ORANGE, Calif - A 91-year-old woman mauled by her great-grandson’s pit bull was in critical condition Monday, with both arms amputated at the elbow, officials said.

Story Link

Ruby Sharum and her granddaughter were putting away groceries Friday night when the dog growled and then lunged at Sharum.

Next-door neighbor Shelbi Moore said Sharum’s granddaughter pounded on her door, screaming that her grandmother was being attacked. Moore said she walked into her neighbor’s kitchen after calling 911 and saw the pit bull hovering over the elderly woman with blood stains on the floor.

This is just terrible. Pit bulls are outlawed in most states and countys, but its the people that train these dogs that should be in trouble.

That is just incredibly sad. I was attacked by two pomeranians tonight and this post got me thinking that if you could put the mind of a pomeranian in the body of a pit bull, then you would have a truly deadly breed of dog.
