RUSIN stood by and watched as Deisel mauled his mother, and he assaulted  an alarmed passerby who called police.

According to police, RUSIN's mother was taken to the hospital by her sister.

Amazingly and bizarrely, animal control was not called to control and confiscate the dog.  Instead, police told RUSIN's girlfriend to take the dog to Animal Welfare League even though they had judged Deisel to be "aggressive and unapproachable."
