On Dec. 27, 2011, a rescued pit bull was euthanized after it attacked a chihuahua housed at a York County SPCA office.  The pit bull had been found walking the streets of York on Dec. 15 suffering from apparent dog fighting wounds.  The SPCA cared for the pit bull trying to restore its health.  While being walked by a SPCA staffer on 12/26, it launched an unprovoked attack on the tiny chihuahua.  Fortunately, the little dog was wearing a coat which helped prevent serious injuries.
