Five-year-old boy bitten by wolfdog

9-year-old, Chase Wittenberg, was noted as heroically saving his little brother, 5-year-old, Ty’s life after punching and stopping a wolf-dog from attacking him. The boys were visiting their grandfather in La Pine when the encounter happened with a neighbor’s 10-year-old wolf-dog hybrid in the home’s backyard. "Chase told us they were outside, they went to pet the dog and got attacked." Marcy Smith, a family friend, said that “Ty underwent a three-hour surgery Saturday night at St. Charles Medical Center-Bend and returned to his Bend home Sunday afternoon.” The 10-year-old wolf-dog mix was taken to the Humane Society of Central Oregon shelter in Bend, according to a news release from Deschutes County sheriff's Sgt. Scott Beard and Deputy Gary Barrett.
