Pet Dogs Kill Owner
Milwaukee, WI - After a 49-year old woman was found dead at her home over the weekend, the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Monday she died due to "maulings by dogs." Hong Saengsamly was found dead at her home in the 500 block of North 28th Street late Saturday after her son, Jack, stopped by for a well-being check. When Jack entered into the home, he encountered her three dogs guarding the body and growling -- two pit bulls and a chihuahua.
The medical examiner listed Hong Saengsamly's cause of death as "multiple puncture and blunt force injuries" due to "mauling by dogs."Jack tried to get the dogs away from her, but one of the pit bulls became so aggressive, he had to shoot it multiple times, according to the police report. Saengsamly was found in the kitchen. In a separate room, connected to the kitchen, a large black and white pit bull was lying on its side after being shot twice. There were two more bullet holes in the north wall of the room, according to the report. Jack claimed none of the dogs were violent and "had never attacked a person before."

Obviously owners of pit bull dogs and their mixes are totally unaware of the dangers of owning/raising these animals, and most frequently, pay with their lives or the life of another family member, friend, stranger, pet or farm animal. DNA in the pit fortells its' future but owners refuse to heed. STOP BREEDING this poor animal!!!

I can just hear the pitbull apologists now, "she obviously died of natural causes and the pit-bulls were guarding her body", or, as Your Quiet Neighbor posted "the chihuahua did it." If zoning ordinances don't allow people to keep mountain lions, in their household, I don't understand why they would allow a pit bull.
