Ryan Moody was rushed to the hospital suffering from bite wounds to his face and head, then airlifted to another hospital in Little Rock for surgery. According to his mother, Amber Moody, their nine-month-old pit bull attacked Ryan in the front yard.
Police have since learned that Amber adopted the pit bull from the Humane Society last March. I didn’t know this, but the Humane Society normally doesn’t adopt out pit bulls to families with young children.
Amber was able to get around this technicality by simply putting, “none”‘ in the section of the adoption form asking for the number of children in her home. But some chick at the Humane Society wants to remind everyone that it’s not the breed as any breed of dog poses a threat to young children.
“If a dog is sleeping and the child goes and jumps on it, it doesn’t even know who jumped on it. It’s first reaction is to turn around and snap,” said Margaret Shepherd, the Executive Director of the Humane Society.
Balderdash and piffle, I say. That pit bull attacked the boy because the boy was alive.
Police are still investigating the attack, and if any charges will be filed against his mother.Tags: Amber Moody, Arkansas, Crime, mauling, pit bull, Ryan Moody, When Animals Attack
