Pit bulls kill terrier on South Side



Published: Mon, September 12, 2011 @ 4:36 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

A 45-year-old South Side woman told police she helplessly watched two pitbull terrier dogs maul her family pet to death Sunday.

The Clearmont Avenue woman told police her family pet of 12 years “Good Buddy” was in her back yard at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday when the two dogs broke loose from a neighbors house and attacked her dog. She showed police the remains of the small black and white terrier.

Police went to a house in the 500 block of Clearmont and watched the two pitbulls running loose. Officers were unable to approach the house because of the loose dogs on the property.

Dave Nelson, Mahoning County Dog Warden’s office, said the dog warden is investigating the matter.

Imagine that a pit bull mauling another dogs..glad there were no small children in the backyard.
there is a pitbull ban in the city of youngstown?
Once again no one enforcing it until there is a horrific problem like this.
The dog wardens need to get off their duffs and start enforcing the law. they need to keep innocent pets and their owners safe from incidents like this. This poor woman must have been devastated to see her poor little dog torn to shreds by the pits.

Those pit bulls will get quarantined. They are vicious and highly aggressive / tempered...it could happen to humans next.
Awww...So very sad for "Good Buddy" the terrier. Heartfelt sympathies to the family who endured this horrific loss.
+ "Good Buddy" did not deserve to leave this way. +

let's hope they don't get the chance to hurt a human. that is unacceptable by anyone's standards
Obviously these are not responsible pit owners...

That's the best Ytown's finest could? Shoot the damn things. Ask questions later.
