The Inver Grove Heights Police Department has euthanized a pit bull today.
Last month, the pit bull atacked and killed a 70-year-old woman's dog in Inver Grove Heights.
On March 26th, Margaret Johnston was walking her miniature Schnauzer along with her 2-year-old grandson when the white pit bull mix came up from behind them and attacked her dog.
The Schnauzer was killed in the attack and once the pit bull was separated from the Schnauzer, it went after Johnston.
Johnston got bitten and her and the pit bull rolled down a hill. Johnston was able to punch the dog several times and the dog ran away.
On March 28th, officers located the dog's owner. Officers quarantined the pit bull at a animal hospital for a mandatory 10 day period.
At the request of the dog's owner the pit bull was euthanized.
