Pit Bull Shot By Deputies; Pot Plants Found In Backyard Near Molino

Comments Off on Pit Bull Shot By Deputies; Pot Plants Found In Backyard Near Molino


“Another pit bull shot – after it attacked & killed a neighbours dog! The police knew it was vicious, but had it contained; waiting for animal control to come.  So what happened, to make that dog attempt to charge at the officers; prompting them to kill it? It all sounds a little fishy to me!”

Marijuana plants discoved Friday morning in the backyard of a home in the 10000 block of Highway 29, near the Camp of the Pines.

An animal complaint north of Molino led to deputies shooting a pit bull and the discovery of pot plants in a backyard this morning.

Escambia County deputies responded to a complaint about an aggressive put bull about 9 a.m. at a residence in on Highway 29 near Cotton Lake Road. The dog was loose in the victim’s yard and had attacked and killed her dog.

Deputies kept the pit bull contained in the yard and notified Escambia County Animal Control. But before animal control arrived, the pit bull attempted to attack two officers who then utilized a shotgun to stop the dog, according to Melissa Rawson, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies attempted to contact the owner of the dog at a nearby home on Highway 29 across from the Camp Of the Pines, animal control located several other pit bulls in varying stages of distress. Escambia County Animal Control officers took possession of the dogs for further investigation.

During the investigation, deputies discovered four marijuana plants being cultivated in the backyard of the home. The Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division responded and took over that part of the investigation. Rawson said charges are pending against the residents at this time.

Code Enforcement also responded and opened a separate investigation for various code violations.

Sheriff’s Office identifies owner of badly abused pit bull

Comments Off on Sheriff’s Office identifies owner of badly abused pit bull

“Speechless… apart from I expect to see the women charged with gross animal abuse & neglect!” 

Charges could be filed after dog euthanized for chewing paralyzed legs.


Investigators with the Rio Arriba Sheriff’s Office said they’ve identified the owner of a pit bull mix who had to be euthanized after being brought to a shelter with signs of severe abuse.

Davis the pit bull mix was shot in January, but police said it wasn’t until May that his owner took him to the Espanola Animal Shelter. By then, Davis had rubbed and chewed off much of his paralyzed legs.

Now that the RASO has identified the owner, investigators said they’re conducting an investigation and the owner could face animal abuse charges.

“When I asked the owner why she didn’t euthanize the animal at the time, she said that she believed in miracles and she had that faith and wanted the dog to recover,” said Nina Stively, of the Espanola Animal Shelter.

The RASO said anyone who sees animal abuse should call them immediately

Dog Owner Claims Winn. Co. Animal Control Abused Her Dog – Video

Comments Off on Dog Owner Claims Winn. Co. Animal Control Abused Her Dog – Video

When Stephanie Sterling picked her dog Onyx up from Winnebago County Animal Control this month, she couldn’t believe her eyes.

“She had lost so much blood, she was bleeding from everywhere,” Sterling says.

It all started back in April, when Onyx, a pit bull mix, ran from her yard and bit a woman in the leg.

“I was in tears, I was hysterical, I don’t know what happened to her that day.”

Animal Control took her for the next two weeks.

“She’s never bitten anybody. I didn’t know what was gonna happen.”

Whatever happened wasn’t pretty. Onyx had lesions all over her body, lost a toe, had to have surgery on her leg, and was badly malnourished.

“If I hadn’t of picked her up that day, I think if I had waited one more day she would’ve been dead.”

Animal control’s records show they examined the dog four times in two weeks. But they said everything was normal even though they noted the dog was covered in blood clots and dried blood.

Animal control says they don’t think they did anything wrong. But they have agreed to pay $1700 for one of the dog’s hefty medical bills.

And they dropped the dangerous dog investigation against Onyx. They say they will investigate whether the dog was mistreated if they need to, but at this point they feel all actions were appropriate.

Sometimes dogs just hurt themselves when they are caged, and their veterinarian didn’t see anything wrong with the dog.
