A man is recovering after being severely attacked by a pack of pit bulls in Socorro.
The attack occurred around 4:30 p.m. Friday. Armando Gutierrez told emergency crews that he was walking by a residence on Flor Bonita Avenue when it happened.
According to Socorro City spokesman Dave Garcia, the man had to have his left ear amputated. He also received severe damage to his face and nose and multiple lacerations on his head.
Garcia said the owner of the dogs was cited for failure to control the dogs.
The dogs are now in the possession of the county.
Gutierrez is expected to be okay.
I wonder what he did to provoke the dog attack?

Dave Garcia is such a joto. It wouldn't surprise me is this was some kind of tactical cover up to divert attention away from the corrupt socorro police investigation.
This guy was probably paid to get thrown in with those dogs.

When I was on the force, we saw this most every day. Dogs are not leashed properly and people who are liquored up want to prove how tough they are by provoking the animal.

First off, many people do not understand that pit bulls are not a breed of dog. In fact, many pit bull breeds fall under the blanket "pit bull " category. These include:
American Pit Bull Terrier
American Staffordshire Terrier
Dogue de Bordeaux
Perro de Presa Canario
Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Myth: Pit bulls have locking jaws. Once they bite, they can’t let go, even if they want to.
FACT: No dog of any breed has ever been found to possess a mechanism in their jaw which would allow them to “lock” their top and bottom jaw together. There is no such thing as a locking jaw!
Myth: Pit bulls have a unique bite style consisting of biting down, holding, and shaking.
FACT: Biting, holding, and shaking are
not unique behaviors for pit bulls. All dogs will perform these behaviors.Tug toys and rope toys are popular because many dogs enjoy grabbing, pulling, and shaking them. This is a natural behavior that all dogs engage in.
Myth: Pit bulls are genetically driven to kill people.
FACT: Dogs are not machines; they are living organisms. Like all living organisms, a dog’s behavior is influenced by both genetics and environment. How a dog owner manages his or her dog will determine whether the dog becomes a danger to humans. No dog is driven entirely by genetics to attack people, and
no dog breed has been created or bred into such a state that all dogs of that breed are compelled to attack people. Dogs that are raised as beloved family pets do not kill people.
Myth: Pit bulls are very aggressive.
FACT: Pit bulls are no more or less aggressive than any other type of dog. Many of the behaviors we expect from and encourage in dogs, including hunting, tracking, guarding, and even playing, are actually modified forms of aggression.
aggressiveness toward small animals, is common with all breeds and types of dogs. Dogs are essentially domesticated predators. Many dogs will exhibit predatory behavior toward small
animals that they consider prey.
Aggression is an individual trait that varies from dog to dog, and has a lot to do with a dog’s environment and owners. Aggressive behaviors are common and normal in dogs of all breeds and types. Pit bulls do not exhibit any aggressive behaviors that are unique or extreme when compared to other breeds or types of dogs.
Myth: If a pit bull bites down and tastes blood, it will become aggressive and unstoppable.
FACT: Dogs bite because they are scared, in pain, or defensive. They bite so that the offending person/animal/object will go away—and it usually works. Subsequent bites have nothing to do with the “taste of blood.” rather when faced in a similar situation again the dog is repeating a behavior that has gotten a desired result in the past.
Pit Bull Fact which may surprise you:
Despite what some people believe, pit bulls actually make great pets for families. In tests done by the American Temperament Test Society, pit bulls were generally less aggressive when faced with confrontational situations that produced negative reactions out of many other stereotypically "friendly " dog breeds, such as beagles and poodles. They ranked higher overall than golden retrievers on temperament with a 83% pass rate vs 82% for golden retrievers.
Listed as biters from the CDC:
is impossible to say the top ten dogs that bite because all dogs bite. The top ten most likely to bite are: Dachshunds, chihuahuas, toy poodles, Dalmatians, Husky, Akitas,
Jack Russell/some terriers/pit bull terrier, GSD, boxer and Rottweilers.

You were never on any police force or animal regulations unit. You can't even lie convincingly.

Take the dogs to the pound for the required time limit and then shot them. Fine the owner $1,000 per dog and then let the man sue the owner for everything he has. every yard that has a large dog, pit bull or mastiff should be required to have a fence of at least 6 feet in height and pulser electronics to prevent the dog from trying to jump over.

Okay, regardless of breed you say but how many chihuahuas do you know have killed a person. These animals who bite a person severely or kill another animal being walked on a leash should be put down after being held to determine if they are sick or not.

That is great but most hispanics will not do that. They breed their dogs like they breed children that they can't take care of - with no regard with what hard they will bring unto others.
