A man is dead after a fatal pit bull attack Saturday in Montgomery County.
It happened in Willis, just off I-45 on FM 1097.
Authorities say David McCurry went to a home inquiring about the dog because the owner had it for sale.
While McCurry, 41, and his 19-year-old female companion were looking at the pit bull, it broke free and attacked them.
The woman was able to get on the roof of her car and escape the animal. But the animal bit McCurry numerous times, including a fatal bite to the neck.
The owner, Piras Beseisso, was also injured while trying to restraing the dog.
Animal control took custody of the pit bull, which will be destroyed.
The case has been turned over to the Montgomery County District Attorney's office for possible criminal charges against the owner.
