Orland Park police are investigating a dogfight last week that led to a local man fatally shooting his neighbor's pit bull.
The homeowner told police that he shot the dog, killing it, after it attacked his yellow Labrador retriever in the backyard of his house in the 16600 block of Robinhood Drive, police said. The Labrador was taken to a veterinarian where it had a neck wound and a paw sutured to stop the bleeding, police said.
Notice the Tribune calls this a dogfight. It was not. This was a marauding fighting dog that attacked a normal dog on its own property.
