Guts. Defined.

(MARYSVILLE) – A frightening story out of Marysville. Chad Bird, an area man was driving by an area park along Yuba and 14th…he sees three pitbulls attacking a teenager. He stops and gets out…runs over and starts wrestling the dogs off the victim.

The dogs team up on Bird now…he was taken to the hospital with several bite wounds and a pair of broken ankles. Officials say the dogs’ owner tried stopping the dogs but was unsuccessful…they only stopped when a neighbor hit one with a shovel. Both the teen and Bird were taken to the hospital.

The teen will be okay. The dogs were taken in by animal control officers…the owner will not be charged and can get the dogs back if she can pay for some fees. Bird says the teen would have been killed if no one helped out.
