Pitbull Frenzy

About the attack
I was walking my 4 year-old female German Shepherd a few houses from being home. I saw a pitbull through a neighbor's driveway gate looking at me and my dog. A man was walking toward the pass-through gate and I thought, "I hope he can control his dog because it looked like it wanted to attack my dog." Next thing I knew was the pitbull was outside the gate attacking my dog and clamping on. I grabbed the pitbull by the tail and pulled as hard as I could. It let go of my dog but turned around and bit me on the leg. My dog went to the vet ER, I went to the ER and got my puncture wound treated. My dog has a lacerated leg and I am in pain (this happened 12 hours ago).

About the attack
August 24, 2019, I was walking my puppy on his leash in my front yard. The neighbor’s 2 pit bulls jumped their fence, one jumped at me, the other grabbed my puppy off the leash. Then they both attacked him. My parents had just arrived, my dad laid in the horn for the neighbors to come. I could watch...I couldn’t help. My puppy had a $1,500 vet bill and spent 6 months on quarantine because they failed to vaccinate their dogs (my puppy wasn’t old enough for his vaccine to be in his system for 21 days). The neighbors response was”if my dogs wanted to kill your dog they would’ve”

Location: Massachusetts

About the attack
2 loose pit bulls charged out of a wooded area and circled me with my horse as I rode down my street. Upon returning home while trying to alert my family including elderly parents and young nephews who were waiting outside in my yard, the pit bulls stopped circling the horse and ran straight for the 4 family dogs (2 Welsh corgis, one golden retriever and one black lab). Before the humans and animals could be rushed inside to safety, the 2 pit bulls attacked the black lab and latched on to and bit his hind leg. The police were called and the dogs were trapped in a nearby fenced horse paddock. The owners were out of town and the dog sitter had not noticed their escape. The black lab was transported to emergency vet for treatment and the pit bulls were ordered to quarantine.

About the attack
Two weeks ago my 11 yr old daughter was walking our 18 lb dog on a leash. A newly acquired female pit bull mix jumped a 4 foot fence and viciously mauled my dog. My daughter tried in vain to punch the pit's head and grabbed her to release my dog's head out of her locked jaws. My daughter's screams alerted neighbors. Grown men couldn't get the pit off my dog. One brave neighbor scooped up my dog when she dropped him, poised to attack again. My dog was fortunate to survive. The owner of the pit bull was a 73 yr old man living with his ill 93 yr old mother. The dog was a foster.
