    Pit bulls have never had the best reputation in Montreal, or really in any other city. Especially over the last couple years there's been a lot of back and forth on whether or not a pit bull ban will be enforced in the city. After Valerie Plante was elected mayor, dog owners thought the fight was over as the pit bull ban was revoked. But, for the last few months Bill 128 has still been in talks, and it doesn't look good for the dogs. Despite the bad rep, there are still a few places in and around Montreal that...

    FAIRFIELD (CBS SF) — A 29-year-old Fairfield woman was severely mauled in her backyard by her own dog early Thursday before police shot it dead, authorities said. Fairfield police said the attack took place in the woman’s backyard in the 1600 block of Kentucky St. A next-door neighbor called 911 to report they had heard the woman screaming and looked over the fence and saw a large dog attacking her.

    DEARBORN, Mich. - A pit bull attacked its owner in Dearborn as a horrified Animal Control officer looked on, according to officials. The incident happened after neighbors complained about the dog and an Animal Control officer was sent to the owner's home. Signs at the front of the home give a fair warning of what to expect, and neighbors said trouble with the owner's dogs is not a surprise. "I hate to say it, but it's been building up," neighbor Lela Warren said. "These dogs have gotten out several times. The neighbor right here's had that dog in his backyard,...

    Holly Mckenzie considered her family’s two pit bull dogs her “best friends,” having made memories over the past three years of walking them, playing with them, cuddling them and even sleeping in the same bed together. On Sunday though, Mckenzie said it was like a switch went off in the normally “cuddly, sweet” dogs. The Norwalk woman said one minute she was petting them and the next she was fighting for her life as they literally tried to rip her apart.

    ARDMORE, Oklahoma––Killed by a pit bull and a pack of pit mixes on the evening of May 10, 2018, Tracy Janine Garcia, 52, had by May 16, 2018 passed into legend via “hot-dogging” and flagrantly inaccurate tabloid headlines as the purported victim of an attack by dachshunds. Though the circumstances of the fatal attack near Ardmore, in rural Carter County, Oklahoma, are still unclear, Garcia was mauled outside her home by seven allegedly neglected and mostly pit dogs belonging to an unidentified neighbor, with little trace of any dachshund ancestry evident among them.

    GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The woman who owns two pit bulls that attacked and killed a 75-year-old woman Wednesday in Gulfport has been arrested. Police say Emily Craft, 32, was arrested on a warrant for misdemeanor dog-at-large and vicious animal charges. Police say those charges stem from a July 2017 incident where Craft's two pit bulls entered someone else's yard and attacked that person's golden retriever. Officers were at the home on Deidra Court investigating the death of a 75-year old woman who was attacked by the same two pit bulls just before 8 a.m. Wednesday. The victim has not...
