Dog kills smaller dog at Ferguson Dog Park Saturday

A large dog killed a small dog in a fenced-in area at the Ferguson Dog Park Saturday, according to Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo.

Police were dispatched to the Ferguson Dog Park in the 4300 block of North Stone Mill Road around 6:50 p.m. Saturday to make a report after a dog killed another dog. Two unleashed dogs that were playing in a fenced-in area for larger dogs got into an altercation. The larger dog killed the smaller dog.

The large dog grabbed the smaller dog and shook it violently, according to the larger dog’s owner. He said he immediately tried to intervene, but it was too late, the smaller dog was deceased.

The larger dog’s owner said he’d taken his dog to the park before, and there had never been any issues.

Police were called to make a report, and the case is being referred to animal control. There was no information in the report about the breeds of dogs involved in the incident.
