When two pitbulls rushed through the hole of a chain linked fence and attacked an 11-year-old boy and his 5-year-old sister in Dublin, Ga., big brother took charge.
According to 13 WMAZ-TV, Maleik Carr and his sister Jalia walk through a backyard along the fence to get to the school bus stop each day. But on Monday morning, they were met by the two angry dogs.
“The brown and white dog ran to the other side, jumped out of the fence and the black one did too, and they started snapping at Jalia. So I ran over there started kicking them away from her, and they bit me. And I told Jalia to run,” says Maleik.
She dashed across the street as her big bro bravely battled the two pitbulls.
When they started biting on his legs, he took his sister’s toy chair and began beating them with it. He battled them long enough to hop over his own fence where his sister met and then rushed him to the hospital.
Such a brave young man! Thank goodness for big brothers.
