A pit bull attack at Colonial Terrace Mobile Home Park in Knoxville on Saturday resulted in injuries to the owner of the dog and a friend. According to Lt. Aaron Fuller with the Knoxville Police Department, the owner of the dog defended himself and his friend with a large knife, stabbing the dog multiple times, including at least once in the neck. Officers and the owner were able to subdue the dog, and it was subsequently euthanized. Records show that the dog bit another person on March 6. Knoxville Fire and Rescue also responded to the scene.
