A Macon Police officer shot and killed a pit bulldog Monday evening as it was charging towards him. It happened on Clinton Road, near Shurling Drive.
One person had already been attacked by two pit bulls and had to be taken to the hospital after a bite severed an artery in his left arm. Witnesses rushed to his aid and tried to help control the bleeding. The victim was transported to the Medical Center of Central Georgia by EMS.
When the officer fired the shot, the second dog ran into the woods. The dogs' owner later found the dog. He was cited for having unrestrained animals and agreed to take the surviving dog to animal control to be quarantined and tested.
