Man and dog attacked by two pit bulls

Comments Off

A South Carolina man is recovering after he and his dog were attacked by two pit bulls while the man was taking his dog for a walk. The pit bulls belonged to a neighbor who said that they escaped from his yard.

The man suffered puncture wounds to his hand during the attack, but his dog was so badly mauled that she had to be put to sleep.

As I have been reviewing news stories in preparing my blog entries, I see stories over and over again about groups of two or more pit bulls attcking another dog or other animal. This relates to the fact that pit bulls are at heart animals that operate in packs and relates to the territorial nature of the animals. Two or more pit bulls should be a safety concern for anyone nearby.
