Two pit bulls, belonging to a family that reside at a home on Cherokee Drive, were taken into custody by Midland Animal Services last night. 

Nearby residents called for police and animal control after the dogs allegedly broke into a woman's backyard and attacked her dog.

The victimized pet owner, Chyann Wilson, lives on Kiowa drive, one street over from the pit bull's residence.

"There were two massive pit bulls that broke down my fence and attacked my German Shepherd puppy," says Wilson.

Neighbors say this isn't the first incident the dogs have been involved with.

Back on March 21st, Sandra Couser claims the dogs broke into her home and attacked her small Jack Russel terrier while her and her family were out to dinner.

She says the animals accomplished this by breaking her fence and using her home's doggie door.

"These dogs were inside my home, they violated my home, and they worked hard to get in," says Couser.

When Couser and her family got back home they found the dogs in the house.

"These dogs were inside my home, they violated my home, and they worked hard to get in," says Couser.

Police and animal control were called at that time as well, though the animals were released back to their owners while Midland Animal Services started an investigation into the incident.

Though officials tell us after this latest incident, the pit bulls are officially being pursued with dangerous dog charges.

They'll remain in custody with Midland Animal Services until a hearing on the charges is held.

If declared dangerous, the dogs may be humanely euthanized.
