Pit Bull attacks dog

A witness to last Thursday night’s dog attack at Springfield Road and Wilkinson Street has come forward with his recollection of events.

Josh Barltrop said he was ready to turn on to Wilkinson Street when a lady walking her dog hit the crosswalk button to cross Springfield.

“She was about halfway across the street and that pit bull just ran out of nowhere and straight across the street,” said Barltrop.

“It wasn’t like he was sniffing on the grass…he was on a mission.”

Barltrop said the incident lasted for a couple of minutes.

“It took a few moments, but the guy, the owner of the pit bull, came running across the street. He was trying to get his dog off.

She also tried to get her dog away. She kind of got her dog in the clear a couple of times then they got at it again.”

From what he saw Barltrop said it appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

“Even if the little guy started to bark or something in the beginning he had every right to because this other dog just came running across the street straight at him.”
