Cary, IL - 5 November 2005: Pit Bull Pack Mauls 6 in Extended Attack

Three pit bulls rampaged and injured 6 people in this Chicago suburb on Saturday, 5 November. The attack was apparently triggered when children going door-to-door for a fundraiser arrived at the home of Scott Sword, 41, who owned the dogs. One child is in critical condition after the attack, which continued for fifteen minutes.

"They just coming in biting and just biting hard, shaking their heads," said Jim Malone, a witness.
