Dogs maul 8-year-old on Wilson Street

An 8-year-old boy was taken to the hospital with lacerations to his head, neck and arms this evening after he was mauled by two dogs, according to Chattanooga Police Sgt. Jerri Weary.

She said the dogs were feuding and the child, who was visiting the home at 2012 Wilson St., got between them and was bitten.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening and no charges will be filed, Weary said.

I was walking a couple of weeks ago in the east side of town and noticed a pack of wild dogs going up the street and they was barking and grawling at anybody come by either walking down the street or driving.

Grrrrrrrr...........yes they even had enough bark in them to show me some teeth or in there case a nice set of fangs.
