Pit Bulls Caught in Uniondale Not Linked to Lakeview Attacks

Town of Hempstead Animal Control removes two dogs from Uniondale home.

Two pit bull dogs were taken from their home in Uniondale Friday after they charged after a group of kids and police officers.

According to Nassau County Police, the dogs got out of their fenced yard and around 5:29 p.m., they chased after a group of kids near Fisher Avenue and Planders Avenue in Uniondale. Officers responding to the scene were also charged by the dogs and one shot was discharged, but it not strike either of the animals, cops say. No injuries were reported.

Emergency Services officers were able to tranquilize the dogs using a dart. The dogs returned home, where they were removed by the Town of Hempstead Animal Control. 

A spokesman for the Nassau County Police told Patch Saturday morning that at this time, the dogs caught in Uniondale are not being linked to the pit bull attacks that occurred in Lakeview Tuesday night.

The two dogs who mauled four people in Lakeview within a span of 30 minutes are still suspected to be on the loose. Officers request anyone who may have information regarding those dogs to contact the Fourth Precinct at (516) 573-6400.

Two more Pit Bulls to be put up for adoption by the TOH. Look at next weeks dog for adoption. They will be labeled as sweet mouthy impulse driven family pets with very powerful jaws. Best for families with armed children over 30 and super duper homeowners insurance.
