Beware of Dog

A few weeks ago, my uncle, Henry Whitley, NW 9th Street, Boca Raton, Florida 33432 was walking the family dog on a leash on a public sidewalk in the 800 block of NW 2nd Avenue when he was attacked by a Pit Bull mix. Fortunately, Henry, 72, survived the unprovoked attack and will eventually recover from his physical injuries. The dog that attacked him has been released, determined to be OK, and is now back with the family. That’s right. THE DOG IS BACK IN THE AREA! Be careful and stay alert. This happened to Henry. It could happen to anyone. The dog owner told the police the dog had previously bitten someone else. How many attacks does it take to get a dangerous dog off the streets? If you have doubts about the validity of this incident, call the Boca Raton Police, and ask them about the attack. You have a right to be safe. Demand to know! If you don’t live in the area, but know someone who does, please warn them. I don’t want this to happen to someone else. It’s scary, and it’s not pretty. Pit Bull Hater? Not me. I love animals, just not the ones that attack. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls have lived up to their reputation as being dangerous dogs that attack. Help stop these senseless attacks. Protect yourself and the ones you love. Carry a gun… a big one.
