Pit Bull Pair to be Euthanized This Week

Two pit bulls will soon be put down for attacking an elderly Lubbock man. Kevin Overstreet, Director of Animal Services, says the dogs will likely be euthanized by the end of the week.

The pit bulls attacked a 77 year-old man and his small dog last month, as he was taking out the trash. The victim suffered broken arm and puncture wound. His dog did not survive.

The City of Lubbock made the decision to destroy the dogs following a Dangerous Dog hearing last week. So far, the dogs' owners have not appealed the ruling.

The City may also present a criminal case against the dogs' owners to the Lubbock County District Attorney's office this week. They could face class C felony charges, punishable by up to ten years in prison.
