When Williams arrived, the dog, a pitbull-bullmastiff mix that was attached to a long leash, charged him, biting and latching onto his pants, Wadinski said. The dog's teeth didn't break Williams' skin, but it did leave him with a bruise, Deputy Chief Bryan Hilts said. "The attack was pretty sudden," Hilts said. "The officer is going to have to respond with whatever is available on his belt. Since this dog actually made contact with him, using his firearm would be the recommended intervention option." A LETHAL COMBINATION THAT THIS NUTTER WANTS TO USE PEPPER SPRAY ON????????

http://www.hudsonstarobserver.com/event/article/id/36736/ Days after his wife of 60 years suddenly died, Alan Stewart got a late Sunday night call recently saying his son was nearly mauled to death by his pet dog and was undergoing hours of overnight life-saving surgery. Jim Stewart, who grew up in River Falls and was a 21-year Hudson police officer before retiring in 1998, had most of the flesh from his face ripped off by Igor, his 120-pound American bull dog (closely related to pit bulls). Alan said Igor is the same breed of dog that Jim had for nine years before he was put down for cancer. Jim then found Igor on the Internet from a Texas animal rescue group. He picked up the dog last June in Minneapolis. WANNA BET THE DOG PASSED THE TEMPERAMENT TEST PER THE "RESCUE" GROUP"?

http://www.wsaw.com/home/headlines/84510767.html Another dog in Wausau is shot, after an officer says the pit bull attacked him. The officer says it happened when he was following up on a domestic disturbance early Monday morning. Luckily, the officer was not seriously injured. The Wausau deputy chief says the attack happened at about 1 yesterday morning on Prospect Avenue, when officers were bringing an intoxicated woman home. He says the woman started arguing with someone she lived with, and that's when their dog ran out of the house. The deputy chief says the dog began walking toward the officer, growling at him. That's when he says the dog jumped at the officer, biting him on the left forearm. "The officer pulled his arm and got it away from the dog. The dog then began circling the officer, continuing to growl and bare his teeth, at which point the officer discharged one round from his sidearm, striking the do in the abdomen," says Deputy Chief Bryan Hilts.The gun shot did not kill the dog. It was taken to a veterinary clinic for treatment, but the vet could not work on the animal because she said it was too aggressive. The homeowner then took the dog home, its condition is not known. The case has been handed over to the city attorney to determine the animal's fate and if any criminal charges will be filed.One of the residents was arrested after the attack for violating her probation, stemming from OWI charges and driving with a revoked license. She hasn't been charged yet. The deputy chief says the officer was justified for shooting the animal. HOPE THERE ARE NO CHILDREN IN THAT HOUSE. CAN ANYONE SAY CHARGES FOR NEGLECT IN NOT RENDERING MEDICAL CARE FOR THAT PIT?

http://www.lacrossetribune.com/news/local/article_54c42334-323b-11df-aefa-001cc4c002e0.html A pit bull attacked another dog and bit a woman Monday after escaping from a North Side yard.Dog sitter Jacob Rossing told La Crosse police he tied the dog, named Zues, to a motorcycle he was working on behind 1401 Livingston St., but the knot loosened and allowed Zues to charge a nearby dog walking with its two owners, according to reports.It took three people to pull the black-and-white pit bull off the other dog's neck, reports stated. Zues bit one woman's fingers in the attack, reports said.Rossing, 26, was given a $164 citation for having a dog at large and is due April 21 in La Crosse Municipal Court. The pit bull's owner, Beth Richards, was cited $252.20 for failing to license the dog and also will be in court April 21.Richards, 17, had to house the dog with Rossing because family members refused to let her keep the animal, she said. This is the first time Zues has attacked a dog or person, she said."I told him he (Zues) does not get along with other dogs," she said. "He doesn't like other dogs. He was attacked by a yellow Lab when he was a puppy."Zues is vaccinated and quarantined at Rossing's home. BUT THE PIT HAS TO LIVE WITH OTHER DOGS IN SOCIETY, DUMBASS.

http://www.channel3000.com/news/23130780/detail.html GRAND MARSH, Wis. -- A vicious dog attack in Adams County last week has some rural residents on alert.The attack happened last Tuesday afternoon in Grand Marsh, which is located just southeast of Adams. Kerry Geitzen, the victim in this attack, said she is afraid to go outside now because of what happened to her. She said she hopes to warn others that some very dangerous dogs might be on the loose.Geitzen said she only had a few seconds to yell at some unknown dogs on her property to leave last week. She said she yelled, "Go home!" -- a stern warning that seemed to have little effect on the animals. Seconds later, she was on the ground being attacked."It came at me. I threw my hand up and it grabbed my hand -- and that was the initial attack and he ripped the skin back," Geitzen said.She said she has never seen the dogs before and she hopes to never see them again. She literally will be scarred for life. She suffered a wound on her hand that required stitches."They kept attacking my arms and my legs," Geitzen said. "And I knew they were trying to get me down and I knew I was going to be in trouble."Adams County Sheriff Darrell Renner said he's doing all he can to get to the bottom of what happened last week."The big concern is not just what they did to this lady, but anyone else who might be victims of dogs like that," Sheriff Renner said.A cage is now in place to try and trap at least one of the dogs. Deputies have also visited nearly 60 homes in the area, looking for clues and warning residents. So far, the dogs are no where to be found, authorities said.Geitzen said she's lucky to be alive. She said she now thinks twice before she leaves her home, but she also worries about who could become the next victim."There are kids waiting for the school bus in the morning and getting off the bus at night," Geitzen said. "There are people starting to do their yard work during the day."Geitzen's ex-husband had to shoot his rifle to get the dogs to let go of her. For that reason, they think the dogs were scared off and won't return. The worry though is for others who might come across the two dogs, described as a white pitbull/boxer mix and a black German Shephard/lab mix.Authorities said that if anyone sees animals matching those descriptions in the Adams County area, they should stay away and call 911. ALL THOSE BITING MACHINES ROLLED INTO ONE.

http://www.nbc15.com/home/headlines/90949929.html from Sun Prairie Police:After having multiple officers spend more than 40 hours investigating the report of a stray dog biting a two year old boy, it was determined that a family dog had bitten the boy and the mother lied to protect the dog and dog’s owner. Investigators arrested and jailed Laveina L. Varese DOB 06-28-88, from Sun Prairie, the mother of the child, on 3 counts of obstructing after it was determined that she had provided false information during this investigation. The story had been made up to protect the pit bull dog and its owner, her sister, after it bit the 2 year old child in the face.The community of Sun Prairie was on alert due to the report of a stray dog attacking the child unprovoked. Until the dog could be located there was a concern that it could have been a carrier of rabies. The dog has now been quarantined for observation by the Dane County Humane Society.The dog’s owner, Nalaine R. Varese DOB 11-21-79, from Madison, was also cited on multiple charges as a result of this investigation including: dog attack on person, dog license required, open intoxicants in vehicle, display of unauthorized registration, non-registration of motor vehicle, operating after revocation. LIAR IS THE MIDDLE NAME FOR PIT NUTTERS.
