SAN DIEGO -
Officials say a man walking his dog on the streets of San Diego stabbed a pit bull to death after the animal attacked him.
U-T San Diego reports Monday that the man was walking in the City Heights neighborhood when the dog came at him Sunday night.
County animal services Lt. Dan DeSousa says the pit bull retreated to its home, where the owner took the dog to a veterinarian's office. The dog died there.
The victim and his dog suffered only minor bites, and he declined to file charges against the dog's owner.
