Animal control takes pit bull into custody in Fitchburg

From Worcester Telegram & Gazette

A pit bull that authorities said attacked a Leominster man Monday night was taken into custody by an animal control officer yesterday.

According to police, a 45-year-old Leominster man was on Oak Hill Lane with his dog when he was attacked by a pit bull.

Mark Gilbert, the owner of three pit bulls who lives at 32 Oak Hill Lane, let his dogs out in the area without a leash, according to police. Mr. Gilbert told police he usually puts his dogs on a leash, but did not this time because he did not see anyone in the area.

While the dogs were out, Mr. Gilbert saw Patrick E. Godley down the street. The three pit bulls ran toward him and one of them attacked him, police said. Mr. Godley suffered cuts on his legs, chest and head. The incident occurred about 9:15 p.m. Monday. The injuries were not life-threatening. Police continue to investigate.
