Pit bull kills 7 cats in Conway

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina woman has been cited by police after her pit bull got into a neighbor's yard and killed seven cats.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Wednesday that 18-year-old Amber Nichole Tucker of Conway was released on $700 bond after she was cited for allowing her dog to kill.

A police report says a neighbor saw the dog kill three cats and three kittens. When an officer arrived, the dog had a cat in its mouth. That cat also died.

The report says Tucker told police she did not know how her dog got out of its fenced area. The pit bull was seized.
