SOUTH LYON, OAKLAND COUNTY MI - A PIT BULL ATTACKED ITS OWNER - A SMALLER DOG IN THE HOME REACTED TO THE ATTACK AND THE PIT THEN KILLED IT

A PIT BULL was removed from a S. Ridge Street home in South Lyon after it bit its owner and killed a pomeranian at the home.
South Lyon Police were called to the home Saturday just before 5 p.m. by the 23-year-old owner, who told officers the dog attacked him, biting the man in the leg. The man’s other dog, a pomeranian, apparently lunged at the pit bull in response. The pit bull bit the other dog in the neck, killing it instantly, a report stated.
The man secured the pit bull in the back yard and called police, telling them to kill or remove the dog. The man said he adopted the dog in February. The animal reportedly had multiple bite mark scars and what appeared to be two bullet holes.
Oakland County Animal Control was called to pick up the dog, and several police from South Lyon and the Lyon Township sheriff’s substation to help remove the dog. The report stated the dog repeatedly charged officers, barked and growled. A sheriff’s deputy tased the dog, but it broke free from the wires. Eventually the dog was secured with snare poles and caged in a deputy’s vehicle.
The dog was to be euthanized.

Nah, it won't be euthanized. It'll be renamed and rehomed as safe (just not in a home with small dogs) by the same shelter that declared it safe in the first place. They don't they tell us which shelter that was?

Never trust a shelter's evaluation of any pit bull type or Rottweiler type.

I think reporters got the story wrong! The Pomeranian was attacking the owner, and the pit bull lunged at the Pomeranian, and the Pom killed the pit bull. The police had to subdue the Pom, and removed it from the property, and it will be euthanized. The Pom had bullet scars, and you could tell it was used as a bait dog. Shelters are irresponsible for adopting out dangerous Pomeranians. The media is irresponsible for covering up the true breed involved in this attack. Lastly, the breeders of dangerous Pomeranians are to blame.

That's disappointing that they didn't kill it in the back yard. Now some POS rescue group is going to start a FB page to save the thing and they'll make some money and probably be successful.
