MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- A 29-year-old Bronx man was hospitalized after a large dog attacked him in the middle of the street on North Barry Avenue Sunday morning, according to the Village of Mamaroneck Police Department.
Before police responded to multiple 911 calls around 7:48 a.m., a bystander unsuccessfully tried to stop the dog, identified as a pit bull, with a large stick. The pit bull withstood several rounds of shots from a village police officer before releasing its bite, only to charge at the officer. The wounded dog was finally restrained by its owner and other responding officers using an animal snare.
No officers were injured, but the victim was taken to the hospital and treated for several bite wounds. He was later released.
The dog was taken to the Greenburgh Animal Hospital, where it was euthanized at the request of its owner.
