On Feb. 10, 2012, a St. Bernard was running loose in Whitemarsh Township when it attacked and killed a 9 year-old Maltese which was being walked on its leash by its owner.  Whitemarsh Township Police investigated this unprovoked attack.

It is expected that the dog owner will be cited for a violation of the PA Dog Law for failure to confine the Saint Bernard.  The Maltese’s owner suffered some scrapes and abrasions when she tried to save her little dog.
