Racine boy tries to save friend from pit bull attack | Local News – WISN Home

 

Two 7-year-old boys riding their bikes in Racine over the weekend were attacked by a pit bull without warning.

WISN 12 News reporter Christina Palladino talked with one of the boys who said he had no choice but to fight back to save his buddy.

Jhyshon Bean and his friend were playing outside Saturday afternoon when he said a neighbor’s pit bull came running around the corner and attacked them.

The dog lunged at his friend first, nearly ripping off both ears and biting him all over his body.

Jhyshon said the dog turned on him when he tried to intervene.

Eventually, Jhyshon’s uncle was able to get the dog off both boys but was also bitten by the pit bull.

Neighbors said the owner put the dog in a van and took off. Police later arrested the dog’s owner. The animal was found in Kenosha.

Jhyshon’s grandmother, Jennifer Jones, said the dog has long been a problem in the neighborhood.

“I felt that she should have been outside and make sure that they didn’t let that dog out,” she said.

Both boys’ families said it will be a long road to recovery.

Jhyshon needs a walker to get around and can’t be outside. He’s also having nightmares.

The other 7-year-old may have permanent hearing loss because of the damage to his ears. Doctors at Children’s Hospital were able to reattach them.
