Two Pit Bulls Attack Titusville Police Officer

TITUSVILLE, Florida --  A Titusville Police Officer responding to a 9-1-1 hang up call was attacked by two mix-breed pit bulls that reside at 60 Sky Lane in Titusville, Florida. 

The police officer was approaching the house when the two canines charged at her from the carport area of the home.  The two dogs teamed-up their attack on the officer - biting her legs and arm several times. 

Police say that the police officer kept her composure and managed to reach the safety of her patrol vehicle where she summoned the assistance of other officers and medical attention. 

Officers arriving on scene observed the pit bulls in the middle of the road dragging chains of 8-to-10 feet in length that were attached to their collars by padlocks.

The injured officer was transported to Parrish Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.  She has been released and is at home recovering from her injuries.

Brevard Animal Control has taken custody of the canines and is conducting an investigation into the attack.
