Pit Bull To Be Killed After Biting Kids At Chesterfield Bus Stop

May 23, 2012 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

Chesterfield, VA – May 22 – Officials agreed to put a pit bull down after it showed signs of aggression and bit multiple children at a local bus stop.

The decision came about after the pit bull attacked several children at the intersection of Tracker Drive and Poachers Run about two weeks ago, reports NBC12.com.

The dog was quarantined at the time of the attack because it wasn’t up-to-date on its rabies vaccines.

Meagan Smith, one of the victims of the attack, said she was terrified when it happened.

According to Charlotte Smith, Meagan’s mother, she was also worried about contracting rabies after the incident.

The dog was quarantined for 10 days after the attack to make sure it did not have rabies.

Officials attempted to work with the dog to see if it could be rehabilitated but determined it should be put down after it showed signs of aggression to other dogs and people.

The dog’s owner received a summons because the pit bull was unregistered, off a leash, and behind on its vaccines.

It has not yet been determined when the dog will be put down. It will remain in quarantine for now.
