LANTANA, Fla. (AP) — Two pit bulls have been euthanized after authorities say they attacked a man in South Florida.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue reports that the dogs attacked a man in the driveway of a vacant Lantana home Thursday morning.

Officials say two neighbors heard the man’s cries for help and attempted to drive the dogs away without success. The dogs’ owner eventually came out of his home and was able to drag the animals away.

The victim was taken to Delray Medical Center for treatment.

The owner of the dogs turned them over to Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, which euthanized them.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the owner of the dogs would face charges.
