Porter's pit bulls kill miniature horse
Two pit bulls owned by Steelers linebacker Joey Porter escaped from his backyard in Pine on Tuesday and killed a miniature horse that was grazing on a neighbor's farm, WTAE-TV reported Wednesday.
Northern Regional Police Chief Robert Amman told the television station that Porter assisted officers in bringing the dogs under control after they attacked the 29-inch-high miniature horse. The chief said the dogs managed to get away from Porter's yard despite the presence of what he called a secure fence.
Amman said Porter has expressed remorse to the horse's owner and has been cooperative with police. The chief said police will file summary charges against Porter for harboring unsafe dogs and failing to confine the animals.
