Two year old Prince the pit bull, along with his mother, Sugar (7 yrs) just moved into 9,500 sq. ft home last November along with their owners. The home is owned by Michael T and Jennifer Holliman . They moved into a nice neighborhood in Waukesha, Wisconsin which, in 2006, Money magazine ranked 36th on its list of the "100 Best Places to Live", in the United States. The yard is enclosed by a 3.5 foot picket fence. Prince could easily scale it.
Both pit bulls were loved family pets according to family members. Prince and Sugar were evidently pretty quiet because some neighbors weren't aware dogs were living there. However, there was one incident on June 12 in which one of the dogs got loose and chased a child.
On Tuesday, while fur mommy was putting Sugar in her kennel, Prince began to attack Sugar and then redirected onto his fur mommy. And didn't stop.
This is natural and normal:

A neighbor with a baseball bat came to the owner's rescue, probably saved her life, and got bitten and needed hospital care himself. The owner's injuries required a flight for life helicopter.
One of the officer reports states that chunks of the victim/owner's flesh were found on the ground and the dogs were described as being in a frenzy.
When Prince looked like he was going to redirect a second time, police shot him as he was scaling the picket fence and a sedated Sugar was taken to the shelter.
Semi Sedated Sugar
The neighbors do not want Sugar to come back to the neighborhood. The neighbors are extremely lucky that when this well cared for family pet "turned on" at that magic age of two years old, he flexed his genetic muscle in a big way, and attacked his owner rather than some innocent neighbors.
Some neighborhoods are not so lucky. The pit bull can hold a neighborhood hostage while the owner does nothing to protect them before insisting the dog be killed for injuring them or their own as happened with the pit bull named Zion who ended up not attacking the owner, but his 91 year old great grandmother who lost both her arms.
Even well cared for pit bulls attack their owners far more frequently than any other kind of dog.
I didnt' believe he would ever hurt me...ever. They do, they turn, I don't care how nice you are, one day.
"There was no choice," Jeff Frost said, who used the piece of wood. "They were screaming for help, and someone had to come to the rescue" when the owners were being attacked by their own pit bull.
Burden was shouting, “Help me, shoot him,” while being attacked by his own pit bull.
The officers heard Montague yell: “My dog attacked me, shoot it, kill it,”
To a 911 operator: "We have two full-blooded red-nosed pits and they just attacked our mom. We can't get to my mom and my brother just went out there and they attacked him too. They don't need to get out of the ambulance or the dogs will try to get them, too."
Nutter Mark Hess of the Humane Animal Welfare Society wants everyone to know "that attacking humans is not breed specific and can happen to anyone." I'd like to see him work up a list like this one from dogsbite.org or provide some pictures of dogs as bloody as Prince for non-fighting breeds.
And the nutters are out in force saying the same old thing in comments sections below photos of a blood soaked dog.
Do you remember that fortune cookie game where you read the fortune and add "in bed." to the end? Fun times.
The nutter game goes like this: into any nutter statement, you insert "blood-covered" right before "pit bull" or "pibble" or "pittie" or "breed." You can try it with the comments for this story. It makes reading them a little easier.
Blood-covered pit bulls are sweet...
I AM SICK of hearing people that are media educated with zero experience
with the blood-covered breed, claiming they are vicious.
