The victim's owner said the dogs dug under the fence in the backyard. They claim bulldogs got into their yard a few days ago and bit another one of their dogs.

“Right now all I can tell you is I've made contact with the dog owners and they are willing to surrender the dogs to Miami-Dade Animal Services, and they will probably be issued two citations for their dog killing the victim dog,” investigator Luis Salgado said.

The bulldogs were taken away Monday afternoon, and their owners will be fined $500 for each of the two citations.
