Two pit bulls that reportedly attacked a 4-year-old boy are set to be euthanized after a 10-day quarantine.
“Since they have bit somebody, we have to hold them for 10 days for observation,” Roane County Animal Control Officer Josh Strickland said. “After that, we can put them to sleep.”
Annette Broshears called 911 on Monday just before 1 p.m. and reported one of her dogs had bitten off her son’s ear. The Roane County Sheriff’s Office, medical personnel and animal control responded to the home at 542 Emory Heights Road.
