A young boy from Durham was recently sent to the hospital with personal injuries he sustained in an attack by a pit bull mix. The boy and his family were visiting the Western North Carolina area at the time.
According to investigators, the 3-year-old boy was petting the dog at a Fontana Lake boat ramp when the dog suddenly attacked him, biting him in the face.
The child received transport to Mission Hospitals where he received stitches and was later released.
The dog was quarantined as a result of the attack.
