Unhappy Horses Mauled By Pit Bull In Frederick - October 11, 2006, 04:59 PM

FREDERICK, MD -- A miniature horse foal is recovering after being nearly killed by a pit bull.

"Dot," a 5-month-old foal suffered more than 100 puncture wounds on her legs and still has an open wound on her underside from an attack early Tuesday morning.

The attack happened at Karin Walden's farm on Old Annapolis Road in Frederick.

Walden says she notices her horses panicking in the stall on a closed-circuit television. When she came out, she saw a brown pitbull and a mixed breed dog running away.

Wednesday afternoon she identified a captured pit bull at Animal Control who attacked "Dot" and three other horses on her property.

"There's a flesh-eating bacteria that sets pretty quickly, and that's what we are hoping doesn't happen," says Walden. "We're hoping her temperature doesn't spike. So, those are the two main reasons. We are kind of tentative right now."

Animal Control officers are still searching for the other dog.

The EXACT same thing happened with Joey Porter's dogs in Pennsylvania.

I know Karen. And the horses aren't in a stable per say. They are in a fenced field, the foal was in a fenced paddock probably 40' x 40'. Dogs can get in easily through the fence.

This is the full story..

and from what I understand, they have found the second dog and are looking for a third.

The problem is that the owner will never voluntarily come forward and pay for the injuries or be punished so the dog will be put down instead. Of course even if the owner does come forward the dog will still be put down.


MissS:no now!!!

bambam nope you said i have a few hours

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it

Unfortunately you are right. They will probably never find the owners and yes the dogs will be put down. It's sad, for the dogs and for the horses that they attacked. I would rather see the owners put down but that will never happen. It's a shame that anyone can own a dog.

Who cares if the horses are just in a fenced field! These damn dog owners need to be more responsible. I have nothing against AmStaf's except their owner/trainers. I know many that are as gentle as can be. Put 2 or 3 three poorly cared for, hungery dogs together and you get pack hunters. That is what they did, hunted. Those types of dogs are dangerous but its the owners fault.

actually someone asked, how a dog could get into a stable, I was just explaining that the foal was not in a stable. I totally agree that it's the dog owners fault.
