Pit Bull Kills Owner — Not First Attack

today'sheadline_logoAnd so this happened. A Baltimore woman was mauled to death by her own pit bull, the same dog she’d been raising since it was puppy. 56 year old Terry Douglas who was wheelchair-bound, suffered fatal injuries after “Boosie”, the pit’s name, viciously attacked her around 12:45AM on Friday morning.


A close neighbor of Douglas stated in an interview with CBS Baltimore:

“You raise it from its young, you never expect something like that to happen. Me having dogs of my own–whether it’s a pit bull, German Shepard, or the little shih tzus or anything– I’ve never experience nothing like that, so it’s just sad.” -Wyna Powell

UPDATE: CBS Baltimore has since discovered that this wasn’t the pit bull’s first attack at the owner, but was released back into the woman’s custody by authorities shortly after claiming the dog wasn’t a threat to the public. According to The Baltimore Sun, this was the pit bull’s 3rd attack. Once before biting its owner and a second time biting its owner and one of her sons. Douglas’ daughter stated in an interview:

“She loved that dog unconditionally. My mom had gotten to point in her life when she felt like her kids didn’t need her any more, and she latched onto this dog. I don’t hate all pit bulls because not all pit bulls are bad. I know that my mother has been nothing but good to this dog. My mom loved this dog so much, this dog would sleep in the bed with her.”

Since the attack, the dog was tranquilized by police, and then died shortly after.
