Man shoots Pit Bulls who were attacking his dog

A 26-year-old man shot three Pit Bulls who were allegedly attacking his dog, killing two, Thursday afternoon.

The incident occurred around 12:30 p.m. in the 5100 block of Pritchard Drive.

According to Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman John Fortunato, the man said that his girlfriend alerted him to the fact that their dog was being attacked by other dogs and he went into his rear yard and found three Pit Bulls mauling his pet.

Fortunato said the suspect told officers that he tried to chase the dogs away, but when that didn’t work, he shot his gun at them, killing two of the dogs and causing the other one to flee.

The resident retrieved his injured Terrier and transported it to a local veterinarian for treatment.

No charges were filed against the resident involved.
