An eight-year-old boy was mauled by his family’s pit bull dog yesterday, according to Muskogee County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Michael Mahan.

The boy, who was just out of school, was bitten on the head by his family’s gray pit bull at 8908 S. 74th St. W. in Oktaha around 4 p.m. The family applied pressure to the wound and called 911.

Muskogee County EMS and the Sheriff’s Office responded. The juvenile was conscious and was transported in emergency status to Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa.

The owner of the dog put it down, according to Mahan.
