Charges Expected in Pit Bull Attack

Charges are expected in at least one dog attack that occurred in south Lubbock over the weekend.

On Saturday morning, a pitbull attacked a two-year-old boy at his home. According to Lubbock Police, a neighbor heard screams coming from the backyard and called for help. Reportedly, the child's father was inside the home, unaware of the incident.

Later that same day, a pitbull-chow mix bit four children at a park at 24th and Frankford.

Authorities say all five children will recover, however, each of the animals will be subject to Dangerous Dog Hearings in the coming weeks.

This series of dog attacks has Animal Control officials urging caution, especially as we head into the summer.
