Mother’s Devastated Over Pit Bull Ruling

On Behalf of / Thursday, 01 May 2014 / Published in Dog Bite, felony, Personal Injury

Pit Bull Ruling Allows Vicious Pit Bull to Live

A local mother is very disappointed in the ruling that allowed a pit bull to live even though it viciously attacked her four year old son. The Judge ruled that Mickey the pit bull will be spending the rest of his life in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office at the MASH unit.

The dog was indeed declared vicious after it had attacked the young Kevin Vicente. The boy was at his babysitter’s home at the time of the bite. The attack left the little boy with severe facial scars. One of his eyes has to remain shut and he now has to have around the clock care.

The Young Boy’s Mother, Floridalma Vicente’s statement

He’s going to start therapy so he can learn how to chew again and the food doesn’t fall out of his mouth.

Miss Vicente is a single mother, she sadly had to quit her job to take care of her son full time.

Kevin tries to stay strong for his Mother

I start to cry and he says ‘don’t cry mom.

As a mother she sometimes feels helpless and isn’t sure of what to do next. She says that the day of the accident still haunts her.

Vicente’s Recollection of that Day

When the doctor told me that he [the dog] had bit part of his face off and broken this here, I didn’t know what to do.

Kevin’s mother is shocked that pit bull supporters rallied together to help keep the dog alive. She couldn’t believe that people had more support for a dog than her hurt child. She’s also hurt by people feeling sorry for the dog not being able to be outside, her poor child has lost one of his eyes and has permanent damage to his face.

If you want to help the pit bull victim’s family

An account to help pay for Kevin’s medical bill has been set up at Bank of America under “Floridalma Vicente.” The account number is #457027280058.
