Two injured breaking up dogfight in Manchester

MANCHESTER - Two people were bitten on their hands as they tried to break up a fight between two dogs that were being walked by their owners Monday, police said.

The yellow Labrador retriever and a pitbull were walking on opposite sides of Jewett Street when the pitbull broke free from its owner, ran across the street and attacked the other dog, Manchester police Lt. Mike Hurley said.

The owner of the pitbull was trying to separate the dogs and was joined by a passerby who saw the dogs fighting.

Both men received bite wounds to their hands and the Lab was also taken to a veterinarian for treatment. Animal control was investigating and would decide whether charges are warranted, Hurley said.
