but the owners of that animal - it's kind of like their child too so I hate to see that something like that happens.”
“It's never really been aggressive,” Seed said about the Rottweiler. “I've never heard it bark. It's been there numerous times.”
The investigation was on-going; check back for details.

DALE, BEAUFORT COUNTY SC - 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED A MAN TALKING ON THE PHONE OUTSIDE HIS MOTHER'S HOUSE

A man was transported to the hospital with “severe puncture wounds” after being attacked by  TWO PIT BULLS  in Dale recently, a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office report says.
The man told police he was talking to his girlfriend on the phone outside of his mother’s house, located on Coakley Drive, when the two dogs attacked for no reason..

“(The man) fell to the ground (and) began hitting the two dogs with everything he could get his hands on ,” the report says.. This included a metal folding chair, hoe and his fists.
One of the dogs bit his inner thigh, while the other began trying to bite at the man’s throat, the report says.

The dogs seemed to become disinterested or tired and the man was able to escape into the house.  He was transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital via ambulance, where deputies interviewed him.  The report notes the man was on heavy pain medication upon deputy arrival.

“There were several severe puncture wounds and abrasions consistent with a dog bite,” the report says.

Deputies contacted Beaufort County Animal Control about the dogs. The mother told deputies she believed the dogs were owned by a relative that lived in the area.



PARKERSBURG WV - AN 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL WAS ATTACKED BY A FRIEND'S PIT BULL



(WTAP) An 11-year-old-girl suffered injuries to her face when she was bitten by a family's friends  PIT BULL,  police said.

Parkersburg Police initially said the girl was treated for her injuries at WVU Medicine Camden Clark and released but on Friday confirmed that she was transferred to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown for additional treatment.
Police said the owner was cited for having a dog at large but still has custody of the dog.
Police said the incident happened on 4th Avenue in south Parkersburg on Wednesday while the girl was playing with the dog after it broke free from a tether.



TAUNTON MA - HOW DO YOU CONTROL 1 PIT BULL WHEN YOU OPEN THE FRONT DOOR AND A SMALL POODLE IS BEING WALKED BY? THEN HOW DO YOU CONTROL 5 MORE PIT BULLS THAT ALSO CHARGED OUT THE DOOR TO KILL THE SMALL PET BEING WALKED BY ON A LEASH? HOW DO YOU CONTROL 6 PITS AND WHY SHOULD ANYONE HAVE 6 PITS?



(WPRI) — A Taunton police officer had to get creative while helping a woman who was being chased and attacked by  SIX PIT BULLS  Wednesday night.
The initial investigation revealed the dogs' owner opened his door, allowing one of the dogs to escape. Police said when he tried to retrieve the dog, the other five pushed by him and went after 51-year-old Rochelle Silva, who was out walking her own dog, Ace.
"All six were on me," she recalled. "If there were six of them, then all six were on me. All six of them were biting at me."
According to police, the officer was conducting routine patrol on Broadway when he saw Silva running in the middle of the road. He then saw the pit bulls, which eventually caught up to her and began attacking her.
"They kept biting at me to get to Ace," Silva said.
Police said the officer could not safely fire a shot at the pit bulls because they were on top of Silva so instead, he got back in his cruiser and activated the sirens and air horns to get the dogs' attention.
The noise distracted the dogs, according to police, giving the officer an opportunity to escort Silva, with the help of a good Samaritan, to his cruiser.
Police said the owner of the dogs, a 36-year-old Taunton man, ran from his home and attempted to get the dogs under control.  At this point, some of the dogs were attempting to jump through the driver's side window of the cruiser, according to police.
The officer was able to roll up his window to avoid being bitten but the good Samaritan, a 53-year-old Raynham man, was bitten by one of the dogs during the incident.
Police said the dogs' owner eventually managed to get them back inside his home.
Caitlin Hubacheck happened to be driving by when the attack occurred.
"It was pretty horrific, seeing the woman, she was screaming in agony holding herself, just hunched over screaming in agony," Hubacheck said. "There’s just dogs everywhere and then the man was completely off by himself and he was getting bit."
Hubacheck said she is a pit bull owner herself and admits this breed of dog needs to be properly trained to prevent situations like this.
"They are big strong dogs and they’re hard to take care of," Hubacheck said.
Silva was transported to Rhode Island Hospital to be treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries. She is still in the hospital recovering.
The good Samaritan was able to drive himself to the hospital, where he received treatment for a dog bite to the leg.
Silva said Ace ended up dying from his injuries at a local animal hospital.
"He was such a good dog. You are not expecting him to go out that way," Silva's daughter Arianna said. "He was tortured before he went."
According to police, all six dogs were seized by Taunton Animal Control and will be quarantined prior to a hearing with the owner. The incident remains under investigation.


___________________________________________________________

A Taunton woman attacked by six dogs is recovering from awful injuries.
Rochelle Silva recalls being on the ground as SIX PIT BULLS  attacked her and she thinks the officer who responded should have done more to stop it.
"All six were on me. If there were six of them then all six were on me," Silva said from her hospital room Friday. "All six of them were biting at me."
Taunton police say she was attacked by six pitbulls that came out of a home on Broadway Wednesday night.  
"Bites all over my body. I got a bite on my face, bites on my arms," Silva said. "I have a big chunk out of my right leg...behind my knee cap that went right to the bone."
She was walking her daughter's dog, Ace, when at least one dog got out. Police say when the owner tried to get that dog, five more escaped.
"They weren't able to get at Ace," Silva said. "They kept biting at me to get at Ace."
She said she tried to run across the street to put Ace over a fence so the dogs couldn't get him. 
An officer on patrol saw the attack and stopped. Police say the officer could not use his weapon because the dogs were so close to the victim so he activated his lights and sirens to scare the dogs. Silva recalls a good Samaritan being the one help get her to safety while the officer was in his cruiser.
"He told the cop to unlock the door so he could get me in the car and he put me in the car," she said. "I don't know how I lost Ace. I don't know how I lost Ace in my arms."
Rochelle's daughter found Ace in a nearby yard.

Ace
"His breaths were very, very faint and slow," Arianna Silva said. "But he was breathing a little bit, so we rushed him to West Bridgwater Animal Hospital"
Ace died from his injuries. Rochelle Silva, who her daughter says has worked her whole life helping others at various non-profits, could be out of work for months.
The Good Samaritan was also bitten, but had a minor injury.

SPRING HILL, PASCO COUNTY FL - A NEIGHBOR'S 5 PIT BULLS "SOMEHOW GOT OUT" AND ATTACKED A TEENAGER ON HIS WAY TO SCHOOL AND THEN AN ELDERLY MAN SUFFERED SERIOUS INJURIES ON HIS LEGS


(Nutter says the meat grinders sleep in the room with their 1-year-old !!!)

 - A pack of dogs attacked two people this morning, injuring an elderly man and a teenager. Now, their owner is apologizing to his Pasco County neighborhood.
Deputies said  a pack of three adult and two puppy PIT BULLS  were roaming the Shady Hills area early Thursday morning. A 15-year-old boy and an elderly man were attacked by the three adult dogs at separate locations.
The first call came just before 7 a.m., reporting a pack of dogs roaming in the area of Crews Lake Wilderness Park. The teenager was bitten on the leg, possibly as he was walking to school or waiting for a bus, deputies said. His injuries are considered to be minor.
However, the elderly victim has serious injuries, deputies said. His exact age was not provided.

A third person, a responding deputy, was nearly bitten, but he ended up shooting one of the adult dogs so he could tend to the victims. According to owner Keith Humphrey, 'Nala' was later euthanized.
The other adult dogs were taken by Animal Control and the puppies are back with Humphrey.  
Humphrey said he recently moved into the Lenway Road home and had secured the fence but apparently missed a spot. Clutching one of the puppies, he said he’s never had an issue with the dogs before and he questioned the choice to kill Nala.
“If you were being attacked, your pants would be ripped, or something would be ripped, wouldn’t it? He had no bite marks, he had no nothing. That gives him no right to shoot my dog,” he told FOX 13. 
Video from the deputy's body-worn camera showed the elderly victim on the ground with the barking dogs around him. He later reveals bloody wounds to his legs and hand.
"Shoot 'em all!" the victim can be heard yelling in the video after the deputy fires on the lead dog. "Where the [expletive] did they come from?"
Investigators have not determined if Humphrey will face any charges.
“I’ll just tell the neighbor I’m sorry. It’s an accident, everything. It could’ve been someone else. I’m just glad the kid’s OK,” he added.

NORTH FORT MYERS FL - A COMMUNITY IS LIVING IN FEAR BECAUSE A NEIGHBOR'S MEAT GRINDER HOPS RIGHT OVER ITS FENCE AND HAS KILLED 5 OR MORE DOGS ...ANIMAL CONTROL SHOWS UP AND THE PIT IS BACK IN HIS FENCE???



A North Fort Myers community is in fear because they said a dog has already killed some of their pets.

While the dog is behind a fence, neighbors question its effectiveness. The four-legged animal, Bam Bam, can hop right over the fence, then attack other dogs.
Sandy Ramirez brought little Claudia with her from Mexico.
“She was everything to me,” Ramirez said. “She was my baby.”
But in January, her dog was ripped to pieces. Ramirez blames Bam Bam.
“The dog got out of his yard and just ran right behind her,” Ramirez said. “It killed her right then and there in that instant.”
Claudia is not alone. Several other neighbors said their dogs lost their lives to Bam Bam.
“The dog has killed five other dogs in my area,” Mckenzie Connolly said. “The other day he jumped the fence and I saw him attack another dog.”
Lee County said they could not do much because when they show up Bam Bam is on his property. Neighbors need to sign a sworn statement explaining what they saw. But there is a lack of communication impeding a potential solution.
Neighbors said it is only a matter of time before Bam Bam moves onto a vulnerable person.
“I couldn’t imagine if that dog got a hold of one of my kids or anyone’s kids!” Shainna Connolly said.

MIDDLETOWN OH - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL "SOMEHOW GOT OUT" AND FATALLY MAULED RICHARD WARREN'S POMERANIAN COCOA AS THEY WERE TAKING A WALK ...KNOCKING WARREN DOWN BREAKING HIS HIP AND BITING HIM!


(FOX19) - A man and his dog were rushed to the hospital after they were attacked by a pit bull outside of their home.
Richard Warren’s Middletown home remains empty. His neighbors tell FOX19 that he is still in the hospital recovering from a fractured hip and several bites on his hand. According to police his Pomeranian Cocoa did not survive the attack.
Warren's neighbor Susan Saucedo was one of the last people to see him on April 17.
“I was looking out the door and I seen him take his dog and walk around the block,” said Saucedo.
She says he never made it back home. According to the police report Warren was walking his dog Cocoa when a gray  PIT BULL  ran from a yard nearby and started biting Cocoa. According to the report Warren was trying to push the pit bull off of his dog, but that’s when the pit bull started attacking Warren, knocking him to the ground.
“I saw the cops drive by and an ambulance and I was like uh oh -- something happened,” said Saucedo.
She walked down the street to the corner of Lafayette and Cherry and that’s when she noticed that her neighbor was in trouble.

“I seen him laying on the ground and there was a white truck and I guess two guys got out and beat the dog off of him,” said Saucedo.
The owner of the pit bull was issued a summons but several who live on the street say more needs to be done, especially since the neighborhood is filled with kids.

“He’s a nice person and I like his dog really well. It’s sad. It’s real sad people can’t keep their animals under control,” said Saucedo.
Now many in the area are keeping a tighter control on their children.
“I got my grandkids and they ride their bikes and stuff and it was just a shock -- you never know,” said Saucedo.
Police say the owner of the pit bull was not at home during the attack. According to the police report she told police she was not aware of how the dog could have gotten out. The Butler County Dog Warden has labeled the dog as vicious.

PORT ARANSAS TX - AN "AMERICAN STAFF MIX" WITH A HISTORY OF ATTACKING WAS ADOPTED OUT BY CORPUS CHRISTI ANIMAL SERVICES AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS ON A LEASH, IT ATTACKED A WOMAN WHO HAD BEEN WALKING AT THE BEACH



A routine walk on the beach turned awry for Cindy Clark and her friend as the two encountered a rescue animal.
“We passed a man and his dog and waved no problem then turned around came back by the same man and same dog,” said Clark. That’s when the dog ran up behind the truck jumped up bit me behind the leg and then lunged up here by his head and chomped right here.”
Clark said the dog was on a leash, but it still managed to get to her. 
The deep bite landed her in the emergency room where she had to get several staples to close the wounds.
Paperwork provided by the Corpus Christi Animal Care Services shows that the dog has history of aggressive behavior, as well as biting.
“To me that’s a huge red flag,” said Clark.
Despite the history of aggression, the dog was adopted out once again.
“Clearly the city is putting the public at risk by either not reading their files or not following through,” said Clark. “There needs to be some changes I think and people need to pay attention.”
According to the paperwork from animal care services the dog involved in the attack has been euthanized.
“I just would hate for anyone else to go through this,” said Clark.
We reached out to Animal Care Services to find out why a dog with a history of aggressive behavior was allowed to be adopted. Officials were not available today but said they would discuss the shelters protocol for adopting dogs with similar behavior tomorrow.

ASHLAND KY - PIT OWNERS LET THEIR PITS RUN LOOSE AND KILL A CAT ON A NEIGHBOR'S PORCH ...POLICE WERE CALLED AND IT LEAD TO A ....HHHUGE....METH BUST!!!



(WSAZ)   Dogs and cats are known as natural enemies, but this may be the first time a fight between the species has led to a major drug bust.


Sherry Fry says late Easter Sunday night, her next-door neighbor's  TWO PIT BULLS  attacked a cat on her front porch.
"They just don't leash them," Fry said. "They just run loose."
Fry reported the dog attack to police, and around midnight an officer showed up at the neighbor's house on Gallaher Drive in Ashland.
Police say they checked the name of the man who lives in the house and learned there was already an outstanding traffic warrant for his arrest.
Ashland Police Chief Todd Kelley says when the officer told the man he was under arrest, the man assaulted him.
Kelley says more officers went to the house and found $243,000 worth of meth in the home, along with a small amount of marijuana, $4,300 in cash and drug paraphernalia.
"This is an individual who is not only making money for themselves, but making someone else rich," Kelley said during a press conference Monday afternoon.
Franklin Certain and Rikki Wurts were arrested and are facing several charges, including 1st degree trafficking in controlled substance.
"To get this significant of an amount off the street and get it in our hands and out of the individuals that are using this to poison our community, this is fantastic," Kelley said.
Fry says her neighbors had only lived there a few months, and she didn't have any suspicions about illegal activity. She says she was shocked when her complaint about their dogs led to what Ashland police call one of the biggest meth busts they've ever made.
She also says she's worrying about retaliation.
"It's scary," she said.
Fry says the cat that was attacked had to be put down Monday morning. She says it was a neighbor's cat, but the cat spent a lot of time at her house.
The suspects were taken to the Boyd County Detention Center.



LYNN MA - A PIT BULL "SOMEHOW GOT OUT" AND FOUND SOMETHING TO TRY AND KILL ...A GERMAN SHEPHERD BEING WALKED BY HER FAMILY ON A LEASH ...HERO O.P. MILLER HAD THE GUTS TO ACT AND SAVE LUCY'S LIFE!!!



(WHDH) - A Lynn writer is being hailed as a hero for helping break up a fight between a Nahant police officer’s family dog and a  PIT BULL.
O.P. Miller told 7News he was on his way to the gym around noon Friday when he saw a little girl waving on the sidewalk, begging for help as a pit bull attacked her pet German shepherd on Conomo Avenue.
“When you see a little girl screaming ‘Help us, help us, help us,’ with tears pouring down her face, you stop,” Miller said.
The girl, Erin Furlong, and her brother, Kyle, were riding their bicycles while their mother walked behind with their beloved dog Lucy when they say a pit bull living along the road attacked the pup.
The family says Lucy struggled to break free as her owner frantically pulled on the leash.
Miller recalled the tense moment he put himself in harm’s way to save the dog.
“I grabbed his collar, started choking him, scratching him, punching him,” Miller said. “He just wouldn’t let go, so I grabbed the collar and twisted it and finally he took a gasp of air and that is when he let go.”
Lucy’s owner, Nahant Police Officer Timothy Furlong, says he will recommend Miller for a citation in recognition of his act of kindness.
“I can’ t thank him enough,” Furlong said.
Miller suffered injuries to his hand and received seven rabies shots following the incident.
Both dogs were uninjured.
Lynn police have been in contact with the pit bull’s owners, they have not yet pressed charges.

SANDY UT - A "RESPONSIBLE PIT OWNER" LET HIS MEAT GRINDER RUN UNLEASHED AT THE DIMPLE DELL RECREATION AREA SO IT FOUND SOMETHING TO TRY AND KILL... TWO HORSES!!!



Richard Delgado was out riding with his 11-year-old Quarter Horse, Buckshot, at the Dimple Dell Recreation Area gully on Thursday when he saw a horse galloping straight for him.
The horse was without its rider and, seconds later, Delgado noticed a  PIT BULL  was hot on its heels.
Delgado’s friend Sarah Simmons grabbed the run-away horse.
“Even at that point I didn’t think the dog was being vicious,” said Simmons.
The dog attacked the loose horse, then turned to Simmons’ horse. Delgado said he tried to get in-between Simmons and the dog—that’s when the pit bull attacked Buckshot.
“On his front, right leg it was literally pouring blood like a fountain,” said Delgado. “His whole right leg is swollen in comparison to his left.”
The scars are still visible on Buckshot’s legs and there’s a limp in his stride.
Delgado said the pit bull’s owner apologized. The dog had not been on a leash in a leash-only zone, something Sandy Police said is a huge issue in the area.
“It is very serious giving an injury to an animal and even to a human,” said Sgt. Jason Nielsen. “It could be life-threatening sometimes.”
The pit bull owner faces court and a few charges, including animals attacking livestock. A dog can be impounded if it attacks a human. But, in this case, the victim was a horse, so it wasn't impounded, according to Sgt. Nielsen.
But for Delgado and Buckshot, it was a bad day they hope never happens again.
“If he had just followed the rules and been on a leash, there would’ve been no accident,” said Delgado.
