On Tuesday, November 20th, In Murrieta, California, Fred Filgo was walking his golden retriever “Bradley” when they were attacked by his friend’s Pit bull. Apparently the dog escaped under a garage door.
“He jumped up and bit me right in the stomach and that shook me up. It made me not want to get in front of him.”
Next the dog went after Bradley.
“I had my hand in his mouth trying to pull his mouth off my dog. And I had my face up against his. And I suddenly realized I wasn’t in a good place.” said Filgo.
Neighbors came to assist and eventually they got the pit to release its’ grip on the golden retriever.
Bradley has injuries totaling $1300 in vet bills as well as Filgo’s own medical expenses for his injuries. Despite the attack, Fllgo doesn’t know if the dog should be put down, and is not angry at the dog’s owner.
The pit bull is in quarantine for 10 days and the dog’s owner says he will be “getting rid” of the dog…
