SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Leaders in South Dakota's largest city are considering how to reduce the potential for dog attacks following an incident in which a man playing basketball in a Sioux Falls park was mauled by two pit bulls.
The Daily Republic recently wrote “Another pit bull attack, and another day without an ordinance. We suppose it would sound sadistic if we said it’s unfortunate that a Mitchell police officer’s aim was off when shooting at a charging pit bull earlier this month.”
The owner of a dog deemed to be dangerous by a city official said Thursday that the designation is “ridiculous.”
Susi Contreras, Mitchell, was fined $351 after her three dogs ran loose — she said they escaped their pens at 713 ½ W. Second Ave. — and allegedly cornered Diane Odegaard, Mitchell, as she was walking her own dogs early Thursday morning.
