SHADY HILLS, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a pack of dogs attacked two people in a Florida neighborhood.
Pasco County Sheriff’s officials tell news outlets that the pack which included three bulldogs bit a 15-year-old boy on the leg around 7am as he was on his way to school Thursday. His injuries are said to be minor.
A short time later, the dogs attacked a man. His injuries are said to be serious.
A sheriff’s deputy fired shots at a dog after it tried to attack him. Officials say the deputy wasn’t injured and the dog, which was shot in the head, was euthanized at its owners’ request.
The owner of the dogs told WTSP that he recently moved to the area and did not see a hole in his fence behind a shrub, which allowed the dogs to get out.
Pasco County Animal Control took custody of the other two dogs. Two puppies that were with the dogs but not involved in the attack were returned to the owners.
