A girl was recently killed by a stray dog in Hinds County, MS. Although multiple stray dogs were in the area on that day, and authorities still have not determined which dog was responsible, a stray “pit bull” that was near the scene when officials arrived was caught and has taken the blame for the death. According to a recent report from the facility where the “pit bull” is being held, the dog is scarred from some type of fighting.
In response to this event, Hinds County Supervisor George Smith intends to ask the county Board of Supervisors to ban “pit bulls” from Hinds County. He will bring the proposal forward during today’s meeting.
