pit bull attack

A Tampa Fla. woman is recovering in a hospital after she was viciously attacked by her pit bull while trying to put an ugly Christmas sweater on the animal.

Brenda Guerrero, 52, was bitten multiple times by her pit bull mix named Scarface in the backyard of her home. Two other members of her family were also attacked.

The NY Daily News reports that Guerrero’s husband, Ismael Guerrero, 46, and son, Antonio Harris, 22, tried to stop the dog attack but they were both bitten.

Harris grabbed a knife and stabbed the dog in the head and neck to stop the bloody attack. All 3 adults fled the backyard, leaving Scarface bleeding in the yard.

Scarface then entered the home where two children were left unattended. The children were not harmed.

Animal Control responded to the scene and used a taser to subdue the pit bull, before capturing it.

Guerrero’s granddaughter, Tina Harris, told the Daily News that her grandmother underwent surgery and is recovering in the hospital.

“She’s doing much better because she can finally move and talk,” Harris told the paper.

Animal experts advise pet owners not to put human clothing on dogs because it may cause overheating. But people don’t listen, and now the animals are fighting back.

    This is what happens when you anthropomorphize your pets and disrespect their rights as a living, non-human creature. What we perceive as cute, may be perceived as an attack by them.

    I got my first pit bull aka American Staffordshire Terrier about twenty years ago. When I took him to the vet for his first checkup and shots, the veterinarian said (I’m paraphrasing), “He’s a puppy. He’s still playful but he will become increasingly aggressive and protective around strangers. I suggest you start training him to obey your commands and make it very clear that you are the pack leader. And whatever you do, do not wrestle or play tug-o-war with this dog. It may be a game to you but he may perceive it as aggression. You don’t want to encourage aggressive behavior towards you.”

    Some short guys can be very insecure and have very strange rules about physical contact. I knew a short man who would freak out if anyone touched his head! He said it made him feel like they were treating him like a child or an animal.

  • da_educator

    1. if sweaters were meant for animals, they would have been born with them…pit bulls once again are going to be thrown under the bus for the selfishness of a dumb ass who wanted an IG pic

    2. “All 3 adults fled the backyard, leaving Scarface bleeding in the yard…
    Scarface then entered the home where two children were left unattended.” WHAT KIND OF COWARDLY ISH IS THIS????

  • nick c

    My pit and I use to fight hardcore they are very strong and potentially dangerous. I wouldn’t get one again because of all the restrictions places have on pits.

  • alwayznillin

    I’m sure all three probably “fled” the backyard to go to the hospital. The use of the word fled implies something more sinister.

  • GuestSTAR

    Not to far from where I live there’s a corner home where a Mexican family live and they’ve pretty much turned the house into a store in a residential neighborhood. They have all kinds of sht all around the house, in the yard and hangin from the fence to sell. They also have 2 HUUUGE gray Pit bulls in the yard. These Pits have muscles on top of muscles and look like they weigh no less than 250 EACH. Everytime I pass by I think about what would happen if they got out of that fence.

    Reason #1 why I don’t trust animals.

  • KLo

    yet, owners of these dogs are in denial they are dangerous and can’t be trusted

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • the guest

    Those dogs are being polite. They don’t have to “get loose”. When they feel ready, Pit Bulls of that size and muscle mass can easily knock the fence down or dig under it. Please be careful.

    Years ago there was an article about a black mom who would walk her kids to school past a house with a pit bull. The pit bull did break through the fence and mauled her nine year old son to death.

    Years ago we had neighbors who thought it was cute that their dog was part wolf which makes the animal unpredictable. Why people think potential danger is cute. It’s also not fair to the animals.

    And I LOVE animals especially dogs.

  • tap tap

    I live in Miami and a lot of people in predominantly black and hispanic neighborhoods have these dogs…Which is illegal in our county. A lot of owners lie about the breed when animal ccontrol is called.. UGH ?

  • lovelygamour

    Pits were breed for attacks. They are fighting dogs. Idiots get these dogs and then become scared of them, thus leaving everyone else to deal with. These things need to die out. Every country that use to be under the british flag has a culture of infriging on everyone else. Also of non self-preservestion(sp). These dogs need to be ban. Most are inbreed, the owners cant feed them like they should, and they belong in a bull fighting ring. The usa is so scary. Guns, cars, and dogs. I love my country but there are too many violent and lazy people here.

  • lovelygamour

    I cant. You have to be in control 24/7 and I cant. You cant cry, let someone else lead, or show any weakness. This pit didnt trust and respect her so he turned. These dogs need to be banned. Most of the people I see with them are either scary or short tempered.

  • Shira Harding-James

    I was just thinking the same thing lol

  • Tap Tap

    Ugh these dogs are so dangerous. The house behind my my mom had pitbulls that stayed jumping the fence and roaming the neighborhood. Everytime animal control was called the guy would lie about the breed. For years you had to be extremely careful, when at my mom. Fast forward to 2016, one of the dogs attacked his mom, almost taking her eye completly out. Dr’s said a little bit more she would have lost her entire eye. Of course now the dogs are completely gone and he feels like shit that his mom got attacked. UGH this guy had no regards for other people and their safety for years. karma is a bitch

  • lovelygamour

    A lot of people get pits cause they are cowardly. Thats why these dogs need to be ban. They are walking weapons and it takes a certain type of person to be able to manage them.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Lmmfbao I agree with you though.

  • lovelygamour

    I hate people like that. They live through their dogs. These dogs are not meant for regular people. The neighborhood should shun him.
    I wonder did animal control destroy them or did he let them loose somewhere.
    I hate people sometime. Its like they force you to move.

  • lovelygamour

    They will probably get another pit to prove a point.

  • lovelygamour

    This is advice that every owner should get. These dogs are really for people with money. They need things and time. This should not be a common breed.

  • lovelygamour

    You really have to be prepared. The dog need special food, a gate, special leash/chain. Its a lifestyle. You cant show sadness or let your guard down. The adoption place cant tell you all the quirks about the dog. The dog also has to like you or it wont work.

  • Tap Tap

    I think he lied at the hospital and said a stray dog wandered into the yard and attacked her SMH. The dogs are gone but where ever he took them, people are in danger. That dog has attacked and had a taste of human blood.

  • side_i

    I think all dogs are different, my dog loves it but other things agitate him. Yesterday my nephew kept blowing a noise maker at him while he was minding his business he gave him a warning growl, got his a s s together real quick.

  • lovelygamour

    Im 5’10. At a crowded hall a guy was trying to get through. I threw my arm up for him to go under but he had a look on his face. He looked like, “this is my life”. I didnt mean anything by it but I felt bad after. I dont think anyone was paying attention.

  • the guest

    Never trust a pit bull dog. Love and care for a pit bull with caution.

  • lovelygamour

    they want to be masters but these dogs are breed to be on the look out. I dont go in people houses if they have one. Its not worth it.

    If you’re going to have an aggressive dog, you need to invest the time and energy into providing proper training and socialization. I was aware that some people were terrified of my dog; so, I kept him on a short leash, walking right by my side. I taught him not to pull and yank me down the street, because I am the pack leader and I set the pace and direction of travel.

    The was once America’s national dog and it was the breed of dog that ran with the little rascals. Not the breed it’s people. However, if you wanna put sweaters and sh#t on a dog get a min poodle. These dogs can’t be trusted now because years of bad breeding.

  • brooklyn23

    Facts. Someone told me when a dog attacks to punch it in the nose. I had to visualize that and told myself “but ninga the nose is to close to the mouf” I just pray the people I love and care for along with myself never will be subjected to that. Then mofos say you’re not suppose to run if a dog is chasing you. Well word if there’s no car to climb up on (And I’m sure they can make their way on top) wtf you suppose to do.

  • brooklyn23

    And it’s fcked up because most of the time it’s negligent careless folks you own these already reckless breeds. I hate, I mean really hate when I see movies in the streets with their beasts and have no leash on them. Like etc. Man if I had a gun I’m shooting both of y’all

    Exactly, I don’t understand why humans in a lot of these cases never get blamed. Just like an animal will be an animal and you can’t completely trust them nor a human. Humans do dumb things, the animal reacts and then it’s a demon.

    Maybe Scarface had a bad upbringing he could’ve been abused and this family rescued him or he could’ve just been a bad apple.

    The whole situation is unfortunate all around. But I can’t stand people who make sweeping generalizations about the breed or negative generalizations about RESPONSIBLE owners .

  • Michelle

    Condolences to the family. Dogs are truly wonderful creatures. That being said, it is vital that people understand what type of dog they are adopting or purchasing. Before you bring any animal into your home, read up and study the behavior and proper care for the animal. You can also speak with a Vetinarian anytime for additional advice.

    I’m sure the dog let her know it did not want to put on the sweater. I’m sure she continued to try and put it on the dog. What was it suppose to do. That was the only thing the dog knew to make her stop. Now everyone is blaming the dog. Smdh. She should have left the poor thing alone
