ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- A man stabbed a pit bull dog to death at Roseburg to save a dachshund it had in a deadly grip.
Brett Patton of Winston told KPIC (http://is.gd/dnUuIs ) he was playing disc golf with friends Tuesday when a friend's dachshund was attacked by a pit bull that broke its leash.
Six men tried to separate the animals, but when they realized the dachshund was being torn apart, Patton says he asked the pit bull's owner if he could kill it. He says she said yes.
Patton said he did what he had to do.
Police took the dachshund to Companion Animal Clinic with very serious injuries.
The pit bull owners told KPIC they did not give Patton permission to stab their dog.
