A Pitbull has been put to sleep after attacking a grandmother as she filmed her Ice Bucket Challenge video.
Brenda Rigdon from Florida was attacked in front of her grandchildren as she tipped the bucket of icey water over her head, however she has only decided to release the video now after months of deliberation.
Warning: Graphic video.
The description of the video reads:
This was my sister’s dog who she only kept to stud out for breeding purposes. she took no time to train him or make him listen.
He was a wild dog and she should be ashamed for keeping him out of selfishness and not love.
Brenda was looking after the dog as her daughter no longer could. It was due to be returned to the dog pound where it was previously picked up.
Why a dog of this nature was allowed to roam free around her grandchildren, only she can answer. And when I say nature, I’m talking about the years of neglect and social rejection that this dog faced and would have continued to face.
As a stud dog, it would have been in and out of shelters and passed from pillar to post without ever receiving the love and affection it deserved from being a pup.
Luckily, Brenda lived to learn her lesson and now wants to get the message out there.
This should serve as a warning to all pet owners. Unless you are going to take the time to make an animal a pet then it will remain an animal.
