March 25, 6 p.m. – RHPD Officer Tiffany Christian responded to a Parkside address in reference to a dog attack. Upon arrival she was told by the complainant that when she returned home that day her neighbor told her, that his pit bull had broken through the wooden fence and attacked and killed her Yorkie. The woman said she then went inside her house to check on her other dog and found it on the kitchen floor shaking and bleeding.
The neighbor said that when he discovered the incident about 10:45 a.m. he put his dog inside his house, covered the hole in the fence, as he had two other pit bulls; wrapped the deceased dog in a towel and took his dog to Richmond Hill Animal Hospital to have it euthanized. The man also agreed to pay for medical bills and cremation of the two dogs his pit bull attacked. Both parties indicated there were no hard feelings and to handle the financial aspect civilly. RHPD
