13-Year-Old Boy Bit by Pit Bull

A 13-year-old boy, Javarious Davis, was attacked by a pit bull while playing basketball outside. Police said the 11-month-old pit bull escaped from a nearby fenced-in yard. Davis said he tried to run when he saw the dog coming toward him, but he fell. That's when the 13-year-old said, "The dog just snapped on my face." Davis lost part of his lower lip and had several stitches on his face and a bandage to cover an area under his shoulder. The pit bull was taken to Animal Control where it will be quarantined for 10 days before a decision is made about the dog's future.
