Disgusting – Plainfield Residents Protest Dogs’ Return Home After Violent Attack ( 6 rottweilers )

Family and friends of a home health-care worker mauled by dogs while on the job in Plainfield last December are protesting the town’s decision to return four of the dogs to their owners.
In the eight months since, Lynne Denning has undergone more than a dozen surgeries and is taking legal action against the town.

Plainfield officials returned four of the six dogs in question to their owners last week. Denning’s supporters say the decision violates her rights – and the law – since the state Department of Agriculture has not held a hearing on the case.
“(It’s) heart wrenching because you don’t want something to happen to somebody else,” said Denning’s daughter, Bridgett Labrecque. “You know, this is tragic enough, and I think it needed to end here and not go any further.”

Protesters gathered at Plainfield Town Hall for Monday night’s board of selectman meeting and vented their frustrations.
“The dogs literally tore Lynne’s face off and ripped chunks of her body off all over her entire body,” said Liz Marsden of Connecticut Residents Opposing Unsafe Dogs. “This is not a little garden variety bite.”

First Selectman Paul Sweet addressed the crowd at Monday’s meeting, limiting public comment on the decision to send the dogs home. He pointed out that the town sought legal advice before releasing the dogs and said the owners agreed to unspecified stipulations.
“If the state Department of Agriculture would have had this hearing sooner, most likely these four dogs would have been released a lot sooner,” Sweet said. “Because this has been going on with the sideshow with the state, we’re in the position that we’re in, but what we’re doing, we believe is 100 percent lawful.”

Officials with the Department of Agriculture declined to comment Monday, only saying they’re finalizing a hearing date.
“We cannot comment on this case because we are the adjudicating agency in the appeal of the order,” said department spokesman Ray Connors.

25 year old pit bull advocated killed by own pitbull

A Spartanburg woman who was killed by a pit bull had been attempting to rescue her mother from the attacking dog, authorities say.

Porsche Nicole Cartee was pronounced dead inside her home when emergency responders arrived Saturday.

Spike, which has since been euthanized, had been the Cartee family’s pet for more than a decade.

Authorities say the pit bull “just snapped” when it began attacking the mother. Cartee’s sister was also injured. Her mother was hospitalized and her injuries may require surgery, while Cartee’s sister received treatment on scene, said Jamie Nelson, the director of Spartanburg County’s Office of Environmental Enforcement.

Those close to the 25-year-old described her as selfless.

Patrick Powell, Cartee’s boyfriend of nearly 10 years, said the two had just separated about a month ago but were planning on getting back together.

The family’s pit bull had caused problems before, Powell said by phone Sunday.

A previous attack left the mother hospitalized, but the incident was never reported to authorities, Powell said.

No other case involving Spike had been reported, Nelson confirmed. The environmental enforcement office is continuing to look at records from previous addresses to ensure there were no prior cases, he added.

An autopsy is being performed on the dog to determine if it had rabies, he said.

“The biggest thing apart from it being a fatality is that it was three victims at one time, and it was a family pet,” Nelson said. “It’s just a huge tragedy here for this family.”

All pitbull owners should have their first born children killed

Brooksville – Little Declin Moss loved to play outdoors. At just 18-months-old, he frolicked around the yard and enjoyed being outside in his rural Brooksville neighborhood.

That’s where the toddler was Monday morning alongside the family dogs, Max and Thumper. Neighbors tell 8 On Your Side the pets were pit bulls, and that all of a sudden, Declin was in danger.

Charles Shorey cried as he described the toddler, “He was a beautiful kid. I feel sorry for the mother. She’s, she’s fighting and struggling.”

The toddler’s grandfather ran outside and witnessed a horrifying sight around 11 a.m. – two snarling, barking dogs mauling his grandson.

The dogs wouldn’t let go of each other or the baby.

The grandfather called 911, but it was too late. Little Declin was gone.

“I’m going to let her know that I’m here for her, if she needs anything,” said Shorey, wiping away tears.

Shorey admits that while the dogs never hurt any children or adults, the pets were dangerous to other animals. In fact, he told News Channel 8 that Max and Thumper have killed smaller dogs in the past.

“It is a terrible, terrible event today. Obviously, even those of us who work with death and dying and serious injury, the firefighters on scene were heartbroken,” said Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis.

We asked the Sheriff if deputies had ever been called out to the address before for a dangerous dog complaint. The answer was no. Detectives are doing a thorough investigation to determine if criminal charges will be filed.

Your pit bull wants to kill you – A list of victims of their own pit bulls – pit bulls that kill their owners

This list begins in 2002.
These folks all were killed by their/their family’s pit bulls: Carter Delaney, Carmen Ramos, Roberto Aguilera, Kelly Chapman, Brandon Coleman, Lorinze Reddings, Raymond Tomco, Darla Napora, Joseph Hines, Kelly Chapman, Christine Staab, Ethel Horton, Chester Jordan, Jennie Erquiaga, Tonia Parks, Gerald Adelmund, Blanche Bodeur, Mabel McAllister, Pamela Rushing, Edward Mitchell, Linda Leal, Michael Winters, Mattie Daugherty, Justin Lane, John Reynolds, Johnny Wilson, Mary Diana Bernal.
For chilling 911 calls, see youtube Tina Marie Canterbury and Clifford Wright, who last seen in his front yard, tending the landscaping, with his beloved pit bull at his side; found horribly mutilated a short time hours later on his front porch (his esophagus was gone). Oops, Charles Hagerman. Oh my, same week here’s another: Rebecca Carey who rescued pits and other “bully” dogs. Debra Roberts (found dead, her leg was almost chewed off). Wow, another “rescue” person, Mary Jo Hunt October, killed in her own backyard by her own dogs, while frantic neighbors couldn’t save her. Elsie Gracie, 91, pronounced dead at the scene, many wounds to body.
I don’t include the death of babysitting Grandma Betty Todd, as she did not live at that home. She was attacked by her son’s pit bull. When police arrived at the scene, no ambulance was called, as her throat and spinal injuries were incompatible with life. Their pit had never showed aggression, not even to Betty during previous visits.
This list doesn’t include dead or maimed children, that list is longer.
This list doesn’t include non-fatal injuries, such as limb amputations, broken legs, there are many more of them!
This list doesn’t include visiting, passing or neighborhood pets, that list is horrifically endless, and grows by the minute, from coast to coast…

It might be acceptable if pits only maimed/killed their “consenting adult” owners, but more often the victims are neighbors, visitors or passersby (pet/people).

If pit bulls can be overcome by the pit instinct to tug-and-not-stop, so that they kill adult family members, we should not be surprised when they maul or kill neighbors (pets/humans). – See more at: http://www.abc2news.com/dpp/news/region/baltimore_county/woman-injured-by-pit-bull-in-her-home#sthash.iX6JJsMw.dpuf

Phuket man gravely savaged in pit bull attack

Mr Tiarasak was walking in front of his house on February 6 when he was attacked. The three dogs, belonging to a neighbour, had got loose and had just been chased away by people nearby after they tried to bit a woman.

Running back home, they encountered Mr Tiarasak and set upon him instead.

“The three dogs attacked him as soon as they saw him. He was unable to fight back and could only yell for some help. He was bitten repeatedly before some villagers came and chased the dogs away from him,” said Pol Maj Sanit Nookong of Wichit police.

Although the attack took place 20 days ago, Mr Tiarasak’s mother Benjarat did not report it initially to the police because she believed the dogs’ owner would pay for her son’s medical treatment. When he refused to do so, she went to the police.

“[My son] has already spent 20 days in Bangkok Hospital Phuket and may be released in the next two or three days as his wounds on arms and chest are getting better now,” Mrs Benjarat told The Phuket News.

However, she said that doctors were concerned about large wounds on both his legs. If these healed, they had said, he would be discharged, but if not, then he would need skin grafts.

“Both of his legs have big wounds. He lost quite a lot of skin so we have to see whether the skin will grow back or not,” she explained.

“So far treatment has cost B700,000 and there will be more bills, but the dogs’ owner has refused to pay anything.”

When Mrs Benjarat went to Wichit Police Station yesterday (February 25) she took with her pictures of her son’s injuries and the hospital bills.

“She reported the dogs’ owner for ‘having in his care a ferocious or vicious animal, allowing it to wander about alone in a manner likely to cause injury to a person’,” Maj Sanit said.

“Up to now she and the owner have been unable to come to an agreement on compensation.”
