NEW BEDFORD - Authorities say a UMass student might need plastic surgery on his face after being attacked by three pitbulls in New Bedford.
Police say the 22-year-old student was attacked while walking near County and Robeson Streets on Friday night. He sustained serious arm and facial injuries, including losing part of his lip in the attack.
He was being treated at Saint Luke's Hospital. Information on his condition was not immediately available Sunday.
Police say two of the three dogs are being quarantined, and that the third is with its owners. Police say the dogs belong to a 19-year-old and her mother.
Police are investigating. No charges had been filed as of Sunday.
If the dogs would have been registered, tagged, and they had pictures of the dog and the owner they may be able to identify the offenders.
Just a month before New Bedford was considering bsl, maybe it will pass now???
