    GOOD: 11 y/o Bites Pit Bull To Fend Off Attack - Sao Paolo, Brazil

    My Way News - Boy, 11, bites pit bull to fend off attack

    SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) - An 11-year old boy is in Brazil's media spotlight after sinking his teeth into the neck of a dog that attacked him. Local newspapers reported on Thursday that Gabriel Almeida was playing in his uncle's backyard in the city of Belo Horizonte when a pit bull named Tita lunged at him and bit him in the left arm.

    Almeida grabbed the dog by the neck and bit back - biting so hard that he lost a canine tooth.

    Almeida tells the O Globo newspaper: "It is better to lose a tooth than one's life."

    Stonemasons working nearby chased the dog away before it could attack again.

    The Folha de S. Paulo newspaper said the boy received four stitches at a local hospital while the dog was taken to a pound and may be killed.
    Good for the kid, smart thinking, going for the throat.

    Saw the article too in NY daily news. The title should read "Bark worse than bite"

    Resourceful kid.

    First time I ever heard of a human losing a canine tooth by biting a canine.

    I doubt that was actually a pit bull terrier.

    I agree.

    I hate the irreponsible owners that cause people to think this way.

    maybe, maybe not, but story said in clear terms it was a Pit Bull named Tita, seems to be pretty detailed info

    its not all irresponsible owners (I agree there are a bunch of jerks that train their dogs to be violent, etc, and not all of them are pit bulls); There have been numerous pit bulls that were "tame", "family pets", and never hurt anybody, but they attack people unprovoked a lot more often than any other breed out there, thats why I don't like them

    Yep, it was probably a golden retriever or maybe a beagle.

    In the second pit bull attack in the city in two days, a 3-year-old boy was bitten on the face and neck by a female pit bull on 905 Belmont Ave. in Brooklyn at 2:30 a.m. yesterday, police said. The child was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

    The owner of two male pit bulls who attacked an elderly man Tuesday morning, James McNair, 28, was charged with second-degree assault, not having proper collars or tags for his dogs, and illegal possession of fireworks in his home, officials said. Henry Piotrowski, 90, had a leg amputated following the attack and is now in critical, but stable, condition.

    If the media can't get their facts straight about guns, what makes you think they can get their facts straight about dogs?
    but they attack people unprovoked a lot more often than any other breed out there
    There are [B]no[B] reliable statistics to support that.

    I'm glad the kid kept his head and survived, but unless someone can show me proof that it was a Pit Bull I'll take that with a grain of salt.

    Just had one in PGH. - attack on an 8 year old boy. Required 200 stitches to patch him up. Pit got through the fence.
    Pretty serious charges are going to be filed against the owners of the dog.
    Almost as if the owners attacked and mauled the boy personally.
    Just an added informational FYI & not a judgment call on my part.
    These days plan on losing your home and everything else you happen to own if your dog (any breed) seriously maims a child. Even it's your own kid.

    I'm neither defending nor attacking pit bulls, but the fact the dog gave up after being bit sure makes it sound like something other than a pit bull.
