Deputy Kills Pit Bull that Attacked Orange County Boy

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on July 15, 2010

A boy was playing outside in his yard recently when a pit bull attacked and injured him. The dog’s owner claimed he did now know how his dog got outside, saying, “We don’t know how he got out. Every door was closed, and I figure someone came here and let him out and forgot about him.”

The boy went to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released, and he is expected to make a full recovery. Orange County sheriff’s deputies investigating the attack were waiting for animal control officers to arrive when the dog became aggressive again and lunged at one of the deputies. The deputy reportedly fired two shots to defend himself, which killed the dog.

Fortunately, the boy will make a full recovery from his physical wounds, but the emotional wounds of a vicious dog attack last for a very long time.
