Dog Named Scarface Goes Berserk, Hospitalizes Owners After They Try to Put Sweater on Him


A Tampa couple found themselves in the hospital after their attempts to put a sweater on their dog resulted in a vicious attack that required police intervention.

According to WFTS, a pit bull mix named Scarface bit Brenda Guerrero when she tried to get the sweater on him. Scarface then attacked her husband, Ismael Guerrero, when he tried to pull him off of Brenda.

At this point, the Guerrero’s adult son, Antoine Harris, tried to come to the rescue by stabbing Scarface in the head with a knife. This only resulted in Harris getting attacked and all three people eventually ran into the house and left Scarface in the backyard.

Animal Control and police then showed up and found that they also had their hands full with Scarface, who was at this point appeared unstoppable.

“Officers responding said the dog was pretty aggressive,” Eddy Durkin with Tampa police said. “When they tazed the dog the dog was still pulling away and was able to release the prongs from the tazer.”

When Animal Control and Tampa Police arrived to the home, the dog was shot with a tranquilizer gun. After the dog got into the house, where there were two children in the back room, TPD officers deployed a bean bag gun and taser to subdue the dog. Eventually, the dog was captured by Animal Control by using a “catch pole.”

The Guerreros were taken to the hospital and Mrs. Guerrero’s injuries were considered serious, but not life-threatening. It hasn’t been indicated yet if the dog will be euthanized.

Perhaps one should think twice before trying to put a sweater on a pit bull named Scarface.
