ELK GROVE, SACRAMENTO COUNTY CA - A WOMAN WAS RIDING HER BIKE WITH HER GOLDENDOODLE IN TOW WHEN A PIT BULL CAME OUT OF NOWHERE AND CHOMPED DOWN ON HER SWEET MAGGIE'S LEG .. CAUGHT ON HER FRIEND'S RING CAMERA!

(CBS13) – A Ring camera at an Elk Grove home on Soaring Oaks Drive captured the horrifying moments a PIT BULL  attacked a woman’s goldendoodle.


“As we were rounding the corner on to her driveway, the dog attacked my dog,” Molly, the goldendoodle’s owner, said.
Molly, who didn’t want to go on camera nor have her last name released, was on a bike ride to her friend’s house with her 4-year-old dog Maggie in tow on Sunday afternoon. She says a pit bull suddenly came out of nowhere and attacked Maggie.
“My friend opened her door and we were trying to get my dog in,” Molly, said. “And then we realized that the pit bull was coming in too.”
The footage of the attack shows the pit bull with Maggie’s bloody leg clenched in its jaws; shaking her back and forth in the doorway.
“She got a gym weight and she clonked the pit bull on the head a few times and it let go,” Molly said.
Molly rushed Maggie to the vet who then underwent surgery.
“They weren’t sure if she would lose her leg or not,” Molly said. “She still has her leg and she’s in the house and she’s healing. But they’re still concerned about her leg.”
As Molly waited for news on Maggie’s condition, she posted to social media hoping to find out who owned the other dog.
All the while, Elk Grove Animal Service was doing its own search for the pit bull’s owner. The manager told CBS13 they were able to track the owner down.
“We are moving forward with deeming the dog dangerous which is a legal process,” Sarah Humlie, Elk Grove Animal Services manager said. “And it means that the owner’s going to be responsible for keeping the dog much better contained.”
Maggie is now on the mend but Molly is still shaken up about the attack.
“And you never know what’s going to happen. It’s really scary. There’s a lot of dogs around here,” Molly said.
Elk Grove Animal Services said it’s unsure if any other fines will be issued towards the other dog’s owner at this time.

CRAWFORD COUNTY GA - LEE ALVIN BECHAM, 76, WAS FOUND DEAD SUNDAY IN HIS YARD ...HIS BODY COVERED WITH BITE MARKS ...A NEIGHBOR REPORTS THAT A GROUP OF PIT BULLS HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM IN THE AREA!



Crawford County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a man who may have been mauled to death by pit bulls outside his home.
Sunday afternoon, Crawford County deputies found 76-year-old Lee Bechum dead outside his home. 


"He did have bite marks on his body. We are going to send his body to the GBI crime lab for an autopsy," said Sheriff Lewis Walker.

Coroner Sheldon Mattox says Bechum's arms and legs were mauled with dog bites, likely from one or more of the pit bulls in the neighborhood. 

County officials say THREE OR FOUR PIT BULLS LIVE NEXT DOOR  to where Bechum's house is. The neighbors say the dogs have been causing trouble since the owners moved in less than a year ago.
"I met the dog right here at that cedar tree. My wife was sitting there. I went in and got my shotgun. I went up here just a-waving my shotgun," said Monty Beverly, pointing out where he saw one of the pit bulls less than a month ago.

Beverly was Bechum's neighbor and friend. 

Beverly says when he turned away, the dog, which he guessed weighed around 120 pounds, raced towards him four different times.
To defend himself and his wife, Beverly says he shot at the dog.
"If I knew them dogs were going to jump on my buddy down there, he'd be a dead dog. That's all I got to say," Beverly said. 

Sheriff Lewis Walker says they won't take the neighbor's dogs until the cause of death is determined.
"If it's anything indicating that it was the dogs, then we'll be moving further with the investigation," Walker said. 
Mattox says the autopsy has been rescheduled for Tuesday morning. He hopes to know the cause of death by then.

KNOTT COUNTY KY - COREY GODSEY, 13, WAS KILLED ON TUESDAY FEB 18 IN WHAT IS BELIEVED TO BE A CANINE ATTACK... MEDICAL EXAMINERS SAID THE CAUSE OF DEATH IS CONSISTENT WITH AN ANIMAL ATTACK BUT HAVE NOT DETERMINED THE EXACT TYPE OF ANIMAL

canine attack knott county

Tuesday, Feb 18,  9:00 p.m.


Troopers with Kentucky State Police confirm a juvenile died in a suspected animal attack in Knott County.
They were called to the scene on KY-1102, also known as Montgomery Creek Road around 6:30 Tuesday evening.
The minor's body was found several hundred feet up a hillside in a wooded area. Rain and dark conditions made it difficult for first responders to find them.
"One person I thought said several hundred feet 300-400 feet up the hill. You know it was very steep, you know so it was a pretty good distance," said Jody Sims with Kentucky State Police Post 13 in Perry County.
Officials say that while it is being ruled an animal attack they still do not know what killed the boy.
"However at this point, there is no way they can determine what the animal was, there are still questions as to what animal it may have been," said Sims.
Officials are not releasing the boy's name while they wait to rule out a criminal act. Right now, however, this is not suspected to be anything other than a terrible accident.
Right now, troopers are not able to confirm what type of animal may have attacked the child.
"It's a really difficult thing to go through. You know, part of being a professional in law enforcement or as a first responder you gotta take care of business first, and you kinda got to deal with that yourself too, to some degree. But obviously the biggest focus has to be on this family at this time," added Trooper Sims.

Update: Wednesday, Feb 19, 12:45 p.m.

Kentucky State Police released more information about what they believe was an animal attack in Knott County.
Troopers said the victim in the deadly attack was a 13-year-old boy. They have not released his name yet but said he was staying at a home in the Emmalena community.
Knott County Schools Superintendent Kim King said the boy was homeschooled.
Police said the original call described a "canine-type" animal. The state medical examiner's office said the cause of death was consistent with an animal attack, but have not determined the exact type of animal.
Troopers say people in the area should remain "hypervigilant", especially at night, but there is no immediate threat to the community.
"Something happened in this community in Emmalena in Knott County. We just urge people to be very cognizant of their surroundings. Be careful about the things you have around your home," said Trooper Jody Sims. "Be careful of any type of potential food source for a wild animal. Secure those in garbage cans, containers, whatever you have to do or not even put them out."

BARRIE, ONTARIO CANADA - REALTOR CARRIE STILES SAYS IT LOOKED LIKE A MURDER SCENE AFTER SHE WAS ATTACKED BY A VICIOUS DOG AFTER SHOWING A HOUSE



 Realtor Carrie Stiles is recovering after she says she was viciously attacked by a dog after a house showing in Barrie.“The whole thing looked like a bloodbath, she says of the incident.” 

Stiles met two clients at a duplex on Innisfil Street to show them an investment property.  She says the tenant warned them about “two extremely dangerous dogs” that were in the backyard and told her that “if we were to let the dog in, he would maim and mangle us.”

After the showing, Stiles and her clients left the house and were talking in the driveway.  That’s when she says the dog escaped the house and attacked.“The metal screen door flew open. We heard a loud bang, and the dog had pushed his way through the door,” Stiles said, adding that the dog bolted straight for them.

According to Stiles, the animal bit her client’s coat and boots and then turned its aggression her way.

“The dog grabbed the corner of my jacket, latched onto that and was pulling me down to the ground to get to me,” she said.

“All I kept thinking was ‘Don’t lose your balance or this dog’s going to get your throat or your face, and that’ll be the end of me.”

Stiles says that in her desperation to get away, she tried to climb onto her client’s car. “The dog locked onto my hand. He was thrashing my hand back and forth like an alligator would,” she said.

The tenant eventually got the dog back indoors, and paramedics were called.The alleged attack left a horrifying scene.  “My purse was filled with blood; my coat was covered in blood; my nylons were torn. Because of the snow, it looked like a murder scene,” she said.

Stiles says she believes she will need plastic surgery on her injured hand  “I’m in a lot of pain. I can’t drive, I can’t write, it’s hard to get dressed, to cut food,” she said, adding that continuing her job will be difficult after her experience. “It’s terrifying to think when I door knock, is a dog going to come up to the door and how am I going to feel?” she said.

Stiles says she feels the dog should be euthanized, and the tenants arrested for negligence, saying she’s thankful her clients didn’t have children with them. But Barrie police say this is a bylaw issue. The city says it is investigating.

“Pending results of the investigation, the city may proceed with charges under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act,” a spokesperson for the city stated. “This incident occurred on the owner’s property. A dog is not required to be on a muzzle if in the owners’ home or in a fenced yard on the property.”

The city says the owner claims the dog is a CANE CORSO breed and not a PIT BULL, as Stiles claims it was. She is waiting for information from the city’s investigation and says she plans to take legal action.

JACKSONVILLE FL - A ROAMING MEAT GRINDER ATTACKED REBECCA TEMBY'S LITTLE PET OUTSIDE HER APARTMENT DOOR ...A HERO CAME TO HELP PULL THE PIT OFF HER DOG AND A FEW DAYS LATER THE LAND SHARK CAME BACK AND ATTACKED HIS DOG ...SURELY JACKSONVILLE HAS AN ANIMAL CONTROL???



A routine trip to let her dog, Mikey, outside turned into a near-deadly disaster for Jacksonville woman Rebecca Temby. 
"It started tearing into Mikey and tearing his flesh," Temby said, describing last week's dog attack. 
She says she was a few feet from her apartment door when a tan-colored PIT BULL  came running toward her in the parking lot of Avesta Mandarin Apartments. 

"[My dog] was in shock," she told First Coast News. "I didn't know if he was breathing or not. He was just completely silent."
Temby was bitten on the shoulder, but Mikey's wounds were extensive, including bite marks around his neck and legs.
  
"His own body is having a hard time combating the infection," she said. 

Temby, who is a veteran, was training Mikey to be a service dog. She began the training a few months ago. She says a man who helped pull the dog off Mikey was also attacked by the same pit bull a few days later.

"He came up to me with tears in his eyes and he said 'That same dog attacked my dog and now my dog is at the vet hospital,'" Temby said.
Temby didn't look to see if the dog had a collar, but believes it lives or roams nearby. She's now changing her habits and urges others to keep an eye out late at night. 
"I think it would be important to let people know that this dog is out loose so they can protect themselves, their children and their own dogs," Temby said. 
GoFundMe page was set up to help with Mikey's vet bills.



ST. JOHNS COUNTY FL - TAMMY DEGOLYER IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER BEING ATTACKED BY 2 ROTTWEILERS IN HER FRONT YARD...DEPUTIES HAD TO OPEN FIRE ON THE MONSTERS IN ORDER FOR FIRST RESPONDERS TO GET TO HER



A woman is in life-threatening condition after a dog attack in St. John's County on Friday. Deputies said the attack was so vicious they could not reach the woman to help her and had to open fire on the dogs.
First Coast News has learned the woman is Tammy Degolyer, who was featured Thursday in an On Your Side report.

According to the St. John's County Sheriff's Office, Degolyer was in her front yard on Luther Beck Road in Hastings around 1 p.m. when two dogs ran up, knocking her to the ground, and began attacking her.

Deputies said they were initially unable to reach her because of the dogs and were forced to open fire on the animals. One was killed and the other injured.

Deputies wanted to transport the woman to the hospital by helicopter, but weather conditions did not allow, so she was driven instead.
The St. John's County Sheriff's Office said the dogs both appeared to be ROTTWEILERS.

First Coast News had previously spoken to Degolyer and her husband, Claude Degolyer, because they had waited years for their roof to be repaired after it was damaged by Hurricane Matthew.

A local non-profit stepped in to help the military couple. The Simon's House was expecting to finish the renovation project on Monday.

PISHCHANKA, KHARKIV REGION UKRAINE - A 3-YEAR-OLD ROTTWEILER THAT HAD BEEN WITH A FAMILY ONLY 3 WEEKS BRUTALLY KILLED THEIR 4-YEAR-OLD BOY AS HE PREPARED TO GO FOR A WALK WITH HIS GRANDMOTHER

 The boy died at his family home in Pishchanka in northeastern Ukraine
Reports say the boy named Denis and his grandmother Olga were about to take a walk when the dog attacked.
Denis got dressed up, walked out of the house and waited for his grandma in the courtyard.
But when the rottweiler saw him it "went mad" and jumped over the fence of its enclosure, police said.
 The pet rottweiler jumped over the fence of its enclosure in the family yard

Next door neighbour Ludmila said: “The dog was chasing the boy all around the yard savagely mauling and tearing him.
“The blood was spraying in all directions. The yard turned red.”
She added: “The dog tore the child’s winter jacket and shoes off.
“Denis tried to hide behind a fence but got stuck between the bars.
“The dog immediately sank its teeth into his neck and ripped his throat out.”
His grandmother rushed outside when she heard his screams.
She was badly bitten herself trying to stop the attack and saw her grandson’s horrific death.
 Grandmother Olga was not able to stop her dog killing the boy
After killing the child, the dog calmed down and ran to its enclosure, said the witness, who called emergency services.
Paramedics found the boy lifeless in the pool of his own blood.
Forensics expert Igor Bursuk told local media: “The boy’s head, neck, chest, stomach and limbs were covered with severe lacerations.
“He died from extreme blood loss.
“The grandmother, who tried to fight the dog off, received deep wounds to her arms.”
The killer rottweiler was not aggressive when cops arrived, reports said.
Mr Bursuk said: “Officers entered the yard with their guns drawn. The dog was in its enclosure and behaved peacefully.
“It was non-aggressive and obeyed their commands.”
According to reports, the three-year-old dog was brought to the house three weeks ago after Olga and her husband Mykola lost their previous pet.
Devastated family members decided to put the dog to sleep.
Neighbour Ludmila said: “A vet came the same day and gave the dog an injection.
“It was calm and sad as if it knew it was going to die.”
Police spokeswoman Olga Mashko said: “A series of forensic examinations is being conducted to establish whether the dog had diseases that could provoke such behaviour.”
Earlier this week a man in France died after he fell off a ladder in Storm Ciara and five rottweilers ate his face.
Last year a two-year-old boy was mauled to death by two rottweilers that escaped from a neighbour's garden in California.

YUKON OK - HERO DAVID HARRIS BECOMES EMOTIONAL AS HE REMEMBERS THE HORRIFIC ROTTWEILER ATTACK ON A 6-YEAR-OLD GIRL AT A PLAYGROUND NEAR THE GOLF COURSE



(KFOR) – A six-year-old girl was attacked by a Rottweiler at Surrey Hills Golf Course.
“It was horrific. She was completely covered in blood,” said David Harris, who was nearby when the attack happened.
Harris was emotional as he remembered what he says was the worst day of his life.
“When we pulled up, I thought she was dead, but then I heard her scream,” Harris said.
He was at Surrey Hills Golf Course when he saw 6-year-old Della being dragged by the dog.
Her ear was completely severed and she had deep cuts in her head and down to her shoulders.
“He was tossing her around, I’m not kidding, like a rag doll,” said Harris.
News 4 talked to Della’s mom off camera. She says her daughter and her 7-year-old brother were near a playground behind the golf course when the dog jumped the fence, catching Della by her shirt and pulling her to the ground.
Her mom says if it wasn’t for Harris, her daughter might not be here.
“I just got into dad mode, I guess. I didn’t even think, I just grabbed him by the collar and pulled him off of the girl,” said Harris.
News 4 also talked to the dog’s owner, who says he’s distraught and still unsure why his dog attacked.
It's a terrible incident to happen. I don't wish this on anybody. Honestly, it was an accident. Unfortunately it turned out the way it did and I'm very sorry for the situation,” said Phillip Lavine, the dog’s owner.
Della is still in the hospital. Her mom says she is hoping she won’t have to undergo any more surgeries.
The dog is in Animal Control custody. There is no word yet on whether it will be put down.

JONESBORO AR - MADDIE SCHISLER, 6, WAS PLAYING WITH HER SISTER KYLEE, 9, IN THEIR FATHER'S YARD WHEN HIS MEAT GRINDER CRUNCHED DOWN ON HER NECK ...BIG SISTER BECAME A HERO AS SHE WENT INTO ACTION TO HELP HER YOUNGER SISTER


(KAIT) - A 6-year-old girl from Bay is back in school after being severely injured during a 
dog attack, and her sister is being praised after stepping in and fighting back.
Maddie Schisler, 6, and her big sister, Kylee Schisler, 9, were at their father’s Jonesboro home on Jan. 20 when THEIR FATHER'S PIT BULL  attacked Maddie in the side yard while the sisters were outside playing.
“The dog started sniffing and nipping her coat. Then we started running then the dog just grabbed her arm and slammed her on the ground and started biting her neck," says Kylee.
The 6-year-old says she went numb while the dog was gnawing on her.
“I don’t know how he got my neck and my arm, I didn’t feel anything," Maddie says, pointing to her neck brace.
The siblings said this isn’t the first encounter they’ve had with the pet, which was staying with their father.
With everything happening so fast, Kylee said she had to think quickly to help her little sister.

“I don’t know how he got my neck and my arm, I didn’t feel anything," Maddie says, pointing to her neck brace.
THE SIBLINGS SAID THIS ISN'T THE FIRST ENCOUNTER THEY'VE HAD WITH THE PET, which was staying with their father.
Once their father came out realizing what was happening, the girls said he and his roommate pulled the dog off of Kylee and began adding pressure to the wounds that were bleeding from the attack.
Kylee then called 911 for help and moments later their father called their mother to let her know what happened.
“I really didn’t know if she was going to be okay or not and that was really really scary," says the girls’ mother, Amber Duvall.
The 6-year-old was eventually airlifted to LeBonhuer Children’s Hospital in Memphis, according to a family friend, with several injuries including a broken rib and vertebrae, nerve and muscle damages, and a blood clot.
“I tried not to cry cause if I cried, that would make her upset and I tried not to make her upset cause I couldn’t handle it," Kylee said as she would watch her sister in the hospital bed being treated by staff.
Maddie returned back to school last week after being out for a few days, and now she’s sitting at a special desk and chair made to make her comfortable. However, she’s having trouble writing with her non-dominant hand, which is caused by the nerve and muscle damage during the attack.

Duvall says her daughter will now start occupational therapy and may possibly start physical therapy down the road.
Kylee expressed how thankful she was to God for keeping her sister here on earth and how much worse it could have been.
“God was there at the right time and the right place, so I’m thankful for that," the 9-year-old said.
“Even though me and Kylee fight a lot, we still love each other," says Maddie, with a smile on her face.

Duvall said the dog was put down and warns parents to be watchful and vigilant of your children because anything can happen in a split second.
