Pima County, AZ - Drexel Heights Fire District responded to a call for a boy attacked by a dog. The spokeswoman said the boy was playing on a trampoline at the home and that the family pit bull named Scarface was also outside. The boy's stepmother heard screams and came outside to find the dog attacking him. The boy was airlifted to University Medical Center.
A relative said that the dog was attacking two other dogs in the yard when it turned on the boy. The pit bull will be euthanized and its head removed for a rabies check. No charges have been filed but the Pima County Sheriff's Office will investigate. The boy was in serious but stable condition with wounds on his leg from the thigh to the knee, and he is expected to recover.

I guess we can now add the trampoline to the list of activities that trigger pit bulls:
taking out the trash
reaching for your purse
getting out of your car
opening your front door
walking snack sized dogs
And of course if you are unlucky enough to be a hooved animal, look out.
Note to Mary Hart: better steer clear of pit bulls. Your voice could bring on more than just seizures.

You have one terrific memory.
Looks like the pit nutters new favorite word is "loyal". I've seen it popping up everywhere. The newest claim is that pits fight to the death for their owners because they are loyal and out of love for the owner. What will they come up with next?
