A pit bull terrier that attacked his owner’s son in Spring Valley, New York had attacked another visitor to the house three days earlier. The son was 9 years old and the visitor was 4.
The attacks in New York came during National Dog Bite Prevention Week. The 16-month old pit bull attacked the 4 year old on Thursday when his mother brought him with her to visit his friend. The dog attacked his owner’s son less than 48 hours later. The second attack created a long gash in the 9 year old’s forhead and tore his tear duct.
After the first attack, the dog was ordered to be quarantined inside his owner’s home. Following the second attack, the dog was taken by officers to an animal shelter where he was euthanized.
