SHEFFIELD AL - 3 PIT BULL ATTACKS RILE NEIGHBORS IN SHEFFIELD

July 21, 2009 -  Kenny Price, Colbert Co Animal Control Officer is investigating several attacks on small pets on Lakewood Dr.  Sheffield Police Officers  trailed the offending pit bulls to a residence,  and neighbors believe the bulldogs belong to a neighor who owns 6 dogs.  One families Chihuahua /Maltese mix was found hardly anything left of him,  Another neighbor's Jack Russell Terrier was mauled, and there was an attack about a year ago.  The pit bulls actually came up on a deck to get one of the pets!  One attack cost the family $750, another $315, and another $300.

Price said Sheffield passed a Vicious Dog Ordinance Monday that goes into effect within five days.  He said the City only allows 3 dogs at a residence and the owner of the 6 pit bulls does not have city license for them. The owner says his dogs have shock-collar fencing to prevent them from getting off property, but Price says that isn't always effective.  "The neighborhood is very upset about this situation ," Price said.
