Typical pit bull owner – Locking Jaws – Man Found Guilty of Having Dog Kill Coral Springs Family’s Cat

An 81 year old man who allowed his dog to maul a cat and was caught on video doing so, was found guilty by a jury today. After only a day of testimony, the jury returned their verdict and found Hume Hamilton, 81, guilty of animal cruelty charges, a third degree felony.

Hume Hamilton was walking his pit bull when it attacked a cat belonging to Coral Springs resident Tia Spath.

Spath, who lives in Ridgeview, was shocked to find out that their cat named “Mama” had been killed at her family business, Brandy Bail Bonds, in Fort Lauderdale. She says that Mama had been their pet for almost 12 years and was a fixture at the business.

“Mama” who was tragically killed

In the shocking surveillance video, the owner of a pitbull is seen walking on the property of Brandy Bail Bonds while following his dog’s lead to get closer to the cat, when the pitbull viciously attacks. The dog’s strong jaws become locked around the cat and won’t release. The man then tries to pull the cat out of the dog’s mouth, even stepping on the cat’s stomach. He finally he pulls the dog away, runs away, and leaves the cat for dead.

Mama later died of her injuries and is buried at the business.

Hamilton had been held in jail since July without bond because he is facing charges for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was already on probation, so the judge held him without bond pending this trial. He could face jail time for this crime when he is sentenced next month.


Pit bulls attack boy, puppy in Germantown

Animal Control officers in Germantown are on the hunt for the owner of a pair of pit bulls blamed in the attack of a 10-year-old boy and his puppy Saturday afternoon.

This 8-week-old puppy is recovering from a broken jaw and two broken legs following an attack by two pit bulls.

The two pit bulls grabbed the puppy from the arms of his owner, breaking the puppy’s jaw and two legs. The boy was also bitten on his hands and arms.

Larry Solomon heard the boy’s calls for help and ran from his home to try and help.

“It was awful,” Solomon said. “… he was screaming at the dogs to leave him alone and let go. The dogs were jumping on him and biting him on the arms. They were scratching, and they actually grabbed the puppy out of his arms. [They were] starting to try and kill it.”

The dogs finally stopped once a neighbor hit them with a garden hose.

Omar Amaya and his dog, Rhino, ran into the same vicious pair last week. Rhino, a gentle pit bull, was no match.

“They ran after him and attacked him on the neck and hind legs,” Amaya recalled.

Luckily, a week later, Rhino is healing well.

Animal Control seized the culprits, a male and female, Saturday afternoon from someone described as a caretaker. That person was given six citations, but authorities are still working to locate the owner of the dogs. The results of an ongoing investigation will determine the future of the pit bull pair.

The mother of the boy they attacked plans to sue their owner and declines an on camera interview.

Coward – Owners of pit bulls leave after poodle killed, Pasco teen attacked

A Pasco family is upset after two pit bull mixes killed their poodle and attacked their son, then the owners were able to take their dogs and drive away.

“The woman that was there with the dog, she was just standing there smiling,” said Dawn Long, owner of Peppie, the 5-pound poodle that was killed at a Hudson recreational vehicle park. “I said, ‘Ma’am, can you not get my dog out of your dog’s mouth?'”

Her son, Bradley, was walking Peppie when the two dogs attacked. He tried to save the poodle from the other two dogs, to no avail.

“It’s been a couple weeks now and it’s almost healed up,” Bradley said of his injuries. He’s undergoing shots for rabies because the vet records for the dog that bit him were unavailable.

About 1 a.m. Sept. 2, a deputy was called to the Winter Paradise RV Park, 16108 U.S. 19 after the dogs had killed Peppie, according to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

The deputy’s report classifies the case a civil matter saying the pit bull mixes, Bertha and Milk Shake, broke loose, which is not the fault of the owners, listed in the report as Robin Crowe and Charles Cook.

The deputy instructed the couples to contact Animal Services the next business day, since that Monday was Labor Day.

Mark Long said it seemed as if the sheriff’s office did not take the matter seriously.

“The first sheriff that showed up did not want to make a report. He didn’t want to do anything,” Mark Long said.

John Malley, manager of Pasco County Animal Control, said his department did not know what the pitbulls’ owners were going to do.

“None of us are clairvoyant. We did not know that the owner would leave without being a responsible citizen,” Malley said.

The county investigates 1,200 dog bites each year and most of the time the dog gets to stay with its owner.

“The only time we take the animal is if we have a concern that the pet owner is not going to be responsible,” Malley said.

Animal Services said it will seize dogs that are running loose or have a history of violent behavior. Animal Services also says the owners of the dogs should have notified the department that they were moving.

West Valley City » A seven-hour standoff with a SWAT team in West Valley City ended with a pit bull shot to death after biting a police officer and a violent ex-con in custody after being shot with a bean bag round.

West Valley police Lt. Dale Brophy said the incident began as a 911 call about a dispute between three roommates that escalated when one of them allegedly pulled a large kitchen knife and threatened the other two.

When police arrived at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, they assisted the two roommates — who had barricaded themselves in the basement — out of a window. “Once we had everyone out but the suspect, we made contact by phone. He was not cooperative, he said he was not coming out,” Brophy said Wednesday.

Learning that firearms may be in the house, SWAT was called to the scene. Contact was again made by telephone but proved unsuccessful, and a decision was made to attempt to take the suspect, identified as Robert Dewitt Browne, 36, into custody as he came out the front door about 1:30 p.m. while talking to a negotiator.

Browne was shot in the chest by the bean bag — also known as a “flexible baton round,” a shot-filled, fabric-encased load meant as a non-lethal, stunning option to bullets. However, Browne still managed to close the door on the officers.

About 3:30 p.m., Brophy said, SWAT forced entry and one officer was attacked by the suspect’s pit bull and bitten on the leg. Another SWAT team member fired at least once, killing the dog, and officers retreated.

It was not until shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday that the shirt-less Brown, the red welt from the bean bag impact visible, finally gave in to a negotiator’s demands and surrendered.

Nearby Hillside Elementary School was put under lock down as a security precaution as police surrounded the suspect’s home near 4300 South and 6000 West just after noon Tuesday. Students were allowed to leave at the end of the school day, picked up by parents or designated emergency contacts.

Brophy said the bitten SWAT officer was treated at the scene and released.

As for the pit bull, Brophy said neighbors told them the animal had a history of being vicious and aggressive toward strangers.
