Ocean Pines Woman Attacked By Pit Bull


An Ocean Pines woman was sent to the hospital last week after being attacked by a pit bull. 52-year-old Mary Ernst was visiting a friend with her dog when the pit bull got out of the fence and bit Ernst in the leg. 82-year-old William Jones was able to get the dog off Ernst by kicking it, but the pit bull then went into Jones’ garage and attacked his dog. Ernst was taken to Atlantic General Hospital. The pit bull was later euthanized. The owners of the dog were given a lease law violation and $200 in fines.
