May 22, 2015 CBS Chicago Investigative Reporter Follows Up on Pit Bull Left in CACC Van

Chicago - WBBM Newsradio investigative reporter Steve Miller gives an important update on a pit bull that was left in a CACC van for 5 days after an adoption event at a Blackhawks game.  The pit bull named Monkey wasn't doing well at the event so she was put back in the van.  All the other dogs were adopted and the CACC worker dropped off the van forgetting the pit bull.

It was originally said that the pit bull had no food or water for 5 days and now they are saying the pit bull had "hardly any" food or water.  Also, CACC gave the pit bull to another rescue that says the pit bull is gaining weight and she's not ready to adopt yet.  She needs weeks more training before she is adoptable.

Steve Miller's investigative update ends with other similar incidents at CACC, specifically two other dogs that were killed by CACC.

Great.  Now here is a list of all the pit bull attack victims in Chicago we have had no update on:

The little boy's attack was not reported at all originally.  Only when it looked like the pit bull might be declared vicious (horrors!) did it become newsworthy in Cook county.  No update as to whether the pit bull was actually declared vicious  or if it was put down. And no update on how the victim and his family are doing.

We don't know how the victim fared and we don't know if CACC changed its policy about pit bulls at all.

But we do know that Monkey will be adopted by hook or by crook.
