Two boys, 5 and 7, hospitalized after being attacked by pit bulls in West Palm Beach | www.palmbeachpost.com

5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old boy were hospitalized Tuesday after they were attacked by two pit bulls in West Palm Beach, an Animal Care and Control spokesperson said.

Dave Walesky said the boys were playing in the front yard of a 45th Street home when the dogs escaped from the fenced-in backyard and attacked them. One was bit in the face and the other was bit in the arm.

The incident took place at about 5 p.m. near the intersection with Australian Avenue.

Animal Care and Control has the two dogs and will conduct a 10-day dangerous dog investigation. The dogs are registered as pit bulls, but Walesky said they look like mixed-breed.

If the dogs are classified as dangerous, they will be returned to the owner with strict mandates.
