On November 16 at approximately 4:35 p.m., the Calvert County Control Center received a 911 call in reference to hearing gunshots and people screaming. A second phone call was received from a man who stated that he had shot a dog that was attacking his granddaughter in the 700 block of White Sands Drive in Lusby. A seven year-old girl was bitten in the face/neck area by a pit-bull type dog and was taken to Calvert Memorial Hospital for treatment.
One pit-bull type dog, blue with a white chest, was transported to the Mid-Atlantic Animal Specialty Hospital (MASH) on Old Town Road in Huntingtown where he succumbed to his injuries. Animal Control Officer Sheckels is still investigating this bite incident and is still attempting to locate the owner(s) for the deceased dog. The second dog, which ran from the area, is described as a pit-bull type breed that is white with either brown or black spots.
