Summons in fatal dog attack

Trisha K. Vincent, 36, 989 Red Bud Court in Fruita, was issued a summons on suspicion of several crimes after her dog, a Labrador retriever-pit bull mix, allegedly mauled and killed a Chihuahua on Monday, according to Fruita Police Chief Mark Angelo.

Fruita officers were called around 6:15 p.m. on a report of a fatal dog attack. They arrived at 1025 E. McCune Ave. to find a dead Chihuahua in the front yard of the home. Officers were able to track the dog back to the Red Bud Court home, where Vincent was cited and her dog handed over to the custody of Mesa County Animal Services, Angelo said.
