Pit Bull Attacks Two German Shepherd Dogs In Unadilla Township
April 17, 2010
4/17/10 - A Pit Bull was seized by Livingston County Animal Control after attacking two German Shepherd dogs. On Thursday at 10:50 a.m., Unadilla Township Police were called out to an East Trebesh Drive home in response to a dog attack. A man reported that his neighbors Pit Bull managed to get out of its fenced-in yard and attacked his two German Shepherds. One received life-threatening injuries to his neck while the second also had serious injuries. Due to the vicious nature of the attack, and the fact that the Pit Bull didnt have a license or its vaccination shots, it was seized by Animal Control. Police are seeking charges against the 19-year-old owner for failing to control a vicious dog, and a report has been submitted to the Livingston County Prosecutor's office for review and possible charges.

One thing I have learned. If I ever have to live near someone who keeps pit bulls, I will certainly purchase a Mossburg and keep it loaded and close to hand.
Open question to all FReepers: Is there a breed of dog that can actually deal with an agressive pit bull attack? I am thinking Irish Wolf Hound or Rhodesian Ridgeback, but they are so huge and expensive to maintain.
Dapple Dachshund and sedate pit.
That's because it isn't true.
Is there a breed of dog that can actually deal with an agressive pit bull attack?
My Wolf/Malamute/Shepherd ate more than one dog- including a pit bull. The pit bull didn't even tear him up that bad. (though a Rot did, as did other Malamute/Huskies).
I should have added that when a dog yawns it means submission. The pit yawns.
Another pit bull...
Dachshunds are either absolutely fearless or incredibly stupid. What other critter goes down a badger hole to face off a badger in its’ own den?
A dachshund once bit me in the ankle, when I was going door-to-door with campaign canvassing. It didn’t hurt, but the owner ticked me off.
And I would support legislation requiring all pit bulls to be killed or sterilized.
And I guess this proves that lions aren’t so aggressive and imposible to control:
Pit Bull saves 2 women from deadly cobra,dies wagging his tail
His attention turned away from Maya for a second so that he could push my front door open and she followed. At that point I grabbed him in the groin as hard as I could. He doubled over and released the grip around my neck. I pushed him away and grabbed Maya by the collar. I like to think, at that moment, he told himself he had picked the wrong woman to mess with. He looked at me one last time, only for a second, and then simply walked away. I waited and followed him from a distance just in case he decided he wasnt done yet. He was getting into a car. I repeated the license plate number over and over in my head and ran back inside to call 911.
The police arrived after only a couple of minutes. Officers gathered evidence and asked so many questions. I told them how Maya had come to my rescue. I also told them that Maya had something red on her face. They asked me if she was alright or if she was injured. When I checked her, she looked up at me and had such a proud look on her face. She was licking her chops and wagging her tail. If dogs could talk, I think at that moment she would have said he sure wasnt expecting to see me, was he? Maya was fine. Now the officers were trying to determine the best way to swab the head of an angry pit bull. After a couple of tries, and lots of patience, they were able to retrieve what they needed. I told myself that he was going to be arrested the same day. He wasnt. Everyday following the attack, I worried that he would be back.
Sometime later, Detective Kimber asked me to come down to the station. He had pictures of potential suspects and wanted to know if any of them looked like my attacker. After writing out a statement about one of the photos, Detective Kimber said we processed the DNA and got a match. It was same man that I had picked from the photos. The lab had processed the blood from Mayas face and got a match. I could not believe it. It turns out this man had a record and this was his third strike. He was arrested shortly after being identified. Anthony Easley, 38 years old, now facing life in prison if convicted. After the arrest, Maya became the local hero. Ive learned that our story has reached across the country. I wish everyone knew how grateful I am for the support and the prayers. It makes each day a little easier to deal with. I cry sometimes when I hug Maya and ask her What would I do without you? But first, I thank God for bringing Maya into my life.
“I'm so proud and grateful that Maya has been honored with the National Dog Day Hero Dog Award for 2008 and feel truly blessed to have her as part of the family. We cant imagine life without her.” ~Angela Marcelino

Yes. I don't think I could afford to pay him Union wages!
LOL, that puma looks awfully surprised, like he doesn't know what bit him!
