Yolo deputies shoot aggressive pit bulls

Yolo County sheriff’s deputies fatally shot two pit bulls that charged them during a probation search Monday in Woodland, sheriff’s officials said.

Sgt. Lance Faille said the incident occurred at about 9:20 a.m. at a home in the 100 block of Antelope Street. Deputies arrived to find two people at the residence, along with three pit bulls in a bedroom that was to be searched. Animal control officers were called in to remove the dogs from the room.

“While one dog was being removed by an animal control officer, a second came charging out of the bedroom,” Faille said in a news release. A deputy deployed his Taser to control the dog, and a third dog came out of the bedroom, tearing the electrical wires from the Taser’s barbs as it passed by the second dog.

At that point, both loose dogs charged at two deputies, who shot at the animals, Faille said. The animals were transported to the UC Davis Veterinary Hospital but were pronounced dead on arrival.

The third pit bull and five other dogs found in the home’s back yard — none of which were properly licensed — were taken to the county animal shelter, Faille said.

Deputies did not find the person who was the subject of the probation search but arrested the two occupants of the home on suspicion of possessing drug parahernalia, Faille said. Carol Vitalie, 46, and Vincent Van Asperson, 43, were lodged at the Yolo County Jail.
