A 9-year-old boy was attacked by a pit bull about 7 p.m. Thursday in the 2200 block of Talisman Street, police said.
The gray pit bull, previously tied in front of a residence, broke free and clamped onto the boy’s left forearm, breaking both bones in two places, according to a police brief released Friday.
The owner of the dog was not at home at the time of the attack, and the dog was impounded by the city’s animal control officers.
Pits are no more agressive than any other dog. A dachshund would have done the same thing.
