The Hampton Animal Control Division is seeking the public’s assistance locating a vicious Pit Bull that may be in the Phoebus section of the City.
On October 10, 2012 Hampton Animal Control received a call in reference to two loose Pit Bulls in the 200 block of West Kelly Street. Upon their arrival they discovered that these two canines were responsible for a violent attack on another Pit Bull which resulted in its death. Animal Control Officers were able to capture one of the two vicious canines, but after an extensive search they lost sight of the second Pit Bull near the intersection of Old Buckroe Road and East Mercury Boulevard. Animal Control officers were able to verify that the male Pit Bull that was captured is extremely aggressive toward all other dogs. The owner of this dog has not been located.
The Animal Control Division is asking the public’s assistance in locating the second Pit Bull and identifying the owner of both canines. The suspect dog is described as a dark colored reddish-blue brindle marked female Pit Bull, approximately 40-45 lbs., possibly wearing light colored collar. This dog is aggressive toward other dogs and may be aggressive towards people. Residents are cautioned not to approach this canine if located and urged to contact the Hampton Animal Control Division immediately by calling 727-6111.
