Should the pit bull be put down?
HAYDEN, Idaho-- A six-year-old boy from Hayden is recovering from a pit-bull attack. Family members said Charlie Stone was riding his bike near Drover Drive when the leashed dog bit him Tuesday night.
The attack left bite marks on Stone’s neck. Stone’s father, Nathan, estimated that the puncture wounds are five inches deep.
Records showed Charlie was bit by a dog named Samson. Police documents showed that Samson was on a leash with a choke collar.
“The fist thought that went though my mind is one more second of, if the dog shook his head, what if that lady wasn't there? Just the worst things come to your mind as a parent,” said Nathan Stone.
Authorities said the pit bull was in quarantine and may be put down.
"I would like to see the dog put down. I will probably take legal action against them,” said Stone.
KREM 2 News tried to reach out to the dog's owners, but those calls were not returned.
Investigators’ records show the dog did have its shots.
