Dog kills another dog on Portland Streetcar

Portland police say that a dog was killed on the Portland Streetcar Wednesday evening by another dog.

Authorities said the attack happened while the streetcar was in the Pearl District.

According to Sgt. Pete Simpson, officers investigated the incident and spoke to witnesses but found no apparent criminal behavior. Neither dog owner was arrested or issued a citation.

Dylan Rivera with Portland’s Bureau of Transportation said only service animals are allowed on the streetcar.

It remains unclear if the dogs involved in the attack were service animals.
