A Siberian husky was attacked by a pit bull at a dog show, leaving the poor dog bloodied and the audience members horrified.
The judges were making a decision for the show dogs when the pit bull grabbed the husky's head by the side and shook it violently. Handlers struggled to pull the animals apart. The helpless husky tried to break free putting its paw on the pit bull's head but in vain. The husky had to be treated by vets for a wound near its right ear after the handlers eventually managed to separate the dogs. That said, the husky didn't appear to suffer any serious injuries.

The person who filmed the incident which took place at a dog show inside an arena in Chiang Mai, Thailand, said they were left considerably perturbed by the incident.
According to Daily Mail, the person who shot the video said: "Handlers had difficulty releasing the dogs. Neither sustained serious injuries. Vets were nearby and stopped the bleeding, saying the husky would be fine. I was shaking." However, it was unclear what caused the pit bull to make the move.
Pit bulls are infamous across the globe due to numerous attacks on humans and other animals, sometimes even fatal. While they were traditionally bred for fighting, they have been banned in many countries or cities around the world, the UK being one of them. But they are not banned in Thailand.
On the other hand, quite a few owners claim pit bulls are loyal, safe, and affectionate companions if cared for properly.
Despite tougher sentences for owners, dog attacks have hit an all-time high, according to Sunday People. In the 12 months to April this year, reports showed that nearly 22 people a day needed hospital treatment from such attacks. According to Mirror, of the 8,014 victims in England, 1,500 were kids, 527 were toddlers and 42 were babies.
