Man concerned about neighbor's pit bulls after 2 attacks - WIS News 10 - Columbia, South Carolina |: "Just two weeks earlier, the same pit bulls cornered Cox's Chihuahua inside his garage leaving puddles of blood on the floor. That attack sent Cox's dog to the vet and left him with a $780 vet bill. He also spent another $600 dollars on a fence. Cox said he worked out a deal with his neighbor, Eric Melton, to cover the vet bill and to keep his dogs restrained. Melton told WIS he agreed to pay the bill but that changed when the second attack happened. "I tried to address this neighbor-to-neighbor and all that resulted in was be me being attacked a second time," said Cox. "So I feel like at this point it's serious enough and dangerous enough where I need to address the matter through law enforcement."" 'via Blog this'
