NIMISHILLEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Stark County authorities are looking for the owners of a dog that attacked a young girl and terrorized a neighborhood, NewsChannel5 reported.


The 100-pound Rottweiler mix attacked 9-year-old Amanda Blind in Nimishillen Township on Friday, NewsChannel5 reported. The canine is described as a large white dog with a black spot on its back and a black spot over its eye.


Deputies said the dog was killed after one resident pulled a shotgun on it in self-defense.

Deputies are looking for a newer full-size white pickup truck seen dropping the dog off in the area of Maplegrove Ave. N.E. north of Georgetown St. N.E. on Thursday evening.


Sheriff Timothy Swanson is requesting that anyone with information regarding the ownership of the dog to contact the Stark County Sheriff's Office at 330-430-3800 or the Stark County
Dog Warden's Office at 330-451-2343.

That is called a "lead" and is all part of the investigation. They aren't saying that the people in the pickup are the DEFINITE owners, but it would make sense to follow-up if someone said they saw the people in that truck dropping off the dog.

Being suspicious as I am I would say that the people who supposedly saw this apparent truck were probably more involved than they like to admit...and they think seen as the dog is dead anyway and the dog has done something that someone might get charged for we better blame somone else quick smart

That's possible as well and also deserves to be looked at. I'm sure the police are looking into all of those options. If this case crossed my desk, I sure would be.
