Chad Bird Attacked by Pit Bulls, Saves Boy, 14 from 3 Dogs

 Chad Bird, Teen Mauled Marysville Pit Bull Dog Attack Yuba and 14th Streets (Jan. 8)MARYSVILLE, Calif. (Jan. 10, 2019) — Chad Bird, 28, was attacked by three pit bull dogs Tuesday morning when he jumped out of his car to pulled them off a 14-year-old boy they were attacking and the dogs turned on him.

Bird was driving past Eastpark Lake when he told authorities he saw the teenager being “thrown around like a rag doll.” The dogs were biting on the teen’s arms, leg and chest as he screamed for help. He told news reporters that there were adults nearby, but no one was helping the boy.

It was about 10:45 a.m. at Yuba and 14th streets. The driver immediately stopped and got out to help the teenager as he was worried the kid was going to be killed. However, as he pulled the dogs off the teen he was attacked by the pack of dogs. One of the dragged him down by the ankles and another jumped on his back.

The owner of the dogs, who had one of the animals on a leash, was unable to stop the dogs from attacking Bird or the teenager. Max Jacobo, a neighbor who heard the screams for help, used a shovel to hit one of the dogs and end the attack. By this time, Bird had suffered serious injuries and was transported to a hospital for treatment of two broken ankles and puncture marks to his arms. The teen’s injuries were significant, but not life-threatening.

Marysville Police and the department of animal services were called to the scene. The dogs were all quarantined and there is no history of any of them attacking a person in the past.  The owner was not facing criminal charges and the dogs may be returned to her if she pays fees to animal care services.

“Both Mr. Bird, and Max Jacobo who came to his aid, should be considered heroes,” said Attorney James Johnson.
Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group hope all those affected get the medical care necessary for a full recovery.
