Man and Boy Attacked by Mother Pit Bull in Logan Heights

By Ross Jurewitz on December 7, 2012

A boy and a man were attacked by a mother pit bull guarding her two four-month-old puppies on December 2 around 6:56 a.m. According to a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher, the dog attack took place in the 2900 block of Franklin Avenue in Logan Heights. The injured victims, a child and an adult, were immediately transported to Mercy Hospital for treatment. A dog attack is a terrifying and traumatic experience for anyone, especially for a child. We are relieved that both injured victims did not suffer any major injuries and pray that they recover soon.

Lt. Kalani Hudson said that the two puppies got loose and started playing. The mother pit bull followed her puppies, became aggressive, and bit the passersby. All three dogs were later impounded. Hudson also said that the mother pit bull is going to be held in quarantine for 10 days to be observed for possible signs of rabies.

According to Dogsbite.org, from the year 2006 to 2008, pit bulls were involved in a fatal dog bite attack every 21 days in the United States.

It is an unfortunate incident since the dog mother was just trying to protect her puppies and attacked the passersby in a rage to safeguard them from harm.

Victims of dog attacks and their families may seek to file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation and hold the at-fault dog owner liable for their injuries.
