May 04, 2005 Arlington Heights Pit Bull Kills Yorkie at Petsmart

Arlington Heights - A yorkshire terrier puppy was killed in a Petsmart.  Both dogs were waiting in line to got to the in-store vet clinic.  When the pit bull owner handed the leash to a store employee, the pit bull got loose and immediately ran to Pastina, a yorkshire terrier puppy grabbed it in its jaws, shook the little dog, immediately killing her.

Petsmart was very emphatic that they were not responsible at all for allowing pit bulls into their stores, but they did give the woman $1,200.
