Pit Bull Attacks Leave Neighbors Scared

Resident Don McDonald says "I have a granddaughter and I'm concerned about her and our little dog where I wasn't before." Resident Don McDonald says "I have a granddaughter and I'm concerned about her and our little dog where I wasn't before."

Two attacks on the same woman by the same pit bull. The incidents prompted some Canyon residents to take legal action against the dog owner, and Wednesday a decision was made.

We are told the attacks happened in the Sunday Canyon neighborhood. Dina Johnson says the first was back in December when she was walking her Dachsund. She says the pit bull was after her dog, and when it lunged for the dachsund several times, she tried to fight him off with her arm. That is when she says she was bitten. She says the same thing happened just a couple of weeks ago, only that time she had help fighting off the dog....from pepper spray.

Neighbors say these two attacks have left them terrified. Resident Don McDonald says "I have a granddaughter and I'm concerned about her and our little dog where I wasn't before."

Johnson took the dog owner to court, and this afternoon a Randall County Justice of the Peace ordered the owner to register the pit bull as a dangerous animal.  Among other things, that means the dog must wear a tag identifying him as dangerous and his home must have a beware of dog sign.
