A seven year-old Tomah boy who received more than 100 stitches and staples to his head, neck, and arms has returned home after spending four days in the hospital following a vicious pit bull attack.
The boy was riding his bike in his driveway when a stray pit bull suddenly attacked and latched on to his neck. His mother was able to fight the dog off and bring her child to safety while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
According to the boy’s family, the dog roamed the neighborhood and they sometimes fed it. Authorities have since euthanized it.

The owner of the Argentine mastiff that attacked a Denver news anchor on the air has been cited by animal control. He was issued citations for violating a leash law and for not having the dog properly vaccinated.
Last week the anchor had the dog, its owner, and a firefighter who had rescued the dog the day before from an icy lake on her show. When she knelled down at the end of the segment to get closer to the dog, the three year-old, 85 pound animal lunged and bit her on the face.
She was taken to the hospital where she underwent reconstructive surgery. She is expected to return to work in a few weeks.
