Two Dogs Involved in Pittsfield Attack Sent to N.Y.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — One of the three pit bull dogs accused of attacking a 9-year-old Pittsfield boy has been euthanized while the others will be moved out of state.

The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/PF40Nk) reports that one dog was euthanized on Friday, while the other two will be relocated to a Schenectady, N.Y. home under settlement reached this week between the city and the animals’ owners.

The dogs are American Staffordshire terriers, one of several breeds referred to as pit bulls.

Police say the dogs attacked the boy June 11 as he and his mother entered a common area of the multi-family home they shared with the dogs’ owners.

The owners said just one dog was involved in the attack in which the victim suffered 35 tooth punctures and lost part of his scalp.
