CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A 71-year-old grandmother was mauled to death by a family pit bull. A mail carrier is scarred for life after an attack.

Local kennels are swarming with pit bulls as incidents across northeast Ohio breed fear.

The number of pit bulls in northeast Ohio is on the rise. The dogs have been connected to at least 40 percent of bite attacks in Cleveland this year.

"I do not believe that the City of Cleveland has a pit bull problem," says Chief Ed Jamison, Cleveland's Chief Animal Control Officer.

Cleveland 19's Chief Investigator Carl Monday has the numbers. He's taking a hard look at the city's overpopulation of dogs and the common thread in dog bites.

Join us Wednesday at 11 p.m. to learn what Carl has uncovered.
