Who is Protecting Our Children?
Ft. Walton Beach, FL - Children getting attacked by pit bulls walking to and from school bus stops is on a sharp incline. Furthermore, cases have been recorded recently when the pit bull bolts onto the bus and bites a child inside. On May 29th, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, a young girl who had just gotten off the school bus was viciously attacked by a pit bull.
The dog, Angel, busted its leash and attacked the little girl without provocation, said an offense report from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office. A witness told a deputy he was able to get the dog off the girl by punching it in the head several times. The witness also said the child had been severely bitten in the triceps region of her arm.
The girl's father took her to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center and was unable to complete a statement at that time because he was caring for his daughter.
