Pit bull breaks into house, steals cat

From The (Myrtle Beach) Sun News police blotter:

On December 29 in Carolina Forest in Horry County, a victim said that while their cat was on the back patio, he and his wife heard a commotion.

They ran to the patio and saw a pit bull that had broken through the screen, grabbed their cat and broke out dragging the cat.

The victims chased the dog and got their cat, which they took to an animal emergency hospital.

The cat was expected to survive but required more treatment.

The officer located a subject who said he was watching the dog for a family member and a guest had let the dog get out.
