YONKERS, N.Y. – Say what you will about different breeds of dogs. There are those who will defend to the ends of the earth that Pit Bull dogs have a place and then there are those who want nothing to do with them.
A 5 yr old boy in Yonkers, NY is being treated today and will probably have to have continuing surgeries after his aunt’s Pit Bull bit off his penis. The young boy was spending the weekend of Nov. 10th at his grandparents house. When he tried to get into bed with his 13 year old aunt and the 6 year old dog, it attacked him.
The grandmother and his uncle have been charged with having an unlicensed dangerous dog and the child’s mother has been charged with allowing a dog to commit a nuisance. In the criminal complaint it states the boy “was savagely bitten by the pit bull, suffering severe bite wounds, lacerations and a severed penis.”
The dog has since been put down. Thoughts and opinions are welcome.
