TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Three men living in Taichung were assaulted and injured by two pit bulls on Thursday (Sept. 3), marking the second bloody attack by the aggressive dog breed in the country within the past fortnight.

CCTV footage shows two pit bulls attacking a man, surnamed Pan (潘), 52, after he stepped out of a house in Dali District. Pan fell to the ground but managed to stand up again. Two men in their 60s helped Pan but were also attacked by the two dogs.

The two dogs left after the assault and the three victims were taken to hospital for treatment. Pan suffered multiple dog bite wounds to his hands, back, and knees. The other two victims had bruises on their legs.

Media reported the two dogs were raised by a man living in the same neighborhood but were not properly confined at his property. The two dogs were later sent to a temporary shelter out of safety concerns.    [FULL  STORY]
