TRENTON — They were in the attic for days. Chardonnay Evans paid no mind to the ruckus up there because the noise makers were just a couple of dogs barking and scratching and doing whatever else doggies do.
“But I never thought my roof — my ceiling — was going to get bit,” said Evans, the Trenton teenager, whose bedroom was below the attic.
What Evans didn’t know is that the dogs were gnawing on the floor, chewing through the wood planks, satisfying some kind of hunger. The constant abuse created a weak spot in the floor, and the weak spot caved, and then one of the dogs fell through and crashed onto the girl's head.
“He was just growling and barking,” Evans told The Trentonian a few days after the encounter last July. She said she was cleaning her room the day it rained wood planks and dogs. Presumably frightened and confused, the dog scampered into the hall even though the girl screamed “Mom! Mommy!”
Shouldn’t the dog have smelled her fear and sunk its teeth into the girl’s flesh with 10,000 jaw-locking pounds of pressure and eaten Chardonnay like a Milk Bone?
Why not? It was a stereotypical pit bull, right? Well, yes. But maybe not.
Because no one knows what breed of dog fell onto Chardonnay Evans’ head. It could’ve been a pit bull, or a dog that looked like a pit bull.
And therein lies the rub: There is no clear consensus of what a pit bull is even though you can’t turn around these days without reading massive headlines like “VICIOUS PIT BULL ATTACKS BABY AND CHEWS OFF HER FACE THEN TEARS OUT HER HEART, LUNGS & GUTS!”

I think this piece is just a way for them to get hits. All they did was take bits and pieces from different people and put them together to show different sides of the issue. Just because they went to a house to 'meet' their Pits and because they were not mauled to death, what that is supposed to prove, they may be safe dogs? To Joey Kulkin, all I have to say is I hope you have an angel watching over you... Bill Owens clearly does not know the potential of what his dogs are capable of, and speaks very ignorantly about the breed. If you keep on going up to strange Pit Bulls like that, one day your luck could run out. As they say "Keep playing with fire and one day you will get burned."
