Pit bull fatally shot by city police after attack on dog

chicagotribune.com
Chicago police fatally shot a pit bull and were searching for a second one Monday afternoon after the animals attacked a man walking his dog on the Northwest Side.

The incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of West Agatite Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood, Officer Tom Polick said. A man was walking his dog when two pit bulls attacked the smaller dog.

The man called 911 on his cell phone and police officers who responded fatally shot one of the pit bulls. The other pit bull ran away and authorities were looking for it Monday afternoon, said Cleophus Cavin, a supervisor with the Chicago Animal Care & Control Commission.

Authorities believe the pit bulls were strays, Cavin said. There were no reports of injuries to the officers or the man.
