2nd attack in 3 months by same dogs...

June 30th, 2009, 08:14 PM
Three months ago, an elderly man was attacked by two dogs in his driveway. He suffered several bites and needed some stitches. Another man came to his aid with a hockey stick and managed to get the dogs off.
That is when a woman in a blue van, sped up , rounded up the dogs and took off like a shot. The breed of the dogs wasn't disclosed, because neither the victim or witness could be positive.

Few days ago, two dogs matching the description of the attack on the elderly man, managed to get loose in another area of town, and attacked two children in a park. One of the little girls had several abrasions to her face, like in the first case a witness came to the aid and managed to fight off the dogs.
Again, a woman in a blue minivan, sped up but only managed to round up one of her dogs before taking off. The other dog is now in custody of the Calgary Pound, and will be designated and rightly so as a dangerous dog.

As it would turn out, the dog captured is a Pitbull. It is assumed that it's counterpart is also a Pitbull.
This woman knows full well her dogs have attacked and hurt people, and is now on the run, or in hiding.

Again, there's talk of banning and BSL, because one woman who obviously doesn't know how to handle or control her dogs. :wall:

I hope she's caught and charged to the fullest extent of the law, and I hope both her dogs are destroyed before it's too late. Human aggression should not be tolerated.

Shame on this woman, she has no idea the extent of the damage she has caused with her total lack of responsibility.

What I dont get is that so many people have seen her and her van and yet no license # or even a partial :shrug:

I agree this woman needs to be found.

This is absolutely sickening. Sorry - I owned a so called 'dangerous' dog and I have to say that I lived my life around him to ensure that he was always monitored. I loved him dearly, but if he ever mauled anyone - that would be the end. I don't mean to sound insensitive but it is a question of ensuring that everyone and everything is safe.

Pitbulls or like are now being questioned in this province as well. They are banned in many municipalities. It is making it very difficult to help these dogs. It is very frustrating for rescues and shelters, not to mention that here in Quebec, there are very few rescues that will even take a pit, X pit, or amstaff - they decline any help whatsoever which absolutely disgusts me to no end!

I send my embassador pitties to an EXCELLENT pittie rescue to Alberta. Now - if this ban starts there -there is little hope to save these dogs.

I say get this idiot woman, have her pay a huge fine and I am sorry to say this but these dogs should either go into a rescue where it can be explored to see if they can be saved or rehabilitated. If not - then euthanize them humanly.

Seriously - I am not just ranting about this right now, I am furious, angry and frustrated that people do not take responsibility! I am PISSED!

You know,having a dog attack me,any dog,would be very,very scary and painful,it was bad enough the times Rocky jumped me:yell:
Maybe the ignorant owner of these dogs is doing this to scare people of pitties,maybe she wants BSL.

It's strange they've been attacking in different neighbor-hoods,or maybe I am just reading too many mystery-books:confused:

It's disgusting that these dogs will lose their life because the owner has not been responsible enough to 1. train them and socialize them properly, and 2, keep them away from others knowing they are like that! :wall:
