Man mauled by pit bull on Milwaukee's north side speaks out
MILWAUKEE- A man who was mauled by a pit bull on Milwaukee's north side is talking for the first time
Anthony Johnson was attacked by the pit bull over the weekend near N. 42nd Street and W. Capitol Dr.
The dog jumped over a small porch as Johnson and his wife were walking their dog down an alley.
Johnson is covered with scars and bandages after being bitten more than 35 times. He needed stitches on his left ear and left arm.
He credits two angels in the neighborhood for coming to his rescue.
Johnson said he doesn't know how he survived the vicious attack.
"I started protecting my neck, the back of my neck, all the vital parts that I know a dog could take you out," said Johnson. "And I just kept praying, kept praying I'm going to win, didn't know I was going to win, but I won. I'm still here."
When police arrived at the scene, they shot and killed the dog but they could not find the dog owner.
He turned himself in on Monday.
Johnson may take legal action to recover thousands of dollars in medical bills.
