Pit Bull Jumps Through Window, Attacks Little Girl
Stockton, CA - Two animal control officers were attacked by a pit bull while following up on a report that a dog had leapt through an open window, crossed a street and bit a girl in an unprovoked attack. Both officers were taken to a hospital, where they were treated and released. The extent of the injuries to the young girl was unavailable.
According to Ernest Molieri of the San Joaquin County Animal Control Division, when the two county officers arrived at the house, the dog attacked them, inflicting deep puncture wounds in the left arm and midsection of one officer and the thumb of the other. He said. "It was the worst dog attack on county animal control officers in recent memory."
After being injured, the officer who had been bitten in the midsection was able to retrieve the necessary equipment to restrain the dog while the other officer held the dog in a bearhug. Gerald Eqes, one of the victims, says the county has not provided enough safety for animal control officers to do their jobs effectively. "We have been asking for vests, Tasers and sidearms," he said.
The requests have gone unmet.

Owner of Pit Bulls Has Both Arms Amputated
Greensburg, IN - Recently, Annette Williams was viciously attacked by her two pit bulls (no one knows why). When the story was reported, Williams had lost one arm. Now, she has lost both arms from the elbow down. The family has set up a donation fund. It is doubtful that the ASPCA, who misleads the public, into thinking, "it's all in how you raise'm!" will donate a dime. We doubt any pit bull owners will give a cent either.
Rottweiler Attacks Owner; Dog Had Bite Record
Pottsville, PA - In a separate attack that also involves a dog owner, a rottweiler named Zeus tore up its owner Shannon Reed, 25. She is currently in critical condition at Lehigh Valley Hospital. Upon her request, the dog was euthanized. Last year, Zeus bit an 18-year old woman. The attack was not sufficient enough to legally label the dog as "dangerous." Officials sent the dog home so that it could attack again -- and it did!
