First of all this could have happened on any breed and by how they are raised by owners. The news also didn't show the picture of the dog. It's not the one on the video. RIP Laura Williams Ray, my condolences to the family.
"Choate states that if you are getting attacked there are a few things you can do to protect yourself, "Make a big noise, yell at them, scream at them, jump up and down, do something that will scare them away. If you have something in your hand, throw it just get their attention off of you."
Dumperton Jones - As someone who has been attacked twice by a large pit bull (two different occasions, two different dogs) the only way to stop the attack is to fight...fight with everything you have. That's my experience. First time took OC and a baton, second time took a baton. Both times the owner was there and could so nothing to stop their dog.
I hate that the news blasted “PIT BULL ATTACK.” A tragedy happened and it’s focused more on the breed of dog than the tragedy at hand. I wish the people commenting horrible things on the thread would realize animals are animals no matter what kind and some times animals are temperamental, especially in a foreign place. No excuse, it should have been prevented. But, everyone should be more focused on prayers for her family and what the establishment could do to prevent terrible things like this happening.
Sorry. I’m being a pit mom and human being who is getting worked up over everyone arguing about how awful a certain breed of dog is when a woman lost her life. Prayers for her family and friends and the dogs family who will most likely lose their pet.
