Two Spartanburg Children Bitten by Roaming Male Pit Bull
Posted on Feb 20, 2012
A male pit bull running loose in a Spartanburg neighborhood bit two children getting off of a school bus on Friday afternoon, January 6.
According to North Carolina new sources, a five-year-old child was bitten by the dog first before the aggressive pet turned on a 10-year-old girl and attacked. The younger child did not suffer puncture wounds in the attack and did not require medical treatment. The older girl, however, was taken to the emergency room at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center for treatment.
The dog bite incident took place on Mirabell County in Spartanburg.
The pit bull had a collar and a rabies tag for 2010. The owners of the dog were located and could face fines for letting the dog run loose and having a pet that caused a nuisance. The dog is currently in quarantine at the Spartanburg Humane Society. It is unclear what will happen to the animal after quarantine period is over.
North Carolina Police will continue the dog bite investigation and have interviewed both the families of the dog bite victims and the owners of the aggressive dog.
The North Carolina dog bite attorneys at Brent Adams & Associates wish both dog bite victims a quick and complete recovery.
