Foothills--Yuma County Animal Control said they removed two pit bulls from a foothills neighborhood Thursday night.
Animal Control officer Phil Beatty said it was a mutual decision between the Yuma County Sheriff's Office and animal control.
He said the animals were taken in the best interest of safety for the public and the dogs.
Animal control said the pit bulls are temporarily staying at the Humane Society of Yuma.
"I'm actually kind of glad because if they were running out and running around, who knows what they would have done," Taylor Crowder-Morehead, who lives in the area said. "It could have been a kid or somebody else."
Video released shows the aftermath of the pit bull attack that happened Monday afternoon in Foothills in the 11-thousand block of Shadow Avenue.
The horse suffered puncture wounds to its legs, stomach and mouth.
Yuma County Sheriff Deputies said the two pit bulls got out while the owner was away from home.
A vet had to euthanize the horse three hours later.
Neighbors said they are relieved that the pit bulls have been removed from the home.
The pit bull owners are scheduled to appear in court later this month. The fate of the pit bulls will then be decided.
