Man Bitten By Neighbor’s Dog On Thanksgiving

Posted on November 29th, 2012 No Comments

An aggressive pit bull is responsible for a Thanksgiving Day attack in Wisconsin. A 54-year-old Port Washington man was bringing bags out to his car on Thanksgiving night when he heard loud barking nearby. The man looked up and saw a large pit bull on a leash, and one of his neighbors holding the leash attached to the canine.

The neighbor, a 44-year-old woman, advised the man to stay still due to the fact that her pet had a tendency to bite others. Unfortunately, the pit bull was able to escape from its owner, and lunged for the man in his driveway. The man was knocked to the ground, and the pit bull then proceeded to attack his head and face. The man received injuries to his face, groin, and head as a result of the attack. 

Eventually, the owner of the pit bull was able to regain control of the canine. Paramedics arrived and transported the dog attack victim to a nearby hospital to be treated for his injuries. Doctors stitched up a section of his ear that was damaged due to the attack. The owners of the aggressive canine were identified, and were questioned about the dog’s shots and vaccinations.

It was later learned that the rabies vaccination for the pit bull had expired in November 2011. The dog was quarantined at a Wisconsin Humane Society location, and its owners were charged with owning a dog that was not licensed, and for having a vicious dog.
