We recently received this report of a pit bull attacking another dog at the MLT dog park from MLTnews reader, Catherine.
Today I witnessed a pit bull attack an American Eskimo dog at the MLT Dog Park. The pit bull gave no warning and sunk her teeth into the dog while the dog shrieked in fear and pain. At least five people tried to pull the pit bull away from the dog. The owner slammed his dog into the ground but the dog got loose and ran after the little white dog AGAIN! It was horrifying and an unprovoked attack.
The American Eskimo suffered substantial damage to one of his ears and had a puncture wound in his neck. He had surgery this afternoon to repair the damage.
THAT pit bull was very sweet and nice to everyone too – up to 30 seconds before the attack. We contacted the MLT police and made a report. If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it, but that dog SNAPPED.
Please control your animals, people.
I’ll check in with the MLT PD to see if any charges come from this.
