Pit bulls thought to be responsible for many dog attacks

Many Illinois residents have probably heard about the potential dangers of owning or even simply being around pit bulls. When in the wrong hands, this breed of dog is known to be involved in numerous dog bite incidents across the nation. What many people may not realize is just how damaging these dog attacks can be. Common injuries can include skull fractures, hip fractures and severe scarring.

Illinois woman sentenced to jail for dog attack

An Illinois woman was sentenced to jail on June 6 after pleading guilty to one count of reckless conduct after her pit bull mix dogs attacked a 5-year-old boy. She will be required to spend the next 30 weekends in jail.

5-year-old recovering nicely after dog bites his face

After the family pit bull bit him in the face, the 5-year-old victim is coming along just fine and should be released from a hospital soon. The pit bull apparently bit the boy in the face after he scratched the animal's neck. However, no one is exactly sure what happened because the boy was the only witness to the incident.
