Mr. Hanson,

You are assuming an unprovoked attack. You do not know for sure that it
was.  It is possible that this man who was attacked has a history of
provoking or teasing or even harming these dogs (throwing things at them
ect.).  I have seen and had neighbors like this.  If that is the situation,
you could get a reaction just like what happened from the dogs in question.
 Dogs do not forget mistreatment.  
    I am not saying that this is definitely the case, but I have seen it
happen before with other breeds.  What made me post this is that it seems
the dogs were housedogs, living with children.  This is an unusual reaction
for dogs raised with children.
    Remember that things are not always as they seem.  If Mr.Chen was in
the habit of teasing /harming thedogs, he would never admit it.

Not really. Most dogs that bite outsiders are wonderful
with the family and wouldn't dream of hurting a family member.
Same as may huimans in jail for *** would never hurt a loved one.

Dog Attacks Man, Bites Him Nearly 70 Times

June 25, 1996

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A pair of pit bull terriers attacked a neighbor who
was taking out his trash, dragging him to the ground and biting him
nearly 70 times.

"I thought I would die," Gene Chen, 45, told the Daily News of Los
Angeles from his hospital bed Monday. "Every time I tried
to stand, I was pulled down."

Chen, a printer, was being treated at Northridge Hospital Medical
Center. Chen's condition had stabilized and improved from Sunday night
when he was admitted in critical condition.

Chen was attacked and mauled by the dogs while taking out his garbage
at about 9 p.m. Sunday.

Chen, who tumbled over the sidewalk and curb as he was pulled by the
dogs, was saved only when the two dogs - named Chopper and Jody - were
surrounded by screaming neighbors.

"It was one of the worst things I'd ever seen in my life," said
neighbor Raymond Reveles, who ran to help clutching an ax handle. "It
seemed like I was standing there for an eternity. You can only do so
much. You take a swing at the dog and you could hit the guy."

Chen was being treated for 67 teeth marks and cuts from his head to
his toes, hospital official said.

"He was outside when he saw two children who opened a garage door and,
for no apparent reason, the two pit bulls, one weighing as much as 75
pounds, charged at him knocking him down and biting him," said Sgt.
Bill Maarschalk.

Nam Nguyen saw the attack on his neighbor and was one of many who
tried to fight the dogs off with sticks.

"He was badly hurt from the neck down pretty much," he said.

The dogs were placed in a rabies quarantine at the West Valley Animal
Care and Control Center, where they will be observed for 10 days.

The dogs' owner apologized for the attack and said she wouldn't try to
prevent the dogs from being destroyed if authorities decided they must
be euthanized.

"We're sorry and regret this happened," said Debbie Potts. " We're
really sorry and actually are scared to have (the dogs) around our
children after this has happened."

Yup, here are a couple of details.
1) the post you responded to was made by someone who fakes his email address to
*appear* to be someone else. This person has repeatedly bashed pitbulls on this
group for no real reason than to get a reaction and has FORGED his address on
several occasions, pretending to be a different person on this group in an
attempt to make them look bad.

2)In the case of this particular attack, ANY breed could have been involved that
was allowed to run loose. Many times in attack cases, the breed involved is
misidentified.  The dog itself is not the problem, the owners are. By forcing
owners to be responsible for their pets is the only way you are going to get the
pets off the streets, thus preventing nearly all of the attacks.

This is the kind of info I've been searching for. Another unprovoked
attack. Thanks much. Any other details?

 This should NOT END with merely destrucion of the dogs.
Owner MUST be charged with contributory negligence,
harboring dangerous dogs and reckless endangerment.
  Too may dogs out there reguardless of breed are accidents waiting
to happen. Punish the owner and less future accidents will occur.

When a man ***s or***s someone does that automatically mean that all
men are evil etc?
Let's put this in perspective

Wrong Bob.  We must have a society where kids who throw rocks at dogs
are beaten unmercifully! If a kid does a crime..beat him! If a man***s
a woman with *** kill him! If a woman lies cut out her tongue!
Mosy dog attacks are provoked by people! Remember that!

This can be verified checking bite cases, especially those involving
children playing at friends' houses being bitten by the family dog.

That man should have stayed out of those 70 places. Then he would have
not gotten by those 70 dogs.
