News Pit Bulls Maul Woman to Death

Schmader’s out of town, so I’m picking up the murderous pit bull beat:
A pack of pit bulls surrounded a woman and mauled her to death, authorities said Wednesday. Deputies found Kelly Caldwell, 45, lying in the street in Yermo around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, and took her to a hospital, where she later died, the San Bernardino County sheriff’s department said.
After the mauling, the dogs ran to a nearby house. Deputies shot one dog to death when it returned to the scene and acted aggressively as paramedics were trying to save Caldwell’s life, authorities said.
A second dog was shot to death Wednesday morning when it too returned. Deputies said it became aggressive as an animal control officer was trying to capture it.
Mauling you nearly to death on Christmas day isn’t enough. Pit bulls don’t want any damn paramedics to show up and try to save your life. Too bad we have to wait until a pit bull attacks before we shoot the damn things.
In other pit bull news: police officers in Ohio opt to taser two pit bulls that were terrorizing a city block—and a children’s hospital. A mother and daughter were attacked by a pit bull on Christmas Eve in Indiana. And here’s another one we missed in November: a pit bull—a good one, nice to children, never aggressive—jumped an 11 year-old boy named Seth, ripped open his neck, and killed him.
The attack happened while Seth and his brother, Brenden, 9, were running through their house in the 2900 block of Fairlane Drive….
The attack came as a shock to some neighbors, who said the dog never showed signs of aggression and was frequently in the company of children.
“All these kids being in the backyard—I just cannot believe it,” neighbor Kenneth Lawhorn said in a November interview. “Things just happen, I guess.”
They certainly do.
