CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Two people are taken to the hospital after they say the family pit bull turned on them.

Police say the dog started acting aggressive inside the home on Northeast 7th Place.  Two people suffered bites to their hands.

The dog then circled outside the home for about an hour until animal control officers were able to safely contain it.
