The pit bulls that killed a Chihuahua in January are no longer with their owner.
Clark County Animal Control took them away after they say Ann White failed to comply with the necessary requirements after her pits were deemed dangerous.
"I've been crying every day," said pit bull owner Ann White. "Every day. I've been crying. Like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown and commit suicide because that's my dogs and they don't care."
White says Animal Control came to her house Friday morning to get the dogs. She says they didn't check to see if she had gotten insurance for the dogs like she was supposed to. Clark County told 13 Action News the woman never got insurance and never showed up to court.
The owner of the Chihuahua that was killed back in January in neighborhood near Las Vegas Boulevard and Richmar Avenue says she has been fighting for the dogs to be taken away for a long time. She feels some justice has been served.
"The law does stand in this county and I'm very impressed," said Nicole Gracia. "To let her feel a little of what I have lost like the pain that I had when I lost my Bella and watched her get eaten."
On the other hand, White says she will appeal this and try to get her pits back.
"I miss them because that's the only thing I talk to," said White. "I don't go out of the house. I don't do anything. This is what I do every day in the house. They are like my babies. I can't sleep without them."
It's unclear when and if the pit bulls will be euthanized.
