Pit Bull Owner Pleads Guilty to Attack

Travis Dean Cunningham has pleaded guilty to possession of a dangerous dog after his two pit bulls mauled a 72-year-old woman. Huong Le was returning home after walking a child she cares for to the school-bus stop when she was attacked. A neighbor called 911 and used a pitchfork to try to get the dogs off her. When King County sheriff deputies arrived, the dogs were still biting her so they fatally shot the two male dogs. Le suffered severed ears, a crushed arm and deep bite wounds all over her body. Cunningham was arrested in September after his two dogs escaped the fenced yard and attacked Huong Le.
