HOQUIAM, Wash. - Two children and a babysitter were attacked by the family dog Friday afternoon, while a two year old was inside the home. Hoquiam Sgt. Jef Salstrom was the first to arrive to the fenced yard in the 2300 block of Sumner Avenue just after 4 Friday. He reported seeing a large mastiff type dog biting the head of an 8 year old boy, a 15 year old babysitter, and a three year old girl were taking shelter in an open shed in the yard.
Salstrom said he used his tazer at first because the boy was in the line of fire for lethal force, however when the dog began to charge at him he said the wires got caught up in bushes. He fired one round at the dog with his weapon, which gave him time get the boy to safety but when he returned for the girls, the dog charged him again. Salstrom said he fired two more rounds at the dog, which staggered and ran behind a shed.
Hoquiam Fire Captain Tim Smith told officers on scene that the boy's injuries were "extensive," all three children were transported to Community Hospital for treatment. The babysitter, who's name we are not releasing, said on facebook that only the boy received stitches for his injuries.
Salstrom said after the children were removed from the yard, Raintree Vet was called in to euthanize the dog at the owner's request. There was also a two year old boy inside the home at the time of the attack, but he was not involved.
Hoquiam Police Chief Jeff Myers tells us "the dog is owned by the residents and parents of the three youngest children. Apparently the dog is normally kept inside, but somehow escaped the home and possibly became enraged by the children jumping on the trampoline in the yard."
