Woman Tries To Save Yorkie Poo From Pitbull Attack


A Swissvale woman talked to Channel 4 Action News after her yorkie poo was attacked and killed by two pitbulls on Wednesday morning.
Georgine Saccamango said she brought her puppy, Lily, with her when she took out her trash and tied her to her chain, when suddenly two large pitbulls came dodging towards them.
"The minute I opened the gate they were just right there. They just chewed my dog up, that's all, and he was so little. He wasn't even 4 pounds," said Saccamango.
Saccamango said Lily got caught on her chain and she tried to let her loose but one of the pitbulls grabbed Lily by the stomach and pulled.
Saccamango tried to fight back, but the pitbull dragged her away until Lily hardly had a breath left in her tiny body.
Police said they were aware that the two pitbulls broke loose that morning and were already at the scene at this point.
"Police had their guns drawn but, what could they do. It was too late then," said Saccramango.
Lily was still breathing when Saccamango took her to the hospital but she didn't make it much longer.
Police told Saccamango that the dogs would be quarantined for ten days and the owners would be fined for letting them off their leashes.
Saccamango said she is still decided whether or not to press charges.
