UPDATE @ 10:15 p.m.:
Three people were taken to hospitals, including one suffering from critical injuries, following a dog attack Monday night at the Pawsitive Warriors Rescue in New Carlisle.
The attack happened around 7:45 p.m. at the animal shelter, 1833 N. Dayton Lakeview Road.
“We responded out here to a dog attacking multiple workers and three people were transported to the hospital, one being in critical condition right now,” Clark County Sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Elliott said.
Elliott said the wounds were to the victims’ upper body and extremities.
Rescue founder Molly Murray said the 2- to 3-year-old male pit bull named “Mayhem” was being taken to a veterinarian to be euthanized after he bit at least three people.
Murray said the dog showed no signs of aggression before Monday night’s attack, and that he had been rescued from a drug bust along with a female and some pups.
At least three people have been taken to hospitals from a dog attack in Monday evening in New Carlisle.
Clark County Sheriff’s deputies and medics were dispatched to the 1800 block of North Dayton Lakeview Road about 7:44 p.m. on the report.
Medics on scene asked for more help in dealing with at least two victims. At least one CareFlight unit was dispatched.
We’re also hearing that someone has the dog, but deputies have been given the order to “put the dog down” if they have to do so.
We have a crew headed to New Carlisle. We will update this developing report as we learn more.
