Snap! Three New Victims
Las Vegas, NV - A Las Vegas police officer shot and killed a male pit bull that bit three people at a Skypointe Drive gas station. The dog wandered into the gas station parking lot and attacked an 8-year old girl and her father as they were pumping gas. The father lifted his daughter onto the hood of his car then scrambled up himself. As the pit bull tried to jump onto their car, a Good Samaritan angled his SUV next to the vehicle so the man and his daughter could get away.
But the pit bull was not finished attacking.
The dog then ran inside the adjacent Short Line Express Market and continued its assault by latching onto a man's arm. The man dragged the dog outside by the collar with the animal still hanging from his arm. Police arrived on the scene and shot the animal killing it (view like scenario). As expected, the dog lacked identification, such as tags or microchipping. All three victims were treated at the hospital. The two adult men reportedly suffered the worst injuries.
Animal Control had been called to pick up the loose pit bull earlier, but they arrived too late.
