More Pit Bull Madness In Indy
A pack of pit bull dogs trapped a 69-year-old Indianapolis resident, Roosevelt Tramill, in his pickup truck in his Kitley Avenue neighborhood Monday evening. "Tramill said the dogs 'surrounded his vehicle and growled and bared their teeth,' according to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department," the Star reports. "He said they 'jumped up and down on the doors which prevented him from leaving.” According to the Star, an IMPD officer shot and killed one of the dogs when police responded to a call and one of the dogs charged the officer. The dog belonged to 35-year-old Rico Terry. On Sunday, a 53-year-old Indianapolis man suffered a severe heart attack while attempting to break up a fight between his pit bull dog and a neighbor's doberman. "The man's pit bull had broken its chain and was fighting with a neighbor's dog," the Star reported.
