Dog Attack

 

 — An 8-year-old York boy was attacked by a dog on Friday.

Police responded to 709 Blackburn Street at 5:15 p.m. and found the boy with several bite wounds and scratches on his arms, chest and back, as well as cuts to his leg, said York Police Chief Andy Robinson.

EMS transported him to Piedmont Medical Center, where he received several stitches and staples to treat his injuries. Animal control took custody of the dog, a Chow Chow.

The dog was on a leash in its owner's yard when the attacked occurred, Robinson said.

The boy, a neighbor to the dog's owner, was known to play with the dog regularly, he said.

Police are unsure why the dog became "vicious" and attacked the boy.

A woman inside a nearby laundry mat across the street told police she saw the dog pounce on the boy and heard him scream, according to a York police report. She began throwing rocks at the dog. A neighbor across the road struck the dog with a bat to get it off the boy.

Officers checked on the boy on Sunday, Robinson said, and he seemed to be doing well. He will have to go to the hospital for a follow-up this week.

The dog is scheduled to be euthanized today, Robinson said.

No charges have been filed.

Late last month, 11-year-old Kenny Allen was mauled by a 2-year-old pit bull when he went to his neighbor's house to borrow a blender. The dog ripped off an entire portion of his scalp.

Kenny now faces months of skin reconstructive surgery to graft skin back to scalp.
