Police ask for residents' help to capture the pair

A pair of dogs is terrorizing Northwest DeLand, and neighbors are anxious for the animals to be captured before a person gets hurt.
The dogs, which appear to be of mixed breed, have killed at least one cat, and are being blamed for wiping out the duck colony that lived in Painter's Pond Park on East Wisconsin Avenue in Downtown DeLand.
The dogs are of medium size, possibly of mixed breed, including pit bull. They are both medium brown, but one is lighter in color than the other. If you see these two dogs, the DeLand Police Department asks that you immediately call 386-626-7400. Choose the non-emergency option, and inform the person who answers that you are calling at the request of police to report the dogs' location.
