Pit bull attacks carriage horse in Sacramento
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KFSN) -- In Sacramento, police shot and killed a pit bull after it attacked a horse pulling a carriage Tuesday afternoon.
Witnesses say the dog went into a frenzy, biting the horse's neck and legs. A good Samaritan stepped in and started kicking the pit bull until it let go. He then pinned it down until officers arrived.
Police say they were forced to shoot the dog because they were afraid it might get loose and hurt somebody.
The horse's owner says the horse suffered punctures and abrasions but is doing well.
