LAKEWOOD, MONMOUTH COUNTY NJ - 3 PIT BULLS WITH NO COLLARS ON CAME OUT OF NOWHERE AND BEGAN ATTACKING A 12-YEAR-OLD BOY PLAYING IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD
A 12-year-old boy was treated at a hospital after he was attacked by 3 PIT BULLS while playing outside his home. The attack happened on the afternoon of April 6 about 5pm. The boy had stopped to rest when suddenly the 3 large pit bulls were there biting him.
He managed to run to his house stumbling and falling with the dogs nipping at his heels and had multiple bite marks and lacerations.
One pit was captured soon and put into a police car, while Lakewood AC and Monmouth County AC spent three hours capturing the other two. A Lakewood Animal Control person was also bitten in the process.
The pit bulls had no collars on and no one seems to know at this time where they came from so the boy had to begin rabies treatment.
