Just so we are on the same page here, Staffordshire Terriers and Pit Bulls are basically the same breed. You can argue they are totally different. But nope, they’re not. Sorry.
On March 9th, an 8 year old girl in Lithonia was attacked by two pit bulls. Oops, I meant Staffordshire Terriers (no fucking difference). She was severely mauled. To the point where a portion of her left arm had to be amputated to save her life. She finally got off a ventilator yesterday. According to her father, she woke up screaming and crying, thinking she was still being attacked.
Three people tried to help this little girl during the mauling. A mauling so severe that it went on for over 15 minutes. It finally took the intervention of a police officer to stop the attack. He tried beating the dogs off with his baton, but that did not stop them. So he shot one of them dead. Only then did the attack cease.
The other dog ran off. When animal control officers arrived, neighbors pointed out the home that the dogs had come from. They went to the home and found surviving dog inside a garage, and they took it into custody (too bad they didn’t kick around first). Apparently these dogs had been terrorizing the neighborhood for months, including biting an elderly woman last October. This did not stop the stupid fuckhead dog owner from leaving the dogs without any sorts of restraints whatsoever. The dogs were kept in a garage. With the garage door wide open. No fence. No leash. WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? And no, the homeowner was NOT home.
After the mauling and the police/EMS arrived, neighbors noticed the owner of the dogs pull into the street, and immediately pull out. The police actually had to track that dumb bitch down at a friend’s house.
It is a fucking goddamned shame that they are euthanizing the dog. Twyann Vaughn, the dog’s owner, is only facing a misdemeanor charge of reckless conduct. Personally I think the dog and the dog’s owner need to be euthanized. FUCK PIT BULLS. I hope this bitch becomes the target of some sort of vigilante justice.
