Three Injured In Licking County Dog Attack

Officials in Licking County say three people are in the hospital with serious injuries after they were attacked by a dog. Two men and one woman were taken to a hospital with facial tears and punctures Wednesday night after the attack. West Licking Joint Fire District Battalion Chief Tom Bingham says there was some commotion in the Etna Township home Wednesday when the dog became a little wild. By the time authorities arrived, the three victims had run out of the house and locked the dog inside. Authorities aren't certain what breed the dog is. This week, state Senator Bill Beagle of Tipp City said he planned new legislation on vicious dogs, a year after the mauling death of a Dayton woman.
