News The Squeaky Wheel Gets the Mauling

I finally understand where all those upset pit bull owners who complain to me about my “breedism” are coming from. Pit bulls are not the problem. Irresponsible parents who don’t have the sense to adequately maintain their children’s wagons are to blame.
The toddler who was brutally attacked by a pit bull is doing better…. The dog attacked Blevins, her mother, another woman and her toddler son last Wednesday. The four were taking a walk near 40th and Vinton when the dog went into a rage. It bit down on Charlotte’s head, tearing off a large part of her scalp. Charlotte’s mom and the other woman with her fought to pry the dog loose and get it away from their kids.
“He knew what he was doing,” says Wendy Blevins, Charlotte’s mom. “He knew what he was doing, he went directly for the kids.”
However, the dogs owner tells Action 3 News her pit bull only attacked because it was spooked by the sound of the wheels on the wagon that was carrying the children.
But now I hope authorities will take appropriate action and have that wagon put down before it squeaks again. No dog should have to suffer like that.
