November 3, 2009–A 35 year old Bakersfield man named Steven Herrera was attacked and mauled by 3 pit bull dogs on Tuesday afternoon.  The Kern County attack is similar to several other pip bull attacks in the valley as reported on recently in this blog.  In this case Mr. Herrera was saved by the efforts of a neighbor named Andy Casteneda who swung his cane at the dogs before they could chew the arm off of the victim.  The owner of the dogs, Salvador Romero is the brother of the victim.
