Aug 08, 2017 Springfield Pit Bulls Seriously Maul Sleeping 3-year-old Girl

Springfield - Three-year-old Mirra Kay Neal was napping when two pit bulls she had known and played with all her life seriously mauled her in a completely unprovoked attack requiring 7 hours of surgery.  The pit bulls inflicted 82 lacerations with over 52 to just her face.

The pit bulls have been put down.  They were owned by a long-time friend of Mirra’s father.  A facebook page was set up for her where her parents admonished commenters to not put down pit bulls.

At least this attack was reported.  That is a big thing in Illinois where the media usually won’t even report pit bull attacks.  A fatal attack, probably committed by a pit bull, in Quincy this year has been completely swept under the rug.  This is an extreme disservice to the citizens of Illinois.

Apparently, Joliet is attempting to name and shame irresponsible pit bull owners in a vain attempt to curb their massive pit bull attack problem instead of doing the right thing, which is to ban pit bulls in Joliet.
