THE 44-year-old owner of a potentially dangerous Pit Bull Terrier has been charged with damages and crimes against general interests and public order, after his dog snatched a Yorkshire Terrier from the arms of its owner. The events took place when two women were walking the little dog in Malaga city and noticed the other dog, loose and without a muzzle, with its owner on the other side of the road.
It began to run towards them and the owner of the Yorshire Terrier picked her dog up to prevent it from being hurt. The owner of the Pit Bull told the women to keep calm because his dog just wanted to play.
But it then jumped up, grabbed the smaller dog in its jaws and began to shake it. It would not let go, even when the owner hit it with its muzzle. It finally left the dog, dying, on the pavement. The owner took it to a vet but the dog died. She then reported the event to the Local Police who found a dog fitting the description at the local animal centre.
