EAGLE ROCK (CBSLA.com)  — A man who was trying to collect donations for the D.A.R.E. program was attacked by a Pitbull in Eagle Rock Thursday night.

CBS 2’s Rachel Kim reported from outside Glendale Adventist Medical Center where the victim is being treated.

The man was trying to raise funds on for the anti-drug program on Colorado Boulevard when he was allegedly bitten by the dog.

The 20-year-old man said two women gave him $10 and moved on but then later returned with the Pitbull. The man asked if the dog was friendly and if he could pet it. The women said yes and he was bitten in the face and head. The two women took off with the dog and have not been identified.  The injuries are not life-threatening but the man will need plastic surgery.

Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD Northeast station.

    Obviously if they are walking there pittbull in that area and were there an hour earlier that means that they live there locally. It’s not to hard to get the video feed from the fast food restaurant to find them.

  2. Until such time as legislators get their heads out of their nether regions and BAN pit bulls USA-wide, THIS is what will continue to happen day in and day out in the USA. Meantime, we are stuck with learning self-defense measures to protect ourselves and our pets from unprovoked maiming and deadly attacks by the world’s most dangerous and unpredictable dog “breed”…the pit bull.

    It could have been a child and a child might not have been as lucky. Pit bulls are mauling and killing like no other breed in history. How many people and beloved pets have to die before legislators stop bowing to the small, but vocal, minority of those obsessed with a breed more than obsessed with the safety of you and yours?

    Well… thats why you put cholo-as & pit-bulls on their own private island, away from civilization.

  5. Not unusual behavior for pit bull owners whose dogs maul a human or somebody’s pet – take the dog and run, don’t worry about others’ injuries, don’t apologize and above all, don’t offer to take responsibility and pay for the damages.
