CHARLOTTE — Two people were hospitalized after being “bitten pretty badly” by dogs in University City Monday morning, CMPD says.
The owner of the dogs was walking the animals on a leash near Mallard Glen Drive around 9 a.m. Monday, when the dogs escaped from her and ran out of sight, according to CMPD.
The loose dogs first attacked one female. The first victim’s family member showed up to intervene and was also attacked.
A witness told Channel 9′s Dan Matics he ran to a nearby daycare to ask for help, and that the aftermath was “traumatizing.”
