The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is on the lookout for a woman who is the owner of two pit bulls that are accused of mauling a person and two other dogs at a dog park last Friday. A 20-year-old man was attacked after picking up his dog at the park. The dog also attacked a Doberman that is a retired show dog. The man received minor wounds, while the other dog received wounds ranging from puncture wounds to throat damage.
Thursday in Charlotte County, a deputy responded to a call from someone saying he was being held captive in his truck by three loose and aggressive pit bulls. When the deputy arrived, the dogs were leaving the caller’s yard and entering the adjacent fenced in property. Two of the three dogs acted aggressively toward the deputy, causing the deputy to shoot them, non-fatally. All three were eventually gathered up by animal control and the two that were shot were treated by a veterinarian.
