A Florida pitbull freaked out on its family, hospitalizing two of them, when they attempted to put a Christmas sweater on him.
The dog, named Scarface, attacked its owner Brenda Guerrero when she went to put the garment on him and then bit her husband, Ismael Guerrero when he struggled to wrestle the angry dog off of his wife, WFTS reported.
The Guerrero’s adult son Antoine Harris was next to attempt a rescue by stabbing Scarface in the head with a knife, but he too was attacked.
All three family members ran into the home and left the dog in the backyard while they called police for help.
When animal control arrived they too had issues with containing the angry dog, according to WFTS.
“Officers responding said the dog was pretty aggressive,” Tampa police spokesman Eddy Durkin said. “When they tazed the dog the dog was still pulling away and was able to release the prongs from the tazer.”
Animal control used a tranquilizer gun and when the dog made its way into the home where the children were in the back room, police used a bean bug gun. Authorities were eventually able to be captured with use of a “catch pole.”
Brenda Guerrero’s injuries were considered serious but non-life threatening, WFTS said.
It is unknown if the dog will be euthanized.
