Hi,I am new here,snd am looking for answers.About 2 1/2 weeks ago there was news about 2 blk pitbuls terrorizing and mauling the cats in the neighborhood.One had it's back legs chewed off and the poor thing was still alive.The ownsr saw the perptraitors run away,they had to pay the vet bill to put an end to their babies suffering.This is were my story bebinx.A few days after thzt my bengal,Marshall,slipped out.Ofcorse he was't allowed out,but he recently discovred the short delay in the outside door,and would run underder a thick holly tree.So I went on to do the dishes,I could see my yard.I looked out the door and to my horror there were the2 blk pitbuls shaking and pulling on something,I felt sick and ran has fast as I could to find their'chew toy' was my beloved Marshall.He took 3 ragged breaths and died.The 2 monsters didn't even run,so I chased after them thinking they would run home,still clutching Marshalls limp body.I intended to confront the beasts owner,but they didn't run home. They turned out of the alley and ran up the street.I kept screaming if anyone knew then,with nos for answers.Finally I codnered one and grabbed jt's collar(not smart I know),but I was so hurt.Some man gave me a nylon rope,I tied it tight around the devils neck,still with Marshsall in otherhand.Dragged the killer back to the alleyby my house,was going to call animals services,before I could even get the rope around the fence it bit me through my tumb nail,then practally removed the skin from my left index finger.When my teenage son saw hoa the dog mauld me,he grabbed the rope(he's a big boy)and stabbed it.It was snarling and lunging at him so he grabbed a kitana fdom the garadge,so to keepdistance between him ang the chomping fangs,and killed it.He went a bit overbord with the sword,but he was just so upset.Ahen authorities finally arrived,they could care less about mg injuries orMarshalls brutal killing.When I finally,45 min later, to lookat him,they picked him up by one leg dangled him around took 2 pictures and just kind of drpped him.I had to have sergery to my finger. A week later I was arrested at my home for cruelty to animals because of the way,wich I don't justify,the dog died.They could careless about my injuries,oMarshall,or the other owners their murdered family members.Why was the pitbull so important,how long before tgey attact kids or the elderly.Sorry for such a long story
What a nightmare. From beginning to end, horrible. My condolences to you for your loss of Marshall.
I had a similar situation a few weeks ago, which thank goodness did not end so tragically. Someone visiting a neighbor let their dog run loose. (I don't know what kind he is, he was medium-sized (maybe 50 pounds?), orangey blond, and had a fluffy tail like a fox). My daughter said that he sniffed her and walked away. I was standing about 15 feet from him-- he was in MY yard, and I said, "Well, hey there, buddy," in a very friendly tone. He ran at me, teeth bared, low growl. I fell down and I started yelling at him and he just went away.
Then he came back and was chasing my cat. I screamed and the neighbor came out. My husband heard the scream, and knowing that the dog had attacked me earlier, he came outside and pointed his gun at the dog, who then had quit chasing the cat and was standing in my yard. Neighbor said "If you shoot my dog I'll call the cops." Hubby said if you don't get your dog I will call the cops. He attacked my wife and now he is after my cat!"
They eventually managed to coax their dog into their car. I don't know why they didn't just grab him and put him in.. Makes me wonder if he would bite them too.
