Dog Bite News in Louisiana

  • On March 25, 2014 in Houma, Louisiana  an allegedly 130 pound dog fatally attacked a four-year-old girl in an apartment. According to news reports, Louisianathe mother tried to fight the dog off, was unsuccessful, and the dog turned and attacked her. Police arrived, and they killed the dog with gunshot  after supposedly the dog  is charged at them.  Twelve shots were fired at the dog. A photograph of the dog posted on the Internet suggests that it was  probably some type of mastiff mix,  and not principally a pit bull type dog.  Pit bull type dogs are considerably smaller in size. Police described the dog as a “monster”.
