Another Victory for "Safe Storage"

Pit Bull Enters Home Attacking Teen, Dogs

A pit bull charged into a south sound home near Ethel on Friday night coming after 19-year-old Jennifer Lee and killing her shih tzu, GT.

“It ran right over the top of me after the dog,” Lee said.

According to Lee, the pit bull attacked and quickly killed her small dog while she scrambled to get her husky puppies rounded up and locked into a bathroom.

“I was screaming my head off,” Lee said.Lee told KIRO 7 Eyewitness New she ran to the back of her home to the family’s gun safe looking for protection.

“By the time I got to the guns, the dog had blocked me in and I realized the bullets were not in the guns,” Lee said.

Lee then called her mother who was in Oregon at the time.

“She’s screaming, she’s terrified,” Lee’s mother said after replaying the voice mail Lee left on her phone.

One of Lee’s friends knocked on the door as Lee was cornered and distracted the dog so Lee could escape through a window.

“She could have been mauled. She’d be dead. There’s no way she could fight off a pit bull ,” Lee’s mother said.

According to Lee’s family, the pit bull left bite marks on the hardwood floor where it attacked the shih tzu and destroyed part of a new video game console.
