Police: Man fatally stabs pit bull fighting with his dog


Police say a man fatally stabbed a pit bull that was involved in a fight with his dog at a Connecticut park over the weekend.

East Hartford Lt. Joshua Litwin said animal control is investigating and there had been no arrests as of Monday morning.

Litwin tells the Hartford Courant ( the dogs began fighting at Labor Field about 11:45 a.m. Sunday.

He wasn’t sure what breed the other dog was.

But he says its owner pulled out a knife and began stabbing the pit bull in an attempt to get it to stop fighting with his dog.

The bleeding pit bull was taken to a veterinary hospital, where it died.
