Spokane Pit Bull Attacks 5

Police shot and killed a pit bull Wednesday night after it attacked five people and tried to evade capture in north Spokane. It’s the third serious pit bull attack in Spokane in the past week. The attack Wednesday happened at an apartment complex in the 6800 block of North Atlantic Street, said Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service director Nancy Hill. When an animal protection officer arrived, the animal was still loose and the SCRAPS officer tried to catch it. “An apartment complex is not well-suited to cornering and capturing the dog,” Hill said. A Spokane police officer assisting with the call killed the dog with a shotgun when it could not be caught, said Spokane County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Mark Gregory/SR. More here.

Question: Is there a pit bull in your neighborhood?
