Oliver Miraculously Survives Vicious Knife and Pit Bull Attack
Twenty-three stab wounds and two badly mangled ears were the result of what started out as a leisurely afternoon stroll in his own normally quiet neighborhood. Oliver began his walk on Courthouse Road, and when he reached Bevills Hills Mobile Home Park he decided to turn in and have a look around. What happened next was something horror movies are made of.
Oliver barely made it onto the mobile home park property when he encountered 23-year-old Benjamin Fullwood and his two pet pit bulls. Without warning, Fullwood immediately sicced the two pits on the unsuspecting pedestrian. The dogs brutally attacked, repeatedly chewing, tearing, and gnawing at Oliver’s flesh. Witnesses, including several children, were appalled at the sheer violence of the charge. But the bloodshed didn’t stop there.
Fullwood produced a knife and joined his dogs in their attack on their defenseless victim, stabbing Oliver nearly two dozen times, landing most of the blows in the neck and leg area.
Bystanders dialed 911 and sheriff’s deputies arrived in short order, but the damage was done. Oliver was severely injured and bleeding profusely from his wounds.
Fullman initially lied to the deputies, stating that he’d merely punched the victim, but the deep stab wounds told a different story. Of course, the crowd of witnesses also told a different tale of the unprovoked, senseless attack.
Deputies arrested Fullwood and transported him to the local jail where his bond was set at $25,000. He also ordered the defendant to stay away from Oliver and his kin. Fullwood has an extensive criminal history that includes theft, weapons offenses, arson, and cruelty to animals.
The good news is that Oliver is expected to make a full recovery.
It’s still unclear, though, as to why a grown man would so viciously attack a passive pet pig named Oliver, unless the wandering porker was a witness to illegal activity committed by Fullman, and he was afraid the pig would squeal…
Oliver’s doctors say they expect him to make a full recovery
*Update – Benjamin Fullman has been released on bond.

And, Oliver was released from the animal hospital Saturday morning after this posting. His owner says there’s a special place in his heart for Oliver since it was a new valve from a pig’s heart that gave him a second chance at life.
A pet pig!!! What a slimy sleazeball! I’m hoping he visits Texas some day and gets taken down by one of the vicious wild boars roaming the plains out west. Ugh!
What is scary is that Fullman is now out and obviously is very dangerous. First it’s animals… then it’s people. I hope he was required to have a psyche exam before being released.
Perhaps “inbreeding” is the true problem, and I’m not talking about the dogs.
Oh, real big ‘man’ – attacking a passive, innocent animal. What a disgusting little cowardly P.O.S.! I’m furious that he’s out on bail! Why are the laws so lax regarding animal cruelty? It’s only a matter of time before he moves on up to attacking humans (if he hasn’t started already). And his dogs should be taken away – their aggressive behavior is the result of the treatment they received (please don’t blame the breed for the attack).
That is appalling. Fullman looks very happy in his mugshot and I for one would like to wipe the smile off his face. Cruelty to animals, no matter how vicious, is far too often treated as a misdemeanor by magistrates and judges, so I hope this sadistic specimen gets suitably punished. His dogs should be taken away and he should never be allowed to have or go near an animal again. Not sure how they can police that, but this man needs to be PUNISHED.
Oliver is a pet pig who resided in a nearby petting zoo. I understand his physical health is as well as can be expected. Mentally, he’s frightened and skittish around humans he doesn’t know.
Poor Oliver 🙁
I kinda want to punch Fullman – he looks far too happy in his mugshot.
This is sickening! I believe there is a special place in hell for people who abuse animals. I’d just like to give this guy a taste of it here on earth.
You know, I happen to believe in karma.
Which means that there’s a place in my black little heart that’s quietly hoping for somebody to discover the hard way that wild hogs can indeed take down a full man, if you know what I’m saying.
The past record tells me this guy wasn’t thinking that Oliver was a wild porker wandering into town either, which is the only way I could see training the dogs for that being conceivably justified.
How awful. Poor lil piggy.
This actually happened last week, not far from Savannah.
That is a good twist ending. I saw the picture before I finished reading your tale. I was confused at first, trying to make the image into a human and then realized that I had made an assumption about the protagonist of the story.
Unfortunately, it’s a true story that happened last week.
What a great story,Lee, and as usual,
a good surprise ending.
