Apr 17, 2010 Pit Bull Bites Min Pin in Two

GURNEE - A peaceful afternoon of fishing went terribly wrong Wednesday afternoon for Mike Pengilly, who saw his leashed, 8-pound miniature pinscher mauled to death by a loose pit bull in unincorporated Gurnee."He cut him in half. It was horrible," Pengilly said of the attack by the male pit bull, who belongs to a neighbor. "The cops couldn't do anything about it."
