Chicago - A protest against vicious dogs was held on July 30 in Little Village. The protest was organized by local activist Raul Montes jr.
“Somebody’s gotta bring it up,” said Montes Jr. in reference to this problem. “I work in this community and some of these people were very upset, like my neighbor, whose dog was killed by a pit bull. There’s a lot of pit bulls running around. They’re vicious dogs and I think there should be accountability, liability for these animals.”

Buffalo Grove - Cody a three year old schnauzer-poodle mix was attacked by a pit bull at the Happy Tails dog park in Buffalo Grove and received severe cuts that were treated at a nearby animal hospital.
The author of the Buffalo Grove Countryside article tries to suggest that the fact that the scared smaller dog provoked a savage attack by barking at the pit bull when this is obviously normal communication among dogs that should not meet with a savage attack.
Evidently, when the pit bull attacked, other dogs joined in and also attacked poor Cody. Cody's owner has been going to the park for years and is well known there, but neither she nor the other frequenters had ever seen the pit bull owner or the pit bull before.
A horrified neighbor to the dog park said she's never seen a fight before, let alone anything remotely approaching the savagery of the pit bull's attack before, after years of going to the dog park with her golden retriever.
For the month of July, Buffalo Grove police department said they had only one bite report - the one on the pit bull that bit Cody.
