Welcome to Our Humble Home and Attacking Pit Bull
Colorado Springs, CO - Three people in Colorado Springs were attacked and injured by a pit bull, two of them treated at a local hospital. Two adults from Ohio arrived at a home, where they were planning on moving in with family members. The plan took a radical turn after being attacked by the household pit bull moments after their arrival.
The two adults entered the house through a garage door. Here they were greeted by a 2-year-old pit bull. It bit each of them in the lower legs. A woman who lived at the home received a minor bite as she tried to pull the dog away. The two people from Ohio were taken to a hospital to be treated for lacerations. Their first night in Colorado Springs was not a happy one.
