Runners Bitten by Roaming Pit Bulls

Police reports: Dog attacks runners; Officer finds cash.

Two runners told police they were attacked by two roaming pit bulls on Atlantic Street off Coleman Boulevard.

It happened Sept. 12 at about 7:30 p.m., according to reports. The man and woman said they were charged by two aggressive dogs, and neighbors confirmed they also had been in fear of the animals for at least two weeks.

Police traced the animals to Carrie J. Gault's residence. She apologized for the attack and said the animals simply got loose while her son was the only person at home, the report states.

Police referred the case to Animal Control. The victims declined medical attention.

On the real subject at hand, it appears that these pit bulls have been loose before, which sounds similar to situations I have faced in my community. The problem is that when you report same to the dispatcher, particularly if it is on a weekend, they only ask you one main question---"is the dog acting aggressively to you?". If it is not and in my case it was not--I just saw it loose and did not go up to it to find out about it--they pretty much ignore your phone call--you do not see any immediate response from anyone. This one question is the wrong question. The questions that should be asked should center around the kind and size of the dog and its ability to cause harm regardless of it being aggressive at that moment or not. I assume from their question that they are waiting for me to say--"yes it is aggressive, it has a child in its mouth and is ripping the child apart"--then I would get an immediate response. So now, when confronted with a loose unidentified large dangerous dog I make sure that I heard the dog give me an aggressive "growl" and when asked their silly question, I answer with an unqualified "yes" and receive appropriate response.
