08/26/08: Pit Bull Pops Into Boys and Girls Club
Washington DC - Two children playing at a Northeast Boys and Girls Club were attacked by a pit bull that was brought into the building. The attack falls 6 days after a D.C. police officer shot and killed a pit bull that was mauling a 6-year old girl in Southeast D.C. The district commander said he is recommending the officers be awarded medals for saving the girl's life.
The incident at the Boys and Girls Club occurred after someone brought a pit bull into the building. The dog subsequently attacked a 10-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy playing basketball in the gym. The pit bull bit the back of the girl's head and attacked the boy's legs. A woman at the gym was also bitten when she tried to pull the dog off the children.
