On Aug. 4, 2011, a pit bull attacked a police officer in Milville PA. As described on thedailyjournal.com, the cop was investigating a 911 call when the pit bull charged him and leaped on top of the officer. He was able to break free only after kicking and punching the pit bull. The pit bull attacked again and the officer fired a shot at the dog. Numerous citations regarding the PA Dog Law have been levied against the dog owner.
