(KTUL) — Broken Arrow police say a first-grade student at Creekwood Elementary was attacked by a dog at a bus stop Friday morning.
According to witnesses, a 7-year-old girl was attacked by THREE PIT BULLS while waiting near a school bus stop. Witnesses say the dogs had pushed open a glass door of the residence they belonged in and escaped.
Two of the dogs were determined to be the aggressors. One of the dogs bit the child and the second one made an attempt, police say.
Several people in the area made efforts to free the child from the attack. Once she was carried from the scene, a nearby resident shot both of the dogs, killing one. The wounded dog was taken to the Broken Arrow Animal Shelter and later euthanized due to the injuries received from the gunshot.
The third dog was surrendered to the animal shelter and is currently being quarantined.
Police say the girl was taken to a local hospital to be treated for injuries. She is in stable condition.
The resident responsible for shooting the dogs will not be charged criminally, police say.
The owner of the dogs was cited for animal at large, failure to secure a vicious animal, and no rabies vaccination. The dog owner is cooperating with law enforcement and animal control officials, according to police.
