When he ran outside, he could see dogs attacking his sister, Robin Macon, 62, in front of the house.
“She was out here watering plants and the dog ran across the street and attacked her,” said Fields.
He then did what he could to help.
“When I was trying to get ’em off of her, the dogs run at me, I throwed everything I could get at ’em and it didn’t do no good, the dogs were still coming,” said Fields.
Macon was taken to the hospital with severe injuries from multiple dog bites.
St. Petersburg police officers arrived on scene and the dogs came at them as they tried to get out of their cars.
“They were extremely aggressive. Every time our officers tried to get out of their patrol cars, they would attack them. They used fire extinguishers, in fact they completely emptied one fire extinguisher trying to get the dogs back, and they weren’t able to,” said Yolanda Fernandez with the St. Petersburg Police Department.
“I heard my friend across the street moaning and groaning and her brother was trying to beat them off with a stick, but the dogs had drug her off already,” said Butler, who suffered a bit on her leg when one of the dogs turned to attack her.
An Animal Services officer also came under attack at the scene.
Eventually, officers used pepper spray on the dogs and they retreated back into their home.
When the owner finally arrived home, the Animal Services officer informed her of what her Pit Bulls had done and that they were to be quarantined. For the officers safety, they had the owner put a leash on the dogs, which then had catch pole noose put around their necks and then the owner and Animal Services officer, walked the dogs, one by one to her truck and the owner loaded them up.
The dogs, after going on their terror spree, had apparently turned back into 'regular acting dogs' by the time the owner got home and brought them outside.
St. Petersburg police say the dogs will now be quarantined and Animal Services will conduct a vicious dog investigation to determine their fate.
“They need to kill all four of ’em. All four of them dogs need to be put down,” said Willie Fields.
