Deepa Bharath Police officers Thursday fired 13 rounds at a pit bull, which came charging at an officer who was chasing two fleeing teenagers in a residential neighborhood, officials said. Eight of those bullets hit the dog, killing it instantly, police said. The boys had been stopped by a motorcycle officer near the intersection of Princeton Drive and Fairview Road, said Costa Mesa Police Lt. John FitzPatrick. "One of them was riding a bike without wearing a helmet and the other was riding on the handlebar," he said.

A Newport Beach police sergeant wounded a pit bull after the dog reportedly charged toward him Sunday, police said. The sergeant was on patrol at about 3 a.m. near West Ocean Front and Summit Street when he saw a light that appeared to be emanating from a tent on a West Newport beach, Newport Beach Police Sgt. Bill Hartford said. The sergeant approached the tent to tell the occupant, Jose Lopez, 35, of Newport Beach, that camping is not allowed. As he walked toward the tent, the sergeant noticed an unleashed 80-pound pit bull near the tent, Hartford said.

The second pit bull involved in attacks on people in Newport Beach over the weekend was euthanized Tuesday, police officials said. The dog, a female pit bull, attacked a man near Newport Boulevard and 23rd Street on Sunday that left bites in his arm and leg. The first dog, a male pit bull, was euthanized Sunday night. The dogs’ owner, Ron Aubin of Newport Beach, gave his consent to police to euthanize the dogs, said Sgt. Evan Sailor. Statements given to police that morning paint a picture of two pit bulls gone wild trying to attack anyone they saw, Sailor said.

Veterinarian Joel Pasco could hardly believe his eyes when Costa Mesa resident Abel Octaviano brought Angel, his 3-month-old, hen-pecked pit bull pup, to All Creatures Care Cottage. Angel sustained scratches and pecking wounds across the top of his head and on his ears from being attacked by the family’s pet chicken, named Peww. While kids in Octaviano’s neighborhood love the friendly dog, they call the aggressive chicken a menace. “Everyone loves Angel, but Peww might end up as dinner in December,” Octaviano said.

I look forward to reader comments, questions and concerns. Here's a selection I received recently: DEAR STEVE: I'd never read your column until recently, because I don't have any pets. I wish to point out an opposite view on household pets. Whether dogs or cats, pets are not members of anyone's family. They're not human. You and so many people today seem to forget these two simple things. While I don't dislike animals and had both dogs and cats earlier in my life, I don't care to be around anybody's animals these days, especially in my house.

He is rarely able to toss a football. Most of the time, Jim Scott is confined to a wheelchair, and in his Estancia High School jersey — covered in patches from the school's championship teams — he maintains a sporty look. His friends use words like "pit bull" and "military" to describe him, but his voice, for the time being, is mostly silent. Scott, who helped launch the campaign 10 years ago to bring a stadium to Estancia, has sat on the sidelines for the last few months as his dream became a reality.

Tony Altobelli After this week, I've come to the conclusion that there is no way on Earth I can ever be high school head basketball coach. Aside from the fact that I have no game whatsoever, the emotional roller coaster these people go through game in and game out is enough to drive a mere mortal man crazy. I feel like I've aged 15 years over the past five days and it's all because of "Rivalry Week." I was fortunate enough to cover both the girls and boys basketball games between Costa Mesa High and Estancia and it was two of the noisiest, chaotic, entertaining, intense and exciting games I've witnessed in quite some time.

A pack of three adult pit bulls bit a mother and son early Friday south of Corona del Mar before being euthanized by authorities. The attack near Newport Coast Drive and East Coast Highway occurred at 5:36 a.m. The victims were guests at Marriott's Newport Coast Villas, said Newport Beach Police Sgt. Todd Hughes. They were taken to Hoag Hospital with minor injuries, said Jennifer Schulz, a Fire Department spokeswoman. It was unclear if all three dogs bit the mother and son, or how many bites they had. Eventually, the pit bulls were located, but when one officer got out of his car, the dogs advanced as if to attack.
