BAKERSFIELD, Ca. - Kern Animal Control, Kern County Fire and Kern County Sheriff's Department officials responded Wednesday morning to a home in northwest Bakersfield after 911 received a call about a woman being attacked by a pit bull. Ryan Dunbier, Senior Deputy with the KCSO, said two women, ages 21 and 22, were at home when one of the women began having a seizure.
The dog is owned by one of the women and her boyfriend. He told 23ABC that his significant other was attempting to help the woman having a seizure when the dog attacked, thinking the two were fighting.
The woman helping the seizure victim was able to get the dog off and put it in another room, according to the owner. She reportedly broke her arm in the process. The owner told reporters that the seizure victim was in a daze after the seizure subsided and unknowingly opened the door to the room that was housing the dog. She was then attacked for the second time.
Both women were taken to Kern Medical Center to treat severe lacerations to their arms.
Animal control took custody of the pit bull as well as two other dogs.
According to the victim, the pit bull was not friendly and had attacked her in the past. The owner said he never had a problem with the dog and it have always been around children. He confirmed that the dog will be euthanized but is hoping to regain custody of the other two as they were not in the house during the attack.

Really? I blame the owner for choosing to own a breed of dog known to kill and maim, keeping his dog after it has bitten people and bringing his dog into contact with people again instead of penning it up.
The problem is not that the breed is known to kill and maim. Any dog of sufficient size can do that. The problem is that the culture that has adopted the two breeds as status symbols not only does not care about aggression in their animals - they actually look for it. Responsible breeders will not breed animals who show signs of aggression so as to eliminate these characteristics.
Breed for violence and aggression and you’ll get it.
How much you want to bet the previous biting experience was explained away (the dog didn’t understand...) the way pit defenders will try to explain away this attack (the dog didn’t understand...) Is it safe to keep a dog that a)can’t get through a medical emergency among people without attacking and b) attacks its owner? It did say both women were attacked and sought treatment for their wounds. Just what did the owner do that the dog “didn’t understand?” He was in a ‘roid rage and wouldn’t allow its owner to stop him from attacking someone?
Be sure to post the follow-up story when one of the kids get killed next.
I think that the history of the dogs bred to fight and kill is a problem when people then take pit fighting dogs into the home as pets.
Heres dog whisperer Ceasar Milans comment on the fighting breeds compared with the rest of the dog population:
Yeah, but this is a different breed...the power that comes behind bull dog, pit bull, presa canario, the fighting breed - They have an extra boost, they can go into a zone, they dont feel the pain anymore. He is using the bulldog in him, which is way too powerful, so we have to make him dog (I guess as in a regular dog) so we can actually create the limits. So if you are trying to create submission in a fighting breed, its not going to happen. They would rather die than surrender.. If you add pain, it only infuriates them..to them pain is that adrenaline rush, they are looking forward to that, they are addicted to it... Thats why they are such great fighters.
Cesar goes on to say...Especially with fighting breeds, youre going to have these explosions over and over because theres no limits in their brain.
It is in several locations around the web, I randomly chose this one.
I just noticed “the owner said he never had a problem” but the woman attacked said the dog had bitten her before. So to the owner, his dog biting that woman was never a problem.
I love pit bulls. However, if one is a biter then it has to go bye bye.
Thanks for the quote.
Herding dogs were bred to herd. They’ll herd small children or ducklngs if they can’t get sheep.
Retrieving dogs will retrieve. They’ll find something.
Fighting dogs were bred to fight and kill, yet somehow many assume that this instinct is not as deeply embedded as are the behaviors of the other working breeds.
We used to have a Rotty, which isn’t even exactly a fighting breed, and she was the sweetest thing in the world. But the couple of times she got the impression that some member of her “pack” was threatened, she became a different animal. One less then completely welcome guest barely made it out the door before she would have started disassembling him
People do the same things with wolves. Putting a studded collar on a wolf and calling it “Fido” doesn’t turn it into a suitable pet.
I can tell this story because my beloved brother passed away some years ago. He was serving papers on a drug dealer and was attacked by the drug dealers pit bull. He got away from the dog and drove to the hospital with his hand holding pressure against his femoral artery that had been damaged.
A few weeks later he went back and called the druggie on the phone and told him in no uncertain words what he thought about him and his dog. When the druggie came outside he had the pleasure of watching his dogs head explode from a 130 grain slug at 3200 feet per second.
The druggie got the message loud and clear.
That’s why I roll my eyes when pit defenders claim to be dog lovers and more compassionate than the rest of us for “understanding” a “misunderstood” breed etc. Some claim to be “freedom fighters” for our rights etc. It’s all sociopathic lies.
The drug dealer used the dog as a weapon and an “expendable” body double for himself in threatening others with the expectation that only his dog will receive any potential retaliation.
Pit nutters are so vocal “defending” the breed as “perfect” service animals and “babysitters” and dress them in bonnets with a baby pacifier on a bib around their neck (that one creeps me out, it’s like the dog ate the baby and assumed its disguise) but they completely ignore just how many of these dogs are give up to shelters because they just aren’t pets. The “compassionate” pit nutters put these dogs in the line of fire (aggression or retaliation) or in shelters awaiting euthanasia while screaming that the rest of us are uncaring.
A dog who has ever been a fighting dog, shown a predisposition towards violence, significant aggression towards people or other dogs, or is otherwise unsuitable for being a pet simply should not be a pet. If an animal has been bred this way, then they have a much greater likelihood of being violent that an animal that hasn’t. The breed doesn’t matter.
It’s honestly not that much different from keeping a wild animal as a pet. Wolves wouldn’t make great pets either.
There are two problems with pits. Firstly, they have been breed to be vicious attackers. Secondly, many of the owners want a mean vicious dog and they themselves are mean and vicious.
A pit is like a hand grenade with a loose pin.
