MAN BOY BITES DOG: “An 11-year old boy is in Brazil’s media spotlight after sinking his teeth into the neck of a dog that attacked him. Local newspapers reported on Thursday that Gabriel Almeida was playing in his uncle’s backyard in the city of Belo Horizonte when a pit bull named Tita lunged at him and bit him in the left arm. Almeida grabbed the dog by the neck and bit back — biting so hard that he lost a canine tooth.” Hey, it’s called a “canine tooth” for a reason.
