Evanston Police were forced to kill an unleashed pitbull after it attached an older woman as she walked her dog.
On October 18th, an Evanston resident in her 70s was walking her Labrador retriever mix dog in the 1100 block of Oak Avenue. About 3 p.m., an apparently stray pit bull dog came up to the woman and her dog and began fighting with the Labrador. When the police arrived the pit bull had cornered the Labrador in a vestibule and was still on the attack.
Police shot at the pit bull to stop the attack which killed the dog. The Labrador suffered bites to its neck, back, legs and shoulders. The owner of the Labrador was bitten multiple times in the leg when she tried to separate the animals.
The owner of the pit bull was found to be living in the area of Dempster and Dodge Avenue. She is expected to be cited for allowing the animal to run off of its leash and not having a city dog license.
