Sep 19, 2014 Chicago Pit bulls attack 5 people and kill 1 cat in 5 months and NOTHING is done

Chicago - Veteran reporter Mike Parker* reports that five people have been attacked and one pet cat has been killed over a 5 month period in Chatham, a quiet southside Chicago neighborhood, and exactly nothing has been done despite repeated reports by neighborhood residents.

The most recent victim, Roland Hayes, was sent to the hospital with bites to his arms while trying to save his cat.  Hayes' cat died.  There have been five attacks on people in the last 5 months by the same pit bulls, and only after the most recent attack did animal control see fit to take action and, using Montgomery co. Ohio's technique, post a "sternly worded post-it note"** on the pit bull owners' door.  Residents say they've been reporting the attacks all along and since nothing is being done, they can't allow their children out to play or walk their dogs.

*Mike Parker has been reporting so long he remembers the days when reporters followed up on tips and investigated out on the street to get a real story.  Thank you Mike Parker!
