Pit bulls attack neighbour in south Chiefland

-A A +A
By Sean Arnold

A scary situation could’ve ended a lot worse than it did.

Richard Corbin received a call from his son, Jay, who just left his side to visit neighbors on May 11.

When Corbin looked up, Jay, a 23-year-old with special needs, was being attacked by three pit bulls approximately 200 feet away.

Corbin rushed to the scene and scared the dogs away. Jay was able to fend off the dogs just enough to avoid going to the ground and undergoing more serious injuries, and somehow make the phone call, but his clothes didn’t survive the attack. He used his belt to repel the animals, Corbin said.

Jay received stitches at Shands Hospital in Gainesville and was later released.

“They were having a little campfire so he was going over to visit, and one of the neighbor’s three pit bulls was out – two came out of the pasture and one came out of the neighbor’s gate and attacked him,” Corbin said. “They shredded him up pretty good, man. They literally almost tore his clothes off him.”
