Jul 31, 2017 Aggressive Joliet Pit Bull Nearly Attacks Two Children

Joliet - A father was luck to be able to protect his children from a loose, aggressive pit bull. The pit bull owner’s was identified and his name and photo were published online in an apparent attempt to deter the massive number of Joliet residents with pit bulls from letting their pit bulls attack innocents.  So far, it is not working. Joliet needs a ban and it needs a ban more than most places.

Jul 27, 2017 Lee County Pit Bulls Repeatedly Attack Dogs, Nothing Done

Lee County - "Been having problems with the neighbors pits - we live in the country - Lee County Illinois - twice my dog has been attacked by those damn pits and the second time required multiple stitches and drains.  My dog weighs 95 lbs!

Animal control has told the neighbor several times to control his dogs and he won't.  Lee County states attorney told us that we need to hire a lawyer to handle the neighbor!

Seriously!!! He and his dogs are the problem here and WE nee to spend money on an attorney to try and get protection!

The sheriff says call animal control - animal control says there is't anything on the books in Illinois that helps us with this situation - and - there aren't ANY ordinances regarding dogs in this county!!

What a joke! So we have to live in fear of his wandering pits and no one will help us!"

Jul 20, 2017 Chicago Pit Bull Attacks Two at Dog Park: $500 REWARD

Chicago River North - A stupid young woman took her pit bull to a dog park and allowed it to attack two dogs in separate attacks.  The first attack was on a husky which left two puncture wounds and a terrified husky.

Idiot pit bull owner doing what they always do with their pit bull attacks
The second attack was on a corgi which got picked up by the neck and shaken like a ragdoll.  Photos show the pit bull owner stood there like a stuffed nitwit doing nothing.  The corgi owner couldn't help either.  It was a brave third woman who actually saved the corgi from the pit bull's grip.  She punched the pit bull in the ribs three times and then quickly removed the corgi from the dog park.  She must have known that pit bulls ALWAYS go back to the attack after they are initially unlocked from their prey.

The corgi's owner, hampered by an unbelievable degree of political correctness, didn't leave the dog park after witnessing the first attack to protect his dog; he didn't tell the stupid young woman to leave to protect his dog; nope, he approached her and began talking to her and when he heard screaming, he knew it was his dog (because he'd led the poor corgi to the pit bull).

Mr. Unbelievably-Bad-Judgment doesn't want the pit bull "to get into trouble,"  but he offered a $500 reward for anyone who can lead him to the pit bull's owner who must have skipped off.  He doesn't want her to pay the $1,000 vet bill or to have her vicious pit bull put down.  He just wants to raise her awareness and perhaps convince her to get the pit bull "rehabilitated" (that isn't a real thing) and to perhaps not go to the dog park with her mauler if that's ok with her.  (I want to know how someone with poor judgment to that incredible degree is able to have that much money to throw away.)

What should happen is that pit bull should be deemed dangerous after two attacks and the pit bull should be put down and the pit bull owner fined.  That would be a service to the community Mr. Unbelievably-Bad-Judgment because if you don't report the bite, the next victim will be at square one, and will not be able to get that mauler out of the neighborhood.

Jul 24, 2017 Chicago Pit Bull Attacks Maltese

Chicago - A pit bull attacked a maltese named Diamond while she was on her leash taking a walk.  Her injuries were severe, so her family started a GoFundMe page for her.

ILLINOIS -- Please Help Our dog diamond ❤️

On the morning of Wednesday July 19, 2017 Diamond our family's beloved dog got attacked by a pit bull as my mother was taking her out for her daily walk.

Diamond (or as we call her poochie) lost a lot of blood and was wounded severely, she has two deep wounds in the stomach and a fractured spinal cord.

She requires medication and daily visits to the vet to clean her incisions. As you may know the Vet bills are extremely high and only keep getting higher.

If you find it in your heart to help us with what ever you can we really appreciate it. It hurts us so much to see her suffer the way she is
Our girl Diamond has been in the family for the past 10 years and has brought us nothing but happiness. Please help us get our dog better.

Jul 10, 2017 Quincy Pit Bull Used as a Weapon By Owner

Quincy - Charges have been filed against a Quincy man who was arrested Saturday after he allegedly let his pit bull bite another man.

Kerry D. Talburt II, 21, was charged Monday in Adams County Circuit Court with home invasion, aggravated battery, reckless conduct, criminal trespass of a residence and two counts of obstructing justice.
Charging documents say Talburt struck the other man by putting his thumb in one of his eyes and allowed the pit bull to bite him. They also allege he provided false information to police.

The Quincy Police Department said officers were called to 1005 Jersey on a report of a 30-year-old who was bitten by a dog in the face. Police said Talburt got into an altercation with his downstairs neighbor and his dog got loose and bit the man in the face.

The man who was bitten was taken to Blessing Hospital for treatment. The dog was taken to the city's animal shelter for quarantine.

Judge Amy Lannerd advised Talburt that he faces six to 30 years in prison if he is convicted of home invasion, a Class X felony. He also faces the possibility of consecutive sentences if convicted of the other charges.

Talburt will return to court July 24.

He is being held in the Adams County Jail on $20,000 bond.
