Pit Bull Attack in the Bronx

From Gothamist

Early this morning, a pair of vicious pit bulls broke free from their home in the Bronx and attacked two people walking down the street. According to the Daily News, the dogs bit the 55-year-old man and 25-year-old woman on the feet and legs as they ran from them around 12:30 a.m. The owners said they don't know what happened, but investigators believe the dogs escaped from their back yard; they have not been charged with any wrongdoing. The victims were treated from their bites and released from St. Barnabas Hospital. And as for the dogs, they were tranquilized by the Emergency Service Unit cops, and are now being held at Animal Care and Control in East Harlem—it's not clear what will happen to them next.
This comes just after a delivery man was viciously attacked by three pit bulls in Brooklyn.

  1. You can't fault the dogs. I have a pit bull. They were probably scared, and the people didn't help. I bet folks were screaming, throwing stuff at them, some serious level 6 drama. Dogs don't speak English, so they can't say I'm frightened, and will bite out of fear. The owners? Well, they may not have been bad people, they just didn't train their dogs well. Folks think dogs are just supposed to "know" how to behave.
