Tell us about the attack
My daughter was walking with her two-year-old child. When she approached the door of the apartment building, a large illegal pit bull lunged toward her child’s face.
If my daughter had not grabbed her child as quick as she had, the aggressive large pit bull would have bit her little face. The superintendent rents to owners of pit bulls that are not muzzled. We are so terrified to even walk or go anywhere around or in the apartment building. Why is the owner allowed to rent to persons of such… are they not breaking a law? Can they be held accountable for a dog attack? I don’t know what to do. We not only fear the pit bulls but also the pit bull owners. I cannot even let my grandchild be safe when they visit me. I don’t know what TO DO.
How has your life changed as a result of the attack?
We are so in fear, afraid that one of us could get murdered by an illegal pit bull.
What would you like people to know as a result of your attack?
Why are landlords allowed to rent to owners of pit bulls, which are banned in Ontario? Why would anyone want a pit bull that murders children, babies, elderly, pets?
