Location: Thomasville, GA
Victim: juvenile female
Breed: Pit Bull, three dogs (all intact)
Circumstances: In yet another case of stupidity, a little girl was allowed to play on a trampoline in her backyard where three dogs, two of whom are always chained, were present. The dog loose, a pregnant
female, may have initiated the attack. The article calls these the "family dogs" but in no way can one call dogs they breed for profit and leave chained in a backyard a "family dog". Idiots cost this poor child her life. :(
Animal control says one was roaming loose in the yard, the other two were chained up.
"The child was possibly playing on the trampoline. The female dog who was pregnant possibly started the attack on the child," says Assistant Commander Melvin Johnson with the Thomasville Police Department.
