Terrier Attacked by Pit Bull Dies from Injuries


The terrier that was attacked earlier this week by a pit bull has died.

Yarmouth resident Christine Lovico was walking her terrier on Roberta Drive last Wednesday night when the unleashed pit bull attacked from behind.

The pit bull attacked the woman and her dog for four minutes, violently shaking the terrier and biting the owner on the hands and back.

Yarmouth Police have the pit bull in quarantine although the owner will not face any criminal charges. State law does not prosecute violence by an animal unless it is being used as a weapon. However, legal proceedings against the owner could result in the pit bull being euthanized.

The pit bull’s previous owner was a member of the Nauti Block gang, Christian Chapman, currently incarcerated for attempted murder and drug charges. Chapman’s girlfriend was caring for the dog.
