THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Two pit bulls got out of their kennels and killed a neighbor's dog in Thomasville. Animal control euthanized the pit bulls Tuesday.

The attack happened Saturday morning on Cloverdale Drive when two pit bulls escaped their pens, ran into another yard, attacked and killed the dog that lived here. The owner of the dog killed called police.

When officers arrived, the pit bulls charged the officers.

"The officers had to defend themselves by discharging a shotgun to the ground to ward them off, as well as using a taser," said Asst. Chief Troy Rich of the Thomasville Police Department.  "Eventually law enforcement located the owners of the dogs and was able to control the dogs, turn them over to animal control."

Animal control decided the pit bulls were too dangerous to adopt. They put the dogs to sleep Tuesday.     

The owner of the pit bulls was cited for dogs running at large.
