May 5, 2013. This morning three pit bulls were spotted running loose in Cypress near the Buc-ees along Highway 290. Apparently, the dogs got loose and were roaming the area unwatched.
One of the pit bulls was stuck and killed by a car. It is not clear whether the pit bulls came from the apartment complex nearby or one of the Fairfield residences.
Pit bulls, like any dog, can be dangerous to corral by people who are not familiar to the dogs. If you see pit bulls roaming free like this, please call animal control immediately rather than trying to corral them yourselves.
These animals should never be allowed to roam free like this. Pit bull attacks can cause serious injury or death to people and/or other animals. There is no excuse for an owner not having them under tight lock and key at all times so that they never get loose. If animal control determines who the owners are, they will be cited for violating Harris County leash laws.
