Dog bites off man’s nose in Chicago-Why?

Dog bites off man’s nose in Chicago-Why?

Posted by Sandra Worthington | Apr 04, 2012 | 0 Comments

Why would a dog do such a thing if unprovoked? As the victim described, it is usually the fault of the owner for failing to properly train and socialize the animal. It is not a significant factor, according to my sources, that this was a pit bull. Pit bulls can be trained just like any other breed. However, there isn't much detail in this article about the way the pit bull was raised. It is interesting that the victim didn't blame the bite on the dog but implied that the incident was actually the fault of the owner.

This man has no insurance and hundreds of thousands of dollars of reconstructive surgery to be performed to attempt to restore a nose on his face. I will suggest that he contact Fresh Start Surgical Gifts in California to see what they suggest. Go to to see what they do which is free plastic and reconstructive surgery for children (mostly) who are disfigured from congenital or accidents (like dog bites). They are amazing.

Despite all this, Lesinski, who has owned pit bulls for 20 years, has stressed that the incident was not Monster's fault. “I want it known that it's not the breed; it's the owners and how they raise the dog,” he told WLS-TV. Lesinski, who recently started his own towing company, does not have health insurance and created a fund at a TCF Bank in hopes of collecting donations to help with medical bills, which could cost him up to $200,000. According to WMAQ-TV, Monster has been taken into custody by Chicago's Animal Care and Control.
