Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Authorities are still searching for two pit bulls who are responsible for
a vicious animal
attack. According to the San Diego Humane Society, two pit bulls are responsible
for mauling a family horse to death over the weekend. Authorities have
still not been able to locate the animals days after the attack. Officials
say the dog attack happened this past Saturday around 9 p.m. in the Woodland
Parkway area. A resident heard the attack located just off Fulton Road
in San Marcos.
The resident said the dogs viciously attacked their beloved horse, Smokey,
despite his attempts to beat the dogs off. The horse died from injuries
sustained in the assault. The horrific scene was devastating for the family.
Neighbors gathered to support the family after the tragic and preventable
attack. The horse was a beloved animal of many and was an extra in many
films such as Back to the Future 3.
The dogs were tracked to their owner using a microchip. The owner was contacted
and came to pick up the dog from the San Diego Humane Society. The dogs
have since escaped and are now on the loose. The community is extremely
concerned that the dogs are loose again and are frustrate over the negligence
of officials and the dogs’ owner. A spokesperson for the San Diego
Humane Society said officers are searching for the dogs. Anyone with information
on the whereabouts of the dogs are asked to call the San Diego Humane
Society’s Humane Law Enforcement division.
