So yesterday afternoon my wife decided to take Barley on a walk, just around the corner from our house two pitbulls come out of nowhere off leash and just clamp on to Barley's ear, the other one on his back leg. My wife is trying to push them off but they are clamped on, the owner, some lady shows up and is just calling their names telling them no but they are of course not listening, wife can't get them to let go, trying to open their mouths without getting bit herself but she got bit a little too, neighbors ran out to help and got the smaller pit away, the owner just grabbed the bigger one in a hug and was telling him to let go and doing nothing else, meanwhile wife is scared this dog is going to rip Barley's ear off. They finally get him off and she somehow gets them back in their yard, neighbor who is an emt helps clean up my wife, she calls me freaking out so I had to leave work, get home and rush the dog to the vet... $800 later Barley is a bit banged up but will be ok. 2 wounds with drains, 6 punctures and stitch areas, antibiotics, pain meds, cone of shame.
Took animal control until today to show up, my wife said all they did was take our statement and give us a report to fill out and send in, I am curious as to what comes from that as these people at the absolute least need to pay our vet bill.
So frustrating that something like this can happen!
