A local family is mourning the loss of a child after a family dog killed a 3-year-old outside his Apple Valley home. Authorities received a frantic 911 call from the 23000 block of Goshute Avenue from a man who said his pit bull had turned on his son on Saturday just before 3 pm Apparently they had gone outside to play and the boy, identified as Omar Martinez, left one of his toys inside the home. The father went back inside the home for only moments to get the toy, but when he returned, his son was lying on the ground and had already stopped breathing. "This is a tragic, tragic incident that's occurred, especially with the family pet," said Arden Wiltshire of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. Sheriff's deputies said the dog was so aggressive toward paramedics that they could not even move in to help the child. Paramedics retreated to their vehicles and had to wait until deputies arrived. A deputy shot and killed the dog because it was reportedly out of control. The boy was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. "I feel so sad for them because I know them, and I know they love him very much," said Isabel Palacios, a family friend. Palacios described the victim as a boy who was always smiling. "Everybody loved him 'cause he's the only grandson they have," she said. Officials have not said whether the dog was a mix or a pure-bred pit bull. The Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident.

Gov. Paterson's dog attacked a state carpenter -- proving it's the only living thing with any bite in Albany. Cheerio, a 6-pound Maltese, bit Thomas Keyser in the leg in what sources said was at least the third attack by the pooch on a state worker this year. A source familiar with the incident said Keyser, who was fixing a staircase rail, had to "repeatedly shake his leg up in the air because the goddamn dog wouldn't let go." Paterson was in New York City at the time. "The dog came running out of the kitchen and bit me on my calf," Keyser, 53, of upstate Troy told The Post. "Everyone over there knows the dog is aggressive. I know plenty of these guys who got bit, and if they can't put this dog in a cage, I can't understand it." Paterson spokesman Peter Kauffmann confirmed the attack. A source said last night that Cheerio had been caged and brought to a state Health Department lab for observation and to make sure he had received required vaccines. Kauffmann said Cheerio had been up to date with shots. A source also said other state workers had been bitten by Cheerio. "The elevator guy got bit, the painter got bit," the source said. An Office of Government Services spokesman, Brad Maione, said he was unaware of any other biting charges

A pit bull found running wild attacked at least three people at the Short Line Express gas station on Skypointe Drive in Centennial Hills. The youngest victim is said to be just eight years old. She was with her dad getting gas when the dog approached them and began biting. An employee called the police after seeing them scrambling to the top of their car for safety. As the dog attempted to jump onto their car, a Good Samaritan angled his SUV next to the vehicle so the man and his daughter could get away. The pit bull, estimated to be 80 pounds, then ran inside of the Short Line Express Market at the gas station, where it bit another man. The man dragged the dog outside by the collar to keep a hold of it; the dog's jaws locked on the man's arm. All three of the people who were bitten were treated at the hospital and should be okay. Police at the scene reportedly shot and killed the pit bull, which was then removed by Las Vegas Animal Control. The dog was wearing a collar but did not have tags; police are working to find its owner.

PHOENIX -- A man heard the screams of a woman being attacked by a pit bull and rushed to help her Monday, hitting the dog so hard he broke his baseball bat. The man, who asked to be identified only as Robert, said the woman was walking her small dog near his central Phoenix house around 8:30 pm when the pit bull attacked her dog. When the woman picked up her dog to protect it, the pit bull started attacking her. Robert said he heard the woman's screams and ran outside with a broom to try to beat the pit bull away. When the broom didn't faze the animal, Robert said, he grabbed his wooden baseball bat instead. Robert said he hit the pit bull about six times, even breaking the bat, before the dog subsided. Neighbors helped tie up the pit bull until police arrived to take it away. Police said the animal had no tags and no one claimed it, so authorities weren't sure who to hold responsible. Police said the dog would likely be euthanized. Police said the woman suffered lacerations on her arms, but she and her dog were OK. 7:33 am MST February 19, 2008
WARNING SOME IMAGES SHOW BITE INJURIES! TAMARAC, Fla. -- A Tamarac man put an end to his "Trouble" when he shot and killed the neighbor's pit bull that escaped from the house and attacked him. "We had a report of shots fired, a dead dog (and) a man bleeding all over the place," Broward Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Leljedal said. The pit bull somehow escaped her cage, jumped through a screen window and attacked her next-door neighbor. "I seen the pit bull in the guy's front yard going crazy and barking at him," neighbor Fred Pulver said of the attack. Pulver said he heard Paulo Jean tell the pit bull to go away several times, but Jean was mauled on both arms and his buttocks. That's when Jean, 35, took action. "The man has a concealed weapon's permit and he pulled his weapon and shot and killed the pit bull," Leljedal said. According to the BSO, Jean used a .380 semiautomatic handgun to shoot the pit bull three times. He was taken by ambulance to Broward General Medical Center to be treated for his injuries. Trouble apparently lived up to her name and was known throughout the neighborhood. Residents told deputies Trouble could be friendly but was sometimes aggressive. After the dog got loose, children playing in the neighborhood could be heard screaming, "Trouble is out." This was not the first incident involving Trouble. In 2006, Trouble attacked her owner's father in Davie. John Brooks wasn't home when Trouble got out. He said he is more concerned about his neighbor than the fact that his pit bull is dead.
