On September 11, 2015, a man was attacked by a pair of dogs who tore him up until he was sitting in a pretty sizable pool of blood. All reports I came across say the dogs were Pit Bulls. It’s hard to say from the video, but they could also be American Bulldogs. 62 year old Francesco Bove, an artist from Coney Island, said he was on his way to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church on Belmont Avenue and 187th Street in the Bronx when he was attacked. Neighbors, including the priest, quickly came to the victim’s aid, who was mauled so badly, the priest read him his last rites, because he through the man was going to die. 55 year old Cynthia Oliver, owner of the dogs, was arrested and charged with eight counts of assault and two counts of reckless endangerment, for allegedly releasing the dogs on the victim.
