The Greensboro News-Record.com captured images of the fatally attacking family pit bull, male, along with two Beware of Dog signs posted on the family’s home and documentation of the pit bull being held in quarantine as “very aggressive.” Neighbor Katherine Dixon, 24, who lives next door, said the family moved in about a year ago and have two pit bulls. A few months ago, both pit bulls broke through a fence an attacked a neighbor’s pet dog that was being walked by its owner. –DogsBite.org
