A Pit Bull is in the custody of animal control after biting a little boy. The incident happened Monday at the 700 block of Sims Street in Bryan.
Animal control says several children were playing when the Pit Bull broke the leash attached to its collar and charged toward them.
The children tried to run inside their houses, but the Pit Bull bit one nine-year-old boy, puncturing his thigh and lacerating his calf.
The boy was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown. The owner of the dog was ticketed. Animal control says the owner did have current shot records for the dog.
