TWO PIT BULLS are in the custody of Carroll County animal control after they attacked a man Sunday.
The man was taken to a Roanoke hospital for treatment because of the seriousness of his injuries.
According to interim Carroll County administrator Nikki Cannon, the man was attacked while he was visiting one of his rental properties on Hanging Tree Road in the Hillsville area.
One of the dogs belonged to the tenant; the second dog was a stray. The people inside the home helped get the dogs off the man.
Cannon would not release the man’s name or age.
Officials are awaiting test results on the dogs.
The incident is still under investigation.
