SCRAPS Captures Aggressive Pit Bulls On Spokane's South Hill

SCRAPS PRESS RELEASE: On Tuesday SCRAPS received a call reporting that two pit bull type dogs were running at large and acting aggressive in the unincorporated area of the South Hill. SCRAPS immediately responded with one officer and a second officer was dispatched to the scene to assist. 

The dogs were confined and taken to SCRAPS. "This is a common type of call we respond to and for all different breeds of dogs," stated Lead Animal Protection Officer Nicole Montano. "We do not find that pit bulls are typically more aggressive than other breeds it really depends on the specific dog and whether or not it has been altered," she continued. 

According to the Center for Disease Control 70 % of all dog bite cases involve unneutered male dogs and 97% of dogs involved in all fatal dog attacks are not spayed or neutered. The CDC concluded that the negligence of humans was a higher risk factor than the breed of a dog.

"The safety of the citizens in our community is extremely important to us here at SCRAPS and we respond to this type of call immediately after receiving the call," said Nancy Hill, SCRAPS Director. "Spaying and neutering your pets is important not just to reduce the pet overpopulation problem but it also helps modify aggressive behavior," she stated. 

SCRAPS has a spay/neuter voucher program for residents of unincorporated Spokane County and the cities of Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, Cheney and Millwood that provides them a voucher for the cost of a pet license. 

Citizens are reminded that there is a county wide leash law and dogs must be either on-leash or confined in their yard or home.

"The circumstances surrounding this particular case are still under investigation and further information may be forthcoming," said Hill.
