A Mobile man was taken to the hospital with bites on both his legs after he was attacked by a pit bull Monday morning. The incident happened around 7:15 a.m. outside the man’s home on Riverside Drive.
It took animal control officers more than an hour to subdue the dog.
The victim was with his own dog when the incident happened.
Ellen Lursen, Director of the Mobile County Animal Shelter, said the pit bull was taken to the animal shelter. She said the dog will have to be moved immediately to a private veterinarian at the owner’s expense. The dog will be held for 10 days.
