Marion - A pit bull escaped its home, invaded a neighbor's back yard and mauled a small dog named Little D so severely that police officer had to use his weapon to put Little D out of his misery.
Family members said the little dog was was so badly mauled that it was unrecognizable as a dog.
The pit bull has been loose before and the neighborhood is on edge because animal control may return the pit bull to the irresponsible owner after a 10 day quarantine.
