Charged With Dog Violations

Two peo­ple from Bryan have been charged fol­low­ing a dog attack ear­lier this month that ended when Bryan Police shot and killed one of the dogs.

Offi­cers were called out on a report of two unli­censed pit bulls run­ning loose in the area of the Amer­i­can Legion Post 284 and Lin­coln Ele­men­tary School on East But­ler Street.

One of the pit bulls ran home, but the other attacked and car­ried off a Chi­huahua which was on a leash with its owner at the time. The Chi­huahua died due to its injuries.

Police arrived and attempts were made to sub­due the pit bull with a stun gun. When that had no effect, police fired, killing the dog.

The Bryan Times reports that Renee Schlegel and Ryan Mumaw each have now been charged with fail­ure to reg­is­ter the dogs and dog-at-large violations.
