    Lightbulb Jogger Killed By 4 Pitbull's In Los Angeles County

    Animal control authorities say they are using a helicopter in the search for four pit bulls suspected of killing a 63-year-old jogger in Los Angeles County..

    Authorities are warning people to be on the lookout for four tan-colored pit bulls, and say they have seized several dogs in a search for those who may have taken part in the attack.

    Sheriff's Lt. John Corina told reporters that a woman in a car saw the dogs attacking the female jogger Thursday morning. The witness called 911 and honked her horn to try to get the dogs to stop.

    "When the first deputy on scene saw one dog still attacking the woman, he tried to chase the dog away," Corina said. "The dog ran off into the desert, then turned around and attacked the deputy, the deputy fired a round at the dog and tried to kill the dog, and the dog took off into the desert."

    The woman died while she was in an ambulance on the way to a hospital near the high desert community of Littlerock, about 65 miles northeast of Los Angeles, said Evelina Villa, county animal control spokeswoman.

    The coroner's office was investigating to determine the cause of death.

    Sheriff's officials alerted people in the area to watch for the four tan dogs, and they were using a helicopter to search for them.

    Later Thursday sheriff's and animal control officials served a search warrant on a home near the site of the attack and took away eight dogs, six of them pit bulls and two of them of mixed breeds, the Sheriff's Department said in a Statement.

    Investigators were trying to determine whether the dogs were involved in the attack.

    A 29-year-old man from the house was arrested on suspicion of cultivating marijuana.

    It was unclear whether the dogs that attacked the woman had collars or owners.

    "In these areas, you might have a situation where people dump animals out in rural areas," said John Mlynar, a spokesman for the nearby city of Palmdale. He added that he'd never heard of an attack like Thursday's.

    Residents who live near the site of the attack said stray dogs are constantly roaming the area and have attacked people before.

    "It's really scary," Diane Huffman, of Littlerock, told KABC-TV. "I don't know what to think. I really think I'm going to be getting a gun to protect myself."

    I have to ask how will the woman Diane Huffman be allowed to carry a firearm in CA. Unless she is famous or rich she will be a criminal! Wonder if she will want th gun laws in CA changed to allow her to be able to protect herself?

    THis is a really sad story. I am personally a supporter of all bully breed dogs, especially APBT's. I would like to see the dogs that committed this attack first of all. Any dog who is brindle in color or a mutt mixed with pit are just labeled PIT BULLS. Many times it's mutts. But to my real point in this trajedy is that an actual firearm might not have needed to have survived this attack. Pepper Spray would have done alot to stop the attack. There are bad dogs of all breeds, I am sure this is big news simply because these dogs where said to be PIT BULLS. I have owned many Pit Bulls in my lifetime. I have trainned them in all forms and worked around more than I can count. I had one bite in all those years and it was from an abused dog I tried to rescue. People come before animals in my book, but I hate to see any living creature made out to be something that in most cases they are far from it. May this victim RIP and God Bless her family and friends. And if they find the owner of these dogs who had to know they were aggressive, well he should be locked up for not properly securing them. JUst my 2 Cents. OH one more thing, at the age of 13 my daughter, raised with many PITS in the home and in the yard. She jumped into help me break up more than one accidental rumble that happened over a 25 year period, while grown mean ran for the car! lol

    If I am being threatened with aggression by any dog that is of size to cause me injury then I am not interested in preserving them by using bear spray et al, I want to eliminate them with prejudice--AKA shoot them dead. I am not prejudiced towards breeds, and I do not support breed bans, but I do walk a lot and encounter threatening dogs far too often. Most of them are not pit bull types. In my county I can shoot them. That is what IMO should be done, then the owners cited for having an aggressive dog and allowing it to stray without owner control.

    What?
    I read nowhere that the actual dogs involved had been identified and captured.
    Also, a rabies check may be required by law but is irrelevent. It is rare for these attacks to be caused by rabies. Rabies has very distinct symptoms. Said symptoms are not mentioned in the report.

    I think what matters is that one of her first thoughts is that she needs protection and that she realizes one of the first means of affecting that is a firearm.

    Kindly do not forget this is CA, where we must probably find out if the dogs were "provoked"--after all pit bulls also have rights -ask PETA. Interesting comment in story is that a deputy tried to shoot one of the dogs and apparently missed. Threads and replies on this forum are continually discussing protection against dogs and I have always maintained that a charging rampaging dog that is almost on top of you in a second is not a good candidate for disposal by firearm--you carry bear spray (will stop a grissly) you carry a baton, you carry a serrated knife--any and all of these less lethal defensive items offer you more realistic opportunities to defend. A firearm will probably miss in all the commotion and activity of a crazed dog and could easily end up causing injury to others in the area.

    This is why my property is posted. If your pitbull enters my property and does not obey my order to scram, i will return it in to you black garbage bag. You can pick it up at the end of the driveway.

    Really? Pepper spray might stop the person trying to rape your wife. It might stop the guy robbing you at knife point. You're really willing to bet you're life on "might", because you're an animal lover? I love dogs too, I have three, but if a dog or any other animal attacked me and I felt my life was in danger, it dies. Not me. Leave the pepper spray to the teenage girls.
