NEWPORT-Greg Daniels, 18, said a pit bull bit his leg while he was riding his bicycle up Carson Springs Road, on Dec. 31, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

Daniels said he was riding his bike, when at 11:30 a.m., several dogs came out in the road and got in front of him, Sgt. Tony Whitten reported.

He said a brown, fully-grown pit bull came up to him and bit him on his right lower leg. The victim had two holes that were bleeding when Sgt. Whitten reached him at his residence.

Animal Control found the dog and its owner. The owner allegedly said he could not have a dog that would bite a kid, so he gave up his rights to the dog and transferred them to Animal Control.
