On Friday July 12, 2019 at 11:29am we received a call for assistance at a convenience store at 7757 Highway 75 in the Palmerdale community. The caller reported that a 4 year old boy had been attacked by a dog. The caller reported that the dog was in the truck with the child when the dog suddenly attacked the child. The child’s mother attempted to get the dog off of the child and was assisted by several citizens. They were finally able to get the dog off the child but the child suffered severe injuries. The child had to be airlifted to Children’s hospital for treatment. Animal Control will take custody of the dog. This incident is still under investigation.
