Mom bites off dog’s ear to save 2-year-old daughter during attack

ALVIN, TX – A two-year-old can make the case that her mom is a real superhero. Chelsi Camp took on a pit bull to save her daughter, and won.

It was the end of March and Chelsi was dog-sitting a friend’s Pit Bull who was friendly until he met her daughter Mackenzi.

“The dog came up and he was just curious and when he smelled her that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her.” said mother Chelsi Camp.

The dog attacked the little girl, so Chelsi was forced to fight. Shoving her fist into the dog’s mouth and even biting off its ear. All while telling her daughter to turn over so she didn’t choke on blood.

“I only know to fight so how else do you get somebody to stop I mean I would do the same thing with a human being.” said Chelsi Camp.

Chelsi has bite marks up her arms. It took a while but she now has full use of them again.

I have trained big bitey dogs to knock it off by grabbing them by the collar and saying “eat this” before sticking my fist down their gullet.
Yer gonna yet some wounds but they will be all “Gack Gack Gack! I don’t want any of this!”

A friend of the family was walking up to a porch on a service call when a German shepard jumped off at him. He reflexively thrust his arm out and ended up with his fist in the dog’s throat. You’re right. Dogs don’t want any part of that.

I stuck my large arm down my Rottweiler’s mouth some years ago. It went in up to the elbow. I got what I went in for, and everything was OK. It took a long time to clean up. Very much goo down there.

I have wondered if grabbing a dogs balls to get it to stop an attack would work....you can literally tear off the testicle's or smash them.

Easiest way to get a pit to let go is to pick it up by the tail. They kind of freak out.

Sticking an arm down in there is interesting, on less aggressive dogs & pups I have found that biting their ears just hard enough for them to feel it works for training.

They hate it, and if you control the neck AND mouth, they are pretty helpless.
They will use the rest of their bodies to buck you off.
Use yours to ride them.
They will submit.

Tarzan used to make lions stop biting by forcing a finger into the loose skin at the junction of the jawbone, thus forcing the skin back into the lion’s teeth and in effect forcing it to bite itself and open its mouth and lose its grip - well, it worked in the movies and with my rambunctious pooch.....

Personally.....you gotta be dumber than dirt, to dog sit any pit bull to begin with, in your house and with your 2 year old toddler daughter walking throughout the house.

Another candidate for the Darwin award!

I always carry a 4” folder (Benchmade griptilian is the flavor of the month). If that was my kid (or any other kid for that matter) that dog would have been eviscerated for starters.

I recall many decades ago when I lived at home hearing some barking and my mom yelling and through our window I saw this huge black dog in our driveway barking a few feet from our Male cat, who was standing his ground but obviously nervous.

Some very fast thinking reaction that I am still impressed with I grabbed a huge boot and ran out and nailed him with it and he ran like hell after yelping.

It was a very quick reaction with little thinking that worked out perfectly that I dont do very often.

LOL yep, that it would, but it would have to let go of the person it was mauling, of course you have to be ready to shove your fist down its throat as it turned on you...

Like ALL pittbulls it was friendly until the pit bull time bomb went off.

Any parent that leaves a two year old in the same room with a pit bull should have their child taken away from them.

It’s not just pit bulls. All dogs can react badly to babies.

My friend had to give his beloved Schnauzer away because it was growling & snapping at the new born baby. This was a friendly dog that I had been around several times with zero problems. The dog was jealous or afraid or confused, or whatever.

I would not allow my baby around any dog without me staying between the two.

Yes, that’s true—but that applies 10x with someone’s male pitbull that is being petsat.

I think it is imprudent to overemphasize the dangers of pit bulls, leaving ignorant people to think other dogs are much safer around babies. Even a Chihuahua can quickly kill a baby.

It sounds like the woman brought the baby to the dog’s house, an invasion of territory. Any dog will defend his territory against a loud, annoying, irrational acting “invader”.

No, tearing the dog apart is awesome. You never know when some random lower life form may attack for no reason.

The vast majority of maiming and death by dogs comes from pit bulls and their ilk. Clearly, the message about pit bulls needs to get out better than it has, though, yes, caution with other breeds is also in order.

And I don’t know, have any babies died from chihuahua attacks?

I think when you’re petsitting someone’s male pitbull, there’s more than the usual reason for caution—which would have saved this little girl an incredible trauma.

Boldness and braveness borne of interacting with pitbulls is the mark of someone with inadequate manhood and a poor sense of purpose or accomplishment.

Good on Mom for using her head to save her daughter but sad that she exposed her daughter to the menace pit in the first place.

I must now go find my old copy of, 'The World According to Garp'. This headline evoked the memory of 'Bonkie bit Garp' .

As a matter of degree it is just pit bulls. It is not just a matter of all dogs behave badly. That completely understates the problem with pit bulls.

Go to any animal shelter and get the stats on which dog is put down the most because it is not suitable to be given to a family. Fifty percent are pitbulls .
