A woman who said she was bitten by two dogs in a Milford park recently is hoping that the dogs’ owner will come forward to provide information so that she can deal with her injuries.
Woman reportedly attacked by two pit bulls in Milford park
A woman told police she was recently bitten by a pit bull while walking her dog through a Milford park.
The woman said she was walking her dog through Eisenhower Park when two pit bulls started fighting with it.
Maureen Noyes needed four stitches after she was bitten trying to protect her dog Penny and son, after two pit bulls started fighting with Penny.
She said all she wants do to is to speak with the pit bulls’ owner so that she can find out about their vaccination information.
She said while she was at the park with her family, a man with two pit bull breed dogs came up to them.
“One was off the leash and the other was on the leash, and he said ‘she’s fine,'” Noyes said.
But Penny and the pit bulls started fighting, so Noyes jumped in the middle to protect her 2-year-old and Penny.
“As soon as I was on the ground” she said she told the man to watch his dog.
Noyes said one of the pit bulls bit her on the face and neck area.
“I didn’t know I was bit at all. I really didn’t feel anything. I got up and saw blood on my son’s face, got worried and then realized it was coming from me,” she said.
A passer-by called police, who are now investigating the incident, but the owner of the pit bulls left the scene before exchanging information.
Noyes said the man asked if she was OK, and said “this has never happened before.”
She said she does not blame the pit bulls or the man, but she just wants to find out if the dogs have had their shots so she doesn’t have to worry about something like rabies.
“It would just be nice to hear ‘sorry,'” she added.
In Milford, there is a law requiring pet owners to keep their dogs on leashes, even in public parks.
