Thankfully the horse was OK. Its not every day we are blessed with a good outcome. All to often Pit Bulls kill large animals like horses and cows while they are enclosed in a field. These large helpless animals usually die a slow and painful death due to blood loss while the pit bull is hanging in the air with their teeth sunk into the animals nose or mouth. These incidents among others are far too frequent and luckily in this case, the woman riding the horse was not injured.

A pit bull died Sunday when a horse it was chasing and biting was struck by an SUV and fell on the dog, crushing it, a police sergeant said Monday.

The incident occurred around 2:54 p.m. at Tyler Avenue and Robinson Street a few blocks south of Arlington Avenue, Sgt. Christian Dinco said.

When the dog started chasing and biting the horse, the horse bucked its rider. The horse grew disoriented and ran straight into traffic and was struck by the SUV, Dinco said.

The horse suffered some bruises and scratches, said John Welsh, spokesman for the Riverside County Department of Animal Services.

The pit bull appeared to be a stray, Welsh and Dinco said.

That dog must have been a Golden Retriever. Pit bulls are loving and gentle animals.

Wait, the horse was hit by an SUV and knocked down hard enough to kill the dog and it only had bruises and scratches? I didn't realize how tough horses are.

I love karma stories like this. A buddy of mine used to work at Safeway (grocery store), and some goon grabbed a bunch of cheese and dashed out the front door, with staff chasing him. He ran past a parked bus and darted out into the street, only to be hit hard by a Safeway delivery truck :D

I just read that a group of pitbulls killed 2 shetland ponies in Ohio. ??? Did anyone read about this? Unfortunately they nipped at the genitals until the horses bled to death.

"Hey, I tell ya, y'know? My wife did that to me! I told her I would give my left nut for some oral sex. She said 'okay'. Ooh!"

STAMFORD, Connecticut — The frantic owner of a 200-pound chimpanzee that went berserk in Connecticut pleaded with police over the phone to help her stop the animal from mauling her friend, begging them to "Hurry, please! He ripped her face off."

Police in Stamford released tapes of Sandra Herold's desperate call to police Monday as her 15-year-old chimp, Travis, was attacking 55-year-old Charla Nash. (To hear the harrowing audio, click on the video link directly to the left. WARNING: The content is graphic.)

The chimp can be heard grunting at times on the tape, as Herold cries, "He's killing my friend!"

The dispatcher says, "Who's killing your friend?"

Herold replies, "My chimpanzee! He ripped her apart! Shoot him, shoot him!"

After police arrive, one officer radios back: "There's a man down. He doesn't look good," he says, referring to the disfigured Nash. "We've got to get this guy out of here. He's got no face."

The chimp attacked Nash as Herold, 70, frantically stabbed her beloved pet with a butcher knife and pounded him with a shovel.

"He looked at me like, 'Mom, what did you do?'" Herold told NBC's "Today Show" in an interview aired Wednesday. "It was horrific what happened and I had to do what I had to do, but still, I'll miss him for the rest of my life."

Nash remained in critical condition early Wednesday with major injuries to her face and hands.

Police said they are looking into the possibility of criminal charges. A pet owner can be held criminally responsible if he or she knew or should have known that an animal was a danger to others.

Police said that the chimp was agitated earlier Monday and that Herold had given him the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in some tea. Police said the drug had not been prescribed for the 15-year-old chimp.

Investigators said they were also told that Travis had Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness with flu-like symptoms that can lead to arthritis and meningitis in humans.

"Maybe from the medications he was out of sorts," Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin said.

Nash had gone to Herold's home in Stamford on Monday to help her coax the chimp back into the house after he got out, police said. After the animal lunged at Nash when she got out of her car, Herold ran inside to call the police emergency line and returned with a knife.

After the initial attack, Travis ran away and started roaming Herold's property until police arrived, setting up security so medics could reach the critically injured woman, Conklin said.

But the chimpanzee returned and went after several of the officers, who retreated into their cars, Conklin said. An officer shot Travis several times after the animal opened the door to his cruiser and started to get in.

The wounded chimpanzee fled into the house and retreated to his living quarters, where he died.

When he was younger, Travis starred in TV commercials for Old Navy and Coca-Cola, made an appearance on the "Maury Povich Show" and took part in a television pilot, according to a 2003 story in The Advocate newspaper of Stamford.

BAN ALL CHIMPS.
