Pit bull gets loose, accused of killing another dog

From Naples Daily News

A Fort Myers family is dealing with the loss of their dog Candy, after a pit bull attacked it on Friday evening.
According to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office report:
A woman and her grandson were sitting outside with Candy, when a neighbor’s pit bull approached them and began attacking their 10-year-old Pekingese.
As the pit bull attacked Candy, the woman and her grandson ran to another neighbor’s house.
The Pekingese took a bite to her midsection and defecated while she was being squeezed.
Candy’s abdomen was swollen and her hind legs were injured so badly she could not walk.
The owner said she was in obvious pain, but they did not have the money to take Candy to the vet and she died.
The pit bull’s owner states that his 3-year-old dog, named Tyson, was left in a kennel in his back yard and that it escaped while he was gone.
The kennel has a wooden floor and is enclosed with fencing. It appears the pit bull pushed part of the bottom of the fence to escape. The dog was in the house when deputies questioned the owner about the incident.
Animal control was notified. They issued tickets to each of the owners because neither dog was licensed or vaccinated.
