Pit bull kills one dog, attacks another in Carlisle; owner vows it won’t happen again, police say | PennLive.com

Wally Shank was walking his dog in Thornwald Park in Carlisle, when a pit bull suddenly attacked his 13-year-old cocker spaniel Friday morning.

Shank said he fell to the ground amid the tussle and got the dog away, but again, it attacked. As he rose to his feet, he gave the dog a good kick to the shoulder and it whimpered and ran away.

Thankfully, Shank’s dog was OK, but it had a circle of blood on it. It wasn’t the cocker’s spaniel’s blood. It came from a miniature dachshund the pit bull killed just before attacking Shank’s dog around 8:30 a.m.

As Shank and a friend walked out of the park, they encountered Sieglinde and William Smith, who were crying and carrying their miniature dachshund, Schatzie, who was clinging to life. The couple, who live on nearby Noble Boulevard, rushed the 12-pound dog to the veterinarian, but nothing could be done. Schatzie died just short of making it to her second birthday.

Sieglinde Smith, 73, bought Schatzie for her husband on his 80th birthday.

Schatzie’s death “isn’t the only thing that’s worrying us. What if it gets loose again and goes to the park? There are children playing over there,” Sieglinde Smith said.

“I want the dog put down,” William Smith said. “It’s a killing machine.”
