Pit bull attacks three family members

A family pit bull that was sitting on a bed in a family’s residence at 124 Bellvernon Avenue in the Town of Wallkill, attacked three members including an eight-year-old girl late Sunday afternoon.

Family members told Wallkill Police they were sitting on the bed petting the animal when the three-year-old dog bit Janese Jones, 8, in the face. When Rosalind King, 57, and Darren Gardner, 55, who were both there, tried to stop the attack, the dog turned on them as well.

Janese and Rosalind were able to be removed from the house through a window, but Gardner was trapped inside.

Officers used a Taser, a ballistic shield and a catch pole to restrain the dog so that Gardner could be removed from the home.

The dog died a short time later.   Its remains will be tested for diseases.

Janese was treated at Orange Regional Medical Center for a bite to her face. King was treated for bites to her hands and arms. Gardner was treated for bites to his arms and torso.
