Pit Bull Kills 6 Goats, Shot In Process

That Palouse group that's trying to improve the image of pit bulls had better avoid Dion and Joanetta Holton of Ohio Match Road/Athol. At about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, Dion, a Coeur d'Alene city worker, found a neighbor's pit bull in a pen in his yard after it had killed his six pygmy goats. The pit bull had chewed the head off one goat. All the goats were mauled and had wounds to either the neck of head area, according to a Kootenai County sheriff's deputy report. The Holtons tried to contain the vicious dog in the pen. But it jumped out. Fearing for the safety of his wife and him, Holton shot the dog in the side with his shotgun. A deputy later put the dog out of its misery with a single shot to the head from his Glock 21. The deputy later contacted the pit bull's owner who said that her dog had had only one other incident involving livestock, when it chased horses. She was cited for her dog's attack.

Question: So you still love pit bulls?
