An 82 year-old woman wrestled with a pit bull to protect her schnauzer from being attacked.
Wired PR News – An 82 year-old Garland woman risked her safety to save her beloved pet. As reported by WFAA-TV, Dorothy Davis wrestled with a neighborhood pit bull to protect her schnauzer from a violent attack.
As noted in the report, the pit bull pounced on her pet while she was taking it for a walk outside. Davis is quoted by WFAA-TV as stating of the incident, “I just knew he was going to kill him, and I was not going to let that happen.” Davis reportedly ended up with cuts and bruises in stopping the attack, and so did her dog Cuda.
The owner of the pit bull was said to have been given a ticket for the attack. The animal may have to be removed if a formal complaint is filed.
