A Woman, Age 68, is Mauled to Death by Pit Bull Mix Dogs – Part 6Monday, August 31st, 2015
The circumstances surrounding the fatal pit bull attack on 79-year-old Kenneth Ford of Pahrump, Nevada, are absolutely terrifying. The following is what happened in the March 13 pit bull attack and afterward:
Ford had been helping his neighbors by feeding his cats. The neighbor has a two-home property, and the tenant next door owned three pit bulls. The dogs were behind a six-foot fence, but they jumped the fence as Ford was feeding the cats. Two men heard Ford screaming for help as the three pit bulls brutally attacked him. Both men ran to Ford’s aid and were seriously injured by the dogs as they pulled him to the yard next door. Again, the dogs found a way through the fence and continued their attack on Ford. One of the men trying to save Ford finally went and got a shotgun. Even after shooting two of the pit bulls with the gun, all three dogs continued attacking. Finally, Ford was rescued from the dogs and transported to a nearby hospital. He died on April 14 as a result of the injuries suffered in the relentless pit bull attack. Immediately after the attack, law enforcement officers arrested the pit bulls’ owner. There was evidence that the pit bulls had a history of both being at large and of being aggressive.
