Whose Got Your WeinerYonkers, NY – A pit bull has been euthanized after it attacked a 5-year-old boy earlier this month inside an apartment in Yonkers, and bit off his penis.

On the morning of Nov 10, the boy was visiting his grandmother, Melissa Pettiford, and asked if he could play a video game. After she refused, the boy wandered into the bedroom of his 13-year-old aunt, who was sleeping in the bed with a 6-year-old pit bull named “Momma”.

When the boy tried crawling in the bed with his aunt, the dog began attacking him. By time the dog was pulled off the boy, the boy had suffered severe bite wounds, lacerations and was missing a penis.

The boy was rushed to the hospital along with his detached penis, which had been placed on ice. He’s been there for the last two weeks and his mother, who is not being named, told reporters that her son was doing fine. No word on whether they were able to re-attach the boy’s penis.

The boy’s grandmother said that the dog has never been aggressive before and that family members have always felt comfortable around the dog.…

pit bullWILTON, CT – A 56-year-old woman is the hospital after her pit bull attacked and proceeded to entirely remove one of her arms and partially remove the other. She was rescued by passing motorists who heard her screaming for help from underneath her car.

Anne Murray is in stable condition despite losing one arm, a portion of her other arm below the elbow, and bites from her legs up to the side of her head. She can thank two Good Samaritans for her life, as they were the ones who stopped because they saw the pit bull wandering in the road.

Thinking they were helping the dog, the first motorist who stopped to help corral the dog back in its yard got back inside her car when the dog began acting aggressive towards her. A second motorist who had stopped to help heard screams for help coming from underneath a car in the home’s driveway, and called 911 for help.

The arriving police officer witnessed Murray under the car trying to fend off the dog – a two-year-old male named Tuxedo.…

Kathryn AtkinsKERNERSVILLE, NC – A 25-year-old woman was mauled to death by her boyfriend’s two pit bulls while trying to feed them.

According to the sheriff’s office, Katherine Atkins was feeding the dogs in an outdoor enclosure because her boyfriend, Albert Jacobs, was running late for work. Jacobs’ roommate called police after he found Atkins lying dead in the backyard near the dogs’ enclosure while the dogs ran loose.

No one knows why the dogs attacked the woman, especially since Atkins regularly fed the dogs and the couple had raised them since they were puppies. Investigators said there is “no history of problems or aggression” with the dogs.

Animal control took both dogs into custody and euthanized them. A necropsy will be performed to determine if a medical condition may have caused them to turn on Atkins. However, Forsyth County Animal Control Director Tim Jennings say they may never know why the male and female pit bulls attacked Atkins.

“People always need to remember their DNA is programmed to be aggressive,” said Jennings.…

Terry DouglassBALTIMORE, MD – A woman who fought to have her pit bull returned after an attack last year, was mauled to death by that same pit bull after she fell out of her wheelchair.

According to reports, 56-year-old Terry Douglass suffered from cerebral palsy and has used a wheelchair for the last two years. On Friday, she fell out of her wheelchair while reaching for a glass of water. While on the ground, her 4-year-old pit bull “Boosie” attacked her and, according to Douglass’ daughter, “ripped her apart.”

Family members say Douglass was never known as a dog lover, but quickly grew attached to Boosie, a dog Douglass initially bought for protection. “My mom had gotten to a point in her life when she felt like her kids didn’t need her any more, and she latched onto this dog,” said Douglass’ daughter, Tamathia Davis.

Davis said that two years ago, Boosie bit Douglass’ face so bad that “whenever my mom would open her mouth, her cheek would open with it.” But Douglas defended the dog and refused to get rid of it. …

Samuel ZamudioColton, CA – A 2-year-old boy had his face eaten off by his grandmother’s pit bulls and now she and the boy’s uncle have been charged with his death.

After police received a 911 call around 5:30 p.m. that someone had been killed by a dog, they arrived at a home on the 700 block of West Citrus Street to find 2-year-old Samuel Zamudio suffering from extensive bite wounds to his head and neck. He was rushed to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

“It was ugly. His face was all eaten up. He was eaten from the face. He had no clothes,” said a woman who rents a room inside the home.

The woman said she and the Zamudio’s uncle, 23-year-old Marco Zamudio, were watching the boy, his older brother and her two children when he suddenly <air quotes>disappeared</air quotes>. She said they looked for him for about 20 minutes before looking in the backyard and finding his grandmother’s dogs had used him as a chew toy.

“He jumped out of the window, I’m guessing to play with the dogs, and the dogs grabbed him,” said a neighbor. …

Toddler Mauled To Death By Three Pit Bulls

September 23, 2013 at 4:25 pm by  

pit bullGILBERT, AZ – Been awhile since we had a pit bull story, but a 2-year old boy was mauled to death at his babysitter’s home after he got in the middle of three fighting pit bull mixes.

The special needs toddler and his four siblings, two 9-year-old boys, and two girls, ages 6 and 7, were being cared for at the babysitter’s house Sunday morning when three adult pit bulls began fighting. The dogs began attacking the toddler when he somehow got in the middle of the melee.

The 28-year-old babysitter tried to get the dogs off the boy, but was also attacked and suffered bites to her arms and legs. The toddler was later declared dead at the hospital while the babysitter underwent surgery for her injuries. She’s currently listed in stable condition. No one else was injured.

Police say the babysitter could face charges, but only if it turns out the boy’s death was anything but an accident. Gilbert police detectives were waiting on warrants to enter the sitter’s home Sunday afternoon.…

Anthony Donnell RuffHouston, TX– A two year-old toddler had half his face eaten by a pit bull mix as he played outside an apartment complex in southwest Houston, and now the dog’s owner is facing possible jail time.

On August 27th, 22- year-old Anthony Ruff asked his 8-year-old stepson to take the dog out to use the bathroom in the apartment’s common area without a leash. After the dog did its business, it decided to partake in a pit bull’s favorite snack – a small child.

The dog didn’t have to look far as there were children out playing and it wasn’t long before it was enjoying a 2-year-old boy’s face. Ruff’s stepson was unable to do anything but watch as the dog laughed maniacally and took another bite from the tasty morsel.

The victim’s mother was alerted by her 4-year-old son who’d ran inside screaming that his little brother was dead. Mom immediately ran outside to find that wasn’t entirely true, but the boy was bleeding motionless on the ground with the dog standing nearby with blood on its mouth.…

Conner and NoahNew Brunswick, Canada — The owner of the snake that killed two sleeping boys earlier this week may be facing manslaughter charges.

Police were called to a home at 6:30 a.m. on Monday morning where an African Rock Python had killed 5-year-old Connor Barthe and his 7-year-old brother, Noah.

Connor and Noah were sleeping over with a friend in the home of snake owner Jean-Claude Savoie, in an apartment above the Reptile Ocean pet store. The snake measured between 11 and 15 feet long and weighed almost 100 pounds. It was initially being reported that the snake had escaped an enclosure in the pet store, but police later revealed the snake was kept in the same apartment the boys were sleeping in a specially built enclosure.

Regardless, then snake climbed into the ceiling, making its way into the ventilation system of the building and into the living room ceiling where the brothers were sleeping. Because of its weight, the snake reportedly fell through the ceiling and landed on the mattress where Conner and and Noah were sleeping, strangling them both at the same time.…

Paralyzed Man Loses Ball To Newly Adopted Dog

July 30, 2013 at 8:39 pm by  

fucking ball-eaterTrumann, AR – A paralyzed man in Arkansas woke up the other day to find that the dog he’d adopted had just eaten one of his testicles.

The unidentified 39-year-old is paralyzed from the waist down and had adopted a “small white fluffy” stray he had taken in about three weeks earlier. The man told police he often sleeps in the nude and woke up Monday morning by a “burning pain” in his mid-section.

He looked down and noticed the dog was between his legs with blood on its face and paws. To his horror, he realized that the little bastard had “eaten one of his testicles.”

The poor guy was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries, while the dog was euthanized. The dog’s head was sent to the Arkansas Department of Health to be tested for rabies.

Lord knows we’ve had a slew of stories regarding injured testicles on this site – psychotic women like to chew them off or rip them off with their bare hands. …

Scott HammondTahmoor, AU – A man who used his pit bulls to attack four people in 2011 was found beaten to death in his home Monday afternoon.

Scott Hammond was found dead on his living room floor after a friend called police concerned about his welfare. While the exact cause of death is not known, police say the 48-year-old suffered “substantial” head injuries.

Homicide detectives are treating his death as a targeted attack and have many motives to sift through. The suspect list is long as Hammond was well known by police and feared by many locals, who say the man had enemies.

“It appears that the incident was a targeted attack and we have other motives that have to be looked at,” Acting Superintendent Danny Doherty said. “There are a number of lines of inquiry including the man’s history in relation to previous dog attacks.”

These previous dog attacks involved Hammond instructing his two dogs, Chocka and Girlie, to attack people. In 2011, Hammond instructed the dogs to attack a 16-year-old and his friend as they were walking along a street.…

bullmastiffJESSIEVILLE, AR — A five-year-old boy from Oklahoma was killed in Arkansas Sunday after he was attacked by a family friend’s Bullmastiff.

The boy and his 2-year-old sister were staying with 50-year-old Lynn Geiling and her husband while their family rebuilt their home destroyed by the deadly tornado that swept through Moore, Oklahoma last month.

The siblings had been staying with the couple for about two weeks when the couple’s Bullmastiff attacked the boy as he was putting on his shoes and, according to Geiling, throwing a tantrum.

“The child was putting on some shoes and was crying and upset,” said Garland County Deputy Scott Hinojosa. “The dog possibly took that as being aggressive and at that time the child was attacked.”

Geiling told police she tried to pull the dog off the boy, but by time she did the boy had already suffered “major lacerations” to his head and neck. He was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital in Hot Springs.

The dog ran away after attacking the boy, and animal control were still searching for it late Sunday night to have it euthanized.…

happy pitCALEDONIA, WI – Before any of you start thinking this is another “pit bulls are evil” stories, I wrote this one up because it’s a story that seems to be incompetent dog ownership that led to a 15-month-old getting bit in the face by a pit bull.

On June 5th, police responded to a home where a child had been bitten in the face by the family’s pit bull. According to reports, the child had been sitting on the kitchen floor eating a cookie when the pit bull, named Mary Jane, presumably bit the child while trying to get the cookie from the child’s mouth.

The child had to be taken to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin suffering from severe facial tears, puncture wounds and missing teeth. Of course this could have happened to anyone with an animal in the home with young children, but it’s the other details being reported that make this incident so rage inducing and avoidable.

“This particular animal the family took in and they knew it had been abused in the past so they had taken this dog in and they told us that the dog is not friendly towards children,” said Lt.…
