Pit bull kills small dog in Salem back yard



SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A 50-pound pit bull dog attacked and killed a small dog in an unfenced back yard Wednesday night in Salem.

Police say the small dog’s owner suffered a bite wound on her hand, trying to save her pet.

She said the pit bull ran into her back yard, bit the small dog on the head and began shaking it.

The pit bull was later captured and taken to Marion County Dog Control. Officers went door-to-door in the neighborhood but they did not find the owner. The pit bull was wearing a collar, but no tags.
