                   WELL, IT SOUNDS LIKE PITS TO ME !!!!!!
LEXINGTON, S.C. (WACH)-- The County of Lexington Animal Control officers are investigating a fatal dog attack in which two family pets were killed by several dogs belonging to a neighbor Monday evening.
Animal Control arrived at a home on the 3000 block of Wessinger Road just after 7:30 p.m. in reference to an attack after a homeowner stated that several dogs entered his home through a "doggy door" and killed his two dogs.
The homeowner, who was not at home at the time of the attacked, informed officers that the  neighbor's dogs were inside his home and were acting in an aggressive nature making it impossible for him to enter his own home.
The County's on-call Animal Control Officer entered the home and attempted to remove the neighbor's dogs with a catch pole but was unsuccessful. Shortly after, the owner of the dogs arrived on scene and was able to successfully remove the dogs from the home.
Officers from the County of Lexington Animal Services and Lexington County Sheriff's Department assisted with the burial of one of the homeowner's dogs as the Animal Control Officer took the second deceased dog back to the animal shelter for burial.
Upon investigation, Animal Control Officers obtained a search warrant through the courts and seized 10 dogs from 42-year-old Ryan Ezzell's home Tuesday afternoon.
Animal control issued over a dozen citations to Ezzell. Six of those citations were for violation of restraint and confinement and the remaining 10 citations were for failure to show proof of rabies inoculation. 
Ezzell will appear in court on Jan. 16 to face the charges.
All of the dogs will be held at the County's Animal Shelter pending the adjudication of the case.


Chapin, S.C. (WACH) -- Lexington County Animal Control officers have now seized 10 dogs belonging to a Chapin man, after six of them reportedly attacked and killed two others belonging to a neighbor.

Joy Lee, the owner of the slain dogs, says her husband knew something was wrong when the two dogs didn't greet him when he came home from work Monday afternoon.

"And then he saw a strange dog stick his head through our doggie door," said Lee. "Two dogs came out of the doggie door toward him trying to attack him and then he had to jump in the truck to stop them from attacking him."

Joy says after her husband called the police at a neighbor's house before returning home, meeting the Lexington County Sheriff's Department and Animal Control on site.  

Joy says 6 dogs were in the house, and that her husband found both of the dogs -- Bo, a 1-year-old Irish Setter and Gracie, a 3-year-old English Setter-- dead in their own home.  One was found in the middle of the living floor.

A member of Animal Control and an officer with Lexington County helped bury one of the dogs.

The six dogs reported to be behind the attack were seized Tuesday afternoon, along with four others. The owner, 42-year-old Ryan Ezzell, was issued 16 citations; six for violation of restraint and confinement and 10 for failure to show proof of rabies inoculation.

Ezzell is due in court on January 16.

My heart is broken reading about two beautiful dogs brutally killed IN THEIR OWN HOME!

Pit bulls are ugly animals, it takes a seriously deranged person to think they are anything but. What pit bulls do is even more despicable.

The way things are now, there are no rules. The pit bull advocates don't want to be held to higher standards for their breed. Therefore, we have packs of pit bulls running rampant, and killing everything in sight. I so wish I could return the favor and kill every pit bull I see; for no good reason, without provocation, and just because the pit bull happens to be in my vicinity. In reality, that is exactly what is happening, only the pit bulls are not getting slaughtered, they are the ones on a killing rampage.

So true! Sounds like pits to me too. 10 dogs removed? Typical Pitbull breeding fashion. They are lethal at 7 months. Such a discusting mutant devil breed.
