Lt. Andreotti Doesn’t Think The Pit Bulls are Dangerous
Basically, we don’t have enough to prove the dogs are dangerous. But we’ve talked with the owner, and she’s acknowledged her mistake and that she can’t have the dogs off collar again.
Lt. Andreotti said that one of the male pit bulls had ran up to the poodle which was in the park to sniff the dog. The poodle got defensive and growled that is when the pit bull then attacked. The poodle’s owner then jumped in to try to save the poodle, that is when the female pit bull joined in and bit the woman’s upper arm.
The dogs will have to complete a mandatory 10 day quarantine.
