We hate these stories because it often leaves other pit bulls homeless, when in fact it’s probably the owner’s fault for not leashing one:
Mamaroneck Village Police say a 75 year old woman was walking her small dog on Florence Street Sept. 26 when the dog was attacked by a “pit bull type dog that was loose and unleashed.”
The woman tried to separate the dogs and was injured on the hands, including losing the tip of one finger. Her dog was killed.
Police say the pit bull and owner reside on Jensen Avenue. The owner of the pit bull was charged under the Agriculture and Market Law with 1 count of dangerous dog attack on domestic animal (a violation) and is due in Village of Mamaroneck court Tuesday.
