Berlin, April 8 (RIA Novosti) The 24-year-old owner of a pit bull in Germany was detained after biting a police officer on the hip, the ddp news agency reported Wednesday.
The incident occurred after residents in the western German town of Aachen called police saying they were frightened that a pit bull was walking around their houses without a leash and a muzzle.

When police arrived, they saw that the dog had already ripped up two footballs and parents had taken children playing in the park away from the dog. The owner observed his pet’s actions without intervening.

When asked to put a muzzle on the pit bull, the man started yelling at the officer and bit her on the hip. The attacker was then taken to a police station, while the dog was caught by staff from an animal shelter.
