The owner's description that the pit bull got free past a 6-foot chain-link fence is an interesting admission. KCCI's story about the Cedar Rapids pit bull attacking a 10-year-old boy and his 18 year old rescuer, Eddie Frye were attacked and are hospitalized needing surgery.
How does a pit-bull get over the top of a 6-foot-chain link fence? That is what I'd like to know. Where are the gates, how do they latch, how securely do they latch, are there any holes under the fence that should have been maintained, was the fence properly constructed to deter digging holes under the fence, etc, etc, etc. If I were a relative I'd bet my camera and head over to photograph the entire fence line. Did this 10-year-old go by there on a daily basis and was the dog simply waiting for him?
