Animal Control seizes dog that broke chain, attacked Rock Hill child

Animal Control seized a dog Thursday after it broke free of its chain and bit a child walking in a Rock Hill neighborhood.

A woman was walking on Bose Avenue with her 9-year-old daughter at about 7:30 a.m. when the animal pulled the chain out of the ground and charged at them. The dog bit the girl on the right arm and backside, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

The dog’s owner wasn’t home, but a roommate was able to get the dog under control and back inside.

The child was taken by EMS to Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.

York County Animal Control responded and seized the dog. The report does not list its breed.

The owner was charged with violation of leash law.
