A dog was quarantined Wednesday after it attacked two other dogs and killed one of them in Daytona Beach.
Animal control officials said the attack happened when a woman was pushing her son in a stroller and walking her two dogs on South Halifax Drive.
Bill Thomas, who lives nearby, said he heard screams, barking and yelling so he rushed outside to help the woman and her baby.
The woman said that as she was walking, a gray PIT BULL came charging toward her. She grabbed her 6-month-old son out of his stroller and ran away.
The woman said the dog attacked her two small dachshunds, killing one and badly injuring the other.
As the mother and her daughter escaped the scene, Thomas said he grabbed the dog by its collar while another neighbor attempted to free the small dog from the animal’s jaw.
Daytona Beach police took the pit bull to Halifax Humane Society where it will be quarantined for 10 days. Officials said they have not been able to reach the dog’s owners to find out if it is up on its shots.
The woman and her baby were not injured.
Police said they were called the same address last October about the same dog. Workers in the area were worried the dog would jump a fence.
