Dog leaves woman with 'massive' injuries - Yahoo! New Zealand News

Just FYI.....

One of todays headlines in New Zealand - yep, I am not a fan of Pits, Pit crosses - etc

No vid, boring yep - just adding to the debate - kinda

"A 65-year-old Rotorua woman has suffered massive injuries after a dog she had at her home for company attacked her.

The attack, on Saturday morning, left the woman with serious injuries to her right arm and a broken leg.

"The injuries were massive," Rotorua District Council animal control supervisor Kevin Coutts told NZ Newswire.

"The worst I have ever seen and I would hazard a guess the worst I am ever likely to see."

It's unclear what caused the dog, a staffordshire bull terrier/pitbull terrier cross, to attack, Mr Coutts said.

The dog was a family dog and belonged to the woman's grandson.

It had been left with the woman, at her request, for company, Mr Coutts said.

The woman is now in Waikato Hospital recovering from her injuries.

After the attack, the dog was surrendered by its owner and it has since been put down, Mr Coutts said.

Detective Senior Sergeant Zane Smith told NZ Newswire Rotorua police are at the early stages of investigating what happened.
They will be speaking with the woman once she's released from hospital"

  • These cunt dogs are an ugly useless creature. They should be used as profiling tools for death squads to pick their targets in the future civil wars.

    • @fuchajen All true. But had the dog been a lap-dog the consequences would not have been life-threatening. The Pits tend to attack the upper-arms. they then de-glove the arm. That means they literally pull the flesh down to the wrist. We had a postal carrier who was fully disabled after losing his right bicep and other injuries from such an attack. No rational person would want to own or be around one of these.

    • @fuchajen Reminds me of the story of a frog who wanted to cross a river. He saw an alligator and asked him if he would carry him across. The Gator said sure. The frog said, "You do promise not to eat me don't you?" , to which the gator said, "I give you my word I am a non-biting gator." As they got to the other side the gator suddenly grabbed the frog and started to eat him. The frog cried, "But you promised not to do this! Why are you eating me?!" The Gator simply More..

  • The solution is simple: kill all pitbulls - AND their owners.
