9-year-old Omaha boy bitten by pit bull mix that was running loose – Omaha.com: OMAHA METRO

 

A 9-year-old boy was bitten by a pit bull mix and taken to an Omaha hospital after the attack Thursday.

Mark Langan, vice president of field operations for the Nebraska Humane Society, said the boy was attacked about 4:30 p.m. near 57th and Pratt Streets. He was taken to Children’s Hospital & Medical Center for wounds to his right shoulder and right shin.

The dog followed the boy into his house, where it was then locked in a bathroom, Langan said. Humane Society officials later took control of the dog.

The dog belongs to a neighbor, he said, and it was running loose with another pit bull. It is being held at the Humane Society, near 90th and Fort Streets.

The other loose pit bull has not been found, but “there is no indication that the public is in any danger,’’ Langan said.

Humane Society officials plan to cite the attacking dog’s owner with harboring a dangerous animal. Police are still trying to track down the owner.

“Yet another sad case of an irresponsible dog owner,’’ Langan said.
