It’s been a wild time here overnight, as a neighbor was attacked by pit bulls.
Yesterday evening around 6 p.m. Lisa was walking her little dog. Two pit bulls were wandering around the complex and attacked them.
The dogs belonged to the people who own the house across the brick walled fence in back. A huge tree in their yard had been jerked up by the roots during the big storm here. And the wall came tumbling down.
This was from the damage of the storm Tulsa experienced in June. And so the pit bulls were not contained in their yard.
There will probably be clean up from this storm for a very long time because of the massive damage. And so fences and carports are down all around here.
The Pit Bulls From Another Neighborhood:
Lisa said the pit bulls came out of nowhere and were trying to get to Kinzi, her little white dog. Then they attacked her as well.
She happened to be walking near the apartment where a policeman lives. He came outside when he heard her yelling: “They’re going to kill my dog.”
He called for back up, and the woman who owns the pit bulls was driving around looking for them. They were caught and then she took Lisa to the urgent care clinic for pets.
They shaved Kinzi’s back and sewed up the bite wounds. There are tubes draining from her back and she has to wear one of those head cones. She looks pitiful.
When I went down to see them this morning, Kinzi rested her coned head on my walking boot. She doesn’t understand why she has to wear the cone of course.
Right now Lisa is finally getting medical care. The urgent care clinics for people were closed last night after they left the vet. And she didn’t want to go to the emergency room and sit half the night.
So she managed to get an appointment with her own doctor this morning, and that’s where she is now. Only her right hand appears to be hurt. The dogs punctured the skin 5 times and it’s terribly swollen and bruised.
A neighbor took her to the doctor. I was going to take her, but she goes to a little town outside of here to see her doctor. And I’m not that comfortable driving very far with my walking boot on.
Lisa did not press charges. I know she doesn’t want to see the dogs euthanized.
But there needs to be a secure fence temporarily put up till they get the brick wall back in place.
I kept thinking: What if it had been Ivy? Ivy has never been outside, and I won’t ever be letting her outside.
I had a post all ready for you today, but I felt that this took precedence. I’ll be helping her with whatever she needs. And her older sister lives in Tulsa.
Keeping The Neighbors Updated:
Last night I texted Steve who’s visiting his son in Seattle to tell him about it. And I got in touch with John so he wouldn’t be walking Boomer around last night.
I didn’t know at the time that they’d been caught and taken home. As I was relying on texts from Lisa during the evening.
So I kept this little corner of the neighborhood apprised of what was happening. Lisa was texting me off and on while they were at the urgent care clinic for pets.
Poor little Kinzi. And Lisa’s cat keeps hissing at her because she has the cone around her head.
I’ll keep you updated.
