12-year old Melissa Rollins was attacked by a packed of dogs as she played basketball. The 80 lb german shepherd chow mix tried to drag Melissa to a wooded area. Her brother, 13-year old Kevin, bravely fought the dog off, hitting it in the face with his shoes. Melissa suffered severe gashes on her legs, hand and neck. She spent 3 days in the hospital after surgery.
The dogs appear to have been abandoned and likely attacked Melissa for food. One adult and 4 pups were trapped and euthanized. There are most likely 2 more adult german shepherds remaining in the area.

A single Tiger mauling commands 24/7 media attention for days..yet 20 plus deaths, hundreds of maulings and law enforcement having to dispatch APBTs on a near daily basis is little more than a footnote in the media.
