A Macon police officer was called to Clinton Road and Shurling Drive in response to a person attacked by two dogs. The victim stated he was walking up Clinton Road when two pit bull dogs ran into the road and attacked him, biting his arms and legs and severing the artery in his left arm.

Witnesses rushed to his aid and tried to help control the bleeding. Shortly after the officer’s arrival the two dogs returned, charging up the hill at the officer, who tried to back away from the charging dogs. Realizing they were gaining ground quickly, he drew his gun and fired one round, striking the first dog in the head.

After the first dog fell, the second dog ran into the woods. The victim was transported to the Medical Center by EMS. Animal Control took the deceased dog into custody. The owner caught the second dog and was cited for the unrestrained animals. He was told to keep the second dog inside the house for the night after agreeing to take the dog to Animal Control today to be quarantined and tested.
