Pit bull attack reports are not only being exposed by the Chicago media, but are sweeping the country after a 2-year-old boy was killed in nearby Wisconsin and a 7-year-old boy was killed in Galesburg, Illinois.
In Louisiana, a woman has lost an eye and had to have both arms amputated after her own two pit bull dogs turned on her.
Three of Linda Henry's pit bulls attacked her last Wednesday, and KENS5 news has now reported that she is in critical condition.
Henry's neighbor quickly called the police after hearing the 54-year-old screaming for help inside her home.
According to police reports, when police arrived, the dogs tried to attack them too.
Both pit bulls were shot and killed by police officers on the scene.
