HORIZON CITY — An 11-year-old boy is in stable condition after a pitbull attacked him Saturday evening.
This happened about 7 p.m. in an unincorporated area of Far East El Paso County north of I-10, at a home on the 13500 block of Misty Ct.
The sheriff's office says the boy was picking up his little brother from a neighbor's house.
They say when he entered the yard, the pitbull attacked, biting the boy's arms, legs and neck.
Investigators say they think the boy will recover and that animal services will pick up the dog Sunday.
