A pit bull is being called a neighborhood nuisance after it went on the attack against a dog half its size, and residents are saying this is not the first time the pit bull has shown its bad side.
Jorge Ramos was walking his dog in the White Plains area of Sunrise when he said the pit bull suddenly attacked his Schnauzer, Scotty.
Markely Medina lives a few blocks away from Ramos and his dog. He witnessed the attack. “I was walking over here, and at first, I don’t really know what’s going on, I don’t know if it’s two dogs wrestling, and then I see the pit bull,” said Medina.
Medina was driving home on Saturday evening when he saw Ramos trying to tear the pit bull off of his dog Scotty. “The pit bull is just mauling the dog, just destroying him,” said Medina.
The pit bull eventually stopped attacking Scotty when Medina scared him by throwing a water bottle. “I threw the water bottle really hard,” said Medina.
After the fight, Scotty was in very bad shape. He had a large bite wound on his neck. Medina drove Ramos and his dog to the vet, even though they had never met before the attack. “I did not know him at all,” said Medina.
Ramos believes that had it not been for Medina’s help, Scotty would have died.
