A Miller High School student was hospitalized last week after being attacked by a pack of five dogs.
According to KRIS-TV, the incident occurred Wednesday on the 400 block of Old Robstown Road as the 15-year-old student was walking home from school.
Details on the boy’s injuries were limited, but the attack was severe enough that the child had to be hospitalized.
All five dogs involved were picked up from their home on Friday. They will be quarantined for ten days to determine if any of them have rabies. All five dogs were identified by Corpus Christi Animal Care Services as American Staffordshire Terrier Mixes.
It is unclear if the owner of the dog will face charges.
