Mar 26, 2015 Oswego Pit Bull Attacks for the Third Time

Oswego - A pit bull escaped from its home on Jenna Circle and attacked a dog.  The pit bull has attacked twice before and the city attorney will “go forward with an aggressive prosecution to see if we can get that dog removed in one form or the other from the residence.”

“Dave Dillow, who lives on Kathleen Circle, also in Lakewood Creek, told the board that his dog was one of the two dogs that were attacked by the pit bull Saturday.

Dillow said the incident left his dog with four canine teeth marks in its chest, which required treatment by a veterinarian Saturday evening.

He added that it was "bad enough" his dog was bitten in the incident and expressed concern that his two daughters could have been the victims instead. He noted that one of his daughters was outside playing at the time his dog was attacked by the pit bull.”

“Board member Steve Jungermann also expressed concern.

"With that pit bull-type of dog it only takes one time for something serious to happen," he said.”

Oswego - “Police responded to the area on Willowwood Drive near Burr Oak Drive for a call of a dog bite with a possible dog-kill, Police Chief Jeff Burgner said.

He said three dogs had gotten loose from a residence, one of which attacked another dog that was being walked. The other two dogs were not directly involved in the attack, according to police.

Burgner added that Miceli's daughter had her dog on a leash when the dog ran up and attacked her and Rocky.

"It appears from what we gathered one of the people at the residence had the door open to go inside and the dogs got out," Burgner said.

Miceli says that his daughter scooped up her dog but the pit bull bit her causing her to drop Rocky. He added that the pit bull then killed their dog. Before dragging it away.

"Everything happened so fast. I tried to take the dog from her but she was holding him too tight," he recalled. "Rocky came loose and he didn't even put up a fight.

Miceli said that his daughter was bit in the right elbow and wrist but not seriously injured.

"Physically she is going to be OK. We got her to the ER and she was treated and X-rayed. To the best of my knowledge the dog was current on its vaccinations including rabies," he said, adding that he is more worried about the psychological effect of the attack on his daughter.”
