NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) -- Police say a pit bull was repeatedly stabbed during a pet adoption event inside a PetSmart store in the west Georgia town of Newnan, horrifying adults and children.

A police report states that a man stabbed the pit bull, Clara, after it slipped out of its collar and began tugging on the ear of his dog, a Westie Terrier.

Teresa Reeves tells WXIA-TV that the man pulled out a pocket knife and repeatedly stabbed Clara. Reeves said there was "blood everywhere" and the worst thing she's ever seen.

The Newnan Times-Herald reports that the pit bull was euthanized due to the severity of the stab wounds.

No arrests have been made.

PetSmart said in a statement the safety of people and pets in its stores is its top priority
