UPDATE: From the Anne Arundel County Police Department:
On Sunday, August 18, 2013, at approximately 8:33 p.m., officers from the Southern District responded to the 4900 block of Filbert Drive in Shady Side for an aggressive animal.
Upon arrival, officers located three female victims. The first victim, a 29-year-old female, received non-life threatening injuries after being bitten on her arm and leg. She was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. Investigation revealed the 29-year-old female victim went to pet a 2-year-old Pit Bull/Labrador mix on a cable lead in the front yard of a residence when the dog bit her and a 15-year-old female, who attempted to stop the attack. The dog was able to slide out of its collar and cause a minor injury to the 15-year-old’s arm. She was treated by fire department personnel and released from the scene. In addition, a 56-year-old female also intervened and sustained a very minor injury before the dog ran off. She was also treated at the scene. The owners of the dog were able to contain the animal until Animal Control Officers arrived on scene and took possession of the dog. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
