At approximately 6:45 a.m. on February 6, 2018, in the 800 block of Center Pointe Dr., a dog being walked by it’s owner was attacked by an unrestrained pit bull.

An off duty officer from the Galveston Port Authority Police Dept. was driving to work when he heard the commotion caused by the attack.

The officer drove to the scene where he shot the pit bull twice, ending the attack. The pit bull was later euthanized at the scene by Animal Control Officers.

The pit bull’s owner, who lives in Center Pointe Subdivision where the attack occurred, will be cited for “Animal At Large”. 

The dog owner was uninjured while the severity of her dog’s injuries is unknown. The incident is being investigated by League City Animal Control.

The League City press release did not name the officer who shot the canine.

Not to mention the "defective gene" owner of these viscous animals. I get so sick and tired of the pro Pitt Bull people and their owners go on about how sweet and loving they are and it's all about how you raise them..... I call BS! Try this, google "disfigured by pitt bull" and see all the horrible pics. Then do the same but substitute Pitt Bull for Cocker Spaniel, Labrador, Poodle,Yorkie, and others and then tell me again how great and loving these dogs are.
