Just as we're trying to process the tragedy of a 10 day old Kalamazoo baby being mauled to death by the family pit bull, we learn of another grisly attack.
37 year old State Senator Bert Johnson (D-Highland Park) is crediting his thick, winter gloves with preventing his fingers from being completely severed from his hand. While clearing his driveway on Monday, a pit bull ( illegal in Highland Park) charged him. He slipped while trying to escape and his left hand jammed up into the snowblower. He cut all his fingers and broke 5 bones.
As his hand was being mangled, he kicked the dog in the face and was able to escape.
I know. I know. They're loving, gentle dogs.
