Two Texas children have suffered dog bite attacks east of Conroe in Montgomery County, according to Montgomery County Animal Control. The 5-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl were reportedly bitten within a day of each other. The 5-year-old was attacked while walking in the street on the evening of May 30, and two witnesses aided the child, who was left with six different dog bite wounds on his side, back and legs. He was taken to the hospital and treated. The girl who was bitten was riding her bike on the morning of May 31 when two loose dogs began to chase her. She received injuries to her neck after falling from her bike but has since been released from the hospital to recover at home.
When cases like these are tried, the court can order the dog to be seized if the dog is determined to have caused bodily harm or death. According to the Texas Health and Safety Code, the dog can be put to death under certain circumstances. So far, all three animals involved in the attacks against these children are in custody.
