KXLY'S ALLIE NOROTN IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT. SHE'S
LIVE ON THE SKYDECK. ALLIE, ONE OF THE VICTIMS WAS
AN 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL?
NADINE, POLICE SAY THAT SHE WAS SEVERLEY INJURED AND
WILL HAVE TO STAY THE NIGHT IN THE HOSPITAL.
AN ADULT MALE WAS ALSO HOSPITALIZED FOR SERIOUS INJURIES.
AT LEAST TWO OTHER PEOPLE WERE BIT AS WELL IN A SCENE
NEIGHBORS DESCRIBE AS CHAOS.
AN 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL AND MAN HOSPITALIZED AFTER THEIR
NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULLS WENT ON BITING SPREE LATE THIS
AFTERNOON. WITNESSES TOLD POLICE THAT KIDS IN THE
NEIGHBORHOOD LET THE DOGS OUT OF THE BACKYARD. THE
DOGS ATTACKED THE 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL FIRST... WHEN NEIGHBORS
SAW WHAT WAS HAPPENING THE SCENE QUICKLY ESCALATED.
As soon as the neighbors were able to get the dog
off one person, the dog would go after another person
so it was an ongoing chaotic scene
JASON CONNERLY CAME OUTSIDE TO SEE HIS NEIGHBOR PINNED
TO THE GROUND.
"His face was torn up, his arm was torn up, he had
SHORTLY AFTER THE DOGS WENT AFTER HIM. CONNERLY WAS
BIT ON THE HANDS AND LEGS... HE SAYS HE HIT THE DOGS
WITH A SHOVEL UNTIL THEY WENT AWAY.
"The female, the one that attacked she has progressivly
got more and more since my neighbor got the dog.
POLICE AND NEIGHBORS CORNERED THE DOGS UNTIL ANIMAL
CONTROL ARRIVED. THE WOMAN WHO OWNS THE DOGS SAID
SHE JUST GOT THE FEMALE DOG A MONTH AGO... THE ONE
THAT WAS REPORTEDLY THE MOST VICIOUS.
You are the owner though? You own the dogs? The dog
I found, somebody found her and gave her to me. Oh
really? Yes, all I did was give her shots.
SHE SAYS SHE'S ANGRY BECAUSE SHE WASN'T EVEN HOME
WHEN IT HAPPENED.... BUT NOW FACES LEGAL CONSEQUENCES.
SCRAPS has the pitbulls in
custody they'll do an investigation
on it and they'll determine what charges.
THERE IS A COUPLE OUTCOMES FOR THESE DOGS. THEY COULD
REQUIRE A DANGEROUS DOG PERMIT AND INSURANCE...
BUT THEY COULD ALSO BE PUT DOWN. AGAIN THAT ALL DEPENDS
ON THE OUTCOME OF THE INVESTIGATION.
