A Minneapolis man was attacked by two pit bulls on Friday, Fox 9 News said.
Eugene Dickerson said he was walking along 1600 block of Morgan Avenue North in Minneapolis when he passed by the two pit bulls, WCCO said.
The two pit bulls were in a neighbors front yard when one bit through its leash. The dogs attacked Dickerson, Fox News said.
Dickerson said he tried to ward off the dogs with his cane but he fell to the ground. One of the dogs took a large bite out of his leg, WCCO said.
The owners told Fox 9 News Dickerson must have provoked the dogs."If you are waving a cane and actually hit a dog, I probably would have bitten him too," Shalisa Jones.
The police brought the dogs to the Minneapolis Animal Care and Control Shelter and will most likely be put down, Fox 9 News said.
