Chicago, IL - Police fatally shot a pit bull and were searching for a second one Monday afternoon after the animals attacked a man walking his dog on the Northwest Side.
The incident occurred in the 3700 block of West Agatite Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood. Officer Tom Polick said that a man was walking his dog when two pit bulls attacked the smaller dog. The man called 911 on his cell phone and police officers who responded fatally shot one of the pit bulls. The other pit bull ran away.
Cleophus Cavin, a supervisor with the Chicago Animal Care and Control Commission, believes the pit bulls were strays. Fortunately, there were no reports of injuries to the officers or the man.
