Man Shoots, Kills Pit Bull After Attack
Tamarac, FL - A man shot and killed a pit bull in Broward County on Thursday after the dog got loose and attacked him. Paulo Jean, 35, was taken to a hospital after police said the pit bull bit Jean in both arms and his rear end. The pit bull named, Trouble, escaped from his cage and the neighborhood children started screaming. When Jean ran out side to investigate, he was attacked. Police said Paulo was legally armed and fired back, killing the dog.
The owner was surprised when he returned home to find that his pit bull was dead after attacking and hospitalizing a man. Trouble was apparently known in the neighborhood to have a split personality. Neighbors said he was sometimes friendly and sometimes aggressive. Investigators are still trying to determine whether the dog's owner will face charges.
