Security guards kill abandoned pitbulls
Central Bank security guards killed two pitbull terriers on Tuesday night after the animals attacked them in their carpark. Police said around 7 pm, the guards were on patrol at the Eric Williams Plaza, when they saw the dogs near parked cars. They tried to chase them out of the car park but they charged them. Police said one of the guards tried to run away but fell over, injuring his hand.
One of his colleagues then fired several warning shots which startled the dogs and they ran acrosss Independence Square towards another carpark on Edward Street. The dogs then attacked two attendants there, police said. The attendants barricaded themselves in a security booth to escape. The guards followed the dogs and shot them several times. Their carcasses were removed by employees of the Port-of-Spain City Corporation.
Police believe the dogs were abandoned shortly before the incident as they appeared to be well fed and groomed. Investigators plan to review CCTV camera footage from offices and businesses near the car parks to try to locate the owner. ASP Ajith Persad and Insp Powder of the Port-of-Spain CID are investigating.
