KENOSHA WI - A PIT BULL THAT HAD "NEVER ATTACKED BEFORE" BOUNDED OUT A FRONT DOOR AND LATCHED ON TO A PIT/BOXER MIX BEING WALKED BY ITS OWNER - THE OWNER WAS FORCED TO STAB AND KILL THE PIT TO END THE ATTACK
Bain Elementary School was briefly on lockdown Tuesday morning after police received a report of a man stabbing a dog.
Kenosha Police said Kenneth Carrier-Duncan, of Kenosha, was walking his dog, a male pit bull-boxer mix, on a leash in the 4000 block of 28th Avenue when a LOOSE FEMALE PIT BULL attacked Duncan’s dog.
The attacking dog reportedly bit the other dog numerous times on the neck and shoulder.
Despite numerous attempts, Katherine Tassi, owner of the attacking dog, could not get it away from the other dog.
Tassi reportedly told Duncan to “do what he had to do.” Duncan said he was sorry as he took out a knife and stabbed the attacking dog in the shoulder three times before it released Duncan’s dog.
The attacking dog died from stab wounds.
Tassi told police she was about to put a leash on her dog when it bounded out the front door and did not blame Duncan for defending his dog. She said her dog had never attacked before.
Both dog owners were referred for dog ordinance requirements and possible violations.
