Aggressive dog shot dead in St. Pete


A pair of dogs on the loose created a scary situation Friday night in a St. Petersburg neighborhood.
The incident ended just after 8 pm when an officer with the St. Petersburg Police Department was forced to shoot one of the canines after it attacked a Pinellas County Animal Services worker.
According to a St. Petersburg Police Department report an officer was dispatched to 2165 Country Club Court North in response to an aggressive animal call. The person who called told the officer the two ‘pit bulls’ followed her dog into their fenced in yard.
The dogs grew increasingly more aggressive and were corralled into the porch area of the residence until Animal Services arrived.
When the officer approached the dogs they attacked him, causing serious injuries to both of his arms.
The SPPD officer shot and killed one of the dogs and the other was quickly captured. The owner of the two animals has not yet been established as the investigation continues.
