La Paternal - It was recently reported that a pit bull attacked its owner, tore off his arm and killed him in his own home. The victim, Nestor Di Tullio, was about 35-years old. He was still alive when police arrived, but his door was locked. The man bled to death before he could be helped. This deadly attack is a reminder that just as pit bulls attack and kill their owners in the U.S., they carry out the same grisly acts across the world. This is why entire countries choose to regulate them.
(Google translation) "When police arrived, Nestor was still screaming. He said "kill the dog" but the door was locked from inside. The neighbors believe that when police pulled down the door, the dog let go of her leg and bit her neck. Nestor bled to death. They say that those who were there to stop the police dog hit 14 shots and a bullet in the head.The above translation has issues, but it was the only news account where we could find the victim's name.
Blackie was a brown and white Pitbull impeccable. It was about four years who was in charge of Nestor. But how a man who lived from odd jobs in a room full of things together in the street had a dog race? "It's that he had given a lady who had kids and was afraid little ones," says Lucas.
Blackie had already shown their teeth twice. The first time was on 8 July 2008 when he attacked his friend and sent him to hospital. The second was a few months ago, when he attacked a girl on the street."

It happened last night in a house at 2000 Donato Alvarez Avenue, about three blocks from La Chacarita cemetery.
A man, whose identity was not disclosed, died from serious injuries after being attacked by his own dog, pit bull breed inside a house in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of La Paternal.
The neighbors began to hear screams and worried, decided to call 911. When the troops arrived a few minutes later, entered the house to see what was happening, and found a gruesome scene: the owner of the house lying on the ground. He was dead, killed by his own dog.
The dog was enraged and attempted to attack the policemen as well. At first they tried to control it without harming it. But it was impossible and since they feared a new attack, the police decided to use their guns to put the dog to sleep.
