DOG DUMPING: Warrants are being sought for a 28-year-old Battle Creek woman who Battle Creek police said Wednesday dumped TWO VICIOUS PIT BULL TERRIERS in a neighborhood.
Animal Control and police officers were called at 8:57 a.m. Feb. 26 to the first block of Hannah Street. A resident said she watched a woman stop her car and open the door and let out two dogs before driving away.
While the animal control officer was speaking to the witness, one of the dogs, a male, began to approach. Then the second dog, a female began to charge the officer and then both began to attack, trying to bite the officer. The officer had to use an asp and pepper spray to keep the dogs away.
Three police officers also responded and one of the dogs was caught but the second ran. Later that day the second dog was found and captured in a shed at Riverview Recreation Center at 1990 E. Columbia Ave. Both dogs were taken to the Calhoun County Animal Shelter.
Officials said the dogs are vicious and won't be placed for adoption. Charges are being brought against the woman for abandonment and allowing vicious dogs to run loose.
