4 kids sicced pit bull on women in SeaTac, cops say

Four children between the ages of 11 and 15 used a pit bull to attack two women in SeaTac on Sunday evening after one of the victims questioned the group's treatment of the dog, according to the King County Sheriff's Office.
The girl, who is from Burien, and the boys ages 11, 12 and 13 all from White Center, were taken into custody by sheriff's deputies. All four were released to their parents and the dog was seized by King County Animal Control, said county sheriff's spokesman John Urquhart.
A 63-year-old Seattle woman was driving in the 13300 block of Des Moines Memorial Drive when she saw the group of three boys and a girl repeatedly kicking the dog at about 6:30 p.m., according to Urquhart. She asked the children if they might need some help, but a 15-year-old girl told her to mind her own business.
The woman told KING-TV the girl opened the passenger door of her car and attacked her.
"She grabbed me by the hair. She pulled me across the passenger seat by the hair," said the woman, who has asked not to be identified.
The woman said she tried to run away but that the girl kept chasing her and hitting her. Then, one of the boys allegedly ran toward her with the pit bull, which belongs to the girl's family.
"The dog started biting me on my wrist and my left leg," the woman told KING-TV.
It was not clear whether the woman required treatment at a hospital.
Urquhart said the group was abusing the dog, named Snaps, to intentionally make it violent when the first victim intervened.

Pit Bull and savages ping.
You’re being too kind! Really disturbing, crap like this. She was trying to help the dog. Their parents probably aren’t much better.
How about a Pitbull and Savages with even worse than savage parents ping?
See that I am a Democrat and I united us all.
Do i need the /sarc?
The children should be tested to determine if they are psychopaths. Yes, a person can be a psychopath that young.
Sounds like the poor old lady interrupted some ACORN canvasing.
Not so much dog, more kids.
Shouldn’t chet99 be posting this instead?
“Urquhart said the group was abusing the dog, named Snaps, to intentionally make it violent when the first victim intervened.”
Oh, I see. chet 99 wouldn’t post an article that blamed the pit bull’s owners instead of the breed.
She wanted to help them kick the dog?
Actually, I think Chet99 posted this already.
If I was in an auto, and some little *itch opened the door, she would be jogging about 10 seconds later.
