On April 25, 2012, two pit bulls that were running loose in Philadelphia attacked a dog owned by an off-duty Philadelphia police officer. As described on abclocal.go.com, 2 brown colored pit bulls came into a park out of nowhere and attacked the innocent dog.

A bystander flagged down an on-duty cop to deal with the Philadelphia pit bull attack. The pitbulls charged the officer. He shot 1 of the pit bulls 3 times before it finally went down. The other pit bull escaped. They have identified the owner of the pit bulls. PA Dog Law charges are expected.
