Woman and Puppy Recovering From Dog Attack

Police and Animal Control in Paris rush to a home to stop two dogs who were attacking a woman and her puppy.

When officers got to the home on Gano St., they found the woman on the ground being mauled by a pit bull. We're told she stabbed the animal with a butcher knife, but it would not let go. Animal control officers say they had no choice but to put the pit bull and the other dog down.

The woman's puppy was also attacked and ran away.
Officers spent eight hours searching for the hurt puppy and were finally able to find him. The owners of the two dogs are now facing charges.

    Dog owners of any breed should be held responsible for their pets. However it does not help the lady from Louisville that got pulled off her riding lawnmower by pitbulls and killed.I have seen many pets that were lovable and friendly and then one day just snap and bite or kill someone. People who try to buck bad pet owners are harassed and intimidated. Many times the pets are just like their owners. So the best solution is to make laws and enforce them heavily. If your pets are good and you take good care of them then you dont have anything to worry about.

    i have read the comments on pits i have 2 very wounderful pis . they are our family pets .one 8 yrs the other 5 yrs they never fight they never have hurt or bitten anyone . they are my babies. they are spoiled have a awesome yard to run and are happy dogs. i thinkthat people freak out to much on the name . i think it also has alot to do with how much attention any pet recieves and the training. i work at home and spend alot of time with my pets . i also own a teacup chihuahua my pits baby her . the three are loved ,happy .content with life. you people who say kill them wake up they might just be dogs to you but they are peoples pets ,family. they also have a heat and soul just like you!!!! i agree the owners should be resposable.ther was no reason for them dogs to be out of the yard with out the owners and on a leash.i know wher my 3 are at all times. just as any oter pet owner should...

    I mostly agree with Tommy!!..I also help take care of them and they have never ever in my life seen them show aggression toward me or anyone else...I had a friend come down at my cousin's house and she had her first pitbull in the house and all Belle(the pitbull)did was just jump-up on my friend and lick her!!...Both of her pits just like to play around and have fun..One of them thinks that they are the size of a toy poodle and the other is the protection one she is always on alert!!...

    I do not get why people say pitbulls are mean and nasty! My cousin and her husband own 2 pitbulls and I have never in my life what time I have been around them see them use anger toward any other dogs or any other people!! To me they are the sweetest dogs I have been around! Now one of my uncles own a little chihuahua and believe me I promise you that it is A WHOLE LOT MEANER then my cousin's 2 pits!! And if you have a problem with this comment just comment back and then I will comment back! When my cousin first brought home her first pitbull I wasn't sure weather to go around it or not then one day I did it did not do one thing to me it DID NOT jump on me and it DID NOT bite or anything else!! I don't care what you say about them, they are harmless if treat them right! These two dogs are sweet and spoiled rotten..There is not one mean bone in both of these pits! If a stranger comes into her house yes her youngest pit will attack..But there is a difference!!

    The guy with the horses...what if i said i would kill a horse if it got around me or my pitbulls? and what if people thought horses should outlawed would the tables be turned on how you think about things then? and i would still like to know how old the pit was...and how it was raised. I agree 100% with both comment from tommy. I wouldn't take any amount for either one of my pits. People who think pits are mean vicious animals you are stupid...it's just like any other dog if it has had a rough life and neglected, abused or not been out around others or other aniamls then yeah it's proably going think it has to fight to take up for its self...that's all it's going to know to do. I know little house dogs that are meaner than my pits. People need to be more educated on pits and actually get around to see how gental they really are. You shouldn't judge something just because of it's breed. I love my pits just like anybody else loves their dogs, horses, cats. etc. SO reslly study up on pits.

    I am still waiting to find out if the lady had her "puppy" on a leash? To the Anonymous postedMar12 at 01:11..THANK YOU. It is refreshing to have a comment from someone who works with ALL dogs daily. You are 100% right.Tommy as well. The pitts used to fight are easy to handle. I hate people that put these dogs in pits and expect them to fight to their death.They are loyal loving dogs and I wouldn't take anything for mine.PUNISH THE DEED....NOT THE BREED.

    How many dog attacks is the in the last 12 months? Too many to count! Every county needs to enact an ordinance similiar to that of Lincoln Co. It's a shame the government has to force pet owners to be responsible, but people MUST be protected! I really don't care what breed of dog it is, if it attacks someone, then it needs to be put down! End of story! If pet owners love their pets so much, then ACT LIKE IT! and keep them up! I also agree with the post that these dog owners "should be charged with assault with a deadly weapon, or malicious wounding, if they kill someone, you should be charged with complicity, or as an accesory to murder." That way pet owners will finally get the message that they are RESPONSIBLE for their pet's actions! Again we need tougher pet ordinances in every county!
