McKesson Garrett Succumbs to Injuries Following Vicious Dog Attack

Seventy-two year old McKesson Garrett was hospitalized since July nineteenth after he was attacked by four vicious Rottweilers. Garnett went to visit his friend, Leroy Woods, who lives at mile four on the Phillip Goldson Highway when he was met at the gate by the ferocious dogs. Since then, Garrett’s condition deteriorated and on Sunday morning, at two o’clock, he died. According to his common-law-wife, Shannon Perera, she is not getting assistance from the dog owners nor the police.

    Just soak few pieces of meat in anti freeze and thrown it over their fence or get a gun and shoot them, otherwise there’ll be more victims. Sorry that your love one had to suffer and sorry for your lost.
