An outrageous story from Warren Ohio. On Monday September 2, 2013 a pit bull attacked a deaf 78 year old woman's Yorkshire Terrier. Per WKBN27 " Reports say the pit bull belonged to a neighbor’s son and mauled the terrier at about 10:30 a.m. Monday in the 3000 block of Bon Air Street N.W., causing severe injuries. The terrier suffered crushed ribs and spine damage and was taken to a veterinarian, reports say."
Here is where the story goes into WTH territory. This was the THIRD attack by the SAME pit bull on the SAME little dog! How terrifying for an elderly, deaf woman to live next door to this and have no warning when it is coming. The next door neighbor confirms that the pit bull has indeed attacked the Yorkie in the past. The next door neighbor asked Warren dog warden John Onatz to remove the dog from the home "due to its vicious nature."
Will someone please explain just how it is, in the land where breed specific advocacy was allowed to re-write state law to " finally give dog wardens the tools to deal with vicious dogs" that the same pit bull attacks the same tiny dog owned by an elderly deaf woman and the dog warden has to be ASKED to remove the damn dog?
