Pit Bull Owner Brutally Attacked by his Own Dogs

By Brian Chase on February 15, 2014 - No comments

PitbullA 53-year-old man was seriously injured in a dog attack after a pack of pit bulls, which may have belonged to him, turned around and mauled him. According to an NBC news report, a neighbor who saw the attack intervened by ramming his van through a chain-link fence hitting one of the pit bulls and scaring the rest away.

The Good Samaritan, Ross Papish, told officials that the victim was getting attacked on Honey Lane in an unincorporated area of Lake Elsinore. The victim was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and animal control officers impounded six pit bulls. Neighbors told officials that the victim looked as if his face had been ripped off and that pieces of his flesh lay on the ground.

My thoughts and prayers are with the injured dog bite victim who has been critically injured. I wish him the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. …Read the rest »

Pit Bulls: Propaganda or Killing Machine?

By Brian Chase on October 1, 2013 - No comments

pit bulls - friendly or dangerous?

People fear Pit-bulls more than any other dog. Attacks happen everyday, but it seems the “pit bull” always grabs the headlines.

The debate among pit bull owners and the opposition heats up.


Is there a resolution in sight?
In the past few months there has been a lot of news about pit bull attacks.  Two that captured headlines here in California were the mauling of two toddlers, who, in separate and unrelated attacks were killed. In one of the cases the toddler was attacked by 7-8 pit bulls while visiting a relative.  Latest reports claimed the boy may have climbed through an open window into the backyard. The grandmother  discovered him missing from the room and searched for him only to find the boy dead in the backyard with his clothes torn off. Did the boy startle the dogs. Did a pack mentality come over the dogs? No one knows for sure, but the toddler was no match for the dogs.

These attacks are not isolated. Every week we see headlines telling of horrendous pit-bull attacks that seem to come out of nowhere. One has to wonder why are so many pit-bulls roaming the streets? Where are the owners, why are the dogs out?

San Diego Mailman Mauled by Pit Bull Talks about Dog Attack

By Brian Chase on August 5, 2013 - No comments

Buddy Siso, a San Diego letter carrier who was mauled by a pit bull while on the job two weeks ago, spoke out for the first time this week, NBC San Diego reports. Siso was on his normal mail route in Golden Hill on July 19 when he was bitten by a pit bull. He said the dog started trying to jump over the fence as Siso started putting the mail into a mailbox on his route. The dog then pushed through the gate jumping on Siso’s throat. Siso said a Good Samaritan and Siso’s mail satchel saved his life by preventing the pit bull from digging deeper into his neck.

After the incident, a neighbor helped apply compression to his throat and put iodine on his leg, Siso said. Siso suffered eight punctures to his left knee and bites two inches deep in his neck. He describes the attack as one of the “scariest moments” of his life. The dog that attacked Siso has since been euthanized. …Read the rest »
