Leash law violation, 1717 Ashton Drive

An Ashton Drive woman told police two pit bulls entered her yard and attacked her dog. When she yelled at them, they ran away. Officers reported the pit bulls may have climbed a fence to get into the yard.
Police contacted the pit bulls’ owner, who said he did not know where his dogs were because they were “running around loose.”  
The officer said he called animal control and was told the department already had received numerous complaints about two loose pit bulls.
The officer said he checked with the woman and the dogs’ owner the next day. The woman identified one of the pit bulls that attacked her dog, but the owner said the second pit bull hadn’t returned.
The woman told police her dog had to have 10 stitches and two puncture wounds treated. The vet bill was about $250, the woman said. The pit bulls’ owner was advised to find the missing pit bull, and was cited for having a vicious dog and violating the leash law.
