Officers with the DeFuniak Springs Police responded to 725 US Highway 90 West this morning in reference to aggressive dogs. The complainant advised that she was charged by two pit bulls who attempted to bite her while taking the trash out. The Officer began looking for the dogs and while approaching a mailbox, they charged at him. The Officer was able to fend them off, but one of the dogs lunged again. The Officer punched the dog in the head and the dog retreated. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control responded and took custody of the dogs. The Officer sustained a cut from one of the dog’s teeth during the incident and was treated at a medical facility. It is unknown who the owner of the dogs is at this time.
