Woman Loses Arms After Family Pitbulls Attack Her

When Linda Henry (pictured) of Westwego, La., was viciously attacked by three of her four pitbulls last March, the attack left her without an eye, ear and armless.

Bitten throughout her torso, the dogs’ bites were so deep that parts of the 54-year-old woman’s bones from her arms and legs were exposed.

Henry recounted to WGNO the horrific incident by the dogs, whom she and her common-law husband, Clarence Allen, loved and treated like their children. “They grab my left leg and rip all that up. Then they tried to get my eye ball out,” Henry said. “They ripped my eye lids off, they bit my lip, then they grabbed my head. In the hospital, they had to take skin off my leg to put on my head.”

The brutality of the incident motivated one Westwego City Councilman to propose a pitbull ordinance that would place strict restrictions on the owners of these dogs. When news of the proposed ordinance leaked, a firestorm followed and pitbull owners across the country are up in arms, according to WGNO. Many are even trying to make moves to block the legislation by petitioning it online.

Councilman Glen Green says his proposed ordinance “is not anti-pit bull.” “All of these people submitting petitions did not get to see Linda Henry after that dog attack,” Green said in his defense. “Had they seen this lady or went to visit her in the hospital like I did, I probably wouldn’t be getting very many petitions.”

The city’s mayor, John Shaddinger, says the public is divided on the issue. “Some people have called for it; some people have called and written against it,” Shaddinger said.

Henry and Allen are behind the proposed pit bull legislation wholeheartedly. And they have data to back up their support. According to DogsBite.org, from 2005 to 2012, pitbulls have killed 151 Americans, about one
citizen every 19 days. Of these deaths, fifty-two percent involved a family member and a household pitbull.

Notably, in the first 8 months of 2011, nearly half of those killed by a pitbull owned the animal.

Meanwhile, the proposed legislation has been postponed until July, so that other in-coming city council members can debate it.

After noticing that, I then had to re-read the entire article in Chip's voice. Fuckin' Chip

That's what happens when you chain your dogs to a tree in your backyard their entire life and expect them to be friendly.

Fixed for accuracy. Much like rednecks and royalty, interbreeding has made these animals flawed. When are people going to start fucking admitting it? I have no doubt she was a shitty owner, but this can happen with any of these fucking things, at any given time.

Pretty much any dog... like my dog's breeder said GSD's cannot be tied up as they will go squirrelly.

I've been around some awesome pitbulls. They were all owned by white people who took great care of their dogs and trained them properly and let them burn out tons of energy everyday..... Down here, black people get pitbulls because they think it's cool to have one, and then they just chain them to tree's in their backyard.

And it doesn't matter one fucking bit. Startle the dog at just the right time, add some sort of stimuli that triggers something in it's broken pitt brain, and the dog eats your kids face. The animals are genetically unstable. Anyone who allows one around their kids are completely irresponsible.

Well the rescue dog we got a while ago was found tied to a tree in August in Texas. My chick even found either a cigar burn or car cigarette lighter burn on her back. So as a result she is terrified of men... took about a month for her to warm up to me.



The vet thinks she is part Boston Terrier and either Boxer or Pit Bull...

Again same reason there are so many Border Collie's in rescue... people see Babe and go lets get one. And when it starts herding their kids and nipping at their heels they get rid of it.

Well I disagree. It's a dog. You train your dog right, that shit doesn't happen.

Yeah.... If you don't plan on letting your dog get outside and spend it's energy, don't get a high energy dog.... People are stupid though, not the dogs.

Keep telling yourself that...just like everyone who had a properly trained pitt that went nuts. You can't train out genetic deformity.

Our late Border Collie did sheep trials... she gripped so couldn't use her for that. But 10 years later she still remembered/responded to all the vocal and hand signals.

I feel much more comfortable around a trained pitbull then i do around a 7 year old doberman. Doberman's go crazy around that age.

I put them in the same category, really. Generations of genetic inbreeding to make them killers. That doesn't go away.

Nice looking pooch ya got there fella!


If you have a mixed breed, it is fun to get their DNA checked to see what breeds are lurking in the muttness.

Check that out and well worth the cost. Certain breeds prone to health issues and knowing what breeds are there help. Plus it's fun to see how mixed up our dogs are!

my buddy had a doberman that was an awesome dog until it turned about 6 or 7. then it bit 3 people in the face and he had to put it down. he used to put the dog in his pickup truck and ask me if he could bring it in my house when he rode by. No you can't bring your horse sized dog in my fucking house dude.

Actually have to do that for the horse... as we don't know who her father was. As her mother prob got banged by a colt at like a year and half... more they likely she is all Quarter Horse.
