Horrific. Especially in light of the fact that an eerily similar incident took place 12/23 in Charlotte:

In this link, the owner admits that the dogs CLIMBED out of the fence on a regular basis.

This makes me sick to think of the police handing out verbal warnings to FELONS about their loose pit bulls!

It seems the neighbors heard and did not go to the aid of the screaming woman or call 911 immediately.

"Makayla was at home because the Union County Schools were closed due to icy roads."

Yes, this case summons Anastasia. Let's hope this one ends in criminal charges.

Makayla's family owned at least one pit bull (you can see it penned in the video). Quite a horrible spot for Makayla's mother to be in, her child dead and mother hospitalized after a pit bull attack. Her mother is still quite a defender of the breed:

"Makayla's mother also said that she was upset that the media had called the dogs vicious, even though the dogs killed her daughter. She said they had always been friendly up until Wednesday's attack."

Animal People editor Merritt Clifton...."Pit bulls..are accordingly dogs who not only must be handled with special precautions, but also must be regulated with special requirements appropriate to teh risk they mya pose to the public and other animals, IF THEY ARE TO BE KEPT AT ALL. (emphasis mine)

A Vick dog has been adopted to a home with a baby:

Another pit bull attack:

And other breed attacks:

The grandmother will be haunted by this for the rest of her life. How horrible to watch your beloved granddaughter being eaten alive by savage dogs and there is absolutely nothing you can do. You can't shoo them away. You can't yell at them (if you do, the nutters will blame you for making it worse), you can't kick them, or punch them, you can't spray water on them, or anything of the things you can do to get other breeds to stop an attack.

And the mother must be in shock -- I want to think that anyway -- for her to come out and defend the dogs that ripped her daughter apart and landed her own mother in the hospital.

I just feel so awful for the grandmother -- the description of her screams -- primeval.

Dear God, I pray for this family.

This incident occurred the next day about 100 miles away:

""I came around their pool," Michael went on, "She's just laying on the ground, and I could see her arms being ripped apart. I lost it. I charged the biggest pit I saw first pulling on her arm. They backed away a little bit. I tackled it and threw it as hard as I could when it came at me. I hit it with a 2 x 4 with nails upside the head. When I turned around for the other dog and it tried to move away, I noticed it's chain was wrapped around her neck. It was choking her, and I was trying to figure out how to get the dog off of her."

The neighbourhood fear,pet killings,unprovoked attacks on owners and the deaths of children will continue until these doggs are banned.This is the only thing that will work.......As long as these dogs are in our communities... the Killing will continue.
