SPOKANE WA - BONNIE RAE GOT HER BELOVED DOWNY WHEN HER HUSBAND DIED A FEW YEARS BACK ...LAST SUNDAY SHE WATCHED AS A PIT BULL IN SECONDS CHARGED FROM ACROSS THE STREET AND RIPPED HIM TO PIECES!!!

A Spokane woman had no idea when she took her dog for a walk last Sunday, that it would be their last.
“The whole thing from beginning to end was about six seconds - six or seven seconds,” said Bonnie Rae.  
That’s how long it took for her neighbor’s  PIT BULL  to attack and kill her small dog. She says the dog charged at them from across the street, going straight for Downy.  
Rae says she got Downy several years ago when her husband died. He’s been her companion ever since.  
“He was in pieces and I guess I keep getting flashbacks,” said Rae. 
She says she called 911, hysterical. About 30 minutes later, a SCRAPS animal control officer arrived. 
As the animal control officer went next door, Ray says the dog ran out and attacked again, this time grabbing her daughter’s arm. 
“The animal control officer is yelling at us to get into the house and call 911,” said Rae. 
So she called again, hoping this time Spokane Police would get involved. Instead, police told Rae it wasn’t their policy to handle animal issues. 
SCRAPS took the pitbull away. 
Workers said  Rae's neighbor claimed to be watching the dog for someone else, but so far no one has come forward to claim it. 
SCRAPS says the owner of the pit bull has eight days to claim their dog. If they don’t, it will be euthanized.

I was gratified to see this posted nationally. I'm thinking that the more publicity generated about these attacks the better chance we have of solving this nightmare. Until it happened to us I didn't have a clue. I have been contacted by a number of people here in the Spokane, WA, area with similar stories. Once I'm emotionally able to deal with it I intend to get involved with efforts to ban pit bulls here. It's been a month and I am still troubled by flashbacks. Several people have told me that they'll never go completely away. Our lives have been changed forever.

Something else has come up that people should be made aware of. It seems that in many cases Animal Control Officers purposely misidentify the breed in vicious dog attacks so that there's no official record that the attacking dog is a pit bull. It doesn't go into the national database as a pit bull attack, in other words. That is what happened to us. It took me two months to get the incident report, which I needed in my lawsuit against the owners. It listed the dog's breed as "large mixed breed." Period. Our animal control agency--SCRAPS, here in Spokane, Wa, is also the region's largest rescue operation and makes a big deal over their ability to find homes for hard-to-place dogs. They host events they call "Pities Parties" extolling the virtues of pit bulls and adopting them out like they were poodles or cockers. It is obvious to me that they misidentify the breed to keep the true statistics of pit bull attacks off people's radar. Is this being done elsewhere?
