Here’s a video link on the attack: Two Women Attacked by Pit Bull
North Tulsa, OK - Two women who were knocking on doors as part of a local church ministry project knocked on the wrong door this morning at around 10:00 CST. When a man opened the door, a pit bull lunged at the two women, knocked them over and savagely attacked them.
Mike Harrell, who works across the street, said he and a receptionist looked out a window after they heard loud noises. “We were trying to figure out what it was, and all of a sudden we hear this blood-curdling scream,” said Harrell.
Harrell got in his truck and drove over to the scene of the attack. He saw a large pit bull attacking a woman, another woman lying motionless on the ground, and the pit bull’s owner screaming and covered in blood.
Harrell hid behind a gate and yelled at the dog to get its attention. When it charged at him, he asked if the dog belonged to one of the people lying bloodied on the ground, and requested permission to shoot it. The dog’s owner said “yes,” and Harrell fired one round into the dog’s head to end the attack.
The two women suffered “extensive dog bite wounds to their faces, arms and legs” and are in “extremely critical condition” at St. John Medical Center, said Tulsa Officer Leland Ashley.
What other animal mauls people who knock on their owner’s door? And pit bull owners, if you know your dog is vicious, then why bother answering the door at all?
