CHICAGO IL - A VALID FIREARM OWNER SHOT AND KILLED A FAMILY PIT BULL AFTER IT MAULED HER 9-YEAR-OLD NEPHEW



(WLS) -- A 9-year-old boy was critically injured after being attacked by a dog and a second child was also injured Wednesday night, Chicago police said. 

Police said the boy was at his aunt's house in the 9800-block of South Indiana Avenue at about 8:11 p.m. The boy was attacked by the family dog and then his aunt fired a handgun and killed the dog. 

The 9-year-old boy injured by the dog was transported to Comer Children's Hospital in critical condition. The second boy, who appeared to suffer from a graze wound, was also transported to Comer Children's Hospital, where doctors said they could not determine if the injury came from the gunshot or a dog bite. The child was later released after being treated. 

Investigators said that woman has a valid firearms owners identification card. Police are investigating the incident.

Did anyone else notice that WGN and ABC are careful not to mention pit bull? Only the word DOG is used to define this attack. And nutters say there is a media bias? I believe the media bias runs in the opposite direction. Major news sources intentionally leaving out the breed do everyone a disservice, and show that they are trying to conceal pit bull attacks.

I think it's legal to shoot a dog that's trying to kill a child? I guess that dog permanently learned its lesson. It won't be biting a child again.
