Brooklyn, NY - The Brooklyn tot romped around his hospital bed yesterday, a day after surgeons reattached the ear he almost lost in a pit bull attack. Kamar snacked on chicken and rice and played with his siblings. His stitches, cuts and bruises kept him from smiling, but his siblings giggled throughout the afternoon.
The boy was in the basement of his cousin's home when 24-year-old Frantz Cesar went berserk. After his wife, Tiffany, ordered him out of the house, Cesar kicked out an air conditioner and threw his pit bull, Rocky, through the open window. Rocky went wild in the midst of six playing and sleeping children, mauling Kamar. Cesar was arraigned on charges of assault and criminal possession of a weapon -- the pit bull -- and held in lieu of $15,000 bail.
Judge Robert Kalish issued orders of protection for the Reynolds family and Cesar's wife. Cesar came to court in baggy black pants and kept quite during the hearing. But his lawyer Paul Lieberman said although the case was "horrible and tragic, it was an accident." Kamar's angry dad, Lamont Reynolds, 31, said he's avoiding Cesar for fear he might hurt Cesar the way his son was hurt. "I might just be behind bars with him," he said.
Rocky was euthanized.

This is an evil man. I don't want to hear about the irresponsible owner because folks had this fool thrown a Golden Retriever through the window nothing would have happened to this child. This dog, the pit bull, has all the genetic traits to fight and kill dogs and this guy just monopolized on them--- I hope this guy goes away a long time and I'm glad Rocky is dead.
