The pit bull that attacked and killed a woman's dog in a park last month has been euthanized, according to Animal Care and Control.

Animal Care and Control kept the dog in quarantine and planned to put it down after 10 days if no one came to claim the dog. No one did.

The 10-day mark passed earlier this week, but Animal Care and Control waited for clearance from their Dangerous Dog Coordinator to be able to euthanize the dog.

A portion of the attack at Okeeheelee Park was caught on video.
