Although many owners dispute the fact that pit bull breeds are dangerous animals, data seems to be proving them wrong. In addition, a woman from Munice, Indiana has just been released from the hospital following a vicious dog bite attack. Furthermore, the 83-year-old woman suffered facial injuries, which required 60 stitches.
The elderly woman was attacked on Wednesday at the 3200 block of East Chippewa the owner’s pit bull mix dog began to attack her mother. Likewise, the attack began when the mother bent over to pick up groceries, and the dog latched onto her cheek, ripping off part of her skin.
The bite was so severe when police arrived, part of the woman’s face near her right saw was gone. The 75-pound dog named, Cesar was taken to a nearby shelter for a 10-day quarantine, and will be euthanized thereafter.
