Man Suffers Major Injuries After Being Attacked by Two Pit Bulls

“I was at the corner when it happened, the dogs attacked a man crossing the street. Four cars stopped and started honking to get them off him, then they got out the car. The dogs turned on one man and got him down. It was horrific, the two guys got to safety, but the two dogs were loose when I drove off. Both dogs had blood on them one was dripping blood from his mouth,” said Bianca Morales, on a Victor Valley News Facebook group comment.

One of the two dogs was reported to be shot by a deputy in order to stop the dog from attacking any additional bystanders . The second dog was taken by animal control. The initial victim transported to the hospital for treatment of major injuries caused by the attack. It is unknown if any others were transported for treatment of injuries as a result of the attack.

No further information is available at this time, information will be updated as it is received.
