Sep 26, 2014 Chicago Police K9 Officer Attacked by Two Pit Bulls

Chicago - An off-duty police officer taking his K9 for a walk in the park had his K9, Ditto, severely mauled by two pit bulls that escaped from their owners grasp.  A good samaritan helped stop the attack by dousing the pit bulls snouts with cinnamon powder and then putting a pit bull in a headlock while the police officer entered a fenced tennis court to get his severely injured dog to safety.

 Ditto is expected to survive after surgery.  The police are questioning the pit bull owner.

Pit bulls maul and kill many pets in Chicago, but the news outlets rarely report on it.
