Crazed Pit Bull Attacks and Injures 9 People in Thessaloniki [VIDEO]


A stray pit bull was caught on video by security cameras while savagely attacking people at a gas station in Thessaloniki, northern Greece.

After the attack at Neo Rysio area in Thessaloniki nine people had to be taken to a local hospital. Among them was a 13-year-old minor, a firefighter and a policeman.

At first only six people were hurt after trying to stop the pit bull, however, they were not successful. Greek police officers were forced to intervene, but the crazed dog could not be stopped.

Finally the dog attacked a police officer, a firefighter and a man who attempted to help them and pry the dog off men.

Eventually a police officer shot the dog at the leg, causing it to run off towards the street where a passing fire department truck hit the pit bull and killed it.

    On average in 2014 someone was killed by a pit bull every 13 days. Some of these pit bull attacks were from the family dog that was well trained and had never shown signs of aggression before. The only common in these severe and often fatal attacks is not abuse or lack of training it is breed. Choose the breed of dog you trust the lives of your loved ones with wisely.

  2. “Some of these pit bull attacks were from the family dog that was well trained and had never shown signs of aggression before. ” according to the families which claim they always treat them right…

    You and I, don’t know the circumstances these dogs decided to go bananas on people. It’s rare for a dog -and most other animals- to just start attacking people. Usually someone has mistreated the dog and the pet ever since decided people are worth killing…

    If you have EVER been in Greece you wouldn’t be surprised of a dog attacking. Shop owners of cafeterias through boiling water on stray dogs. People throw meatballs filled with glass in them (cause not only they want them dead, but they also want them to suffer), others who consider themselves pet lovers leave their dogs in the yard all year long in their shit or they hit the dogs, etc.
    The list is long, and it seems you haven’t experienced any of these first hand.

    It’s not rocket science people. You mistreat a dog, guess what happens? It starts bitting back!

    btw, your cute little list forgets to mention that “macho” men tend to favor pitbulls and rottweilers for pets, thus means you’ll end up seeing them often in these types of lists because of that, not because of the breed. Look at UK, they love having pitbulls and mistreat them or use them in dog fights.

  3. Crazed pit bull ‘a la Grecques is delicious when served with roasted potatoes. Clean up should be easy just find the nearest enclave of illegal irregular & regular immigrants excuse me “migrants”, and nothing will be left but the bones.

  4. There is a sure fire cure for pit bulls running amok that suddenly turn on family or have rabies. All you have to do is place a soft piece of lead by the dogs left and the problem is instantly alleviated. You ask how that is done? The best method is with a gun.

  5. Shoot the ugly thing and be done with it. At least its dead. Anyone wanting to “save” an animal after this kind of unprovoked attack needs their head examined.

  6. Shoot around gas and it might explode! I might have sprayed gas on that ugly thing but that might cause an explosion too.

  7. Continue looking into dog bit statistics of all breeds. Yes, we all know, you’ll find “pit bull” listed at the top and all that stuff – which is not my point here. Family animals account for the majority of all bites/attacks; regardless of breed of dog of species of pet. It’s a risk everyone with a pet takes. I have a scar from my Boxer who jumped up on me and came down wrong, catching her nail on my finger. I have deeper scars from my cat who has a biting/scratching problem. I would be scar free (and far less happy) if I didn’t own these pets. Everything is a risk and we all have a right to take those risks we choose into our lives.

  8. Because it’s not a monster; it’s a dog. Compassionate, clear thinking, human beings have a hard time killing other living beings. Even in high tension situations.

  9. What is happy about this ending? A dog is dead (which is fair) and multiple people are recovering physically and emotionally. This is a sad situation all around…

  10. There is so much more to this then saying they should “all be put down.” What is the line? Are we going by number of bites. Fatal, non fatal, both? I assume other breeds considered inherently dangerous would be included here; German Shepherds, Rottweiler, Doberman, Chow Chow, etc.? Where will the funding for the program that will be put in place to locate and euthanize these animals come from? Where will the funding to dispose of the bodies come from? How far would taxes be raised on non-dog owners to accommodate this program and how will you gain the support of the public to pay these taxes? Would this run on donations? What if donations fall short? What kind of policies would be put in place to ensure current owners either control their property or have it remove? Will we be fining or jailing those owners who attempt to keep their dogs who have not proven violent to date? Where will the time and funding for these resources come from to seek out and ticket or prosecute these owners? Beyond all of this; what is the plan to circumvent or change the existing laws and constitutional amendments that protect your fellow citzen’s rights to their non-harmful (as yet proven) property? What campaigns will be run to change these amendments and laws and where is the campaign funding coming from? Are the resources and finances available for you to fight this in a prolonged, high court, setting if advocates find funding to fight your new proposals? Do you have the financial or political motivation to offer your local, state, and federal officials to go to bat for you on this?

  11. This is the problem when selective breeding for the purpose of creating a fighting dog is misperceived to be a pet.
