UPDATE: Owner attacked by pit bull dies of injuries

Neill Fronde



PHOTO: A pit bull attacked and killed his owner (not this pit bull pictured).

The owner, attacked by his pet pit bull in the Pattaya suburb of Bang Lamung yesterday, has died of the injuries sustained in the attack. The horrific incident which occurred in the early hours of yesterday morning had shocked the family, who had raised the now 2 year old dog Giant since he was only 3 months old.

Wisit Sanguan, the 56 year old victim had been sleeping with Giant when the pit bull suddenly woke and viciously attacked the sleeping man. Wisit was brought to the hospital with severe bleeding from bites on his neck and body, and today doctors at the local hospital in Pattaya pronounced him dead. The cause of death was listed as loss of blood due to severe wounds from the attack, his wife confirmed in a statement this morning.

The dog took over 30 minutes to subdue initially and remained aggressive after the event prompting the Chon Buri Pit Bull Club to put the dog to sleep with medication in order to chain him up and remove him from the premises. Giant remains in the custody of the club, who will cooperate with police officers to help determine the cause and any additional information regarding the deadly and shocking attack. No information has been released about the future of the attacking pit bull at this time.

    No sympathy at all.hopefully the dog will be destroyed also.a good result for the rest of the population of the local area who now will be able to allow their children to walk by the property in safety.

    The traumatized pit bull has now been taken in by an animal charity because it is now an orphan.

    Play with fire, you get burned. Stupid people win stupid prizes. You can be sure that in some forum, somewhere in the world “oblivions” will be trying to convince everyone just how kind and gentle this and other dangerous dog breeds really are.

    It’s never the dog. It’s always the owner.

    Get rid of all such dogs, there is no place for them in our society and the owners can not guarantee they will not attack innocent children playing in the street as we have seen on too many occasions.

    Who dies from blood loss in a hospital? Surely they have enough blood to transfuse whilst treating his wounds.

    I agree we have to get rid of these dogs but it is difficult to generalize. Some people keep a pit-bull dog as an aggressive weapon. Others keep one out of self defense and who knows, some might like the dogs as they are because they have some resemblance of the owner. In any case, these dogs are potentially ferocious killing machines and when I come across a pit-bull I feel uneasy. There have been too many incidents with horrible outcomes. Breeding and selling should be forbidden and all these dogs sterilized. That way they slowly will disappear out of society.

    They don’t know the future of the attacking dog? Please tell they aren’t going to “rehabilitate” him and re-home him.

    That dog must be put down. These dogs were bred for fighting and should NOT be kept as pets. If a grown man cannot defend himself against his own dog, what chance would a child or really, anyone else have.
