SPRINGFIELD OH - OWNER OF SEVERAL PIT BULLS FLOWN TO HOSPITAL AFTER BEING ATTACKED WHEN HE TRIED TO BREAK UP A DOG FIGHT
Police were called to 1704 Hillside Avenue this afternoon after neighbors heard the man screaming. Reports indicate the man owns 4 or 5 dogs and was attempting to break up a fight among them when one attacked him. He was flown to a hospital.
The dogs are believed to be PIT BULLS and 2 were taken away by humane society officials. A neighbor who has done painting for the man inside the home says that he has had to ask the owner to put them away when he was there out of fear of being bitten. No citations will be issued in the incident and the health department will make a decision on what happens with the animals which are believed to be aggressive.
