Breaking: Police In Holland KIll Dog After It Attacks Woman, Then Set its Eyes On Officers
According to WZZM 13, police shot two dogs in Holland (killing one) after they attacked a woman in her own backyard, and subsequently, one of the dogs attempted to attack an Ottawa County Sheriff's Deputy.
"Police shot two dogs, killing one, after they attacked a woman around 9 a.m. Friday at a home in the 2300 block of Brickyard Lane.
Police say the 61-year-old woman and her small dog were in a fenced backyard when two larger dogs rushed in. The woman tried to protect her pet and the dogs began attacking her.
Officers describe the aggressive dogs as a "pit bull variety."
During the attack, a neighbor tried to intervene and sprayed the pit bulls with a garden hose, but they continued to be aggressive, officers said.
A Zeeland police officer was called to the scene and fired a shot, hitting one of the dogs. Both dogs ran off, but one returned and charged an Ottawa County Sheriff's deputy. That dog was shot and killed; the injured dog was captured by animal control officers."
