3 dogs attack a 10-year-old boy in South Seattle

On 12/4/10, at approximately 1:15 p.m., neighborhood children were playing outside when one of them kicked a ball over a fence at a house in the 4200 block of  S. Kenny St.

A 10- year- old boy climbed over the six foot fence to retrieve the ball. There were 4 bull mastiffs in the back yard.  Three of the dogs attacked the child and bit him on both arms, neck, and head.  The child suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. Seattle Fire Department responded and subsequently transported the child to Harborview Medical Center for treatment. Animal Control responded and impounded the dogs.
