It chased another dog across the street, according to Moore.
Keith Smoode and a friend attempted to stop the pit bull while it was attacking Smoode’s dog. When they tried to pull the pit bull off the other dog, the collar broke, Moore said.
Even when they tried to hit the pit bull, it wouldn’t stop its attack, Moore said. Finally, they stabbed the pit bull with a knife to end the attack, he said.
The pit bull died and the other dog, which was a German Shepherd mix, was taken to the veterinarian and is expected to live, Moore said.
