Pit Bull Attacks Greyhounds

insidebayarea.com
On Friday, a loose pit bull attempted to break through the window of a house to attack another dog, Schick said, adding the other dog was cut from the glass.

Schick said she’s aware of some other recent incidents involving pit bulls. In one, about a month ago, a woman was walking her two greyhounds when a pit bull suddenly charged toward her, Schick said.

The dog, which the woman recognized as a neighborhood pet that would frequently bang against a fence to get out of its yard, bit the woman’s female greyhound and severely wounded the male greyhound when it tried to intercede,Schick said.

A nearby postal worker finally sprayed the canine with dog mace to end the attack, Schick said.

The woman’s male greyhound had to be euthanized because of its injuries, Schick said.

Schick said pit bulls can be affectionate pets and noted that other breeds of dogs can bite, too. But it is unclear why pit bulls seem to act the way they do, she said.

“What’s causing the issue with these dogs? There seems to be no answer,” she said.
