Lubbock, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man is recovering Saturday at Covenant after he was attacked by a pit bull. The Lubbock County Sheriff's Office says Troy Luttrell, a retired Lubbock firefighter, was attacked by a dog on his property.
The attack happened Friday in the 8800 block of Private Road 7355 on a lot owned by Luttrell. Luttrell tells us he went to put a note on a trailer, but as he got out of his truck the pit bull went under a chain linked fence and attacked him.
