Nov 02, 2013 Chicago Animal Control Worker Seriously Injured In Pit Bull Attack

UPDATE: WGN reports that the woman, age 47, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious-to-critical condition after she was bitten several times about 9:35 a.m. at Animal Care and Control headquarters, 2741 S. Western Avenue, said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Chief Juan Hernandez.
UPDATE: The Chicago Tribune did finally report the story and included background information showing that pit bull bites are disproportionately high in Chicago.  They asked a CACC representative if they have special handling procedures for pit bulls.  The answer is no.
UPDATE: It is truly bizarre that an attack this severe that was initially reported  has no follow up reporting.  An anonymous commenter on a Chicago crime blog who seems to know details of what happened, left this comment:
Let us all just say a prayer for her, the dog tried to attack another worker and she saved her co-worker. She may lose her and and part of her arm. Please send positive thoughts her way. Thank you!
So, this woman is a hero who may lose body parts, but neither her story nor her condition is worth an update because the media is biased towards pit bulls and covers up pit bull attacks?
