New Orleans, LA - A gruesome pit bull attack on Wednesday in the New Orleans, Louisiana area resulted in the victim losing both arms, an eye, an ear, and a part of her scalp. Three of the adult dogs attacked 54-year-old Linda Henry in her home where she lived with the dogs owner, her boyfriend. When Westwego police officers responded to the call, all four adult pit bulls attacked or lunged at them, forcing the officers to shoot them. A litter of puppies was also removed from the home.
As of Thursday, the victim was still reported hospitalized in critical condition.
Its the worst dog bite Ive ever seen in 25 years of police work, said Westwego Police Chief Dwayne Munch.
It was the second bold attack by pit bulls on unsuspecting victims in only four days. An attack on Sunday, which was captured on surveillance video, showed a pit bull running across an intersection in the Bronx in New York City in order to strike and maul a little girl described in different reports as being age four or age six.
Several nearby men rushed in to pull the dog off the tiny child, and she reportedly survived with only minor injuries.
You can watch that video below, but be warned. Its disturbing and not least because the reporter was told that the owner of the dog was ticketed but will be allowed to keep the animal.
