The dog injured by another dog Tuesday at North Beach was euthanized.

Wisconsin Humane Society Spokesperson Angela Speed confirmed for Racine County Eye that the female dog suffered injuries so extensive that she could not be saved. The man who owned both dogs surrendered the injured dog to WHS.

“The dog’s injuries, unfortunately, were so severe that the decision was made rather quickly to euthanize her,” Speed said.

Racine police were forced to shoot and kill a dog Tuesday morning at North Beach after it attacked another dog and its owner.

RPD Sgt. Jessie Metoyer confirmed for The Journal Times that a man was walking his two dogs – both pit bull terriers – at North Beach around 10 a.m. Tuesday. One dog attacked the other dog, and the man said he couldn’t separate them.

When police arrived, the one dog was still on top of the other animal and had bitten its owner. Officers were forced to shoot the dog that was attacking, killing it.

The man refused medical treatment for his wound.

Police did capture the injured dog and transported it to the Wisconsin Humane Society in Mount Pleasant where it was euthanized.
