SUFFOLK, Va. A man allegedly shot a pit bull while trying to help a woman who was attacked by the dog Wednesday around 12 p.m.
The woman was in the 100 block of Chestnut Street when the dog reportedly latched onto her hand and would not let go. This is when the man, in an attempt to help the woman, shot the pit bull killing it, according to Suffolk Police.
The woman was able to drive to the hospital for treatment. She has already been released from medical care.
Police tell News 3 the incident remains under investigation.
was the dog white or black? was the shooter white or black? that’s all the authorities need to know.
Just behind and below the front shoulder as seen here.
From the page:
I’ll try to find better anatomy diagrams.
He may have saved the woman’s life. I read in another news article about a woman out for a jog, who was killed by two pit bulls.
Little correction. Just behind the front shoulder as seen here (just behind the joint at the top of the humerous, which is number 8 as seen in the diagram).
Too bad. I just saw his interview on objectified. ;->
We'll never know now.
About time. All pit bulls should be put down. Shot if necessary. And BEFORE, not during or after they main or kill someone.
Ping. Someone recently asked about knife defense, perhaps where laws make concealed carry more difficult? Here’s a sketchy start.
If you can’t carry a knife with a longer blade concealed, you’ll need something with a blade like a short version of an FS knife (Fairbrairn-Sykes knife, as used by commandos, French Partisans, etc., in World War 2).
A longer blade of around 7 inches is better, of course, but only where and when either concealed or open carry of such a blade is legal and won’t get you in trouble. Check state and local laws and ordinances.
We’ll assume that you’re obtaining or getting a knife with a short blade of a little under 4 inches or whatever is legal in a short blade. If you can find it or make it, the knife needs to have a *very strong and virtually unbreakable*, double edged, symmetrical blade that comes to a point.
Possible targets with a short blade that I guessing about so far would be carotid arteries, a forward part of the spine or skull just behind the eyes (yes, very hard targets). We need a better anatomy diagram—something showing the cardio-vascular system and nervous system. Still looking. There are highly likely more good targets and/or better targets.
Consider this to be unfinished and no more than a few ideas for now. Need those anatomy diagrams.
The woman was in the 100 block of Chestnut Street when the dog latched onto her hand and would not let go.
Amen to that!
Definitely the best place to hit a cat.
Head shots are *so* tricky.
“Front shoulders, center of chest sounds about right for a dog.”
Looks like you were right on target with that. Here’s a dog circulatory system diagram for everyone who’s interested.
...will continue looking.
Another situation occurred a few days ago in which the pit bull latched onto a man’s hand while he was holding a pizza in that hand (boyfriend of the dog’s owner) and he was able to drag himself and the dog to his firearm box, open it with his free hand, take it out of the box, and fire upon the dog.
It is well that the man with the firearm was available to help defend this woman. I am glad she was not harmed further. He was obviously ready, willing, and able to help. Preparation is the key, as always.
Here’s another good page with various anatomical diagrams including heart and circulatory, lungs, nervous system and more.
Agreed on preparation. Well said.

It looks like the spine would be a very difficult target because of likely movement, depth of target and small size of target.
Middle of the chest may be much a better target area than the spine, either from the front or underside. A knife might require a fairly hard punch to make it through bone.
