MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police say two people were injured earlier this week in a dog attack near the parking lot of Kid’s Unlimited.
Police say the victim, a 50-year-old woman, was preparing to put her two pit bull dogs in her car when two other pit bulls attacked her dogs.
The victim was bit as she tried to break up the fight between the dogs, and she received several stitches to her arm as a result. Another woman who had stopped to help the victim was also bitten and received treatment for injuries to her arm.
Medford Police officers were able to find the dogs’ owner, 51-year-old Shannon Wells, who told police that his two pit bull dogs had escaped from his yard without his knowledge. Wells was cited and released for Municipal Code Violation “Control of Dogs.” Jackson County Animal Control responded and seized Wells’ two pit bull dogs.
