9 Aug 2017, Pretoria: In another vicious dog attack, three children were critically injured and currently in ICU at the Kalafong Hospital in Atteridgeville. The incident happened on Sunday. It is reported that the animals weren't properly confined, and attacked the children as they played harmlessly in the street.
One of the children, a 6-year-old boy, has undergone surgery on his spine, after his liver was damaged during the vicious attack. The other two children are in intensive care and are also undergoing surgeries - however the extent of their injuries is not known.
It is not known what has happened to the dogs or the owner responsible for the attack.
This comes after a spate of dog attacks in recent months with the argument for pitbull ownership once again in the spotlight.
