A pit bull attacked its owner and another relative on Saturday in Miami, officials said.
A witness who identified himself as Mr. Williams described the incident to local media.
“When the dog bit him, [the owner] went to get a towel, but the dog had a taste of his blood,” he told WSVN, “and his granddaddy was outside, and the dog attacked his granddaddy. It tore his face off.”
One of the victims was transported to a local hospital by paramedics, while the other was treated at the scene.
Both injuries are reportedly not life-threatening.
The dog was taken by animal control officials and there was no word on what happened to the canine.
