Two dogs dead after attack

LATHAM -- Police say a resident was walking a small dog along Nelson Avenue when another dog jumped a fence and attacked.

Officials describe the attacking dog as an American bulldog mix. They say it was wearing a muzzle at the time, but managed to remove it before the attack that happened just before 9:30 on Monday morning.

Colonie Police say several bystanders tried to help out, but were unsuccessful. An off-duty cop noticed what was going on, cleared everyone away and fired one round near the dogs to break them up.

The dog that was attacked was taken to a local animal hospital and euthanized due to its injuries. The aggressor was also euthanized after its owner voluntarily turned the dog over to Colonie Animal Control.
