A Lehigh Acres woman and her pet dog were attacked right outside their home while starting a walk on Haskell Street. The woman who says it was a neighbor's pit bull who bit her face and arms, then dragged her down the street.
Seven-year old Prince is a fighter. The 10-pound miniature pincher is recovering from an attack by a pit bull nearly 10 times his size.
And his 70-year-old owner is doing the same.
"I got him into my arms and I'm trying to protect him and I'm trying to back up and then he started biting on me so he went to the bone on this arm and went pretty far on this arm," said victim Sonja Mattick.
Pit Bulls were originally bred to be safe with people, but no plan is flawless. There have always been those Pit Bulls that are man biters and it seems that here lately they just keep getting more and more confused and going after people.. Many people are breeding human aggressive Pit Bulls on purpose. These days you just cannot tell which ones are only dog aggressive, only people aggressive, or both! It's just not worth the risk.
