A California man, Eric Quek, is considering his options after a horrific attack from his neighbor’s dog left him fighting for his life with serious injuries to his body. Mr. Quek and several of his neighbors had been complaining to animal control about their neighbor’s pit bulls and how they were often fearful walking on their own property. These dogs literally terrorized this neighborhood.
Quek was just spraying weeds on his small farm when the four dogs saw him and at once they ran towards him and started attacking. He fought them off with his pruning tools but he was no match for four adult pit bulls. Fortunately his other neighbor saw the attack and scared the dogs away. Quek spent several weeks in the hospital with serious personal injuries but luckily survived.
Even though animal control eventually put down three of the four dogs, the forth dog was said to have been transferred out of state to another home. It is doubtful the new owner would know anything about this dog’s past behavior.
