Pit bull attack sends jogger to hospital ER

SoVaNow.com / July 03, 2017
A dog attacked a 15-year-old jogger on Ash Avenue in South Boston on Saturday morning, biting her on the thigh and wrist and causing an avulsion fracture of the wrist.

The girl was taken to Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital’s emergency room, where she was treated and released.

The dog had gotten free of its tether to its house.

The owner surrendered the dog, a pit bull about five years old, to Halifax County Animal Control, which indicated it would be euthanized. The dog was current on its rabies vaccines.
