TAPD officer rescues family pet from pit bull attack

A Texarkana Arkansas police officer Monday was forced to shoot and kill a dog after it attacked another dog

A Texarkana Arkansas police officer Monday was forced to shoot and kill a dog after it attacked another dog.

 

It happened in the 1000 block of Draughn Street in Texarkana, Ark., after two pit bulls got away from their home.

 

One of the pit bulls attacked a beagle that was on a leash in its owner’s yard. The police officer first used pepper spray and tried to physically pull the pit bull off the beagle using his baton, but when that didn’t work; he pulled out his gun and shot the pit bull, killing him.  

 

Beagle owner, Christina Anzaldua, immediately took her dog – two-year-old Tucker – to the veterinarian with what could have been life-threatening injuries. Tucker, however, pulled through and will be fine.

 

Anzaldua said she has been contacted by the owner of the pit bulls, who “felt terrible” about the incident, and offered to pay all veteran bills. The second pit bull was not involved, and has been returned to its owner....Reported by Ty Wilson
