YAKIMA, Wash. -- Officers found three illegal pit bulls living on a property last week near Nob Hill and 8th Street.

The owners told Action News they were given away to a family out of town.

Neighbors say they feel better.

"You feel much safer that they're not in the neighborhood any more and even before I mentioned to them that they should take care of their dogs and they never took heed," said neighbor John Feldheger.

Officers found these dogs a day after they killed two pit bulls considered to be terrorizing a neighborhood.

The breed is banned in Yakima.
