Rantoul - A pit bull-mastiff mix escaped from its home, ran down the street approached a doberman seemingly wanting to play, and then launched an unprovoked, vicious, off-property attack.
The irresponsible pit bull owner wants to keep the mauler in the neighborhood. And the mauler owner's attorney wants people to believe that yelling, "Come get your dog!" provoked the pit bull to attack which would excuse the mauler from being deemed vicious.
Finally an agreement was made in which the owner would take her dog some place else to live - out of Rantoul, endangering pets in another community.
