Pit bull attack under investigation in Wilmington

Larry Benson prayed to God as he fought off a pit bull attacking his 3-year-old Corine terrier, Mattie.

He prayed some more when Mattie was hospitalized following the attack near Wilmington’s Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Monday morning.

“My little doggie is just like a part of our family,” Benson said Tuesday. “I stayed up all night long praying and asked the Lord to just let me suffer some of that pain, which I did.

“Whew, I tell you now I was just so grateful this morning that they called me and told me I could come pick her up.”

Mattie, who is usually an animated pup, rested on Benson’s bed Tuesday afternoon. Several stitches could be seen near the dog’s now-shaved left front leg and shoulder. She also had a cone collar around her neck.

Jason Stowell, who owns Stewie the pit bull mix, said he was sickened by the incident and plans to cover the medical expenses for Mattie.
