Jun 27, 2012 Naperville cops probe pit bull attack on boy

Naperville - An attack by a pit bull on Naperville’s southwest side sent a teenage boy to the hospital.
“I remember hearing both boys laughing at first, then something like, ‘Whoa! Whoa! Down! Then the screaming started.”

“The dog ... was growling and attacking the boy and had ahold of his arm and would not let go. The other boy yelled at the dog and tried to pull him off, but the dog kept attacking, and the boy being attacked kept screaming.”
“It was a horrifying experience, and as far as I could tell unprovoked, and I won’t soon forget that boy’s screams,” the resident said.

“I am more concerned about that dog. I think it should be put down, or at the very least removed from the home. It would be a big relief to know the dog is gone.”
