Police say a man shot and killed a pit bull after his German Shepherd was attacked in his backyard Friday morning.
Police say two stray pit bulls attacked a one-year-old German Shepherd that was chained up in the backyard of a home Lin Wal Road.
According to Animal Control, the owner of the Shepherd shot one of the pit bulls in the neck, killing it. The other pit bull took off. Animal Control searched for the dog, but the search was unsuccessful.
A neighbor called police around 9:30 a.m. when they noticed the incident. The neighbor says the pit bulls had been roaming the neighborhood for a while, but hadn't caused any trouble until Friday morning.
The second pit bull is described as a reddish color with a white belly.
The Shepherd suffered a few punctures, but is expected to survive.
No arrests are expected to be made in the case.
