Pit bull mauls children

Darron Turk explains how his pit bull dog snapped its chain and attacked his nieces at his home in Silsbee on Thursday, May 3, 2007. A neighbor killed the dog with a shotgun. The children remain hospitalized.

Several laws are going through the Texas Legislature to punish owners of vicious dogs.

Looks like Texas just may have it's law limiting tethering, fingers crossed! Thanks so much for bringing awareness for this story, we log chained dogs attacks on children on our site at http://www.mothersagainstdogchaining.org
