Man shoots two pit bulls during attack; both die

A Northern California man shot two pit bulls during an attack Tuesday — killing one and injuring the second so severely it later had to be euthanized, authorities said.

The man heard his neighbor screaming for help, so he ran toward the Isleton home to find out what was happening, said Sgt. Lisa Bowman of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

That’s when he saw two pit bulls attacking his neighbor, Bowman said.

The neighbor apparently had tried to intervene as the dogs began attacking one another, but they turned and attacked him instead, the Sacramento Bee reported.

The man yelled at the dogs to stop, but they charged him, Bowman said.

Fearing for his safety, the man said, he shot the dogs.
