BRIGHTON HEIGHTS, Pa. - Animal Control was called after a pit bull was spotted near a local elementary school Monday morning.
Officials at John Morrow Elementary school were concerned when the dog was seen wandering near the school as children arrived for classes.
A teacher captured the dog, known for getting loose, and waited for humane officers to arrive.
According to volunteers at the Animal Rescue League, the pit bull, Belly, is docile and friendly, but has gotten loose at least eight times. His owner owes hundreds of dollars in fines for not keeping him properly fenced in, they said.
Belly’s owner is facing an additional $300 in fines for not having him properly licensed.
