PALMDALE (CBSLA.com) Authorities were searching for what were described as vicious pit bull dogs Thursday after a woman was fatally attacked in Antelope Valley.
Los Angeles County Sheriffs deputies in Palmdale announced a search was underway along 155 Street East and Avenue S in the city of Littlerock.
The search comes after Los Angeles County Fire officials responded to a report of a female adult attacked by as many as four dogs around 9:30 a.m. near 110th Street East and Avenue S, according to Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Scott Miller.
The victim reportedly passed away while being transported to Antelope Valley Medical Center, according to L.A. County CEO Bill Fujioka.
Officials warned residents to call 911 if they spotted the dogs.
The identity of the victim was not immediately released.
I bet the owners are surprised and these were such good dogs.
I’ve got Jack Russels and I keep them contained.
If I were King, they WOULD be surprised.
yeah and .. here’s another good one ... don’t blame the animals ... blame the owners.
In before “It’s not the breed?”
They were probably misunderstood as pups.
Call 911 if I see them? I’ll shoot them THEN call 911.
They were ojust turning their lives around.
Funny that virtually every pit bull eventually had crappy owners.
you should, those jack russels are dangerous!! :)
“Just turning their lives around.”
Mine took the armpit out of my shirt the other day because I took a turtle away from him and was holding it out of reach.
I have a redbone coonhound that does that just for the heck of it. He seems to transport himself straight up about 5 feet without any effort.
He’s only 7 mos old and we’re still learning.
There was a big bust not too long ago in that area regarding Mexicans setting up dog fights and cock fights. Mexicans and blood sports. Who knew?
Did they put the town under lockdown?
Can’t be, these dogs make nice pets! /s
That’s a sparsely populated section of the Analope Valley
Has Chet been at your house?
while we’re on the topic of pit bulls...I thought this was interesting:
“...shelters are persuading adopters to choose pit bulls at about five times the rate that dog purchasers choose to buy pit bulls when they buy dogs from breeders.” and “...about 75% of the pit bulls and pit mixes arriving at shelters are killed, either due to dangerous behavior or simply because shelters are receiving pit bulls in ever-escalating volume. Each year from a third to 45% of the total U.S. pit bull population enters an animal shelter, a phenomenon never seen with any other dog breed. “
There are some pit bulls remaining...alive? Must be the ammo shortage.
A more detailed report from Fox News:
Authorities in rural Los Angeles County were warning people to be on the lookout for four pit bulls suspected of killing a 63-year-old jogger Thursday.
Sheriff’s Lt. John Corina told reporters that a woman in a car saw the dogs attacking the female jogger Thursday morning. The witness called 911 and honked her horn to try to get the dogs to stop.
“When the first deputy on scene saw one dog still attacking the woman, he tried to chase the dog away,” Corina said. “The dog ran off into the desert, then turned around and attacked the deputy, the deputy fired a round at the dog and tried to kill the dog, and the dog took off into the desert.”
Those things need to be hunted down and killed.
Sure...leave it to CNN to put up the picture of him as a cute little kid...
I watched a Bull fight in 1950s Monterrey Mexico as a young lad, between the bull fights and the grotesque looking starving dogs with their ribs showing and terrified of all humans, the broken glass lining the tops of the walls around houses that also had bars on the windows, and the begging street urchins and paying the layabout men to "watch" your car when you parked at the curb, and the bar length urinal that was also the foot rest as you leaned on the bar to drink a beer in full site of everyone as you could pee without moving or setting down your drink, and my travel through tiny remote 1950s villages, I know a Mexico that not everyone knows.
Just cuz he has a hoodie on doesn’t mean that he should be profiled, pursued, and shot down like a dog. He cud have some Skittles and Ice Tea in those pockets.
Reason #532 to ALWAYS have a firearm.
Love it. Back when we could stand Shep we loved the “dogs in clothes”. The wife got sweaters for our Dobermans but they just ate them.
Ah, yes. The innocent pleasures of the third world. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you. Never actually went to a bullfight, though.
Bull fighting is long sustained cruelty and tormenting the beast until death, then they give the ears to the hero and parade him through the streets.
It is an insight into Mexico culture that showed a huge gulf between them and the WASPs of America.
Before the feminist movement, Americans used the word masculine to describe male behavior it was positive, quiet strength, protective of the weak, respectful of women (like Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne), machismo described what was seen as the unmanly, over compensating, overtly masculine behavior of Latin and non-Latin males from cultures where the men seemed to try too hard and always had to be cruel and dominate, especially to females, for more than 40 years though, “macho” has been used against American males, “masculine” has almost disappeared from use.
Bull fighting is the kind of thing that a cowboy who has been branding and butchering cows all day would ask, “why don’t you just kill the thing or leave him alone, why torture the darn thing in a sporting arena and sell tickets”?
Later Thursday sheriff’s and animal control officials served a search warrant on a home near the site of the attack and took away eight dogs, six of them pit bulls and two of them of mixed breeds, the Sheriff’s Department said in a Statement.
Investigators were trying to determine whether the dogs were involved in the attack.
A 29-year-old man from the house was arrested on suspicion of cultivating marijuana.

Eloquently put which is why I have never seen a bullfight. I went to a cockfight but there was this señorita that caught my eye and while everyone else went in she and I sat outside and talked the whole time. I never made it inside and I never regretted it.
So, what is it the gays do with pitbulls, and if that's what it is, why are the hispanics into that sort of thing as well?
