An Orion Township man shot and killed a dog, saying it was attacking his dog.
Oakland County sheriff’s deputies reported that the dog, described as a pit bull, was running loose in his neighborhood on Crediton Street Friday night when it attacked his dog through his fence. He said he initially fired a couple shots into the air with his shotgun to try and scare the dog away. When the dog would not leave, deputies report that the man then shot the dog twice.
