Just seven days prior, two pit bulls in Abington were euthanized following an attack during which one of the dogs was shot by police.
Warrington police said the latest incident happened in the 800 block of Warrington Avenue. The animal was attacking a man, causing "bleeding injuries."
Residents tried multiple times to stop the attack but they were unsuccessful, police said. One person, fearing for the victim's life, then shot the dog several times.
An investigation is being conducted by the township's animal control officer and could involve the state dog warden.
Anyone with information should call Warrington police at 215-343-3311. All calls may remain confidential.
Abington police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the May 30 attack in the township, but police Chief John Livingood said Wednesday that charges are not likely to be filed.
"We are still checking a couple of things out," Livingood said in an email.
PIT BULL ATTACKS ITS OWNER
The victim in that attack was a 19-year-old woman who was one of the owners of the dogs.
While one of the dogs was biting the woman, the second dog charged at residents causing an officer to open fire, police said.
The incident occurred on the owners' property and they gave permission for an animal control officer to euthanize both dogs, according to police.
