Athens Pit bull Attacks Boy

The Associated Press reports that a ten year old boy in Athens Georgia says that a pit bull terrier which mauled his face and attacked police was actually one of his favorite pets.  Jeremy Martinez had to have 30 stitches after the dog he’d grown up with for several years unexpectedly tore off a portion of the boy’s face on Tuesday. Reports say the dog also attacked a responding police officer before the officer shot and killed the dog.
