FORT MYERS, Fla.- Animal control officers are investigating after two dogs attacked a man who was walking along Wright Street in Fort Myers Sunday morning.
The victim, Joshua Robinson, told WINK News he was walking with his fiance to pick his children up from their grandmother's house when the pit bulls suddenly attacked.
He described turning away from the dogs, hitting and punching them until they finally gave up. Robinson was transported to the hospital Sunday for a bite wound, but was later released.
Fort Myers police had to shoot a beanbag at the animals after they charged at several people, including an officer, according to reports.
The dogs' owner has been ordered to keep the animals inside for ten days while Domestic Animal Services investigates the circumstances surrounding the bite. Officers cited the owner for not being up to date with rabies vaccininations and licensing requirements.
The victim plans to pursue threatening and menacing charges, which carry a fine of $250.
