Mom Speaks Out After 2 Dogs Bite Off Toddler's Arm [Retracted]

RETRACTION, April 25, 2019: After several readers informed us that Hope Brown’s Facebook post contradicted information her husband had released as well as the bite report from Davis County Animal Control, we noted that she had either deleted her post or made it private. As a result, The Western Journal finds itself unable to make a clear determination of where the truth lies with regard to her claims and the other details of this story, which is tragic regardless of the answers to those questions.

Because of that, and the fact that we do not wish to speculate — particularly where serious injuries to a child are involved — we decided to retract the article in full. We may follow up with additional reporting as the situation becomes more clear.

As of January 2019, Amanda has written over 1,000 stories for The Western Journal but doesn't really know how. Graduating from California State Polytechnic University with a MA in Rhetoric/Composition and TESOL, she wrote her thesis about metacognitive development and the skill transfer between reading and writing in freshman students.
She has a slew of interests that keep her busy, including trying out new recipes, enjoying nature, discussing ridiculous topics, reading, drawing, people watching, developing curriculum, and writing bios. Sometimes she has red hair, sometimes she has brown hair, sometimes she's had teal hair.
With a book on productive communication strategies in the works, Amanda is also writing and illustrating some children's books with her husband, Edward.
