The boy’s nose was partially severed and his upper lip was injured during the attack. He was treated at Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton.
Jim Milender, the owner of the 2-year-old pit bull, has been ordered to quarantine his dog for 10 days.
Milender’s wife, who is currently unnamed, was watching the boy and three other children at the time of the attack. Milender told the Tribune his wife was in another room when the boy was attacked.
