Woodstock - Two pit bulls attacked a lab and a poodle in separate attacks on July 11 in rural Woodstock. In the first incident, the pit bulls allegedly attacked a Labrador retriever. A passerby found the injured Labrador lying in the ditch next to the road, one neighbor reported. The dog was taken to an emergency animal hospital in Crystal Lake for treatment.
Later in the day, the same two pit bulls allegedly attacked a small poodle further down the road. The homeowner shot one of the attacking pit bulls, authorities said. The poodle and the injured pit bull were taken to an emergency animal hospital in Crystal Lake for treatment. The whereabouts of the second pit bull is unknown.
Animal Control spokesperson Debra Quackenbush said the injured pit bull was eventually transferred into Animal Control’s care, and the dog later died. Quackenbush said the dog succumbed to injuries it sustained while fighting with the poodle and not from a gunshot wound.
