Pit bull attack sends man to hospital

By Renee Dials, WALA

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.
Timothy Sealhorst is the dog’s owner. Sealhorst told FOX10 News he was asleep when the 1 1/2 year old pit bull got out. Sealhorst was issued two tickets and he'll have to appear in Municipal Court on November 12.
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.
