Man Rescues Woman From Pit Bull Attack

kpho.com
PHOENIX — A man heard the screams of a woman being attacked by a pit bull and rushed to help her Monday, hitting the dog so hard he broke his baseball bat.

The man, who asked to be identified only as Robert, said the woman was walking her small dog near his central Phoenix house around 8:30 p.m. when the pit bull attacked her dog. When the woman picked up her dog to protect it, the pit bull started attacking her.

Robert said he heard the woman’s screams and ran outside with a broom to try to beat the pit bull away. When the broom didn’t faze the animal, Robert said, he grabbed his wooden baseball bat instead.

Robert said he hit the pit bull about six times, even breaking the bat, before the dog subsided.

Neighbors helped tie up the pit bull until police arrived to take it away.

Police said the animal had no tags and no one claimed it, so authorities weren’t sure who to hold responsible. Police said the dog would likely be euthanized.

Police said the woman suffered lacerations on her arms, but she and her dog were OK.
