Gretchen Pressley, the community relations manager for the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region and Pueblo Animal Services, said several calls were received Monday about 8 p.m. regarding the attack, which reportedly occurred on an unspecified block of Frontier Street in the county.
The dogs were loose and attacked a male as he was walking down the street. The extent of the victim’s injuries are unknown, but he was transported from the scene by an ambulance. The victim’s name was not released, nor was his age.
The dogs were impounded as animal law enforcement investigated the incident Monday night and Tuesday morning. Pressley said the owner of the two dogs was charged with two counts of unlawful ownership of a dangerous animal and two counts of dog at large.
The owner, whose name was not released, has agreed to euthanize the two dogs; a male and a female that were described by Pressley as “pit bull-type dogs.”
The dogs will be held at Pueblo Animal Services until they are euthanized.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing
