Victor Torres says he was just on the way to a friend's house to have a beer Tuesday.
"The dogs are just ripping him apart. When I drove by, one dog had one end of the guy, and the other dog had the other end and they were trying to pull him apart," Torres told FOX40.
Torres says he jumped out of his track and grabbed the only thing he had with him -- a blue plastic oar. He hit one with a plastic oar he had. It shattered, but it only redirected the dog's attention to him.
"I could feel his teeth sinking in. You could hear the flesh tearing and all that," Torres said. "After that I know there's a big shake too. So I'm like, 'Oh man. Here comes the shake.'"
Two other people were also attacked and injured by the dogs. The dogs were described as a male and a female, and they are said to belong to two transients.
Notice how they kinda just slide that in... that the pit bulls belong to homeless people who are clearly breeding them to sell the puppies.
The female dog had recently given birth to a litter of 10 puppies, which was found nearby [in the homeless camp???]
In the video clip, they say that Animal Control "has dealt" with the male Pit Bull in the past. Well, what does that mean? It attacked someone previously? It was running loose? It didn't have rabies tags?
For his trouble, Torres has lost a lot of movement and feeling in his left hand. Torres likely saved the man's life, but he says he wishes the whole ordeal had never happened.
A GoFundMe campaign was established to help offset Torres' medical expenses. [because he'll never get any money out of these homeless people]
