Pit Bull Attacks Entire Family After They Do THIS To Him!

According to a report from ABC 7, a pit bull’s fate remains uncertain after it attacked an entire family as they were trying to put a sweater on it.

Police say the dog, named Scarface, first attacked 52-year-old Brenda Guerrero then turned its attention on her husband Ismael when the latter tried to wrestle it off. That’s when the couple’s 22-year-old son Harris reportedly got a knife and began attacking Scarface, prompting the dog to switch its attention to him.

The three family members were eventually able to lock the dog outside the house and called police.

Police spokesman Eddy Durkin said the dog was “pretty aggressive” and had to be shot with a tranquilizer gun. When the dog got back into the house, police used a Taser and beanbag gun to subdue it. Animal Control subsequently took Scarface into custody.

that both Brenda and Ismael are being treated in the hospital for severe bites. It is not yet known if the dog will be euthanized.

News of this incident has sparked outrage among many commenters who blame the family for agitating Scarface.

“No dog living in Tampa Florida needs to put on a sweater,” wrote user blackbear251 on RT’s article. “The dog’s aggressiveness was only exceeded by the couple’s stupidity.”

“Why should that dog have to wear a sweater in the first place?” remarked Anne-Marie Amg.

User Green Turtle wrote, “putting a sweater on a dog in Florida? They were asking for trouble.”

Other users, however, were a bit less sympathetic to Scarface.

Pit bull ownership has been a hotly-debated topic in the United States, with some claiming the dogs are violent and unfit to be domesticated.

“Pit bulls are inherently dangerous,” wrote Blue Ring while Onno Frowein wrote, “pit bulls are the most dangerous and should be prohibited in houses with children.”

User Stuart Tootell argued, “pit bulls were and still are bred as killer dogs, they are not your average loving Fido.”
