ODESSA – Another person has been attacked by a pit bull in Odessa.

Odessa Police tell NewsWest 9 that Animal Control officers were called to the attack in the 3800 block of North Everglade on Thursday afternoon.

A 12-year-old male told authorities that he was walking down the street when he was approached by a gray female pit bull that bit him on his left hip.

Officials say the child had a visible wound but it couldn't be determined if it was an actual bite.

The child's parent was called out to the scene and no medical treatment was needed.

The owner of the pit bull was cited for a dog at large and the dog has been placed under quarantine for 10 days.
