The elderly couple were literally helpless as the dog, some sort of bully mix breed known for aggressiveness, tossed their helpless pet dog between locked jaws intent on killing! The elderly gentleman, trying to protect his pet at all costs grabbed the attacking bully around the ribcage to try and persuade this beast to release the whimpering little dog and indeed this is what happened but now the man himself was bitten by the attacking demon!
A passing resident saw the commotion and heard the whimpering of the wee injured puppy mixed with the yells of the elderly folks who found themselves in a terrible fright. This good Samaritan, without heed for his own safety, intervened by grabbing a large stick and hitting the bulldog hard!
These sorts of dogs are known for their ruthlessness and even a sharp blow didn't deter the raging dog who was now clamping his jaws back into the helpless injured dog! The fellow with the stick hit the dog again harder but still without result! Then, from a nearby house ran a man who apparently was the guardian of the dog (the owners didn't seem to be about and had seemingly engaged this chap to look after this beast!) and he held the attacking dog while the elderly couple tried to free their pet from the grasp of those sharp fangs to no avail.
The good Samaritan then warned the dogs guardian that he was going to start really hitting the dog's caretaker said to go ahead as there seemed no other choice to prevent this dog from continuing his damage on the small pet dog. And so he began smacking the bully dog on the head and the snout attempting to convince the dog to let go!
To make matters worse, at this point, an onlooker approached and saw a man beating a dog with a stick and started screaming at the Samaritan to stop! She yelled he was a crazy cruel man! The elderly couple tried to explain that they were trying to save their loving pet but this person seemed unable to grasp this and continued yelling to stop hurting the bulldog adding more chaos to the sad event!
When finally the savage attack was over the elderly gentleman had a bitten hand and held his poor pet doggy in his arms and they both trembled. His wife then explained how she was not so much worried about their pet dog but more about her husband who had undergone open heart surgery only a week before. The couple limped away back home alone with their injured dog held in their arms, whimpering.
That's as much as we know about this event...did the dog survive the attack? Did anyone file a formal complaint against the dog who savagely and ruthlessly pounced on the pet dog?
Such acts of violence are sickening and it is unbelievable that such dogs are even allowed to be bred; many provinces and states actually ban the ownership of such dogs so to see one such dog running loose in our town is shocking!
There are small children and many elderly people in the area who have pets and suddenly they may all be in danger of attack. We can only hope that something will be done about this dog before another attack takes place.
A recent survey of the scene proved that finding the dog wasn't difficult; one only had to stop and listen for the incessant barking to be able to pinpoint the culprit. Hopefully the authorities will be notified of this attack by the victims and the dog who is responsible for this savage attack will be put down.
