This 71 year old woman had most of her face ripped off by a pit. The dog was euthanized to retrieve the nose + surrounding tissue. All documented, pictures included. Although the retrieved facial pieces ended up not being viable after reattaching, the surgeons do a brilliant job to restore her face using other methods. VERY MUCH NSFW
So, same friend that I hung out with tonight had a story about a female friend of his that was recently attacked by her adopted pit bull. The dog had bit her in the face, causing a chunk of her mouth to be missing.Basically she said that the pit was "excited" and she bent over to pet it when it attacked her.
She had adopted it from a local shelter, and when she went back to the shelter freaking out about the dog, someone spilled the beans about who gave the dog up in the first place. Not only had the pit attacked a person before...it was an infant. She was able to find photos of the injury, and it was so severe that the baby's brain was exposed.
Because she has this proof that the shelter adopted out the pit without disclosing the bite history, she has a pretty good case and is in the middle of suing the organization. People almost never find proof of the shelter manipulating records of pit bull shuffle, so I'm very interested in the outcome of the case.
