"I found her cat, the black one, underneath our trees. It was just laying there lifeless."
The same day, Reddy's cat went missing, Ian Rucker had a run in with the two pit bulls while walking down the street.
"It came up and sniffed me and then it bit me out of nowhere. His ears where down and everything. It looked like he wanted to be petted and it just bit me."
The bite left two holes in the 18-year-olds leg - sewn together by six stitches, but Rucker said this wasn't the first time he met the dogs.
"A couple weeks before, I was at my bus stop getting on my bus and they came running at me."

"They got out because somebody kicked my door in and busted out a window, so I wasn't abe to fix the window properly, so they got out like three times."
