San Angelo Fire Department Medics responded to the scene and provided first aid to the man before transporting him to Shannon Medical Center for treatment.  He is reportedly in stable condition.


    Animal Services Officers who responded to the scene utilized tranquilizer darts in an attempt to sedate the dogs before taking them into custody.  Shortly after being tranquilized, one of the dogs charged a San Angelo Police Officer who was assisting Animal Services.  The Officer shot the dog with his Taser, preventing further attack or escape through an open fence.


    The dogs? owner surrendered custody to Animal Services and they were removed from the property.  The dogs will be quarantined at the Animal Shelter for ten days.
