Kids Chased by Pit Bulls in Uniondale
Two pit bulls chased a group of kids and charged at police officers in Uniondale Friday, but nobody was injured, Nassau County police said.
The two dogs got out of their fenced yard around 5:30 p.m., police said, and started chasing the group of kids. The pit bulls also charged at responding officers causing one of the cops to fire a shot, police said, but none of the dogs were hit.
Emergency Service Officers also responded and were able to tranquillize the dogs using a dart, police said.
“The dogs returned home where they were removed by the Town of Hempstead Animal Control,” police said in a news release.
