Police Kill Pit Bull After Attack In Lima


Lima police were forced to shoot and kill a pit bull Friday night. The Lima News reports the incident happened after the dog jumped out of a window of a home in the 300 block of S. McDonel St. and attempted to attack a family walking by. The dog then turned its attention to a 9-year-old boy, who was able to avoid being bitten by using his bike as a shield. Police were able to distract the dog, and when it charged them it was shot and killed.
The dog's owner, 34-year-old Shalitta Cole, was arrested. She faces charges related to harboring a vicious animal and improper confinement. 26-year-old Matthew Cole, who kept the dog from attacking his children as they were walking by, suffered bites and scrapes and was treated at St. Rita's Medical Center.
