LINCOLN COUNTY MS - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL AND GERMAN SHEPHERD CAME INTO THE DAVIS' YARD AND PUSHED THROUGH A LOCKED GATE TO KILL16 OF THEIR 36 RESCUED CATS
When Lincoln County pet rescuer, Belinda "Dinki" Davis, drove home from her restaurant last week to check on her rescued pets she keeps in two covered and fenced kennels in her backyard, what she found has left her so traumatized she hasn't been able to go into her back yard.
Two of her neighbor's dogs, a GERMAN SHEPHERD and a PIT BULL, were in her yard and had broken through the padlocked gate to enter one of the kennels and mauled to death 16 of her 36 cats.
Lincoln County does not have a leash law but does have a vicious dog ordinance. When a deputy arrived the dogs were still inside the pen and the bulldog came toward the deputy growling with its hair raised. The deputy explained to the owner of the dogs that they had to be kept put up and that he would contact Lincoln County Justice Court.
