An Upper West Sider shared a video of an argument between dog owners at Bull Moose Dog Run on 81st Street by the American Museum of Natural History on Monday morning. The scene, which was shared on NextDoor, apparently followed a pretty scary attack. The video and description are below.
The dog who “latched onto another for several minutes” was the pit bull shown above, whose owner is wearing a black t-shirt.
In the video, the pit bull owner can be heard saying “no no no, that dog was loose! That dog came to my dog! My dog had the ball in his mouth!”
We reached out to the person who took the video for additional comment. The only thing she wanted us to add was to “discourage mean comments towards [pit bulls] as all dogs should be properly trained when entering the park.”
In the comments section below her post, she reiterated the point that it’s not about the breed of dog being the issue. Users responded by saying “The breed really has nothing to do with it” and that “It is about good training.”
