JOLIET IL – A WOMAN WAS TAKING HER DOG FOR A WALK AT 7:55AM WHEN THEY WERE SET UPON BY DEADLY MAULING MUTANT PITS – HER HUSBAND, AN OFF-DUTY OFFICER, CAME WITH A GUN AND NEIGHBORS CAME WITH BASEBALL BATS AS THEY FOUGHT TO SURVIVE THE BATTLE!

An off-duty police officer shot one of  TWO PIT BULLS  that attacked his dog and wife last week, according to Joliet police.
Joliet Deputy Chief Ed Gregory said officers were called at 7:55 a.m. Jan. 15 , to the Timbers Edge subdivision when a man reported his neighbor had been bitten.  “When the responding officers arrived, they heard gunfire and had called other police to the scene when further shots were heard,” Gregory said.
Police then encountered a man walking with a handgun and ordered him to drop the weapon. After he complied with their commands, police learned the 59-year-old is employed as a Forest Preserve District of  Will County police officer, Gregory said.
The off-duty officer said his wife had been walking their medium-size dog, Hannah, on Timber Edge Circle when they were set on by two pit bulls, Mocha and Nala, who came from a nearby yard, according to Gregory.
The woman called her husband, who arrived to find one pit bull had Hannah by the throat and the other had her by the hindquarters. The husband, wife and the pit bulls’ owner, Barbara Szczurowski, 60, struggled to separate the dogs, Gregory said.
“The wife was wearing gloves that one of the pit bulls tore through and bit her hard enough to break her wrist,” Gregory said.  We later found a 4-INCH TOOTH ON THE STREET.”
 
As the respective owners tried to regain control of their dogs, the off-duty officer encountered Mocha and  “shot the dog three or four times as it charged at him,”  Gregory said.  Mocha went back inside Szczurowski’s residence.
Meanwhile, the female victim found her dog Hannah on her front porch, but was followed by Nala, who began to attack again.  Gregory said another neighbor saw what was happening and struck the pit bull with a baseball bat.
Police found both pit bulls with Szczurowski, Gregory said.  Mocha was taken to a veterinarian and euthanized because of the gunshot wounds.
Animal Control was notified but refused to take custody of Nala,  according to Gregory. On Wednesday, the city attorney notified Szczurowski to take the pit bull to Animal Control to be held until it is determined whether she is a “vicious dog.”
Hannah was treated for about 50 puncture wounds, but was alive, according to police reports available Thursday.  Her owner was treated for her broken wrist, and Szczurowski sustained lacerations separating the dogs, Gregory said.
Szczurowski was cited with keeping dangerous dogs and letting her dogs run loose.  “According to neighbors, the dogs are running loose regularly,” Gregory said.
                                                      ***********************************
ACCORDING TO WILL COUNTY COURT RECORDS, SHE WAS CITED WITH POSSESSING A DANGEROUS ANIMAL IN DECEMBER 2013, BUT THE CASE WAS DISMISSED TWO MONTHS LATER.  IN DECEMBER 2014, SZCZUROWSKI WAS SUED BY THE TIMBERS EDGE RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION AFTER THE PIT BULLS BIT ANOTHER RESIDENT, ACCORDING TO COURT FILINGS.  THAT CASE IS STILL PENDING.

Gotta love this:
“Animal Control was notified but refused to take custody of Nala, (one of the attacking pit bulls).”That’s like the cops refusing to arrest some guy after he’s stabbed several people because… ?? They were closed? Afraid? Tired?Tell me again what “Animal Control” is getting paid tax payer money for?

I’m happy this lady has a documented history with her pit bulls being dangerous. Throw the book at her! Glad one pit is dead, and hoping the other is soon to follow.

I like the opening about the New World Order. It is so true! It is insane that we have to arm ourselves to the teeth just to walk around our neighborhoods! Pit bulls are animal and people aggressive. They are dangerous and should not be legal. Sorry nutters if you can’t have nanny dog as a pet. You’re all a bunch of selfish jerks that only care about protecting your maulers, and your delusions.

http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2016/02/22/joliet-vicious-dog-law-to-go-to-committee-for-review/a2050ah/

JOLIET – A City Council committee Wednesday expressed dissatisfaction with the latest changes in an ordinance aimed at controlling vicious dogs amid another report of a pit bull attack in Joliet.

Mayor Bob O’Dekirk, meanwhile, said he is ready to propose that the city take over dog control if it cannot work out a new arrangement with Joliet Township Animal Control.

The Land Use and Legislative Committee was to review a final version of a new ordinance on vicious and dangerous dogs Wednesday. But committee members said the ordinance still does not address what happens on the spot when a dog attacks another person or animal.

“I think what we need to address is at the scene of attack, what happens?” Councilman Jim McFarland said. “At every dog attack, is Animal Control going to come out?”

The city is in the process of working out a new intergovernmental agreement with Joliet Township Animal Control, which is now the authority called for dog attacks.

The committee also heard from resident Stewart Warren, who said she was walking her two Yorkshire terriers Saturday on Marion Street when a pit bull attacked one of them. The injured dog was treated for a broken rib and dislocated shoulder, and Warren has an animal hospital bill of $3,512.

“This dog is still in my neighborhood,” Warren said. “I’ve had people tell me to get a concealed carry permit in case something like this happens again.”

Committee members said the revised ordinance does not address what happens in cases like the Saturday attack during the time period before a dog is declared vicious.

“No one should be afraid to live in their neighborhood because there’s a dog running around,” Councilwoman Jan Quillman said. “This has to be stopped.”

Council members want a system in which a vicious dog can be picked up anytime day or night. But Joliet Township Animal Control typically is not available on nights or weekends.

The mayor, who was at the committee meeting, said later in a speech at Joliet Junior College that he will propose the city take over dog control if it cannot work out an arrangement with the township.

“I plan on presenting the option of the city of Joliet looking to enforce this ordinance itself if we cannot get the proper cooperation from Joliet Township,” O’Dekirk said.

JOLIET – Residents who have faced attacks by vicious dogs demanded on Monday that the city toughen up ordinances they said now leave neighbors vulnerable to attacks.

They included Greg Hidlebaugh, who shot one of two pit bulls who were attacking him, his wife and their dog Jan. 15 in the Timbers Edge Villas subdivision.

Hidlebaugh and other residents from the subdivision said the same two dogs have repeatedly attacked or chased people in the subdivision, and nothing has been done to stop them.

“The city police come out. Animal Control is called. Nothing gets done,” Hidlebaugh said. “This is an ongoing thing, and nothing gets done.”

The residents’ comments added some urgency to the Joliet City Council Legislative and Land Use Committee’s review of the city’s vicious dog ordinance Monday, which started out as a matter of clarifying language in the ordinance without making major changes.

Seven different residents spoke out about personal experiences dealing with vicious dogs.

“We live in a nice community, and everyone’s walking around with sticks in their hands,” said Tina Magro, another Timbers Edge Villas resident.

Hidlebaugh pointed out one of his neighbors in the audience, a 70-year-old man who was chased into his house by the two pit bulls one day when he went to get his newspaper.

“Now he carries a baseball bat with him because of those dogs,” Hidlebaugh said.

Bob and Doreen Swanson told of their experience with Rottweilers that were allowed to run loose in their neighborhood on North Reed Street in 2014. Bob Swanson said there were attacks in September, November and December before the city held a hearing in January to address the issue.

“There’s a huge gap in time,” Swanson said.

Among ideas discussed at the meeting were:

• Increasing fees and fines charged to owners of vicious dogs;

• Setting up procedures to ensure that dogs that attack people are seized;

• Creating a vicious dog registry that would list the addresses where they live on the city’s website.

Committee Chairman Terry Morris said the vicious dog ordinance would become “a top priority,” and the committee would meet again at a date to be determined in February to consider what should be done next.

2016 Dog Bite Fatality: Woman Killed by Pet Dog in Perquimans County, North Carolina

woman killed by pit bull dog
Suzanne Story, 36, was killed by a female pit bull-mix given to her a week earlier.

Advertised as “Pit Bull”
UPDATE 02/10/16: 13News Now interviewed Story’s stepfather Randy Brown. He said that she saw a newspaper ad about a “female pit bull” that was placed by someone in Virginia. The “off-loaders,” who offered the dog for free, drove to Story’s home in Perquimans County and delivered the dog that would violently attack and kill her a week later. The off-loaders told her the dog was gentle and good with children. Brown thinks the off-loaders knew the dog was dangerous.

“I think they had a problem with the dog and didn’t know how to handle it, and they were just trying to get rid of it, and they did.” – Randy Brown

Story’s neighbor, Jonathan Nash, told 13News Now he was concerned the first time he saw the dog. “I saw her walking the dog. The dog was really pulling her and she was struggling to maintain control from her driveway to her front door.” He added, “I started to worry about my little one. If the dog gets out, what is he going to do?” Nash said. Family members say Story was cleaning the dog’s crate when the animal attacked her. He sister was there, but could not stop the attack.

Brown vowed to find the off-loaders of the dog with the help of an attorney. Yet the whole situation is extremely sketchy — seems doubtful they will be easy to track down. However, they did place an advertisement, we hope in a paid newspaper, leaving a credit card information trail. God help anyone who agrees to take a pit bull free of charge whose owners drive across state lines to dump at your door. Story leaves behind two daughters ages 15 and 17-years old. We pray for them both.

02/10/16: Died While in Helicopter
Perquimans County, NC – A North Carolina woman is dead after being viciously attacked by her pet dog, described as a pit bull-type dog. Perquimans County Sheriff Eric Tilley said the attack occurred about 1:00 pm Wednesday in the 1200 block of Snug Harbor Road. Her injuries were so extreme, a helicopter from Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Virginia was sent to airlift her to the hospital. The victim, Suzanne Story, 36, died as the helicopter was landing, Sheriff Tilley said.

Only Had Dog for a Week

On the 13News Now Facebook page post, they state, “The woman’s mother said her daughter got the dog about a week ago after seeing an ad in a newspaper that she was good around small children. We’re working to get more information…” As far as the breed mixture goes 1.) It will be interesting to see what the newspaper ad said, and 2.) There certainly appears to be olde English bulldogge, pit bull and Johnson or Scotty-type American bulldog; all dangerous gripper breeds.

The victim’s stepfather, Randy Brown also of Hertford, posted on his Facebook page about an hour ago, “MY stepdaughter got killed today by a pit. The people that raised this dog need to be held responsible, because they lied about the nature of this dog. I will pressure the issue. Randy Brown.” Suzanne Story was the mother of two. Her Facebook photo album shows a variety of pet cats, dogs and other animals, as well as pit bull awareness memes. She was very animal friendly.

In 2012, a 10-month old boy was fatally attacked by a family pit bull-mix in Perquimans County.

Toledo police officer – pit bulls are frequently shot during drug raids because pit bulls are encountered more frequently in drug raids than any other dog breed. Supreme Court of Ohio – Toledo v. Tellings (2007)

Supreme Court of Ohio

The trial court cited the substantial evidence supporting its conclusion that pit bulls, compared to other breeds, cause a disproportionate amount of danger to people. The chief dog warden of Lucas County testified that: (1) when pit bulls attack, they are more likely to inflict severe damage to their victim than other breeds of dogs; (2) pit bulls have killed more Ohioans than any other breed of dog; (3) Toledo police officers fire their weapons in the line of duty at pit bulls more often than they fire weapons at people and all other breeds of dogs combined; (4) pit bulls are frequently shot during drug raids because pit bulls are encountered more frequently in drug raids than any other dog breed. The trial court also found that pit bulls are “found largely in urban settings where there are crowded living conditions and a large number of children present,” which increases the risk of injury caused by pit bulls.

The evidence presented in the trial court supports the conclusion that pit bulls pose a serious danger to the safety to citizens. The state and the city have a legitimate interest in protecting the citizens from the degree of danger posed by this breed of domestic dog.
