Austin Texas, Three pit bulls have been sentenced by a judge to be euthanized after they were the victims of a vicious dog attack.
Chris Grant the owner of the pit bulls had been training his dogs, Leo, Dawn and Gorgo in a parking lot earlier this month, the dogs secured to the back of his SUV, when a man with his dog running loose, entered the same parking lot. The loose dog spotted Grant’s dogs and charged.
“The owner of the dog couldn’t keep his dog under control,” Grant stated. “It kept attacking us.”
“Instead of pulling his dog out of our reach, he repeatedly punched and kicked my dogs, in attempt to stop my dogs from fighting back.” Grant went on to state. “I waved someone down and told them to call 911.”
Grant continued, “The owner untied Dawn’s leash while I was separating Gorgo and the loose dog, and he tied her to a tree. When I looked up, he was kicking and punching her while she was tied up.”
“I finally separated Gorgo and the off-leash dog, and his dog started attacking me.” Grant stated. “And finally he got his dog under control.”
The next part of Grant’s statement details the beginning of the discrimination he and his dogs would go through, that ended with the judge’s final ruling Friday.
“The ambulance and police finally showed up, walking right past me bleeding, lying on the ground and having an asthma attack, to treat the person who claimed he had been attacked by a pit bull.”
“An Animal Control officer came out to the scene. He said he was taking my animals because they were off leash during the time of dog fight. I corrected him, and he said he was going to take them anyway.”
“Meanwhile, the dog that bit me went straight home and wasn’t issued the state-required quarantine until 7 days after the incident. In fact, it wouldn’t have been issued at all if I hadn’t requested it.”
Grant ended his statement with, “My bite report was lost.”
Two of Grant’s dogs are certified NSAR service dogs.
The media is using the name “pit bull” to describe most of the dog attacks that are making headline news. There are over 100 different bull breeds, not to mention the designer “pit bulls” that breeders threw to gather to get a meaner looking and acting animal, that would appeal to dog fighting and drug cartel buyers.
Any older pit bull breeder will tell you “A true pit bull will not bite a human; they have been selectively bred not too!”
Chris grant is asking everyone to please sign the petition: City of Austin, TX: Stop the destruction of 3 pit bulls (2 of which are certified NSAR emotional support animals) wrongly ordered to death.
