Dog owner shoots, kills stray pit bull to save pet

When police arrived at the 1700 block of Polk Street Sunday to investigate a report of shots fired, they found a distressed dog owner that told them, “there was a pit bull killing his dog in the back yard.”

Police reports show the man, who has not been charged with any crime, shot the pit bull as it attacked his dog, a Labrador mix, outside the home.

He said the pit bull chased his dog into the back yard, where they began to fight. The 12-year-old Lab mix is missing teeth, his owner said and suffered several bite marks in the attack and was bleeding.

Finally, the dog’s owner, who works as a security guard, shot the pit bull multiple times with a .357 handgun.

The animal died at the scene and was picked up by Animal Control officers.
