Akita Is Destroyed After Child Attack
An 8-year-old Minneapolis boy suffered serious injuries after being attacked by a dog that escaped from its yard Friday.
DeVonta Prince was walking to school before 8 a.m. when an Akita broke off its chain and attacked the boy, the Star Tribune reports.
Police say the attack was unprovoked, according to the Star Tribune.
The child spent more than three hours in surgery after the dog bit his head, torso and hands.
The dog was collected by Animal Control and destroyed upon consent of its owner, reports the Star Tribune.
