May 15, 2012 Pit bull (that inflicted serious injury on owner) dies after being Tasered by police

Interesting note:  I added the part of the headline in parentheses.  We in human centric communities are used to seeing the serious injury sustained by a human emphasized over the death of the 2 time mauling pit bull that caused it even if the victim is also the idiot owner (the pit lived with the victim but was technically owned by the victim's son's girlfriend, HALEY ALEXIS PEKALA).
Roselle – Roselle police officers responded about 9 p.m. on May 8 to a home the 500 block of Rodenburg Road for report of a woman who had been bit by a dog, according to a release. Police knew of the dog from a previous bite report.

The American Staffordshire terrier had severely bitten a 55-year-old woman in the left leg inside the home, the release said. She was taken to Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village where she underwent emergency surgery.
