Pit bull gets loose, kills chihuahua


BOARDMAN — A Boardman woman owes $250 in fines after her dog got loose and killed her neighbor’s chihuahua.

Sandra Braxton, 56, of Shadyside Drive, received a citation for failing to control and restrain her dog, according to a police report.

Braxton alerted police Sunday afternoon when she realized what happened.

She told officers her dog, which is a pit bull mix, escaped a fenced-in area in her back yard.

The reporting officer said he did not observe any areas where the fence had been damaged but the dog could have escaped under a door in the fence.
