Chicago - Joseph Finley lost his leg on January 1, 2012 after he was attacked by two pit bulls that escaped their yard. A year later, Finley is still recovering mentally and physically from the attack.
Finley says it has been difficult to overcome a "mental state of not wanting to accept that my leg wasn’t there anymore."
Finley wants to remind people that the recovery from this kind of of devastating attack will take years. He wants to use his experience to call for tougher pit bull legislation in Chicago and Illinois to save others from the devastation and disability he will take years to overcome.
Help Joseph Finley get the word out that Chicago and Illinois need strong pit bull laws:
