Pit Bull Owner Tried

PARIS () -- A pit bull gobbled up a Yorkshire terrier whose mistress committed suicide out of grief, a Paris court heard Thursday.

The woman's husband was seeking damages from the pit bull owner for failing to keep his dog under control after it jumped on the wife's brood of little dogs as she walked them in a Paris street, eating one of them up.

The wife never recovered from the shock and committed suicide, the husband told the court. The court reserved judgment until March 19.
