Hero gran, 50, is horrifically mauled as she wrestled neighbor’s pitbull with her bare hands to protect grandkids aged two and four after it lunged at her, dragged her from her doorway and tore chunks out of her leg, arm and face
A heroic grandmother was violently mauled as she wrestled her neighbor’s violent pitbull with her bare hands to protect her two young grandchildren, leaving her dripping with blood after the dog tore chunks out of her face, legs and arms.
Rhonda Stickney, from Motley, Minnesota, said the dangerous animal lunged at her daughter Tiffani, 27, grandson Jaxsyen, four, and Keyahra, two, as they stood in her doorway.
The giant dog went on to tear chunks out of her arm and face. Stickney claims she then grabbed hold of the dog’s jaw to stop it from biting her further until the owner came over to wrestle it off and drag it inside.
The mother-of-five believes she will have scars for life on her chin, eye, arm and leg as a result of the incident.
She added: ‘My grandchildren saw the whole thing. My daughter was screaming. It tore at my face and latched onto my arm.
‘My arm was punctured so when they went to rinse it to clean it out, it ran straight out the other side.
She remains on medication months later and has to go to hospital twice a week to get her leg repacked.
Following the horrific ordeal, Stickney contacted the police. The dog was not destroyed but the neighbor was forced to put a microchip in the animal and make it wear a muzzle whenever it goes outside.
She added: ‘The police came over and they were going to deem it as “possible dangerous” but I pushed it and showed them the photos of my injuries and they deemed it as a dangerous dog.
‘They made her microchip it and wear a muzzle when it goes outside. That’s not ok when there are kids around.’
Explain to me how a dog that jumps a fence, attacks children, and rips holes in a woman’s face, leg, and arm isn’t pit down?
I’ve had to have wounds packed before. It hurts like a bastard.
I try to be neighborly, but I’d shoot the fucking dog.
