16-Year-Old Attacked by Pit Bulls

While walking down the street a 16-year-old girl was attacked by two pit bulls. A male pit bull began biting her leg as the female dog latched on and wouldn’t let go. Two people who saw what was going on tried to help the girl by attempting to pull her away from the dogs. The girl was taken to Dyersburg Regional Medical Center where she received treatment. Her wounds consisted of bite marks, scratches, puncture wounds and bleeding. One deep wound had to have a suture, while the others were too jagged for stitches. Both pit bulls were caught and taken to the Dyersburg/Dyer County Humane Society.
