A Summerville man was issued a leash law citation last week after his two dogs escaped and killed at least one cat.

Last Saturday Summerville Police Officers received a call that two dogs, described as Pit bull Dogs, had a cat and appeared to be harming it. Officers arrived and located the dogs, however when Animal Control arrived the dogs had managed to run off.

Sometime later, a second call came into the City Police and stated that the dogs were on Pink Dogwood Circle and had killed a cat there. Animal Control was able to locate the dogs this time, and they were taken to the local animal shelter.

The owner was located and a citation was issued for a leash law violation.
