  1. An unfortunate occurrence. The majority of dog attack victims never make the news however and most of the time the financial, medical and emotional burden are simply the survivor’s to endure. In Virginia an elderly woman walking in her own neighborhood by an unleashed Pit Bull is mauled to death-no charges whatsoever(Evangeline Brooks-Richmond VA). Perhaps the red Charger driver had had enough.
