Grandma bitten by pit bulls
Woman protecting 1-yearold grandchild in stroller
An elderly woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter were attacked by two pit bulls on Spillers Drive late Monday morning.
The woman was walking her granddaughter in a stroller when the two pit bulls reportedly ran toward them, barking. According to 1st Lt. Mark Mitchell with the Newton County Sheriff’s Department, the dogs first went after the child and her grandmother swung the stroller around behind herself to keep the child safe. When she did so she was allegedly bitten on the ankle and calf.
