Dog Owner Cited After Attacks

Moss Point police have issued citations to owner of two pit bulls now at the Jackson County animal shelter. 

The two dogs attacked Reverend Randy Kimbrough and his wife Ruth Kimbrough outside the parsonage of Moss Point Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning. Both underwent surgery, but only the pastor has been released from the hospital.

The Kimbroughs live on Dantzler Street. The dogs belong to the Kimbrough's neighbor who lives on Weems Street.

Chief Demetrius Drakeford says Margaret Wounts was cited on Tuesday for violation of the leash law and for not being able to prove her animals have had their rabies shots.

The court date is June 5th.

Chief Drakeford says police are investigating whether the dogs have a violent history to see if more action should be taken.
