An elderly woman is lucky to be alive after she was brutally attacked by two relentless pit bulls on Tuesday afternoon.
Witnesses say that the dogs were beaten with a pipe and an automobile anti-theft device similar to The Club in an attempt to stop the attack. One man even tried to hit them with his car, but it wasnt until the dogs were shot that they finally stopped mauling the woman.
The incident happened in Detroits east side, about 7 miles away from downtown, where 64-year-old Jessie Clarke was sitting on her front porch when the dogs unexpectedly attacked her.
Family, neighbors and even passerbys tried everything to help the woman, but it was of no avail until Tyrone Gray, an off duty police officer who just happened to be passing by, stopped to help. He pulled out his revolver and shot the two dogs, a total of five times, finally stopping the attack. At which point Clarke had already suffered severe injuries to her face, head and arms.
One dog died at the scene, while the other dog, which was bleeding profusely by what was believed to be a shot in the head, ran off into a nearby school building. That dog was later captured by authorities and is still alive, reported Michigan Live.
Neighbors said that the dogs lived in a nearby abandoned middle school thats currently undergoing renovations. And apparently this isnt the first incident with these dogs. Residents said that the dogs are often found wandering through the streets and have even chased some of the neighbors before.

Oh crud. I’m in trouble...
In before “It’s not the breed...”
It’s at the bottom of the story.
They were such nice dogs, this is totally unexpected. /s
It’s not the breed; it’s sudden jihad syndrome. It is common in all Amish dogs. /sar
I’m glad she survived but this is yet another reason we should all be allowed to carry 24/7 with no questions asked.
I have a fenced yard for my dogs so they can’t get out but other things, such as rabid coons can still get in.
There’s a gun by the back door just for that.
I *never* walk around the mountain empty handed.
Do they know who owned the dogs?
[I’m hoping somebody checks out the ‘dropped off dogs’ story *and* tests the other dogs for rabies]
Yes, they were turning their lives around, and the one even went back to school...
This is precisely why George Zimmerman bought his little Kel-tech: to protect him and his wife when they went out for walks and had to ward off unruly dogs roaming the neighborhood. He wanted to use pepper spray, but a cop friend told him not to waste his time and to get a gun....the rest is history. Will leave the punchline for someone else.
That might explain part of it.
A gun is good for warding off all kinds of vicious varmint attacks.
Since I live in the Freak State, I take the dog along, instead.
Unless you bring along some onions and a hibachi, I don’t see the point.
The construction worker claimed “These are not the dogs you are looking for”.
Something reeks in Detroit.
Sorry it’s not the breed, look at American history the pit bull, in all its’ forms was the American family dog of 20’s,30’s’ 40’s. What people are doing is the same thing we rail against when they blame guns! Yes there are damaged animals out there that need to be put down, just like damaged people that murder. But don’t criminalize an entire breed because of what some people do o a small segment of the animals. Look at where this happened, the kind of people there, that’s were the blame lies. And now another innocent is mauled because of what some moron did to a couple of animals and the animals will pay not the master.
There is no video showing up for me, not sure why.
Obviously, from the story, nobody owned the dogs; they were abandoned, feral, and probably starving.
I hate them, but my big dogs love them-for lunch, dinner or supper. Had two a couple years ago attacking our sheep until our 2 Giant great Pyrenees got hold of them. It was over in a flash, pit bulls no more.
