Pit bull taken to shelter after small dog killed

A neighbor’s pit bull killed a Trafalgar woman’s small dog, and county animal control took away the larger dog this week.

The pit bull had attacked and killed Sharon Smith’s shih tzu named Chloe. Smith called the police, and an officer got the pit bull away from the shih tzu.

This week, animal control took the pit bull to the Johnson County Animal Shelter, and workers will watch it for 10 days to see if it’s aggressive prior to deciding what to do with it, animal warden Michael Delp said. So far, the dog has been growling at animal shelter workers who walk by, he said.
