On June 19, 2011, Uniontown PA police shot a pit bull twice to try to stop it from killing a mixed breed collie. As described in the Tribune-Review, the pit bull got loose and went after a man who had to jump into a truck to avoid injury. The pit bull then attacked a nearby dog that was chained. The police shot the pit bull twice in its shouders before the dog went to its own back porch and laid down. The pit bull owner later agreed to have the dog euthanized.
