(PCM) It was not such a great start to the New Year for a family in Tampa, Florida after their pit bull mix named Scarface mauled a husband and wife who were attempting to dress him in a sweater.
We always thought dogs hated being put in those ridiculous things and it appears we are correct.
The dog not only attacked the husband and wife, but also attacked the couples 22-year old son who was attempting to break up the incident.
According to the Tampa police department, 52-year old Brenda Guerrero made an attempt to put a sweater on Scarface the dog when he suddenly began to attack. Her husband 46-year old Ismeal Guerrero tried to pull the dog off his wife, but then he too was attacked.
By this point the couple’s 22-year old son Antoine Harris grabbed a knife and stabbed the dog in the head and neck to stop the attack, but the dog then began attacking Harris as well. Eventually, the three family members were able to escape the home and leave the dog in the backyard.
The authorities say that the dog was still behaving incredibly aggressively when they arrived on the scene and in quite a “Cujo-esque” move even after being tazed by the authorities the dog was still able to escape and rip out the prongs of the tazer.
Scarface was eventually caught using a catch pole by animal control and his current condition is unknown. The family was taken to a local area hospital to treat their injuries which were considered serious, but not life-threatening. The family had only recently adopted Scarface from a local area shelter and neighbors claim the dog had already escaped and was caught roaming around the neighborhood several times.
Dogs do not like sweaters …. we repeat … dogs do not like sweaters! Well, maybe adorable little purse dogs do, but on a pitbull, you might want to think again!
