Update on Bryce:
My two oldest boys drove to Birmingham yesterday to visit Bryce. They got a little more of the story. He and his brother had been in the creek bottom. When they came out into the field/yard near their house, the dogs began “attacking” or moving toward them with obvious ill intent. He sent his brother to get help and charged the dogs so his brother could escape.
The dogs knocked him down and he fought with them until help came. One great dane got his head and face, another got an arm, and the third one of his legs and tried to pull him apart. The fourth chewed on his foot.
When the father, mother and grown sister arrived. The dogs attacked them also so The dad had to fight off a continuing attack with a pipe while the ladies evac-ed the boy. John (father) said it felt just like a combat situation. Both (mom & dad) were army mp’s who fought in Iraq, John was a combat Marine in Somalia before that.
He is anxious to go home but still has bad wounds that need the wound vac contraption. They keep doing surgeries to reconstruct everything. He can only use one arm for now. They are pretty confident he’ll regain use of it pretty much completely.
The dogs have to go before the county judge so he can decide if they “pose a sufficient threat to the community as to require eradication”. Seems like a waste of time to me, but that’s how the system keeps working I guess.
