According to ABC7, a teenage girl was hospitalized in serious condition after she was attacked by several dogs in Thousand Oaks Sunday afternoon, authorities say.
Authorities say at least five large dogs attacked the 16-year-old girl at a home in the 100 block of Manzanita Lane around 3:30 p.m.
The dogs were still attacking her when crews arrived, but they were scared off by the first responders, according to the Ventura County Fire Department. Five of the dogs are Cane Corsos.
The girl was taken to a hospital in serious condition, but she is expected to survive.
VCFD added that the girl and dogs live at the same home.
Video from the scene showed animal control officers and authorities taking the dogs away from the scene. The dogs are now in the custody of L.A. County Animal Control.
We wish a quick recovery for the victim of this incident during this very difficult time.
When individuals are harmed or killed in Animal attack incidents, a dog owner has an obligation to restrain his or her animal for public safety. As long as you are on private or public property legally, the dog owner may be held responsible. Skilled legal representation from a dog bite attorney is typically a must in these situations.
