BREMERTON — A pet dog mauled a 10-month-old boy and bit his mother on her hands and arms when she went to help him Tuesday evening at a home in Bremerton.
Fire department emergency responders say the boy was alone in a room playing with a broom when the family dog attacked.
The Kitsap Sun reports the woman and her son were transported to Harrison Medical Center.
Firefighter Troy Reynolds said the boy suffered substantial facial injuries.
The dog was described as a medium-sized boxer mix.
