Severn, MD - Two pit bulls have been taken into custody after attacking a pair of ponies on a Severn farm, Anne Arundel County police said. The ponies were outside when the dogs, which live in a nearby trailer park and were running loose, clamped onto their noses, said Lt. Jeffrey Silverman.
The ponies suffered minor facial injuries. One of the children on a passing bus recorded the mauling on his cell phone and handed it over to Animal Control. The dogs are being held at the Millersville headquarters of Animal Control pending results of its investigation. The dog owners are "fighting" to get the dogs back.
Due to their bull baiting and dog fighting heritage, pit bulls have no qualms about attacking large or small animals.Pit bulls are "animal aggressive." This trait is unacceptable without regulation. Animal lovers that refuse to listen to the rational behind breed-specific measures only have themselves to blame for the countless attacks pit bulls inflict on the rest of the animal population.

After watching the video, I've decided to build some traps to put in a wooded area of our horse pasture and fenced off to exclude the horses. No pit bull will ever be returned. Period. End of story.
