Two boys, ages 5 and 11, were injured in a Riverside dog attack after a pit bull broke loose from a temporary restraint and bit them. According to a report in The Press-Enterprise, the dog attack occurred the night of August 9, 2014 when the boys were waiting for a friend outside his home on Avenue 43 near Burr Street in Indio. Officials say the 4-year-old pit bull was on a leash held by the friend’s mother. She tied the dog to something to restrain it, but the pit bull broke loose and attacked the boys.

The 5-year-old suffered a bite wound to the back of his head, while the 11-year-old sustained small puncture wounds in the hand and stomach. The dog’s owner surrendered the pit bull to Riverside County Animal Services for humane euthanasia. Officials say the dog in April had bitten the owner’s son in the head.

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.

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?
