Quick thinking by two observers. who risked their own lives. rescued an indigent from an attack by two pit bull guard dogs in Desamparados Thursday, reported the national newspaper La Nacion.

Jose Luis Jimenez, 30, was collecting discarded aluminum and plastic to sell to recyclers from the Cucubres River bed when the two dogs guarding shops on one river bank attacked him.

Jimenez was rushed to San Juan de Dios Hospital for deep bites on arms and legs and was reported in stable condition after surgery to his left arm where the most damage had been inflicted.

But undoubtedly the attack would have had even more serious — even fatal — consequences if an unidentified high school student and maintenance man Marvin Machado had not rushed to rescue Jimenez.

Disregarding the risk to their lives, the pair administered a swift blow to the nose of the largest dog with a stout stick. The dog retreated. The smaller dog decided to discontinue the assault.

An official at Monseñor Sanabria High School had warned Jimenez not to continue along the riverbed due to the dogs that guarded shops on the river banks. But Jimenez ignored the warning.

One high school official said the dogs run loose during the day. They are prevented from entering school grounds by a wall but he asked, “What would happen if a student falls into the river?”

The dogs were identified as a cross between pit bulls and American Staffordshires but this was undoubtedly a misidentification. Ticos tend to identify any large, aggressive dog as a pit bull.

Moreover, other breeds are often incorrectly called pit bulls including Rottweilers.

But Desamparados, a southern suburb of San Jose, has a real problem with dog attacks. Most attacks have been from dogs trained (read, “made vicious”) in order to contest other canines in illegal fighting rings.
