A Salisbury police officer shot and killed a pit bull Monday afternoon after the dog attacked a smaller dog and two township residents, and then went after the officer.
A woman and a man suffered several dog bites, and the cockapoo's jaw was broken and skin ripped in a midday frenzy, according to the woman, who owns the cockapoo.
"Me and my dad were bitten up pretty bad," said Tammie Jesperger, 49. "[The pit bull] ripped my dog's throat open. I thought I was in a bloody nightmare.
"I don't know if I'm ever going to be the same. I know my dog isn't."

Salisbury police said they were dispatched to a 911 call in the 1400 block of Pearl Avenue, a neighborhood between Allentown and Fountain Hill.
Dispatchers said they could hear a woman screaming for help in the emergency call.
Police found the woman, who they say had been attacked by a stray, aggressive pit bull in her front yard. A second pit bull was reported in the area, but it was not acting aggressively, police said.
Animal Control was called to round up the dogs. While at the scene, police received a report of a second dog-attack victim, a 73-year-old man.
Jesperger said the man is her father, Bill Tittel.
Both victims were in need of medical assistance and the small dog was critically injured, with broken bones and internal injuries, police said. The dog was taken to the animal hospital for emergency surgery.
Police secured the area to protect other residents, but one of the pit bulls returned and started to aggressively approach two officers. Police shot and killed that pit bull, but the second one never returned.
The owner was identified and police are continuing the investigation. Charges are pending further investigation, police said.
According to Jesperger:
Tittel, her father, had just taken her 25-pound cockapoo, Oreo, for a walk when two pit bulls walked up around noon, and one of them turned on Oreo.
Tittel tried to keep the aggressive pit bull from Oreo, and Jesperger ran outside to help. For 40 minutes, Jesperger and Tittel wrestled with the pit bull.
At one point, Jesperger pulled a plastic stake from the front-yard solar lights and stuck the stake in the pit bull's mouth, momentarily freeing the cockapoo.

Jesperger ran for the house, but the pit bull chased her down.
"He bit me and grabbed my dog again before I could get him in the house, and he dragged him across the yard," she said. "I ran and I jumped on this dog. I was on top of this dog, beating him with a stick.
"He had my dog by the throat and wouldn't let him go. I poked his eyes. He didn't even budge. He just wanted to kill my dog."
After three tries, Jesperger had Oreo in her arms and beat the pit bull to her front door.
When police cars drove up, the two pit bulls were at the door. Jesperger slipped out the back with Oreo, and a police officer rushed her and her badly injured dog to a veterinarian's office in Emmaus.
But after she and the cockapoo were gone, the pit bull attacked a township officer, who fired on the dog.
"The dog was shot five times, three times with a .22 [rifle] and twice with a shotgun," Jesperger said. "He went after the cop and the cop shot it five times because it just wouldn't die. It was like a Cujo."
The other pit bull remained passive throughout the ordeal, she said.
According to Jesperger, police said the pit bulls' owner reported his dogs missing after the mauling.
Oreo, who is 6 years old, had surgery Monday night at the VCA East Penn Animal Hospital in Emmaus, Jesperger said. The cockapoo returned home in bandages Tuesday afternoon.
"He's on a lot of pain meds, and his wounds are pretty nasty," Jesperger said. "He doesn't want anybody near him except for me."
She said the Lehigh County Humane Society notified her that the pit bull that attacked her, her father and Oreo was up to date on its rabies shots.
The aggressive pit bull was a male, appeared to be almost 2 years old and weighed about 70 pounds, she said. The other pit bull was a female, about 6 months old.

Actually that isn't me, I just got to work and 9:30, did you even consider the fact that other people think you're delusional as well? I have no reason to use another name, I work in Ogdensburg and there are 11,000 people that live in this area. Ogdensburg and Massena are only 30 minutes apart, so I'm sure people from Ogdensburg read the Massena Topix as well. Like you said, read the others typing/speaking style and it is nothing close to mine. Just because you and someone else needs to use different names doesn't mean I do it as well. Maybe I should add paranoid to your description.

Cities with Successful Pit Bull Laws; Data Shows Breed-Specific Laws Work
The lives of children, adults, senior citizens, beloved pets, horses, and livestock.
Pit Bull Laws Save Lives
DogsBite.org - Cities and counties in at least 12 states report successful results after enacting a breed-specific law. These states include: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington. The province of Ontario also reports successful results after it's 2005 adoption of a pit bull ban. Pro-pit bull groups frequently say, "BSL doesn't work." The below city and law enforcement officials disagree.
Municipalities that have implemented successful breed-specific pit bull laws, please share your results with DogsBite.org by emailing: [email protected]
Saginaw, Michigan
Population 51,230 | View Ordinance
In November 2012, Saginaw reported a reduction in dog attacks eighteen months after enacting a "Light" BSL ordinance1 requiring owners of the top 5 dangerous dog breeds2 to comply with new regulations.
Eighteen months after Saginaw created its dangerous dog ordinance, put into effect in June 2011, Saginaw City Chief Inspector John Stemple said it has helped to lower the amount of dog attacks in the city.
"It was the government reacting to a problem," Stemple said. "And if you look at the numbers, it's been very effective."
--- snip ---
The ordinance requires residents to register dogs whose breeds are deemed "dangerous" at the City Clerk's office, post a "Dog on premises" sign in the front of their homes and when outdoors, keep their animals either on a leash or within a 4-foot-high fenced area or kennel.
The breeds included in the ordinance are pit bulls, presa canario, bull mastiffs, rottweilers and German shepherds.
Stemple said he has heard from employees at Consumers Energy and the U.S. Postal Service that the signs and tethering rules have made their work safer. The number of reported dog bites fell in 2011 to nine, from 24 in 2009.

1Even a "Light" BSL ordinance yields results!
2The ordinance does not specify dog breeds, instead it states: "Any dog of a breed that appears consistently in the top five (5) of the breeds on credible, analytical listings of "Most Dangerous Dogs" as verified and supplemented by local data and records for Saginaw County." (See: 2011)

In a November 2011, public health statistics published by Global Toronto showed that pit bull bites dropped dramatically after Ontario adopted the Dog Owners Liability Act in 2005, an act that banned pit bulls:
The number of dog bites reported in Toronto has fallen since a ban on pit bulls took effect in 2005, public health statistics show.
A total of 486 bites were recorded in 2005. That number fell generally in the six years following, to 379 in 2010.
Provincial laws that banned 'pit bulls,' defined as pit bulls, Staffordshire terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, American pit bull terriers and dogs resembling them took effect in August 2005. Existing dogs were required to be sterilized, and leashed and muzzled in public.
Bites in Toronto blamed on the four affected breeds fell sharply, from 71 in 2005 to only six in 2010. This accounts for most of the reduction in total bites.(See: Data chart)

In August 2011, San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control, which oversees unincorporated areas and Highland and Yucaipa, reported a 9.6 decrease in dog bites after enacting a pit bull sterilization law in 2010.
The law, approved unanimously by the Board of Supervisors last week, expands upon an ordinance approved last year that requires pit bull owners to spay or neuter their pets.
Supervisor Neil Derry introduced the original proposal in response to an increasing number of attacks by pit bulls in recent years that resulted in four deaths -- two of them young children -- in the last five years.
The county saw a 9.6 percent decrease in dog bites in the year since the spay/neuter program was instituted, said Brian Cronin, the county's animal care and control division chief.

In July 2010, Police Chief Jim Clark said there had been no recorded pit bull attacks since the city's 2003 pit bull ban. Between 1989 and 2003, the city had a pit bull ordinance, but still allowed pit bulls as "guard" dogs.
"Police Chief Jim Clark says since the ban, there have been no recorded attacks by the animals.
"We haven't had any attacks since then for one thing because it is illegal," said Clark. "Most people are keeping their dogs inside their house or inside their basement and not letting them out loose so therefore they're not around other people to attack them."

"In the two-and-a-half years before the 2003 ban, Ottumwa police recorded 18 pit bull attacks, including the death of 21-month-old Charlee Shepherd in August 2002. There were at least three other attacks on children during this time."1

In March 2010, a subsequent article was written about the effectiveness of Salina's pit bull ordinance. Rose Base, director of the Salina Animal Shelter who lobbied for the ordinance, told the Salina Journal:
The ordinance has made a difference, she said. Records at the Salina Animal Shelter indicate there were 24 reported pit bull bites in 2003 and 2004, and only five since -- none from 2009 to present.
Salina has 62 registered pit bulls, Base said. Before the ordinance she guessed there were "close to 300." Since the first of this year three of the registered pit bulls have died of old age.
"We definitely haven't had the severity of bites that we had in the past," Base said. "Our community has been somewhat safer because of the law that was passed."2

"We passed a ban and started enforcing it in January of 05, at the end of 05 our numbers had dropped down to 19 people injured by pit bulls. In 06, the numbers dropped to 7 people injured by pit bulls. In 07, 2007 we only had two people injured by pit bulls and we haven't had a person injured by pit bulls since.

"City officials said that 1,138 pit bulls and Rottweilers were impounded last year by the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control. Of those, 362 were voluntarily surrendered by their owners in response to Lancaster’s ordinance.
A year ago, this city was overrun with individuals -- namely, gang members -- who routinely used pit bulls and other potentially vicious dogs as tools of intimidation and violence," Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris said in a statement."

"Because we are impounding fewer pit bulls, we've also seen overcrowding in our shelter subside," says assistant director Clay Goddard. "It is the natural tendency of pit bulls to fight, so our animal control staff are forced to segregate them in individual pens. When we have several pit bulls in the shelter simultaneously, this severely limits space for other dogs."

After an 8-year legal battle, pit bull advocates dismantled a pit bull law adopted by Reading in 1998. It was reported in the same news article, in February 2008, that the law had significantly reduced biting incidents:
"Reading's 1998 law required that aggressive or dangerous dogs, when outside the home, be muzzled and kept on a leash shorter than three feet long with a minimum tensile strength of 300 pounds.
The law also punished violators with fines of up to $1,000 or 30 days in jail.
The law is credited with helping to reduce dog bites from 130 in 1999 to 33 in 2006. As a result, the law - or at least elements of it - were not being actively enforced, the Reading Eagle reported last year.

The number of pit bull bites depicted in the "Salina Pit Bull Bites Reported" graph shows 2002 with 13 pit bull bites, 2003 with 11 pit bull bites, 2004 with 15 pit bull bites and 2005 with only one bite. The newsletter notes that "animal bites reported have remained constant, but the severity of bites have decreased dramatically" since the enactment of the pit bull ban.

Cities with Successful Pit Bull Laws; Data Shows Breed-Specific Laws Work
The lives of children, adults, senior citizens, beloved pets, horses, and livestock.
Pit Bull Laws Save Lives
DogsBite.org - Cities and counties in at least 12 states report successful results after enacting a breed-specific law. These states include: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington. The province of Ontario also reports successful results after it's 2005 adoption of a pit bull ban. Pro-pit bull groups frequently say, "BSL doesn't work." The below city and law enforcement officials disagree.

Saginaw, Michigan

In November 2012, Saginaw reported a reduction in dog attacks eighteen months after enacting a "Light" BSL ordinance1 requiring owners of the top 5 dangerous dog breeds2 to comply with new regulations.
Eighteen months after Saginaw created its dangerous dog ordinance, put into effect in June 2011, Saginaw City Chief Inspector John Stemple said it has helped to lower the amount of dog attacks in the city.
"It was the government reacting to a problem," Stemple said. "And if you look at the numbers, it's been very effective."
--- snip ---
The ordinance requires residents to register dogs whose breeds are deemed "dangerous" at the City Clerk's office, post a "Dog on premises" sign in the front of their homes and when outdoors, keep their animals either on a leash or within a 4-foot-high fenced area or kennel.
The breeds included in the ordinance are pit bulls, presa canario, bull mastiffs, rottweilers and German shepherds.
Stemple said he has heard from employees at Consumers Energy and the U.S. Postal Service that the signs and tethering rules have made their work safer. The number of reported dog bites fell in 2011 to nine, from 24 in 2009.

In a November 2011, public health statistics published by Global Toronto showed that pit bull bites dropped dramatically after Ontario adopted the Dog Owners Liability Act in 2005, an act that banned pit bulls:
The number of dog bites reported in Toronto has fallen since a ban on pit bulls took effect in 2005, public health statistics show.
A total of 486 bites were recorded in 2005. That number fell generally in the six years following, to 379 in 2010.
Provincial laws that banned 'pit bulls,' defined as pit bulls, Staffordshire terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, American pit bull terriers and dogs resembling them took effect in August 2005. Existing dogs were required to be sterilized, and leashed and muzzled in public.
Bites in Toronto blamed on the four affected breeds fell sharply, from 71 in 2005 to only six in 2010. This accounts for most of the reduction in total bites.(See: Data chart)

In August 2011, San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control, which oversees unincorporated areas and Highland and Yucaipa, reported a 9.6 decrease in dog bites after enacting a pit bull sterilization law in 2010.
The law, approved unanimously by the Board of Supervisors last week, expands upon an ordinance approved last year that requires pit bull owners to spay or neuter their pets.
Supervisor Neil Derry introduced the original proposal in response to an increasing number of attacks by pit bulls in recent years that resulted in four deaths -- two of them young children -- in the last five years.
The county saw a 9.6 percent decrease in dog bites in the year since the spay/neuter program was instituted, said Brian Cronin, the county's animal care and control division chief.

In July 2010, Police Chief Jim Clark said there had been no recorded pit bull attacks since the city's 2003 pit bull ban. Between 1989 and 2003, the city had a pit bull ordinance, but still allowed pit bulls as "guard" dogs.
"Police Chief Jim Clark says since the ban, there have been no recorded attacks by the animals.
"We haven't had any attacks since then for one thing because it is illegal," said Clark. "Most people are keeping their dogs inside their house or inside their basement and not letting them out loose so therefore they're not around other people to attack them."

"In the two-and-a-half years before the 2003 ban, Ottumwa police recorded 18 pit bull attacks, including the death of 21-month-old Charlee Shepherd in August 2002. There were at least three other attacks on children during this time."1

In March 2010, a subsequent article was written about the effectiveness of Salina's pit bull ordinance. Rose Base, director of the Salina Animal Shelter who lobbied for the ordinance, told the Salina Journal:
The ordinance has made a difference, she said. Records at the Salina Animal Shelter indicate there were 24 reported pit bull bites in 2003 and 2004, and only five since -- none from 2009 to present.
Salina has 62 registered pit bulls, Base said. Before the ordinance she guessed there were "close to 300." Since the first of this year three of the registered pit bulls have died of old age.
"We definitely haven't had the severity of bites that we had in the past," Base said. "Our community has been somewhat safer because of the law that was passed."2

"We passed a ban and started enforcing it in January of 05, at the end of 05 our numbers had dropped down to 19 people injured by pit bulls. In 06, the numbers dropped to 7 people injured by pit bulls. In 07, 2007 we only had two people injured by pit bulls and we haven't had a person injured by pit bulls since.

"Since requiring all pit bulls to be neutered, they say they are finding fewer pit bulls involved in biting incidents.
Sgt. Bill Herndon, of the San Francisco Police Department's vicious dog unit, said the numbers and severity of pit bull attacks are down since San Francisco enacted an ordinance in 2005 after the mauling death of 12-year-old Nicholas Faibish.
"The number of complaints of mean pit bulls has dropped dramatically," Herndon said.
San Francisco's animal control department reports more than 30 percent fewer pit bulls at the shelter or being euthanized."

"City officials said that 1,138 pit bulls and Rottweilers were impounded last year by the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control. Of those, 362 were voluntarily surrendered by their owners in response to Lancaster’s ordinance.
A year ago, this city was overrun with individuals -- namely, gang members -- who routinely used pit bulls and other potentially vicious dogs as tools of intimidation and violence," Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris said in a statement."

"Parris believes there is a correlation between the results of the dog ordinance and a drop in the city’s gang crime rate.

"Fort Lupton Police Chief Ron Grannis said the city hasn’t had a pit bull bite since the ban was enacted, but it still has the occasional pit bull that is picked up and taken away. Although he said the ban has not been well-received by every resident, he thinks it was the right decision for the city.
"I believe it makes the community safer,” he said.“That’s my personal opinion. Pit bulls are not the kind of dogs most people should have. They are too unpredictable.... These dogs have been bred for thousands of years to be fighters.

"The Springfield-Greene County Health Department reports that dog bites and vicious dog complaints are declining since the implementation of the Pit Bull Ordinance in the City of Springfield two years ago.

"The ordinance, which requires pit bull owners to register their dogs annually, has also resulted in fewer pit bull dogs being impounded at the Springfield Animal Shelter. In 2005 there were 502 pit bull and pit bull mixes impounded, compared to only 252 in 2007.
"Because we are impounding fewer pit bulls, we've also seen overcrowding in our shelter subside," says assistant director Clay Goddard. "It is the natural tendency of pit bulls to fight, so our animal control staff are forced to segregate them in individual pens. When we have several pit bulls in the shelter simultaneously, this severely limits space for other dogs."

After an 8-year legal battle, pit bull advocates dismantled a pit bull law adopted by Reading in 1998. It was reported in the same news article, in February 2008, that the law had significantly reduced biting incidents:
"Reading's 1998 law required that aggressive or dangerous dogs, when outside the home, be muzzled and kept on a leash shorter than three feet long with a minimum tensile strength of 300 pounds.
The law also punished violators with fines of up to $1,000 or 30 days in jail.
The law is credited with helping to reduce dog bites from 130 in 1999 to 33 in 2006. As a result, the law - or at least elements of it - were not being actively enforced, the Reading Eagle reported last year.
