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.
