After 5th Attack on a Human, Kim Richards Finally Sends Pit Bull to Trainer


People.com:
After Kim Richards's beloved pit bull Kingsley attacked her niece, Alexia Umansky, earlier this month, the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has temporarily removed the dog from her home.

"He's in a good place," Richards told TMZ on Saturday. "He's safe and with a trainer."

But the decision to send her dog away didn't come easy, despite a total of five reported incidents where Kingsley attacked humans.

"At this point I am looking into options to what the next step is for Kingsley," Richards, 50, said in a statement received by the New York Post after Kim's sister, Kyle (who also appears on the show), confirmed that her daughter had been bitten


"Regarding Alexia: She was attacked by a dog and has to have surgery. As always, she is trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Thank you for your thoughts & well wishes," Richards posted on Facebook Nov. 4.

Despite the animal's aggressive behavior, it doesn't appear that the mom of four – who got the dog to be her companion once her children moved out of the house – has any plans to put him down.

"As many of you can relate, he is my best friend," says Richards. "This is a very difficult decision and time for all of us, but the safety of my family always comes first."
