Dog Attacks Two Children at Queens Day Care Center
Queens, NY - In a developing story, two toddlers were recently attacked by a dog outside the Loving Arms Day Care Center in Queens. The dog, described by the police as either a rottweiler or a pit bull (rather difficult to confuse the two), followed an unidentified woman onto the porch of the center, where it bit a 2-year-old boy, whose lip, face and right shoulder were injured.
The day care operator chased the dog away, hitting it with a broom, but it attacked a 4-year-old boy outside, injuring his left arm. Both children were taken to St. John's Queens Hospital, where the younger one, Orion Kitt, was in serious but stable condition and the older one, Joshua Charles, was in stable condition. The dog was tranquilized and will be tested for rabies.
