Pit bull owner asking for jury trial in dog attack

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The woman whose pit bull allegedly went on a killing rampage last week in West Ashley is asking for a jury trial.

The owner, 21-year-old Paige Ashley Bird, was cited with vicious animal, animal at large and non vaccination.

The owner of two of the dogs that were attacked say the pit bull came charging from the woods and attacked both the dogs outside his home.

Shortly after, police responded to another attack at the West Ashley park. An owner of a dalmatian says the same pit bull attacked her dog which is now ok.

The pit bull was finally captured in Providence Commons. The dog is being held at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
