Several adults were transported to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon after being attacked and bitten by a dog on Bailey’s Ct (off Norbeck Rd) in the Aspen Hill area. An older adult male was transported with Priority 1 trauma. Witnesses told ABC7 that “the dog kept biting the man’s legs and forearms and would not stop.” According to Chief Spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Pete Piringer, one person was also transported with Priority 2 injuries and two people were transported with Priority 3 injuries, all non life threatening.
According to ABC7, the dog has been signed over to Montgomery County Animal Services by its owners and will be euthanized. It is unclear if the dog was on a leash at the time of the attack.
