Pit bull attacks boy, responding police officer
ATHENS - Athens-Clarke County police responding to a reported dog attack were also attacked by the canine shortly after their arrival.
The Athens-Banner Herald reports that it happened Tuesday on Nellie B. Avenue just before 10PM.
The dog was identified as a pit bull by its owners.
During the dog's rampage he killed another dog, severely bit a 10-year-old boy at the scene and then bit the arm of one of the officers before that officer was able to pull his weapon and shoot the dog, killing it.
The boy was taken to an area hospital. His condition is not known at this time.
