Connecticut: At the sight of a cat, owner claims his Pit Bull "somehow" broke through its fence then mauled the first animal it came across

CONNECTICUT -- The Windsor Locks Police Department say they are investigating after a dog got loose from a yard, and attacked another dog.

Police say they responded to Thomas Street and found a dog owner comforting their 7-1/2-year-old dog which had been attacked by a pit bull mix. Another person from next door was holding onto a 2-year-old white and tan pit bull mix.

The pit bull owner said he was home on Reed Avenue and let his dog outside in the fenced backyard. The pit bull saw a cat and gave chase, breaking through the fence and ran after the cat.

The pit bull then ran up to two people walking their dogs and began to attack one of the two dogs. The Pit Bull owner finally arrived and dragged his mauler off the victim dog.

Police investigated and quarantined the pit bull (and will probably hand the dog right back to him). Both dogs are registered and all owners were identified.

Police also say that the incident is under investigation and not related to the
previous pit bull attack on Spring Street.
