FORT WORTH — A man had walked his southeast Fort Worth neighborhood for years without any problems from dogs. Until Tuesday morning.
A pit bull terrier mauled the 61-year-old man in a vacant field as he strolled home from a neighborhood convenience store.
“He charged straight at me,” the man said Wednesday afternoon from home, where he was nursing his injured hand and leg. “If there had been a rock or something, I could have done something.”
But a 76-year-old man, whom police described as a good Samaritan, came to victim’s rescue. The man heard the attack and managed to pull the dog off victim’s left arm.
The injured was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth with injuries to his left hand and right leg. He was released shortly after the incident.
The good Samaritan, whom authorities did not identify, told police that he heard screams and thought someone was getting beaten up.
Animal-control officers captured the dog and quarantined it. The owner was issued several citations.
