Tell us about the attack
My younger brother was walking with a girlfriend and her dog in a city park when an unleashed pit bull attacked. The girlfriend’s dog was killed by the pit bull. My brother needed to be taken to the hospital and will have permanent damage to his arm and hand.
As for me, I was attacked by a next door neighbor’s four pit bulls when they invaded by property and ran into my open garage. Luckily I did not have any injuries.
How has your life changed as a result of the attack?
Myself and my family are fearful of pit bulls and possible injuries they could cause. My little brother has expressed fear of all dogs as a result.
My brother’s case seems to have been largely forgotten. He has never received a penny for medical expenses or any victim compensation. No lawyer would take his case as the pit bull owner was a felon and had no money.
I have now reported my neighbor’s pit bulls to the police twice and have seen no consequences.
What would you like people to know as a result of your attack?
Pit bulls can be dangerous and have the strength and temperament to cause severe damage.
