Maria Aparicio Allegedly Sent Her Pit Bull to Attack a Neighbor; Dog Ran Down the Street and Bit Five Random People Instead

Not the same pitbull (or, "boxer," as Maria Aparicio calls it).
A pit bull went on a biting spree in a Phoenix neighborhood Tuesday after the dog's owner allegedly ordered the pooch to attack her neighbor during an argument.

The pit bull didn't go after the neighbor, instead attacking five people on the street, one as young as 12 years old.

The owner's defense: She didn't think the dog was a pit bull.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, police responded to the neighborhood on the 2100 block of West Sunnyside Drive, after getting a call about nearly everyone on the street getting attacked by the mutt.

A woman told police she had a problem with Aparicio's 10-year-old kid breaking her window a couple of weeks ago and went to Aparicio's house to discuss it.

As the woman went to talk to 35-year-old Maria Aparicio, Aparicio responded with foul language and dropped the N-word on her, according to court documents.

Aparicio then told the 10-year-old kid to "release the dog" on the woman and yelled "get them" when the youngster opened the gate, according to the documents.

Turns out, the dog apparently considered "them" to be all the people on the street, while the court documents state the victim punched Aparicio in the face.

The dog attacked five people, between the ages of 12 and late 30s, biting them in the chest, arm, and/or leg.

The victims told police they were trying to get the dog to stop attacking people, and one 12-year-old kid holding a 1-year-old baby tripped and fell trying to run away from the dog.

The dog was eventually corralled by Aparicio, who later told police her son released the dog for "unk[nown] reasons," the court documents state.

She said she had no idea her dog was attacking people in the street and that it was difficult to round up the "vicious" mutt, according to the documents. Also, Aparicio told police, she thought the dog was a boxer.

Everyone else present told police they were pretty sure the dog was a pit bull. They corroborated the neighbor's story that Aparicio ordered her son to release the dog and yelled "get them."

Animal control officers -- it took two of them -- controlled the dog and took it away.

A few people were treated by fire personnel, but no one was hospitalized. Three of the victims requested that Aparicio be prosecuted.

That was enough to jail Aparicio on three charges, including two counts of aggravated assault with serious physical injury, and one count of aggravated assault on a minor. The dog, defined as a "pitbull/mutt" by police, is considered a weapon in the court documents.

So she tells her kid to release the dog so he can attack the woman. Grrrreeeeaaaaaaaaattttt. Then when her kid displays sociopathic "skills" she'll be the first one to say he was 'a good boy.' And god forbid if a teacher disciplines the kid...

People like this should be put down. I say charge her with attempted murder. I'll also go out on a limb and guess the dog was abused and left outside 24/7 with zero socialization.

Why does it matter that it's a pit?  You should probably do some research on breeds.  Biological traits of a dog have nothing to do with an irresponsible idiot dog owner.

 So Marcy I guess you think your better than a person who lives in a trailer park because they may be poor or old and your rich and successful or something like that? the bible teaches us and sez blessed are the poor for they are rich is spirit. you dont sound like you are rich in spirit by your hateful comments of others who may not be as lucky in life as you are. you sound sad mean lonely and unhappy. Jesus loves the poor. its easier for a camel to get threw the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to get into heaven. being poor aint so bad. at least we are not pompous  snobs.

According to this, the Pit Bull didn't make the cut as the "Top 10 Most Aggressive Dogs", I see the little Chihuahua as one of the most aggressive little mutts at the top of that list:

Even if it isn't a pure bred pitbull it is illegal to harbor a viscious dog in the city limits. The dog owner is in deep doodoo for sicking it on these people.

 Pit bulls are actually genetically bred to NOT hurt humans.  This working breed was designed by "breeding" (actually a process of natural evolution - survival of the best fit - which is sped up by human intervention) to naturally not want to bite humans.  Remember, humans have to be in close contact with this breed when it is "working" (e.g., controlling cattle or other large animals).  Especially when fighting other dogs, the human "controller" is always in close contact with the dog and a bite delivered to the controller will result in the quick dispatching of the animal.  This human behavior has resulted in a very loyal dog which is not apt to bite a human.  A dog like this has to be "trained" to bite another person, especially on command as this incident's reporter states was done. 

It's a shame more people don't get facts before discussing these issues.  Here's a good source for facts:

Um . . . who is hateful, Leo?  

                                                HYPOCRITE!

But, you shall respond to me with some additional hate. 

Go ahead.  

Double dog dare you to write that I am hateful with a derogatory reference to my  . . .  nationality, gender, sexuality, horoscope, height, region, food preferences, religion, political affiliation, fashion sense, or place of origin.

No.  A review of news reports involving Pit Bulls will reveal that baseball bats, sticks and other weapons which are close at hand are ineffective against a Pit bull in attack mode. Cattle prods are not generally available in urban settings.Frankly, other than cutting the dogs head off a "big Knife" is also ineffective.  From a safety stand point a gun is the best means of stopping a dog in attack mode.  If you doubt this go down to the local PD and offer yourself as a target in a K-9 training suit/exercise.  Even with the padding a bite from a German Shepherd or a Belgian hurts.  A Pit will break your arm even if you are in protective gear.

 All pit bulls should be put down. I hope pit bulls eat their owners faces off. They alwasys have some stupid excuse after a pit bull attacks someone.

they are one of the most person friendly dogs out there.  I've owned two from puppy to old age, and I've got a two year old pup now.

Great dogs, extremely obedient and very smart.

that said, an extremely athletic dog can be scary if it's on the loose.

pit bull owners keep your dog under control so you don't make the rest of us look bad.

Use it in an altercation and the cops will take a great deal of interest in you and the prod.  The person whom you applied it to will have his attorney take a great deal of interest in you and will probably own your Harley.

keep the discussion civil.  90% of urban dwellers do not have a need for a cattle prod, probably don't know what one is and don't have one.  Frankly, having worked stock much of my life, I have never had occasion to use one.  So you are proposing that everyone buys and carries a Cattle prod in case of a dog attack.
