Many calls to the Niagara County SPCA are instructing them to INVESTIGATE THE FAMILY. They are currently concentrating on the actions of the dog. How would the dog know to do this? Not unless someone TRAINED HIM.

In some of the news clips from different stations shows the dogs is scared in the cage and shaking. Not acting like an "aggressive" Pit Bull as they are stating he is.

I find this the most ridiculous story I have ever heard. I look forward to hearing the results of the investigation. I agree that the family should be investigated!

Here is another clip and article:

http://www.wkbw.com/news/local/8419972.html

All they keep saying is they want to destroy the dog.

One can only imagine the market on the internet for this typeof behavior.

"Det. Capt. Larry Eggert says the mother was changing the baby's diaper and briefly left the room. "

What mother leaves her baby alone in a room while changing a diaper? Was the child on the floor with the dog when this happened? Who else was in the house? No changing table?

Too many questions that are unanswered IMHO.

This is what I sent to info@Niagaraspca.org -- unfortunately short:

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: A thorough investigation should be done on the family
Date: Tue, 10 Jul 2007 21:02:06 -0400
To: info@Niagaraspca.org

Unfortunately I find it hard to believe that a dog would know what to do with a child in a sexual manner.

It appears like some excellent training from the owners of the animal. A dog may latch onto your leg and hump it, but sodomizing a baby? LUDICROUS.

This sounds like a sexual fantasy by the parents went awry.

Questions to ask the owners:
Did the Pit Bull turn the child over to abuse it?
Did the Pit Bull take out any sexual behavior on any other female dog?
Any pictures or videos found in the home that are questionable?
Any internet usage or questionable charges on credit cards to show the parents have sick sexual fantasies?

This is NOT the first time parents sexually abuse a child -- see this article:
http://www.registercitizen.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=18567591&BRD=1652&PAG=461&dept_id=12530&rfi=6

BANTAM - More arrests are expected for the sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl by a grandfather, uncle, father and apparently a brother in what police said was a familial relationship of chronic abuse that included three generations and may have also included two more victims.

If the parents are not investigated, the justice system has failed the children of Western New York and the United States.

Thank you.
Sincerely,

There exists no documentation substantiating rape for a non-human on a human. There does exist, however, rape of non-humans by humans.

While animals such as dogs, horses, and hippos will mount one another to show dominance, there has never been evidence to show that the mounting animal penetrated the mounted animal.

I find the accusation that a dog committed a rape against a human absolutely ridiculous, and a sad attempt to divert attention away from the real aggressors, namely other humans. In all likelilhood, the child's rapist is a member of his family, or is a known acquiantance of the family.

But who will likely be made to suffer for this? An animal. An animal who cannot speak in human language in order to defend himself from the most wildly insane of accusations. I have heard much nonsense during the time when I served as a probation officer, but this is the wildest lie I've yet heard.

This is truly BIZARE!! I agree, an investigation must be conducted. That was my first reaction when I saw it on TV earlier. To think of the poor boy in the hospital and seeing the shaking dog with his very sad face.

Thanks Christine for taking the initiative and getting all the contact info. We should all send emails.

This is an incredibly strange story. They want to destroy the dog, but it did not know it was doing anything wrong. Is the dog fixed? That may be a simple solution to the problem.

I hope the little boy will be okay.

Yes it is so easy for someone to put the blame on an animal who can't speak for itself, but there surely was a way of testing the semen, to see the DNA, and if it was human or animal. Remember this small child was raped and so there has to be some evidence.

Just reading the first part of the description of the "rape' ... "Eggert told us the boy's family members and neighbors had to beat the dog to get it off the child." ... when a dog enters a bitch they are tied. This can be anywhere from 2-3 minutes to over an hour ... been there, done that ... but yet they say they beat the dog to get it off. This is not a possibility. No amount of beating would enable the dog to remove its' penis from the child once it was in, until the gland reduced. There is nothing we can do to stop it. When I was growing up, people used to say that a bucket of cold water would work. Well, it may have worked for their husband, but it won't work for dogs. As for "the smell of the diaper" ... don't believe any dog would be sexually aroused by the smell of faeces. The second article mentions that they were both attached when the dog ran outside. Conflicting to start with. One of 2 scenarios. 1) The dog was trained to "mate" with humans or 2) was it really the dog/

I wonder if the dog was anywhere near the child or if it is just a convenient scapegoat for a relative who lost control. Family dogs don't rape babies - not even pitbulls!

I am completely blown away by this and at the same time, sadly not surprised that someone has come up with such a horrible scheme. Dogs act on instinct and what is taught to them! It is not there instinct to mate with something outside it's species. I am so disgusted and very afraid to find out what actually happened to this innocent little child. I can't imagine what horrific things this little boy has gone through. And to blame it on a dog that can do nothing to save it's own life....unbelievable.

Warning Signs May Have Been Missed
July 11, 2007 12:36 PM EDT

(July 11, 2007) - - A two year old Lockport boy is hospitalized after he was allegedly sodomized by the family pit bull in his home on Sunday.

The president of the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society says the dog's owners may have missed some warning signs.

She says at two years old, the dog is reaching sexual maturity and should be watched closely and never left alone with a child.

NO way NO how........would not happen, could not happen, not probable, that this or any dog could or would do this...NO NO NO
The parents or someone in the home in human form..YES
of course they keep saying they want the dog killed to keep attention off of them...how sick and if this is true I hope no one is hurting the dog where he is GOD forbid should humans be a little smarter and figure out a HUGE lie when they hear it......this dog did nothing of the sort and it is the humans who need to be locked up!

Update on this plus interview with a so=called witness:

http://www.wkbw.com/news/local/8441602.html

A Lockport toddler continues to recover from injuries suffered in an unusual sexual attack by the family's dog. The man who rescued the boy tells an incredible story of what he saw. The details of what he says happened are troubling.

What happened in this apartment house on Washburn Street in Lockport on Sunday is something Anastasio Castillo will never forget. "It's hard to believe.. Hard.. You had to be there to see. because it was nasty and ugly." He was walking home from the store when he heard a woman inside screaming for help. He says he ran inside and saw this pit bull sodomizing a two year old boy. "The dog had the baby by the front leg. And the baby's stomach....then I had to beat up on the dog to take him away from the baby."

He says the dog ran outside...and as Castillo picked up the boy, he was bleeding from the rectum and then vomited. Castillo is having trouble sleeping now. He can't understand how it could've happened. It is extremely rare for something like this to happen. Most cases involve owners forcing the behavior on animals.

Police say witnesses are cooperating with the investigation. "There's still interviews taking place and there's consultations with some experts," said Police Chief Neil Merritt. One of the experts that police have turned to is an animal behaviorist. Because investigators have never dealt with a case like this before they need some help in trying to figure out why the dog would've done this. "Just to see if there's any instances that have been reported similar instances of this."

The pit bull remains at the Niagara County SPCA. The family apparently wants it euthanized but that won't happen until the investigation is finished. The family does not want any information released on the boy's condition. At last word, he underwent surgery at Women and Children's hospital and may have need more surgery to repair the damage.

I used to live in Lockport, and now I live in Shelby.`My husband heard this on the local news and stated that he could not get that terrified dogs image out of his mind. The first thought I had was sex pervert.No way could this accidently happen. Who was watching this child? There is something very wrong with this situation, I raised three kids and always had dogs. The worst thing that ever happened was when the little girls screamed[like little girls will] the poor dog did not know who to protect. Thank you Christina for putting pressure on the police, and I intend to join this battle. I am Juanita and I am your neighbor in Orleans county.

This is nonsense... I hope that you have a thorough investigation done on the FAMILY, I honestly believe that this dog did not do such a thing... a dog doesnt know how to do things that it is not trained to do... IF this happened then someone in the FAMILY must have done it to the boy first, while the dog was watching, then the PERSON must have placed the dog in the same position and "helped"

Im shocked that the media thinks this really happened!!!!

This pitbull thing has gotten way out of hand... PUNISH THE DEED NOT THE BREED!!!!

BAN STUPID PEOPLE NOT DOGS!!!!!

Wow, I don't know about this, I have heard about dogs "humping" legs before but this is tough to believe. I'm a cat person so don't know that terribly much about the intrinsic nature of dogs, but even to this observer it doesn't seem reasonable. Along with others, I would like to see what the investigation reveals. Strange things go on within families, nothing would surprise me.
 

Catherine Flessen (12)

Something in this whole story just don't add up. As several people had already expressed here, INVESTIGATE THE FAMILY!! There are two possibilities why this incident happened: (1) the dog had been trained to do it; and (2) someone in the family is trying to make a scapegoat out of the dog, knowing it won't be able to defend itself against the allegations. IMHO, option number 2 is more likely.
Anyway, I do hope the SPCA opts to rehabilitate the animal instead of euthanising it, as the family expressed.

I also live near Lockport and have been watching this story very closely. I am not as sure as a lot of you are that the dog didn't do it. But if he did, it was because of something thats gone on in his life!
The mother claims she was changing the diaper and left the boy for just the "proverbial" minute when she heard the baby screaming. Someone asked if the dog were altered, no, "Bear" isn't. The investigators are doing DNA to try and determine what really happened and I have to say that their sincere interest on Bear's behalf gives me some hope for the future.
The poor dog is scared to death. He is a beautiful animal and right now his entire body is shaking and his facial expression would break your heart. I am not forgeting about the boy in my heartbreak over Bear but he has plenty of people watching over him. Bear is terrified, quaking all over his body and alone in a cage with no understanding of why this is hapening to him. I cry everytime I see the news clip with that video as part of it. He just breaks my heart.
Even before the law prevented the taking of his life, Me Chille said he wouldn't do anything because without intervention of a third party, the owners have to make the request and at that point in time, they had just disowned Bear.
One question for whoever may want to take a shot, how in the hell does this strange man run into a house and up to a "viscious" pit bull and start to "beat him up" and not have a mark on his body from a bite? Lets talk about how vicious Bear must be! It was my understanding from when I was young and told by my Mother that when dogs are mating is when I was to be most careful because they were more likely to bite at that time than any other. I still say that for all of their publicity about their viciousness, a hell of a lot of them are being severely injured by "little" big men who don't seem to have any trouble grabbing and hurting them. Not all of these terrible assaults are committed by the dog's owners!
 

Lee Hughes (10)
Thursday July 12, 2007, 5:53 am
Yeah, right. Chalk up another hoax. Come on, give me a break on this story. You expect me to believe this? Obviously this dog was not neutered. If the dog would have been neutered, this would have never happened! This is pit bull, so why wouldn't you want to neuter it unless you are staging illegal dog fights ....which means the parents are at fault. An unneutered male will hump anything including people's legs when they get an urge. It's natural, because they have to release the seamen build up just like human males. Another thing is that doesn't make sense is how could the dog's manhood go through a child's pants or diaper? That means the parents had the boy crawling around in front of the dog without any bottoms on. It also means that both the child and the boy were unsupervised in order for this whole feasco to take place in the first place! ......Also it said the neighbors and family tried to get the dog off the kid.....Hello, ever hear of throwing water on the dog? Also, if the dog's manhood actually got in, they have to wait until the dog is done and the "swelling" goes down. Stupid people who do not deserve the pleasure of owning a dog!!!!

Male dogs often 'hump' thingssuch as peoples legs,other animals,etc.Obviously the dog has jumped on the child and unfortunately penetrated him but this would have been unlikely to occur in a matter of seconds,so just how long was the mother gone for? This is quite normal behaviour for a male dog and does not make it vicious or anything else.The owners/parents of the child are at fault and should be charged with negligence and have the dog and possibly also the child removed from their care.

This is so fake! A dog molesting a child? When will people wake up and realize there are perverts out there and will say anything to cover their own disgusting actions. I am offended by this claim. I own Pit Bulls and know this family is lying through their teeth. I hope when the law finds out the dog is innocent they fry the mother and father! BTW, has anyone else thought that the animals DNA could have been planted in the baby? Good grief!

Why is it that in one article it says this man ran into the house from the street to beat the dog off the child and in another, it says the dog dragged the boy outside while still attached to the kid??

I'm definitely leaning towards the family having something to do with this...either deliberately or through negligence. I just hope they get convinced to just give the dog away. He isn't vicious, obviously, and even if guilty of actually doing this, had no intent to harm the child. Neuter him and give him to a loving home with more responsible owners.

A comment from someone today who watched the Five O'Clock news:

"the 5 o clock news says the child is goning to be in the hospital for weeks. The dog is still alive. The owners want him put down but, untill the investagation is over they will not do that. Also many people calling the spca in hopes of saving and adopting the dog. The dog is showing no signs of agression and really does not bark."

Thank you to everyone who has wrote, emailed and called the various divisions in Western NY about this case!

I agree with the people on this forum. I do not live in NY, I only know if this story from the internet, as it is not on the news here, not sure why Fox or CNN is not covering the story. But, I absolutly think the parents have a hand in this. And I think the point that Aggie made is so fantastic and on target. How did this neighbor not get bitten or even scratched by the dog when he was pulling to dog off of the boy?

This is just terrible and I feel for both the boy and the dog . They are both victims. Christine, please keep up with your updates as I can not get news on this from my local sources. Or Fox or CNN

Weird story.When a dog mounts on people(and often on dogs as well)it means he wants to dominate.It's a natural behaviour,nothing strange about that. NEVER heard of a dog raping a child. Often saw /see people not understanding one little bit of what it means keeping a dog. Rule number one:never leave a small child alone with a dog.I'm afraid there is something else,very vicious going on,and the dog has got nothing to do with that.

Lets just be thankful that the "big networks" didn' t pick up on this! This is one breed that does not need anymore bad publicity to bring out the real animals! I still hold the "press" responsible for most of the pit's problems! I love dogs and have been a big fan of "The Dog Whisperer's" since I first saw him a few years ago. Any of you who know his show, and his dogs, know that he has a bunch of pit bulls and I still couldn't pick the real pit bull in the photo thing! It has gotten to the point where any four legged, tallish, brown or grey or black dog with a big head and teeth is called a pit bull if it does anything wrong. MEDIA BLITZ TO DESTROY A BREED! { Makes me wonder if Bu$h hates them, the heat has definitely been increasing over the last 5 years! } Just a little lightness for the moment!

LOCKPORT: Dog attack probe continues
By April Amadon/amadona@gnnewspaper.com
The Tonawanda News

The investigation continues into Sunday’s bizarre dog attack involving a pit bull and a 2-year-old boy.

Lockport Police Detective Capt. Larry Eggert said they are interviewing more witnesses in the case and meeting with dog behavioral experts to try and figure out what motivated the dog to sexually assault a young boy.

The incident occurred around 2 p.m. in a Washburn Street apartment. The dog, a 2-year-old pit bull named Bear, reportedly sodomized the boy during the attack.

Eggert said the boy’s mother was in another room when the incident occurred.

“She left the baby alone for a short period of time,” he said. “She heard a scream, she ran in the room and saw the dog and the boy.”

The woman began yelling at the dog, which spooked it, causing it to run outside, still attached to the boy, Eggert said.

The dog dragged the boy out onto the porch, where neighbors saw what was happening, he said.

“They heard the mother screaming,” Eggert said. “Together they were able to disentangle the dog and the boy.”

The toddler was taken to Women’s and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, where he remains after having surgery Sunday night. Eggert said he may need further reconstructive surgery in the future.

Niagara County SPCA Executive Director Al Chille said the dog was still being held at the facility on Tuesday and will remain there pending the police investigation.

The pit bull had been with the family for two years and had no history of aggression, Eggert said.

A DNA sample was taken from the dog to compare with DNA taken from the boy to ensure the attack actually did take place, he said.

Eggert said investigators plan to sit down with the Niagara County District Attorney’s office to determine if any charges will be filed.

“It’s not a pleasant case to have to work with,” Eggert said. “It’s almost unbelievable.”

http://www.buffalonews.com/cityregion/niagaracounty/story/117269.html?imw=Y

Lockport boy improving after pit bull attack

Updated: 07/11/07 7:06 AM

LOCKPORT — A 2-year-old Washburn Street boy mauled by a family pit bull Sunday afternoon remained in serious “but improving” condition Tuesday in Women and Children’s Hospital, Buffalo, city police said.

The mother told police that, as she was changing her son’s diaper, she sent him to the living room to get a new one. The child was alone for “only a minute,” she said, when the attack occurred. She ran to get him when she heard him scream, said Capt. Lawrence Eggert, Lockport chief of detectives.

Eggert said family members told him the 2-year-old pit bull had been a family pet since it was a puppy, and they had no previous problems with aggressiveness.

The dog was taken to the Niagara County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, where it was expected to be euthanized.

This is so rediculous. How stupid can people get? There's no way that dog would have been sexually aroused, save if an intact female dog was near. I agree with the questions asked above:

1. Was the child on the floor?
2. What mother walks away for that long while changing her child's diaper? (Something that takes but a few moments. )
3. Couldn't the DNA show somthing?

I agree with you all in that there is definately something not being said. I too believe it was an act from another human in the household. And for one thing, if you think about it, a dog wouldn't necessarily cause the child to bleed. Something like an adult human male would.

I have to comment on this. I've been reading your posts and yes it is simply bizarre, to say the least, to imagine that a dog could mount and penetrate a naked two year old boy. However, to sum it up as simply as possible, that dog has been "trained" to do such acts. There is a very sick thing called beastiality where sex acts are performed between animals and humans. Disgusting and very distrubing but it does exist. So if this dog has the "instinct" to penetrate a human being, it is because he has done it before. A very thorough investigation needs to be done on the mother of this child. I hope and pray that this child gets the medical attention I'm certain that he needs and receives counseling afterwards.... this is going to mess him up for some time.

THAT DOG DOSENT DESERVE TO DIE!!!! He is an animal, NOT a RAPIST!!! When a human does what this dog is being accused of....they dont kill the human because the family wants that person killed. Poor dog.

My money is on the alleged rescuer with mom as co-conspirator. Or a physical assault only with witnesses too excited, upset, or stupid to know what they saw.

How can you even think for a second that the poor dog should be euthanized?!?!

The news crews lie about everything, they exaggerate the truth and turn it into something terrible. How can you sit there and say that a dog, a dog for crying out loud, would rape a human? That is so outrageous.

A dog just doesn't get aroused for nothing. He just doesn't get aroused because he "feels like it". A human wouldn't be able to arouse a dog anyways. Humping in dogs is sometimes a show of dominance, but during that they are never aroused. Even if it was a show of dominance, it would still never be able to penetrate.

All the behaviorists they have called have said that the dog was probably taught to do that. Obviously by a human and so the human should be punished, not the dog.

I just cannot believe that anyone would even believe that for a second. There are so many holes and questions in this story it's not even funny. Hopefully the DNA results will come back soon, to show the real story.

I believe the parents is covering someone who really molested the child. If the dog shows no aggressive, than it's most likely, the parents is afraid of someone and decided to blame the dog for it. They need to do a DEEP investigation before euthanzing the poor dog til proven guilty.

THE MOTHER RELOCATED!!!!!!!

Pit Bull “Molested And Attacked” Toddler?

by Adam Klasfeld 07/13/2007

Press reported the “bizarre and disturbing” story of a pit bull raping a two-year-old. StinkyJournalism.org finds two misquoted experts crying foul, hospital saying child protection agency is involved, SPCA President revealing that mother has “relocated” and giving StinkyJournalism advance notice of results of dog's official behavioral analysis.

The voice on Buffalo, New York's WBEN news radio broadcast promised “bizarre and disturbing” news about “an attack on a small boy by a pit bull.” That wasn’t the unusual part. Scare stories about canine attacks populate news coverage almost as regularly as weather forecasts. What made this one so strange was the mother’s claim that the dog allegedly anally raped her two-year-old son. The toddler has had reconstructive surgery, and is in Buffalo's Women's & Children's Hospital. The dog is locked up in the Niagara County SPCA, and the mother’s demanding that it be euthanized as soon as possible.

In an interview with Detective Larry Eggert of the Lockport Police Department, the WBEN news anchors strained to treat the matter with a sense of propriety. “This is a very delicate question,” the anchorman said. “I’ll try to approach it as sensitively as I can, but did you check with a veterinarian? Are animals ever sexually attracted to human beings?” The detective answered that the department had to search outside New York State to find an animal behaviorist who apparently investigated “five” such cases.

Strangely, the anchors did not reveal what that expert discovered, or ask about the credentials of the person.

Even if all five of those cases turned out to be actual rapes of small children by dogs, and there’s no evidence that is the case, the outlets presented the story as true without any skepticism.

Only one local paper vowed to dig deeper. The expert evaluation of the dog's behavior was going to be released on Saturday, June 14 in the The Lockport Union-Sun & Journal, but StinkyJournalism already discovered the results during a conversation with Niagara County SPCA's executive director. "They can't believe that it actually occured," says Al Chille.

“This Story Does Not Add Up.”

A WIVB news report claimed that the President of the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society corroborated the story. According to this article, the unnamed expert stated that the parents may have missed warning signs, and that a two-year-old dog reaching “sexual maturity” should not be left alone with a small child.

Her words, however, were taken completely out of context. She explained that a two-year-old dog can display aggression when reach sexual maturity. “Aggression,” she said, means “biting, not raping.” She never intended to suggest that parents need to fear potential rape by their family pet.

“Just coming from the standpoint of having worked with dogs that are breeding, [getting young dogs to mate] is not an easy thing,” said a frustrated Stephanie Wolf, the misrepresented leader of NFVS. “For a dog to have done this in a fraction of a moment, sounds to me a little strange. This story does not add up.”

There goes one expert. WIVB also made it appear that Al Chille, the executive director of the Niagara County SPCA, verified the credibility of the story, when in fact he contradicted it. In a news story titled “Bizarre and Disturbing Dog Attack,” they quoted him as saying, “My understanding is the child had no bites on him at all. … I guess the message is be respectful of a dog, until you absolutely know the animal” (ellipsis in original).

One wonders what part of the interview was stricken out in place of the ellipsis. When I contacted Chille for further comment, he noted that the lack of bitemarks on the boy was a reason to disbelieve the mother’s story. “Not to get crude about it,” he says by way of disclaimer before explaining to me a male dog attaches his claws to the sides of the female dog while mating. “It just seems to me that there would be something on the child.”

StinkyJournalism.org called WIVB for comment, but the news director has not yet replied.

“Now She Has Relocated”

Had the anchor been a little more inquisitive, he could have found out other information indicating that it was not a dog endangering the child. While Chille mentioned that it was not his role to speculate to the press, he had plenty to say about to say to us about his skepticism.

For example, Chille said that he has never heard of a dog raping a child in 27 years of his working with the SPCA, and neither did any of his colleagues. In addition, he sounded disturbed by how adamant the mother was about wanting the dog (“Bear”) put down before the investigation was over.

He assured me he would not let that happen so long as he’s guarding the pooch. Last night, he received 30 emails, “most of them saying they want to adopt it, none of whom blamed the dog and felt sorry for the boy. … I am toying with the idea of going to a rescue group with it.”

Moreover, he revealed, “Now, [the mother] has relocated. One of the agents went to her house, and the door was shut. The neighbors said she will not be coming back.” Her flight is not proof of culpability or even accessory, but it did raise Chille’s eyebrows.

Niagara County’s District Attorney Matthew J. Murphy III refused to confirm this information, as it was “an ongoing investigation.” When we asked if child protective services were involved, he repeated the answer and hung up the phone.

An Alternative Hypothesis

The dog seems to be in safe hands now. What about the boy?

The Women’s & Children’s Hospital has been told by the mother not to release information about the medical condition of the child. However, we asked the public information spokesman John Moscato if the hospital was shielding him, and if they reported suspected abuse to child protective services.

“Child protective services and all of the appropriate authorities have been notified in this case,” he stated. It’s difficult to believe that they would be taking such measures if they were certain that the jailed dog was the culprit.

Surprisingly, no press reports that we can find have investigated alternative scenarios with human perpetrators. Were “bizarre and disturbing” headlines more appealing?

Assuming the mother’s story is wrong, and it’s less credible by the moment, there is a more obvious hypothesis. This was a human crime.

Out of a misplaced sense of propriety, or a cynical sense of lurid sensationalism, evidence indicates the press has lent credibility to the preposterous alibi of a child rapist, leaving a two-year-old in continued danger of molestation while sending an innocent pit bull to be put to sleep.

Fortunately, the director of the Niagara County SPCA and the Women & Children's Hospital are not just going with the assumption that the dog did it.

Mother relocated? see now something is real fishy now. Mother's being guilty? CPS involve? So looks like the poor pitbull is innocent after all. I agreed with Chille, this definately a eye brow raising question about this. But I do hope the child recovers well, and if it comes out true that's the mother is involve, I hope they will place the child in better hands.

Princess Y. I am for your reply but also against it in a way. I'm sure many others may think the same thing as I:

1.] Should it have been a "closed door" case, there wouldn't have been so many questions brought up and look at all the people who would adopt that poor dog.

2.] I agree though that the child is going to have a completely different life now, whether it's true or not. I know what it's like to be the outcast over stupid reasons and he is going to feel so bad when he's older. No friends. Loner lunches. Poor kid.

Other acquaintances of mine have said that cases of child molestation have been video taped and sold via internet. Perhaps, they were doing this and someone found out and threatened to blackmail them, so they blame the damage on the dog.

Other questions were, a two-year-old child isn't going to be easily dragged by a 45-60 pound pit bull like that. Even if he was dragged, he would have carpet burn or cuts/bruises on him! Right?

The neighbors say that they witnessed the dog going outside. How does the dog even get out side? Did she let it outside? It sure as heck wouldn't fit through a dog door with a child attached to it. Was the door open already? (What mother leaves an unattended child in a house with a door wide open.)

I've heard some people say it's more likely the dog never went outside. But that doesn't explain the neighboring comments in news reports. Or does it? Could it be that the supposed "neighbor" was also a molestor of the child? Could he/she be in on covering up the real story as well?

So many questions to answer...poor dog. Makes me so sad.

To the folks calling for the dog to be killed. Why? It has not been proven that the dog is guilty. There are so many conflicting stories from the mom. This animal would have had to be taught this act. Seems someone in the family has been playing house with the dog. The dog does not deserve to die, he is innocent. Whats wrong with people today? Just because it's a Pit Bull they scream "Kill the dog!" B.S.

Okay, maybe I'm not nutz! Kristine, do you always watch 4 or did you catch this on 7 at all when it first happened? I swear that the photo above was not the same dog that I kept seeing on 7! The photo on this page looks exactly like the pits the dog whisperer has! That face, to me, IS a pit bull! The one on WKBW that was so upsetting looked to be two tone, like a black over white or brown. KB's dog in the cell looked more like the big bull dog to me. I even asked my friend and she agreed that the dog from 7 didn't look at all like the one on this page. Maybe the real dog didn't look enough like the "pit bull" to make the story more frightening and damning! I am going to try and do some checking and I'll be back if I find anything out!

Princess Y: I understand where you are coming from. I agree partailly that this should have been private. I agree that the child will have a messed up life. But on the other hand, maybe this will help make responsible parents. If they see what happens to kids with dogs (even if it's fake) they are more likely to take action and be more responsible for their children and pets.

I don't mean to start any arguments over this. I like viewing things from both the good and bad sides. ('Twas only a post to show the pro's and con's of the good and bad.) I hope I didn't seem offensive.

Check this out. A human raped a 12 year old the same way as what must have happened to the two year old. I will confirm it but I belive the girl blamed the dog at first too.

Fri, November 4, 2005, in the Toronto Sun, By MARK BONOKOSKI

"Back in August, a now-17-year-old Scarborough girl -- her name protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act -- was sentenced by Justice Paul Robertson to 20 months probation after pleading guilty to the Criminal Code offence of "compelling bestiality" -- as in using a neighbour's pit bull as a sexual weapon in the anal rape of a then-12-year-old boy...

"We need to get rid of his horniness," the girl reportedly said, and then instructed the boy to get down on the floor on his hands and knees where she then forcibly pulled down his pants and underwear, and put the pit bull in position.

"The boy told her to stop -- that it was "no longer funny."

"But it wasn't about to stop.

"The victim began crying in pain," reads the police report. "After about 10-15 seconds of the dog penetrating the victim, the accused began hitting the dog on the head to break him off. The accused instructed the victim not to tell.

"Back at his own apartment, the boy initially told his mother that his "puffy" face -- swollen from crying -- was the result of banging his head on a shelf. After he went to the bathroom and discovered he was bleeding, however, he let the entire story spill out, including showing her the scratches on his back that were consistent with claw marks."

THERE ARE NO MARKS OF ANY KIND ON THE TWO YEAR OLD BOY--NO SCRATCHES, NO CLAW MARKS.

DOG ATTACK: SPCA gets adoption requests for pit bull
By April Amadon/amadona@gnnewspaper.com

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal

The pit bull involved in last week’s attack on a Washburn Street toddler remains at the Niagara County SPCA, and several people have expressed interest in adopting the dog.

Al Chille, executive director if the Niagara County SPCA, said he’s received calls from all over the country about the dog, a 2-year-old pit bull named Bear.

“We’ve got so many requests,” Chille said. “People wanting to adopt, lots of those. People rendering their opinion with regard to the case.”

He said he believes the dog, which has been quiet and well-behaved since arriving at the SPCA, could be successfully adopted.

“We’re going to do everything we can to adopt out the animal into a good home with no children,” he said. “I’m not speculating on what occurred, but there are lots of homes with people who would like (to adopt it). ...It’s a sad situation all around.”

Meanwhile police are still investigating the July 8 attack. The dog allegedly pinned the 2-year-old boy down and sodomized him, causing serious injuries.

Lockport Police Detective Capt. Larry Eggert said the toddler had just removed his own dirty diaper and asked his mother for a new one. She sent him into the living room to get a new diaper and heard him scream a short time later, Eggert said.

The mother went into the living room and reportedly saw the dog had mounted the boy. The woman yelled, which spooked the dog, sending it running out the door and onto the porch, still attached to the boy, Eggert said.

Neighbors reportedly saw what was happening and helped the mother beat the dog to get it away from the boy.

Since the attack, the boy has been at Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, where he underwent surgery and is still recovering. Eggert said he may need reconstructive surgery in the future.

The pit bull was impounded at the Niagara County SPCA, where Chille said it will remain until the police investigation is finished.

DNA samples were taken from the dog to compare with DNA samples found on the boy. Eggert said the DNA will verify that the attack in fact took place.

Police are working with the Niagara County District Attorney’s office to determine if any charges will be filed against anyone in the child’s home, but nothing has been determined.

On Thursday night, the dog was transported to the Erie County SPCA, where it was evaluated by behavioral experts in an effort to find out what triggered the attack. The dog stayed there overnight and was transported back to Niagara County SPCA on Friday.

The fate of the dog is unclear. The child’s family has expressed a wish to have it put down, Chille said.

Pit Bull "Rapist" Safe For Now

by Adam Klasfeld 07/18/2007

After a two-year-old boy from Lockport, New York was allegedly sodomized by a family pet, a pit bull named "Bear," people across the nation responded with a wellspring of sympathy and support for the child and the dog, who is currently in the custody of the Niagara Country SPCA. Conversations on Internet message boards showed overwhelming disbelief that the dog acted alone, and citizens were concerned that it would unfairly euthanized for the act. They would be relieved to know that SPCA's executive director Al Chille will not let that happen.

He had a lot to say about the case, and we at Art Science Research Laboratory decided to meet the public's concern by reproducing the full text of our interview below:

INT: I’m calling about the case of the two-year-old boy.
R: May I ask you how you found out? The reason I ask is the fact that this was on local TV and I yesterday had a call from a Gulfport, Louisiana talk show, wanted to interview me on the talk show. It was on TV last night and I had probably 30 emails immediately afterward most of which wanted—most of whom wanted to adopt it. None of whom blamed the dog and felt sorry for the boy but blamed the parents and the household and the environment and all the other causes. And one call was from Wisconsin, one call was from Alabama I think and—

INT: Oh my God.
R: Yeah and it just amazed me how the word is out all over the—seems like all over the country.

INT: Yeah, well that’s the thing about the Internet. Local news reports it and every dog lover latched on to it. The news doesn’t have a location on the Internet, and it’s a pretty unusual story. The director of Art Science Research Lab actually alerted me to it. Word spreads quickly. So all over the country, you’ve been getting calls and all sympathetic to the dog?
R: Basically — let me just say this — I am against euthanizing the animal. I don’t know how you feel about it, but I’m sure I’ll find out in a moment. But there is still an ongoing investigation by the police department. I am holding the animal. I understand from the police department that the woman wanted—wants the animal destroyed and she was kind of in a hurry for it. And to me, I don’t like the sound of that, and I have had a lot of offers of people who would adopt the animal. In the back of my mind, I’m toying with going to a rescue group with it. As opposed to keeping it in the general area here where it has quote "a reputation," unquote. Even though it’s probably an unearned reputation, but nevertheless it has a reputation. Also, I don’t subscribe to the attitude of a lot of people that all pit bulls are bad. I mean I can’t buy that. You got any dog, any dog that is raised in a loving environment can be a good dog, and I’ve been here 27 years and dogs, they’ve all had their day. The Doby’s had his day, that he was a dangerous and terrible dog and the Shepherd’s had its day and the Rottweiler’s had its day and so now it’s the pit bull. I think ultimately people will get to know the pit bull as a dog and not as a menace.

INT: My brother has a pit bull. One pit bull and a Doberman/Rottweiler mix. So I know that that pit bull is far from menacing.
R: Well, you haven’t had an opportunity to see it, but the pit bull, we did a DNA [test] on it, we took the body fluids for a DNA, and when we took the body fluids, we put a muzzle on it. But it didn’t struggle at all and the needle was put in, drove into the wrist of the dog and took maybe two or three vials of blood out and then the needle slipped. So it had to be re-inserted... and he still didn’t struggle and then took the substance from the penis, and inserted a swab in the penis. Which you and I know that would be uncomfortable.

INT: Yeah of course.
R: And he didn’t struggle at all, he’s just more frightened than anything else, and he apparently, I would say, if the whole story that the owner tells is true, then he did what dogs do. He just picked the wrong subject. You know what I’m saying? I’m not minimizing what happened, but if it in fact happened as it is described to us, then he just did what dogs do. And a dog a couple of years old is going into sexual maturity, so something would have attracted him to it.

INT: Have you ever heard of anything like this happening before?
R: Never with a child. In 27 years, I’ve heard, we’ve had reports of adults and dogs having sexual encounters, particularly females. Male, female but the situation is not—I’ve never, never heard that and I’ve never heard of a dog even being attracted. If it was an older dog, it could be a—it would be a taught thing I would think. The first question the police asked me was, “Do you think it’s physically possible?” And anything’s possible. Highly improbable from my point of view but anything’s possible, without some assistance.

INT: You said that the media has contacted you as far as Louisiana. Did any of the local reporters who are covering this story?
R: Oh dozens of them, two, four, seven, our three channels from Buffalo. The four newspapers, five newspapers from the area. I’ve been on the TV probably two or three times in each channel.

INT: Well, it sounds like you’re saying that this story sounds suspicious. I definitely agree with that. From the local coverage that I’ve read, no one has even brought up the suspicion. Has anyone quoted you?
R: The only response I’ve given to the inquiry was the police are doing an in depth investigation and I’m not going to speculate on what their investigation is. I did indicate that probably 90 to 95% of the emails that I’m getting are [from people who] want to adopt the animal. I’ll quote you one. One said, “Punish the deed, not the breed.”

INT: Do you know when the DNA results are—
R: No I don’t. All I know is we’re asked to produce the fluids, and we did the first day that we had the dog. And the police department came in, picked them up, and took them to the crime lab.

INT: You told me that you’ve never heard of this happening in 27 years.
R: No.

INT: Have any of your colleagues or anyone who you’ve contacted?
R: The dog presently is in Buffalo for 24 hours for a behavioral [examination], and the folks that I’ve talked to can’t believe that it actually occurred. But the lady, the mother, says that she witnessed the dog running with the child attached, and she screamed, the child screamed, the dog ran outside, and a neighbor helped her dislodge the dog, and in doing so, they damaged the child significantly. He’s had surgery and will have to have, I guess, reconstructive surgery at a later date.

INT: Oh that’s terrible.
R: I shouldn’t say this, but my speculation is maybe someone else did this and they blamed it on the dog.

INT: Yeah, that seems to be the possibility that the media is not mentioning.
R: I think the police are aware of that.

INT: Well, maybe they’re playing it safe, or they just are latching onto the more bizarre, sensational story.
R: Well that’s right. It really is. It’s grabbed everybody’s interest or curiosity. I know there is no man living in the house. Now, whether she has a boyfriend or not, I don’t know. But there are a total of five kids. I don’t know whether any of the kids are, for example, teenagers, male teenagers or something like that. I have no clue. But I’m sure that the police are aware of that fact. The other thing is, not to be crude, but when two dogs go at it, the male dog holds on to the female with his claws on the sides. This child has no marks on the child at all. No bites, no marks, no scratches, no bruises, and it just seems to me that there would be something. But again, I avoid speculating to the press because it’s really not my place to.

INT: I completely understand. There has been speculation in Internet forums and things like that. Are you aware of the organization, SnowballsChance.org?
R: No.

INT: It’s a New Orleans organization that wants to reunite Katrina survivors with their dogs. So they’re all dog lovers, and they have had a running conversation for some time. They pointed that out too. That might be where you’re getting a lot of your calls.
R: Yeah, well I wouldn’t be in this business if I didn't love animals. I mean I’ve got six, almost seven years of college, and I’m a retired school administrator and I came here, told them I’ve give them five years of my life and this is my 27th year. I’m here because I love animals and, if I have it within my power, I have no intention of letting this dog be euthanized for something that may or may not have happened. And if it did in fact happen, it’s more of an innocence thing than it is—I mean doing what the dogs do and it’s unfortunate that if it did in fact occur. But the bottom line is that most people want to adopt it. The lady said she wants it put down but thus far I have avoided her simply saying that there’s an investigation going on. And now she has re-located I understand. So long as she has re-located, I can’t reach her [laughs].

INT: Oh wow, re-located, did she give a reason?
R: No. They said that one of the agents went to her house, and the door was shut, and the neighbors said she will not be coming back.

INT: Oh my God!
R: So I don’t know what the circumstances are there. But the police are aware of this so—

INT: Huh, and you’ve expressed your skepticism to the police right?
R: Yes, I have yeah.

INT: Okay, and as far as you’re aware, they are investigating all options?
R: Yes, they said they were.

INT: Okay, well—
R: So it’s ongoing. As far as I’m concerned, I have the dog in possession. Get it from me... or try to.

INT: Well thank you so much for speaking to me and we’re trying to get to the bottom of it because as soon as—it’s—actually the director of Art Science Research Lab has a pit bull and as soon as she read this story, she said this is preposterous. It’s—anyone who has tried to breed dogs knows that it doesn’t happen quite so easily.
R: Tell her that it’s not—there’s no way it’s going to be put down as far as I’m concerned personally.

We will continue to try to report the latest on this terrible story...

response to Deb Bachand, The dog is key evidence in this case. If the dog did not do this "rape" as experts suggest, then a human criminal(s) are running around free to hurt more children. It is also unjust to kill an innocent creature for a human crime. These I believe are peoples concerns. The child will be protected ONLY IF AND WHEN the truth about the dog is determined.

Deb I would adopt the dog in a heartbeat.

The mother is a liar and caused this harm to the boy, not the dog.
Why did mama move out of the house after this happened? Why did she want the dog destroyed before the investigation was completed? Why did the dog show NO SIGNS of being aggressive while having his DNA taken?

Why, because the mother LIED to protect herself instead of her child.

LOCKPORT: Pit bull investigation ongoing
By April Amadon/amadona@gnnewspaper.com
Lockport Union-Sun & Journal

Police say that the results of a DNA test on a Washburn Street boy who was apparently attacked by the family pit bull are in and the dog’s traces were the only ones found.

No charges have been filed in the bizarre incident where police believe the dog sexually assaulted a small child. The dog remains at the SPCA of Niagara County.

“We’re still plodding through it,” Lockport Police Detective Capt. Larry Eggert said.

Eggert said nothing incriminating was found in the results of DNA tests that were taken from the dog and from the boy.

“If it says dog DNA for both parties, it’s dog DNA, which is pretty much what we were expecting,” he said.

Women’s and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo will not release any information about the boy’s current condition or if he is still a patient there. He underwent surgery there when he was admitted on July 8, the day of the attack.

The boy’s mother told police he had just removed his own dirty diaper and asked her to change him. She said he went into the living room to get a clean diaper and was alone with the dog, a 2-year-old pit bull named Bear, for a matter of minutes when the attack occurred.

The mother heard the boy scream and walked in to see the dog sodomizing him, police said.

Eggert said at the time the boy suffered “some pretty significant injuries” and was expected to undergo reconstructive surgery.

SPCA Director Al Chille said the dog will remain with his organization “until we find out that the Lockport police have completed their investigation.”

The dog had been with the family since it was a puppy and had no history of aggressive behavior, Eggert said.

Chille said he’s received calls from all over the country about Bear from people with all different opinions. Some have wanted the dog to be euthanized immediately, while others have requested to adopt him.

“It’s tapered down, but we still get an occasional (call),” Chille said.

The boy’s mother has contacted Chille, as well.

“She’s demanding that it be euthanized,” he said.

Investigators have been receiving many tips from the community, but much of the information has been based on rumors and speculation about the family involved, Eggert said.

“(There are) a lot of good-intentioned people, but a lot of people that are jumping on the bandwagon,” Eggert said.

He urged anyone with solid information about the case to call him at 439-6722.

They say the DNA is back and the only traces found were of the dog. I still say if the dog did this it was a learned thing. Dogs just don't do this sort of thing, its not in their nature. There is something very wrong here, and that whole family needs to be investigated, especially the mother.

Yes. This is possible. Dog anatomy is as such as their penis has a large "knot" at one end, which prevents the humpee from getting away. Pulling the dog off may have forcefully removed this knot. I doubt the dog was trained to do this. Im sure if you went into his doghouse, you wouldn't see an array of sex toys and newspaper clippings of his crimes.

Dog psychology and human psychology are vastly different. A non-castrated male dog, especially one of this breed, will attempt to hump anything. Stuffed animals, living animals(regardless of species or gender), and yes, even people. Working at a kennel, I have seen dogs try to mount people that were bent over doing something. I've seen the same breeds of untrained dogs out in the field, trying to mount hunters that were laying down in a hide. It is a natural behavior.

The dog may have perceived the child as showing submissive behavior. As someone who works with canines for a living, I seriously doubt this was the result of intentional training. Dogs like labradors, pitbulls, rotweilers, etc, are NOT the kind of dog to leave around your children. They generally have a short temper and a high sex drive.

Eat, kill, hump. At any given time, they are thinking one of those three things. Very primal and instinctive. Just be glad the dog only decided to do one of those to the kid.

It is not as ridiculous story as some say.
I grew up with dogs, and as a little boy, I remember seing plenty of dogs having sex ( stray dogs.) It was funny and the kids would follow and tunt the dogs while having sex.
I remember and I can tell dogs are very sexual animals, they have a high drive. A male dog is always horny, and domesticated dogs had lost the estrus cycle, a male domestic dog is on the permanent hunt for a female.
many dogs when growing up without other dogs relate their sexual urges to humans, that is why many dogs hump and mount humans. The animal is not perverted, he thinks he is human ( or he thinks we are dogs ) and he is trying to mount us. Any dog will try to mount another dog, only when another male growls at a dog he understands that is not a mountable dog.
Also I know that dogs when they mount, they instinctively ( unlike we humans, the girl guides the penis in her vagina, or the male does it ) poke for the hole, and when they feel the hole, they begin thrusting like a train gone mad ( have anybody seen dogs mating?, they thrust with no determination, untill they penetrate, then they thrust very fast and penetrate untill sexual tie, when the male penis swells and stays in the vagina for minutes eyaculating )... and that is the way dog sex happens, no slow romantic love, it is pure fast coitus and eyaculation.
A dog that is in a house with any naked human will smell our rear ends. If given the opportunity the male dog will investigate. If we are talking about a 2 year old child, this young dog ( 2 y/o) perhaps saw the boy on all fours playing, and the dog just approached him and mounted him.
A 2 year old is about the height of a small dog, so this Pit Bull was at normal height for dog mating, and he begun to thrust at the boys but. Under no supervision, the dog thrusted untill he felt the boys anus and what followed unfortunately is what a male dog does when mounted and touching a hole with his penis.
This is an awfull experience, this kid should had never been left alone, no kid, specially a naked toddler, with a male dog.
In a matter of seconds, a dog can thrust and penetrate a female to the point of swelling, and in 15 seconds this dog easily could had penetrated the kid, and subsequently swell inside of him to the point of knotting/tying with the unfortunate kid.
The boy perhaps could not get the dog of him at time when the dog first touched his anus with his penis, and from that second on, it took 15 seconds to knott. I can imagine the mother crying rape, because obviously you would see a kid knotted to a boy by the dogs' penis, so this did not look like a bloody bite attack, but a sexualy explicit attack.
I even remember my dog humping on peoples legs, and I thought it was funny, but think about it, a small child with no weight to overcome a heavy pitbull, at the right position on all fours while playing, and with no clothes nor adult presence, it can go from a day at the park to tragedy.

I just want to add that what Kody says is right, once the dog was inside the boy and swollen, the dog was tied to the child. Instead of pulling the dog of the child, the presence of paramedics should had been summoned immediately. paramedics could had given the dog a tranquilizer and he would had subsided, freeing the boy. By pulling the dog off the boy, major damage muct had occured at that moment.
For the record, this story made me want to get some facts, at You Tube you can see many funny ( funny untill something like this happens, but it is adults not toddlers ) videos were people laugh at dogs mounting humans.
An adult can stop the fun at any moment, but an unsuspecting toddler who thinks the dog is just playing, naked and in that position of playing on all fours, can get penetrated and all which was mentioned before.
The damage was done when the adults pulled the dog away from the child, like with any injury, the boy and the dog should had been kept in place untill paramedics arrived.

Unfortunately the facts are not all in this article.

It was found the mother has LIED on numerous occasions and then fled the house.

She is now charged on a DIFFERENT case with her kids for CHILD ENDANGERMENT.

The mother arrested over the weekend for living in a filthy apartment with her young children on Lincoln Place in Lockport, has a connection to a recent case of alleged child neglect. 29 year old Shauniqua Rodriguez was charged with endangering the welfare of a child in the recent case. Sources tell 7 NEWS this is the same mother who use to live at a house on Washburn Street and is part of an ongoing investigation of an incident that happened there about a year ago. Allegedly her little boy was sodomized by a pit bull. The mother was changing the young boy's diaper and briefly left the room, that's when the incident happened.

Lockport Police say DNA results show no human involvement in the sexual assault of a two year old boy July 8th.

Jessica Weinstein: "So this proves that it really can happen?"

Chief Neil Merritt, Lockport Police: "I don't think that there's any doubt because there's a number of witnesses, because this occurred inside, then the dog ran out onto the porch."

The mother told Lockport Police that she left her two year old unattended for a short time and after hearing the baby scream, she ran to see what was wrong.

When she got in the room, she told Lockport Police the dog, named "Bear", had sodomized the toddler. The mother screamed, scaring the dog out of the house, but the dog was still attached to the baby.

One neighbor told 2 On Your Side, she heard the mother screaming "The dog is raping my baby." Neighbors ran to help, but only one man was able to get the dog and child apart.

Anastacio Castillo says "I tried to get the dog away from the baby, the dog was already inside the baby." When the baby was finally free, he was visibly sick. Castillo says the boy was vomiting and bleeding.

The baby was rushed to Women and Children's Hospital where the toddler underwent reconstructive surgery. Hospital officials are no longer verifying that he is a patient there.

Lockport Police say they continue to investigate how a pitbull sodomized a toddler. They are looking into calls that the dog may have been trained, but they don't know by whom.

"Some experts are saying that it's not possible for a dog to do that without being trained, and then we have experts that say it's very possible, that it could happen, the dog just being exposed to the scent of a female dog in heat," said Merritt.

The pitbull has been evaluated. According to officials at the Niagara County SPCA, the dog spent 24 hours with an animal behaviorist. Results of the evaluation will be turned over to police.

Since the attack, over 20 people have called the SPCA asking to adopt the pitbull. Chief Merritt says it'll likely be up to a judge to decide what happens to the dog after the investigation is complete.

"I know a court can order a dog destroyed if it's a danger to the public or it's exhibited harmful behavior," he said.

The Niagara County District Attorney's office is assisting Lockport Police with the investigation.

Miranda Workman, behavior specialist at Purrfect Paws in Amherst says, "Most likely this is not a learned behavior. Dogs in tact, not spayed or neutered have a higher hormonal drive."

She urges parents to never, ever leave their children alone with a dog.

The case also does not show human involvement and if the mother (using that term loosely) was not involved in some sick action with her child and dog which led to this.

This woman was picked up YET AGAIN for child endangerment. She's not innocent as you seem to think with quotations regarding the incident.

Do a search on her name on the internet and see just how much crime she has been into for the past 8 years. She should be sterilized.

Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies say 29 year old Shauniqua Rodriguez was arrested over the weekend along with a babysitter 25 year old Kelly Arsenault. Deputies responded to a call to an apartment complex on Lincoln Place in the town of Lockport early Sunday morning. A three year old boy was wandering in the street wearing only a diaper for possibly up to an hour and was spotted by a neighbor. “Our first patrol arrived on the scene and did find the boy right away and noticed he was in a soiled diaper so he began to investigate where the boy came from,” the Niagara County Sheriff Chief Deputy said.

Deputies were lead to a nearby apartment and discovered the boy and his two year old sibling were being babysat by Arsenault who said she didn’t realize the three year old left the apartment. Deputies then found where the mother and two children live, in another apartment close by which was filthy. “Within the apartment… saw spoiled food all over, just a slight path you could walk through because so much garbage… and clothes… found a fan that was on and that did not have a cover on it,” the Chief Deputy said.

The mother and babysitter were charged with endangering the welfare of a child and were in court for their arraignment this week. The two children are now in the care of Child Protective Services.

Had Social Services done their job PRIOR to the pit bull accusation neither one of these incidences would have happened. She is well-known in the Lockport area by all agencies and now she’s made the news again. ALL of her children should have been taken away last July when the alleged attack happened.

Do you want a picture of her?

Here she is in her full form on myspace where she has pics of her baby in the hospital after the alleged attack:

it is possible as a dogs penis has 2 parts & 2 fuctions
1st The front of the penis is as thin & sharp as a pencil with a pointed end with a thin bone running through the middle of it
which is called the os bone which makes it easy for him to penitrate tight bitch vaginas
2nd the middle of the penis has a bulbus gland which only swells when it has penitrated the vigina
to keep the to dogs tied together
3rd the base of the penis stays the same size as when it penetrated the vigina
