Camden County police say officers tried to snare the dogs when they arrived on the scene, but the pit bulls kept pursuing them.

The officers used their tasers on the dogs, but that didn’t work. They then shot the two pit bulls, killing them.

Both bite victims were treated on the scene and released.

  1. It’s good that the pit bulls are dirt napped; unfortunately people who own this violent breed don’t know any better than to keep them under lock and key. People are sick of these hell hounds being paraded around and advocated for as if they are just normal dogs while everyday someone is mauled, killed or loses their pet to their violent attacks.
