Dog Attacks After Family Tries To Put Xmas Jumper On It
It was a cold day in Tampa, Florida, so Brenda Guerrero decided to pop a Christmas-themed jumper on the recently-adopted family dog, Scarface.
The dog, a pit bull mix, reportedly did not appreciate the gesture and began to attack the 52-year-old woman.
Her husband, Ismael, ran outside to help, as did their son Antoine, who jumped into the scuffle with a knife.
The 22-year-old stabbed the dog in the head and neck before all three ran back into the house.
Local animal control showed up with police and shot Scarface with a tranquiliser, but the dog wasn’t having any of it, managing to get into the house, where two children were.
Authorities used a bean bag gun and a taser before animal control was finally able to subdue and capture Scarface.
While Brenda and Ismael were both taken to hospital, Brenda's injuries are serious.
It’s unclear what will happen to Scarface.
