RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - The owner of a pit bull was given two citations, after the dog attacked a seven-year-old boy in Racine.
Police said the Kenosha boy was playing at a cousin's house last Friday when the dog was disturbed by noise from the youngsters -- and it ran to the boy and attacked him.
The boy's mother and a man pulled the dog away, and the mother was treated at a hospital for a puncture wound to one of her hands.
The injured boy was taken to a Racine hospital, and then to Milwaukee Children's Hospital. There was no immediate word on his condition.
The pit bull's owner was cited for having an unlicensed and unvaccinated animal.
