A man in San Antonio was hospitalized after being attacked by two loose dogs on the northeast side of town early Tuesday. The incident occurred in the 9500 block of Heidelberg Street near Randolph Boulevard, prompting a call to the San Antonio Police around 11:30 a.m. The 46-year-old victim was sitting in his yard, smoking a cigarette when the dogs, let out by a house guest from the neighboring house, rushed towards him, crossing over a fence and attacking him. He sustained bites to his upper body, arms, and torso, requiring immediate medical attention. The victim is currently undergoing emergency surgery to treat his injuries.
Following the attack, City of San Antonio Animal Care Services took custody of both dogs and will be conducting an investigation. The dogs, identified as Pit Bull mixes, will be placed in quarantine for a period of 10 days. The owner of the dogs, a 54-year-old man who is currently out of town, will face charges for the attack, including causing serious bodily injuries, which is considered a third-degree felony.
