Child Attacked by Dog










A family says they are traumatized after nearly losing a 5-year old boy to a vicious dog attack. A neighbor walks outside his home to see what he thought were two dogs fighting, but he quickly realized, it wasn't two dogs, it was a pit bull viciously attacking a 5 year old boy.

It's a scene out of a nightmare, seeing a helpless child being mauled by a dog. 5 year old C.J. Narcisse and three of his friends were outside jumping on a trampoline Thursday afternoon when they say a loose pit bull jumped in.

"And he came down the street from here, and they said he jumped in the trampoline with the children, and the children started running out the trampoline and some kinda way he grabbed my son." said Carl Narcisse

As 5 year old C.J. and 3 other children were jumping in the trampoline, the pit bull jumped inside. The children jumped out and ran, But C.J. didn't get very far.

"the dog jumped on the trampoline and I jumped on the truck. He pulled me down and I was on the ground." said 5 year old C.J.

C.J. tried to jump in the back of his neighbors truck next door.

"But the dog grabbed him from the back and drug him into the yard next door." said Narcisse

That's when next door neighbor George Mitchell walked outside to a scene he says he will never forget.

"I dove on the dog, I ain't have time, cause I was in my slippers, I just ran out the house and I seen what was goin on, and I just dove on the dog." said George Mitchell

Now Mitchell says, he's just thankful that a life wasn't taken.

"I know he is going though some trauma. I'm going through some trauma about this. This ain't nothing to play with, a life could have been lost." said Mitchell

5-year old C.J. had to have 200 stitches in his face and lost four teeth. The owner of the pit bull, 22 year old Kristen Boyd was arrested and charged with with a host of charges including unlawful ownership of a dangerous dog, and disturbing the peace.

The owner was arrested..... No Mickey Mouse law enforcement in Lafayette. NO politics being played here. This is what should have happened on Friday when this precious child was taken.

We have an underground electrical fence for our Lab dog. When he TRIES to get over his fence he knows he will get shocked. I see alot of people have these collars on thier dogs. YES they work and they are not being cruel to these animals.

An electric line is not even good enough...I have seen plenty of times, the dogs get use to the shock, they know 1, 2, 3 the shock is over with and when there was something on the other side they wanted bad enough, they jumped thru it, got shock, roll, cried for a second and was up and running after what they wanted...

Those are the "do it yourself" models that you buy at PetSmart etc. If you get the professionally installed models it cost more but its worth it. The dogs have to be moving at over 100 mph to get over the line.

They now have wireless electrical fences. Works in the same manner as the buried lines. You are able to adjust the boundary of the fence by turning a dial on the base which is plugged into an electrical outlet in your home....which is better than having the line buried and not being able to adjust the boundary at all.

Be aware before you purchase either type, certain breed of dogs just don't care if they get shocked or not...labadors, siberian huskies are 2 that come to mind....even if you shave their thick coat of hair underneath their neck so the contact points are closer to their skin.

Short hair breeds are more respectful of the fence. Even so, heard of one dog that would go to the boundary line and sit and listen until the colar would stop beeping and then haul boogy across the line. In essence, the dog was running the battery down before crossing so he wouldn't get shocked.

One will get the same results with both type of units...wireless or line buried underground. If it works for the dog, it works like a charm. If it doesn't work, NOTHING you can do but cuss the unit and wait until you get another breed who is more respectful of the shock.

Another note: We never use the flags....too much hassle, besides, the dog could get killed in the road while waiting to be humanely trained. I'd rather see a dog get a couple of shocks and learn quick than to see one get killed before he is trained.
