SAND SPRINGS, Oklahoma -

Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies say it took killing a pit bull to get it to let go after the dog attacked a man walking through his Sand Springs neighborhood.

A pit bull belonging to a neighbor got loose and attacked the man in the area of 800 West Long Street, in Sand Springs.

The man ran to another neighbor for help. Sgt. Terry Woodard said the neighbor tried and failed to pry the dog off of the man, even tried choking it, and eventually resorted to stabbing it to death to get it to let go.

The victim was transported by EMSA to a Tulsa hospital to be treated for bites to his arm.

Woodard Animal Control will be testing the dog for rabies.

He said an investigation will be done to determine whether the owner of the dog should be charged with a crime.
