BRIDGEWATER During 40 years as a veterinarian, Dr. Neal Andelman has removed toys and other items from dogs stomachs. But until Thursday, he had never retrieved human body parts, as best the doctor could recall, said Lou Berman, a hospital administrator for the New England Animal Medical Center in West Bridgewater. Thursday afternoon, Andelman operated post mortem on a pit bull that had bitten a Bridgewater woman and swallowed parts of her face. The male pit bull was euthanized and operated upon following a request from the Boston hospital treating the 71-year-old woman, whose face was mauled by the 50-pound dog in the kitchen of her home.

Quite a few mosquitoes though.

it was always a good dog until it ate her face
Chet99, is that you? ;)
Who is Chet99???
An ex-FReeper who posted article after article about pit bulls. I don’t know what happened to him.
The doc has managed the near impossible, he is operating on a good pit bull, a dead one.
I think Chet99 was zotted for pit bull abuse abuse.
Oh, but it's still a good dogie.
This incident is clearly the owner's fault.
Because their are no bad doggies, only bad humans.
I wouldn’t expect this from a pit bull. A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel maybe, but not a pit bull.

Not just posted — BOMBARDED FR with Pit Bull stories. He must have been bitten by one when he was a child since his agenda was clearly to drive the breed off the face of the earth. Of course the threads always descended into all heck breaking loose when pb owners would come to the rescue of their breed. It was usually pretty funny (to me anyway), but I think one time Chet went way over the edge and — Chet no more.
“The neighbors said he was always a sweet, quiet dog that would never hurt anyone.....”
All of his posts were not found by him...other freepers would notify him cause they didn’t want to get into it with pit lovers...I was sorry to see him go, but he got the zot and I don’t think it was from pit posts. It was I think from some Palin posts, but wouldn’t bet more than a quarter on it... I think Jim personally zotted him....its Jims house...
Ah, now I understand your prior post. I have no idea how I double posted. LOL
Many insurance companies won't underwrite homeowner policies if you own a pit bull...gee, I wonder why?
That’s what German Shepherds are for: all the intelligent guard dog, without the neighbor/owner mauling.
That would probably make a lot of people happy...
Did the owner try to give herself the lame excuse that the dog “never did that before” and had always been a “very good dog”?
At least the only person the dog attacked was the owner. Glad she didn’t wind up dead.
What is a 71 year old woman doing with a 50 pound pit bull? As a man, if I was 71 years old, I would not have a pit bull. If I needed to have a dog around it’d be a lot more stable breed. Black lab, yellow lab.
well since we’ve made it impossible to wipe out irresponsible owners and gangbangers, I would say I could live with this breed line (their apparent weapons of choice) being ended.
This is one of those stories where I regret clicking on the link...
Did Chet99 eat somebody’s face?
I’m sure all Chet99 needed was more training.
Stay, Chet. No, stay. Stay, Chet.... down, Chet.... NO, Chet, NO. DON’T DO THAT, CHET.... OW!@J##@, CHET, HELLLPPPP.... AHHHAHAHAHHHHHH!!!!!
I’ll be very disappointed if my German Shepherd ever eats my face.
Face is considered a delicacy to pit bulls. German Shepherds prefer elbows.
One of his pit bulls ate him....
CHET, I mean it! Bad Dog! Oh, he's just playing...
Breed of Peace strikes again.
“Breed of Peace”...lolol! I’m going to borrow that, if you don’t mind.
It didn’t belong to the 71-year-old. She moved in with her daughter, and the dog didn’t take kindly to it:
