Two Children Attacked by Pit Bull on Windsor Street

By Seth Daniel

Two children are recovering from injuries sustained when a pit bull visiting from Revere escaped from a basement and attacked the two, causing serious injuries to the ear of a 3-year-old.

According to police, around 2 p.m. on Saturday officers, Everett Fire and Cataldo Ambulance were dispatched to Windsor Street for a potential dog bit.

Upon arrival, it was discovered that a pit bull from Revere had escaped from a cellar and attacked two children. The 3-year-old was transported from the scene to Mass General with serious injuries to his left ear and forehead. An 8-year-old was transported to Mass General with scratches above his eye.

Their condition wasn’t available at press time.

Everett Animal Control Officer Stacia Gorgone arrived on scene and transported the dog to its home in Revere. The dog is under mandatory quarantine for two weeks and the Revere Animal Control Officer has been notified.

    Why is this “dog” not being euthanized? Next time a child may die, morons.

    Don’t own a pit bull:

    Pit bull attacks are one of the biggest public safety issues in America today. In the last 3 months of 2015, pit bulls killed more people than Dobermans killed in 60 years.

    More than 1 in 40 pit bulls killed or seriously injured another animal in 2013-2014. By comparison, only 1 dog in 50,000 of all other breed types combined killed or seriously injured another animal.

    Pit bull attacks have increased 830% in seven years in the US and Canada.

    In addition to attacks on people, pit bulls killed 24,000 other dogs and 13,000 cats in the US in 2015, or 66 dogs per day.

    Pit bulls are zero-error dogs. There is zero room for mistakes like gates, doors or windows left open or unlocked; for leashes, chains and muzzles breaking or coming loose; or for people not strong enough or experienced enough to prevent attacks. (From National Pit Bull Victim Awareness)

    Sorry, but this dog has no business being alive. I know the family and it took two big guys to get the dog off of the first child and then it attacked the second, both unprovoked. The owner has claimed this is the dog’s first offence and it looks like the dog will not be euthanized.

    Here is the information for the Revere animal control officer:

    Let him know that this is not ok. This dog is a ticking time bomb. The next incident could be fatal.
