GRAYSON CO., TX -- A teenager is in serious condition following a pit bull attack. Her boyfriend told first responders he had to shoot the dog about five times before it released its grip on the girl.
First responders say it happened at a home in the 8100 block of FM 697 near Whitewright. They say a pit bull lunged and attacked a 16-year-old girl at her boyfriend's house.
Her boyfriend had to shoot the gun multiple times before the dog released its grip and died. The girl was flown to a Dallas hospital with injuries on her face and arm.
"This was an adult dog that was given to them by a friend,” says James Dixon, assistant Tom Bean fire chief. “They didn't have any history on the dog or its previous circumstance so they didn't know much about it at the time."
Animal control took the dog Tuesday. The Sheriff's Office says they are not investigating the case.
