Saint George

Jack Russell against 2 pitbulls. Guess who died?


A plucky foot-high Jack Russell terrier named George saved five New Zealand children from two marauding pitbulls. But little George was so severely mauled in the fight he had to be destroyed, according to his devastated owner.

George was playing with the group of children as they returned home from buying sweets at a neighborhood shop in the small North Island town of Manaia when the two pitbulls appeared and lunged toward them.

One of the children was quoted as saying George fought with the pitbulls to keep them off his four-year-old brother.

The two pitbulls ripped the skin from his throat and chest and down his back. The vet had to put George to sleep.

A dog died for you! You better grow up useful, young lady!

The pitbulls' owner surrendered the pair to dog control officers, and demanded they be destroyed, claiming they had launched unprovoked attacks previously. Gee, thanks Mr Responsible Owner.

Moral of the story? Dogs are better and more useful than kids. Heh.

R.I.P. George!
