DNA Taken From Pitbull That Raped 2-Year-Old

Police say DNA has been taken from the pitbull that attacked a toddler by allegedly sodomizing it last weekend. It was a disturbing and violent attack. The two year old child is in Women and Children's Hospital. Neighbors heard a mother screaming that her child was being raped. Now people are calling to adopt the pitbull.

Lockport, NY -- Police say DNA has been taken from the pitbull that attacked a toddler by allegedly sodomizing it last weekend. It was a disturbing and violent attack. The two year old child is in Women and Children's Hospital. Neighbors heard a mother screaming that her child was being raped.

Lockport police say taking DNA from the dog is part of the investigation.

Lockport Police received a 911 call from a frantic City of Lockport mother last Sunday afternoon.

The mother told Lockport Police that she left her two year old unattended for a short time and after hearing the baby scream, she ran to see what was wrong.

When she got in the room, she told Lockport Police the dog, named "Bear" had sodomized the toddler. The mother screamed, scaring the dog out of the house, but the dog was still attached to the baby.

One neighbor told 2 On Your Side, she heard the mother screaming "the dog is raping my baby." Neighbors ran to help, but only one man was able to get the dog and child apart.

Anastacio Castillo says "I tried to get the dog away from the baby, the dog was already inside the baby." When the baby was finally free, he was visibly sick. Castillo says the boy was vomiting and bleeding.

The baby was rushed to Women and Children's Hospital where the toddler underwent reconstructive surgery.

The dog is being held at the Niagara County SPCA for evalution. An animal behavior specialist is scheduled to evaluate the pitbull on Friday.

Since the attack, over 20 people have called the SPCA asking to adopt the pitbull. Hear those calls by clicking Video.

The Niagara County District Attorney's office is assisting Lockport Police with the investigation.

Miranda Workman, behavior specialist at Purrfect Paws in Amherst says, "Most likely this is not a learned behavior. Dogs in tact, not spayed or neutered have a higher hormonal drive."

She urges parents to never, ever leave their children alone with a dog.

Lockport, NY -- Lockport Police say any firsthand information from the public will be helpful. They are investigating how a pitbull sodomized a toddler.

Someone has first hand knowledge about the dog because they know the dog's name is 'Bear'. What I'm curious about is how the dog got into the house.

A dog humping your leg does not cause you to have a need for reconstructive surgery.

How long was that short time?

Never ever leave a child alone with an animal.

Dog thingys have barbs that prevent uncoupling - easy to see how lots of damage was done.

What's to evaluate? They gonna put the pit on the couch and talk about early puppyhood experiences at Michael Vick's house? Just shoot the damn thing.

Extremely aberrant behavior for a pit, by the way. The breed is known for their docility and protectiveness towards family and children, unless trained otherwise by low IQ a———s who are masculinity-challenged. Someone has trained this dog to act that way, and from the way the posting reads, it was someone in that house. One can only imagine what kind of sexual deviant would want to adopt a dog like that.

I admit to being wary as well. So, the child wasn't wearing a diaper or underpants? The 2 year old just held still as the dog engaged?

It just seems improbable.

Never ever leave a child alone with an animal.

From the Niagara Gazette:

Police say a 2-year-old boy was alone with the famiy’s pit bull for only minutes when he was attacked and sodomized by the dog, a family pet that had never before shown any signs of aggression.

Lockport Police Detective Capt. Larry Eggert said the toddler had removed his own soiled diaper and asked to be changed just before the attack. His mother sent him into the living room to get a new diaper, Eggert said.

The boy was alone with the dog for only a brief time, Eggert said.

When the mother heard the boy scream, she walked into the living room and found the dog had mounted the child, Eggert said. The mother reportedly began yelling at the dog, which spooked it, causing it to run out the door and onto the porch, still attached to the boy.

Who woulda thunk?

On the other hand, who hasn't had a dog hump their leg? I've even seen spayed female dogs do it!

Nobody has to “train” an intact male dog to hump anything it can find. I’d like to know why a naked 2-yr-old boy and a pit bull were left alone together.

This is becoming a sexual discrimination hate crime.....against the rights of the Pit Bull dog. Expect lawsuits from PETA and the ACLU to oppose the bigot homophobes accusing the dog of a sexual crime. /sc.

The use of the term "soiled" diaper makes on think that the diaper wasn't just wet. Is a mother likely to allow a "dirty" 2 year old to wander around the house?

Maybe the reporting is just imprecise.

Look, dogs make good pets because they confuse their owners family for their own. They protect their owners children and will not be happy unless they sleep and eat where their owners sleep and eat.

So for a male pit bull to mistake a baby for a female dog is not theat far away from any other behavior. Male dogs get few chances with a female so they are likely to mount anything they can, your leg, the cat, a child. As long as the dog did not hurt the baby in any other way and he was not hurt.

To all,
This story smells like a lie. Pit bulls are nasty dogs but they can’t sodomize a 2 year old. The two year old human wouldn’t sit still enough for that to happen. This is a case of dirt bag owners telling a lie to cover up something else.

If I did, I’d at least be a willing participant. And it would be a better looking dog than a pit bull. The 2-year-old didn’t get either of those choices, which is something that wouldn’t need be pointed out to even an average mouth-breather.

“Since the attack, over 20 people have called the SPCA asking to adopt the pitbull.

Sick bastards.”

Perhaps the calls are from South Beach? After all, FloriDUH has been ever sooo multiculturally sensitive.

Which may be the reason that Florida was in the news when one of Florida’s many Mexicans, who was found having sex with his dog said, “It’s my dog.”

After all, in this post structuralist world, there is no right and wrong.

RRRRIIIIIGHT! /sarc
