LOCKPORT: Pit bull reportedly attacks neighbor’s dog
A pit bull that had been previously declared dangerous, escaped its yard and attacked a 7-month old german shepherd. The owner of the shepherd was walking his puppy on leash in his back yard. The pit bull grabbed the puppy around the neck and forced him on his back. The owner was able to get the pit bull off but was bitten on the hand in the process.
The owner of the dangerous pit bull claims he has had his dog leashed and muzzled but he slipped on the ice and dropped the leash. Somehow the leash and the muzzle "fell off" and the dog ran across the street. Hopefully the county will order the dog to be euthanized.
