A pit bulldog that attacked a man on a bicycle on Labor Day is still “at large” and considered “extremely dangerous,” according to Summerville Police.
Police and EMS were dispatched to 50 Eleanor Avenue, off Highland Avenue, to talk with Samuel Knight who was attacked while riding his bicycle around 8:20 a.m.
Knight was near the intersection of Highland Avenue and C Street when a white pit bulldog mix ran out and grabbed his left leg.
“I did observe his pant leg to have a very large hole and a very distinct imprint with visible puncture wounds to Mr. Knight’s leg,” Summerville Police Officer Matt Pritchard stated.
Officers and Chattooga Animal Control immediately started searching for the dog.
“At the time of this report, the dog has not been located and is still at large and considered to be extremely dangerous,” Officer Pritchard stated. “Any sightings of an animal matching this description are to be reported to the Summerville Police Department. Do not try and approach the animal.”
