WARREN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) -

The Warren County Sheriff's Office is searching for two pit bulls that attacked and killed a small dog a week ago. 

Sheriff Martin Pace said that the owner of the small dog was bitten by one of the pit bulls while trying to break up a dog fight. He was taken to Merit Health River Region and treated for a dog bite to the hand.

Pace says that Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society did obtain a court order for the capture of both pit bulls, but when officials went to pick up the dogs they were nowhere to be found.

Pace says he believes a friend or family member of the dog owner has the two dogs.

The investigation is still ongoing and it is still a possibility that criminal charges could be filed.
