Anders Gillis had strapped on his roller skis and strode past the pit bull that viciously attacked him last Friday dozens of times as he trained along Farmers Loop.
And every time he saw the dog, he had the same reaction.
“It's always been at the end of its chain,” Gillis said Tuesday evening. “I've looked over at it and said, 'Boy, I hope that dog never gets loose.'”
