According to Nampa, Idaho Police, a 3-year-old received personal injuries after being bitten in an attack that involved three pit bulls at a Nampa residence.
According to investigators, the child was a visitor at the home and entered the back yard alone. At some point, the dogs became aggressive toward the boy and attacked him.
One of the house’s adult residents spotted the boy near the
dogs, who were described as acting aggressively, and went to get help from
another adult. According to officers, they were able to remove the boy from the
animals and contact 911.
The child was taken in an ambulance to Mercy Medical Center before being transferred to a hospital in Boise, Idaho.
The dogs were taken by animal control officers to the Canyon County, Idaho Animal Shelter, where they will be held awaiting a hearing by the Nampa vicious dog board.
