You can rest assure the BOY first indimadated the dog. Its almost always the case, parents should teach children not to go near dogs they dont know. The parents are the ones responsible. The dram driven media, never mentions that part of the story! Better story if innocent children get eaten, right?
john I came across this 4 years later. I was living there at these apartments, I witnessed the attack myself. my son was sitting right next to the child that was viciously attacked. The children were not doing a thing but talking to each other when the dog tore through his screen window and ran straight for both boys. He grab the boy sitting right beside my son and his jaws locked. This dog slung him around like a rag doll. People were running out of their apartments screaming and shouting. The dog dragged this boy all over the place before the mother of the boy ran up to the dog and hit him with a stick. the dog ran around wildly. the mother ran to my balcony to get away from the dog blood was everywhere. she turned and the dog was coming after them the mom ran and the dog nearly flew over my balcony jumping after her. there were maybe 6 kids who had been placed over the balcony by a neighbor when the dog saw them he tried to get over the wall to get to them the kids were screaming. a man jumped in my balcony and grabbed my broom and hit the dog with it several times before the dog retracted.

Lets round up the illegal aliens, and their anchor babies and ship them back to Mexico. After all, they kill more people and fill up our jails more than any other breed.
You can bet the kid started in by hitting the dog over the head with a stick. If somebody did that to you , wouldn't you bite them too?
you are so wrong and ignorant. This kid did nothing!!!!! he was attacked and it was almost my child. IT WAS A HORRIFIC THING. in fact the kid wasn't ever allowed to go outside alone to play this was his first time doing that. ll the apartments back balconies faced each other so if our kids were playing we could see them. the reports say the owner gave the dog over willingly. that wasn't the case. The owner wouldn't even come see about the boy or come get his dog. it ran around for 20 mins scaring everyone before it jumped back in his window. When the sheriff got there and knocked on the owners door he refused to answer them. when he finally did answer the door he said the dog wasn't with him. in short the dog was finally given over when the owner was threatened to be arrested for child endangerment. tHE DOG WAS REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN THROWING ITSELF UP AGAINST THE WALLS OF HIS KENNEL WHILE IN quarantine. The owner was reported to have been abusing the dog in an effocrt to train the dog to be an attack dog. he would wear spurs on his heels and would kick the dog while training him. this owner was fully responsible for what happened. the apartments were liable as well. There weren't supposed to be dogs of this breed there. I happen to be able to get out of my lease when this happen because my child was the one sitting next to this little boy when it was attacked. this kid nearly died and didn't deserve this.

Hey, I was there, I saw that poor child. That dog was crazed and going after anyone and everyone in his path. He was trying to jump over balconies to get at other children, people were throwing children over balconies to try and save them from this crazed animal. The dog jumped out his owner's window to get at this child, the child had no chance. His owner didn't even know he was out loose on a rampage until it was too late. My prayers are with this poor baby and his family, he is only 5 years old and will most likely be scarred and traumatized the rest of his life. That dog needs to go and the owner should be put in jail for negligence. This could have been prevented if the owner would have been aware & paying attention to his animal & what was going on in his own house!! POOR JOSE, our love is with you sweetie.
i was there too and you are right. the mother ran to my balcony and i was trying to get my sliding door opened to grab her child and the door stuck the dog was right behind her and jumped after her as she turned to run with her baby in her hands. the dog still hanging on to my balcony seeing the kids all crouched down under my table the dog was trying to get after them. if it weren't for the nice brave man who jumped in my balcony to help the children i wouldn't have been able to get to the children to help them. he jumped in my balcony grabbed my broom and started beating the dog with it. ill never forget the look of viscousness n that dogs face and all te blood dripping form his teeth.

i am 70 years old. since i was very young i have worked with countless breeds including a nearly
100 pitbulls as a groomer, trainer, walker, sitter, in a major dept. store boarding hotel where as many as 250 dogs were in our care at one time. i know my craft and i know breeds. this is getting a bit crazy (must be crazy, ignorant persons instigating the laws.) before passing judgment on a whole breed, the individual dog should be observed. i have had chihuahuas that have tried to take my leg off and have been bitten breaking skin as just one fine example. this is like saying that all blacks must be some kind of a criminal because society has "suggested" it and then it must be true. the world unfortunately is full of idiots who are misinformed and pass stupid laws. it boils down to very much like how we teach our children good behavior or not, it is the same with our pets. training makes all the difference!

You're an ignorant asshole who should be euthanized just for that reason.

I'm a dog trainer and have trained over 300 pits throughout my career, 99% of them were the sweetest dogs, the other 1% were abused/mistreated in tne past. Your an ivnofant jerk who probably thinks Chihuahua's are sweet- 1 of the most aggressive breeds btw.
