Jun 08, 2016 Batavia Pit Bull Shot by Police; Loose and Aggressive

Batavia - A black and white pit bull was loose and when a police officer attempted to leash it, it began repeatedly aggressively charging at the officer.  When the officer approached, the pit bull became aggressive and charged the officer several times before knocking the officer down. The officer shot the aggressive pit bull in the side in self defense.
Batavia Doesn't Need Aggressive Pit Bulls
The pit bull ran away and attacked a leashed labrador it encountered. The pit bull is expected to survive. The owner, JENNIFER ATKINSON, was located and ticketed. The same pit bull had bitten a person in April 2015.
