Disabled Woman Mauled To Death By Pit Bull She Fought To Get Back After Attack

Disabled Woman Mauled To Death By Pit Bull She Fought To Get Back After Previous Attack

November 4, 2013

BALTIMORE, MD – A woman who fought to have her pit bull returned after an attack last year, was mauled to death by that same pit bull after she fell out of her wheelchair.

According to reports, 56-year-old Terry Douglass suffered from cerebral palsy and has used a wheelchair for the last two years. On Friday, she fell out of her wheelchair while reaching for a glass of water. While on the ground, her 4-year-old pit bull, “Boosie,” attacked her and, according to Douglass’ daughter, “ripped her apart.”

Family members say Douglass was never known as a dog lover, but quickly grew attached to Boosie, a dog Douglass initially bought for protection. ”My mom had gotten to a point in her life when she felt like her kids didn’t need her any more, and she latched onto this dog,” said Douglass’ daughter, Tamathia Davis.

Davis said that two years ago, Boosie bit Douglass’ face so bad that, “whenever my mom would open her mouth, her cheek would open with it.” But Douglas defended the dog and refused to get rid of it. ”She loved that dog unconditionally,” said Davis.

More recently, it was Douglass’ nephew who was attacked by Boosie after he reached for some food that had dropped on the floor. Douglass tried to intervene, but was also bitten. It was this attack that landed Boosie in the custody of animal control.

Douglass’ family tried talking her into leaving the dog there, fearing for her safety. They tried to get the landlord to ban the dog and even begged animal control not to release the dog back to Douglass. But according to animal control, Douglass, “was adamant in getting the dog back.” She had the dog vaccinated for rabies and at the end of a mandatory quarantine period, animal control returned Boosie back to Douglass, stating the dog was not a threat to the public.

Douglass’ husband was home when the attack occurred, but could do nothing to stop it. He tried to revive Douglass with CPR, but was unsuccessful. Davis still does not understand why Boosie turned on the woman who had raised it with so much care. ”I know that my mother has been nothing but good to this dog,” she said. “My mom loved this dog so much, this dog would sleep in the bed with her.”

The dog died shortly after police shot it with a tranquilizer dart.

I just read that a witness believes the dog got spooked by a firecracker.

After he bit my nephew, he would have been outta there!

First she wasn't a dog lover, yet she raised this dog with such love? To me something is missing and odds are the dog was not properly raised.

She should have left the dog the first time around.

Dog attacks are scarry as hell. That dog should never have been allowed back.

I was attacked by my neighbor's bull mastif - this dog knew me from the time it was born. I was getting the mail and talking to my neighbor. I went to pet him like I had done a thousand times before and he lunged at my face. He latched on under my eye with his top teeth and my neck with the lower teeth...he took one big bite. He was on a leash and my neighbor got him off of me but it was awful. I went into shock, blood was everywhere -
It turns out when I went to pet him, his spiked collar twisted and that pain startled him, thus attacking me. This dogs head was bigger than mine, so I was very fortunate my neighbor was able to pull him off. 8 years later and I'm still terrified of big dogs - never was before that.

Pitbulls have weaknesses. When confronting a pitbull first mistake everyone makes is they run. Never run. Its very simple, instead, get low, get down at his level & you lock eyes with him, heres an example:

Ok, now you can try poking his eyes, that ususlly works, it renders him useless. But beware, the basterd can block it, heres an example:



Use your body weight, remember your bigger than him. Dont waste your time punching or kicking the pitbull, its a waste of time. Ive been assigned to hunt down packs of strays in the abandoned areas of Detroit. My comrades use dart guns, cross bows, & tazer, I use my bare hands and head. They call me the Pitbull Hunter, im the real deal, GET SOME!
