Pit Bulldogs Kill Woman’s Maltese Poodle

Two pit bulldogs are being blamed for the death of a Maltese Poodle belonging to Trina Johnson, of Fourth Street, according to a Summerville Police report.

Johnson found her pet lying dead on her property and a pit bulldog standing over it. That pit bulldog and another one allegedly belonged to a neighbor, according to reports.

“When [I] arrived, the two bulldogs were laying on the carport unrestrained. The bulldogs did not show any signs of a struggle and did not have any marks or blood on them,” Officer Roy Williams said.

The neighbor said he does not think his bulldogs killed the poodle, according to a report.

“[I] had no evidence or witnesses that the bulldogs killed complainant’s dog a the time of the report,” Officer Williams said.

The officer advised the neighbor about the leash law and told Johnson she could seek the magistrate court’s help.

    Headline is misleading and untrue at this point. This isn’t National Enquirer and I and the public need to be able to not be mislead. According to story at this point, pits have not been confirmed of killing Maltese. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? I am not on either side, just want truths all the way around.

    @ Melissa The question should be what have the pitbulls lost on some one else’s property? If she had wanted to that lady had every right to shoot the pits after they had done that to her little dog. Just let me catch some mean dog or what ever in my yard jumping on or even attempting to jump on my little Lindsey and I will make short work of it.
