Elk Grove Police kill 2 aggressive pit bulls

By Ward Koppel, KXTV

Police shot and killed 2 pitbulls Saturday morning, after the dogs attacked one person, and threatened two others. According to Elk Grove Police spokesman Chris Trim, a man was bitten by the dogs just after 7 a.m. The man had to climb on top of a car to get away from the dogs. An Elk Grove police officer arrived on scene and attempted to corral the dogs in the 9000 block of Rancho Drive. Trim says the officer noticed an elderly couple walking on the opposite side of the street. The dogs also saw the couple, and charged at them. Trim says the officer put himself between the couple and the dogs, and because it appeared they were about to attack the couple, he shot and killed both dogs.
According to Officer Trim, the dogs did not have tags on them, and a scan determined they had not been microchipped. The dogs owners have not come forward yet.
