Pit Bull Attack - Shot by Deputy

Spartanburg County Deputy shot a pit bull after attacking two people. Around 10:30 a.m. at Fuller Road a man's pit bull chased two women back to the car, the owner drag the dog back into the yard. But when the women got out of the car, the dog bit one of them on the arm. When the man try to restrain the dog, it bit him on the face and latched onto his arm.

To respond, Deputy Ryan Miller arrived at home and found the dog's owner bleeding and holding the animal down. The owner pinned the dog down, but the dog broke free and latched onto the man's arm. At that point the deputy shot the dog once through the chest, but the dog continued its hold. A second bullet killed the animal, which, even in death, was still clamping the man's arm.

Miller stated that he asked Spartanburg County animal control several times to come to the scene to assist during the incident, but animal control refused until ordered to go by a sergeant after the dog was dead. They will now review department policy on responding to dog bites. On the other hand, the animal was taken for testing for rabies.
