    Boy Survives Attack Of 4 Pit Bulls

    TAMPA, Fla. -- A Tampa boy is recovering after being mauled by four pit bulls on Tuesday.



    Police said the boy, whose age was not released, was walking near an intersection Thursday evening when four pit bulls went after him. The dogs had escaped from their owner's yard.



    Reports said the dogs chased the boy across four lanes of traffic before pouncing on him when he slipped and fell.

    I was glad to hear both the boy and the woman who helped him will be okay.

    For all the people that were in the pet corner the other week defending pit bulls - here we go again.

    I am so glad the kid is okay, it could have been worse.

    The least these people who own this breed of dog could do is keep their yard secure.

    I couldn't agree more.

    It's like it is a symbol of being an idiot, just own a pit bull.

    Wow - I am so happy this little boy is alive. Four pitbulls - unbelievable. I truly think this breed should be outlawed.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Here we go again here we go againherewegoagain!! %$#^&*! I am so sick of this. So they just went after him. No provocation, no nothing. And why am I not surprised? If I had a pit bull in the neighborhood, believe me, my son would be teaching me how to use his shotgun. I'm NOT kidding.

    The woman who stopped her car IMO saved this boys life and I hope she is recognized as the hero she is!!!
    I'm also wondering what will happen as far as the dogs owner is concerned, all it said was that the owner was cited for not keeping the dogs secure. Will the owner be held responsible for all the medical bills etc for the 2 victims?
    Will they be allowed to keep the 4 dogs even tho they attacked a child?

    My fiance and I are looking for a dog to adopt after we get married and a big concern of our is of course the dogs temperment. With all the horror stories I hear about pit bulls I have to say I would not feel safe bringing one into our neighborhood. Not saying attacks are only done by PB but for me the risk of something happening would be to great.

    vegas bride (love your name!)... good luck in picking out your new 4-legged family member! i think that is a wise choice... and remember that once you find a dog who becomes a beloved companion.. you also have to protect them from pit bulls. always keep your eyes peeled and be alert. this goes for any dog that may be aggressive to yours ... and sometimes, of course, dogs just 'posture' with each other and get into scuffles to work out their pecking order-- that's to be expected at dog parks and whatnot.. but these dogs are especially dangerous. sure there may be some sweet ones out there, but why take the chance? it isn't worth it.

    p.s.-- and i agree, this woman is a true HERO!!!!!

    Yeah, well this person would use a gun to kill an attacking pit bull on her property.

    Actually, I've never shot a gun and am somewhat tongue in cheek here, (and hoping it never happens) because I would want to shoot it but if it were attacking, I'd be too afraid I'd miss and shoot the person being attacked. I wouldn't risk that, so really, I probably wouldn't shoot. Now if my son (a very good shot) were around, it would be a harder decision. If he had a clear shot I wouldn't hesitate to encourage him.

    But tell me, (anyone) if a pb attacked you or someone you were with, what would you do?

    I think I'd have to shoot it. And then have it stuffed and on display in my house.

    Hiya Eve!
