BREAKING NEWS

INDIANA MAN MAULED TO DEATH BY HIS PIT BULL ON CHRISTMAS DAY
December 28, 2014

(PORTAGE BAY, INDIANA) -- A Portage Bay man was mauled to death on Christmas Day by his own pit bull, according to authorities.

Eddie Cahill, 40, was at home Dec. 25 with his two 8-year-old dogs, Fat Boy and Keylo while his wife Blanca Rodriguez was away spending the day with her family.

When she got back home around 5 pm she found Fat Boy with blood on his mouth and Cahill dead in the living room covered in dog bites, according to a report by WGNTV.com.

After the attack the dog was brought to the Humane Society in Hobart, Indiana where animal control officers say they had to use a Taser to get the dog under control, according to the report. The dog was euthanized.

The family says they had given the dog bones for Christmas and it was just a freak accident. However, no family member reportedly witnessed the attack so it is not known what may have prompted it.

Rodriquez told the station they had never had any problems with Fat Boy in the past, but in a police report she told the responding officer she had warned Cahill to euthanize the dog because it was violent and unpredictable.

PIT BULLS ARE INVOLVED IN MANY ATTACKS ON HUMANS

According to 2013 statistics on pit bull attacks and deaths from dogsbite.org

~ 32 U.S. dog bite-related fatalities occurred in 2013. Despite being regulated in Military Housing areas and over 700 U.S. cities, pit bulls contributed to 78% (25) of these deaths yet pit bulls make up only about 6% of the total U.S. dog population.

~ Together, pit bulls (25) and rottweilers (1), the second most lethal dog breed, accounted for 81% of the total recorded deaths in 2013. This same combination accounted for 74% of all fatal attacks during the 9-year period of 2005 to 2013.

Pit bull is the name of a class of related breeds, the most popular being the American Staffordshire Terrier. Pit Bulls were originally bred as bloodsport dogs. Once these activities became illegal, handlers turned to dog fighting in an effort to conceal their illicit gambling activities, according to poundwishes.com which notes that, "Care should be taken when introducing this breed to children and other dogs, as standard attacks can prove especially serious."
