SALINE COUNTY AR - NEIGHBORS SAY THEIR PETS ARE BEING ATTACKED AND KILLED BY A DOG OWNER THAT MOVED IN LAST YEAR WITH 2 PIT BULLS AND A BULLDOG MIX

A neighborhood in Saline County is on edge after they say their animals are being attacked by one man's dogs.
Neighbors say the problems began after the aggressive dog's owner moved in last winter.  Since then, one neighbor's dog has been killed and several others have been attacked.
People who live in the area say the three dogs are often together.  They believe two of them are PIT BULLS, and one of them is a BULLDOG MIX.
They've called the Saline County sheriff's department which has sent a deputy out to respond each time, but he says his hands are tied because of a no leash law. 
Steve Glover, whose dog suffered a broken jaw, says he's prepared to defend his Siberian husky or other neighbors' animals if it happens again.
"If the dogs come on my property and are aggressive toward a human, an animal or anything else, I have the right to kill it."
Glover has spent more than $750 in vet bills for his dog, Sitka.
So far five different families have filed complaints with the Saline County sheriff's department.

Damned irresponsible dog owners making another neighborhood a war zone.

So, law enforcement does nothing and neighbors began arming themselves against each other. Been there. There is no good solution for these people whose neighborhood has been invaded by a narcissistic nutter. There is no love or loyalty like that of a person with pits. To them, the only pet that matters is their own. I feel for these people. There is no solution. Except that anything can happen to a dog whose irresponsible owner allows it to run free. Sometimes they poison themselves by getting into someone's trash. Or get hit by a car. There was one in my neighborhood that got hit by a train. Or they just disappear... Anything can happen.

I would change the ordinance! No leash law? REALLY? Okay, how about running at large? Is there an ordinance for that? NO?

Sheriff, your hands are not tied, you just don't want to protect people and their pets. I mean, normal people and their normal pets. You're already doing a good job of protecting the nutter and her pit bulls.

@ Farmer Jane, I would make SURE that "anything" DID happen to that freaking pit.
