A nine-year-old boy was hospitalized after he was attacked by two pit bulls in East Chicago, Indiana.
The pit bulls escaped their enclosure Wednesday afternoon and approached the boy, who lives in the neighborhood.
Police say he tried to avoid the pit bulls, but at least one of the dogs bit him in both legs.
The owner of the dogs got the animals under control after the incident, and brought them back home.
The boy’s condition is not known.
Police have not said if charges will be filed.
