Police said they don't know what provoked two pit bulls to attack three people in an upscale residence here.Three people are in the hospital with bites to their legs and both dogs are dead. There isn't much reported just yet, and chances are we'll never learn more or at least the truth.
Dogs don't just attack their owners out of the blue.
There are so many factors that could contribute to these dogs' "turning" on their owners. Did the owners recently adopt them and did they know little if anything about them? Are they fostering them, and again did they know little about them? Shame on the rescue organization, if that's the case.
On the flip side, were these dogs used to protect something, say, a drug stash? Were they taught to be aggressive? Was one person in the apartment being violent toward another; did that trigger the dogs into action?
But what was the real story here? The media story? It was a Pit Bull attack, pure and simple. That's the media sensation and that's why it's likely we'll never know the full truth.
Score another one against the Pitties.
It's not completely clear, but it seems that one of the dogs did all of the attacking. The second Pit Bull "remained harmless," and according to The Humane Society "was apparently ownerless." Could one of the apartment residents have taken in the dog from the streets in an attempt to help it and things went horribly wrong?
