Pitbulls Attack Owner

Two dogs, described as “pitbull types,” attacked their owner in his home. The 34-year-old victim, who had serious head and arm injuries, was initially taken to Tauranga Hospital but was transferred to Waikato Hospital for specialist care late this morning. Ambulance officers called police who shot both dogs dead, saying they were too dangerous and posed a risk to anyone who got near them. Senior Sergeant Rob Glencross, of Tauranga police, said the man's injuries were "pretty horrific".
