North Aurora dog attack: Officers shoot pit bull that attacked boy, then turned on its owner

NORTH AURORA, In poor health. (TOC) — Law enforcement officials had been compelled to shoot a canine after it attacked a baby then turned on its proprietor in North Aurora.

Police stated the canine assault occurred inside a townhouse within the 200-block of Hidden Creek Lane Thursday afternoon.

Shattered glass on the townhouse was left behind after the terrifying, violent encounter left two folks badly-injured and a canine wounded by gunfire.

“This was completely mind-boggling to me that he really attacked a baby with little provocation, if any in any respect,” stated the townhouse proprietor, who requested to stay nameless.

She stated her tenant within the Summer time Wind subdivision in North Aurora is the proprietor of the canine, a 5-year-old male purebred pit bull named Maximus.

“He is round me and my 5-year-old daughter every day,” she stated. “He lives with us. He is round my cats. No drawback.”

She stated her tenant’s pal introduced her 6-year-old son to the house they usually had been filling water balloons round 4 p.m. when one thing set Maximus off. The canine mauled the kid, then turned on his proprietor when he tried to guard the boy.

“When the items arrived, they weren’t in a position to get in,” North Aurora Police Chief David Fisher stated. “So the hearth division breached the door, and one of many officers went in whereupon the canine charged him and 4 photographs had been fired.”

“That did not kill him, surprisingly sufficient,” the townhouse proprietor stated. “The canine was, I imagine, walked out of the house after that or faraway from the house alive, clearly with each intention of euthanizing him on the veterinary’s workplace.”

The boy and the person had been each initially taken to Mercy Medical Heart with a number of severe accidents. Their circumstances, police say, have now been stabilized.
