4 Pit Bulls Attack Animal Control Officers
[su_right_ad]Four Pit Bulls attacked four Oklahoma City animal control officers after one of them went to investigate a dog bite to a juvenile.
When [the first officer] arrived, the dogs came from “out of nowhere,” said Trace Lyons with Oklahoma City’s Animal Welfare Division, as she described how the dogs charged out of the property and attacked the officer, biting him on the legs, stomach and back..
.“They all got pretty aggressive,” a witness told News 9.
The officer contacted his supervisor who came out to assist, but the Pit Bulls also attacked him. He was bitten as soon as he got out of his vehicle, according to NewsOn6.
The officers stated they could not tell for sure which dogs were responsible for which bites because they operated as a pack in the surprise attacks.
Officials said both animal control employees will recover and the juvenile who was bitten the day before suffered only minor injuries.
All four dogs were impounded and will be quarantined for ten days at the animal welfare facility and observed for signs of rabies.[su_csky_ad]
