Trying to Stop a Fight
Long Beach, CA - A pit bull owner is lucky to be alive and yielding both arms after she attempted to break up a fight that her two pit bulls were emblazed in. The woman was hospitalized with dog bites to her arms and hands. She now joins other female owners of pit bulls that have suffered the same fate in Washington, Ohio and Texas. In the latter state, the woman, Vicki Jefferies, lost both of her arms.
Last month in Indiana, Annette Williams suffered two arm amputations due to her pit bull as well. This instance, however, did not involve breaking up a fight. There was reportedly only one dog involved. No one knows why her dog Toby turned on her. As with many pit bulls, the dog had no history of violence before the brutal attack. In fact, Toby was enrolled in obedience classes at the time of the attack.
