Officials are trying to track down who last had possession of a pit bull that chased a Springfield man into the street Thursday night.
Both the man and the dog were struck by a car. The man suffered minor injuries… the dog was picked up by animal control.
A chip implanted in the pit bull led authorities to its owner… who said the dog had been taken from her by animal control a year ago. But county animal control officials say the dog was returned to that woman, who now lives in Chatham. Neighbors say the pit bull had been roaming free and acting aggressively for weeks before Thursday’s incident along South Grand Avenue East.
