This tragic local tale has been reported on Facebook this past weekend:
“Two pit bulls attacked my little Scooter and then me while we were walking today,” local Jeannie Wood posted on Facebook on Saturday. “Very scary experience. I was trying to save him, and my hand was bitten so I have a broken finger, but I’m OK. I’m on antibiotics and pain meds. Scooter is scheduled to go into surgery momentarily.
Jeannie filed a police report, and animal control quarantined the dogs that attacked Scooter. “Dogs were in their yard, not leashed and came charging at Scooter and me when we walked by,” Jeannie said.
Dozens of locals weighed in with their support. “What is the word on Scooter?” one said.
On Monday, Jeannie offered an update: “He died this morning at 6:39 a.m. Poor little boy fought hard. Injuries were just too severe. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.”
Dozens of locals have sent their condolences. To dog lovers like us, it is an unimaginable experience — but it seems to happen all too often.
