Police shoot pit bull dog on Johnson Park Golf Course

RACINE - Racine police Friday shot and killed a pit bull terrier at the Johnson Park Golf Course.

Around 5 p.m. police responded to a call that two aggressive pit bulls were on the course at 6200 Northwestern Ave. and were preventing golfers from passing, said Racine Police Sgt. Rick Toeller.

When police arrived, one of the dogs appeared about to attack an officer who then shot it. The other dog ran away and was not recovered, Toeller said.

He said the dogs' owners could not be identified.

"They had collars but no tags," he said. "They appeared to be living in the woods a while. They had a den."
