People in Pennsylvania love their dogs. Dogs are often spoiled and treated as if they are members of the family. Some dogs provide a valuable service, protect our property or offer companionship. In the blink of an eye, however, any dog may become aggressive and even attack without warning. Animal bites can be painful, cause lifelong injury or even end in death.
Recently, police responded to a report that a large dog was attacking a smaller dog. Police say the large dog appeared to be a pit bull. The incident attracted a crowd of people that police had to clear away. In order to force the dog to release the smaller animal, police fired a shot. The wounded dog released its victim, but then it lunged at its 33-year-old owner.
