Re: “Local Ad Campaign Seeks to Soften Pit Bulls' Dangerous Image

On April 13th 2014 in Huntington Vermont my three year old was attacked by a pit bull hybrid. He was running toward his eleven year sister and had not been interacting with the dog. The dog saw him running, and took off from another corner of the yard and pounced on him just before he reached his sister. She fought the dog and tried to save her brother, getting bruised and bit in the process. If she had frozen, run away, or not been present my three year old son would have been killed.

The pitbull bit his right leg from the ankle up, leaving minor lacerations and bruises, all the way up to his right nipple. Between the buttocks, groin, abdomen, and the right chest there were numerous serious tears and punctures, with some skin left hanging off. Mercifully, his feet, hands, genitals, neck, and face were spared, but not much else was. My son is healing, and he will have some scars. He has not slept through the night since, and he has trouble going to sleep. He is more insecure. This attack changed him.

The dog had attacked another child and hurt him badly this past Fall, and a half an hour before the attack my daughter asked the owner - a relative - to tie up the dog. The suggestion was dismissed with a wave of the hand as he turned away. The dog is dead now, but the owner has not been held to any consequences at all.

I'm sure pit bulls are very sweet. That, however, is not my experience.
