DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a pit bull has been quarantined after it attacked two small dogs, killing one.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://goo.gl/53ePne) reports that the attack occurred Wednesday morning.

Daytona Beach police report that a woman was pushing her infant son in a stroller and walking her two dachshunds when the pit bull charged the group and attacked the smaller dogs. A report says a neighbor ran outside when he heard screams and secured the pit bull to a power pole.

Police say both dachshunds were taken to a vet, and one later died. The woman and her son weren’t injured.

Officials say the pit bull’s owner was not present when the attack occurred and will not face criminal charges.
