JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 4-year-old girl and her grandmother had some strong words to describe a pit bull they said attacked them Tuesday.
"It's stupid," 4-year-old Tytionna said.
"Kill it. They should put it down," her grandmother added. The two were on a walk with Tytionna's 2-month-old brother when the pit bull the family was dog-sitting got loose.
It charged the trio and bit Tytionna in the face, dragging her to the ground. Then it bit her leg and shook her. "It swallowed my earring," she said.
A Good Samaritan, who didn't want to be identified, ran out just in time and started kicking the dog. She said she couldn't just stand by and watch.
"To see it happen was truly terrifying. Terrifying," she said. "You just don't know how vulnerable you are."
Tytionna got five stitches in her face and six in her leg.
The dog still hasn't been taken into custody or tested for rabies.
"It might bite someone else's child or an adult. They need to kill him," Tytionna's grandmother said.
FIRST to ping Chet!
It’s not the dogs fault.
It’s the owners.
Why are such a high percentage of dog abusers so attracted to pitbulls?
Pronounciation of this has my curiousity piqued.
I don’t need any pictures.
Gotta wonder hold old she is. 20?
No, what was stupid is that you were dog sitting it.
It's all about the bling.
If ever there was a headline where a comma was critical, this is it.
We had a doberman when I was a kid. My brother used to love hopping on his back, grabbing his ears, and riding him like a pony. It was no surprise when one day that dog reared back and planted a few canines into my brother’s face.
We almost NEVER hear about what was transpiring before and during the attack. It’s like when the media says, “The gun went off.” Sure it went off, that’s what happens when you have your finger on the trigger!
Pitbulls are like guns. They’re amazing protectors and trustworthy companions, but misuse or abuse them, and you or someone else WILL be hurt.
My guess as a linguist:
No kidding. I need new glasses after reading 4 year old grandma.
“It swallowed my earring,” she said.
What a great biology lesson for this child - in a few hours, she can get it back.
You’re falling down on the job.
Pit bull owners are criminals.
LOL...That is positively the most ignorant, blatantly stupid, moronic thing I’ve read in over 10 years on Free Republic.
You're right. I was too kind. Pit bull owners are predators.
