How do you get rid of a pitbull bite?

Resist the impulse to scream and run away. Remain motionless, hands at your sides, and avoid eye contact with the dog. Once the dog loses interest in you, slowly back away until it is out of sight. If the dog does attack, "feed" it your jacket, purse, bicycle or anything you can put between yourself and the dog.

Try forcing your hand down into its throat to make it choke. Once the pit bull has got its teeth into your arm, it won't let go (illegal pit-bull trainers use "breaking sticks" to lever the jaws open). Stay upright as long as possible and, if you can, try to restrain the dog by putting your free arm around its neck.

If the dogs are off leash, then they can be grabbed and lifted off each other by the hind legs or tail—but be warned—dogs can twist quite quickly to bite!
