Jessie Clarke of Detroit shows her scar tissue from dozens of stitches used to close a gash ripped by two pit bulls that attacked the 65-year-old outside her east side home in April. There are similar marks on one of her legs. There was a lot of biting. There were a lot of stitches, Clarke said from her dining room, looking through a window at the spot of the attack. She and other city residents are aware that Detroit is home to packs of dogs _ some vicious and others wary of people _ that have found safe haven in vacant houses and buildings.
