Mothers take matters into their own hands after Pit bull attacks

By Andrea Blanford, WNCT

Some parents in the east are taking matters into their own hands after their children were attacked by the same Pit bull.
The first attack was three weeks ago at Sonona Jefferson's house in Williamston.
Police say the neighbor's Pit bull got out of its fence and attacked Michelle Mitchell's 12 year-old-son.
Thursday, less than two weeks after Animal Control returned the dog back to its owner, they say the same dog bit Jefferson's 8-year-old son on the leg.  
"I'm not here to point fingers or to blame. I simply want my children and all other children to walk in this community safely without fear of another dog attack," Sonona Jefferson, victim's mother.
Jefferson and Mitchell took their concerns to the Williamston Police Department.
Police issued the owner a citation for violating the town's animal ordinance for not keeping the dog in a secure enclosure.

The owner relinquished the dog to animal control and it will be put down in two weeks.
