An 11-year old Brazilian boy was making headlines after sinking his teeth into a pit bull's neck to save himself from an attack by the vicious dog. Local media reported that Gabriel Almeida was playing in his uncle's backyard in the city of Belo Horizonte when the pitbull, called Tita, lunged at him and bit him on the left arm. To protect himself, Gabriel grabbed the dog by the neck and bit back - so hard that he lost a canine tooth. (c) 2008 Western Mail. Provided by ProQuest...
