    Default Mailman Speaks Out About Pit Bull Attack

    Saw this and just had to share...



    Two pit bull mix dogs wait in quarantine after attacking a Yuba City mailman on Monday.
    The victim who would like to see the dogs put to sleep, but that decision is out of his hands.
    A rough day on the job for Yuba City mailman Robert Brown.
    On Monday, two pit bull-lab mixes attacked him.

    Brown says, “Two pit bulls knocked down the screen and started, just attacking. I went through two cans of pepper spray, got in a couple good kicks to the mouth.”

    As Brown recalls it, the attack lasted about five minutes.
    “I can remember being bit at least 15 times.”

    Even as he ran down the driveway, Brown says the dogs continued to attack him in the street.
    It wasn't until a neighbor threw him a chair to fight off the dogs that he was able to get away and call for help.

    Neighbors flocked to the scene.
    Some watched in fear, others stepped in to help.
    Neighbor Shelly Hayes says, “I ran over there and threw this chair to him, then the dog grabbed me. I ran home and called 911.”
    Brown was pretty beat up.
    Cuts, scars and bite marks cover his legs, making it difficult to walk without a cane.
    Even his uniform was destroyed.
    We tried to speak with the owner about the incident, but no one was home.
    Sutter County Animal Control has been to the home before, when the dogs were being kept on a chain in the yard.
    But no violent incidents have happened before this.
    Supervisor of Sutter County Animal Control Cheryl Bohannan says, “The dogs were impounded for public safety. They’re bred to be aggressive towards dogs but not people.”
    Animal control will have the final say in the fate of the dogs, but Brown thinks they should be put down for the safety of the neighborhood.
    Brown says, “If it was someone else, a small kid, someone who doesn’t have a lot of fight in them, it gets me.”
    The dogs' behaviors are being monitored and Sutter County Animal Control will make their decision at the end of the 10 day quarantine

    Hi Belle Unfortunately due to idiot (for a nicer word), irresponsible owners APBT's do attack however a lot of ACTUAL APBT attacks are on animals i.e. other dogs because they were bred to fight other dogs not people and once they came out the ring some of them actually went home to live as a family dog between fights. However because of BYB's and people who own them purely for ego they are becoming more and more vicious in both temperament and environment/training regards.

    Also another problem is HOW MANY there actually are (unfortunately not so many purebreds ) especially cross breeds. And due to the APBTs standard, which is so widely ranged, they are commonly incorrectly identified. Some are large dogs largely built whereas some are medium sized but very lithe (as my girl is )

    At the end of the day people don't car if it was an APBT or not, they just want their mugs in the limelight
