INTERNET (www.incnow.tv) - A digital flyer has been circulating the internet and it's led to some big concerns.

Someone out there has dubbed Halloween “Kill A Pit Bull Night.”

The flyers are encourage people to round up and kill as many pit bulls as possible, even outlining how to do it.

But the folks with Animal Care and Control say that would-be criminals should think twice.

Randy Thornton with Animal Care and Control says, “If you did decide to go to your neighbor's house or with your buddies out on a killing spree, you could be facing a felony or a misdemeanor. So, you need to think about, is it really worth it? I don't think so. We will catch you."

Thornton says pet owners should keep all dogs and cats indoors and away from trick-or-treaters.

Chocolate and candy wrappers can be another danger for your pets. Parents should also remember that kid's costume could cause any pet to act unpredictably.
