Boulder Hill - The reporting on this has been absolutely bizarre. There have been reports and updates mostly about the pit bull. The focus has not been on the fact a woman was seriously mauled. There have been updates on why the pit bull was shot, but scant attention is given the health and well-being of the victim.
On may 15th an American bulldog attacked the mother of its owner inside the mother’s home. The woman grabbed a hammer, but the attack continued outside where the woman collapsed.
Neighbors saw the attack and some of them managed to stop the attack with a baseball bat and a knife. When deputies came, they asked the woman if they could shoot the menacing dog, she said yes, and then they shot it, killing it.
A lot of reporting space is being taken up talking about the deputies justifications for shooting the mauler.
When firefighters came, they saw she was in a lot of pain with injuries to her hands, stomach and feet.
