Police: Man Collapses After Seeing Pit Bulls Attack Horse


Two pit bulls are being held by Animal Care and Control after police said they attacked a horse.
Mint Hill police officers were dispatched to Dan Hood Road on Tuesday because a caller said the dogs were attacking a horse that was in a fenced pasture.
Police said they were called to the same home on Jan. 22 because the two dogs were attacking the horse, but the owners were allowed to keep the dogs on the condition that they secure them.
After officers arrived on Tuesday, they said 63-year-old Bill Williamson, who had called to make the complaint, collapsed. His sons told police Williamson had prior heart problems.Williamson regained consciousness after officers started CPR and then shocked him with AED pads, police said. He was taken to a hospital for further treatment and later released.
The dogs were captured by Animal Care and Control officers and are being held at the facility. The owners have put in a petition to get the dogs back, so there will be a hearing regarding the issue, police said.
The horse was not hurt badly in the attack, according to police.
