A local police officer reportedly shot a pit bull dead after it tried to attack him and had already bitten a neighbor so hard, the bite broke the skin.
That's according to the Times-Leader Newspaper, which reports a Grifton police officer shot the pit bull Sunday.
The officer responded after the dog bit Madeline Barrow of Buckleberry Circle. The newspaper says the responding officer was talking to another neighbor, who called the dog, and as the officer backed away, the dog jumped on the officer's leg.
The times-leader says the dog died.
