Pit Bull Mauls Owner In Attack
Cincinnati, OH - The owner of a pit bull was recently mauled by his dog. The man has been hospitalized with serious injuries from his shoulder to his wrist. Neighbors were told to stay indoors until the pit bull was captured, which still had blood on his mouth.
Several officers, concerned the dog might next go after them, had shotguns ready. While the uncertainty of the situation kept many residents at bay, the SPCA officer was able to take the dog without further incident. A neighbor said that the the dog must have snapped to go after someone so violently, especially its owner.
In 2003, the City of Cincinnati banned pit bulls. The article does not state if this dog was registered prior the ban and therefore legal to own or if it was unregistered and illegal to own. If the latter is true, the victimized owner will also be slapped with stiff fines.
