Tell us about the attack

On Oct 22, 2022, at around 3:30 PM when my wife was at the door cleaning the porch area, a resident in a neighbouring unit opened their door and their unleashed pit bull walked out. The pit bull saw my wife and immediately without warning or provocation leapt on her, grabbing her private area in his mouth and knocking her over. This resulted in serious injuries in her private parts. In attempt to escape from this pit bull, my wife also hit the wall injuring her left eye.

I called 911. A police squad came, an ambulance arrived and my wife was rushed to the hospital bleeding profusely. After a 5 hour long stay in the ER and work by various doctors and an obstetrician, she has stitches on left eyebrow and 8 stitches on her private parts.

How has your life changed as a result of the attack?
My family is now in constant fear of the lurking danger of a proven aggressive pit bull being harbored next door and lunging at us every time we step out in his presence. I have an 8-year-old girl which I am now afraid to take out of the house.

Legal Consequences
We filed a complaint with the police, but there has been no action yet.

What would you like people to know as a result of your attack?
Complain to authorities right on first signs of hostility so that remedial action can be taken.
